Did you see the article by Cal Thomas about Tony? He wrote it last year, I believe, and it was posted here as a tribute to Tony and his beliefs.
heheheheheh....... Chris Wallace thanks Rush for being on the show, and Rush says (paraphrase) I’m glad to be on your show FINALLY! LOLOL.........
she was trying to be professional...nothing to do with feminism.
In a way actually I agree with her. Yes the AP article was a knock at Tony but really Rush was on there to remember Tony and his personal remembrance of him not to make political statements that he can do on his radio show.
It somehow left a bit of nasty taste in my mouth and I felt that yesterday was not the time to make those remarks.
Greta actually IMHO handled it well she just ignored what he said and possibly cut him short but his allotted time may have been up anyway but just seemed to be cut short because she ignored what he said.
OK. Let’s just call that a matter of opinion. Both of our opinions.
Today I have decided to rejoice in the celebration of his life and what it meant to all those he touched.
Let's face it Tony was not a maudlin type of guy. He was always upbeat and positive. He would be the last one to want to see us all devastated and not to learn from what he taught,how to be an excellent human being.
This is the link to Cal’s column about Tony.
I mute both as soon as they open their mouth.
Bret Bair(sp), Martha Radditz, and Mike Allen from the Politico on the FNS panel talking about how forceful Tony was in his position. He was a “happy warrior” with long press briefings.
Raddatz talks about how smart Tony was and how good he was on TV. They all agree about Tony’s optimism.
Yeah Rush was talking about the AP article.
He probably saw our complaints about it in thread yesterday.
I knew Rush lurked, but I don’t know his FReeper name, like I did with Tony, and Mark Levin.
Rush made the same comments about the AP during the morning Fox broadcasts. Rush didn’t bring it up for political debate but to defend his friend.
I always remember a trailer for the Apprentice when Martha Stuart was hosting it and a woman said she felt so embarrassed she could cry and Martha's retort to her was “women in business do not cry”.
There is unfortunately still a double standard here and I am certainly not a feminist in any shape or form.
I really like Bret Bauer.
He fills in for Brit sometimes and does a good job.
Bret told a story about how his son had heart surgery.
And when Bret came back to work Tony welcomed him to the press briefing and everyone clapped.
Great post, rodguy. Me too.
Darn, I thought Brit was hosting.
I know many on FR do not care much for Greta but personally I often enjoy her show unless she gets obsessed on some gory murder.
