Geraldo Rivera complains: Obamacare is coming apart
Fox Morning News | 8/7/09

Posted on 08/07/2009 6:46:16 AM PDT by pabianice

This morning Geraldo Rivera had a small tantrum on the Fox Morning Show as he tried to defend Obamacare to the rest of the guests who weren't having any of it. I was surprised and disappointed to hear Rivera say that he believes in Obamacare and that opposition to it in town hall meetings is being organized by Obama-hating professional right-wing goons. He then raised eyebrows by offering that Obamacare is disintegrating before the Dems' eyes (despite the Libs' bussing-in violent union thugs, whom Obama describes as "grass roots supporters" of Obama).

My congressweasel, Richard Neal, had a closed door "town meeting" at UMass Medical Center, in which opponents were locked out so he could give a pep talk to Obama supporters. Neal is the prototypical Massachusetts Liberal.

The only reason geraldo believes in obamacare is because it covers illegals.

Why does this vaginal wuss get so much airtime? Oh well, his meltdowns are good for ratings, I guess. It is hilarious when the host self-destructs.

Jerry Rivers is a gringo-hating Hispano-Racist. Like another FReeper said....he likes Obamascare because it covers illegals

Have Geraldo and O’Reilly started drinking 0’s kool-aid?

I guess you just don't have any ideal of how big a supporter he is of illegal immigration and open borders then.

Once zero beat Hillary, Geraldo started drinking the obama kool aid by the gallon. O’Reilly has been hitting the jug lately too. All these rich guys digging socialism - I just don’t get it.

Jerrialdo, refuses to use the mass between his ears.
The surprised safe cracker, like he did this AM will soon be leading the “racist” banter that is starting to creep into the scene. When ever a lib is backed into a corner....scream and shout,dance about, Scream racism!

I didn't see this........but Geraldo, is live on the weekends.

The town halls are getting nasty, it will be interesting to see how he reports them, if he reports them.

I solved my Geraldo problem years ago. When he comes on, I change the channel or turn of the TV. Does wonders for my serenity. A Congressvermin who holds closed-door “town meetings” need to be reminded of that often next year when he’s up for re-election. Not that it will do much good in Massachusetts, but it’s worth a try.

The real only reason this airbag supports the deathcare bill is because he is an ultra left-wing fascist douchbag.

Geraldo knows that his illegal alien buddies will gain EVERYTHING with this bill, while the American taxpayer will lose income and their current healthcare plans.

Fox should give him MORE air time so he can showcase his asshat ideas.

I'm sick of Geraldo and his liberal antics.

Fox should fire him and hire Malkin or Palin in his place. NOW!

How does that surprise you? Whore-aldo has been, continues to be, and forever will be a liberal douchebag.

That's like being surprised to find out that Nancy Pelosi has had plastic surgery.

Actually his peak came when he did the news in Philly. Was all down the socialist/statist side after that.

Geraldo was at his peak during “The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vaults”.

Maybe he should be searching Obama's vault for the birth certificate and all his other missing records.

During the OK City bombing story, Obama dressed up in cammies so he could gain access to the triage.
He thought he was smart.
Actually, people were DYING and security and credentials were not all that important.

I know people in OKC that still hate this guy!

It’s not going to happen, IMHO, because FOX needs this weasel on to be fair and balanced. He makes my stomach turn and he is a racist!

Whore-aldo = early to work Fridays.

His Katrina reporting was journalistic malpractice.

After attending the John Dingell Town Hall last night and talking with many of the people who were there waiting in line, all I have to say to the left is, keep calling their anger “manufactured” and calling them shills for the Insurance companies. Its going over REAL well. LOL

I think Hairaldo used MD 20-20 as the mixer of choice in the beginning, BOr, on the other hand, went for High-Balls, I think.

Rivera’s rant didn’t seem to be that well-received. The whole thing turned into a shouting match, and despite the fact that F&F said he’d be back after the commercial break, Judge Napolitano appeared instead. No Geraldo. So either he walked off in a snit, or he was asked NOT to return after the break. I’m betting on the first option—he was furious that the others didn’t agree with him.

I told my wife the other day that Juan should just do it,you know you want to,come to the right side of the aisle. He has moments of clarity then he’ll go and say something really stupid. I know if he came over to our side that wouldn’t happen anymore.

I'm one of them. His actions during hurricane Katrina did nothing to help, either.
