Skip to comments.Lawrence O'Donnell of MSNBC Has Lost His Mind
Posted on 08/24/2004 7:37:03 PM PDT by onyx eyes
On MSNBC tonight, Lawrence O'Donnell, political commentator for MSNBC, sounds like he knows what he is talking about, yet, his arguments in defense of John Kerry, are so asinine and untrue, I could hardly believe my ears.
Makes you wonder what color the sky is in his world...
This should have been posted as Breaking News.
They're cracking up, and it's cracking me up.
I agree. It's been A LONG WHILE since I've watched MSNBC, and tonight I was flipping around looking for Russian Plane Crash news.
I remember O'Donnell from way back, and he used to do a much better job of hiding his scorn and bias. I USED to think he was pretty savvy, politically, although he leaned the wrong way. It's possible to respect someone's political SKILL, while disagreeing with them.
I was sorely disappointed in his political astuteness tonight.
He seems on the verge of putting his thumbs in his ears and sticking his tongue out at his opponents.
I had to break out the Nerf gun for that sob.
The hatred these people are showing is frightening. We really are going to have to ramp up a much more vigorous anti-drug campaign.
We know who he is advising for sure.
Quite similar to the way the press responded when their boy Clinton was accused of his first batch of scandals. As usual, all the pretence of being objective was dropped.
O'Donnell is a long time Democratic operative. Worked actively in Democratic operatives. Folks, the only way we are ever going to get objective,unbiased news coverage is to hit them in the pocketbook. Subscribe to Direct TV or Comcast or Verizon...cancell Time Warner, NYT, LA Times, Boston Globe etc. etc. All I can think of presently, please post other names.
He said Steve Gardner wasn't with Kerry on any of the questioned medals. What's with that?
I will be so glad when my own book arrives so I will really know what's going onl
You can't lose what you never had
"I had to break out the Nerf gun for that sob."
L0L! Glad to hear Im not the only one who keeps one (actually 2) loaded up beside the remote!
The good news is that nobody to the right of Barbra Streisand is buying this hooey fron Kerry's defenders. It's over.
It's good therapy, really!
I agree. And he let O'Donnell keep talking during Buchanan's turn.
Truer words... I almost hurled my dinner listening to him -- and to think he writes for West Wing~ he's starting to believe his own fiction.. that s%^ty grin really got to me, he knew heasying through his teeth.
He not only said Steve Gardner was not on the boat with Kerry, he said the whole book was a pack of lies. Or, was it, fabricated?
I was also watching Scarborough, but I couldn't take it anymore and turned to the Home & Garden channel. Right now people are re-designing their bedroom that has an ocean view.
Today I was at an office where headline news was on, and Bob Dole was putting down Kerry. Then the announcer said that Dole was getting mean again, implying that he once had that type of reputation.
I ordered Unfit for Command. I'm contributing to those guys, but I can't take watching the media attack them anymore tonight.
Whatsup with Scarboroug? Ever since Boston -- yet when Bush was in Florida I saw him sitting right behind him while he was speaking???
Of course no one's as bad as Olberman & Matthews... did anyone catch the snide comment Olberman made tonight about Bush saying: "if he'd bothered to have someone READ this mag to him he'd be shocked to hear Pataki wants to run in 08???
It's obvious O'Donnell has not read the book or even the latest news on the subject. He's still repeating the same Dem talking points from 2 weeks ago that none of these guys were on the same boat with Kerry and that every single accusation has been shown to be untrue.
I heard that same thing from Wolf Blitzer Sunday as a teaser.... "Is Bob Dole getting mean again....?"
And next, they've got Bob Kerrey attacking Bob Dole. Well, I don't know how to fight this kind of media bias, or media-control, more like it. All we can do is try and tell our loved ones, our friends, get the word out. They say, Word of Mouth Is The Strongest Advertizing.
Never liked him. Pompous and showboat. Know it all type. Not worth sitting watching him. Guess to be part of MSNBC the prerequisite is pompous, showboat and theatrical. O'Donnell is all three.
I looked around to see if anyone else in the room reacted to that comment and decided they were mostly clueless.
Well, at least watching Scarborough was better than watching Greta.
It has always infuriated me that Bob Dole was considered "mean" until he lost the '96 election. How surprised the media and public were when he turned out to be good natured, loved on Capitol Hill, and downright funny.
It's really important to buy Unfit for Command. If it stays on the NY Slimes bestseller list, it's a statement of support. I plan to give a copy for a gift in Sept.
Those Swiftboat guys must be in a state of shock. I never underestimate Democrats, so nothing they do shocks me anymore. Dems are ruthless and will stop at nothing to destroy these fine men.
Well, like, I thought we had at least ONE station we could watch. Guess not. Loose lips sink ships or I'd say why, I had thought this.
O'Donnell is an admitted Democrat so you know he's biased. I don't know why they can't hire a senior analyst who's actually fair.
Bob Dole is a good guy, and he would have made an honorable president. Bill Clinton wasn't fit to shine his shoes.
Print out and wear as a Campaign Button or go HERE to print.
Being old has some advantages -- not many, that's for sure! I remember Dole's first run for president when his rather sharp-tongued humor got him the reputation of being "mean." Of course it was left-wing media spin as always, but they made it stick. Dole developed a "softer" approach in his second presidential run. Since he didn't stand a snowball's chance in hell of winning and was too old to run again, the media finally admitted he was funny and lovable. Now that he's getting some traction against Kerry, Blitzer resurrects the "mean" lie. The media's the problem folks. Nothing will change until it does. American media are the Western arm of World Socialism.
Defund the liberal media! Simply do not spend your $$ on their products. It really is that simple.
Whether Gardner was with Kerry at a medal-opportunity or not isn't the point. Gardner WAS with Kerry hours BEFORE a medal-opportunity, at which time Kerry received the precise wounds he CLAIMED to have suffered DURING the medal-opportunity. What are the chances, Gardner asks, of sustaining the exact injury twice in a day?
I wonder why a analytical mind with clout, such as conservative Tom Clancy cannot get the truth of this thing and lay it out in a orderly manner for the American people?
Clancy has that grasp of how military things work, I think he could destroy the skerry shills in one ten minute segment.
Oh, have ya'll seen that skerry and his band of brothers are all alone going to take the Mekong Delta in their "SHIP". And it will all be in living color in his soon to be released movie made by the usual Hollyweird types, is to be unveiled before or during the NYC GOP convention.
My G-D, 4 months, three band aids, and as per the lefties, the man is the greatest war hero since Audie Murphy.
SICKO, SICKO skerry is a SICKO.
They're going to keep on until they movie themselves out of reality -- oops already done that.
Tom Clancy, IF we could get him, would, as you said, stop them dead in their tracks...Oh, I dream...
"It's all lies" is the talking point of the year for the rats, who should know a lie when they hear one, since they speak them so often!
They must have all gotten the DNC memo.
Don't count on Tom Clancy - he would probably go to bat for Kerry. Such a pompous man. He could have assisted the U.S. in defending against terrorist efforts - he refused to use his experience to assist our government in identifying possible scenarios.
He came across really bad on H&C trying to impress with how very superior intellectually he was.
All Tom Clancy is, is a detail-oriented ex-insurance clerk or something along those lines. I don't think he is as smart as he pretends. I saw him on C-Span, dont remember what the show was about, but, like you, was not impressed. I dont think he could have helped the gov. very much, he writes in a linear fashion which means he only knows what he places straight out before him.
Oh, I should have also said, the reason I had first agreed on Clancy as a help to us, was when thinking of him writing for our side. But when you reminded me, I knew better.
Such a pity - he could have been effective but you might be right - only effective when all in front of him.
My unsubstantiated feeling is that the station has him on a short leash.That might have started around the time he was interviewing demonstrators, in a non-liberal way, outside the convention center in Boston.

I too, have noticed some of the more fair-minded liberals (who at least were somewhat rational and/or honest in their evaluations) have become Kerry shills. O'Donnell, Susan Estrich and Doug Brinkley have all gone over the edge. If Kerry loses this election, it will be hard for us conservatives to ever think these pundants are truly legitimate again (it's all about winning with them).
