Elizabeth Hasselbeck

I was thinking back on the past year and all the fights that have been brought to the forefront on The View. I actually feel bad for Elizabeth Hasselbeck. Poor girl tries to speak her mind and voice her opinion, but she gets viciously shut down by the other women on the show. Everyone is entiled to their opinion and just because she is the only right wing person on the show doesn't mean she doesn't deserve respect. I know the other women feel strongly about their opinions, but how is that different from EH feeling strongly about hers? Is it ok for the other women to gang up on her and make it seem like she is 100% wrong for speaking her mind? They don't have to agree with her, but to bully her like they do is wrong. I know a lot of you reading this might not agree with my "view" about this, and that's ok with me. This was just on my mind and I felt like speaking my opinion. This is also why I hate politics. It can get so heated and personal.

I agree with you 100%! I believe that EB should be able to speak her mind. I used to watch this show, and now I honestly do not watch it for that reason exactly. Rosie O'Donnell also killed it for me. When she used to jump on EB all the time it drove me nuts! Well, there's my rant for the day.

I agree with you, also. Everyone has a right to their opinion whether we agree with it or not! I recently had a discussion with someone who would not agree to disagree. He actually go mad when I tried to present my reasoning, then ended up being very insulting to me. I thought this is why my nephew is in Iraq and the rest of the troops around the world, fighting to give us freedoms, such as expressing our views without fear of reprisal. Some people take their own opinions as bottom line, absolute 100% correct, and never give anyone else a chance to state theirs. Ok, my rant for the day, also!
