Does Lawrence O'Donnell Really Fear a Romney Nomination?

Yesterday in New Hampshire Larry O’Connor of caught up with Lawrence O’Donnell and asked him his opinion on the Republican field. Here’s what he had to say:

Romney is the one they don’t want. They know they can beat anybody else. Romney, they think they can beat, but it’s a harder road… The problem Romney has is that he cannot energize Republicans.

Lawrence O’Donnell also sounded off on how the vice presidential picks don’t really matter and how McCain would have been marginally better off picking Tim Pawlenty and not Sarah Palin as his running mate.

Really? Could it be that Lawrence O’Donnell and his MSNBC colleagues simply have the largest opposition research file on Mitt Romney from years of following him?

O’Donnell perhaps gave us a taste of the Democratic strategy against Mitt Romney when he said the following, after repeatedly calling Romney by his first name, Willard, so as to make him look out of touch:

Mitt Romney is so rich he doesn’t have a reality show on NBC…It couldn’t be more clear that Mitt Romney knows how to kill jobs. There is absolutely no evidence that he knows anything, anything at all, about how to create jobs.

O’Donnell has repeatedly called Romney a “pathological liar.”

And let’s not forget that Lawrence O’Donnell is an admitted socialist.

In December 11, 2007, Lawrence O’Donnell attacked Mitt Romney’s Mormonism as a “racist faith.” It is the same attack that Ted Kennedy made in 1994 to great effect. That was before he made bigoted comments against Hermain Cain and Michael Steele.
