Can’t swear to it, but I’m pretty sure I’d have kicked his narrow ass over the railing. Slimeball. Time for Fox to follow the lead of PBS.

They even made a joke, I think that it was Bret Baer that joked, that Juan wasn’t kicked off because of his comment about Ann Romney, that they just wanted to make room for Peggy Noonan. I’m not so sure. Noonan works for MSNBC.

I think we know the reason liberal men like Williams lash out at women like Ann Romney. They’re beautiful, blonde, strong, calm, and unattainable; and as an emasculated liberal “male,” he could never hope to lead, inspire, or please such women as a husband.

Juan Williams- a hateful lib in sheep’s clothing. Why this POS is given a platform to spew his garbage is beyond me.

Noonan is a hack and Juan WIlliams is a joke. Seeing him going up against John Sununu is like watching a mother eating her young.

Yeah I’d like to hear the history of Juan’s wife and their relationship. How many wives has HE had and did she go out to work or what? He’s such a stupid guy, really.

If my feeble memory hasn’t failed me again, Juan Williams was born and raised in Panama.

BTW, it really seems to be very difficult for the foreign born, such as Obama and Juan to comprehend common sense, American values.

I cannot stand much of Peggy Noonan. She sounded like it was difficult for her to praise Ann Romney, but the words were definitely high praise. She just said that it could have been better because Ann Romney promised to tell us something about her husband that we didn’t already know, something about their struggles. I got the impression that Ann Romney is a very private person that doesn’t easily tell stories about her private life. She particularly doesn’t like to talk about her own struggles, and she would have had to do that to tell us private stories about her husband.

Oh, she did tell us something that we didn’t know, at least that I didn’t know, and it wasn’t about the ironing board. She told us that she was an Episcopalian when they got married and that he was a Mormon. That wasn’t news about him, though, was it? I did find myself relating to her, though, and I didn’t expect to.

She mentioned that she liked Mitt when they first met in high school because he made her laugh, and that is what I used to say about my husband. It was so long ago, that I had forgotten, sad to say. I will have to remind him.

I think Juan Williams saw the writing on the wall. He saw the huge advantage that Mitt has with his wife pulling for him on the campaign. Her connection with women will be unmatched. Juan was showing the characteristics of a man jealous that his President will be unable to rise up to the caliber of the Romney team. Juan was thinking that Zer0, like his name, has zero chance of reelection.

Juan reminded me of a man who just lost all of his chips on the crap table.

This explains a lot. What a self righteous hypocrite! Of course he can’t relate to Ann Romney...that would require moral character and decency.... none of which he possesses. Typical liberal.

Excellent point, Sarah! I was so stunned when I heard Juan call Ann Romney a "corporate wife", I never even thought about Moochelle. GREAT point.

Also, what about Moochelle's no-show $300,000+ a year patient-dumping job in Chicago as soon as BHO became state senator? How about that, Juan?

At least with Ann Romney, the things she owns she purchased with her OWN money..with Michelle Obama the extravagant vacations, the clothing, she purchased on OUR DIME..that is the difference..liberals LOVE spending other people’s money, never their own..oh and since Juan loves trashing Republicans who have wealth I wonder how much Juan is worth, someone should check his tax returns

I understand this point of view, that he’s “useless”, and the feeling of betrayal after having stood by him when he was being ‘released’ from npr. I am tempted to think this too. However... I think it’s important to have him and bob beckel too (much less so) on the network. They do provide a level of balance. Liberal positions are weak and indefensible. So in order to articulate those positions the spokesman for them ends up looking like a moron, especially when seated next to level headed articulate conservatives. We want america to know what these people really think. What we dont want is to be seen concealing and obfuscating opposing point of views like MSNBC Does. Like the way that they broke to commercial to conceal the minority speakers at the RNC Convention. Or the way that NPR did when they kicked williams out of their network. The contrast between the two thought processes is instructive in itself. We should also demonstrate the contrast between the reactions. Instead of seeking to silence the opposition like a liberal would do.

Let the Liberals speak... do not mute them lest we become like them.

Juan Williams is merely a monument to the Quota System of AFFIRMATIVE ACTION and is one of Roger Ailes lap boys for the sake of RATINGS. It is comical to see the other participants on FOX rebut and shred almost every point he tries to make.

Another joke is the Man from Area 51,Alan Colmes. Both of them cause an instant reaction to mute the sound on the TV!

Peggy Noonan became a clinton groupie before Bush2 ever joined the discussion. That was when her contribution started to look pretty lame.

Ann talked about real women and how they hold families, jobs, and country together. How they are caregivers for aging parents while meeting countless other every day demands. She raised women to the level we deserve- not reduce us to some dependent Julia whose priority in life is government paid birth control pills.

You couldn’t have summarized her speech better. There is real life, and there is Julia-life. And you could see that look of understanding in the faces and tears of all the women listening to Mrs. Romney’s powerful speech. It was riveting.

I never really had respect for her as I only started caring about politics since 2000 or so. By that time she was a RINO. I found it funny that people I work for that are Republican actually still thought of her as a conservative bellweather. Hopefully after the tea party and the rise of conservatism they now think differently of her. They read the Wall Street Journal and The Weekly Standard which to me seem more like a RINO mag more than true conservative fare even though it purports to be the conservative standard. maybe it once was but with RINO columists mixed in you have to weight it with a grain of salt.

I thought it was weird too. I figured Noonan is a RINO of the highest degree and well Romeny is an obvious RINO, so I figured she’d be a huge Romeny cheerleader. Is Noonan even left of Romeny?

I noticed that too as I was curious to see what MSNBC and CNN would be saying after the former campaign advisor for Obama who spoke and was making good points and MSNBC had some black liberal guy throwing him under the bus since he used to be a Democrat but was speaking in favor of Republicans and there was another guy on there saying he might as well be a Republican now, also throwing him under the bus. I forget the guys name but he did a great job at making Obama look like a miniscule zero that he is.

Imagine the frustration it must engender for a weak liberal man to see a magnificent conservative woman and know he can't have her or anyone as strong, proud, beautiful, holy, and free as she is, because he himself is so much less. He has to go cringing back to the nasty, emasculating, weak-minded liberal woman who demeans him further. Of course such people lash out in envy and bitterness. They may not know consciously why they're so infuriated by free, true-hearted conservative women, but they are indeed enraged.

The irony is he is married to Monica Crowley (conservative radio talk show host and sometimes fill in guest host for OReily as well as weekly guest on O Reily and occasional guest on Hannity. I only recently discovered this and it is kind of strange as they usually pit Monica Crowley against Alan Colmes on a weekly segment on O'Reily and she routinely makes him look like a limp wristed fool.

Your post nails it 100%. This is the same reason liberals (women especially) have that same degree of hatred, envy and jealousy over a woman like Sarah Palin. She is everything they are not and it pisses them off.
