Liberals in Disarray: Lanny Davis and Jane Hamsher Go After Each Other on The Ed Show - Video 12/17/09
Here is video of MSNBC's Ed Schultz talking with a liberal panel about the revolt of the Left against the Obama White House's Health Care Plan in the U.S. Senate.
Schultz talked with Lanny Davis first, who has criticized the Left for revolting against the President and the Democrats' Health Care Bill in the Senate. Davis as much as made the case for just getting something passed now, saying "we can improve it next year."
Schultz argued with Davis that the Obama plan is not standing up for the uninsured, but "for the insurance companies." He called the current plan a "sellout."
Schultz then brought in liberal Jane Hamsher from Firedoglake blog who went after Davis, saying he is partner in a law firm that is representing many pharmaceutical companies.
Davis then blasted Hamsher for her attacks on Joe Lieberman's wife. The two went back and forth with rather personal attacks.
Toward the end of the video, Schultz talked to Laura Flanders and a representative from the Heritage Foundation. Flanders supported Hamsher's attacks on Lanny Davis.
The last few days have shown example after example of the Left in disarray. Joe Lieberman was treated shabbily today by Al Franken on the Senate Floor, and yesterday saw Howard Dean and Mary Landrieu in a heated exchange on the Christ Matthews show.
