    Based on his interview with GOP supernova Herman Cain, a cynical person might think that MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell is trying to push the upstart candidate over the finish line for the Republican presidential nomination.

    If being attacked by a liberal is throwing gasoline on a fire to the conservative base, O’Donnell just threw liquid oxygen on that gasoline.

    Let me start by saying this: I like Lawrence O’Donnell, and not just for his contribution to the ultimate liberal television show, The West Wing.

    O’Donnell is part of a new breed of liberal commentator who doesn’t talk himself into a corner, and viewers into a coma.

    He takes strong positions, and expresses them with aggression and clarity.

    I also don’t like Herman Cain, for a variety of good reasons, some of which O’Donnell touched on in his interview.

    His victory in the GOP primary race would be great for America, as it would keep a the Republican party, hell-bent on fundamentally crippling the government’s ability to govern, out of the White House for at least four more years.

    So please, we’re begging you tight assed ReUglican’s, split your lame votes between Cain, Christie, Romney, Perry, Bachmann and Cain…or all vote for one…no matter Obama is the clear winner again!

    Long live Barack Hussein Obama..the finest President since James Earl “Jimmy” Carter, Jr.

    Interesting, those with ridicule go by nom de gurre’s like “Hitman” or “DJ” where as those of us who aren’t afraid to voice our opinions directly, out loud and in public comment utilizing our own names…bravo Scott and Zoe…oh and “DJ” I don’t believe Scott siad he was a “war hero” he simply said veteran…where did you serve may I ask?

    1. DJ

      Lawrence O’Donnell is still an ass-sucking dirt-bag and a coward for attacking Cain like that. Oh yes, what branch of the service did O’Donnell serve in again? Fact is he hasn’t done squat with his life, unless you call drinking the Harvard kool-aid and writing for the the Harvard Lampoon an accomplishment. Just another big-mouth Liberal propagandist poser.

    As an attorney, a US war veteran and a pacifist I agree with the earlier comment, get a life “Rich” you two faced redneck…when it suits you…sure ridicule is fine…when it doesn’t….nope..just us plain folk…shootin’ our guns…

    You, Palin, Bachmann,Walker and Christie deserve each other….

    R.I.C.H. = Republican Idiot Causes Hemorrhoids

    R.I.C.H. = Repugnant Imbecile (who) Constantly Hacks

      Scott- Wow you are amazing, a lawyer, a war hero a pacifist and a liberal Obama-licking racist troll all rolled up in one. Congrats you fake dysfunctional liar.

    Get a life “Rich”…. you rarely pull the “military” card…yet when it suits you (as on May 27, 2011) you’ll be happy to pull the “cancer” card, or the “accent” card on Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz…I’m proud of being an American…I’m proud of Lawrence O’Donnell…and I don’t own a gun or a fishin’ pole…duh..Nor am I dumb ass redneck…as you clearly are!

    I know it is not presidential to return fire from somoeone like O’Donnell but if you look the same question could have been asked to lawrence, Why didn’t he dropout of Harvard to go to Vietnam, He was there until 1975 when he graduated but like all northeast liberals they are to good for this. I hope they keep this guy on forever he is the gift that keeps giving. America will have to make the choice soon his views of America or Mr. Cain. I know where I stand.

    I’m sharing this as vet who volunteered, earned accelerated promotions, the “good behavior” decoration and honorable discharge, blah, blah, blah.

    I agree: I think that was a poor choice of words on O’donnell’s part. I think Lawrence’s personal expectation concerning young people who are not drafted, during a draft, to volunteer in order to “prove” something about themselves… is absurd in general. Being publicly and specifically critical of Cain’s choice in that is more absurd. But we know too that’s how these entertainment channels pretending to be news are in there very nature. I think of Fox News as I do the National Enquirer at the grocery check out… it sure looks and feels like a newspaper but at least “most” of us understand it’s substance is entertainment vs. news. It’s a biased sensationalism some do have an appetite for. Those “newspapers” would not be at the checkout if not.

    You shared in your article above of Cain’s description of himself historically as it related his choices:

    1.) “Cain said he sat in the back of the bus, so he wouldn’t get in trouble.”

    and in your article’s praise of present-day Cain, you summarized him in this way:

    2.) “…Cain is not wired to be a ‘trouble maker’.”

    That’s worth addressing too. I’m not clear why for you it was “awkward” or not okay for O’donnell to inquire and address any perspective a presidential candidate shared on the topic of civil rights, a common public policy issue. In Cain’s particular situation, Cain’s book raises the topic of his own civil rights demonstration non-participation. Cain wrote that he did not participate in the Civil Rights movement himself…this despite Cain being in college 1963-1967 at the height of the college protests staged by African-Americans. Odonnell’s question was not merely appropriate but irresponsible-crazy “not to ask.” I think Cain did a poor job as answering it. Seems that Cain’s response in the interview, that he “was in high school at the time” did not anticipate that O’Donnell would be equipped with Cain’s college years registration information. After that slip, Cain quickly set up what appeared to be a “hypothetical situation” wherein someone family might have been sick, needed care, etc. and he needed to stay out of trouble. A O’Donnel then pointed out, Cain’s book did not go into any such hypothetical situations… it basically said he did not participate and sat in the back of the bus because he wanted to stay out of trouble.

    Not sure if you can see where I am leading this. I want a President “willing to get into trouble” to protect the individual rights of American people. From O’donnell’s interview…I know I need to watch this guy more closely on individual rights. I thought Ron Paul was about individual rights but after paying closer attention… his response on questions of individual rights always somehow land in “states rights.” (?) I think the guy is more anti-federalist than he is pro individual rights.

    I also believe “avoiding” discussing the topic of race and racism, at least until racism no longer exists in this society, makes no sense. That’s why I’ve respectfully replied as I have here.

      Anon,
      It seems that your voicing a paradox for Cain pursued an individual path to his success. He did not follow the path of typical blacks that label him as Uncle Tom’s. Meanwhile, he has taken a different path than Barrack Obama who we do not know where he was during this time.

      Throughout most of your posts on this site, you advocate everything for the collective to gather for no reason and this is the first time you have advocated for individual rights. Herman Cain took a individual path unlike the masses (i.e. Collective). It seems that you advocate that someone must do as the collective to protect individual rights.

        Brian,

        To your comment surrounding the whereabouts of Obama in 1963, he was 2 yrs old with his mother who was attending the University of Hawaii. For the sake of staying on point for this exchange let’s assume everybody is telling truth in their autobiographies (?)

        Presidential enforcement of the Civil Rights Acts (rights to individuals) is a larger public policy issue of concern to the entire Collective. I want to understand the positions of individual candidates on social issues like racial equality. I did not test or celebrate Cain’s right or his wisdom to make the choices he did in playing a “non-role” in civil rights protests. I can pass no judgement on that. I do however want to understand “why” he would make the “counter-intuitive” choice he did, given who he is. He choose explaining is lack of support for civil rights protests as “not wanting to get into trouble.” He had opportunity to offer any explanation. That explanation shines some light onto the man’s motivations as it relates to defending his rights as well as the rights of “other individuals” (in the Collective.) Hope that helps.

        1. Brian

          As your means to an end is destruction and chaos so for you to not understand Herman Cains choice of direction…I can understand why you would not understand.

          As some would like to solve this through reform…yours is destruction.

    I have one question for the 24/7 Obama-ass-sucking Lawrence O’Donnell: What part of the branch did Barack Obama volunteer for again? What unit in Iraq or Afghanistan did Obama serve in again? What part of the private sector was Obama actually a success in, or even so much as worked for a living in his entire life? How disgustingly pathetic it is for this clown to bash Herman Cain this way. Of course it is MSNBC who’s ratings lately are almost as low as Oprah’s Network’s collossal failure.

    Pardon the somewhat stiff analogy here, but just like AiPolitics, this B/S infuriates me to now end.
