Schultz Uses MSNBC 'Lean Forward' Line As Explicit Dem Campaign Slogan

October 15th, 2010 7:19 PM

Not that there was any doubt, but we now have confirmation that the new MSNBC "Lean Forward" series of promos is all about . . .  promoting the election of Democrats.

On his MSNBC show this evening, Ed Schultz used the "lean forward" phrase in urging "base Democrats" to go to the polls to defeat Republicans and support President Obama's agenda.

ED SCHULTZ: Fox News, and the Tea Party, and the Republicans, folks, they are all one in [sic] the same. They are on a mission to make President Obama fail, and America fail. Base Democrats are the only people who can stop this crowd. Eighteen days from now, the choice couldn't be any more clear: either this country will go back to the 1800s, or lean forward to the 21st century.

Question: does Schultz's statement render the Lean Forward promos MSNBC contributions in kind to the DNC?

PS: Note Schultz's suggestion that to oppose Pres. Obama is to oppose "America".  Call me crazy, but I'd say you can love America without loving the Obama agenda!  Whatever happened to "dissent is patriotic"?
