It's possible to be both right and capable of putting up a fight.
I agree but neither Tagg or O'Donnell were right in this situation. The person with the right state of mind would have pointed out how insecure one must be if one needs to resort to physical threats of violence or suppress violent impulses when debating politics.
Maybe Taggart has a feeble mind and can't come back with a well reasoned rebuttal to the Presidents debate points. And maybe Lawrence O'Donnell thinks that liberals get a bad rep for coming across as too intellectual so he wants to look like a tough guy by squaring up with a camera in the studio.
