More Abrasive Than Usual, MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell Challenges Tagg Romney to Fight Him
NewsBusters ^ | 10/20/12 | Ryan Robertson

Posted on 10/20/2012 8:02:08 AM PDT by DFG

In response to an innocuous joke Tagg Romney made on a radio show in North Carolina, Lawrence O'Donnell used the platform that is his late night talk show on MSNBC to taunt and threaten the oldest son of a presidential hopeful.

Seemingly as serious as a heart attack, the nearly 57 year-old O'Donnell challenged the 42 year-old to a fist fight "any time, any where". [ video and transcript below ]

May Lawrence get punched in the face so that he won’t want to show his ugly mug on camera for a long time. He is the king of jerks on that worthless network.

He plays Boston tough guy. But in real life he turned 18 in 1969, went to an elite catholic boys school, then to
Harvard. Somehow never found time to serve. (His big criticism of Romney)

O'Donnell is not serious.

If Romney were to accept the "challenge" OD would quickly find an excuse why the fight could not happen.

O'Donnell is basically a coward...he knows that Romney will not participate in either the rhetoric of the challenge or the physical activity of the challenge. It is the same mindset that allows O'Donnell to denigrate Christians but not muslims. He knows that nothing is going to happen to him via Christians, but there is a chance that some crazy muslim will slit his throat and make a video of it.

If I was in Tagg Romney’s shoes, I’d tell O’Donnell that if he’s serious to call up Dana White and set it up. I’d love to see O’Donnell get an old fashion Irish ass kicking.

The funniest part is that Larry practiced this routine; his camera operator (or director) had to know to back up and then to zoom in. This is actually pretty funny when you consider the new low Larry set, even by PMSNBC standards.

"Tagg Romney is a racist. How do I know?"

"I have extra-sensory ex-ray cams implanted in my gonads."

"I can find racism no matter how deep-seated.
The x-ray cam scans a brain and I get a signal.
My penis starts twitching and points to the racist."

"When I hear white guys like Tagg say 'PGA tour'
I start twitching b/c I know that's Repub code for
'deep-rooted white insecurities about black male sexuality.' ”

This must be one those two-name people. HER real name is Rosie and is a lesbian has-been.

I wish this POS would make me the same offer....I'm several years older, but I've probably been in more bar fights, from Hong Kong to San Diego to Malta to Sasabo and beyond, than this turd has had in his Boston schoolyard yelling bouts with the other girls. Though in the long run, I probably lost at least half of them, the other guys usually looked as bad as me when it was over. I even met a few 'nice' MP's, SP's and Carabinieri along the way. (But, never one of 'Franco's Finest' in Spain, the Civil Guardia. The only 2 words they understood or accepted were "YES" and "SIR".

i think Tagg would rearrange a few of Mr. Smirks features......

Idea to reduce national debt:

Pay per View event:

Tagg vs O’Donnell

Ryan vs Biden

Mitt vs Obie

Nice try Larry.

Tagg gets justifiably po'd, and (like a decent human being) publicly admits it.

So you issue a 'challenge' to a younger, stronger man in order to lure him into making HIM look like the bad guy for beating the snot out of an older, smaller man just so YOU can play the victim.

'Transparency', indeed!

Tagg looks spooky in that pic. Not necessarily tough spooky, more like Satanic ritual spooky. As for O’Donnell, I’m inking him in for an A1 meltdown/kook out on election night. I’m a kook out connoisseur and O’Donnell has a Swift Boat classic in his resume. You have a lot to live up to Larry, don’t disappoint me on Nov 6.

About 2000 people total watch Lawrence O’Donnell’s show. 1000 are stoned and won’t remember what he said. 100 are retarded although there is overlap. The 900 others are welfare bums.
