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?
