    I sure am glad Lawrence O'Donnell did this so everyone can see maturity and intelligence in action. He after all holds forth nightly for all things Liberal and Socialist so it is nice when they do this so you can see the proof in the pudding. Now, before we all start, O'Donnell has labeled himself Socialist so it's his idea not mine.

      O'Donnell's a bigot. The thing is - just like other liberals who are in full meltdown mode right now, O'Donnell can't control himself.

      He trashes other's religions.

      What a complete loser.

        He is in the same category with Bill Maher who is why I don't have HBO. I will not contribute to his paycheck.

      Dang, O'Donnell took that way out of context. Just another example violent liberal rhetoric to add to the pile. I wonder why he isn't covering and condemning the federal reserve bomber. I guess condemning real life violence isn't on the plate. No big surprise.

      It's a waste of time to over analyze Lawrence O'Donnell. He is simply a didactic left wing fool. I have always noticed that he has his bumper sticker thoughts lined up so that he doesn't have to tax his brain with critical thinking.

    1. So nice to see you expanding your research repertoire beyond breitbart.com, JS.
    This "the blaze dot com" seems to be a treasure trove for you.

    2. From your post, I expected the linked article to be about economics in some way. I mean, you used the word "Socialist" (capital "S") TWICE in your description. So naturally, that leads the reader to assume the link will somehow relate to the keyword Socialist.

    3. But now I see that the rant about O'Donnell's being a liberal and a Socialist was simply more of your usual blanket indictment. It's just a pile-on of disdain designed to stir up your HP forum base. Ok then.

    4. The real point of your thread is that Lawrence O'Donnell is he is immature and not intelligent. Your proof is the linked segment from last night's "The Last Word" show.

    Actually, JS, the internet has been abuzz with young Romneyman's bravado comment. See my link below to a plethora of Google results on the subject.
    O'Donnell is hardly the first or only newsman to comment on it.
    Where your argument that O'Donnell is not intelligent falls flat is that you fail to see what Mr. O'Donnell DID with the comment.
    He contextualized it.
    Tagg Romney's words in and of themselves are newsworthy for a variety of reasons.
    However, they are even more relevant as the entre into a larger issue. Mr. O'Donnell did just that. He extrapolated the instigating comment to address the larger issue.
    A larger issue, which, coincidentally (or not) Tagg's own mother was addressing on the same day, on a different TV show, "The View."

    The issue, JS, is that Tagg Romney, along with his 4 brothers, his father, his grandfather, and a long line of Romney men, are cowards. Although each has come of age during a time of war, none has served. Although the Romneymen are adamently pro war (have you seen the photos of young Mitt during college protesting FOR the Vietnam War?), not one of them is willing to suit up and show up to defend America.

    As to your claim that Mr. O'Donnell's invitation to Tagg Romney is immature, that is a matter of opinion.
    Ultimately, how is Mr. O'Donnell any different that Clint Eastwood in this regard?
    Ultimately, both are talking to nothing but an empty chair.

      Clint Eastwood did not threaten violence.
      Do you really need a list of Democrats who didn't serve? Hmmmm?
      When you get off sites like Huffington Post I will get off others. Blaze was not the only place this video was aired and they didn't originate the idea. That was just where I happened on it. Shoot the messenger right?

      I guess we should admire Larry for wanting to punch out the son of the man you and others here obviously H A T E.
      Yes I said H A TE.
      Oh yeah that's right, you can get away with doing that. Liberals do it properly right?

        1. Lawrence O'Donnell did not threaten violence either. He INVITED Tagg Romney, who DID threaten violence against the POTUS, to back up his tough guy words with action. What he said was, the president has never actually called your (Tagg's) dad a LIAR. I have. So if calling your father a LIAR makes you want to rumble, use me, not the POTUS, as your target. Let's get it on is not a THREAT of violence.

        2. I am aware that The Blaze is not the only place this video aired. As I said, and provided a Google link to pages and pages of pickups of this video, it is getting media play today.
        It is sometimes useful to go back to the source, however. As it happens, I watched "The Last Word" last night and saw the entire segment. The invitation to take a swing at him was actually the END of the segment.

        For what it's worth -- probably zero to you, but possibly something to others who show up here and might wish to get the full picture --  I am providing a link to the entire Lawrence O'Donnell segment which shows how O'Donnell built up to his "showdown with Taggert."

        3. Shoot the messenger? That's an odd comment. Since you stereotype me and every other hubber who dares to disagree with the information you regurgitate from breitbart.com and now theblaze.com as LIBERALS, you should also assume that I reject the Second Amendment and am vehemently anti-gun. Therefore, whatever outlet I might have for my so-called HATE, it would not include SHOOTING anyone.
        Although I would obviously never do it (lacking the firepower on philosophical and moral grounds), I cannot resist making a comparison between talking to you and taking aim at fish in a barrel.
        lol lol

        Have a swell day, and keep spreading the love, JS.

        Rewriting the Romney men and war

        Men in the Romney family support wars, but never serve in them. That subject came up when Ann Romney visited ABC's "The View," and Lawrence O'Donnell takes a look in the Rewrite.

          I can hardly fault the man for wanting to defend his father.....do you?
          I am not a bit surprised you were watching his show.
          I have rarely encountered more hatred toward an individual as you are currently oozing out towards Mitt and his family.
          I can only assume from that you have come to the realization he will likely be your next President.

              MM you made and make it sound like Tagg had no right to feel that way about his father merely because he had been attacked by none other than Barack Obama. That is what apparently incensed both Larry and you.
              There is this unbelievably cult like thing around Barack that produces this out of his supporters.
              Larry himself proclaimed to be a Socialist. Once again those aren't my words those are his.
              I am supposed to ignore that he said that right?

            JS, practically every thread you start is about Obama and his socialist, evil ways. Yet, when a member of the opposition critiques Romney and his ways, you refer to it as HATE. This is a massive double standard on your part.

              You don't realize this but you are helping prove my point here.
              I can only imagine if Rush had challenged Barack to a fistfight....can't you?

            Aw, come on. You can't really be so lazy you don't even watch the video, RG. Really?
            He did not literally say "let's get it on." Did you see those words in quotes in my post?

            The reality is, a conservative DID issue a terrorist threat.
            He threatened the President of the United States with bodily harm.
            He's lucky the Secret Service didn't arrest him.
            But the Obama team is taking Tagg's comment in stride.
            He was actually lured into making the comment by the radio host.
            That evil liberal media strikes again, eh?

            Lawrence O'Donnell turned it into a comedy routine to make a larger point.

            If you look at the reaction here, it's actually the conservatives who are getting their panties in a bunch over this.

            Once again, you can dish it out, but when someone calls you on it, you you simply cannot take it.
            Which is exactly O'Donnell's point.
            Which apparently has gone right over your heads.

            Maybe you guys should stick to Rush. He seems to be more at your level.

              Now I know you believe you have lost.
              I am sorry if i were ten feet from Barack and felt he threatened my family in some way what do you think  I would do? That anyone would do? That's not terrorism and you know it but the level of hysteria about Romney and his possible election is getting silly.

                Even if you do come right out and call someone a liar, you are not physically threatening them or their family. To suggest that you want to take a shot at the President of the US, on the other hand. Well, think about it...

                  No it's a federal crime but I fully understand the feelings and emotions of a son to his father. the idea that because that is Barack Obama and therefore you must put those feelings aside is ludicrous.
                  We have that man on far too high a pedestal.
                  This would be pointed out in a millisecond were this still George W. Bush.

      We are living a "meme of the day" news mentality. 
      We have seen -- on both sides -- that jumping to be first on the scoop, and/or doggedly proclaiming something to be true when it is subsequently (read: within hours or at least a couple of days) found to be incorrect, is the norm in this election cycle.

      There are serious articles being published that call into question policy positions on both candidates. Why are these not getting widespread attention?
      Probably because they don't meet the reality TV outrageousness and baseness standard.
      sad
