Default Rosie on "The View"

i think Rosie Odonnell (spelling?)is quite annoying, intrusive and a "show hog". I dont see her having much longevity on The View. what do u think of her on this show?

I am watching it as I type........I thought Rosie was going to call Elisabeth, Tom Selleck, when they started the gun control topic...

She has signed on only for one year, I think there may be underlying tension, among the new, fun things Rosie brings to the table...Time will tell.

She's OK but I think eventually it will become the Rosie O'Donnell show again. I don't think Elizabeth likes her and I think Barbara's nose is out of joint, but I think Joy is a great match for Rosie. Rosie is over bearing and opinionated but there's nothing wrong with that. At least she's not kissing Barbara Walter's ass all the time like the others do. As you might have guessed I cannot stand Barbara Walters. I have to mute the sound when she talks as her voice is like fingernails down a blackboard.

HAHAHA

I liked the show originally, but only get to see it sporadically. I will have to take someone else's word with regard to Rosi's part. I just can't go there! She is the one I would be hitting the mute button for!

I stopped watching "The View" when Rosie came on. I think they took a great show and spoiled it with this person. I am glad for Meredith Viera that she moved up. I was terribly sorry to see her go. Rosie is not even a poor replacement for Meredith.

The last time I watched- I just wanted to grab the tv re: Rosie- can't stand her at all. She won't allow anyone else to talk and she is kissing up to Barbara.
The View has gone down hill. I think that Merithe move to Today show is not going as smooth as what everyone had thought.

I agree with the majority..I can't stand Rosie. She is over bearing, has no manners and thinks she knows everything. I only watched the View a few times but now I don't turn it on at all anymore. My guess is Elizabeth will leave

I also have a difficult time with Rosie. I have tried to understand where she is coming from, but still don't understand. No one deserves to be that unhappy with people. No one needs to be as narrow minded as she is. But what all of you have to understand is that several years ago, her friend Madonna told her that no publicity is bad, and lots of it is good. She said do what you can to be out there.

She screams tolerance for the gay community, but bashes Christians, and now the Pope. You simply can not include everyone in a group like that.

She reminds me of some of the students I have worked with over the years. So badly hurt that they lash out at anyone, and everyone.

I do not support Rosie, but I do keep her in my thoughts and prayers. She is speaking to some that are 2 fries short of a happy meal. Someone might try to hurt her, and that would be a shame.

Two sandwiches short of a picnic

Two bats short of a belfrey

I taco short of a combination plate

There's enough nuttiness to go around...

I for one like Rosie and think it is A.O.K. for her and any other woman to be strong and opinionated.

The pope has made some serious mistakes, but we must remember he was a member of Hitler Youth.

Some "Christians" have erred by assuming they are somehow better than others in the eyes of god. My religious teachings say putting one's self above others and pretending to speak and/or think for god are sinful. Hmmmm.

I believe strongly in the familiar saying "Judge NOT less Ye be judged."

I really don't judge Rosie, I just don't care for her delivery . And I have the option of not watching her, for which I am thankful.

Chuck, Well said. Only problem with it, is it could have been directed toward Rosie herself. There are many well spoken, opinionated women. They are able to do this without anger, without put downs, and grouping people together. It's funny that Rosie has a national audience, and tries very hard to hurt many people with her words. You have a few people on here who question her behavior, and we are being judgemental. Women have come a long way, but still have a ways to go, before all can speak their peace without a label. For the record, I did not mean that all people who admire Rosie, are short their french fries, only some.

Maybe I am short a few myself. I was all for her right up to the point where she insulted.... what millions of good people in the world.

it will be interesting to see how the ratings are for this show down the road. if our little message board is reflective of the rest of the viewing audience, i would say the ratings will be on the decline. i cant stand to watch it anymore. rosie dominates the show.

ok so now we have talked about Rosie. What about Racheal Ray. She is Oprah's new prodige. Remember Nate?
I loved her in her cooking shows and travel shows but unfortunately she just doesn't have the ability to have the 1 hour show. I find I am exhausted after watching her show. Too much Hype, Too loud and too much information
What do you think?

Chuck, the Jerry Springer show had big ratings years ago also. But only a certain class of people watched that show.

I've never seen the show but do feel strongly about her right to speak up on issues she feels are of importance. All points of view are needed if one hopes to make an educated decision about pressing issues.

Why is it okay for men like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'riley to be loud overbearing and rude, but it's not okay for Rosie?

Do we have a double standard here?

More food for thought! Hmmmmmmm!

Whooo You have never seen the show? Have you at least seen her statements? I do not deny her that right to free speech. I say, let her speak, but anyone who speaks, and many many people are hurt is wrong. Not surprising is she is picking on people who try to lead their lives with love. Free speech is something that people take for granted. It is often times abused.

Chuck, You had me fooled there for a minute. I thought the discussion was about Rosie. You mentioned Rush, and suddenly I realized it had nothing to do with Rosie, but left and right. You should have said that in the first place. You have made this political, and that is against the rules.

Take care of yourself.

If I were off, I wouldn't waste my time on her

I think the original mention of the pope, who has made very hurtful comments to millions of muslims started this train of thought.

That was the first political comment I.M.H.O.

Double standards continue...
