Elisabeth eventually admitted that she doesn't think Rosie thinks the US troops are terrorists, but it took some extracting.Originally Posted by angelic_one2002;2414998;
Whatever people may think of Rosie, she clearly supports the troops.
As much as Elisabeth thinks this attack on Iraq was necessary and mystifyingly seems to think the US is doing a good job there, she doesn't appear to have lent her support to the troops in terms of fund raising for them or visiting sick and injured troops.
If she had I have no doubt she'd have talked about it on the show.
I think Rosie articulated her point poorly when she posed the question "who are the terrorists?"
Had she said, "because US troops have killed 650,000 civilians there are probably people in the world who think Americans are terrorists", that
statement would not have been so open to Republican spin.
It was clear on Monday that Rosie was hurt that as her friend, Elisabeth would not speak up for her over that issue.
There was obvious tension between them yesterday and it spilled over in spectacular style today.
Elisbeth was as irritating as ever, imo.
She couldn't even let Joy read out her list of Bush, failures/issues whatever you want to call them, without butting in.
She is just as rude as the cable shows accuse Rosie of being, but she's on their side so is portrayed as 'poor little Elsiabeth'.
I can see where Rosie is coming from with regard to the way she is portrayed in the media when she disagrees with Elisabeth.
Sure, she often does it in a rude and ham-fisted way, but Elisabeth fights back, is often rude and ignorant and doesn't get the kind of negativity directed toward her that Rosie does.
I imagine that's primarily because she isn't a big name.
Dinner with the Queen or not, she's essentially a nobody
Barbara's probably receiving C.P.R. after that second segment of hot Topics.
