Political Activist Ed Schultz Guilty Of Doing What He Blames Others For; Schultz Boasted Of His International Investments In 2010
MSNBC political activist Ed Schultz has been busy in the last few days, attacking presidential candidate Mitt Romney for his international investments. Schultz has critiqued Romney's Swiss Bank accounts as "unpatriotic" and "un-American". Apparently Canada isn't a foreign country.
Back in April 2010, Schultz bought a fishing lodge in the north woods of Canada - and boasted about it on his radio show. At the time, Schultz bragged about he he had become an "international businessman". He also talked about flying his plane to the airstrip right behind the lodge.
On his show, Schultz relayed the following:
Now, here's a good socialist story for you. My wife and I have purchased, I love to fish, I've fished all my life, I love it. And we have been going to Thunderbird Lodge in Manitoba since we been married and we love this place. I love it because I can fly my 210 into the airstrip right behind the lodge. It's got a 3,500-foot strip, gravel strip, right behind the lodge on Wrong Lake in Manitoba. And it was just easily accessible, I don't have to get in a float plane. It's exclusive on the lake, it's been a lodge for years, it was built by the natives back in 1975 for economic development and then it changed hands over the years, it's had a number of owners.
And the owner passed away about three years ago and it sat there and I approached the family and this winter, Wendy and I got it for a song. And we're excited about it and I love to fish and so that's what I'm doing.
But anyway, I guess we all have to have our castles, don't we, since we don't make any money, Glenn (Beck). But anyway, so yes, no, it will, it'll take the Cheyenne, it'll take the 206, and we're going to, we've commercialized. I am now an international businessman. I have incorporated in Canada.
What's the old saying about people who live in "glass houses"?
