Ed Schultz Frets Obama May ‘Butcher the Economy Even Further’

‘Does President Obama want to be remembered as the guy that butchered the economy even further?’

D'oh! Ed Schultz Fears Obama Will Damage Economy 'Even Further' (NewsBusters)

Radio libtalker and MSNBC action hero Ed Schultz used to be conservative, as he'll occasionally remind his audience. Earlier this week on his radio show, he lapsed back.

The occasion was a discussion with a caller over President Obama's apparent support for the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a trade pact that would involve the U.S., Canada, Mexico and nine other nations in South America and Asia. (Audio after the jump)

Schultz has been an outspoken opponent of the proposal, as have many labor unions, and he cited a curious reason for why Obama should oppose it as well.
