O’Donnell tells Piers Where to Stick it
DEConservative Blog ^ | 8/17/2011 | DEConservative

Posted on 08/17/2011 8:17:45 PM PDT by DEConservative

No doubt the News Journal “reporters” are hammering away at their keyboards after Christine O’Donnell’s appearance on Piers Morgan’s CNN show. O’Donnell was on to promote her book and the interview started out fairly well. She was amiable and Piers was nice enough but throughout the interview, Morgan continued to turn the topics away from the subject matter of the book, which is a return to our founding principles and an embrace of fiscal responsibility, limited government and a breakup of the crony capitalist system. Now, CNN’s website only shows the last few minutes of the exchange but for those of us who watched the show, Piers went on and on throughout the interview about witches, masturbation and gay marriage which were simply not the topics he brought her on to discuss. Here’s the end of what was at least 15-18 mins of O’Donnell tying to redirect Piers who was acting like a lovesick teenager fresh into puberty.

Gotta be honest here - never been THAT impressed with Christine. I did give to her campaign in hopes she would take that seat, but she’s always been something of a lightweight. Her inability to handle this gracefully demonstrates that.

She never told him to "stick it" and the video (I saw) did not show her walking off the set. Though it might be presumed she was preparing to do that, she still was speaking to Morgan up to the end of the video.

She came across as vapid and duplicitous. She states that her purpose for being there was to discuss her book, she admits that in this book can be found her opinion on gay marriage, yet when asked about gay marriage she gets 'offended'.

And to think I sent this twit $$$

Well that's an understatement. I never understood such timidity with some FReepers being scared to tell the truth as you have. Idealogy isn't enough. We need serious candidates not bimbos.

No she didn’t. If you think that was gracefully handled then you are just being an apologist for a conservative. Be realistic. She didn’t even cut the interview off gracefully. It was awkward and downright silly.

Here you have a woman whose 15 minutes of fame are all but up. She didn’t win her seat and she’s not consequential enough for her book to have any real meaning. Despite that, she’s given a stage to spout sound conservative principles. Rather than just answer the questions and quickly move the subject back onto topics she wants to discuss, she plays a stupid game.

You want people to listen? Give answers people want to hear.

Piers asked, “Do you support gay marriage?”

Why not just say, “No, I don’t.”

“So you’d restore don’t ask, don’t tell?”

“Yep. I’m not out to convert homosexuals or people who sympathize with their agenda - like yourself - right now. Honestly, they’re never likely to listen to a sound conservative opinion on fiscal responsibility anyway. I’m out to make folks who aren’t one issue voters aware of the things we can do to make this country fiscally sound... blah blah blah.”

Most politicians like Christine are cowards. They refuse to just say what they believe. And why? She might offend the 2-3% gays out there? Or the moonbats that sympathize wholeheartedly with their agenda?

Who cares. She blew it. Good luck getting another national platform on which to discuss sound conservative ideas, Christine. You may get one or two, but that’s about it.

OUTSTANDING.

Go Christine. Losing one’s temper with blatantly biased liberal dweebs, is a win-win situation.

We need more conservatives getting mad with liberal journalists.

Make their bias the issue. Set the agenda.

Nor you my FRiend. But if I'm not mistaken I believe He sent his Son. My Christian faith is not a "religion of the book." Christianity is the religion of the "Word" of God, a word which is not a written and mute word, but the Word which is incarnate and living.

What's the deal with the hate towards O'Donnell on this thread? A conservative FINALLY refuses to be victimized and marginalized during a bullshit ambush interview, and you all trash her for it.

This reminds me of the "submission" question to Bachmann during the recent debate. Liberals NEVER get this kind of treatment during interviews or debates. It's well past time conservatives stop tolerating this crap. Kudos to O'Donnell.

Why conservatives go on these commie networks in the first place is beyond my comprehension. What did she expect?

She probably thought she'd be let off easy because she's cute and cuddly...as in "Gidget Does CNN".

Besides, she gave this effete, pathetic, socialist Brit more free publicity than his lame show deserves.

Sheesh, we DO have dummies on our side, too. All this calamity just to shill her book.

Not an idiot. She's more knowledgeable than most pundits. Almost in the same class as Coulter.

But when the media is bent on exaggerating only some of the things you've said and ridiculing you endlessly you have to take them on, as Christine did. As Bachmann, Palin allways do.

Hope Christine runs again. Piers is a smuck and a mugger from England.

Why? Did you enjoy watching her lose in embarrassing, yet entirely predictable fashion? If she ran again, at least state wide in Delaware, she'd probably lose by more than the 17 points she lost by last time around.

Piers is a smuck and a mugger from England.

Entirely true, Piers is a dirt bag. O'Donnell continued her track record of terrible judgement by appearing on his show in the first place. Her frequent guest appearances on Bill Maher's disgusting left wing show is what helped doom her last campaign, you'd think she'd have learned something by now. Apparently not.

Christine did well. She more or less tossed him aside as irrelevant by speaking to and looking towards the person she was talking with in her earphone. I loved it. She just kind of kicked him to the curb where he belongs... or I should say to the gutter. Don’t like him andnever have. He said he thought he was charming? Charming? He’s obnoxious and annoying. Thinks more of himself than he ought to. What a waste.

I most certainly did. I was actually very impressed with her when she debated or gave an issue-oriented dialogue.
The 'I'm not a witch' ad was an eye roller, but not nearly as much as the fact that a million $ was left in her campaign chest. Interesting, to state the least.

Now, on to you.
You object to my "vulgar name calling" (truth, at times, isn't pretty), then go on to label me a "jerk". I will not assume that you recognize the inconsistency here.
I could easily prove, via the various web sites that list campaign donations, that I did donate to C. O'Donnell the amount of $200.00, but that would require giving you my real name and I'm not comfortable with that as you exhibit obvious signs of ignorance and that is a common trait amongst people who break laws.

So, ncalburt, c'est la vie.

O`Donnell is a conservative—that`s nice, but it`s not the last word. There are millions of conservatives. We need intelligent, accomplished and MATURE adult conservatives. We have enough childish politicians, like Obama. O`Donnell is on the right, but so are plenty of other people who shouldn`t be elected for the simple reason that they are not serious adults.

Christine looked ridiculous! What is her problem? If you don’t want to answer questions, don’t give an interview. Why doesn’t she just say what she thinks? Is she afraid that gays won’t buy her book? They are not going to buy her book anyway. I hate it when “conservatives” chicken out when speaking out about social issues. The left never does. And why would anyone buy it? So they can read about her dreadful campaign?

Go away, Christine.

O’Donnell made a fool of herself. Plain and simple. Did Piers have an agenda? Yes, of course. But she does discuss gay marriage in her book, which she was promoting on his show. If she doesn’t want to discuss certain parts of her book, she should not have written her views on those topics in the first place.
People will not take her seriously if she is going to pull the old, “you ask me hardball questions, and I am going to walk” routine.
I’ll give Bachmann credit. When she was asked about the “submissive” comment, she hit it head on. You don’t have to like her answer but she did answer it.
Keep running away O’Donnell...

Christine handled it well, I thought. She came on to talk about restoring Constitutional America. That was the point of the book. Piers wanted to use the interview as a way of bashing her for views on homosexuals rather than focus on the heart of the book. Christine refused to cooperate with that.

Well, Christine went on Maher's show and many other shows by her lonesome as 'thee' conservative. She took the spear for her efforts. On the shows I actually watched, many on Youtube, IMO she did quite well in dealing with screwed up comics and liberals.

How people can be dubbed by the MSM is amazing. It's sad and especially so when they're 'conservatives. For some Alinskys' rules works every time.

She beat Castle by her own shear effort and could have beaten 'what's his name' for senator, if not for the moderate to liberal side of our Washington elites.

Good response to the guy’s tagline. Without the Bible we’d just have a bunch of opinions, it’d be hard to even know God loved the world, and we would not know how to get out of paying for our own sin. Job wished his enemy would have written a book, so he’d know what his enemy thought. I’m thankful God sent us a book.
