The View Gets Better!

I didn't see the show, but I caught some of the online video from today's episode of "The View"

Let me just say that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is slowly climbing up on my Heroes List. I thoroughly enjoyed the exchange between she and Rosie O'Donnell today, because I loved how Mrs. Hasselbeck refused to be bullied by Rosie's familiar tactics. Elisabeth stood her ground, refused to be shouted down, and flat-out gave it to O'Donnell but good.

I admit that controversy sells, and the loudest mouths typically draw the most attention, but sometimes intelligence and fortitude have to earn a round of applause. Elisabeth, you got mine this evening.

Rosie, you need to thank your lucky stars that you're afforded the freedom of speech you enjoy by this country you seem to hate so much, and you might add a modicum of gratitude to the troops you seem to think of as terrorists. (this from the quote "who are the real terrorists in Iraq?" after she pointed out that 650,000 Iraqis have died since the war began)

Elisabeth, intelligence wins out over belligerance. Just because someone yells more loudly doesn't mean they're right. And you're right, you do base your arguments on facts. Good job.

  1. I never did like a bully on the playground, on the set, or or in politics. Rosie needs to have whatever crawled up her butt and died surgically removed.

  2. Apparently Rosie had a little stress ball the other day when they had Andy Baldwin (aka the Bachelor) on, and Elisabeth was asking all of the questions and - wonder of wonders - Rosie kept her mouth shut the whole interview. We should deport Rosie . . . maybe to France?

  3. Amen.

    I saw the clips on the internet, and I must say I was pleased to see Elizabeth step it up and get in Rosie's face. And you're right--the loudest does not mean the winner. Rosie would not let Elizabeth finish her statements and I wanted to slap her (Rosie).

    I find it ironic that Rosie claims to go by 'facts', but she is so void of them. She's one of those people that drives me nuts because she hasn't a clue about foreign policy, war, or much of anything for that matter.

    kristeee--let's not punish France; they did get a new president after all who might prove to be pro-American. Let's send her so some other socialist/anti-american country: Canada? Venezuela? Cuba?

  4. Undoubtedly, the ratings of that show will suffer when Rosie is gone - unless they bring someone similar in, like Roseanne Barr.

  5. Rosie has really crossed the line. You can have an opinion but you don't need to be hurtful. We all need to agree to disagree, respectfully.

  6. Rosie's an ignorant cow (and the term "cow" has nothing to do with her weight) She never lets ANYONE speak. Doesn't want to let someone with a brain have the floor. She ought to hang out with her "buddies" in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan...You know, the ones who according to HER ... AREN'T terrorists? But to her OUR SOLDIERS are!

    So help me if I see her on the street when I'm in NY or Jersey...She'd get more than just a piece of my mind
