I bemoan to say this, but at one time I actually was a fan of Rosie O'Donnell. Her latent "ploy" to take on everyone is really growing thin with
She began with Donald Trump. Trump is no boyscout, and he could care less what he says. Rosie made some bold accusations and stuck her chin where it
did not belong. Trump responded harshly and this little drama stunt was off to the races. It was annoying having to hear of it on a daily basis, and
watching both take jabs at one another day in and day out. One was enough! Then she decides it is time to take on American Idol. It wasn't enough
to call out Paula Abdul for her "supposed" drinking, but she begins to criticize Jackson and Cowell for their treatment of contestants.
Hold up! Rosie O'Donnell is criticizing people for being controversial to garner attention and headlines? She is? Talk about hypocrisy. Stones in
the glass house Rosie, give it up. She has tackled anyone and everyone, and is receiving attention that she has not seen before. Come down off the
soap box dear and zip it. We are tired of hearing your opinion on subjects that do not pertain to you. Your there to interview stars, not to tell
everyone else how to live their life.
When did she become a political adviser? Did I miss something?
Again I say, I bemoan to admit that at one time, I was a fan of this woman.
I prefer to see neutrality. When individuals are using their television time to stand up on their soap box and preach to the masses, I have a problem
with it. Even if I agree with what they are saying, I have a problem. I prefer to see individuals remain neutral and present both sides of the
story. Sure a case can be made for Bush to be impeached. But at the same time, the case can be made to go against it. It is not enough to "agree"
with these tactics when we agree with the message.
If "The View" wants to take a one sided approach on every issue, then so be it. Personally, I'd rather watch something where both sides are
discussed and explored. We are all better served rather than watching individuals make accusations and point fingers.
