My guess is that Barron will never be invited back, but that you will.

Unfortunately Barron was on H&C a couple of times before. I guess they couldn't find anybody interesting to defend Jackson so they had to use him. Except for a couple of minor changes, they could have just ran the tape of one of his last visits and it would have been exactly the same, spin to no end. If it weren't for liberal talking points, Barron would have had nothing to say during the show.

mhking did great and I'm glad he's here with us.

"I know that he started shreiking in my ear when my cage didn't get too rattled..."

The majority of people who watched it won't remember what was said, but they will remember the impressions made by the speakers. Dignity and decorum trump classless displays like his every time.

We don't have cable, so I didn't get to see it, but I can tell you from what has been posted here that my reaction would have been similar to Mitchell's. I just want that type to "shut up" and let someone talk who has some sense.

p.s. Thanks for being there. Sounds like you may bring your " very liberal" dad around before it's over and done. :-)

I had no idea you were a Freeper, but I watched a little of that segment, and was thinking how intelligent you sounded, and how belligerent and nasty that Barrone was. Good for you.

I'm a FNC junkie...........and apologize for missing your appearance. Had my son and daughter in law over last night; was spending time with them and just didn't catch the show. I have NO doubt you acquitted yourself with honor and dignity. Kudos.

Michael, I watched your appearance last night, and made my fiance watch as well. I thought you may be interested in a non-partisan opinion of the segment - my fiance's. She, before we started dating 2 years ago, was, as to be expected, a non-political, liberal leaning woman. All she knew was what her friends, family, and liberal press told her. As we began our courting, I've slowly exposed her to the other side of the coin. Is she a conservative yet? No, but getting there.

To the point: she found you completely logical, likeable, and confident. Not only was your input and presentation enough to easily "win" the debate, but the conduct of the other seditious "gentleman" flat out repulsed her. It wasn't difficult explaining to her that that is how almost all liberals "debate". As for me, you did fantastically (when I could hear you over that pathetic excuse for an "official"). Even Hannity had a hard time talking with that putz. Thanks for your efforts Michael. I am confident you have alot more limelight in your future. Make the most of it!

P.S. It must be very disconcerting engaging in a conversation an empty room with a camera lens!

I didn't get a chance to find out - he and I didn't get to talk at all.

Ah, that's too bad.

I re-checked out your blog. I remember reading your entry about being an "idiot son". Reading your more recent entries, I couldn't help but think about a friend (also named Michael) who was down-sized about two years ago. He started his own business, web designing, and now can't believe he didn't do it sooner. I was touched, too, by your teenaged daughters remarks about going to church. Your life certainly has had a lot of changes recently. Methinks I see the Hand of God.

mhking --- Michael King -----Of course!! ({{{{batting head}}}}}

Barron jumped right out trying to get the offense, but all he did was expose himself for the loudmouth he is. You were cool and collected.

The trouble with having someone on live in the studio, is that you can't shut off their mike. I wish they would have you back with Barron --- with YOU in the studio.

There's a few lefty females who mouth away. They aren't helping themselves. (good!!!)

I saw it and your wife and dad are right. You looked good. I really dislike these kinds of programs where people are constantly interrupting and talking over one another. H & C did a poor job managing the segment with the obnoxious Barron getting away with colassal rudeness.

"I thought he sensed my unease, but everyone I've spoken to said that I was pretty cool throughout the whole thing. They said that if anything, Barron was unhinged by my not getting upset and flying off the handle."

I observed no unease on your part. You are right in your suggestion that Barron was flustered by his inability to push your buttons. I would love to see you become one of FNC's go-to guys. As common-tater said in a previous post "You made the sale."

"The black community and the country as a whole needs more people like you and Walter Williams speaking out against these loonies".

There are multitudes out here. Unfortunately they get the same treatment from the liberal press that mhking got last night..They shut down and categorize people to keep them down. They have stolen many peoples voice and spoken their agenda and lies as if it were the way and the truth. And, that is the world of the liberal elite media.

You did very well.

IMHO, NYC Councilman Charles Barron is a jerk, and typical democrat that speaks incoherently and just spouts the party line. He wouldn't listen to anything you said because everything you said made sense..... Alan Colmes isn't much better, IMHO. He tried to cut you off every time he asked you a question. I can't figure out how Hannity sits there and listens to Colmes BS... It must simply pay well.....

You were awesome. Fox should hire you -- you're cool under fire and light-years more classy than some other Fox 'consultants' -- e.g. Alphonse "I'm so over" D'Amato or Gerry "Shrieking" Ferraro.

Did anyone see Laura Ingraham yesterday on Hannity and colmes yesterday She was debating this Democratic strategist.
Whenever this Democratic strategist was talking, they would show Laura and she was making the funniest facial expressions. I couldn't stop laughing. I think Laura must have a long day or something.

It's good to be King! (for the segment, anyway)

Congrats on a fine job despite the trying circumstances.

Well done, Michael. This kind of sandbagging is common in the media -- you will be more prepared for it the next time.

Michael, you're "adopted" grandma is also busting her buttons here. You were awesome. I think any of us, when put into that type of situation, are prone to agonize other "I should have said" self flagilation. You did a wonderful job and barron looked like the screaming idiot. You were the good guy. Everyone could see that. God bless you, and I hope they put you on again and let you talk, because you do speak for so many.

Sean should get on Leo Terrell. I haven't seen him on in like 6 months. He is the funniest guy . He never thinks a black is guilty of anything.
