Ed Schultz suspects the president’s #My2K hashtag might have been hijacked

Heh. What makes you ask, Ed?

Yes, #My2K has been trending all day, and conservatives have had a lot of fun hijacking the White House’s latest attempt to portray an extension of President Bush’s tax cut as a $2,000 check showing up in the mail next year. Back in August, the administration had launched a similar hashtag, #2200dollars, and asked followers to share how President Obama’s middle-class tax cut would help their families.

Cue the world’s tiniest violin. If calling out the White House on another deceptive attempt to lobby for a tax increase on “the rich” makes us trolls, we’ll be under the bridge waiting to hijack the next one.
