Toggle Commented Nov 12, 2011 on HOSTING Hannity---TONIGHT! at Monica Crowley
So Monica spends days assailing President Obama for supposedly calling Congressman Paul Ryan's 2012 budget plan "un-American"...then she goes on O'Reilly tonight and calls President Obama's policies "un-American" and goes even further by adding that these policies give fuel to birthers and others who feel "he's not one of us"? Why do I even bother with this woman? I'm done.

I understand Monica does not agree with President Obama on probably 100% of the issues, but this piece does not offer any new ideas. All she says is vote GOP and all will be fixed? Really? The problems we as a country are facing right now are a result of policies that survived through Republican and Democratic presidencies over the past 35 years. Did China suddenly emerge after January 20th 2009 or something? Did our deficit magically go from zero to $1.5 trillion since January 20th 2009? I understand and fully support the idea that we all can criticize the current President's policies and so on, but for crying out loud be intellectually honest. If Monica wants to trumpet Mahmoud Abbas and his comments about President Obama - maybe she should also have pointed out that Abbas is the disputed head of the Palestinian National Authority because his term expired in 2009 but he has refused to relinquish power? Also, maybe Monica should have pointed out that fact that the issue of Israeli settlements has been the sticking point in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since before Reagan administration and every US President has struggled in this regard? I expect better from Monica Crowley...fair criticism please, not blindly partisan articles.

"CHANNEL NEWS ASIA (Singapore based) is so far above CNN International (I've been watching them both) especially in covering Asia, it's embarrassing. CNN obviously has the boots on the ground in ME, and arguably Japan, but that's about it. CNA manages to cover the whole texture of life as it is lived, in addition to the usual Hot Headlines." - posted by Gringoman. Thanks for the tip bro...will definitely add CNA to my rotation...I'm really looking forward to it after reading your description. Much obliged!

The problem with shows like The Mclaughlin Group or any other show that pits rightie pundits against leftie pundits is that nothing new is ever said, and I never learn anything. The responses are predictable - Monica and Uncle Pat bash President Obama and Eleanor Clift and whoever her colleague defend President Obama. So boring and clichéd. When Bush was the President, the roles were reversed....same result - nothing new said, and I never learned anything. I'd rather spend my time learning and growing - hence I watch CNN International, BBC World, Al Jazeera English, C-SPAN's Washington Journal, Sky News, EuroNews, ITN and so on. You'd be hard pressed to find pundits offering their opinions on these networks (thankfully).

If troops are placed on the ground in Libya - wouldn't that be similar to intervening in the war between Iraq and Iran? Posted by: Truther | March 26, 2011 at 04:53 PM Not really, since we backed Iraq and the Soviets backed Iran.

Fun reading, but Hillary won't try to run against the President in 2012 and I don't see her trying again in 2016...she'll be pushing 70 at that point and would probably be more interested in enjoying time with family and relaxing.

Monica's piece here makes no sense whatsoever. Can't say I'm surprised, but sometimes I actually hope to see her be sensible in her criticism of the President. Her piece is riddled with inaccuracies and misinformation - try harder Monica.
@DJ - thanks for responding. As I mentioned in my response to Ummah, I don't see either one of them making it out of the GOP primary. The support for Trump at this point isn't even registering on the GOP radar, and Palin trails folks like Huckabee and Romney in polls. Things could change as time goes by, but going by what I've seen of Palin, she's get clobbered in the GOP primary debates. I don't think she'll run though, so this might be a moot point. What do you think?

Ummah...I don't doubt that you believe in Palin or Trump...my question was do you believe either can get enough support to win in a general election. Is that a disruptive question to ask? I don't think it is. You ask what my point is - well, my point is that I have a hard time seeing how Palin or Trump survive the GOP primary. I also wasn't pushing any "media-approved lamestream RINO", so not sure where you got that idea. I have no qualms with whomever ends up winning the GOP primary.

@DJ - do you seriously believe Palin or Trump can defeat President Obama in a general election?
Toggle Commented Mar 6, 2011 on The McLaughlin Group at Monica Crowley
Ummah...does that mean the experience argument was invalid just because it was brushed aside? If Monica and others truly believed in the experience argument when they used it to oppose candidate Obama - I mean, Monica herself kept saying having someone inexperience would put our country in danger - then the same argument should remain today...even if it is once again brushed aside, no? As for Governor Christie's chances with the Tea Party - what is the opposition to him based on? I haven't really been following that line of discussion so any insight you can provide would be appreciated.

Monica and others opposed to President Obama's candidacy back in 2007 used "lack of experience" as a core argument, but now lack of experience is irrelevant when it comes to Governor Chris Christie as a potential GOP presidential candidate? That strikes me as rather inconsistent.

@MJFELL - there's a push for Sharia law in America? That's a new one. Please tell me more.

Blacks care little about non-racial issues, much as people had perceived of a Jesse Jackson presidency.... POSTED BY: TRUTHER | MARCH 02, 2011 AT 03:50 PM Well, that's your opinion, not a statement of fact. I'd say blacks who are over the age of 50 would probably care a bit more about racial issues than those younger - probably because their formative and younger years were defined by the civil rights struggles of the late '50s and '60s. Not sure it's fair to throw blacks or any other group of people in general into the one bucket. Just my humble opinion.

I have never seen a President and an administration so consistently WRONG on so many issues, coupled with a dangerous expansion of power in the Executive Branch. The House needs to keep an enormously tight rein on funding until 2012. POSTED BY: ROB | MARCH 02, 2011 AT 02:19 PM You sound just like lefties circa 2006...
