Elisabeth Hasselbeck Is A Whiny Whiner on ABC’s The View

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I told you that Elisabeth Hasselbeck may finally be leaving The View? Well from the sound of things today, there may be more truth to that rumor than I previously thought (and hoped for).

Apparently the recent political discussions that have been going on between the ladies of The View have made Elisabeth Hasselbeck “really upset” because she feels she can’t win.

As the lone Republican on the talk panel — not to mention the youngest — she just can’t seem to win against her loud, liberal counterparts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg.

While tensions are high on set, a “View” staff member told the Chicago Sun-Times that things aren’t as bad as they were during the Rosie O’Donnell era. Still, it’s bad enough that Barbara Walters has set up a “cooling off” meeting for her ladies.

Is Elisabeth Looking for a New ‘View’?

Boohoo Elisabeth! The View is a show about current events and currently the events surround the elections; and politics make everyone’s blood boil, thus creating passionate debates. Brush up on your debating skills and maybe you’ll win one!

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen and go over to FOX News where you’ll be with your own kind.

Or take a long walk off a short pier – that works too.

    Perhaps a new job with FOX is a reason why I saw Elisabeth on a recent show. Maybe they were testing out just how many viewers she would get.

    Being that she’s the youngest member on the panel of “The View,” she simply doesn’t have the life experience of Joy and Whoopie to DEBATE back with them. What I have seen of the show and a hot topic is discussed, Elisabeth >looks< defeated and emotional, when other members don’t agree with her.

    Let her go to FOX. What happens after the elections?

  2. Jeanne Hubay Says:

    Re: Eliszabeth’s latest faux pas which drew enough viewer response to cause her to apologize. I have been a fan of Deepak Chopra for many years, and evidently Larry King regards him well since he has been a guest many times. I was aghast when E referred to Deepak as the man in the sparkling eyeglasses. I was glad to catch her apology today (12/4/08). I agree with those who think she would be more effective on FOX News channel.

  3. GAYLE Says:

    WHY IS EVERYONE PICKING ON ELISABETH. SHE HAS HER OPINIONS JUST AS JOY AND WHOOPI DO. I FEEL THAT SHE IS A VERY SMART PERSON AND IS WELL VERSED ON ALOT OF SUBJECTS. SURE SHE DOESNT HAVE THE AGE BEHIND HER BUT GIVE HER A CHANCE, WITH EXPERIENCE SHE WILL GET BETTER. THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME VOICE MY OPINION. GAYLE C UNDERWOOD

  4. Debbie Wallace Says:

    Please promote Mrs. Whiny off the show. Her views are nostalgic. Her parents are probably in their early 90’s, or early 100’s, because her views are out dated. She judges when she is to be giving her own opinion, and it’s showing her true colors which is not that diverse. It’s a very colorful world we live in, and her parents forgot to tell her to change with the times. There’s a thin between an opinion, and judging,and she fails to know the difference. thanks sign, waiting on you
    to quit!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Mandee Says:

    Elizabeth is a refreshing change — she is Biblically based and strong, in the midst of sooooo
    many liberal thinking gals. I would’n’t watch unless Elizabeth was there to show a bit of the conservative, Christian point of view!! That show needs her VIEW big time!!!

  6. BJ Says:

    ELIZABETH, YOU KEEP BEING STRONG, TRUE TO YOURSELF, NICE, POLITE, DO NOT SHARE YOUR LIVE WITH THEM, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL WITH A DECENT LIFE, PARENTS, HUSBAND, BEAUTIFUL KIDS, LET THE LIBERALS HAVE “THE WONDERFUL LIFE THEY PRETEND TO HAVE” WHERE WHAT JOY REPRESENTS IS THEM… YOU ARE GOING TO BE FINE.
    EVEN IF JESUS COMES DOWN NOW ……. THEY WOULD HATE HIM……. GOD BLESS YOU.THEY WILL NEED HIM ONE DAY……
    THERE ARE MILLIONS OF WONDERFUL WONDERFUL LIKE YOU…AND THEY WILL ALWAYS HATE YOU AND THEM…. .

  7. Joan Bell Says:

    I think Barbara and Bill are afraid to let Elisabeth go because of all the inside information she will tell. They will cintinue to let her be a polarizing effect on the show.

  8. Mira Says:

    Elizabeth feels that she has to protect the Republican party for anything that anyone says no matter how trivial. She is so annoying that I find her hard to watch and look forward to the days when she is absent from the panel. Give us a break, we are all entitled to our own opinions but she is one of the most narrow minded people I have ever watched. She belongs on FOX with Rush Limbaugh and hopefully she will go there SOON!

  9. Catherine Says:

    I agree with the majority of the above comments. I don’t care that Elisabeth is extremely conservative, Republican, and very Christian. It’s that she’s the type of person who tries to push all of her “views” onto others, which she deems as being the only “right” ones. She doesn’t debate, she argues, becomes very defensive, and narrow-minded. She appears to live somewhat of a sheltered life. I think she is used to getting whatever she wants and her way most of the time. I don’t think her age has a lot to do with her inexperience with debating, or life, in general. I feel that she may be the type of person who will remain stagnant in her beliefs and views on life. The only thing that MAY (?) change her a bit, would be some real life “experience” or trauma, like going through a divorce or a change in her financial status from well-off to middle-to-lower class, or lower. That’s it. Thanks for reading my thoughts.

  10. Dixie Catterall Says:

    I love Elisabeth and her point of view. I’m a senior and think she is very fair and is stuck with 4 liberals who try to over shout her. I only watch because of her and Whoopi. Joy is a bully and a loudmouth with very little class. Sherri is afraid to open her mouth because of losing her job and going against Barbara. My opinion of Barbara has changed greatly since watching her pick on McCain and fall all over liberals on the show. Whoopi seems geniune in stating what is important to her. If Elisabeth left the show it would be to her benefit as she could do much better elsewhere. I would then stop watching The View as it would be totally a liberal point of view.

  11. Barbara Says:

    Now that Elisabeth is expecting #3 perhaps she’ll finally stay home and raise her children and leave The View.
    Having the luxury of recording the program I tend to roll through her when possible.
    She has gotten on my nerves from day one! I try to be objective but after a busy day’s work one does not need her whining. There are ways of discussing and debating matters maturely like the other women on The View.

    Thank you.

  12. Connie Says:

    AFTER WATCHING YESTERDAYS SHOW AND HAVING TO SEE ELISABETH HAVE ANOTHER TANTRUM, I THINK IT IS TIME SHE MAKES AN EXCUSE AND LEAVES THE VIEW TO GO AND JOIN RUSH AS HIS SIDEKICK. NO MATTER WHAT IS DISCUSSED, SHE HAS TO HAVE HER WAY OR THE HIGHWAY. SHE MUST HAVE BEEN SPOILED AS A CHILD, AND NEVER REALLY LIVED IN THE WORLD OF COMPROMISE. I ENJOY DEBATES, BUT SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO SEE ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW. PLEASE REPLACE HER SOON. THANKS

  13. The Rev. George Thomas Says:

    Why is no one saying anything about Elizabeth insult to Mrs. Obama. In speaking about the guest visits of Mrs. McCain and Mrs. Obama, Elizabeth inferred the Mrs. Obama limited the topics of discusion because she (Mrs. Obama) had something to hide. Also, in Elizabeth’ argument with Rosie, all Rosie was asking of Elizabeth was Elizabeth’s comment “as a friend.” I feel the program shouild have a conservative point of view from one or two people, but Elizabeth is unable to listen and she is unethical.

  14. Carol Raemer Says:

    The only reason I even watch the view is due to Whoopie. The rest of them as far as I am concerned are ridiculous, loud mouthed idiots. Barbara acts like such a primadona. I am neither democratic or republican and believe that those that are true blue to their party have no inteligent thoughts of their own and are sheep. Our country needs thinkers who look at the whole story and what is right for everyone not just the religous right or the far left. I record the view so I can fast forward through Joy, Sherri, Elizabeth & Barbara when they get on their soap boxes. There are ocassions when Joy and Elizabeth do say some interesting things but not many. Sherri’s humor is silly and degrading to herself. Barbara is in to hereself too much. I would love to see Whoopi with someone of her caliber on a talk show.

  15. c.w. Says:

    I think Elizabeth is a nice person but she gets on my nerve.
    She cannot agree with anyone else point of view but hers. She needs to learn to smile some more and stop being so serious. It is always her way or no way.
    The name of the show is the view therefore, she needs to see others point of view it is a fun show. I watch the show everyday and I enjoy Whoopie, Joy, Barbara and Sherri because from time to time they will agree with others. But Elizabeth is always on the defence and so whiny, seems like she is going to cry at times. Elizabeth learn to be more fun and smell the roses. laugh some more.

  16. marie Says:

    I love Elisabeth. She is the only one who isn’t crude and rude and a boob.

    She needs to keep Joy and Whoppie from running the show down. You need some class on the show and Elisabeth fills that role. Evferyone one the show has low morals except for Elisabeth, that is why she meakes them so uncomfortable to be around her.

  17. connie c. Says:

    I enjoy the view. However, Elizabeth seems to monopolize the show with the her ranting and raving while the other ladies including Barbara cater to her…which consequently has made Elizabeth more arrogant and ignorant about life. She seems pre-occupied with self – always looking at the camera. Elizabeth, it’s time you stayed home and took care of your kids now that number three is on the way.

  18. Juanita Says:

    I detest Elizabeth. I have been hoping that she gets fired or that she would get pregnant, at least she be off for while. The happest day was when she announced that she is pregnant. I change the channel when she starts to rant and rave, I just cannot stand that woman.

  19. mrs Says:

    I have been an ardent fan of “The View” since it was a fledgling show.

    I’ve seen many heated discussions. I’ve watched co-hosts come and go. There’s one current co-host who SHOULD GO, whose contract should NOT be renewed…Ms. Hasselbeck!

    I am tired and sick to death of her:
    –self-righteous indignation!
    –the silver spoon in her mouth!
    –inablility to stay on subject (unless its her subject)
    –holier than Thou attitude.

    After she delivers, maybe some smart soul could deliver her with a pink slip allowing her to join forces with one of her role model, Ms. Palin.

    It would culminate into two air heads in search of a vaccuum.

    Then, “The View” could enjoy the opportunity of having a new co-hostess with as much smarts, wit and flair as Whoppi, Joy, Sherri and Ms. Walters.

  20. patricia taylor Says:

    I am so tired of Elizabeth’s ranting. Glad she is pregnant, maybe she won’t come back. She thinks she knows everything and is always right- she is not willing to listen to other opinions. Get rid of her.

  21. hdrobnick Says:

    I feel that Elsbeth is not very mature. She respects no one ,talks over everyone like auctioner. I swear those lips flap so fast half of the time it is not clear. She needs to join with Ann Coulter so thsy can run the conservative party.. She thinks she is right but need to study the facts. Just go back over the last eight years and idiot Bush, and get her head out of the sand. I enjoy the show more when she is not there …..

  22. patricia taylor Says:

    I agree 100%- How can we get rid of her. I find that more and more I don’t want to watch the show, but I hate to let one person spoil it for me, but it is working.

  23. Linda in PA Says:

    I have watched the show from the very first day it started. I have seen co-hosts come & go. Elizabeth is by far the least talented person to ever sit on the panel. She is narrow minded & most of the time very ill-informed. I think she memorizes talking points sent to her on a daily basis from FOX News. She pretends to have pure Christian values, but most of her comments show that she has absolutely no compassion for the disadvantaged in this country. A little while ago when Pres. Bush vetoed the renewal of the “CHIPS” program to provide health care for poor & disadvantaged children, she applauded his actions. She has such a limited outlook on life & thinks that all children have the kind of privileged life that she had growing up and that her own kids enjoy daily. Once again, a “family values” phoney decides to constantly leave her kids to be raised by hired help while “Mommy” goes out in the public spotlight to capture her glory & fame. Surely her former quarterback husband earns more than enough money for their family to live very comfortably. I applaud all working women, but she should find her satisfaction in being with the children that God has blessed her with. Her recent comments about Olympic Champ, Michael Phelps, were so judgemental. She just never wants to give anybody a little understanding. I’m afraid Eliz. is another bogus “Compassionate Conservative” hypocrite. She should be replaced with another conservative, but someone who is well informed, well read, willing to listen to the opinions of others & most of all, someone who does not look like they are about to burst into tears constantly.

  24. Lillian M. Silva Says:

    Elizabeth is one of the the reasons I stopped watching after they let Rosie ( the only one with gumption enough to say what she really thought)go. The other is Barbara Walters. Elizabeth is immature and demonstrates her ignorance and narrow minded prejudice every time she opens her mouth. Barbara is a two faced holier-than-thou hypocrite.

  25. susan welch Says:

    Elizabeth has got to go. She is rude and inconsiderate and I’m convinced not too smart. She is a shining example of what’s wrong with America. No matter what is right or wrong, as a Republican she will never agree to what might be a good Democratic idea. Shouldn’t we do what’s best for the country?
    Yesterday Whoopie opened up with the killing of wolves in Alaska and before you knew it she had it turned to abortion. Please Barbara or Bill, let her go. She adds absolutely nothing to the panel. As much as I enjoy the show I’m done until she goes.

  26. Linda in PA Says:

    I totally agree with the comment from Susan Welch (02/06). I, too, saw the exchange between Whoppi & Eliz. It was typical uninformed Eliz. turning the inhumane aerial hunting of wolves & other animals (thank you, Sara Palin?!) into an abortion issue. Why can’t Eliz. stay on topic?? It’s simple, she has no depth on any issue to continue a detailed discussion. She & Palin are cut from the same cloth…….minimum knowledge, base, or depth on important issues facing our country. Remember the VP debate last Oct.? Palin never answered the questions that were asked. She just jumped from topic to topic & let’s not forget the pathetic winking & “shout outs”. I wonder if Eliz. knows that Africa is a continent? If she does, she’s one point ahead of Palin. Granted, EH is not running for the 2nd highest office in the land; but, she adds nothing to the panel. She should stick to topics like “American Idol”….more her area of expertise.

  27. Betty Says:

    Good job Linda in PA, I could not have said it better!!

  28. Betty Says:

    I agree that Elizabeth should find another home. I think she bring down ratings. She is self centered and give a new name to dumb blonde. She always give her own personal views and not on the topic and hand. She is not a contribution to the show.

  29. Sandra Rumery Says:

    Sandra from Maine

    Its unfortunate that Elizabeth has so much difficulty keeping up with the rest of the Views participants. I know Barbra Walters and her producers need to balance the show, however there must be some right winger who has more intelligence. I find her pathetic.

  30. patricia taylor Says:

    I agree 100%- How can we get rid of her?

  31. patricia taylor Says:

    Elizabeth needs to be gone- she thinks she knows everything. If she loves Sarah so much maybe she should go work for her.

  32. Dorothy Lang Says:

    I like Elizabeth. She is the only one who is not rude and impolite. Joy continues to but in while she is talking and make funny faces and remarks while Elizabeth is trying to say her piece. This to me is very rude. Elizabeth does not make faces and remarks while Joy is talking. Whoopie just doesn’t know how to handle the whole thing. She has her own impolite way of cutting Elizabeth off by going to comercial every time she thinks Elizabeth is going to say something positive about a Bush or O’Reilly. Heaven forbid she should say what she believes while everybody else goes on for hours about their side of things,etc.politics, celebs., or whatever.

  33. patricia taylor Says:

    You must not be watching the same show as the rest of us.

  34. LTaylor Says:

    Elizabeth is the only reason I watch this show. She is the one with some moral values and does not constantly put our country down. Joy is so liberal that she cannot see the truth and Whoopie needs to clean up her mouth on the air that what she says is not bleeped. Elizabeth, stay strong to your convictions and God bless. It would be nice if another conservative were on the show so that it could be two against two. Have you considered hiring a man? Since President Bush is gone, ,Joy won’t have anyone to bash any more. I loved it when Bill O’Reilly was on the show and showed her up. She better realize that she lives in the greatest country in the world and start showing some respect.

  35. bg Says:

    Indeed, it makes for a more interesting show when there is diversity of cultures and opinions, but, Elizabeth does not defend her positions with rational and deliberate thought.
    She is so emotional and her thoughts just spew out of her mouth without serious consideration of what she is saying and whom they might offend. She interrupts her co-hosts and guests constantly and just comes across on the panel as a lightweight. When you have (2) strong, liberal personalities and (1) centrist voicing their varying opinions; you must have a strong and well-informed conservative counterpart to balance the panel and its discussions. I have turned off the show so many times because of her immature tantrums and ill-formulated arguments. Please find someone who can stand up for her positions without the drama!

  36. Monty Wright Says:

    Most of us value our own opinions. That being said one should respect other opinions as well no matter how different or your opinion may be. In retrospect I do not care too much for Elizabeth opinions however I do respect her words no matter how far to the right they may be. Elizabeth is part of the the view and in my most humble opinion she must stay. She brings alot to the table and with out her the show would not have the impact it has. I say to you Elizabeth keep it coming and continue to speak your mind. I may differ from your answers and it might make me a bit angry at times however you keep kickin butt!!! you are one of the reasons I tune in. ABC would be very ignorant to let you go!! A loyal friend and viewer Monty

  37. Freda Myers Says:

    I love Elisabeth. She is beautiful, smart, and refreshing. She has a right to her opinion and she is constantly belittled esp. by thst loud mouth know it all Joy. By the way, why is every one on the show getting shows and promotions of thier on except Elisabeth. Could it be that she is conservative??????????????If Elisabeth leaves the show I certainly want be watching anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. Gloria Walker Says:

    Elisabeth needs to go she brings nothing to the show. She has no respect for her co-workers. If you dont feel the same way as she does concerning her **Political views**** she gets upset and yells and screams so that you cannot have a adult conversation. The show wouldbe better without her, she needs to tone down her comments no one else on the show reacts like that about their political views, it needs to stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The show will be better without her or her comments.

  39. patricia taylor Says:

    @Gloria Walker

    I agree 110%- she has a bad spirit- too negative.

    [This comment was received by Hilary Shepherd via email.]

  40. patricia taylor Says:

    @Freda Myers

    You must not be watching- she has promoted her book, her clothing line and her husband.
    Get real.

    [This comment was received by Hilary Shepherd via email.]

  41. Joeyr Says:

    Elisabeth scares me! She is such a radical republican that she can see nothing good about the Democrats. If Obama had left our country in the mess it is in and Bush had just been in office for 22 months she would be saying give Bush a chance he has only been in office for 22 months, but since it is Obama that has been in for 22 months she thinks he is the worst president and hasn’t acomplished anything. She is an exxtremist republican and doesn’t care to work together to fix our country. Please Elisabeth go and be buddy buddy with bully Bill O’Riely. Go Go Go away.

  42. susan Says:

    I totally agree that elisabeth needs to leave. She is more of a detriment than an asset to the show. The comments made about her where right on. She is immature, narrow-minded, pushy, and obnoxious in her delivery. I don’t always agree with the opinions of any of the co-hosts on the show, but they have the class not to single-handedly turn it into a screaming match. Elisabeth made a comment one time to the others to “Think outside the box” while AGAIN trying to shove her opinion down everyones’ throat. I laughed so hard that I almost fell out of my chair! Not only does she live in “the box”, but a pretty plush one at that. I just wish the producers would listen to the viewers, as I read and hear about more and more people tuning out.

  43. Dennis Says:

    Elizabeth is the only reason I watch the view. Joy is a loudmouthed Liberal that can’t have a conversation with someone about anything conservative.I can’t believe Barbara was arguing with Elizabeth about Weiner Showing his weiner except that she had the picture of it and thought he looked great…..

  44. Patricia Says:

    Elizabeth is the loud mouth- thinks she knows it all. Hope she leaves and goes to Fox with the Jerks over there.

  45. debbie wallace Says:

    Please Elisabeth, why don’t you quit already? You are not college educated but you think you are. Your fake blonde hair, skinny fake body, your gay relationship with barbara, a husband that don’t like you, you’re outdated and in case you did’nt smell it, your shit do stink!!! You are the typical american that thinks because you’re blonde and skinny, that you’re better than everybody, but to your surprise you are not!!!. Stop sleeping with barbara and you will feel better about yourself, maybe then she’ll fire you, it’s long overdue.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only reason you are still on the show because barbara don’t want to be the only ass on the show!!!!!!!!!!.

  46. Patricia Says:

    I agree with your comments about Elizabeth, but not Barbara Walters. Barbara is an icon and it is disrespectful to refer to her in that manner. Elizabeth is fair game.
