MSNBC's O'Donnell Accuses Herman Cain -- Who Worked for the Navy -- of Being a Draft Dodger

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain and MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell had quite a heated battle on Thursday's "The Last Word."

During one segment, after O'Donnell besmirched his guest for not enlisting for military service during the Vietnam War despite having worked for the Department of Navy as a ballistics analyst, Cain marvelously asked, "Do you stay up night to come up with the wording in these questions or do you have someone writing them for you?"

The one thing leftist lunatics like scumbag O’Donnell really despise, and what drives them crazy, is an intelligent, conservative Black man (or woman) who has dared to leave the “liberal plantation”.

The Anti-War left bash anybody who wasn’t in combat as being cowards. It’s tiring considering most military personnel AREN’T in combat!

Anybody who thinks that the logistics and support personnel are “draft dodgers” insults millions of patriots.

It’s also hypocritical when they then run Vets as Anti-War candidates, and it turns out they weren’t in combat despite their posturing (like Pat Murphy from PA).

Too bad Cain didn’t skewer that puffboy by asking him what was his draft number and where he was doing his military service in 1971

Gee, a Republican appears on a show on MSNBC and gets ambushed by dishonest, unfair questions.

What a freaking surprise. I never would have guessed this would happen in a million years.

If Republicans choose go on these shows, they they should expect to be ambushed and attacked. The truth doesn’t matter. That’s just how it is.

It’s so nice to see Lawrence O’Donnell speaking on behalf of the Vietnam Vets to the “offense” of Herman Cain working for the Navy and not being selected for draft.

1 - How does this moron speak for anybody who served, even John Kerry, who, in fact I have heard, is a Vietnam Vet?

2 - Is not working for the Navy in the role Cain did doing his duty as well?

3 - Why does military service matter to media types when it can be twisted to present Repub’s in a dim light?

Is it because there is a dim bulb attempting to shine a light?

They don’t call Larry ‘Mad Dog’ for nothing! I’m surprised he didn’t start jeering, ‘Liar, liar, liar!’ as backround noise during the interview with Cain.

WATCH THE VIDEO!!!! Cain is terrific at dealing with this BS and doesn’t let ODonnell keep him off topic for long.

I think that coming of age in a time when blacks were considered sub-human, Herman Cain is used to working with & rising above those who wish to hold him down. He also knows in order to get blacks to hear him, he has to go where the majority are listening. He's either really naive or really smart. Say what you will. The man is working very hard to be seen & heard right now.

He would just reply that he’s not seeking to be commander in chief.
