O'Donnell fails to capture the 2016 impact of what this speech will do.
Rather than 'suicide' Rand's campaign..
He can watch along with the rest of both Dems and Pubs..
as Rand will do what NO other recent Conservative candidate has EVER been able to do: activate and swing the MINORITY vote into a Republican ticket.
In those States where Dems can vote in the Republican primaries he can now win.
Dem strategists must be reaching for the bottle right now.
Rand is STEALING their voters in mass and demolishing the 2 party paradigm with PLENTY of time to fertilize and grow.
Strategic and Ingenious.
O'Donnell and the Dems will do their best to spin it away from where this is truly heading.
Grab your popcorn.

Well said

My thoughts exactly

One of the reasons I can't

One of the reasons I can't stand the msm in this country. O'Donnell's praising Rand, while slamming the Republicans. Stirring the pot of left vs. right. When "libertarianism finds itself with liberalism" - yeah how bout the other way around. And what about the liberals who, as long as Obama is doing it, are fine with NSA snooping, all these wars, indefinite detention, drones, etc. Where are the liberals who are standing up for civil liberties then?

An Aberration

O'Donnell may have had his meds tweaked so he had a lucid moment (no foaming at the mouth).


what a douche

"...like his father before him, Rand Paul will never be president"

yup, my point precisely,

this is NOT a 'praise,' but a transparent HITPIECE against Rand, and the Pauls, plus, for added measure that fcuktard decided he'll prepare an attack Ad for the benefit and convenience of any would be GOP challengers to Rand:


Predictions in due Time...

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Here's the Youtube, radiofriendly!


"Air is the very substance of our freedom, the substance of superhuman joy....aerial joy is freedom."--Gaston Bachelard--



"First rule of Government Spending: Why build one when you can have 2 at twice the price?"
-S.R. Hadden

the other olbmermann

is still an a$$ hat. He blatantly tried to turn this into an attack ad for Ted Cruz?

lol wtf bro Rand's Wife helped get Ted elected with Ron and Rand both endorsing him. I don't doubt if it came to it there would be attack ads even possibly from Cruz..but those would first come from Santorum, Bush, Jindal and Christie, not Ted Cruz.


O'Donnell has his own agenda.

I dont think he was doing it to please Republicans or Libertarians. He was highlighting what Rand said about Barack Obama. He's gloating and basically saying, "See. Barack Obama is a great leader."

Rand just threw the Democrats

Rand just threw the Democrats a bone they found palatable. First one ever. Nice chess move. They didn't bite on the Proud of Obama for Syria decision quote.

Senator Rand Paul is

Senator Rand Paul is definitely a different kind of Republican leader. Disenfranchised Democrats on the fence are going to take notice and vote for him in 2016.

looks like

Larry Uh Doh!no's trying to pull a Madcow: kiss ass, build indirect rapport in hopes of garnering an interview, then ambush, smear, cut off, scream at, edit, edit, delay, convenient satellite cut-off, distort, smear, distort, smear, press-recyle, etc. etc. etc.

NEVER forget who your Enemies are


Hope Rand and his staff are a bit more MSM-savvy, now, especially after his experience w/that pressitute monster GE/MSDNC-warWHORE racist-funded career pedigree beneficiary: Rachel Madcow.

Plus, don't know if you guys have all watched the thread cited segment in full, but it's a pretty cheap hitpiece; it actually is NOT a "praise" at all, as O'Dunno's primary emphasis was to PUSH the meme that 'Hey lookie here Rand's potential challengers: let me give you an attack AD idea! Use the following clip I'm about to show you of Rand stating "What a tragedy it would have been if America wouldn't have gotten to see Barack Obama as a leader."

Rand, obviously said that about oBUSHma at the Senate hearing, sarcastically to poke the moron Demtards in audience, to 'guilt-nudge' them, somewhat.

And, predictably, in turn, O'Dunno's simply using the same statement by Rand, for his own sarcastic use; notice he repeated that clip of Rand saying that about oBUSHma, at the end, again, for added measure, so that would be the last thing to be seared into his viewers' minds.

Apparently O'Duhnno 'thinks' he's pretty 'witty' to drop that into political discourse: 'Hey RINOs, you guys don't really want this guy, do you?'-meme.

If you watch that clip again, be sure to count the number of times that, that failed TV-scribe dipshiit reminds his equally moronic 550 soccermoms and L vs. R brainwashed oBUSHmaBot drones who tune in: "Like his father, he'll never be the GOP nominee, nor the President."

Just count the number of times he says that about Rand; Larry's doing the NLP repetition with 'strong forceful' intonation found in a whiny burnt out, pissed-off, has-been liberal-arts professor chiding his students for not doing their homework, properly the way he control-freakily told them to.

That, was NOT a "praise."

And, it's not even a 'sophisticated' hitpiece; this is like elementary school class president election campaign material.

Hey, EVERY New York r3VOL, whenever you bump into that asshole in the street, remind him that no matter how many times Larry Uh' Doh!no tries to copy old-school anchor's vocal cadence, rhythm and intonation, along with the whole 'I'm gonna be serious now: watch me take off my glasses like Walter Kronkite when he declared JFK had been shot in Dallas to convey seriousness'-acting trick, no one whose main claim to fame was being an errand boy for an overgrown DC douchebag' who's never done any actual journalistic in his entire life, could EVER become a real journalist.

For those who still are open minded enough to give that douchebag the benefit of the doubt, even after watching my above posted October 2010 video, and how he's continuously smeared the Pauls every chance he gets? Just remember, everyone you see on television regularly, is by profession, and in actuality: actors, nothing more, nothing less.

Another O'Donnell Classic: "Interviewing" Peter Schiff


"Air is the very substance of our freedom, the substance of superhuman joy....aerial joy is freedom."--Gaston Bachelard--


yeah, and notice how that asshole invoked Peter's father, for emotional 'stun' to take Peter off his game, even further.

Larry Uh-Doh-no is the most despicable of all pressitutes/closet WarWHORES, not to mention, is an unapologetically self-professed socialist:


How fitting that a REAL socialist would willfully, knowingly work for a Military Industrial Compex contractor, GE's MSDNC, eh? Proving the case that socialist statists ARE FOR state-initiated murder/wars and theft of private property.

I've tracked that crazy motherfcuker since his days as a scribe for Sorkin's TV show, West Wing, then his brief on/off substitute stint at Air America Radio during that one year it ran 'officially' in 2004, along with how MADcow kissed ass to survive there, when every one of their marquee talent were shelved.

And, how more concretely fitting that Uh-Doh-no's currently being featured on and off on 100% propaganda show "Homeland" and delusional liberals' unicorn-'don't you wish?' "Newsroom," another Sorkin pro-Democrat Party fascist PR propaganda.

That dirtbag is Exhibit A) factual reality that TV 'anchors' are all actors; for one thing, for starters the douche actually IS a SAG member.


Okay so to be fair, even if you are a nominal, run of the mill pressitute 'actor' on TV, and if you get a walk-on gig for films and TV often (like in a film's 'news' segment to make it seem like 'real news' is 'also' talking about the fictonal scenario being depicted in their film/tv product), you get your SAG card. That said, in Uh-Doh-no's case he was a member of Writers Guild and SAG, then 'news anchor.'

Yup, no dispute that douche is both literal and figurative actor.

OH no! My hair just caught on

OH no! My hair just caught on fire in spontaneous combustion!

Lawrence O'Donnell did not just bust Senator Rand Paul into the hearts of Democrat impenetrability. He busted it wide open.

Thank You Mr O'Donnell.

Debbie's picture

O'Donnell lavished praise on Rand for what he said today but

then ripped him for everything he has said on every other day! Typical.


Rand playing his hand, winning Democrat voters...

... in 2016. Take that to the bank Lawrence.
