Case in point was Lawrence O'Donnell bragging about calling Mitt Romney a liar and challenging Tagg Romney to fisticuffs following a remark made in jest after the last debate about wanting to punch Obama for calling his Dad a liar.
Ohhh, big man O'Donnell. You chastising Tagg for his trust fund and the privileged life he has lead. What do you make sir? I'd wager at least a couple of million or more. Wouldn't all the 'middle class' workers you shill for like to make as much? I'm getting tired of all these TV commentaters complaining about the wealthy while most of them are right up there themselves. How hypocritical can you get?
Then there was Whoopie grilling Ann Romney of The View over Mitt not serving in Viet Nam. He was serving his mission. And the fact none of her sons served in the military. And wasn't it against their religion. It isn't. And wouldn't it be hard to face the parents of fallen service men because there is no blood of war on the hands of her men.
Never mind that while governor of Massachusetts Mitt attended the funeral of every fallen service man that came home. How many has Obama attended? How many times has he gone to the airbase when they've arrived?
I don't see where such confrontational dialog serves any purpose. If it's to make who you're referring to feel uncomfortable, I'm sure you've succeeded. If it's to make you look witty and clever, it hasn't. It makes you look small minded and nasty. It is anything but enlightening unless it's about yourself. It's demeaning, yes, to yourself. Was that your intent? If so then you did succeed.
By the way, Bill Clinton didn't serve in the military. How many funerals did he attend?
When Obama went to Andrews to meet the plane bringing back our men from Benghazi, Pat Smith, mother of dead Seal Sean, said this about her encounter with the President.
...She also said she cried on Barack Obama's shoulder. He hugged her and "looked away".I wouldn't be too hasty to give Obama an A in compassion. Oh, by the way. He didn't serve in the military either.
