    the last three nights were great pieces of coverage based on fact not speculation and fantasy. I’m beginning to realize that Lawry has hidden depths, even more than I had originally given him credit for.

      I hear you lisa…I was so disappointed with him because I expected more of him because he knows how the ins and outs of DC, but more often that not he would act as dopey as all the other pretend journalist. These last three nights he proved he is better than all the rest. I hope he will stay on point…

        Me, too. The last three nights have been so refreshing – and a real joy to behold. I even had to hold the phone up to the TV to force my sister to listen to him over the phone. Simply brilliant – and I think he’s the only one of these TV people who gets President Obama, and knows what he’s actually talking about.

          He really does. Most of the time his commentary and insight are spot on. Sometimes he runs amok and has these PL types who don’t know how a government works, give their “expert” analysis and try to put President Obama in a corner. When Lawrence gives the commentary, analysis, the break down of how things work, he’s in top form. The last three nights have indeed been a thrill. I guess he really needed that mini vacation to put things in proper perspective. Hope he continues in this vein. I always like when he’s invited on Morning Joe and he smacks knowledge in their collective faces. Brilliant!

        Lawrence also know that he probably get better ratings from PBO supporters when he really tell the truth and get the real word out. He is competing against KO now. Of course, I am sure Lawrence is probably beating KO in the ratings. KO is back with his same stale special comments, telling PBO what he need to do. Lawrence has really been off the hook this week.

          KO may haven’t gotten viewers from the Old Orange contingent, but that’s about it. Not only that, but his “special rant” seems kinda silly now that Obama’s brilliant strategy has been partly publicized.

              KO really just needs to cool his bark; because it’s always empty threat after empty threat. HE DOES NOT VOTE. He’s an American citizen and yet he treats the highest civic duty in a cavalier manner. If one does not vote, when one has that privilege and right, then one should shut up. No vote = No power.

        How’s about tweeting him (those that do) and telling him just this. Sorry but not tech savvy! Also Rev Al needs his own show. Great stuff by both!

    Mr. O’donnell has always been right on point on all of his analyses as far as politics goes, He has always said and keeps on saying that No one, No one, could ever beat Mr. Obama next year, I do believe he is right on point on that also.

    No weapon formed against me, shall prosper. Father God, we your people are leaning and depending on you to deliver us from our messy economy. Help us all Lord, I pray for peace and harmony In Congress. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness, Amen

    O’Donnell is on point. I didn’t know that Bill Clinton had tinkered with SS – and there was nary a peep from the Dem Caucus about it. Where was Bernie Sanders then?

    he was on fire. I’ve already watched his opening segment from last night 4 times, I enjoyed it so much. I still LOL at his description of what the President did to the last set of hostage takers he dealt with

    That’s my sugar daddy, Lawrence! The only pundit I watch regularly — I love his big head filled with big brains :mrgreen: .

    I am so impressed with Lawrence. I quit watching any news channels or shows a long time ago, get my info online, watch streaming video of President Obama or C-Span online. Lawrence makes me want to watch him at least and that’s a big deal for me. What I really like about him is that he gives so many facts around an issue. He explains about the left and what they have been saying or the Republicans. I don’t know that I’ve seen any other commentator explain the factors around an issue as clearly as he has. Thanks for posting these, Chips!

      I was especially impressed when Lawrence exposed Trump for his fake run for president. He was relentless. One day when he admonished MSNBC to stop promoting Trump’s hate, and the next day he was off for a couple of days. It turned out that everything he said about Trump was true.

    I have been impressed with Lawrence the past few days too. I especially liked his comment on how POTUS handles hostage takers! LOL!!!
