And it sure looked like it was incredibly difficult for Elisabeth to say that she didn't believe Rosie thought the troops were terrorists, but that was irrelevant at that point.
On both Monday and Wednesday Rosie made no bones about the fact that she thinks this administration are terrorists, not the troops. She kept talking about the fact that this administration throws the word "terror" around to keep Americans fearful and doing whatever the administration wants. She stated that other countries would look at what has happened in Iraq and think the same of our administration. Unfortunately she didn't state her opinion in six succinct words: "I think our administration are terrorists" or people would have understood.
She didn't want Elisabeth to fight her opinion for her, but rather acknowledge that she knew that Rosie didn't think the troops are terrorists. Elisabeth couldn't see the differentiation on Monday and refused to answer. By Wednesday that portion of the argument was a moot point as the damage was done.
