Life for "The View" After Rosie

Rosie O'Donnell is leaving "The View" and I could not be happier. Her views are so horrible, her hate for anything US so obvious, and her behavior is so irritating. Yet, in the end, she may have been a good thing for the talk show.

Before Rosie, the show had been limping along for quite some time. Executive Producer Babara Walters dumped Star Jones because she was losing her spark and Rosie had become the new queen of controversy.

O'Donnell attacked virtually everything and everyone she could think of. US troops were described as terrorists, Bush was responsible for September 11th, Donald Trump has bad hair, etc., etc., etc. She even attacked the lovely Elisabeth Hasselbeck (photo, do you think I would have one of Rosie?) for being "too sweet" and "too Christian."

I protest the show and simply won't watch it, but it appears that many others became interested in the program and it is clear O'Donnell helped the ratings. In fact, Babara Walters is fighting off claims that the most recent battle between Hasselbeck and O'Donnell was simply for ratings. That battle stemmed from the fact that Hasselbeck rightly implied that Rosie was calling US troops terrorists.
In the end, The View was popular with Rosie, not because of her talent, but in the tradition of people who use to go and watch trains crash for entertainment. High drama, high action, but not much substance. So who will replace O'Donnell? Maybe Donald Trump will be on for a while in the name of "equal time." After all, he needs something to do since The Apprentice appears to be history.
Life may not be "too Rosie" for the view if they don't find someone to keep the viewers coming. I just hope that replacement has them watching for better reasons than a disaster in the making.

I appreciate how specific your comments were. Rosie seems to have disdain for our country, our troops, and our values. If those reflect your views "Rock on to you," but do it some where else.
