Skip to comments.Lawrence O'Donnell calls Red states"welfare" states; urges Blue states to secede

Sorry about the vanity, but this is a must read for conservatives.
On the McLaughlin Group this weekend, Lawrence ODonnell actually stated that the Red states were welfare and that the Blue states paid for the Red states. He further urged the Blue states to secede from the Red states. And he was quite serious. In the past few weeks ODonnell has had foaming-at-the-mouth mental breakdowns, especially on MSNBC, but when he made his comments on the McLaughlin Group, he was quite calm and collected.
First, are these the people to whom Bush is required to reach out to?
Second, as McLaughlin would say, Bye, bye!
Didn't Buchanan point out that it was the Republicans in those so-called "Blue" states that paid all the taxes?
O'Donnell is a lunatic.
As somebody else has pointed out, the blue states aren't so much states as urban areas within otherwise red states. It'll be pretty lonely for them, but let them secede and then have to outsource their military protection to the rest of us.
No, the Blue states have the welfare people. Both the filthy rich big city people and the welfare leeches are in the big city.
This guy is infected with the same mental illness as Gore.
Main Entry: se·di·tion
Etymology: Latin seditio, literally, separation, from sed apart + itio act of going, from ire to go
: the crime of creating a revolt, disturbance, or violence against lawful civil authority with the intent to cause its overthrow or destruction
No to mention their groceries.
Why doesn't O'Donnell do himself a favor and relocate to Cuba?
He'll be much happier there.
Lawrence ODonnell is such a dolt that none of the Dems told him they're all moving to Canada.
The"Red States" are welfare? From a New Yorker take my word most of you don`t know what a welfare state is.
O'Donnell is a lunatic and a LIAR, LIAR, LIAR, LIAR, LIAR, LIAR, LIAR, LIAR, LIAR... ( My O'Donnell imitation in a debate).
Cool. Maybe now the left half of O'Donnell's brain will secede from the right half of his brain. On second thought, it appears that that particular act of secession may have already occurred.
Actually, it is the red suburbs that pay for welfare for the inner city and rural folks in almost every state.
Why doesn't he just drop the pretense, fall on the floor screaming and kick his legs.
I love watching him. It just makes me feel warm and happy all over!
Waaah! Democrat cying baby logo needed.
Big mistake to think that the "blue" can be self sufficient without the "red."
let's use some aristotelian logic. let's get rid of welfare and see which states and counties scream the loudest!
Not sure where O'Dumbel got his facts, but could he be looking at the percapta govt income vs. percapita govt spending? If so, then such things as defense spending to keep his blue state @$$ safe he has classified as "welfare".
Hate to break to this to you Larry but there are no blue "states", just blue "cities".
Lol.....the DUmmies have latched on to this idea. They're itchin' for a fight and now want to learn about firearms for the Civil War they imagine to be coming. Funny stuff.
Those of us in the People's Republic of CA know very well what a welfare state is, too!
This guy got his colors mixed up, that's all. He meant to say blue states. Uh, sure, right.
He's yet another leftist loony.
What a dumbass! The red states FEED the blue states. Succeed Blue States, PLEASE! You all be dead in a month....which is not a bad idea when you think about it!
I hear that, I live just outside of Buffalo, NY
Yes, Patrick J. did point that out.
This is a running concept on DU that Blue states "support" Red States and they should cut off funding.
Other nutty ideas on DU:
1. The election was stolen.
2. Bush, Cheny will be impeached, indicted.
3. Blue states should secede.
4. Conservative media must be outlawed.
5. The Dems must move further left.
6. Cut off all contact with Republican relatives.
7. Bush and Rove are gay.
But the most popular is that the election was stolen. Many, many threads on this.
My thoughts exactly. Why can't we arrest these SOB's like he and Moore and Soros and try them for sedition? When they're convicted we can strip them of their citizenship and deport their worthless butts.
Fidel won't have him.
Erring sister, go thy way!
Remember "let the bastards freeze in the dark" talk? Larry's mouth could add "hungry" to the thought.
Who let Larry out of his cage?
Exactly right....Im guessing Larry hasn't looked at the red/blue county map.....
Was O'Donnell in the "bug house" when he spewed these pearls of wisdom?
They would lose big time. Leftist in this country are way behind the "private ownership of firearms" curve.
They're sooo cute when they're angry.
Funny thing is, the guy used to present a decdent argument. I may have most often disagreed with him, but at least he seemed mentally stable. As someone else has pointed out, O'Donnell has apparently experienced the same mental breakdown that Gore experienced - and which has gone untreated - a couple of years ago.
Define "Northeast Blue State Minute"
Pray for O'Donnell. He is clearly on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Although we don't know the reason--be it drug abuse, sexual identity confusion, addiction to gay porn--whatever the reason, let's hope he is able to pull through.
These people are so childish.
It's starting already...
Call me all the names you want, but this will at least be tried. Under the right circumstances, with the right coordination with the MSM, it may even get off the ground. Fortunately, the Constitution requires a 2/3 vote for conviction and removal from office. And there are not 22 RINOs in the Senate, even on a good day.
Since Im in central Illinois, all red south of 1-80...I agree...
What a crock of horse manure. He's equating a win for Kerry in the blue states with a sufficient number of votes to carry a call for secession in a nation that has an established precedent for dealing with seceding states.
On the other hand, a motion in the Congress to boot out states like Massachusetts might be perfectly legit.
Let them secede and see who ends up providing them groceries at exorbitant prices.
