I’m not sure if I’ve ever heard a more offensive interview on MSNBC than the one I just heard from Lawrence O’Donnell with Herman Cain. In one interview O’Donnell managed to accuse Herman Cain of not only sitting on the sidelines during the civil rights movement, but also of dodging the Vietnam war. His contempt for a black Republican has never been more clear.

At one point in the interview, O’Donnell asked Cain where America would be right now if Rosa Parks took his dad’s advice to stay out of trouble and just sit in the back of the bus. Seriously. It was like he was trying to prove that Cain hadn’t earned his black skin or something. It was terribly offensive and I hope Cain never steps foot again in the studios of MSNBC.

I will say that Cain proved he could hold his own and not be rattled by the offensive assumptions of these whackos on MSNBC. He hit back in the interview several times but always kept his cool. He could have hit back more in my opinion but overall I think he did great.

It’s a long interview but it covers four main topics: Brainwashing, Civil Rights Movement, War dodging, and the 9-9-9 plan. Here’s the full interview:

    I think Herman Cain should keep going on MSNBC, he’s a great advocate for the conservative philosophy and he might win over people who would otherwise never hear him on Fox News or conservative websites. That said, I was really mad at all the ridiculous things O’Donnell tried to smear him with, what an awful person.

      I totally agree Kimberly. I watched this and by the end I wanted to see him crack heads with ‘em all over there at the liberal thinktank. I would love to see him destroy Maddow and Mathiews the way he dispatched old Larry. Can you imagine the Herminator against Mika or the vapid Contessa Brewer?

  • Steven

    I know he might not be the nominee, but as long as he is in the arena willing to put it all on the line, I’ll be raising some Cain! He represents best of the Tea Party ethos in the current field. With Palin out, it falls to him. We should support him to keep the Tea Party Movement impact front and center in the political debate in America. It is what this nation needs.

      The only thing that will keep Cain out of the White House is if he has some hidden failure in his background (like Jack Ryan’s sealed divorce records) or if he has a melt-down (after watching this MSNBC interview, I feel that is unlikely). Have you seen the latest Zogby poll?

      Herman Cain will become the GOP nominee and take office as President in January of 2013.

      This is the type of citizen we need to be our President.

    It was disgusting, but like a heard Glenn Beck say the other day, what they accuse you of its what they really are. I applaud Mr. Cain and I think this will strengthen him because there is more to come. They did not speak to anything really relevant until the end, but since the left has nothing but to make-up stories that is no surprise. At the end he said he would return to talk to him, that shows backbone. There’s nothing to fear when you have truth & great ideas on you side, but I tell you that LO has a dark soul to insult a man and his father that way.

    Why the fudge would he answer that 80%+ of the people are brainwashed….sh** man- Jaynie was right about that stupid habit to always answer yes to anything….it’s like he doesn’t process the question, just gives the answer he thinks he needs to give.

            yep— it will be a short clip that only cuts out the question “Do you think 81% of Americans are brainwashed” and Cain’s answer. I could see it being used rampantly…..however, this story seems to have blown up so maybe the entirety of the interview will overshadow that snippet.

            • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1497076194 Travis Pierson

              I hope you’re right. Cain handled himself with far more dignity than one would reasonbly expect and O’Donnell looked like the condescending elitist and raving loon we’ve come to know and loathe.

        The reason Buses were segregated was because the Government forced them to even though they were privately run buses.

        • Oback Arama

          The Democrats passed the laws that segregated the buses. The Democrat governors and mayors and other executives signed and enforced the laws that the Democrats passed to segregate the buses. The Democrats passed the laws that enforced segregated water fountains. The Democrats won the presidency and control of the Congress with the block vote of the segregationist Democrat south and were happy to have that control and have never renounced the way they achieved that control.

              I’ve read two different accounts of that history, and the one that supports your claim has some flat out lies in terms of the support for the civil rights movement in regards to party lines (and also some assumptions that have no support- while it is supported that the intent was to leave the racism to the Democrats and to deal on the bigger national issues as the strategy). I looked up actual newspaper articles with only commentary with no figures. When I looked up the figures, they contradicted what the newspaper insinuated (although they never cited numbers- I also checked figures on more than 2 sources that I had to hunt down and it’s funny that the newspaper articles omit information runs against the idea they’re pushing).

              Basically, I think you’re repeating BS by a biased source.

              I am curious, though, about how many Dems switched sides since you claim that most did.

              By that logic Al Gore Sr. would have “become” a Republican. Do you think that is true? Robert Byrd would have switched parties and “become” a Republican. But he didn’t. As is shown in this interview it is the Democrats who have fostered most of the racism. The reason the South switched from D to R was the people of the south decided to no longer vote for such obviously wrong racist policies nor the politicians who supported them.

Also, FDR dissed Jesse Owens after he won 4 gold medals in the 1936 Oympics by never inviting him to the White House. Owens and Joe Louis, who was also ignored by FDR, were both Republicans.

      You can be sure that Rosa Parks went to the back of bus hundreds of times before she finally got to the point where she “just couldn’t take it any more”. If she wasn’t the total exception to the rule she would not be famous. Most all or even all other black people went to the back of the bus for years until Rosa Parks “had enough”. I am sure that almost all black parents told their children to go to the back of the bus and not make trouble as loved them and didn’t want them ending up getting lynched.

He shouldn’t have accepted the premise and turned it into a question of spending instead of taxes.

    Let’s play switch the question and see how well this would be taken by the leftists.

    Question to dear leader: Last week, a movie came out about the assassination of George. W. Bush. Do you agree that freedom of speech is still a Constitutional right? Would you disassociate yourself if a friend of yours called a large majority of the people SOB’s? Would you fire your VP if he called a large majority of the American people barbarians?

    Question to Robert “Sheets” Byrd: We watched thousands of college kids marching for equal rights for blacks back in the 60’s. What would America be like for blacks back before the civil rights movement if the democrat party was not into lynching, hiding behind white sheets and beating blacks with rubber hoses?

    Question to dear leader: Are you grateful for anything in this Nation? Are you grateful that this country has been the greatest and most free country that millions have come here for a better life? What are you grateful for about this country? Is there anything that you would thank God for, for this country?

    Question to Bill Clinton: Can you tell us how you avoided serving in Vietnam? Can you explain yourself, for not serving in the military during the draft, and why you should be allowed to be commander in chief because you were so good at avoiding the draft? I’m offended on behalf of all vetrans who joined and served in Vietnam Mr. Clinton… I am offended for them who served while you were off doing your little rhodes scholar thingy. What prevented YOU from joining and what, by you taking that choice of going off to school instead of joining, makes you think you have the right to be commander in chief?

    Mr. Cain- you’ve got guts sir, and a lot more grace than I do, as I was yelling at this pathetic little man as he was asking you such offensive questions which he nor anyone else in the lamestream would have ever dared ask any of their messiahs. Good for you sir, for keeping your cool. Excellent answers.

    Herman Cain reminds me of Booker T Washington. He was not a fire breathing militant civil right activist. Nevertheless he became the most important black man of his time. Almost 100 years ago he was the first black man to actually have dinner with the president in the White House. Later on people such as W.E.B Dubois basically threw Washington to the curb and started a militant form of Civil Right activism that included Communism and Black Supremacy. After Stalin died Dubois wrote a sickening Eulogy to him extolling his many virtues. To this day Dubois is a progressive hero while Booker T Washington is looked upon as a an Uncle Tom. Had the black civil right activists carried on his work instead of turning to socialism I have no doubt that there would have been a Civil Right Bill far Earlier than 1964. (the 1957 on was blocked by LBJ when he was majority leader of the Senate) Every american should read Booker T. Washingtons book “Up from Slavery” Herman is filling the place left absent after Washington’s death. Lawren O’ Donnel on the other hand is a piece of crap in the mold of W.E.B Dubois.

      I have respect for folks such as Rosa Parks, and I may be putting myself on a limb here- but… There are those folks who march for rights, but then there are those (like your excellent example of Booker T Washington) who work quietly and who are actually having those same rights as others march for.

      But, W.E.B. Dubois was a great man. Washington and Dubois lived in different times and had different struggles to fight. Washington lead during the civil war period which lead the way for W.E.B. Dubois to really start making the intellectual argument for civil rights.

      Read up on the man (Google is your friend) truly one of the greatest this nation ever produced.

        Dubois saw the fraud of political correctness from the beginning- He fought against it because he knew that eventually it would enslave his people- He was right.

        I think you are confusing Booker T. Washington and Frederick Douglass. Washington and DuBois were contemporaries. Douglass’ freedom was purchased before the War, and he was quite the self-made man.

          No. They were not. Booker T was more than 10 years older and lived 40 years less.

          Booker T died in the 1910s and WEB in the 1960s…totally different times.

          Booker T and WEB had the same goals, just slightly different strategies that reflected the times they lived in (ex: Booker T. was adament about education….WEB was religious about it).

      At least W.E.B. DuBois was a genuine intellectual. O’Donnell is just a White House spokes-tool, with the mediocrity of a wannabe who can’t make a decent living at anything genuine. As this nonsense keeps up, more and more people – even those who fancy themselves revolutionaries – will get tired and say, yanno, I just want a good job and a decent country to live in. I don’t want to bequeath trash, indecency and increasing corruption to those I love, to be remembered by no one with any substance whatsoever. I want the world of the Cains – people who achieved despite an imperfect world, who lived, loved and made things better for their families and their communities.

      • Anonymous

        Cain is a Social Conservative but he is not a Constitutional Conservative. There is a huge difference between the two.

        Why Cain is not convincing as a Conservative, Consitutionally speaking:

        1) His support for continuing The FED
        2) His stance that the 2nd Amendment can be limited by the states. Any Constitutional Conservative understands that states have no more right than the Federal government to infringe upon Constitutionally affirmed rights.
        3) His support for continued and possibly expanded military involvement in the Middle East while the USA is not under imminent attack.

        It is not enough to like a candidate because they lean towards your position on social or religious issues.In fact, this type of voting has brought our country to the brink of destruction it faces today (economically and ideologically).

        It is important to vote for the candidate who best upholds the US Constitution each and every time.

  • Anonymous

    Meant to post this after this assanine assault by Mr. Odonnell. WTG Herman for not stooping to the below the belt level of the interviewer!

    A few thoughts on Cain:

    – I like the fact that if he does not know something or has misstated something, he is not afraid to admit that he was wrong and even educates himself to the point that he is sure to give a correct and clear answer the next time he is asked.

    – “Thee United States of America is friends with Israel, and those against Israel are against the United States” – Herman Cain.

    – Mr. Cain has taken three sub par (if not failing) corporations and turned them into massive successes. He is a problem solver and obviously knows how to surround himself with the right people. This just about covers our fiscal dilemma as well as choosing a powerhouse of a cabinet to help him with foreign policy, the energy crisis, and any other issue one wants to bring up.

    – Rush has called him the most consistent conservative in the race.

    – Herman Cain has not been a robotic part in the political machine we call the RNC. I don’t see him choosing anyone for his cabinet as a political favor to anyone; rather, I believe he will choose the person who will best serve the people and the Constitution of the United States of America.

    – Lastly, can you imagine a Cain/Rubio GOP ticket? What would the liberal mediaites have to say about us “racist tea baggers” then? Who really cares what they think… what an unstoppable Cain Train that would be!!!

      I agree with all of your points, especially the first one…I just said the very same thing to my husband this morning. He’s going to make mistakes – don’t we all? – and it is SO refreshing to hear someone running for office (I can’t even call him a politician, and that’s a compliment) actually say, “I was wrong/I was mistaken/I’ve changed my views/I wasn’t fully informed but I am now.” These guys/gals are always so busy claiming they were misquoted or taken out of context or tricked or misunderstood, yada yada….I absolutely love the fact that he’s willing to admit that he’s just like the rest of us – not perfect, sometimes wrong, sometimes not fully versed on a subject, willing to learn and be flexible when it’s called for. My favorite quote from him came from the last debate: “America has got to learn to take a joke.” God bless him, that’s exactly what we need in the White House: someone super smart, super humble, who doesn’t think the sun sets on his behind every night and who can keep things in perspective. Our current leader is 0-4 on those counts.

        I wish he would admit his mistake on the Perry issue. Cain jumped on the bandwagon without knowing the facts and has not retracted a word.
        Secondly, he is saying he could not support Perry? Romney is FAR worse! At least O’Donnell pointed out some of Romney’s skeletons. I hope Cain was listening and taking notes. He needs to quit piling on Perry and go after Romney.

      Rubio…

      The “natural born citizen” issue is still relevant with Rubio, whose parents were “naturalized” USA citizens.

      To put it simply, both parents must be born in USA for the child to be a “natural born” citizen.

      For those who don’t know the U.S. Constitution, or mayby they just do not care, Rubio can never be POTUS or V-POTUS.

      That’s just the way it is.

      Art

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lee-Brown/100000507738274 Lee Brown

        Read your Constitution. Article 14 specifically defines a natural citizen as:

        Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in the gaps left by the Constitution. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are “citizens of the United States at birth:”

        * Anyone born inside the United States * He was born in Miami.

        * Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person’s status as a citizen of the tribe
        * Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
        * Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
        * Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
        * Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
        * Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
        * A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.

        * There is an exception in the law — the person must be “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States. This would exempt the child of a diplomat, for example, from this provision.

        • Anonymous

          Art was referring to the requirements to be POTUS or V-POTUS not the requirements for citizenship. Different thing entirely.

          Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution sets forth the eligibility requirements for serving as president of the United States:

          No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

          The Twelfth Amendment states that, “No person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.”

          The Original Intent of the founders was that to be a “natural born citizen” one must be born of parents who were born in the USA. These requirements do not pertain to any other government office.

          • KenInMontana

            Actually the term “natural born citizen” is not defined in the US Constitution, the is very strong evidence that the founders relied on the works of Vattel for the definition of this term, a definition widely accepted at the time the US Constitution was written. The Supreme Court also relied on Vattel’s definition of the term, Justice Joseph Story among them,
            http://www.thepostemail.com/2009/10/18/4-supreme-court-cases-define-natural-born-citizen/

            Here is a bit more on this as well,
            http://itooktheredpill.wordpress.com/2010/04/19/george-washington-john-jay-and-vattels-definition-of-natural-born-citizen/

            Lee Brown is correct in citing Title 8 law as citizenship is very relevant to the topic, however he is incorrect in asserting that the 14th Amendment defines the term “natural born citizen” as it does not,

            14th Amendment, Section 1.
            All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

              I remember we had a discussion in March on this subject. Here’s is part of my comment on that thread 3/19/11:

              An excerpt from an article on this subject can be found at:

              http://federalistblog.us/2008/
              Defining Natural-Born Citizen
              By P.A. Madison on November 18, 2008

              Conclusion
              Extending citizenship to non-citizens through birth based solely upon locality is nothing more than mere municipal law that has no extra-territorial effect as proven from the English practice of it. On the other hand, citizenship by descent through the father is natural law and is recognized by all nations (what nation doesn’t recognize citizenship of children born to their own citizens?). Thus, a natural-born citizen is one whose citizenship is recognized by law of nations rather than mere local recognition.

        • KenInMontana

          Sorry, but no, the 14th Amendment does not define “natural born citizen”, and Title 8, while used to fill in the gaps is not the 14th amendment nor is it in the text of the US Constitution.

      • Liberal1951

        You are wrong. Just remember Obama’s Kenyan-born father. Your parents don’t have to be born in the USA — you have to be born in the USA. Rubio can be VP or President if we vote him in.

      • http://www.bcarr.com Brendon Carr

        Art, you’re mistaken on this. A “natural-born” citizen is simply a person who is entitled to the citizenship of the United States as at the time of his birth. And according to our great Constitution, anyone — regardless of parentage — born on the soil of the United States is entitled to the citizenship of the United States as at the time of his birth. Some Americans born overseas are also “natural born” citizens in accordance with the Immigration and Nationality Act. So long as a person is not naturalized himself, he is natural-born.

        I’ve studied the issue pretty closely, as my own kids were born here in Seoul.

        • KenInMontana

          If you are an Attorney, then you must have skipped your Constitutional law classes. The term “natural born citizen” is not defined anywhere within the text of the US Constitution nor any of its amendments.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LMZHYXZ4VLZWUQ6GBILM3KMSPY not a patsy

        Both parents do not have to be born in the USA but both must have been citizens of the USA at the time of your birth.

        • KenInMontana

          Check Title 8, Section 1401 of US law, only one parent is required to be a US citizen.

      • KenInMontana

        Art, I have to respectfully disagree with you on the point of parentage in regards to the requirement to be considered a “natural born citizen”. While the Constitution states a candidate must be “natural born” it does not define it. Title 8 Section 1401 only requires that one parent be a US Citizen, either naturalized or “natural born”, the question with Rubio’s status hinges on when his father became naturalized, if after Rubio’s birth he (Marco) would not be considered “natural” born, if his Father was naturalized prior to Marco’s birth he would actually under our existing laws and SCOTUS precedents be considered natural born. I have seen documentation that supports both positions before and after, so as for myself I am still researching his Father’s status.

    My God, Lawrence O’Donnell is the world’s biggest schmuck.

    Did they EVER ask any of these questions of Obama? Did Obama serve? No — what made HIM qualfied, then, to lead as CIC? And insulting Cain for not taking part in the war …and/or not taking part in Civil Rights …just nauseating. But Cain did hold his own and shot back at that little socialist snake.

    Was it important that 100% of all black Americans at the time of the civil rights protests take part? Did ALL Americans serve in the Vietnam War? Hell NO!!! Especially the rich and the liberals who found ways to skate out .. .at least Cain was doing something to serve the country — unlike Lawrence who was likely backpacking smoking dope up in Canada.

That would have made him 18 years old in 1969 – right at the height of the Vietman War. So are we to assume that our hero Larry used college as a deferment to his own military service?

      Hello. I just want to let you know. I am 15 years old. I became a conservative in 2008, at which point we were discussing the ’08 election. Before that I had no political view (being a 5th grader). When I did become a conservative I realized that public school was the greatest opportunity to teach people what the correct view was. I have since used any and all opportunities to make sure that the conservative point of view is acknowledged as valid and not just “something those people that never helped the country”(public schooling definition of a Republican) came up with. I also hope to be a future lawyer and maybe a politician some day. I hope to model myself after honest ones like Herman Cain seemed to be in this interview. I am white and I don’t think it has any relevance on anything. Playing the race card is the worst tactic to gain political power.

      Sincerely,
      Slade Hogan

    What a bitter and arrogant man. In my experience, most people who are that angry are miserably unhappy in life.

    Two issues cause me pause with O’Donnell’s thought process: First, I question how anyone can think that protesting for the purpose of promoting trouble or being arrested is a worthy cause to which one would aspire. As his father taught Herman Cain, education during those critical years is extremely important. In fact, the importance placed on the seriousness of education is precisely the difference in where Herman Cain is in his life as opposed to those protesters we’ve witnessed over the past few weeks. He is certainly proof that in America, one is never limited to what he can accomplish, that is unless he chooses to limit himself by squandering his opportunities!! Second, what circumstances caused O’Donnell to believe Herman Cain chose to avoid service in Vietnam when, in fact, he did serve in exactly the position his government asked him to serve? Has it become some sort of failure to have not fought on foreign lands? My opinion of his service is that it was far more honorable than the actions of those who chose to talk disparagingly about their own country. At least Cain was examining bullets with his eyes rather than plucking them from his back side!

    Congratulations to Herman Cain on a life of great accomplishment and to a successful and honorable quest toward the office of the presidency. My prayers are with you throughout this journey and through your life. You give Georgians and all Americans great cause to be proud of your efforts and your ethics.

    Cain is a concerned citizen who has, against all odds, become the GOP front runner in an election that will ultimately decide the future direction that this country will take. Cain’s ideas are bold and clear. His optimism and confidence in the American people is inspiring. As this interview demonstrates, Cain is able.

    The reason Lawrence O’Donnell mistakenly believed Herman Cain “served in the Navy” after reading that Herman Cain worked for the Department of the Navy is that O’Donnell has zero familiarity with military service. This is because O’Donnell is a draft dodger himself.

    He was born in 1951 and turned 18 in 1969. O’Donnell was an undergraduate at Harvard from 1969 to 1976 — [b]seven[/b] years! Vietnam was still going pretty good then, wasn’t it?

    Cain says he was informed by the draft board that he was working in a critical field — ballistics analysis for the Navy sounds like that to me — and as such he was ineligible for the draft. O’Donnell asks why Cain didn’t enlist anyway.

    How a guy who tooled around Harvard Square for seven years during the Vietnam War can have the gall to accuse Herman Cain of “avoiding the Vietnam War” working as a civilian mathematical analyst in ballistics (i.e., as a missile and projectile scientist!) is a profound mystery to me.

    Cain more than held his own here, against one of the most obnoxious and offensive shouting heads of the Left. In fact, he pretty much slapped Lawrence O’Donnell around.

    Herman Cain, don’t limit your message to the friendly confines of the Fox News studios! Take it to the Left on their home turf and win.

      I’m sure I needn’t point out that, given their voting behavior for the last 40 years, black Americans have given that appearance… behavior that socialist politicians who can’t get elected on the merits of their ideas FEED off of. If the black community of American voters ever split their vote by half, democrat socialist parasitic hired guns would almost cease to exist because no decent American would vote for them. So yes, I agree with you in your disgust. The key to the correction of this anomaly would be to properly educate black people in general. To do that you have to take the federal government plantation owners out of the public education business.

    Do you know why Herman Cain dominated that interview? It’s because everything he said was exactly how he felt. Everything he said about his past was exactly true. Im glad Herman Cain took on those tough questions, and wouldn’t let that pathetic person infer those lies about him.

    Lawrence- thank you for existing, just so your pathetic plan could backfire on you in this moment.

    I’m 18 years old, and believe that President Herman Cain would make policies that would benefit my future. I could not only find a job when I get out of college, but also stay motivated to work hard. I could believe in success. I saw my first Herman Cain speech when I was 16 years old, and I remember watching it right here on the scoop.

    We are witnessing a dramatic transition in the history of the United States. I am proud to be a part of it. Anytime someone tries to tell you that Herman Cain doesn’t stand a chance, don’t buy it. Don’t let them believe that politics has to be the same old thing.

    I’ve been a big supporter of Mr. Cain for almost a year now. Even I am impressed with how well he handled Mr. O’Donnell. Its obvious that he has learned their tactics and has become very adept in putting them in their place. He doesn’t get into those inane shouting matches. Instead, he responds with facts and from a place of integrity. He doesn’t have to position himself as a non-politician, he is a non-politician.

    What the heck does it matter if you are black or you are white. Cain should rest on his merits the same as anyone else. Anyone that thinks race has anything to do with being a good leader is an idiot. I could care less about Mr. Cain’s race. I care about his statements and his ideas. The man doesn’t impress me as anything but a fancy talker. Every time he gets into uncharted new waters that he hasn’t been prepped for he falls on his face. Anyone that goes on television in an interview and begins a sentence with “I don’t have the facts to back this up” is a fool. If you don’t have the facts then why are you discussing it? Why not tell the truth and say “I just don’t know” Then the man flip flops on the 5th amendment. HE doesn’t know enough to take the oath of office if he did win. WAKE THE HELL UP PEOPLE.

    Herman didn’t take the bait. Lawrence tried every way to Sunday to try and get a rise out of Herman and he failed…all he did was show how much he hates black people and how superior he thinks he is to black people. He tried, unsuccessfully, to put incorrect words in Herman’s mouth only to be verbally spanked like a puppy who couldn’t control his bladder–and by his smug grin, it appears he liked it. If I watched his show this would make me want to cancel my account with my cable provider unless they removed it from my subscription.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2A2T7NPD7W2HUY26AMRVNBWXVI RaymondC

    There are two reasons why I have a lot of contempt for the Left, as represented by Lawrence O’Donnell:

    1) I remember vividly as a young child in Hong Kong the political tumult of the Cultural Revolution in next-door China in 1966 and 1967. That tumult inspired riots and bombing by Communist sympathizers in 1967 in Hong Kong, which resulted in the British military moving in forces to suppress the rioters.

    2) Obama and his allies have totally no clue on just why Europe is financially collapsing–the “cradle to grave” government social services are no longer affordable.

    Is it small wonder why Herman Cain’s message of streamlined, less intrusive government and business-friendly (for everyone) taxation has struck a chord with many voters? We need to design our economy so people can create “nest eggs” for retirement and/or pay for medical services privately, and not wait for a government stipend to do so. And we must change taxation so benefits _everyone_, not just the politically well-connected (the “crony capitalism” that Sarah Palin so clearly warned about).

    On the Vietnam War issue….I would have reached through that camera and slammed O’Donnells face into his desk. Cain was in a position to provide support to the Navy and the Dept of the Navy wanted him there. He made himself availble for the draft and just happened to not be drafted. He didn’t DODGE IT LIKE CLINTON DID!!! WHERE WAS BO DURING THE VIETNAM WAR??!?! How can you say offended on behalf of all the Vietnam Vets who joined. DID YOU O’DONNELL!?!? As a vet I’m offended that you (O’Donnell) have not volunteered for ANY WAR!!!

    Cain should have asked if he was offended by Clintons actions during the Vietnam war or BO’s actions during the Vietnam war. That would have been awesome. At least Cain was working for the Dept of the Navy at the time. What were you doing O’Donnell?!?!?!

    Bravoooo! Every American needs to see this interview. It is going to go down as a classic battle of…

    Evil vs Good

    I liken this interview to a heroic event on a battlefield. Herman Cain saw the enemy, crafty as he was, recognized the situation at hand, but knew his battle buddies needed him to move forward in order to save the platoon from total destruction [American economy]. Unabated by the threatening situation Cain moves forward, dodging every bullet fired, with determination and grit.

    Upon reaching his goal to wipe out the enemy, he has a smile on his face as he stares down the enemies eyes and takes him down with one good swift jab in the face with the butt of his rifle!!! HOOOORAH!!!!!!!!!!!! Nite nite O’Donnell.

    This guy just needs to keep on keeping on and the American people will finally see an man of grit, character, and resolve.

    Herman Cain is a man who can rise every morning and be comfortable with the man he has become. Very well-educated, highly successful in his career in business, cultured and well-read and most importantly faithful and possessive of humility, this man can withstand a shameless, ignorant, racist attempt to assassinate his character in such a manner as this and come to end with a smile and an offer to speak again. You have to admire his moral courage and THICK skin. I’m not sure I could have endured O’Donnell’s filthy, insidious attack without walking out on the interview. But that’s one of the reasons why Cain is running for POTUS and I sit here and talk about it.

    I was supporting Cain early on. I first knew about him more than 10 years ago from what I had read about him and what I had seen on TV. I clearly remember thinking, “I hope this man runs for President one day.” Since ripping up my Republican card and becoming a conservative independent in 1997, I’ve found that it is much easier to concentrate on a man’s character above his party affiliation or his “carefully and tediously assembled” stump speeches written by “handlers”. And when Cain speaks you can’t help but recognize that he says what he really thinks. Unlike career politician types, Cain doesn’t do the “um, er, uh, soooo, but uh, let me just say, to be honest” politician boogie when speaking without a teleprompter. Who does that bring to mind?

    Best man for the job, folks. Send him some money, as did I, and encourage him. These are the kind of Americans we need to lead the nation and make her strong again. BEAT OBAMA WITH A CAIN!! Nothing short of the American way of life is at stake.

      The only good thing about a Republican nominee who happened to be black would be that, in the election, the question of race would be moot.

    Herman Cain may be a great businessman. However, he sucks as a politician aka diplomat. How can a black candidate refuse to participate in black media? The presidency hasn’t seen a candidate outside the system garner such a high output since Perot, but he ignores the prospects of diversifying his base. His voters will transfer to Perry for the most part. The party will never nominate Cain to face off against Obama.

      I couldn’t agree with you more. I bet prior to entering the race, Cain had realistic expectations, probably wanted to get some name recognition, eventually run for governor or something smaller than leader of the free world. But to everyone’s surprise, he’s right in the thick of the race… this just goes to show how weak the GOP field is, which is good news for Obama. Though it is likely Cain won’t take the GOP nomination, could you imagine if he did? Obama vs. Cain in a presdiential election, that would be something.

    As someone with an economics degree from a top school, I find that big business is making a risky bet by hedging the presidency. The president is giving out goodies while the usual suspects are refusing to take a grand offer.

    What happens when Obama gets re-elected next year? The data shows an extremely competitive election because the swing states are extremely disenfranchised from being loyal to either party. I think Obama keeps Nevada, Colorado, and Wisconsin by tight margins. The battle is about Iowa, New Hampshire, Ohio and Virginia.

    The GOP will pick up Indiana, North Carolina, and Florida.

    After watching this interview (usually turn to Bill O’, but Laura Ingraham was on, and I have trouble with her) I grew even more disdain for Mr. Cain.

    At first he tried to justify his lack of participation in the Civil Rights movement because he was in high school. Then, Larry called him out on that, getting Cain to admit he was a freshman in college as the civil rights movement entered it’s pinnacle. As a young Black American, I’m glad Larry questioned him on this, even though it has nothing to do with how Cain would run the presidency. In his book, Cain mentioned how he would sit in the back of the bus because he “didn’t want to start any trouble,” an outright admission of his cowardice in a time of crisis. It’s disheartening to hear that when your people are under attack, you Mr. Cain did not do anything about it. I’m sure in hindsight, Cain regrets not being on the frontlines of the most important battle Black Americans faced. But the effect of this interview is minimal, as I’m sure Blacks would still not vote for Cain regardless of if this interview happened. With Cain’s statement about blaming yourself for your financial woes, that is an opinion that doesn’t sit well with Blacks who have the highest unemployment amongst any racial demographic. This interview though has solidified that Cain will get .0001% of the Black vote (which, I’m sure Cain already knew)

    Black people often reflect on the days when we were slaves. Because of this interview, Cain would undoubtedly be identified amongst the Black community as a “house negro”, one who is content with his inferior status and oblivious to the fact that he is a slave.

    • Dan

      let me get this right…….who today was a slave during the marches?????? or for that fact in the 50’s 60’s….and you have to know slavery was abolished by Lincoln….do you even know it was the demoncraps who reversed most of the laws passed to protect blacks and assure their rights as Americans…Jim Crow was Demoncraps law…….demoncraps are the racist not conservatives

        Yes, you are referring to a time when GOP and Dems were not under the same ideology as they are today. I am not accusing conservatives of being racist, I am just disheartened by Cain’s statement. I think a proper answer, would have went along the lines of him showing regret and stating that he is capable of fighting for the basic rights of human beings.

        • http://escapingmediocrity.wordpress.com Natassia

          Why should he show regret? I would think that millions of blacks would show regret for voting for Obama, but I don’t see that happening. His insane spending, his Obamacare legislation and his racist, anti-American Department of Justice have wreaked so much havoc on our country, the least blacks could do is apologize for helping to put him into office. But no–as usual they monolithically (9 out of 10) approve of his performance.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDTDTTD453P6VZKZJS3NFMFEEA Jus

            He should show regret because when he was needed most Cain wasn’t there. I’m sure you as a patriotic American, if you were living in the 13 British colonies pre American revolution, you would rise to revolt, would you not?

            I agree with you, for too long the Black vote has been automatically democratic. Because of it, we are forgotten by both parties. But at least obama and the democratic party address the issues that affect Blacks…. no health care, unemployment, middle class/lower class issues. So it’s not difficult to see why Obama is supported.

              Jus, All of those issues that affect Black Americans “no health care, unemployment, middle class/lower class issues.” These all are fixed through education. I mean the lack of education is the root cause. The education system in America is stalwart in its unionism and, as it is, cannot be reformed. These Teachers Unions are so powerful by virtue of being joined at the hip with the Liberal Democratic Party. Democrats are not likely to help black people.

            • http://escapingmediocrity.wordpress.com Natassia

              I don’t know if I would revolt. It is so easy to sit here as an armchair revolutionary and claim that I would do this or do that, but I can’t do that. It would all depend on what stage in my life I would have been at, if I would have had children and a husband or not, if I would have been healthy or not, etc. It also depends on how I would have been raised, what values my parents would have instilled, etc.

              Blacks are not forgotten, are you kidding me? Blacks are disproportionately recipients of all the major welfare programs. They are disproportionately responsible for crimes. They are disproportionately responsible for our nation’s millions of abortions. They are disproportionately responsible for house foreclosures, poor school test scores, illegitimacy rates, you name it.

              Forgotten? Ha.

      How can black people ‘reflect on the days when we were slaves’ when no one alive today was a slave? Your ignorant comments show the extent of educational brainwashing by Marxist dogs. Those of us alive during the civil rights era realize that if all persons of color had participated actively in marching and organizing that we would not have had time to get an education and pull ourselves up and become successful citizens of this great country.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDTDTTD453P6VZKZJS3NFMFEEA Jus

        LOL, obviously no former slaves are alive today, however there’s no denying that the effects of slavery are present within the Black community. And according to your logic, if nobody had faught for basic human rights, then every Black person would have been off getting educated? I also disagree with you on us becoming successful citizens of this country. Surely, we are doing better off than we were in the Jim Crow era, but have we really become successful citizens? Most of us are victims of generational poverty, poor education, and unrivaled violence.

    • http://escapingmediocrity.wordpress.com Natassia

      Jus, how about the black folks who are not descendants of slaves or are actually descendants of slaveholders? How about the black people who have white along with black ancestors? No one ever differentiates between the different heritages of black people. Instead, they lump them all together as victims of racism and slavery…and then demand that all black people join the herd mentality and constantly view themselves as perpetual victims of white oppression.

      The groupthink of blacks in America is downright depressing. If they haven’t been brainwashed by liberal media and liberal public schooling and liberal college professors, then there is only one other conclusion: they are stupid.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDTDTTD453P6VZKZJS3NFMFEEA Jus

        Quite the contrary… there is a distinction between Black Americans (i.e. descendants of slaves) and Blacks from foreign lands. Blacks who have not been linked to slavery do considerably better financially than those who are linked to slavery, are less violent and are more optimistic.

        And I take it you meant to say, “If they have been brainwashed by liberal media and liberal public schooling and liberal college professors, then there is only one conclusion: they are stupid.”

        Maybe you are unaware of how brainwashing works, it isn’t something that is overtly obvious as a burning building. Instead it is subtle and works most effective when done psychologically. So maybe it’s a bit harsh to call brainwashed victims stupid, no?

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZEHLAFBIOVDD3M66ANV4IWKJYA The Hollywood Hammer

          Who does the linking to slavery?

        • http://escapingmediocrity.wordpress.com Natassia

          There is no distinction when it comes to application of affirmative action: a black from a wealthy Kenyan family is given the same preference as a black from a poor American family. And they are all encouraged to vote one way: Democrat, because American conservatives and the Republican party have been wrongly smeared as racist for years.

          I suspect that most black slaves originated from certain African areas with higher incidences of violent anti-social behavior. Look at Africa today: certain areas (like Congo) are far more barbaric than other areas (like Kenya.) I suspect genetics plays a part, as well as generational brainwashing–“The reason we are poor is because of white oppression and racism.”

          No, I meant to say “If they have NOT been brainwashed…then they are stupid.”

          In other words, if many years of liberal orthodoxy are not to blame for the monolithic way blacks vote, then most blacks are stupid (ie low IQ).

    • DesertYankee

      You poor, ignorant soul, Jus. How can you swallow so much koolaid you’re turning a bright blue? I don’t understand liberal racists. Their mindset is perplexing and circular… everything centering around the race issue. Instead, Jus, perhaps you should try to associate with the majority of educated black Americans who find whining about racism and not being tall are just a waste of valuable time. People like those are busy working twice as hard as everyone else to persevere and triumph over other people’s ignorance and shame. They also make up the great majority of Black American families nationwide. And the biggest reason this happened is because they figured out that a man need not declare that he is black and proud… his color is self-evident and his confident, obvious character replaced his pride.

    If you’ll notice at the top of MSNBC’s screen it says ‘Lean Forward’. Leaning suggests a state of imbalance.

    Great interview by O’Donnell. And kudos for Cain for escaping the bubble and cocoon that it Faux Media. This was not a softball Faux interview, a la Hannity, where Cain would have been asked leading questions, given the answer desired in the question, no follow-up questions to what the person had just said. O’Donnell also asked him about things previously said from Cain and things he wrote, where Faux only cares about what you said previously as long as its anti-Democratic Party, anti-liberal or anti-President Obama.

    Cain got a fair, hard-hitting interview. Absolutely nothing offensive about it. The only ones finding it offensive are those who are “brain-washed” by the softball interviews and love fests given on Faux and far-right talk radio.

      Lawrence O’Donnell is a proclaimed Communist. Herman Cain is represents the antithesis to O’Donnell’s idealogy, so it is not surprising that he would go after Cain as he did. Obama never got this type of challenge during the 2008 campaign by any media reporter. It is called vetting and Cain is demonstrating he can handle the challenge and showed leadership by tempering his responses to O’Donnell. Had Obama been vetted properly by the media, Hillary would have been our President and more than likely our country would not be in the mess it is in today.

    • http://twitter.com/newmediarules Charles

      Hard-hitting, yes. Fair? Not so much. Getting into a “gotcha” exchange about his participation in the Civil Rights Movement, when the vast majority of people — black, white, etc — didn’t participate in those marches. As someone else commented, Cain DID participate BIG-TIME in that movement, by succeeding on his merits and setting concrete examples of black achievement.

      But it’s okay for a presidential hopeful to get an unfair interview. It won’t be the last; that’s for sure.

  • http://escapingmediocrity.wordpress.com Natassia

    I think people are needlessly harping on the “brainwashing” word. Really, when the media, Hollywood, the public school systems, “higher education,” and most of the government are of a liberal bent, it would not be inaccurate to say most Americans have been brainwashed to feel entitled and victimized, particularly the younger generations and minorities who have been spoon-fed the idea that disparities between certain minorities and whites is always due to white racism.

    • http://twitter.com/newmediarules Charles

      Agreed. How many times have I heard the Nation of Islam accuse the vast majority of African-Americans of being brainwashed? Maybe a couple hundred times? Of course, the term “brianwashed” sounds inherently insulting. Perhaps Cain should consider another term. But we all know what he meant.

      • http://escapingmediocrity.wordpress.com Natassia

        I am glad he’s not sugarcoating anything. He is saying what he thinks in strong terms. If you ask me, that shows far more respect than the liberal white guilt pontification and condescension so common nowadays.

    A typical example of a type of “hard-hitting” questions asked of Barack Obama by NBC’s Brian Williams on NBC News
    updated 9/17/2007 6:58:03 PM ET

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: What was your message at Wall Street today?

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: Is Gordon Gecko dead or alive, Michael Douglas’ famous character in Wall Street who said “Greed is good”

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: I asked this at the last democratic debate. Are– are hedge funds good or bad for America? Is it right for these hedge funds making billions and billions of dollars along with the hedge fund managers?

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: Who or what do you think is to blame for this current mortgage and credit crisis? Who do we see about that?

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: Let’s talk about the campaign which I understand you’ve been spending some of your free time doing. To– what’s the surprise? What is it, seven months into it?

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: Yeah.

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: Well, about this front load in calendar, how– how great a concern do you have that just at the time when a lot of Americans will be dialing in, a lot of states will have already made the decisions leading up to who the nominees of the party are.

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: How do you think it is that so many polls show Senator Clinton as the agent of change?

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: What does it say about your effort to– to shine a bright light on Sen– Senator Clinton? Things like her war vote?

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: The MoveOn ad, General Betray-Us? Do you think it’s counter productive?

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: The fact that it was Senator Warner who in the parlance of Washington politics drew blood at that hearing is one of the points made by an op-ed piece–the piece in sum says that Democrats have no game on this. That the Republicans continue to set the agenda. That must be a source of enormous frustration to you and your party.

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: To politics, the contributions by this Mr. Hsu. Is this a case of, as your campaign look at it, but for the grace of God go I? Or do you think certain campaigns attract certain contributors?

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: How do you and Senator Clinton get along?

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: You have a day job in the US Senate. You’re traveling all over the country. It’s one of the most grueling experiences any adult can undertake. You wake up every morning and in a lot of polls, you’re second. You miss your wife. You miss your two daughters. What’s the frustration level? Compared to where you might have thought it would– would be right now?

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: Yeah. The first time I met you, I couldn’t help but hear what you were saying through the prism of a fellow married father of two.

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: Everyone has their own defense mechanism. But it– it hurts to miss the little events of life.

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: And no regrets today? When you got in it, you thought that by now, on a beautiful day in New York in September, you might be a little further down the line.

    BRIAN WILLIAMS: And final question. We– we went through the business of embracing the enemies. The dust off with Senator Clinton. I don’t imagine that will be the last. Do you feel calluses on your hands that you didn’t have when you got into this race?

    I just want to clear up a lie O’Donnell told about John Kerry’s military service.

    John Kerry did not “join” the Navy to do his duty. Kerry did exactly what George W. Bush would do 2 years later.

    John Kerry came from a wealthy, politically connected family. Like GWB, he used his families political connections to secure an officer assignment in a reserve unit. In 1966 John Kerry signed up for a six year tour as an officer in the Navy Reserves.

    George W. Bush did the same thing in 1968 when he used his families connections to get a spot as an officer in the Texas Air National Guard.

    The only real difference between the two men is that Kerry had a four month stint in Vietnam while George W. Bush served longer in uniform.

    Larry “The Unstable Guy” O’Donnell was born November 7, 1951.

    Turning eighteen and becoming eligible for service in Vietnam in 1969. He mysteriously failed to rush down to the recruiting office and enlist.

    Despite being given a draft lottery number of 72 in 1970, and the military taking numbers up to 125 that year, O’Donnell evaded the draft through a college deferment.

    As a black Conservative, and a retired U.S. Marine (20 years and 1 week of active duty service to this great country), I was totally angered by the disrespect shown by Mr. O’Donnell. A host of hostile accusatory questioning, rude comments, totally out of line/off subject questions, and blatant attempt at smearing an accomplished, successful, proud American was on glaring display last night. Every American, Liberal, Conservative, Independent, etc, should be outraged by what was on display last night. It almost brought me to tears, that’s how angry I was. Where was all this during all of the scandalous information dug up when Obama was running? I don’t recall any reporter EVER asking questions so rude and hostile toward “The One”. It’s very sad, but I will be one proud American to vote for Mr. Cain, and if/when he is elected President, he will be the first TRULY “black” President in my eyes, a LEGITIMATE one for a change, and a “qualified” one this time.

    Truthfully, Cain didn’t wow me on this interview. He was confronted with force, and only offered passivity.

    When pressed on what his father had told him to do, I, personally, would’ve asked him if he’d questioned Obama in reference to his hatred of the United States, Capitalism and individual freedom, considering he was a committed communist. If Doogie Houser dared to get offended by my ‘smearing’ a dead man, then I’d tell him that he’d just got through doing the same thing to my father, to my face.

    When pressed about my ‘failure’ to actually join the Navy, or any other branch of service, during the Vietnam War, I’d point out the fact that he was military age, himself, before the close of the conflict, and ask him what branch he was a part of. No, when others were giving their lives in military service, either in the military departments, or in civilian service to the DOD, he was looking at becoming a gofer for politicians. I’d also ask him if he’d neglected to ask Obama if he was fit to be Commander in Chief, considering Obama flat-out said he turned down a chance to serve his country, seeing as to how Vietnam was over, and there was no need for him to join.

    When pressed about my ‘inactivity’ during the Civil Rights marches, I’d ask him why he wasn’t out marching. You don’t have to be black to go out and demand Constitutional equality for blacks; plenty of whites did it, so why didn’t he? Why didn’t his sainted father? I’d ask if he’d questioned Obama on why he chose to smoke dope and have gay sex, as opposed to fighting against the leftist democrat power structure, held by people like Al Gore Senior, who hated blacks and insisted they still be treated like second class citizens.

    The left makes its way through the world through aggressive stupidity. They attack and make the attack look like the fault of the Conservative. We will continue to suffer these attacks, until somebody finally stands up and talks to them, like they talk to us. Had Cain said the things I would’ve, Doogie would’ve been left incoherent, stammering and probably raging, like the last time he was on Morning Schmoe, and showed his true nature as an out-of-control, incoherent, vicious leftist. Cain isn’t too quick on the draw, and he’s far too soft and passive. Until you punch a bully in the face, and possibly stab that bully in the guy a couple of times, you will continue to get sand kicked in your face, because, to the bully, all you will be, until you prove otherwise, that you’re something OTHER than a punk. Intellectually, its way past time for a true Conservative to choke a bitch, but its become obvious that this crop of GOP candidates is no stronger, than any other; possibly even weaker. What a disappointment.

    People like to talk crap about “verbal Judo”, not realizing that Judo can be a somewhat brutal martial art, based of Ju-Jitsu. This wasn’t the time for that. This was the time for verbal Wing Chun Kung Fu, and Herman Cain blew it.

      I agree with you. But Cain was in a no win situation because if he had gotten angry and indignant he would have been slammed for being out of control. And that would come from the Hot Air/NRO/Ace beta male eunuchs.

      No, O’Donnell set him up good. You can tell by the sh*t eating grin on Larry’s face that he KNEW he had Cain over a barrel. So Cain stayed calm and now he’s a tool who knows he has to keep his place as a non-threatening black man in the Republican party. It was a perfect set up. Cain is now a draft dodging coward who sat out the civil rights movement. Brainwashing at it’s finest.

      But I so WISH Cain had gotten mad. But I wish that of every conservative I see on TV. They never do because they think it will make them look bad by sinking to the other sides level. Just once I’d like to see it happen.

        I’m not exactly foaming at the mouth or pissing my pants in rage, and Herman Cain didn’t have to, either. He could’ve rapid-fired those questions right back at Doogie Houser, and held just as straight a face as Doogie did. I get mad, plenty of times, and when dealing with socialist weaklings like Doogie, all you have to do is beat them over the head with the disconnect of your words and your demeanor; normally, they can’t take it, and snap. I can ask every one of those questions in response to Doogie Houser’s rudeness, and look as pleasant as punch. This in intimidation, and until Conservatives find their own intimidation factors, they’ll remain just what they are, now: easy pickins’ and wimps.

    MSNBC just wanted to try to slam Cain at every turn. Sad thing? O’Donnell does not possess enough brain cells to slam Herman Cain, nor apparently does any other liberal, because Cain makes sense and liberals don’t deal in the real world. As far as the Civil Rights movement, Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican as was his dad. Many black Americans were Republican. What happened? The democrats used the KKK to force black Americans to vote democratically. They fed them welfare and free benefits to win their votes as well. Sad but completely true and anybody that won’t do the research is a moron.

    O’donnell, did you serve in the military? were you a REMF? I think you must have been a Remf if you even served. I served 3 terms as an Airborne Infantryman. It is my opinion that you were a REMF ( HQ-PUKE) Your questioning of this candidate is sickening, because you wou never ask such disrespectful questions of the pukes from the left. Now, tell me you sheep herding moo cow; In what capacity did you serve?

    Wow, this interview really just pissed me off. That guy was so insulting. I think the thing that got me the most was him angrily demanding to know why Cain didn’t just “enlist like Kerry”, the hero who took his expensive video camera with him. I am from that era….just a couple years behind Mr. Cain. Enlisting for combat is a personal decision and really none of anyones business. He didn’t dodge the draft. He also didn’t dodge any of this creeps questions. I liked the way Cain handled this guy. The more I hear him talk, the more I like him. Honest. Real.

    FINALLY someone I can support! Please Herman keep your word with us and don’t patronize us like the Great Tease did!!! She lead us on and could not make not one phone call as a heads up to Peter Singleton, many others that supported her on the front lines. Just a kick to the curve! She really bummed me out. The way she treated us!

    I’m crossing my fingers and supporting Herman Cain and hope not to get burn again. I volunteer for his campaign in 2004. If he keeps this up I’ll do it again!

    One question Mr. O’Donnell… Where were you during the Vietnam war? Just sayin… People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Mr. Cain working for the department of Navy using his brain to help the war effort instead of getting shot at doesn’t make him a draft dodger. Soooo… What were you doing and who were you working for during the Vietnam War?

    This is CITIZEN CAIN!!!! To be ATTACKED (this was NO interview!!!) without a teleprompter (cheers, applause and adulation in the background) and to be able to respond accurately and honestly is why I give my full support to this great AMERICAN!!! You are the BEST thing to come along since the GRISWOLD cast iron skillet!!! INDESTRUCTIBLE!!!! You have my full support and dedication to informing the uninformed….. I believe in AMERICA and Jesus Christ… as does Herman Cain. Stay strong…..the attacks and bias slander will surely continue…..and that’s ALL they’ve got…that’s it….REALLY!!! I know you’ve GOT IT!!!……and well I GET IT too!!!! God Bless you!!!

    One question Mr. O’Donnell… Where were you during the Vietnam war?

    That’s easy… apart from attacking the troops….

    Larry “The Unstable Guy” O’Donnell was born November 7, 1951, turning eighteen and becoming eligible for service in Vietnam in 1969. Oddly enough he did not rush to the recruting office to enlist.

    Despite being given a draft lottery number of 72 in 1970, and the military taking numbers up to 125 that year, O’Donnell evaded the draft through a college deferment.

    Crazy Larry went onto work for Bubba Clinton (US’s first black President) who also dodged the draft.

    He also spends a lot of his time working on his show CRAZY TIME WITH LARRY to shill for the current VP Joe BideN — a man who ALSO dodged the draft with FIVE college deferments.

    This Lawrence O’Donnell is a serious moron! I’d like to know if he was standing with Rosa Parks and protesting with the blacks? NO, he must be a racist and wanted the blacks in the back of the bus! I’d like to know if he was in Viet Nam? NO, he must hate his country and be a worthless citizen! It’s a crying shame what a good man running for a public office has to go through and how they are treated by people (using the term loosely) like Lawrence O’Donnell. I can’t believe that he thinks blacks and other Americans are ignorant enough not to see through this kind of questioning. Mr. O’Donnell you are a pathetic example of a man!!! I for one will never watch MSNBC again!

    Actually I’m quite surprised at O’Donnell’s behavior during this interview. He actually shut up and let Herman Cain say what he had to say and didn’t interrupt. For that (and only that) I have to give O’Donnell credit. Yeah, he’s a slimeball and his line of questioning is typical of people like him (i.e. Shultz, Matthews, Olbermann, Maddow) but at least he didn’t interrupt Herman Cain like O’Reilly would’ve done even though I like O’Reilly.

  • Anonymous

    I like O’Donnell commentaries but will admit that was a wretched interview. Many of his questions and points left me going “huh”?? That aside, Cain’s biggest failing thus far is when presented with fact he cannot continue to respond with “that’s your opinion, I have mine”. Big difference between fact and opinion, you can dismiss opinion but you cannot simply wave off fact.

    O’Donnell looks like a salt lick with hair but that’s the good part. The putrescence that cascades from his pus-sodden lips is more than most mortals with sense could withstand without medical assistance.
