Hasselbeck Gets Behind Romney, Warns America May Soon be Celebrating 'Dependence Day': VIDEO


The ladies of The View discuss the Romney '47 percent' video.

Says Hasselbeck: "I also think there's a general feeling that with more and more people becoming dependent on government that by next July we could perhaps be celebrating "Dependence Day" and not "Independence Day" in this nation."

  1. Michael, the wonderful thing are the many americans who WOULD benefit from Romney's tax ideas but who choose to vote Democrat.

    why? because they're compassionate enough to realize that they're doing just fine financially and that others in the country are the ones who need the tax breaks.

    i mean, heck, eva longoria (whom i previously had known nothing about) impressed me with her DNC speech. and she's right. the eva longoria that makes 6-figures in TV work isn't the one that needs to tax break - the eva longoria who flipped burgers at wendy's needs the tax break.

  2. David Letterman: "So what's the debt again? Ten trillion?
    President Urkel: "I don't remember. I mean the EXACT number."

    Oh, you will, moron. It's SIXTEEN TRILLION. But that would have been embarrassing to say last night, right?

  8. Marcus - These comments are about the View. Do you have anything to say about that? Otherwise you're off topic. The deficit - whatever it is - was created by Republicans - especially republican war mongering. Read the Wall Street Journal a Murdock publication and Republican mouthpiece - it noted on May 22, 2012, that spending under Obama was rising at the the slowest rate in 60 years so: as compared to Reagan the 2 Bushes and Clinton - the slowest in 60 years. So not only are you off topic you're also just off. Reagan and Bush the lesser are some of the biggest spenders in history. Romney looks like he would do the exact same - cause he likes the sound of war it seems. If you really care about spending then you would stick with Obama who has shown he's not a spendthrift or war monger.

  9. "Anyone else notice that Sherri Shepard started talking about Mexicans at the end for some reason?"

    Sam, Sherri was referencing Romney's claim in the same video that if Latinos vote en bloc for Democrats, the country will be doomed.

  10. From Jon Stewart:

    "It turns out that most of that 47% percent of people who don't pay taxes DO pay payroll taxes- they're working, but according to Mitt Romney not hard enough. Like a family of 5 making 50,000 dollars a year, the amount they would have had to pay to attend that luncheon to hear Mitt Romney sh*t on them in person."

  11. Yes..let's keep government out of our lives EXCEPT when it comes to who you love and want to marry!

  12. Well, I hear she gets to work early, has a sit-down with the producer who has all the republican talking points organized and planned. She is contractually obligated to present an "alternative viewpoint", no matter how ludicrous. She's a shill, without any sense of decency or integrity. So predictable how she will talk about any political topic. Poor girl.

  13. @ Michael: "
    btw, are there any people with money who are vocally supporting Romney that did NOT get their money from their rich parents or earned it by laying flat on their backs?"

    Maybe Michael Lucas???

  19. Well, Blonde idiot, Your child exemption, mortgage deduction, charitable deductions, medical deductions, business deductions, property tax and vehicle registration deduction, etc etc.

    She is not dependent on government. Plus he is all for discriminating against a segment(s) of society because of something his imaginary friend "believes" in. FAIL

  23. One of the very lucky "haves" disparaging those with less than she and her husband have, she and Romney have a lot in common, they don't have a clue about how 95% of Americans live.
