Did he ever acused Bill Clinton of not going into the military the same way he is doing it to Romney and his sons? Did he? If so, when....

O’Donnell is one of those older white guys who would like to be spanked by Obama in a bathhouse.

Nobody in this crowd serves, not O'Donnell nor the guy running for Commander in Chief during wartime, nor his sons. It was just like Mitt and his father during the Vietnam War, Mitt was posturing as a strong patriot also, while refusing to serve, no man in Romney's direct line ever has, not ever, in their entire 170 years in America.

I wonder if O’Donnell’s wife was a notch in Shwarzenegger’s belt, she was his leading lady in *Raw Deal* (1986) The Shwarzenegger seemed to hump anything that moved.

O’Donnell sure likes to poke at people’s names. His daughter sure has a heck of a name—Elizabeth Buckley Harrold O’Donnell.

Is Buckley the daughter’s husband’s name? If so, that poor man had to parallel park to fit his name in there!

O’Donnell is a loon. I think he’s kind of kitty-cat whooped and plays macho, abusive, TV host to feel better. Just my opinion, ya know.

Looks like Lawrence comes from a privileged background himself. His dad was an attorney, and he attended an elite private high school in Needham Mass, then Harvard.

Talk about a silver spoon.

I’m 5’3” 120 lb country born & raised (lots of male cousins to practice on) female and I”ll take Larry up on the deal of taking a swing at him!


There is no actual deal, though. This is just pretend tough guy talk coming from a guy that nobody watches who wants people to talk about him. So he got what he wanted for tonight. Truthfully, if you ran into him somewhere and said BOO to him he would immediately call the cops. What makes this idiot so brave is the convenience of knowing that the person he’s challenging doesn’t even know that he exists.

The real story here is that with all of the anger and occasional violence in our country in these times this moron’s network allows him to put this kind of garbage out over the air. If he still has a show to host tomorrow (and of course he will) then that means NBC approves of this type of behavior.

And the bar continues to be set lower and lower...

So he must have had a deferment. That means someone else got drafted who otherwise would not have.

In 1971, Romney was married, with two children and attending Brigham Young University.

Of course, he had a deferment. As did millions of others with a family and/or attending college.

I was talking about O’Donnell. I only mentioned it because he called Romney’s son a coward and afraid to fight. He has also called Mitt Romney a draft dodger in the past.

Lawrence O’Donnell is a mean, smug, evil bastard who thinks he is smarter than the rest of us. How NBC allows him to continue proves they are as crazy and demented as O’Donnell.

*********

The media watchdog website NewsBusters reported that on Tuesday night O’Donnell said, “Now part of Romney’s religion problem is that he’s a part of a new religion. Established religions like Judaism, which is about 4,000 years old, and Christianity, which is about 2,000 years old, don’t easily warm up to new religions like Romney’s, which is only 182 years old. Mormonism was created by a guy in upstate New York in 1830 when he got caught having sex with the maid and explained to his wife that God told him to do it. Forty-eight wives later, Joseph Smith’s lifestyle was completely sanctified in the religion he invented to go with it. Which Mitt Romney says he believes.”

At the conservative National Review Online, Kevin Williamson dropped the hammer on O’Donnell in a piece titled, simply, “Lawrence O’Donnell, Bigot.”

“Thanks for the Muppet News Flash, Larry,” Williamson wrote. “The exact nature of Smith’s polygamy is contested (his only children were from his first wife, leading some to believe that his polygamy was of a non-sexual nature), but, yes, he was a polygamist. So was Solomon. So was Abraham. … Mormons gave up polygamy a long time ago. It’s not the 19th century any more. But anti-Mormonism is this season’s fashionable bigotry.”

This is not the first time O’Donnell has used intolerant speech against Mormons on television, Williamson noted. In 2007, before he got his gig on MSNBC, O’Donnell didn’t bother feigning objectivity during a televised appearance on the political talk show “The McLaughlin Group.” On that occasion O’Donnell described Mormonism with adjectives like demented, crazy and ridiculous; he also called Smith a “lying, fraudulent criminal.”

Not long after the McLaughlin Group imbroglio, O’Donnell attempted to clarify his positions about Mitt Romney and the Mormon faith by penning a blog post for the Huffington Post.

“The more you know about Romney’s religion, the more you want to ask him questions about it,” O’Donnell wrote. “Your religion was founded by an alcoholic criminal named Joseph Smith who committed bank fraud and claimed God told him polygamy was cool after his first wife caught him having an affair with the maid and who then went on to have 33 wives, and you really believe every word that he said and wrote? Do you really believe that the American Indian is genetically descended from Israelites? Would it shake your belief if DNA testing showed no such relationship between Indian tribes and Jews? Do you really believe that Jesus Christ came to America?”

So what we have here is a wannabe tough guy who calls out people who he knows he will never have to answer to, either because they don’t know he exists or because they died nearly two centuries ago. Maybe this guy should stop worrying about what everyone else is doing and try and do a couple of decent segments on that show of his that nobody watches. Then he can put a nice audition tape together and maybe trick someone into hiring him at a better network... which would be any network.

Dodging humble, difficult, military service and war, is not the same as seeking power, wealth, and desiring to become the most powerful, the most pampered man on earth, they are not the same thing.

At age 65, Mitt Romney is living a rich man’s dream of global power and recognition, he is not sacrificing and suffering like the humble, anonymous young patriots that he will send into harms way.

By your measure, Bill Clinton, “serve[d]-big time”, Obama “serve[d]-big time”.

Desire to serve in Vietnam: Different years, two different Romneys.

*”I was not planning on signing up for the military. It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam...”
Boston Herald, 5/2/94

*”I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there and in some ways it was frustrating not to feel like I was there as part of the troops that were fighting in Vietnam.”
Boston Globe, 6/24/07

Liberals don’t know how to represent their ideas in a competitive world of thought. Political correctness involves absolute submission to liberalism’s economic slogans, and their brand of racism and sexism. When faced with uppity people who argue against their dictates and whom they can not fire or fail in class, they turn to the only other option - smash mouth thugishness.

What a blowhard. This is the extent of liberal “smart”; smash mouth attempts at political intimidation. Lawrence and his big mouth will be in the trunk of the DNC bus soon. It going to be crowded in there...and nasty. Sad that they have gotten so much power in this country.

No.

And I am sick of the nonsense that one has to have some personal connection to the military in order to have a valid opinion about going to war.

Either we have civilian control of the military, or we don't. Either just being a citizen is enough, or we have a military junta.

If someone can't point out the real merits or drawbacks of someone's foreign policy ideas, specious crap like "you just want other people's children to die while yours go to college" just makes you sound like a Democrat.

My immediate family has four Marine Corp vets in it, and my relatives have served in every war going back to the Revolution.

We support Mitt Romney wholeheartedly. Obama is horrible. He has set the middle East on fire and with his deranged rules of engagement endangered our troops everywhere. It's Romney or Obama, and this military family will go with Romney 100%.

Individuals not serving is one thing, but the Romneys are unique, they have refused military service not only since before WWII, but all the way back to when they arrived here to serve Joseph Smith, 170 years ago.

They have a perfect, unbroken record, a family rule written in stone, mix that in with the anti-American acts of the grandfather, fleeing the country, and of the earlier ancestors, and we see a pattern.

The only reason Lawrence is even on TV is that no one even watches MSNBC anymore (if anyone ever did), so he can rant and rave and huff and puff all he wants and no one cares. Tagg should have him meet on Hannity one night and have a boxing ring all set up. Hannity can ref the fight. It won't be long. PS.. No gloves, bare knuckle like in the old days. Larry would not show....he is a coward and is tough only when on his set

No. I see his dons as individual adults not bound by their fathers political views. I think we here can all identify with a desire to dee Romney elected president even if we don’t agree with everything he wants to do. His dons are equally free.

BTW and FWIW, Mitt Romney’s draft lottery was 300. The fact that he didn’t volunteer to serve in what is possibly the worst bit of bipartisan foreign policy in the country’s history is not necessarily wrong.

Bull, the lottery came years after Romney came of military age and avoided military service first with student deferments, and then with a special deferment from the Mormon church, from his dad's ward, which sent him to France while his father campaigned as an anti-war candidate, a deferment that was not available to black Mormons, and which the government banned after national uproars and legal challenges to the Mormons being in charge of passing out deferments to their young males.

*”I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there and in some ways it was frustrating not to feel like I was there as part of the troops that were fighting in Vietnam.” Boston Globe, 6/24/07 Romney men do not do military service, ever, they have refused to serve since they arrived here 170 years ago, no war, no draft, no sense of duty (or even adventure), has ever snagged a man in Mitt's direct line.
