      I am a rock solid conservative, while I disagree with you on a great many things, I think you are an old school Democrat. You seem to retain the American values, that party USED to stand for. Your the kind of folks we could work with to be honest and fair. I really don't think that's true in the Obama/Pelosy party.

      I like her views, though I don't always agree with her. She is solid and gives good reasons for comments. She is a step ahead of most analysts.

      Kirsten, saw you on O'Reilly this evening (12/4/12). There is hope for you yet! Unlike Alan Colmes, you seem to recognize that it might not be wise to follow the extreme left off the cliff. Soon, your intellect will leave you with little choice but to see the facts for what they are and stop relying on liberal emotion.

      Ms. Powers I do not like you at all and let me tell you why. I am a coservative and most of the talking heads on your side of the fence are beyond the pale. They speak for and are only heard by the lunatic fringe. In short they are irrelevant. You on the other hand are cool, calm, unfortunately for my side intellegent, not above taking your own to task, and when you speak you make sense. Stop it please!!! We are having enough problems without nice liberals like you making us look bad!! Good job. take care. kevin

      Ms. Powers, I just saw your participation on Special Report with Brett Baier on 10/26. Specifically, the dialogue around the grieving father of the slain ex-navy seal. God Bless you for your comments and GOD DAMN Charles Lane for his "judgement" that this father's opinion of Secretary of State Clinton's condolences were insincere are "Unfair to Ms. Clinton. Mr. Lane position is a vile, disgusting and accurate representation of the attitude of the Obama administration on this subject. I can only hope and prey my fellow citizens will demonstrate their disgust of "watching" patriots die in real time on November 6th. May God Bless you and yours, wioth deep gratitude, Richard Stokes

      Morning Kirsten, to start, I enjoy and appricate your views, however, I don't agree with much of what you say. I do believe your are honest and fair (a spade is a spade). I have a question that the news media haven't asked.

      Obama is saying that he was going with the information given to him on Lybia. When he first took office there was an issue with the police (white) and a professor (black) and he knew the issue in no time and the details and acted fast. This was a no big deal except to the principals. Now I ask about Libia ? Thank. Bob

      Kerstin,

      I saw you on Fox this evening. I was in college during the Vietnam War. My family are Democrats. In 1968 It was a Democratic War. We protested at the Democratic convention and we were slaughtered. Republicans got us out of the war. I swore at that point in my life I could never be a Democrat.

      Just caught this 12 oz brain on Fox News and her comments regarding our military and elected official's relentless apologies for our troops accidental burning of the Quran.

      It was almost comical the way that Tucker Carlson and Charles Krauthammer slew her bubble-headed tripe. Will someone please get the Clinton's to buy this mindless, non-thinking, talking twit a brain? Fox News needs to reevaluate the quality of contributions that she brings to their product.

      I've been watching fox for some time and understand why fox give both political views; however, there are some people, like Bob Beckel and Kirsten Powers that simply do not add any value. Where Bob Beckel simply insults people that do not agree with him Kirsten Powers is predictable. This morning I heard Kirsten say repeat a carefully disected statment that John Boehner recently made, "... that is laughable..." Kirsten said something to the effect, I don't see anything funny about that. Does Kirsten really think we're that stupid out here and we don't understand that she took that statement out of context. Fox, I agree with the approach of providing both sides of the political spectrum, but please provide us with an intellectual discussion and not this sort of nonsense.

      Ms. Powers, For you to say as a commentator you believe Ron Paul cannot make it out of the Primary, because you and other commentators know how primarys work and his views are not going to go over well with republican voters. In addition, you say you know how republican voters operate and they aren't looking for someone like Ron Paul, especially given his views on foreign policy. Are you serious? I used to really like to listen to your views, but let's get real and give Ron Paul a chance and the airtime he has earned.

      I have to disagree with Ms. Powers on the affordable care act. First, the mandate is another freedom killer. The freedom to Remain independent of government without penalty is gone. Second, we already have several entitlement programs that are unsubstainable, medicare, social security, education, yes, education, (every ones entitled to one). Adding a new entitlement program is madness. You're not going to buy 50 million americans health insurance for free. The people who work are going to be forced to buy it for them through higher premiums. Taking money from those who work and giving it to those who don't work has created this feeling of entitlement and mass dependents. Keep it up Ms. Powers. The economic toilet is just around the corner.

      As a registered independent, Kristens views do not always reflect mine. That said, Kristen's willingness to publicly acknowledge her error regarding her statement that George Bush signed end-of-life counseling legislation, shows courage and journalistic integrity. It is this honesty, that makes FOX a greatand real news channel, and their analysts credible- a rare combination in todays propaganda (all bias and opinion and NOT news), and to me, repellent media. Hoorah to FOX and Kristen Powers for getting the facts straight and the willingness to admit mistakes.

      Kirsten is an Alaska Woman, raised up here. Do I agree with her political point of view, no. Do I expect her to stand up for her side, yes. Actually, if she looses on a point of debate, she will not run away, she will just reload. Then next time, attack with a better position and as they say kick someone in a place on the body that will affect thier posture. She is just like Palin, don't fault thier heart or thier accumen.. These women are not stupid nor are they air-heads, they can eat you. Just be glad that its only the alaskan woman who want to play with you. MRD

      I like Kirsten Powers. The men tend to interupt her but she generally has a sensible middle of the road even though she claims to be liberal point of view. Most of the time I like her common sense to ameliorate the extreme rants on both sides. Keep it up Kirsten and don't drop your good humor although I am sure you are tempted.

      I like Kirsten Powers a great deal - she's smart and thoughtful. But I just saw her conversation about Obama's religion and wanted her to know that...I believe that Obama is a Muslim because I don't recall him inviting any other religious leaders to a White House dinner...not Catholic, Protestant or Jewish...but his religion is his business. Not ours. It's quite possible that he was born somewhere else, but I don't care about that either. Am certain he agrees with Reverend Wright, but again...that's not a concern.

      All I care about is the job he's doing for us and it's not very good...

      I personally think she is a died in the wool democrat and you couldn't change her mind with a sledge hammer. She should read the USA Constitution. !st Amendment to the Constitution: quote: Congress shall make NO law respecting the establishment of religion or the free exercise thereof. In case she doesn't know what that means, it means Congress cannot make a law regarding the esablishment of religion or the freedom to exercise or use that freedom.

      Read the Constitution, Kristen.

I am very tired of being called a racist because I want my country back. I want my children to be able to speak freely about their beliefs just like we encourage all other races in this country to do. I am white and my children are white but this is not about that. I am an AMERICAN and my children are AMERICAN. My children are not taught to hate people at all and I don't hate anyone. What I want as an AMERICAN is the same liberties that we are told to be poliitically corrent about with others without some idiot calling me a racist. This Mosque is not about race...it is about total lack of consideration for the families of the people lost in 9/11...you or anyone else can not argue with any backup that this is not "wrong". Build a thousand Mosques (I don't care) but not there.

      you are a complete idiot...the comment you made on fox news about the mosque being built so close to ground zero,,,"we can not make governmental decisions based on feelings" and all of your other comments on this issue are absolutely outrageous. We make governmental decisions on feelings all of the time and why do we need to be concerned with being politically correct about this issue when my own children can not even talk about their Christian religion in school (in America where there is freedom of religion as you like to remind everyone) for fear of hurting other peoples feelings. There is no other feasible reason they want to build a Mosque in that area other than to throw it in our faces what they did. I am guessing that you didn't lose a loved one in 9/11 or you might think differently. I think you need to remember that while we are, as Americans, supposed to be always concerned about others "feelings" that those families deserve the same and more respect than you are giving them.

      Kirsten,

      I recently watched you on Fox News as you discussed Van Jones. I have always thought you to be relatively reasonable about most things, but I was saddened that you have so little concern that Obama appointed a self-avowed communist to an important position in our government. You are young, but you are educated. You apparently missed the class on the difficulties the USA has had with communism. Personally, I don't believe that those difficulties are behind us. Many in our country have died in the battle with communism. Van Jones was, and currently is, a communist. Some refer to him as a Marxist, but I don't see any difference. That Van Jones was in the government, and that the president of the US appointed him, are not the most profound problems. The most disturbing thing is that we have a public that would elect someone the ilk of Obama. Get a grip, girl, and read a bit more history.

      Perhaps it is the age difference, or where we come from, Kristen is from Alaska, me just outside Chicago. I lived throught he civil right movement, as a white male and supported the movement. I entered the USAF in 1965 went throught basic training in Tx then went to Mississippi, for follow on training. At the iduction center I met up with a young guy my age, just as lost, scared and confussed as me. He was black. We did basic together in the same unit then both went to Mississippi. One weekend we decided to go off base to a movie, boy were we stupid. He was denied entrance because he was black, me to because I was with him. When I was young I went with my grandparents (early 60s or late 50s) to Mississippi, and Tenn. I saw the signs blacks only, whites only, coloreds only. I was stunded. I watched the riots, I lived through a time when a white would NOT be convicted of killing a black, or for burning a cross, I heard and saw the hate speach.

      So when I saw Rev Wright I was concerned, but being from the Chicago area I figured Obama was just playing politics, probably slept throught most the services he attended. Then came the cop and the professor. He jumped right with both feet, why? This was not an issue for the President, then Obama threw out the race card, and I thought "OH NO HEARD WE GO AGAIN" Then Van Jones, then the Black Panther. As I watched the first reports I said to myself "Wow this looks just like Selma, Al or MS" only this time some is going to jail. Then nothing? I was shocked. I was watching a repeat of history, but turned 180 degrees. Instead of the all white mayor, sheriff, judge and jury ignoring the Klan, we have a black adminstration ignoring a bunch of black racist.

      I couple all this with Obama's appointments where his first priority seems to be proper gender race, nationality or sexual orientation, party membership rather than ability. I remember George Wallace running for President, I remember talking heads on the TV, the smart leaders of the time explaining why "Seperate but eaqual was good" I remember southern leaders, defending the Klan, turning a blind eye.

      Sorry Kristen but as an old guy I see history repeating itself, except this time it is much much more dangerous. Our leaders our deviding us, by race, income, and status on the food chain. No one who is white can disagree with the things the Democrats want, without being labeled a racist or something.

      I am a racist because I want secure borders. I want criminal illegals who have been convicted of a felony thrown out. I want illegal gang members thrown out. Then I am will to discuss whta to do with the other illegals. But first and formost secure the borders, throw out the criminals (we have enought home grown gangsters and thugs)

      I have been watching Kristen on O'Reilly for several months and felt she was a liberal with a good handle on politics. After tonight, I think she has been living in a gofer hole

      I just saw her on O'Reilly tonight. Although to me she has always been wrong, I have regarded her as one of the few liberals who are reasonable regarding mischief on the left. Tonight, it seems to me that she has turned to the dark side- she simply ignored the point of the argument that the MSM has been ignoring (blacking out) stories that illustrate the far-left positions of Obama and his team. Tonight, she lost some credibility, sorry to say.

      I saw Kristen on O'Riely tonight. (07/20/10), There is definitely a disconnect between Kristen and the general population. I guess if you want to go into journalism you have pledge allegiance to be a Card Carrying Liberal. Grow up Kristen you made a fool out of yourself tonight.

      What could she possibly mean by Bush Voter Intimidation. Police patrolling areas for public safety or people being asked to show ID to prove they were able to vote in the district vs. armed thugs stationed at polls ?? come-on girl, get real !!

      Notwithstanding my conservative bent, I was always a Kirsten fan on the basis that she was intellectually honest even if I disagreed with her. That is no longer true.......She has become a robotic mainstream media liberal...how disappointing!

      Kirsten just needs to go to her obama messiah shrine now so that everyone in real life can continue to secretly laugh at how moronic she is. LOL

      Although I am a conservative and abondoned the biased mainstream media years ago, I generally respected Kirsten Powers for her opinion and professionalilsm whenever she appeared on Fox News. However, lately she is destroying her own credibility by blinding defending the Obama administration at every turn. It was so obvious by here demeanor that she knew and felt that the way this Black Panther voter intimidation case was handled by Holder was clearly wrong. Let's face it when something is wrong, it is wrong!! Kirsten, please don't let anyone steal your own soul from you, because then you are nothing but their puppet! Isn't this what news agencies in communist countries are - puppets for the socialist government?!?

      Kirsten, how dare you come off like some whiney ass "viiiiiiictim..." you take women back to the victorian helplessness. "I talked to the people." at DOJ. Because they're men I don't have to worry my pretty blonde bimbo head.!! OOooohhh, President Bush only hired conservatives...... That's just mean!! And Obama only hires facist liberals! IDIOT!!

      Watched the dispute between Megyn Kelly and Kirsten Powers. Ms. Powers appears to be genetically unable to answer a simple yes/no question without straw-man set-ups and intense finger pointing --- preferrably at former President Bush.

      Bush is gone. Obama is in. Bush hired conservatives while Obama hires Black socialists. Its the nature of political appointees to hire those who agree with you, not those who wish to stab you in the back. Every president has done it, so why does Powers continually try to shove that point to the forefront?

      If she could only stay on topic and stop trying to talk over Kelly, and perhaps prepare herself with the facts of the discussion, she could be a worthwhile addition to dialogue. But to not read the reports, and to actually push the idea that taking a "win" in court and then downgrading it because they "didn't have the evidence" and calling it some sort of advanced enlightened legal position is pure idiocy. That' like taking first a first degree murder conviction and downgrading ot to simple assault, because you just now found out that the perp's mother didn't breast feed him long enough, and that even his imaginary friend didn't like him too much. So, obviously, there is an imperative to make the punishment irrevelent to the greater, crime.

      My legal expertise is greatly more than Ms. Powers'. And due to my age, I can also say it is also greater then Ms. Kelly's. These two legal "pups" can present their sides of the argument all they want, but it seems that of the two, Ms. Powers lacks the ability to research her topic and present according to that research. Kelly, on the other hand, is a well informed, well prepared blonde pit-bull for the facts.

      But perhaps Ms. Powers is merely fulfilling her purpose in life: being a bad example.

      Dear dear Kirsten; you're easy on the eyes and very intelligente. Nevertheless, the "discussion" with Meghan Kelly was a feeble attempt to defend the indefensible. Barry O should be impeached for violating his oath of office; BHO is supposed to defend the US from ALL enemies foreign and DOMESTIC. Those scumbags from the soon to be eradicated Panther party need to be jailed and prosecuted. Maybe the World Court will handle the task since the DOJ is not up to the job.

      I would like to suggest that Kirsten read the following article and then give us some feedback on where she stands on the New Black Panther case.

      Kirsten made Megyn look like the race baiter she actually is. This incident has been blown way out of proportion

      Kirsten... YOU WERE OWNED! Not all your fault, all you could say was "what about Bush" and "big scary black guy" to try and throw Meagan off her game. Only idiotic liberals believe your assertion that Black Panthers at a polling place, swinging clubs and calling people "crakers" is no big deal.

      I can't believe that Kirsten believed everything that came out of her own mouth. I seriously think she had a hard time trying to defend the Black Panthers but, she had to do it. The great thing about this is the facts speak for themselves. Kirsten, choose your battles wisely and you may want to come over to the side of truth.

      @anonymous: Is everyone that does not agree with the Democrats a racist? The Black Panthers were wrong and the Obama administration did nothing about it. These are just the facts. Like it or leave it. Why do Democrats always resort to name calling instead of having an intelligent conversation about the issues? Look at your post, you just did it. P.S. the blame Bush thing is getting old.

      @anonymous: Whats predictable is that when democrats point out conservative hypocrisy the knee jerk response is "there you go blaming Bush." And that some how settles the issue. Well it sure doesn't. Pointing out hypocrisy isn't a cheap shot. And I thought Megan Kelly was suppose to be a part of the "straight news" portion of FOX?
