  • Raven Symone

    I watched the View today because Dancing With The Stars was on. The last time I watched, Ramone thought the vice president could stay on the job longer , or something.... My point - nonsense. Today I watched her looking very silly discussing politics appeared like she memorized some left wing panned answer ,definitely not her real opinion. I tape all the news channels every day,[dem,rep, and liberal, you have to to form an opinion]watch all the Sunday shows, I have for years. I would no more have the guts to go on national tv and talk up a big one like that kid does, she sounds like an idiot- . Like a few others on that show ,on ocassion . I don't know when it became cute being stupid again, and it saddens me. Your executives couldn't find someone that has educated themselves in this day and age. I'm ashamed to admit I'm a Democrat anymore. Even Bill Maher has enough sense to admit his opinion on the muslins .That shouldn't even be a left or ring thing.. That was no offense to Bill Maher. I'VE never missed one of his shows, but he got to far to the left after he donated 1 million to Obama, then got involved with Airianna Huffington and a few extreme left Hollywood flakes ,ruined his you don't watch and respect both parties opinions and learn what common sense is, you have no business on a show telling people not not worry... Remember the day Whoppi and Joy walked off the show like two penchalent Didn't you feel embarrassed for women [the day Bill O'Reilly was on]. Show some responsibility to the public and have some common sense.moreless
  • Sheeples: Sheep + People = Sheeples

    Woopi's misinformation on Obama keeping us safe from terrorist attacks was an outright deception. We know she is well aware of the Boston Marathon bombers, the two Muslim refugee brothers who set off the bomb near the finish line a couple of years ago. I am certain she heard about the Muslim Fort Hood Psychiatrist/Shooter/Murderer who acted on Jihad. Treating people as sheep who are being herded and verbalizing misinformation is often offered as truth on The View which is offensive to those of us who are well informed in America. Joy has her own personal liberal agenda which is so obvious even a blind person could see through it. All in all, I'd say it is a show for those who are bored and do not know current events. I warn, if you get your current event information, history, or political events information from this show you will be deceived. If you are watching for entertainment value, you too will be cheated. Good luck and I personally recommend finding a show that does not treat viewers as Sheeples, those that are uninformed and will believe anything said, even a blatant lie.moreless
  • Leave the View along!!!!! Haters !!!!!!!

    I love the View. I have been retired for a little over a year. I love the View and the cast. Whoopi is the best, Raven has that flair, Joy is the jokester, and the other two ladies they don't need. Bring Sherry back to complete an awesome cast. I love the hot topics; they're great. Just take a little time and enjoy the view instead of bashing so much.
  • More THoughts

    I turned on the View today for the first time in a long time. I lasted about 3 minutes before turning it off. What is wrong with ABC that they have to have this garbage on? I would rather watch an Infomercial than the View. They really went to the bottom of the barrel to find co-hosts. Whoopie is loud and if someone doesn't agree with her, she makes faces and talks over them until they stop talking. Candace has no right being any place but home. No one needs to hear her religious believes constantly. Raven is just young and needs to learn off screen before being put on screen. Joy is passed her prime and needs to retire. She is loud and obnoxious. Paula should stick to reading the news. And the other "lady" I have no clue who she is or why she is there. PLEASE CANCEL THIS SHOW.moreless
  • show still bad and they rehired joy

    Several years ago i enjoyed the show while Elisabeth H , Meredith V. and Nicolle W were there. But Joy comes on with her filthy mouth and attitude we quit watching and change to a whole other channel now she is back on the show not worth wasting my time as with other ladies. Barbara your show is no longer.... yes you had class and its ashamed your dynasty has fallen. and they think Obama can do no harm please really?moreless
