I’m not sure if I agree with Lawrence O’Donnell here, but this is powerful and insightful. There are many things to recommend it. For one, there is some Nixon administration history, and I love Nixon stuff. I really want to go to his library! And there is more about the now infamous Romney 47% video, where the real story seems to be the audience who make me despair of their class and for our society. My concern about accepting his argument is that I think the treatment of the Obama administration by the Republicans is the same as it was of the Clinton administration. All the talk of socialism and tyranny were the same then. I’m sure race is a factor, I just don’t think it is the primary one.
Watch this. It’s good:
