MSNBC’s MSDNC’s blowhard Lawrence ‘Larry’ O’Donnell on last night’s The Last Word, had a segment where he spent considerable time berating Ann Romney and called out Mitt Romney and his 5 boys for not serving in the military. I posted about Larry’s fake outrage over Ann Romney’s clothing before.
About Larry’s comments over the ‘Romney men’ dodging serving in the military. They were pretty strange considering that Larry dodged the draft himself (see this link too). I guess Larry was too busy being the bully on the Harvard campus to bother serving?
Larry also spent the last part of the segment daring Tagg Romney to take a swing at him. This is in reference for comments Tagg Romney made about wanting to ‘take a swing’ at President Obama during the debate process. The comment was meant as a joke but, Larry apparently doesn’t have a sense of humor.
OK, Taggart, let’s have a little talk, just you and me, you. When I hear you talk about taking a swing and taking punches, why do I get the feeling that you have never actually taken a punch or thrown a punch? I didn’t have that luxury in the part of Boston that I grew up in. But in your rich suburban Boston life, with your father filling $ 100 million trust fund for you, I don’t know. I just get the feeling that things were kind of different for you.
Now, I know you’ve got a lot — a lot to be pissed off at these days, starting with the name Taggart, which you have every right to be wicked pissed off at for every day of the 42 years of your life. So let me try to help you deal with all this aggression you are feeling right now. You are mad at President Obama for calling your father a liar?
Let’s get something straight. He didn’t call your father a liar. I did. The president just said that what your father said isn’t true. I have been saying all year that your father is a liar. I’ve repeatedly said that your father lies, and is trying to lie his way into the White House.
So you want to take a swing at someone for calling your old man a liar? Take a swing at me. Come on. Come on. And don’t worry, there won’t be any Secret Service involved. Just us. And I’ll make it easy for you. I’ll come to you anytime, anywhere.
Go ahead, Taggart, take your best shot.
