    The reprehensible Rosie O’Donnell continued her rantings about the interrogation of terrorist suspects by the CIA on Thursday’s “The View,” but in-house conservative Nicole Wallace was on hand to put O’Donnell in her place. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Wallace, who was director of media affairs in the Bush White House, was at work on 9/11 and vividly recalled fleeing the office after the attacks and calling her parents. She said the intelligence officers who did the interrogations necessary to prevent another attack had her gratitude. “I don’t think anyone is defending brutal tactics. That’s why they don’t happen anymore. But I have never been...

    While discussing The View on Tuesday's Wendy Williams Show, Joy Behar called Nicolle Wallace “a day at the beach” in comparison to her predecessor Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck, who has since moved on to a cozy job with Fox News Channel, was known for her conservative opinions, which often resulted in heated debates between her and the show’s other hosts. Wallace, who has been labeled a conservative, peculiarly finds herself in the favorable opinion of Behar: "I like that little Republican over there. Nicole [Wallace]," Behar said of The View's newest co-host. "You know, I have dealt with Elisabeth Hasselbeck and...

    On Thursday, Nicolle Wallace, who has worked for former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and President George W. Bush, said she hoped that Jeb Bush "doubles down" on his "act of love" comments regarding illegal immigration. Appearing on Rachel Maddow's show on MSNBC after President Barack Obama's executive amnesty announcement, the Republican sellout said that she hoped more Republicans understand that the "act of illegal immigration, while illegal, is motivated by love." She said "until we get our heads around why people get here" Republicans will supposedly be doomed. Wallace, who was also a McCain campaign hack who became a co-host...

    Breitbart's Big Hollywood ^ | September 27, 2014 | Tony Lee
    Sarah Palin is known for having the backs of conservatives. Nicolle Wallace is not. Wallace, who has elevated her profile in the liberal press and most likely got her co-hosting job on the The View solely because she stabbed Palin and other conservatives in the back to please the media elite, proved it again this week while gossiping about a story in which the Palin family allegedly brawled to defend their eldest son, who was reportedly attacked at a party in Alaska. According to Newsbusters, Wallace said on Monday's The View, "I mean, sometimes with the Palins, it's exactly what...

    On Tuesday morning, The View’s “conservative” co-host Nicolle Wallace gave a ringing endorsement for Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.) should he decide to run for president in 2016. Unfortunately for the New Jersey governor, her reasons for supporting him probably won’t help him win over many Republican primary voters. During a discussion about Chris Christie’s 2016 prospects, Wallace eagerly threw her hat in for the New Jersey Republican and proclaimed that “his politics are an interesting and progressive and modern swath of the country and I’d like to see him in.” (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The segment began with a discussion of Governor Christie’s weight...

    For a long time before I became a reporter, I never paid attention to bylines — the announcement of who wrote a given article. That all changed for me one day when I was sitting at Jimmy T’s Diner in Washington, D.C., reading a hate-filled “fashion” column that was nothing more than the projection of angry liberal political views. It was so awful that I wanted to know who wrote it. The author, Robin Givhan, of course went on to win a Pulitzer. I’m part of a profession that rewards liberal political views above most all else.

    An overhauled The View kicked off this morning with no fireworks, but, of course, it’s only Day 1. The show opened glutinously, with The New Ladies Of The View kissing the rings of Barbara Walters, sitting on a throne, who ordered them to “go out there and let them see why we have the best show in daytime TV.” (Babs stuck around for the rest of the show, looking sort of third wheel-ish, according to a source.) Whoopi Goldberg assumed her long-held position of air traffic controller, settling that question for now as to whether she or Rosie O’Donnell would...

    According to speculation by the Daily Mail on Friday, Nicolle Wallace, a liberal Republican who worked on John McCain's 2008 campaign and famously feuded with Sarah Palin, has been selected to fill the "conservative" seat on ABC's The View. The rumor comes a day after the producer of the left-wing Rachel Maddow Show was hired to run the ABC chat show. Daily Mail writer Topper Toussaint claimed, "Commentator S.E. Cupp was also considered, but clashed with Rosie [O'Donnell]." He added, "'Rosie told her that her approach was just like Elisabeth Hasselbeck, which did not sit well,' according to the show...

    The Politico ^ | May 13, 2014 | Dylan Byers
    In the wake of the 2012 presidential election, Fox News moved quickly to purge itself of its most troubled assets: Dick Morris, unquestionably the worst pundit of the cycle, was pushed out. Sarah Palin, a star fast fading, "parted ways" with the network. Karl Rove, who famously refused to concede Ohio to Obama even after Fox News called it for him, was temporarily sidelined. Rove came back, of course. A top Republican strategist with major political influence, he was too valuable to give up. But now, as the next presidential election cycle gets under way, Rove has once again found...

    In an appearance on MCNBC’s Morning Joe, Nicole Wallace (former George W.

Wallace then warned Republicans to stop being about nothing but criticism, “So I think the peril in looking at these numbers for President Obama is to continue down the path of railing against his administration’s policies.” (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The Republican Party’s approval ratings are at an...

    The Atlantic Wire ^ | August 20, 2013 | Elspeth Reeve
    When Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol suggested on Sunday that Sarah Palin restart her political career by running for Senate, people noticed, because more than anyone else —more than John McCain, the candidate who picked her as his running mate, more than Steve Schmidt, the adviser who urged McCain to do it — Kristol is credited with launching Palin's career. On Tuesday, Kristol made it clear he does not want all that credit (or blame). On MSNBC's Morning Joe, Nicolle Wallace, who was Palin's aide during the 2008 campaign, asked Kristol, "How did you feel as sort of being branded...

    On Fox News Sunday this morning, evangelical leader Gary Bauer and Republican strategist Nicole Wallace went head-to-head over the upcoming Supreme Court hearings on overturning Proposition 8, California’s controversial law banning same-sex marriages within the state. “You don’t advance limited government by being an anti-democratic movement that is attempting to take this issue away from the American people,” Bauer said of Wallace and other conservatives who submitted an amicus brief to the court. “What the brief is asking for and what the groups waiting outside the Supreme Court are asking for, is for unelected judges to deny the people of...

Rove said that he thinks some Supreme Court Justices have expressed sentiments...

    MSNBC's Morning Joe ^ | March 4, 2013 | Drew Katchen
    Last Thursday, in a sign that the GOP is recalibrating its image after 2012, 100 prominent Republicans (many of whom are no longer serving in office) signed a friend-of-the-court brief seeking to overturn California’s Proposition 8, which effectively banned same-sex marriage in the state shortly after it became legal. The brief states the opinion that marriage is a constitutional right for gay couples—a position that goes beyond even President Obama’s stance on marriage equality. One of the signers, former communications chief for George W. Bush and senior advisor for the McCain–Palin campaign Nicolle Wallace, joined Morning Joe Monday morning to...

    Yahoo! News Contributor Network ^ | February 22, 2012 | Mark Whittington
    Thanks to some remarkable reporting from Big Hollywood, it has become increasingly clear the upcoming HBO movie "Game Change" is less a political melodrama than an all-out attempt to destroy the person and reputation of Sarah Palin. The movie is based on a poorly researched book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, and it was criticized at the time of its publication by Howard Kurtz, then a media reporter for the Washington Post, and the New York Times for its overreliance on unsourced "deep background" interviews that were difficult to verify. Two of those sources have been revealed, according to...

    I have been thinking about the past week and trying to connect dots and making sense of the Palin situation. Two stories that broke the night before she said she wasn't going to run really stick in my mind. Nicole Wallace told TIME that Sarah Palin was the inspiration for a female VP candidate who was crazy and mentally ill. Roger Ailes came out and said that the only reason he hired Palin is because she is hot and got ratings. Both stories were equally disgusting. My question to all of my good FReinds out there is this. Do you...
  • McCain Campaign Considered Not Letting Palin Be Sworn In if They Won (McCain stabs Palin)

    In 2008, John McCain's campaign team discussed whether they should let Sarah Palin be sworn in as vice-president if they were to win the election, according to campaign staffer Nicolle Wallace. "There certainly were discussions -- not for long because of the arc the campaign took -- but certainly there were discussions about whether, if they were to win, it would be appropriate for her to be sworn in," Wallace tells Time's Claire Suddath. In her new novel, It's Classified, Wallace has a character -- a mentally ill female vice-president -- which she says is based on her experience working...

    "The idea of a mentally ill vice president who suffers in complete isolation was obviously sparked by the behaviors I witnessed by Sarah Palin," Wallace tells Time. "What if somebody who was ill-equipped for the office were to ascend to the presidency or vice presidency? What would they do? How long would it take for people to figure it out? I became consumed by this question." It's not surprising that Wallace would choose a public forum to portray Palin in such a negative light. Wallace's name was near the center of post-campaign speculation about unhappiness with Palin within the McCain...

He'd often get back to them before I'd get back to them. She's like that. She's very hands on. Reminds me of my time working for Jeb Bush. She doesn't like a lot of bureaucracy. She gets on her email and deals directly with press and the staff and it's very, very impressive. Very appealing. She works harder than anyone I’ve known in politics. She’ll go until one or two in the...

It looks, now, as if it this brouhaha amounts to a cat fight with Nicole Wallace, the sometime George Bush staffer who was put in charge of Palin for the McCain campaign. Wallace has a history of being a vicious political infighter, and it appears certain Palin was ill-served by McCain's decision to install Wallace as Palin's de facto campaign chief of staff - and not merely b/c Wallace is a vicious political knife-fighter,...

    Even as John McCain and Sarah Palin scramble to close the gap in the final days of the 2008 election, stirrings of a Palin insurgency are complicating the campaign's already-tense internal dynamics. Four Republicans close to Palin said she has decided increasingly to disregard the advice of the former Bush aides tasked to handle her, creating occasionally tense situations as she travels the country with them. Those Palin supporters, inside the campaign and out, said Palin blames her handlers for a botched rollout and a tarnished public image — even as others in McCain's camp blame the pick of the...

    John McCain campaign senior strategist Nicole Wallace conceded Wednesday that the campaign “lost the spin war” by allowing Barack Obama’s campaign to brand the Arizona senator as a dirty campaigner. “The truth is they play dirty politics, and maybe we haven't been quick enough. Maybe we don't have enough friends in the media to carry the message,” Wallace said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show. “We certainly lost the spin war about his fighting a more negative campaign. The truth is that Barack Obama has spent more money on negative attack ads against John McCain than any politician, Democrat or Republican,...
