Ed Schultz To Wisconsin Recall Supporters: Obama Thought ‘It Was Important For You To Do This On Your Own’

MSNBC host Ed Schultz covered the Wisconsin recall election in front of a live audience in the Badger State on Tuesday evening. In a segment with Kristen Crowell, executive director of We Are Wisconsin, Schultz asked what she thought of President Barack Obama not campaigning in the state. Before she could answer, Schultz said that he thought Obama was telling Wisconsinites that “I can’t lift all the time” and the President felt that “it was important for you to do this on your own as the state of Wisconsin.”

“You know, I have heard conservative broadcasters in this state and Fox News trying to make the case that President Obama hasn’t shown up,” said Schultz. “Now, I have been in half a dozen cities over the weekend – I haven’t heard one person say President Obama’s name in connection to this vote.”
