Whether she is or not, I’m using her own tactics and words against her (and her fellow co-hosts). On the upcoming Barbara Walters “10 Most Fascinating People” special, one of the people Barbara interviews is former GOP primary candidate Herman Cain. Also interviewed in the special is Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad. When Barbara brings that up to discuss with her fellow View co-hosts, Joy immediately leapt at the chance to disparage Herman Cain, asking Barabara of whom she was most afraid …Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad or Herman Cain? Apparently Joy Blowhard is more afraid of a black man than she would be a brutal Hezbollah terrorist.
Joy, when are you going to realize that you are not funny? Bashar al-Assad is a terrorist leader and sympathizer of Hezbollah, a proxy terror group for Iran, and you are trying to equate someone like that to the unfairly maligned Herman Cain, who is a devout Christian, married for 43 years to his wife, Gloria? Assad’s goon squads have killed thousands of dissidents in Syria who have protested the dictator’s decades-long rule, yet Herman Cain is merely being ACCUSED of inappropriate behavior with mostly unknown women, all of whose claims can be clearly disproved given the chance for an appropriate investigation.
…but does he even realize it? I mean seriously, he came off looking so pompous and arrogant that I don’t even think he knows what happened to him. This was DEFINITELY a segment worthy of O’Reilly’s body language expert, Tonya Reiman. As you watch this whole video (I know it’s long, but it’s so worth it), keep an eye on Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s body language and see if you don’t see the same thing I did. I would say he’s really offended by Gregory’s lack of knowledge on the Palestinian/Israeli situation, but that would be offensive on MY part because Netanyahu is way too smart to even acknowledge this pleeb and his arguments.
Here’s a portion of the transcript that is particularly telling of the mood:
MR. GREGORY: So I’m, I’m not making a judgment, I, I’m simply kind of reading where we are. Let, let me ask you this question, Israel is arguably as isolated as it’s ever been in the midst of Arab spring. Turkey has turned against you, the Arab world has moved away from dictators who supported Israel, had peace treaties with Israel, and is now more negative towards Israel. In this day and age, at this particular moment, despite Israel’s well-known and substantial security concerns, how can you occupy Palestinian territory at this moment?
I was going to type “I am absolutely stunned by this man’s ignorance,” but then I re-viewed the tape during editing….sad fact is, I am not stunned by it. What I am stunned by is The View’s harpie audience applauding like seals, buying into his garbage about what the Tea Party wants and what the GOP is willing to do regarding the debt-ceiling debate. He also gets it completely wrong as to what is holding up a deal being reached, and how significant the Tea Party is or not.
Needless to say, Joy Behar gets in her needles about Social Security. What are you worried about, you stupid fool? You have plenty of money, and Social Security shouldn’t even been on the TABLE for people of your financial stature! I have no delusion that SS will be there for me in any form whatsoever.
Also of note is Whoopi’s lack of reaction regarding raising taxes, seeing as how she’s recently been a vocal opponent of paying too damn many taxes herself. Whoopi, you brought up the Social Security issue, but you should have known better to follow up with an ‘I thought our Social Security withholdings were kept in a lockbox?’ argument, but you didn’t. What’s up with that?
