Failed Dem. candidate and Iraq Vet Paul Hackett blows a gasket on O'Reilly Factor
FoxNews Channel ^ | Aug. 30th, 2006 | DTogo

Posted on 08/30/2006 5:35:36 PM PDT by DTogo

John Kasich is filling in for O'Reilly and has Dan Senor in studio and former marine, Iraq War vet, and failed Democratic candidate Paul Hackett on via satellite. After asking Dan about pulling out early from Iraq ("redeployment" in Dem-speak), and listening to Dan's very benign opinion, John goes to Hackett who immediately launches into an unprovoked name-calling/smearing of Dan Senor!

This guy wanted to be a Congressman? Unbeleivable!

Hackett smears Dan's service in the Coalition Provisional Authority, says Dan never served in the military nor was schooled in warfare, makes some schoolyard remark of Dan as a Nazi official (forget the exact term).

Watch the re-broadcast later. Unbelievable.

Didn't the RATS kick Hacket out of the election, or pull all his money out or something? I can't remember but I think Reid and Shumer made him go cause.......... why insanity? Anybody remember?......

(spell check police)

Never liked Hackett, and new he was a fraud. He reminded me of Neidermeyer(?) from Animal House.

Typical liberal response. When someone gets the best of you, act like an ass and go into a tirade of profanity and gibberish.

I saw it, too. Hackett was UGLY and Kasich was applying the 'shouldn't be name calling' remark to both guests. Kasich didn't handle it well, in my opinion.

Senor wasn't sure to whom Hackett was referring at first and was remarkably composed under the circumstances.

Stunning performance by Hackett.

Thanks for the post.

I was watching but turned it off only a minute into it.

Really hard to take Kasich's histrionic impersonation of O'Reilly's histronics.

Hackett is a complete fool and I have no wish to listen to anything he has to say.

Dan Senor is a good guy ... I will try to steel myself to watch the rerun later, just to see Hackett shame himself with his schoolyard taunts.

Such a typical Dem.

Demos in Ohio forced Hackett out of Senate race in favor of Sherrod Brown.

Both are moonbats, but Brown can at least present a smooth and false front.

I think Hackett slipped in something like an "Unterfuhrer" in
his ad hominem on Senor.

Hackett delivered a pretty good Democratic Howard-Dean-style meltdown.

I went ballistic and already emailed Kasich telling him he runs a lousy excuse for the Factor and that Hackett is a know-nothing. Senor was *unbelievably* composed, I would have blown a gasket at Hackett's pompous a**. The guy thinks because he had a look at the war up close and personal, and most of the rest of us haven't, we have no right to have an opinion.

Since Brown is at least able to put on a facade, it becomes more clear why Hackett got pushed out. I believe Hackett is a lawyer. Clients, beware.

Has anyone else gotten the impression that the wackies on the left are showing themselves not being ready for primetime on a daily basis?

I wonder if there is a D internal polling that is telling them some very bad things? That would explain the crumbling.

"Kasich didn't handle it well, in my opinion."



No, he didn't. In fact, the more I listen to Kasich, the more I'm disappoined with him. Even before the debate began, Kasich was taking issue with those Republicans who were calling the Democrats appeasers...which they clearly are.

Hackett supposedly represents (as an attorney) some of the Marines accused in the Haditha "massacre". Lucky for them.

(It would not surprise me if he is keeping Murtha posted on the state of the evidence.)

He *did* call him an unterfuhrer - you heard correctly. He also accused Senor of being responsible for "wasting" $9,000,000,000. Like he spent it personally, or even had control of the wasted funds.

Indeed, Kasich should have directed the "no name-calling" statement to Hackett. And then Kasich says "I'm no fan of the war, either" in passing... Lame.

The insult (typical for a democrat, BTW) was that Dan was some sort of Fuhrer wannabe. Hackett was not only a slug on glass, he was rude and insulting ... sadly, the guest host let the slug democrat spew on and on and on. Dan Senor may never have served in the military but he was doing the best he could under the circumstances in Iraq. I'm beginning to wonder if Moose limbs can actually be civilized to the point of self governance (or if democraps can actually comprehend the threat of these primitive bastards), and that's certainly not Dan's fault or Bushes fault for wanting to believe mooselimbs could be civilized if given the chance.

Kasich was EXTREMELY ineffectual, i think he was flustered and taken aback by the viciousness of the ad hominem attack, which was entirely unprovoked! they should have cut that jack@$$ Hackett's mic off when he started that crap. Say what you want about Bill, but i think he would have cut the mic and called Hackett out on that stuff.

I missed Hackett, but tuned in in time to hear Kasich do an abysmal job in a discussion on Plame/Wilson/Armitage. He was so clueless and groveling so much to that Rat womans that I changed the channel.

And to think Kasich thought he had what it takes to be president! HA!

Hackett called him Herr Senor, Unterfuhrer and right after he accused Dan of losing $9 Billion in US Tax Dollars, he motioned to himself and made a reference to Hitler .

I could not hear it over John and Dan trying to respond at the same time, but I tried to Tivo back a couple of times and there is definitely the mention of Hitler.

Hackett was an embarassment to every American who ever served in a uniform. Childish, rude, mean-spirited and ignorant are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind.

That being said, I hoep he gets on TV alot! Best thing that can happen for any conservative opponent is to be on the other side of this wacko.

''he's a nut job''..........Yeah I'm starting to remember a bit of it. The RATS loved the guy cause they figured (like Lurch) he was in the military ,so that looked good for them, and nobody would dare attack the guy, later when they discovered he had diarea of the mouth( he called the president an sob) used other profanities etc., they dumped him.......based on tonight's performance it seems the RATS were right about him.............

Maybe it was the lighting, but Hackett looked like he hadn't shaved in a couple of days.

Grubby looking, rude and insulting to Senor. Both Kasich and Senor were taken aback by Hackett's Larry-O'Donnell-act.

I agree. What I can't stand most about Kasich is that in his attempts to appear "fair and balanced" he insinuates a moral equivalance that isn't even comparable. The idea that he would chastize Republicans for finally fighting back--and pointing out the danger of appeasement, while likening it to the vitriol we've heard from Democrats over the years, is a joke. The debate and rhetoric from Hackett tonight more than made that evident.
