Whoopi’s “Network” Moment

Michelle Malkin embeds the clip below from that bastion of sober thought and political analysis, The View, featuring the ladies (and I use the term loosely, except, of course, for the lovely Mrs. Hasselbeck) kvetching about bumper stickers, taxes, Obama etc.

Michelle focuses on Whoopi Goldberg going off on “taxes on the wealthy,” and fine, it’s a little refreshing, but I really couldn’t care less what she says. She’s a past-her-prime bad actor. Who cares. My points here are two:

1) God bless Elizabeth Hasselbeck. I don’t know how much she gets paid to sit there with these three self-righteous loudmouths, but it ain’t enough.

2) At about the 2:00 mark, Joy Behar neatly sums up everything that conservatives dislike about Obama, liberalism and the direction our country is heading. She says in defense of Obama: “Already everybody wants (Obama) to solve every problem in the world.” Hasselbeck rightly takes her to task by bringing up the fact that Obama basically promised to do so during the election, but she misses the chance to make a very easy point about the difference between conservatives and liberals, one that we need to be driving home every chance we get.

No, Mr. President, we don’t expect you or the government to solve every problem. We can do that just fine on our own. To borrow from a greater man than I: We just want you to stop making the problems worse!

“Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”
