Rosie vs the Human Talking point on the View
TV News - Co-Hosts React to Latest 'View' Feud - AOL News Co-Hosts React to Latest 'View' Feud O'Donnell, Hasselbeck Each Respond to Clash AP NEW YORK (May 24) -- Watching Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck(R-cute liar) squabble on ABC's "The View" is nothing new, but Wednesday's dustup seemed particularly nasty with the co-hosts trading accusations and personal digs. A political discussion over the war in Iraq became heated when an angry O'Donnell decried Hasselbeck for not standing up for her when media outlets suggested that she'd called U.S. troops "terrorists" during a previous debate."What you did was not defend me. ... I asked you if you believed what the Republican pundits were saying - you said nothing, and that's cowardly," O'Donnell said.Responded a stern Hasselbeck: "Do not call me a coward, because No. 1, I sit here every single day, open my heart and tell people what I believe."O'Donnell and Hasselbeck were shown on a split screen as the argument progressed without commercial interruption."Do you believe that I think our troops are terrorists? And you would not even look me in the face, Elisabeth, and say, `No, Rosie,"' O'Donnell said.Responded Hasselbeck: "Because you are an adult, and I am certainly not going to be the person for you to explain your thoughts. They're your thoughts! Defend your own insinuations!"O'Donnell, who is leaving the ABC daytime talk show next month, said she wasn't going to fight anymore. "So for three weeks, you can say all the Republican crap you want."Hasselbeck discussed the war of words in an interview with syndicated entertainment show "Extra" that was to air Wednesday evening."I honestly think, I believe that we are mature women who can resolve," she said. "I hope we can. I would hope that a disagreement or a heated debate wouldn't be the end of a relationship."In a posting on her blog, O'Donnell wrote: "a split screen, new heights, or lows, depending on who u ask." personal take: I managed to catch this flare up the other day for myself, Hasselbeck display your typical female right wing defense mode change the subject of how much a failure George W. Bush is and whine that you're getting attack personally. It's getting hard out there for the 28%ers to defend George Bush so they lash out when you press them on why their defense for a man who has done nothing to better America is so strong. These people wanted Bill Clinton head when they caught him lying about oral sex and they would gotten away with it too if many of them wasn't worried about their dirty laundry aired out but with Bush he ignored warnings about 9.11 they go that's ok, let oil companies rob the treasury no biggie, lied this country into war which has lead to the deaths of over 3000 troops they go well Clinton said the same thing about Saddam and weapons. I remember MTV show a clip of the other co host Joy asking Hasslebeck why does she still defends this man, Lizzy Hasslebeck knows deep down the only reason she's sill defending the boob in the White House is because George W. Bush has an R after his name and since she's a good little right wing Republican cheerleader that's all she needs.
