Another example of 'wool sunglasses' in fashion. At approximately 3:56 p.m EST, some four minutes or so ago, Fox News' Shepard Smith stated at the break that we have a HUGE development in Arizona's S.B. 1070. He stated that an 'expedited appeal' was file with the 9th Circuit, which is in San Francisco, and a ruling could be reached in days. Last night on Fox News, Jan Drink-wine Brewer stated that in the morning when she sobered up after a night of crying in her cacti-poo no-joy juice she would file an expedited appeal. 'Fair and Balanced' has me suffering from vertigo when I watch the 180 degree news on FOX.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 7:10 pm ET

I watched a segment on Fox News (keep your enemies closer) on the 73 % of the country favoring SB1070 in AZ. Here is how it was calculated by them...53% of the country favored it...20% 'really' favored it...that equaled the 73%, right? Then they stated 47% were against it...still LMAO. They have such quantitative methods in their calculations...Fair and Balanced, like a flea and an elephant on a see-saw.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 7:11 pm ET

Why haven't I heard any right-wing criticism of OUR president lately in regards to the BP oil spill?????? Even Fox News Nutzi, O'Hannity, found another theme to attack him on. I always hear O'Hannity refer to the president as the 'anointed one'. O'Hannity flunked out of the seminary in an attempt to become ANOINTED...fact. Talk about the "pot calling the kettle black"...O'Hannity is stoned on his right-wing adoration of himself.


Veritas vos liberabit   July 29th, 2010 7:28 pm ET

The deregulation of our government will lead to a financial and environmental crisis. The lack of government involvement has resulted and will continue to result in abuse by institutions. BP oil geyser is an example of corporate abuse and not enough governmental control. Any attempt to address this mess is referred to as socialism and used as a means to scare and manipulate the public. Many Democratic societies including European nations and Canada have similar policies in health care. Our Post Office is socialized. I do not hear anyone complaining about that!


Smith in Oregon   July 29th, 2010 7:59 pm ET

It appears that Charlie Rangel has offered what the Republican Potty'ticians have wanted for a very long time (Involutary Military Service, the 'draft') in a crass and callous attempt to obtain leverage with the Republican Potty'ticians in his ethic's hearing.

Before Congress, H.R. 5741 is currently being argued in the house of representatives. If this bill is passed, H.R. 5741 will give the president the power to require 2 years of compulsory service from every US resident between ages 18 and 42. If this bill passes thru Congress, it would likely be modified by the US Senate. Such a involuntary enlistment law is likely going to happen, thanks entirely to America's enormous Shadow Government that is now pulling the strings and running out of cannon fodder for their future wars.

The bill's sponsor is Democratic Congressman Charles Rangel. The bill does not yet have a co-sponsor. It was introduced on July 15th and is now before the armed services committee.

Is this obvious Republican pandering bill which smacks and smells like it has US Senator John McCain's handy work all over it, simply an attempt by Charlie Rangel to work out an agreement during his ongoing ethics hearing?

As I have mentioned before, McCain-Palin would have already passed this bill or one nearly identical to it into law, filling the US Military with fresh recruits needed for the future Republican led Shadow Government created wars in their future.

Despite US Military recruiters portraying a rosy picture of plenty of new volunteers, the US Military is largely overworked, and largely understaffed by troops that have chosen to leave after multiple back breaking dutys in Iraq or Afghanistan. You think 42 years old is to old to be forced to serve? ROV drivers that fly remote controlled reconn and attack vehicles only need a minimal amount of physical conditioning and would likely be staffed by those of that age group if they were 'lucky'.


Veritas vos liberabit   July 29th, 2010 8:00 pm ET

America is currently seen by the world as destroying other countries such as invading Iraq and Afghanistan for profit based on lies. Let us all remember that the Patriot Act imposed by the Bush administration has greatly reduced all Americans' civil rights


Smith in Oregon   July 29th, 2010 8:04 pm ET

Yesterday's Arizona federal court's decision to strip Arizona's Immigration law from many of its statues represents a victory for Oregon's team of attorneys helping President Obama fight against Racist and Unconstitutional Laws across America that have sprung up in the few Republican Potty ruled states still remaining in America.

States such as Arizona, Utah and Texas are trying to bring back the Jim Crow laws of segregation, racism and bigotry to people in America. The Republican Tea Potty is not trying to be simply conservative, they are trying to return America back to the horrible segregation days that plagued America for many years preventing America from achieving it's brightest future for decades.

The Republican Potty's hero, Ronald Reagan granted mass 'AMNESTY' to illegal immigrants in America, it was largely seen as self-serving as The Republican Potty's special interests wanted to break up labor unions and hire cheap labor to fill those positions in order to bolster their greedy profit margins.

Now after the Republican Potty's special interests have outsourced slave labor to China, Cambodia and Thailand and many of their manufacturing plants, the Republican Potty'ticians are dead set against mass AMNESTY because those workers would directly compete against their child slave laborers overseas.


Smith in Oregon   July 29th, 2010 8:08 pm ET

Laura Ingraham, reams of US, Afghanistan and Pakistan Military documents posted by Wikileaks show that Bush-Cheney deliberately aided and supported with Billions of American taxpayer dollars a known terrorist organization (Pakistani ISI) and a sponsor of State Terrorism (Pakistan) while telling the world that America would attack any nation in the world that supported Terrorist Organizations and State Terrorism, making them the biggest hypocrites on earth and the most corrupt administration in America's entire history.

What are your thoughts on that stunning disclosure that American taxpayers were funding both sides of the Afghanistan War?


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 8:17 pm ET

WAKE UP AMERICA!!! Imagine each of the 50 states enforcing their own immigration laws. Each state you cross into would have check points and border guards. Be careful of what you wish for.

Review the past administration efforts to revamp the laws on immigration and you constantly find right-wing dunderheads blocking them. GREAT EXAMPLE...John McCain once stated he wants illegal immigrants to "have a path to citizenship"...re-election time and his seat is up for grabs and suddenly he blockades that road.

The U.S. allows over 1,000,000 skilled workers to enter the country each year on work visas because they cannot find the skill in U.S. citizens. Tell me where will the farmers find unskilled workers to replace Mexican farm workers? In Seattle apple farmers in fear of being fined for hiring Mexican workers are bringing in Jamaican's to pick their crops. They have to pay around $2500 for airline transportation to get them there. Who ends up paying for it?

Jan Drink-wine Brewer keeps talking about all the violence ACROSS the border in Mexico...keep your nose in your own back yard. The Mexican government, under intense pressure from the U.S., is fighting drug cartels who have lost their markets in Mexico because the government there legalized drugs. So they are headed to the borders to distribute their drugs and the Mexican government is at war with them.

When you head to the polls on November 2nd, keep in mind this is political hype. The next day it won't even be newsworthy..The problem requires a solution, but it requires a non-partisan effort to fix it.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 8:19 pm ET

Good news for future Social Security recipients...Mexican nationals in the U.S. paid over $7.7 billion dollars into that fund and they won't be collecting a check...


Smith in Oregon   July 29th, 2010 8:38 pm ET

@ Cajazz76:24:8 yes that would be very good news if the depraved and utterly corrupt Republican administration of Bush-Cheney hadn't robbed the Social Security revenue coffers to create America's gigantic Shadow Government, DHS.

I believe American's are fed up with the utterly depraved ways that American taxpayer dollars are being spent by the US Military Complex, millions to druglords and warlords in Afghanistan, billions to the terrorist organization Pakistani ISI who used that money to equip and train suicide bombers to murder American and NATO troops in Afghanistan. American taxpayers need to turn off the tap on US Military complex spending.


Dodie   July 29th, 2010 8:49 pm ET

The US is witnessing a subtle shift from democracy to ‘global’ corporate rule and represents a change in our values and aspirations. Evidence of this is when the Supreme Court made the decision to give corporations the same rights as individuals. Corporations have no beliefs, feelings or consciences. The problem comes when corporations are controlled by nonresidents and their interests may conflict with fundamental respects of American voter’s value system. Corporations having the same rights as individuals is an oxymoron as corporations are not members of ‘We the People' by whom and for whom our Constitution was established.

Sarah Palin, the “cheerleader” for the Tea Party (neoliberalism) whose main purpose is obtaining corporate control over our legislature as many individuals within the party including Palin are backed and paid for through huge amounts of corporate dollars. There is nothing wrong with a market driven approach as that is what has made this country great. However, the concern is for balance. Too much corporate control = fascism and too much government control – socialism. What we need to keep the USA strong and viable is ‘balance’


joe   July 29th, 2010 8:52 pm ET

how about canada border? are they going to stop illegals there?


Dodie   July 29th, 2010 8:52 pm ET

The continued lie about the US in Afghanistan for Bin Ladin or Taliban is frayed at the edges to say the least. The US enters Afghanistan and other Islamic countries trying to buy a favor and assist tribes against other tribes. The tribes that align with the US take guns, training, money and assistance. The poor locals do not have much of a choice or opportunity so they are obliged thus incurring enemies with other tribes. These tribe people are backed against the wall. We cannot make a democratic state from a place populated with tribe people as they have no history or interest in our “Democracy” The only thing we will create is terrorists and ideologies of their cultural sentiment to keep the order. At least the terrorists speak the same language and believe in the same religion.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 8:57 pm ET

@Smith in Oregon

No really intended to appease anyone, just bringing it to the attention of those who continue to state that Mexican workers in the U.S. do not pay taxes.

I am assured President Obama is sick of what has become of this country during the eight years of extreme damage Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld created and when the American public finally understands it, which I am in doubt of, maybe their votes will be cast in a manner to assist in the change. Keep on truckin with the dialogue and awareness will follow...hopefully. It's a hell of a haul road...


Kate Knippa   July 29th, 2010 8:59 pm ET

I will not watch laura Ingrahm but will turn the channel to another show instead. She is too extreme and angry for me to waste my time watching.


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:02 pm ET

Hi Jan the eyes of Texas are upon you and back you to the finish you go girl .


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:05 pm ET

Governor you have many laws in the state book why you need one more law?
How you can sue the federal government when you were getting federal aid
You are just wasting the tax payer money


Susan Sanchez   July 29th, 2010 9:05 pm ET

Larry, I would like to ask Governor Brewer how she would feel if every hispanic person, legal or illegal, left her state? How do you think that your state would survive without the vitality of the hispanic people and all their money that they bring to the United States?


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:05 pm ET

Its the Administration in the wrong they are committing treason upon the states .


Julie Daly   July 29th, 2010 9:06 pm ET

Jan Brewer is one tough lady; she's doing what every great governor should be doing for their state, standing up for the security of the people and not backing down from the mis-guided Obama administration.


Billy W TX   July 29th, 2010 9:07 pm ET

Arizona imagration law is needed, all other states should pass the same law.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 9:07 pm ET

Michael Armstrong Sr.

Which eyes in Texas are you speaking of the 'would I's? No I wood knot...


Monroe H   July 29th, 2010 9:07 pm ET

If I were a city or state and ignored laws, the federal government usually steps in. Who steps in when it is the federal government ignores laws, the people?


Lucy Muller   July 29th, 2010 9:08 pm ET

We are with you Governor Brewer and I am writing from New York. You should run for President, because you are more effective than the man we have now. Will someone tell me why it is so awful to have to carry i.d.? I have a photo i.d. and a driver's license and if the police stop me, I have nothing to fear. I know migrant workers, work very hard, but they rneed work papers and they need to return to their countries in the winter.


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:08 pm ET

Our administration has declared mutiny against the majority of the people .


art   July 29th, 2010 9:09 pm ET

Governor-

John McCain IS the federal government in Arizona. No one has heard a peep out of him during your newly contrived version of "immigration roulette." Is there not enough money in it for him to speak?


rj   July 29th, 2010 9:09 pm ET

We the people of the Resistance to SB1070-BS

Now demand that the President and the Congress order an immediate Freeze on all deportation proceedings as they are tainted under political Imprisonment and racial discrimination.

All immigrant detainees must be granted immediate free bail and allowed To reunite with their families until an unbiased court can determine their status.

All illegal drugs must now become legal to stop Cartels and smuggling.

Sherrif Arpaio’s Tent cities prisons in Arizona must be SHUT DOWN due toHealth hazards and unlawful profiling and segregation. An early release program is to be implemented by the county.

The rest of sb1070 in force is to be halted - effective immediately
because you cannot tell people In a free country who they can associate with , or get into a car with. That Is totalitarianism all real American citizens must reject including
the Supreme Court Justice System.

Dump Brewer- an unelected plant.


Charles   July 29th, 2010 9:10 pm ET

@Cajazz,
Are you aware of the number of states who want to implement the same law Arizona has? There is really no value to value to criticizing Fox. Regardless of your politics, there are more Americans in favor of this law than not. OK, you don't want each state taking charge. Why aren't you then asking your federal government to do something. There seems to be a lot of bashing the conservative party instead of putting forth the manner in which this should be handled.

@Smith in Oregon,
You seem just to have a problem with any money spent by the Republican administration. Shouldn't the concern be how much we are spending. Obama, too, has spent much too much.


herman   July 29th, 2010 9:12 pm ET

Governor

You are beginning to sound a lot like Sarah Palin. Not a lot of explanation for your stance on immagration other than "Government do your job".


big homie   July 29th, 2010 9:12 pm ET

Larry what happened to give us your tired, pour huddled masses yearning to breath free. I am apposed to this law cause there is racial profialing, and anyone who tells you that there isn't, is not blk, or hispanic. This new law gives the police new ways to limit our civil liberties. POWER TO THE PEOPLE


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:13 pm ET

@ Monreoe H Federal government not ignoring the law Obama administration deport nearly 400 000 illegal immigrants better than what Bush and Cheney did


Goldie McDowell   July 29th, 2010 9:16 pm ET

hurray for Gov, Jan Brewer if she was running for Gov. in Calif she woul have my vote We need tighter security on our borders. Most of the Drugs and crime come out of mexico If they want to stay here ,learn how to speak engish, pay taxes, and don't drain our system, and the money you make here stays here dont send it back to Mexico, I'm rired of paying for these people. GOOD JOB GOV.BREWER


chaney, La.   July 29th, 2010 9:17 pm ET

Laura Ingraham has got to be joking.....I am sorry but she is out of her league, and needs to stay on Fox...... is she funny? No.


Smith in Oregon   July 29th, 2010 9:17 pm ET

Laura Ingraham's spin on Obama, the Latino's are looking twice now at the Obama Administration.

Considering the racist push by the Republican Potty'ticians to deport Hispanic baby's born in America to the Mexican border and harass brown skinned American's, the only spin that is remotely accurate Laura Ingraham is that Hispanics are in mass registering with the Democratic party to get rid of the Republican Potty'ticians entirely.


Larry   July 29th, 2010 9:17 pm ET

Dear Larry Please asj laura if she and Fox news will ever not be the spawn of SATAN...I'm serious...!


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 9:17 pm ET

Her book Obama Diaries is FAKE SATIRE...AND HAS DROPPED TO NUMBER 22 on NYT bestseller list..Guarantee she will leave to hanging believing it's REAL...


Two Heart   July 29th, 2010 9:18 pm ET

HMMMMMM. Weapons of mass destruction. That seems like a lie.....


Jerry Sun   July 29th, 2010 9:18 pm ET

The conversation about the diary is so nonsense and stupid!
get off the stage ... please
pls retire before it is too LATE.
stop making fool yourself.
at least you can go home to fool around your wife's sister....
Gee


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:19 pm ET

Why conservative attacking Obama appearing in the view what about G.W.Bush appeared in Dr.Phill show in 2004 sorry he was getting help from Doctor


brad byers   July 29th, 2010 9:20 pm ET

What's with Laura Ingram attempting to mock a black man (Obama) in her interpretation of his voice while reading an excerpt from her book?
Ingram is a serious racist – don't kid yourself.


ben Padar   July 29th, 2010 9:20 pm ET

I think she's ridiculous. almost as bad as Coulter. Does she actually think we're better off with Bush? I'm guessing she's more worried about how much she pays in taxes than anything else.


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

She is jealous of beautiful family


lou   July 29th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

honestly this is the most pathetic show ive ever seen. cnn should be totally disgraced to have laura ingram on and give her a platform to push her craziness unchecked. she is ridiculous and so is the right wing for thinking people will believe their b.s. honestly, cnn is the weakest most journalistically shallow network ive ever seen. giving ingram a platform like this and letting her distort reality unchecked is like signing off on misinformation and using your network to do it. cnn is weak and i hope your network eventually fails cause you only make the misinformation campaign that the right wing perpetrates on the american people easier. a total disgrace.....


Smith in Oregon   July 29th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

@ Charles, yes I have a problem with the Republican administration of Bush-Cheney giving billions of taxpayer dollars to a known sponsor of State Terrorism (Pakistan) who in turn gave those billions of American taxpayer dollars to a known terrorist organization Pakistan's ISI who used that same money to enlist, equip and train suicide bombers to murder American and NATO solders. To purchase heat seeking shoulder anti-aircraft missiles which have killed more American and NATO troops in any single single day in the Afghanistan war. That seems fine and OK to you, not to me.

Go figure!


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:24 pm ET

Who tore our economy Bush, Cheney and Karl Rove


Charles   July 29th, 2010 9:24 pm ET

@Smith in Oregon,
Don't put words in people's mouths. Can you send me the quote where I said "it was fine with me." AGAIN, I said Obama spends too much.


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

@ Art John Mc Cain is an old soldier that needs to pass the sword .


s hutchinson   July 29th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

Laura Ingram sounds like a very petty person and I refuse to spend one more min watching Larry King as he allows her to spew her hateful thoughts.


Keith   July 29th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

Laura Ingrahm has just demonstrated on Larry King , that she's a racist. She mimiced Michelle Obama , using a racist stereotype.


art   July 29th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

The criminals who should be deported from Arizona, and elsewhere in this country are the business owners who pay illegal wages (beneath minimum wage) under the table.

This whole thing is a dog n' pony show to buy time for the wealthy elite in Arizona. Their Bush tax cuts are about to expire.


Jim   July 29th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Look, give me a break. This seems like a setup and has the gull to talk about taxes when all of her rich buddies get a tax break.

This is a scam and Larry should be above this. Give me a break.


Marie   July 29th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Ms.. Ingraham, I wish you were funny with your so called little diary but so far Iam not laughing. Where were you when Bush was president now that was funny. Sweetie get another JOB. by the way The president does not sound like that.


Larry   July 29th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Turning you off now Larry Bye...!!!


Julie   July 29th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Loud mouth Laura has one agenda racial division, hatred , bigotry and last but not least a LIAR she must be white and a REPULSICAN.


balaus   July 29th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

as a southerner with off the wall opinions an a f u atitude i even find it weird to see this woman read letters from our first woman and have to hide her vocalization of "black dialect" while reading the letter. I myself while telling stories with souther country blacks find myself doing the same thing and its not outa respect. i myself thinks ms obama is very articulate.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Can't take a chance and listen to LKL tonght. Listening to Laura Ingraham is like have a chain saw biting at the back of my head..


Linda Perkins   July 29th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Michele Obama hasn't been elected to any office. To say that she shouldn't take a vacation with her daughter and friends to Spain is RIDICULOUS!!! I think it's wonderful that she is spending time with her daughter and friends. She has a very stressful and busy life. Children grow up fast. Laura ingraham needs to get a life. She is so utterly pathetic.


Henry   July 29th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Stict to writing and stay off the tube. You are not funny, even though she sounds like Ethel Mertz from the "Honeymooners"


Gwalker   July 29th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

I'm tired of kooks being given free air time to display their stupidity. I had to turn the channel. How disrespectful can these idiots get? And the people who actually believe them, omg!. Larry, you can do so much better than give this person the time of day.


Lorie Davis   July 29th, 2010 9:27 pm ET

Larry....very disappointing that you would allow Laura Ingram to use her rendition of a "black voice" in discussing Michelle Obama's multiple trips. She's a racist and that was obvious tonight!


Smith in Oregon   July 29th, 2010 9:27 pm ET

Laura Ingraham didn't publicly criticize Bush-Cheney on illegal immigration Larry, demand proof and ask Laura to back that statement up. Don't let her just spew out falsehoods Larry, challenge her! Bush-Cheney largely sit on the illegal immigration situation which the Republican Potty'titicans are acting up about now in their crass and callous attempts to polarize America. Laura Ingraham America doesn't want your Jim Crow laws and your racist attitude is offensive!


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:27 pm ET

Ha Ha Lorrie you are are some lady kick some butt .


Lauren   July 29th, 2010 9:27 pm ET

Kudos to Gov. Brewer for her courage and strength in standing up for Americans on this issue. I am not against immigration by any means; we are a nation of immigrants. But these ILLEGAL aliens have broken our laws–period the end. What rights should they have to be protected under OUR constitution? Obama should get the troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq and put them on the borders protecting America's borders. And I am outraged that this judge has struck down any aspect of this Arizona law? I have been a democrat for almost 40 years, and I am ashamed at what is going on. If Gov. Brewer wants to run for President, I would vote for her in a heart beat and that would be the first time I have ever voted republican.


Jeffrey   July 29th, 2010 9:27 pm ET

Why does Larry have Laura ingraham on the show? She seems pretty unaware of what's going on in the world and seems to just babble.


Kevin Fleming   July 29th, 2010 9:27 pm ET

Please get that hater off the air. Laura Ingram will do anything to sell a book. She's iIrrelevant and ignorant.


Mary Dunaway   July 29th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

Laura Ingraham's commentary is so stupid. A president is not the savior of this United States. He is a leader and works with others to get the job done. Folks like her that show ignorance and a lack of reality is sickening. She is a joke and her book is too.

Get someone on with real opinions that matter and is that is factual!


Carmen Lucas   July 29th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

Laura Ingraham, what an ignorant witch! Could only listen to a couple of minutes of her ridiculous banter. She should reverse her sex change surgery and go back to being a man. Ombama Diaries? Sad.


ann   July 29th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

Lou ..you are so right...!!!!!!not popular in Washington ..Laura your are totally off your rocker!! Larry did she not listen to anything you said about the Bush adminstration ?? no she is as stupid as Sarah Palin ..not even knowing that Hawaii is the biggest island?? lol these women are a disgrace to our gender..


chaney, La.   July 29th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

I dont need Laura Ingraham to tell me what I think, and what the American people [of which I am one] want and dont want..... it might behoove her to know that President Obama won the election, meaning Conservatives lost......a fact they just cant come to grips with........


K. Burke   July 29th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

THIS WOMAN IS BEYOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOND ANNOYING. we literally cannot listen to her. is the supposed to be funny, timely, what? you cannot tell. Does not matter, Left or Right, she is so annoying you can't tell what her message is


Gary Lilley   July 29th, 2010 9:29 pm ET

i suspect most intelligent people listen to her as much as they do Rush Linbaugh which is not at all


alan in Miami   July 29th, 2010 9:29 pm ET

Larry, how can you have this lady on TV?

Speaking of white lies and speaking in an african-american accent is completely unacceptable.

The Obamas (as much as I agree and disagree) have lived the the american dream of family, house, education and career.

It is a shame you would give time to this non-sense. Come on.


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:29 pm ET

She wrote Obama diary so she is following Obama closely that mean she like him


Kent Howerton   July 29th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

I just listened. What a load. She has no idea what's going on in the world.


rj   July 29th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

I'm glad that no one with any sense listens to laura ingraham spewing hogwash, i think alot of people turn away from cable news because of peole that. Our country is in enough trouble already.I hope she can get sued ofr slander.


nicole   July 29th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

I am just watching the show now, hearing laura ingraham, reading an excerpt from her book, "the obama diaries"...When she read in Michelle Obama's point -of-view, i noticed her reading like she was trying to mimic a stereo-typical black woman. She even put her hand on her hip, and even rolled her neck. I don't know if this was for comedic purposes...(not funny), but it seemed like there were a lot of racial overtones. I hope she's not trying to do this , but nonetheless, i am offended. Pretty disrespectful on her part though.


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:31 pm ET

Larua your great I love this the truth shall set us all free .


Agnes Hromyak   July 29th, 2010 9:31 pm ET

Larry: Your guest tonight, Laura Ingraham is such a twit, Who died and made her Queen. When George W. Bush took this country to the
brink of disaster, she only can criticize a President who is trying to
bring it back, it will take a lot of time and hard work, She has no
sense of what the lower income people of this country are going thru.
She isn;'t worth having on ANY talk show with her drivel.


Sherry   July 29th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

How did you guys manage to find another Sarah Palin. This woman is clueless and offensive. She portrays the President and First Lady as a couple ignorant black people. Nothing she read was funny at all she need another profession.


kate   July 29th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

I can't believe CNN would give air time to Laura Ingram's book where she mocks the presidency. Is she kidding? Her attempt at imitating Michelle Obama was racist and lacking good taste. She is hate-filled and is not deserving of air time. The interview was so disturbing, I thought for sure I was mistakenly on FOX. For the first time ever I changed the channel from Larry King. I am rethinking my support for CNN


Robert L. Nalducci   July 29th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

How can anyone beiieve any thing that Laura Ingraham is reading from this supposed diary (s). Do you truly believe when someone keeps a diary that they write inflections sush as "ahhhhhhhh". She's full of it. Unbelieveable – gag me with a spoon,
Robert fro Marin County Califirnia.


Barbara J Hatcher   July 29th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

I am more than tired of all these racists. I am American and support the President but according to these illogical conservatives I am not. They need to pray because of their unChristianly behavior.


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:33 pm ET

You hate Obama accept that


ckesling   July 29th, 2010 9:33 pm ET

@ brad byers... i picked up her mocking of the president of the u.s. the only time laura opens her mouth is to change feet !!!! typical fox news mouthpiece !!! she is right up there with sean hannity and glen beck... the three stooges !!!


Rosa   July 29th, 2010 9:33 pm ET

Mr. King: Who cut loose this woman?
Is she simply ignorant or mentally derailed?
We should be proud of a President who has the integrity to say "I am sorry."


roxane penfound   July 29th, 2010 9:33 pm ET

please tell me why you people or so hard on obma, look what bush has done to everybody in 8 years but yet you critize what obama has done in 18 mths please give the man a chance you must remmber when anybody gets higher up in their job their ego does grow but he will come down to earth again and will do the job he was hired for


Johnny   July 29th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

I am really troubled that you allow your guests to constantly insult the PRESIDENT of the United States and the First Lady of the United States. His name is President Obama not Barack –and in this counrty we normally refer to the wife of the PRESIDENT as First Lady or Mrs. Obama. Shame on you and CNN. Won't be watching in the future - I am tried of the constant complaints about our President – comparing him to some of the most notorious is one of the worst insult that anyone can do. How can he LEAD among other leaders with people like the ones you interview–


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

The applause in the back ground is really wierd for serious stuff .


tope   July 29th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

Laura Ingram is just a cheap and talentless person trying to rake in some fame and fortune with this stupid Obama diary issues. What did Bush do about immigration for 8 years? Now its Obama's fault.


Dodie   July 29th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

@ Michael... (( Veritas vos liberabit )) lol


Judy Bramley   July 29th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

I am astonished at the blatant hubris of Laura Ingraham to claim to quote from Michelle Obama's diary, in such an insulting and shameful mocking tone. I cannot imagine our First Lady uttering such nonsense muchless thinking it. What sleeveless wants sleeveless gets? She embarrasses herself with such incredible ignorant comments. I will now look up her qualifications to make such judgments. I am appalled to think that our news world has a podium for such mean spirited, erroneous dialogue. Don't have her on the show again. I won't watch.


Charles   July 29th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

@Linda Perkins,
I think the criticism was that we are paying for all of these vacations.

@Jude Green,
A little like Michael Moore don't you think!


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

@Charles

I do my homework...It is the Conservative Party that is the problem...My finger tips are calloused from talking about immigration reform last night. Fox News is a right wing tool because they know that there is a large market available to them by the dunderheads that believe what they say as true..it's HYPE...Just as Laura Ingraham's book is FICTION...it is FAKE satire...Do you believe what she states is real? Come on Charles...


Beverly   July 29th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

Why does Laura have such an attitude all of a sudden?


Sharon   July 29th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

What a loser. Some people would do anything to get face on T.V. show Larry you can do better than More honest people.


Mike   July 29th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

If Ms. Ingram feels so inbued with knowledge and vision about how the presidency why has she not ran for president?

Does Ms. Ingram recognize that she does not speak for millions of americans?


Michelle   July 29th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

Laura's sachasm and smugniss is disgusting. She is the one that is not patriotic and does not back up her statements. She makes me sick.


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

We need for our laws to be up held until there changed .


Dresden   July 29th, 2010 9:36 pm ET

The governor of Arizona has gravely contradicted her own campaign. When asked what she intends to do the millions if illegals already within her state she claims that she "isn't prepared to deal with that until the federal government secures the national border." BUT YET she has taken it into her own hands to personally impune of the basic human rights of those exact people, rather than actually allowing President Obama to do his job. If she can't pinpoint her own position in this debate, its difficult to take her seriously or believe she has any real motivation behind her agenda other than jumping on this racial propoganda bandwagon that has rolled through this country..


saulchapa   July 29th, 2010 9:36 pm ET

pure crap!thats what laura ingraham spouts


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:36 pm ET

How state take the federal law in their hand s so can we take state law in our hands will state accept that


Julie   July 29th, 2010 9:36 pm ET

Yes, the law in arizona is is INSIDIOUS, INSENSITIVE and VISICOUS the trademark of REPUBLICANS


David LEvenson   July 29th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

I emailed the whitehouse on march 17th 2010. I told the President to spend more time with his kids and if he made his family a priority everything would fall into place. The next day he cancelled his trip to australia and Indonesia. A few days later a company called ICU Wireless showed up behind my house. They sold car stereos and cell phones. A week prior to emailing the whitehouse i emailed my father and told him i was going to pay my own cell phone bill. I also had a picture of car stereo i wanted to buy on my cell phone. I have filed FOIAs to the National Reconnasince office and the Defense security service and both have said they have classified files on me. Other agencies are citing my FOIAs are not perfected. What should i do?


Ned   July 29th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

The real info that cnn needs about Laura Ingraham is that when she is on, I change the channel.


nicole   July 29th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

Laura Ingraham doesn't like democrats, especially black presidents. She's complaining about obama hasn't really done anything ( i disagree) she fails to say that republicans fight against obama's policies and that's why change is slow to come. She won't even admit that obama has done a lot of things right. I don't believe she is very honest.


Dodie   July 29th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

@Cajazz76:24:8 July 29th, 2010 7:10 pm ET

Sounds like they could use a good calculator or nimble fingers... possibly a fluxuating mind?


Jan in California   July 29th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

I thought Laura should rename her book ... "The Book of Lies" ... Her Lies ... Have to laugh ... she has hit bottom people !!!


Sue   July 29th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

I agree with the Governor of Arizona. The law is the law. Since when do we get to chose which laws we want to obey. I don't care if the "Illegal person" has been here 40 seconds or 40 years, they knew they were breaking the law when they came across that border. And as for any children, once they have become 18, which many have been here that long, there is "no reason" for them to not apply for citizenship and become legal. In the mean time you go back to your country and wait. That is NOT discriminating against anyone, it is simply enforcing the boder laws that are already in place. I know if I go to another country, I need a passport and "MUST" have it with me while I am there. They should have their papers with them. And since when do "Illegals " have rights over TAX PAYING CITIZENS. I say send them all back and if they want to apply for citizenship, they can apply and wait their turn. Our ancesters followed the law and legal immigrants have too. We better not give a slap on the wrist and let them all stay. Then our laws mean nothing and the world is watching. Another concern are these pregnant women waiting at the border until they go in labor then crossing. We, the Taxpayers then also get hit with the medical bills. No child born like that should be considered an American. And if they are then the baby can stay and get placed for adoption and the parent goes back and applies for citizenship like everyone else. I am fed up with our politicans putting blinders on. To sum this up, we need to follow the law and secure our borders. This should have NEVER created such a debate. Don't Americans have any rights any more? Oh, and by the way I love it when they say they are doing jobs no American would do. Look around, how many Americans do you see unemployed. The people who hire them need to be fined for hiring illegals and they need to pay the minimun wage, not below it to entice illegals to come here and increase their profit. I guess that is it, I am just so frustrated with our country. We are so worried about being politically correct that we have forgotten our laws, and Americans rights.


KATHLEEN IN IOWA   July 29th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

LAURA, your criticism of Michelle's campaign against childhood obesity lacks foresight about our country's health care crises. Diabetes and its' related conditions is bankrupting our health care and childhood diabetes is at epidemic levels.
I appreciate that Michelle has the foresight to tackle something that makes a difference.


steve in philly   July 29th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

Larry WHAT ABOUT THOSE WHO DO IT LEGALLY...what are you saying to us. Should we all just come in illegally?? If laws are not enforced why follow them?? This is a disgrace to all immigrants who came to this country LEGALLY AND IT IS WRONG!


Dan   July 29th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

What's up with the applause track for this fascist lady?


Dan   July 29th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

It is funny that the in the Chicago Sun times the president said he is like us and has financial set backs like his college fund took a hit, well I did not make 1.4 million last year and I sure can not afford to go to Spain for some time with my family I struggle each day so who is he kidding. My pension was froze at 840 a month what is the president going to get for 4 years. lets see him live on what we have to


Gary   July 29th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

Just got home and turned you on to see this women who seems to have no idea about how the government works. The first thing I heard was Obama is our chief law enforcement official. Has she never heard about the judicial branch. I realize I am just tuning in but she seemed just to be Obama bashing and looking for an argument to get her five minutes of fame. Why bother giving it to her.


Terry   July 29th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

Is there any way you can stick a sock in Laura's mouth so that someone else can talk?


jpo   July 29th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

I can not believe this woman has the gall to speak about our president in this way! What is even more unbelievable is that she actually has followers that believe the garbage she spews every day! Let's talk about real issues, instead of mocking our commander in chief. When she has something real to say, then I'll listen.


maryln48   July 29th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

She reminds me of Coulton, just critizing our president. I don't see how that is pratriotic, what a waste of money for whoever buys that silly book. I am sure I will see it at the yard sales like I see all the other books like O'Rielys, Hannity and Rove books. Save your money people and try to respect our leader. Sometimes I wish we were like other countries and could shut these people up that just spread hate and anger at a time when we should be concentrating on helping each other get our of the rut the Republicans put us in. I think it's racist, jealosy, and disrespectful to our country.


Concepcion   July 29th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

Ms. Ingraham is so despicable. She obviously needs to be on t.v. (who's the narcissist) and she must need money desperately. How can she, as an american citizen, publish personal journals from our president and his wife and v.p. You bring shame to our country, and therefore, it's a shame that we allow someone like you to reside in America and exploit our right to freedom of speech.


Riacko   July 29th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

If this is the kind of crap you have to offer, it's good news that you're calling it quits. You've become Larry Springer!


Kenneth   July 29th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

Larry, one or worst shows!!! Laura horrible.
I cannot watch her idiotic comments! To
Trash his wife is below the belt. I despise
Anything from Fox News!! No way are they
Fair and balanced! It is a shame that one
American would take that Laura Ingraham
Seriously and even buy one copy
Of her book. I can't stand to ever look at her.
Make sure she reads this!


Mary Lamon   July 29th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

Why is this woman I(ngraham) featured? She was horrible on the View the other day. Please don't repeat her again.


Joe LaCorte   July 29th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

My family came from Italy to the US 3 generations ago, The "Illegal Immigrants" you're talking about are indigenous to the land, maybe we're the illegal Immigrants!


Susan   July 29th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

Laura Ingraham is right on! I worked in a democratic office here in Ohio over 42 years. I changed parties because of Obama! He is a very evil person and is controlled by a very powerful group of bankers.
God help us all if he should remain in office!

Susan in Ohio


ruby   July 29th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

Laura sure does make conservatist look bad!


C.G.Simon   July 29th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

I tried to email to Laura personally on her web page, but she only accepts emails from those that pay for a membership. No doubt she only receives positive emails. I disagree with her position on President Obama's apologies to other countries. It takes a big man to apologize for his mistakes. It takes an extreme patriot to love your country, while acknowledging that America is not perfect. It is easier to trust a person and/or a country that is willing to admit and apologize for their mistakes. Only petty or delusional persons think that to admit and apologize for mistakes is a sign of weakness.


Norman W. Walker   July 29th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

Sorry Larry I love your show neve miss you but tonight I turn you off went to TV Land, you should never invite that silly lady (LAURA) back I'll be back with your show on Friday. Thanks


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

These old goats are dropping like fly's im just glad the draft is off the table and this is nothing like mrs. Sherrod you dimwitt .


Ann   July 29th, 2010 9:41 pm ET

laura ingraham is right wing nut. Not worth watching. I will call to my
cable company to get my money back for time wasted on air .


JIM CARROLL   July 29th, 2010 9:41 pm ET

Is is the best you can do Larry?


Steve   July 29th, 2010 9:41 pm ET

How is this supposed to be an even debate, when you have a literal cheering section for Laura, and nothing for the other side?


bobby vance   July 29th, 2010 9:41 pm ET

hey laura.. my highest praise to you.we need to send what belongs in mexico back to mexico and what belongs in kenya back to kenya


esau rodriguez   July 29th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

The law in Arizona is okay. Immigrants made this country what it is. I am Hispanic, but I find it unfair because I crossed the border to come live off of welfare and everything else that our taxes take care of and those real hard working Americans cannot even get help if they needed it. I live in Texas, and all I see is the illegal immigrants with a baby on their arm, a baby walking behind them, and and bulge in their belly. I also have an aunt that lives in Matamoros but she cannot come over here because she is trying to go through the red tape or as I call it the correct way. If you are doing the right thing and have your stuff in order why worry. If not then there is a problem. If you want to be here, get your things in order and do it right.


Stephen, Columbia, SC   July 29th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

Larry,

Why is debate over the Arizona immigration law not dealing with the lack of enforcement of the law for employers to not employ illegal residents? We are avoiding the issue of the employers hiring illegal residents.


Jose A Melendez   July 29th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

If Arizona is correct will the northen states follow with laws for the canadians, for that border is doning the same as the south.
Now they will be stopping and checking white looking poeple and arresting them. Is this the same for all?


Stacy   July 29th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

Laura is the most racist, rude, jealous teabagger. She is flocked by a crowd of racists supporters, and it is unfair that she is allowed to interrupt the counter host as she is repeatedly doing. Her views are typical of the teabaggers, and I have screamed at my tv screen all through this show, wishing I had a chance to tell her face to face how I feel. She is divisive and racist, and she is a nothing piece of nastiness as far as Obama supporters are concerned. We still and will continue to support him, in spite of all the hate and bigotry from the teabaggers. She is extremely jealous of Michelle OBama, while not paying attention to former First Lady, Laura Bush, and the move Mrs. Bush tried to lead, rather than focus on Michelle Obama. And just for the record, when Michelle travels to Spain with her daughter, she pays for the trip with her own money. Her husband is the president, she is not, so she is free to go whereever she wants, Keep trash like Laura OFF of the show, she is reeking of trailor trash. She can speak with Palin and continue to divide the country.


Jaimie   July 29th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

I was so offended by Laura Ingraham's 'impersonation' of Michelle Obama on your show tonight. She is a total racist!


Ken Woods   July 29th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

I found Laura Ingram acting like a stereotype of black women, while pretending to be Michello Obama, had serious racial overtones and was in very poor taste. I guess she is trying to be the next Ann Coulter!!


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

The democrats have held the majority of the house for almost two years and dropped the ball in there own party .


M ROMERO   July 29th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

Why is it EVERY time someone speaks out against President Obama or his family...wow its RACISM!!! NOOO she shouldn't go overseas to see the Lion King...Why couldn't they do that when they lived in Illlinois....I would love to have ONE pay check of what they have spent in this past year! I want him to live on my measly VA pay check! yes mr president swap pay and benefits with me and my family for a few mons! LET ME AND MY FAMILY TAKE THOSE VACATIONS!! =Oh yes I have an Aunt that lives in NC mr president, please tell me why during elections your people went to her "poor" hispanic community and told them that they would give them a ride to and from the polls IF ....IF they voted for Mr. Obama!! yes little things like that! but YOU don't want anyone speaking neg about you or your family!! WE ALL HAVE AT ONE POINT OR ANOTHER HAVE HAD NEGATIVE STATEMENTS.....


Dodie   July 29th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

I wonder how much the corporations have given Laura Ingraham financially or in "perks"


carol marks   July 29th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

this guest you have "laura" is the first person that has saqid what I scream at the tv all day WHAT PART OF ILLEGAL DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND!!!!!!inforce the policies we have and if you are a undocumented person you do not belong here


Diane   July 29th, 2010 9:44 pm ET

Laura Ingraham has a voice that make me appreciate I have a mute button.


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:44 pm ET

Nancy Pelosi is good house speaker show help to pass many legislations

What is wrong with Laura she doesn’t like woman


Jennifer   July 29th, 2010 9:44 pm ET

Seriously, how does Laura Ingraham get so much time on LKL? Can someone please cut the signal – between her annoying voice and her stupidity its hard to decide what is worse. What exactly does she offer – except a mean spirited perspective, its so weak in substance it does nothing to progress any fruitful debate... i'm bored and annoyed.


chaney, La.   July 29th, 2010 9:44 pm ET

People are people, Democrats, republicans ... Laura is Like Anne Coulter just over talk, out talk and think youve won the argument.....or is she thinking she"s funny.... or is she playing to the crowd of "fair and Biased" people behind her.


Ed   July 29th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

Please explain this excerpt from the usconstitution.net site.

Article III, Section 2, clause 2:

In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction.

This appears to indicate that a District Court Judge has no standing in the Arizona law case. Only the Supreme Court has jurisdiction, hence the term "original".


Franklin.S.Samuel   July 29th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

It looks like Laura Ingram has her ass in the wrong place.People like Laura Ingram is worse than Taliban to the good will of this greatest Nation.It is the People elected this Government and she has no respect for the people of this nation.if I find some ones Diary the courteous thing is to return the personal belonging to the right-ful owner.Trying to write a book to make millions at the expense of the President of this country that is disrespect to the people of this country and detrimental to this nation.
This is ugly violent and detrimental to this nation at this juncture where the country and the whole world needs the respect of America the greatest and the most powerful Government.We had a mess in the past for where the country is today.Please support the legally elected Government.Don't be a Racist Tea Party group like Laura Ingram who analyzes things through the wrong end.
I like to know how qualified miss Ingram is how she is in the place where she is to Represent the people of this nation.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

I am just guessing that Larry may find it a bit difficult to get a word in when Laura talks...


Diane   July 29th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

Laura Ingraham's voice makes me wonder why she is a radio host or a guest on this show.


Nicole Littlejohn   July 29th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

Will someone get this Laura Ingrahmn lady some sex. She seems as dry and incompetent as many of her comments.


Susan   July 29th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

Upon reading the other comments on your site , I feel so sorry for this country. WHAT A BUNCH OF SHEEP! If Obama says to take the mark, you all would bend over backwards and take it!

Open your eyes and see what is happening to this country! Obama is a sock puppet controlled by the "Corporations".


Jan in California   July 29th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

Jan Brewer really skirted a lot of questions tonight ... and she smiled too much ... Almost as if she doesn't take herself seriously ... I certainly didn't take her seriously because ... she hinted "We are throwing the baby out with the bath water" and that is all there is to it!! ... Jan has no resolve for the problem that she has just instigated ... Maybe the local police should arrest her under suspicion of being an alien from another planet ... She certainly does not act human enough to be ehre on this earth ... Even on TV she comes off quite Draconian ... thought I would share ...


Julie   July 29th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

Laura remember BUSH & CHENEY and the lies that kill so many other peoples children AMERICAN CHILDREN, how did not hear your loud mouth then. THE IRAQ WAR WAS BASED ON A LIE that destroyed and KILL MANY PEOPLE HERE AND ABROAD.


Charles   July 29th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

@Julie,
It's not just Republicans. The majority of Independents and Republicans support the bill. There are more independents than there are Democrats and Republicans, thus it appears overall more people support it than now. We talk about lack of bipartisanship in Washington. If we look at ourselves, we should not have to wonder why. No one wants to give the party to which they do not belong a break or even acknowledge a rational point of view on anything.


jim   July 29th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

The biggest problem with the Charlie Rangle stpry is in the first line of every story about this issue...that being..."Charlie Rangle the TWENTY TERM Congressman"...we need term limits and campaign reform NOW!!!!


Cheryl Hampton   July 29th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

I can't believe that Laura Ingraham is allowed to speak on Larry King's show let alone anywhere! Her voice is horrible – she sounds like she is talking through her nose with a clip over it. Stop allowing her kind to appear on CNN. She is a bad example for anyone to associate with and she needs to leave our President and First Lady alone and worry about getting her attitude corrected.


Douglas cohen   July 29th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

President Obama has Time to go on the view but not to meet up with 50000 boyscouts that he was scheduled to speak with at the boyscouts 100 th anniversary of scouting in Virginia. Shameful and disappointing.


robin in georgia   July 29th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

Why is she even on CNN, this is really disappointing. CNN used be the best place to turn for real political issuse not people spewing disgusting lies and demeaning our president ELECT and the first lady. Wow, am I watching FOX NEWS? Where is Glen Beck? I didnt hear any of these comments with racial undertones and gestures when the bushs were in the white house, WOW how the republicans have fell.


Gwalker   July 29th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

I hope Larry hear the clicking of remote controls across the country. It is shows like this that make intelligent people vomit.


Colleen Nagel   July 29th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

Come on Larry King; where is your credibility? Giving Laura Ingaham a forum to promote her made-up Obama diary is an insult to your viewers and it should be to yourself as well. What were you thinking?


Bradley Dennis   July 29th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

I'm watching Larry King Live as usual, but I'm finding that I'm changing the channel quite often to temporarily get away from Dr. Laura. I enjoy a good debate, but that is not what's happening tonight. She is not debating, she in interrupting! If she would keep her mouth shut for a minute, we might get to hear someone else's opinion!


Susan   July 29th, 2010 9:48 pm ET

Regardless of her jaded and ego-fueled "commentary", Laura Ingraham is simply an idiotic, insensitive and offensive woman. She should not be allowed on any public news or information source, as her negativity is irrelevant and simply fuels fires that we don't need. As a country, we need to focus on positive change, rather than making ourselves as individuals famous by being contrarian. She is awful to listen to and is simply trying to attract attention with her flip, brash and annoying comments, as with her blindingly flamboyant bright pink shirt and lipstick!


Charles   July 29th, 2010 9:48 pm ET

@Dodie,
Rest assured, corporations are not supporting Laura Ingraham. Other than water cooler talk, her name would never be mentioned.


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:48 pm ET

Racism is still in question because we refuse to let it fade away .


Rick Bailey   July 29th, 2010 9:48 pm ET

I will turn off CNN the next time I see Laura Ingraham. I watch Larry every day. I did not know Laura before today. But I never saw such a disrepectful commentator on Larry King Live. It was very offensive how she talked over the top of her debator and even talked over Larry. I suggest you never invite her back.


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:49 pm ET

My grandma enjoyed the view today two days back she didn’t like Obama appearing in view truble of republicans


Vicki Levy-Magana   July 29th, 2010 9:49 pm ET

I can usually turn this pundits off, but this woman is so outrageous. Her book is a disgrace. Who is she to put words in the presidents mouth. The president and Machelle speak for me as an American here and abroad. Not Ms. Ingram and I resent her presuming to do so. Tax writing comm. Does she mean ways and means? Sorry for getting off the point. Is there a reason why she can't have an intelligent discourse on facts instead of irrelevant thing like trips overseas and vacations. Which the Obamas could well afford on their own, but at this in their life they life they happen to live in the White House with their kids.


JohnPaul   July 29th, 2010 9:49 pm ET

Where is the true conservative argument that is the answer to "securing the border?" The grandstanding on fear and xenophobia is not an answer to securing our nation. Truly securing the border is opening up to the idea of an ID card for everyone, including natural born American citizens. Let's start with a national driver's license format, then a national ID card that isn't a passport, or require passports for any person crossing any border. Walls and stupid "enforcement" of fear and ignorance won't protect us from Timothy McVeigh or any militant with a plane who can fly into a building even if that person is Mormon. Stop with the hate on Muslims and Latinos in a country where yes, the founding fathers were apologists to religious freedom..... oh, that's right! That was intended! Sorry, if you want a Christian nation, you'll need to go and start one. America is a place of religous freedom, not religious entrapment into Christiandom or else! Christians are as welcome here as Muslims. That's the America the wrld loves. The dark ages are over. That was the very purpose of the American Revolution. Soldiers are not dying for us here in this nation for our Christianity, but for our religious freedom, otherwise, they are confused and lost. Our President is the strongest leader the world has ever known precisely because he understands this.


greg   July 29th, 2010 9:50 pm ET

laura is 100% right. AZ. is doing what our gov. will not do. It's pretty sad when our gov. fights against a state in this country.


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:50 pm ET

The Indians should deport us all .


Beverly   July 29th, 2010 9:50 pm ET

I've been listening to Laura speak her peace. I would be interested in knowing if Laura has given any thought to running for the Office of the President of the United States?

Since, Laura is making a case that everything is worse under the Obama Administration, maybe, Laura would consider stepping up to the plate and running for Office of the President, instead of doing what many do, talk,, criticize, talk and criticize some more.

What does she plan to do with the money she makes from the book, Obama Diaries? Maybe she could donate the money to create new jobs.

Also, she seems to be the only one on the show with a negative attitude. Please ask her to if she could tone that down just a little.

I would really appreciate it if she would show the same respect to Mark that she has shown to Larry King. Maybe, she should review the show and take a look at her behavoir and listen to her comments.

I hope I do not see Laura on The View any time soon.


Julie   July 29th, 2010 9:51 pm ET

LAURA you are a RACIST and you kown it, OWN IT did you forget your white hood.


Robert Cole   July 29th, 2010 9:51 pm ET

I cannot believe that Columbia University would have a professor like
Mark teaching our young people .


vy   July 29th, 2010 9:51 pm ET

maybe i've been living under a rock, i thought laura Ingraham is from "little house on the prairie" ..she said "it's the law to carry a green card everywhere..are you kidding me you know how hard it is to get a replacement card if you happened to loose it..it's worse than getting a driver's license..having worked in immigration office and "used to be an alien" we guard it like "gold"...i'm switching channel it's getting way too heated...ihave no idea who saying what...


rosemary   July 29th, 2010 9:51 pm ET

Laura ingraham doesn't get it ,Cnn need to interview people who get's it ...


Stacy   July 29th, 2010 9:51 pm ET

It is obvious that she cannot take the fact that our president is beautiful, and she is not, (in spite of the fact that she is a woman) - he is intelligent, and she is not, he is extremely educated, articulate, calm, cool, and collective, and regardless of how negatively racists attack him, he does not react. This incites them incredibly because they cannot figure out how it is that they can't rile HIM up, so this Laura racist attacks his wife. Laura obviously doesn't accept the facts - She is racist, racist, and ignorant. She is constantly interrupting the host - she shows her ignorance over and over. Clearly, she is the ultimate racist, and I wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't pull out her KKK robe and hood as soon as the cameras are off of her.


angelia   July 29th, 2010 9:51 pm ET

Laura and the rest of america needs to get over the fact that President Obama is who and what he is and when he wakes up in the morning, he is going to be the person he looks at in the mirror. Let's bring back all the dead soldiers who was murdered in a senseless war, all of the dead and remaining victims of hurricane-totally unnecessary, create more jobs-better yet, end discrimination when these companies makes the decision "not to hire" qualified people, give people healthcare assistance when they have paid into the system, grant assistance to unemployed people instead of lazy, sorry individuals who thinks that having babies every year is actually a job and please stop giving these illegal immigrants our hardworking people benefits.


Denice   July 29th, 2010 9:51 pm ET

In reference to SB1070 – I live approximately 25 miles from the Mexican border. I am all for this law. The majority of people that are commenting on this issue don't live here and see the illegals passing thru daily. I don't mind them wanting to work to support their families but the majority are performing illegal acts and Arizona is tired of dealing with this alone without the support of the Federal government. We are just enforcing the law that is on the books! I would like to see the President (he can campaign in Nevada but not make it over to AZ?) and journalists and television commentators come to the border. Go to Douglas AZ, watch the children cross the border and go to school when classes are in session. If you haven't seen this issue first hand, don't think that you can comment on it!!!!!!!!


Norman W. Walker   July 29th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

I wonder was she(LAURA) trying to be funny. I don't think so. Larry tonight was the worse show I have ever seen on CNN please don't stoop that low again, with all respect I ask you, please, she did you no justice. I can tell you didn't like it eather replay the tape and look at your face.


Ariel   July 29th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

All politics aside, Laura Ingraham needs to learn how to listen to others and not interrupt or talk over them. Her lack of conversational manners suggests that she missed out on learning the interpersonal skills we attempt to teach children in elementary school. Her lack of civility in debate is more offensive than her political views. She would be a much more effective spokesperson for her point of view if she could simply observe the most basic rules of polite discussion: Take turns, listen to others, and speak your truth without ranting.


Lisa B.   July 29th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

So what the people are saying (those opposed to Arizona enforcing Federal Laws already in place) is that if my neighbor doeesn't like their home anymore and decides they like mine better they can just move right on in without my permission and I have to accept it??? That I am viscious and mean if I don't accept it and want to remove them back onto their own property. This is crazy!

The Government has abandoned their duties and responsibilities to the citizens of this country by implied consent in not handling this over the last 20-30 years from the current adminstration all the way back to when the problem first started. All the citizens of this country are saying is do something and do it now or the States will. It's pretty simple, I think. I don't care what the Mexican President thinks about me and neither should this country. We don't answer to them. He needs to fix his own country so his people will want to stay there. We can't fix everyone's problems and we can't take everyone's refugee's. If the Mexican President is so concerned about our policies then maybe our Government needs to send them a Child Support Bill to take care of their citizens while they get their home in order.

There is no problem with people who go through the proper channels but to tell the American Citizens we have to accept this illegal invasion is Anti-American to say the least.

Frustrated in Georgia!


Prisciall   July 29th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

I watched a segment of Larry King's show tonight with laura ingraham. During this segment, she read an excerpt of some supposed diary entries from First Lady Michelle Obama. What she said was very offensive. But what was even more offensive was the racist tone in which she read. Her reading of these supposed entries were in a stereotypical ghettoized caricature of the country's First Lady who is an African American. As an African American, her presentation was racist, ignorant, and very offensive. Only in America, could such ignorance gain a person noteriety and wealth.
No wonder, the republicans could elect Bush as the President for two terms and revel in a b-class actor, Ronald Reagan, as one of the great American presidents. I admire the Obama's for trying to show this country that difference is not inherently bad. But, there's that 33% who is stuck in a racist and narrow paradyme, It's most unfortunate that these people can vote.


Stephen, Columbia, SC   July 29th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

Laura, you are absolutely wrong. Pres. Obama brought out racism that we laying low in this land. You need to examine yourself because you don't view Pres. Obama the same way you view white presidents. Go ahead deny it. Nobody is racist in this nation, right?


Jordan williams   July 29th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

This nation is built on immigration and its inhumane and unamerican to enforce laws that send people living here illegally to go back to a place where its nearly impossible to live. Our constitution grants American citizens the right to pursue happiness is it right to deny someone born elsewhere that same chance? This is clearly a situation comparing good and evil and the liberal point of view is making it out to be a decision between to evils. I only hope that the choice made is the lesser of two evils


Dodie   July 29th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

@ Charles

She does have hopes and aspirations....


Sharon   July 29th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

I haven't looked at CNN for awhile and then I decide to look at Larry King Live I hear this crap that Laura Ingram is sprewing, Why is it that every whitre repulican or whatever she label herself to be feel that they have to attack BLACK people period, this includes the President and his family. We live on this earth and we are not going anywhere until God calls us home, the best thing to do is try to accept everyone and their differences. We have had white Presidents for 42 years why is it a problem with the first Black president. This woman is racist and she offends me and that act she did while reading what Michele wrote in her diary really offends me. Do the blacks she knows talk like that, Michelle Obama does not talk like that. Send her back to FOX, I don't watch that station at all, TOO Racist. I live in St. Louis and I bet that whole room that is in her Amen corner is white. St. Louis is the most racist city in Missouri.

Joyce Hunt   July 29th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

Laura Ingraham is sick and Larry King Live should have had Roland Martin to take her on. I am very disappointed in Larry King Live Show for having a one side view and letting that wingnut Laura Ingraham talk about the First Lady of the United States with such disrespect and allowing her to have her self-made audience/cheering section setting behind her. She is two steps from being on the same level as Sarah Palin. Marc Lamont Hill STOP stuttering – YOU sound like a WIMP!!!


Jan in California   July 29th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

I think Larry should have mentioned Pres. Bush ... when he took that Air Force Jet ride and landed on the carrier ...and how much that cost ... What a waste of money ... so what if M. OBama is going here and there ...

Laura I. has quite a few Bloodied Axe's to Grind ... That's all she ever does ... Sometimes she spews too much Negative energy ... I am not going to invite her to any of my parties ... !!

I thought Larry King was very fair in his appraisal ... he certainly made me think Laura I. made that diary full of lies up ... She is over the top!!


John from Vancouver, bc Canada   July 29th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

I've watched your show for years and followed the politics in the US closely as well. I just watched Laura Ingraham on your show and finally decided to send this long awaited message. I'm disgusted in the RNC and their group of followers, and now, especially Laura Ingraham. She's so bitter and ridiculous, along with the rest of the RNC.....they're so quick to criticize the Democratic party for trying to fix the mess their party got the country into. First it was John McCain and the american people voting to elect a president of the most powerful country in the world simply because he was captured and imprisoned in the Vietnam war. Big deal! On that basis, the conservative party probably has hundreds of other candidates available. My brother, who was Canadian, fought in the Vietnam war as a US Marine and was killed, but I'm proud to realize he was close to becoming President of the United States. Sarah Palin is an embarrassment to the US people. She's definitely a product of your valued statement "anything's possible in the USA". To have a completely unqualified individual running for the second most powerful and responsible position in the United States....come on please! Don't the American people see or understand that President Obama aquired the position of President at the worst possible time in history?? Are you guys wacked, or is the media just skimming the surface and the majority of Americans are smarter than the media lets on? If you truly are Americans and proud to be American...embrace this historical time, and support the President you elected....after all, he wasnt elected because he was captured behind enemy lines, he was elected because he was a brilliant academic student in one of the brightest and most respected universities in your own country. Not only that, he opted to do community service, I'm sure as an avenue for political service, but chose that instead of taking the easy road to greed and Wall Street.
Please tell me I'm getting worked up over nothing, because I love Americans, American politics and the American way in general, but please give us outsiders faith that the reason Canada and many other countries respect you and your Democratic policies is because your worth it.


Suzanne   July 29th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

Why are black in America referred to as African Americans? In Europe they are not reffered to as African English, or African Germans etc..Why not just be Americans black or white?


Ed   July 29th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

This guest you had tonight Larry, gives blondes a bad rep.


Sharon   July 29th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

Has Laura been Drinking Wow Lose Canane


Robin   July 29th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

@Bobby Vance I want to make sure I understand you Point Of View, you think the president belongs in Kenya???? Hmmmmm.....what does that sound like to you guys? Be honest.


Please!   July 29th, 2010 9:55 pm ET

That woman Laura Ingram really needs to stop speaking. She is completely rude and simply talks to hear herself speak! It is very annoying. No one can get a word in edgewise.


Shag   July 29th, 2010 9:55 pm ET

It was not fair for you to have Ingraham on with an audience of her adherents behind her, hooting and hollering at every sarcastic and asinine comment she makes, when she's debating someone. It's a joke.


Charles   July 29th, 2010 9:55 pm ET

@Dodie,
For what? Everyone does for something; well then maybe not, for many it's easier to do nothing.


Steve   July 29th, 2010 9:55 pm ET

Both Laura and Mark are just bombastic. Nothing more, nothing less. The two of them, and their bickering, represent everyhing that is wrong with american politics. It is sad.


Gary Cline   July 29th, 2010 9:55 pm ET

Yes we have a half black/half white President. It has been obscene to say the N word.\
I own a liquor and 97%of my business is black. Yet I have heard black people call each other the N word in my presence. I have corrected them and told them they have to give respect to get respect. I don't think the culture of the black man has ever wanted respect or wanted to give respect.


Deb   July 29th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

laura is laughable and can't decide if she wants to be a comedian (poor at it), or talk about the issues...that is sad especially because there are so many folk just like her who insist on covering one eye and losing the conversation about real issues!


Kris   July 29th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

I think Laura Ingraham is being rude, by interjecting when it's not her turn to speak. This is not "your talk show" you have equal speaking time and noone is interjecting when you speak.


JWatson   July 29th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

Laura is rude and obnoxious in addition to not having a clue what she's talking about. She embarrasses me as a white female.


Cynobia   July 29th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

Laura says forget the color of your skin, but just listen to her. Do you really think she would be riding the president if he was George Bush the third and the economy was the same, along with the oil spill? President Obama is a human being, and I think many people on the right forget this fact, they on a daily basis, batter him and batter him. He is doing the best he can do, with the way the country was handed to him. I think the right has forgot that. Right along with the fact that people in the middle and below the poverty line are suffering, while we have their hand-picked senators paying $80,000 a year to play golf. The right needs a serious reality check!


Don   July 29th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

Larry Larry Larry

Why do you bring this lowlife garbage like Laura to your show? Isn't it obvious to you that she is racist? When in our entire history did we mock our president and first lady? But they were all white so what does that tell you?


Jerry   July 29th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

These women on your show only care about getting elected and making a lot of money, not the real people watching your show. Hope you didn't pay either one to be on your show.


JT   July 29th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

Please put Laura Ingraham and Rush Limbaugh on an island somewhere and maybe they will finally get all their venom used up on each other


Ellen Orlando   July 29th, 2010 9:57 pm ET

Why do you give Laura Ingraham an opportunity to spew her undocumented nonsense? Larry King couldn't control her obnoxious behavior. What a waste of time and how sad that CNN allows someone like her to view her obviously prejudiced views.
Why should I continue to turn to CNN for accurate information and news?????????


Keith   July 29th, 2010 9:57 pm ET

I'm happy to see that most people on this blog are on to this lady?


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 9:57 pm ET

@Charles

I am well aware of the states wanting to mimic what Arizona has failed to do. It's every state that has a Republican Governor up for re-election...


Anne   July 29th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

I turned my channel to another,im so sick of Hearing Laura, i think she has to read more, before opening her mouth.Why do you get her as a guess of your show Larry??? She thought she knew everything about the OBAMA'S to write the OBama's Dairies???? she is full of hatred and everything not really nice to listen to her.. She should have run as a president as if she knows everything.. I dont think you got a good rating today Larry.Tell Laura to think first before she opens her mouth.. She is like Sarah Palin they are not thinking..


art   July 29th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

The dumbing down of St. Louis.....

Sad.


vic nashville tn   July 29th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

Palin is joke


jim   July 29th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

If Sarah Palin evergets elected as the president of the US I'm moving to Canada


Kris   July 29th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

Suzanne, you have a good question, but if you really want to use color to describe people I think you will see that in reality noone is really "white" and neither is anyone really "black". So in as much as I see your point I wonder why people use colors to describe who they are.


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 29th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

Sara Palin is dangerous to the republican party and needs to be set aside .


Ann   July 29th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

Larry – Please, please – do not have Laura Ingram on your show. She constantly interupts and does not give the opposing view the courtesy of allowing them to speak. I think it is great to have "educated " debate but there are other conservatives that have some class and style to offer a good debate without being so irritating.


Jackinson Nascimento   July 29th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

Why is it that there Republicans do not allow the other side to speak when they are on these programs? That is a sign of their lack of respect for the other side.
That lady Ingraham or what her name is so lame and one sided....doing just what all Republican do.....cow down the other side and paint our President as being racist.
Look what the President has done in just 18 months....stop the steep economic decline of the Bush administration, passed health care reform, increasing the work force and moving the country forward. All the Republicans are doing is putting their party ahead of the country....then they call themselves patriots.....what a sham!!!!!


Dodie   July 29th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

So you are saying a person who "sparkles" on stage would make a good president. What happened to KNOWLEDGE... the woman who said she knows foreign politics because she can see Russia from her home????


Charles   July 29th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

@Don,
Just so I am clear, no one mocked President Bush's speaking skills and his creative words such as "misunderestimate?" What rock have you been under? BTW, he was white.


Stacy   July 29th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

uggh! I just busted my television screen because I punched this racist woman in the face on it! Now it's off to the living room to watch TV until I buy another one tomorrow - so much for that flat screen.
Larry, how could you allow this racist crazy teabagger have a platform to spew such hate? This is the reason why this country cannot move forward. I hope her nomination of Sarah Palin will run as the presidential nomination for 2012 so the country will have golden comedy relief.


Rick   July 29th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

Laura Ingraham brings her own Conservative TEA-PARTY audience to Larry King Live. Joy Behar said they always manage to hi-jack the narrative.


June   July 29th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

Larry why would you give a rabid person such as Laura an opportunity to air a made up diary of the First Lady? I am a black woman and let me tell you "little people" is not in our vocabulary those are the words of a racist privilaged white woman. It is not funny. You are also not allowing Marc to talk why? Because Laura cannot defend anything she says as it is not factual and she would be put to shame.


Jeffrey   July 29th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

This Laura thinks Sarah Palin is 'fascinating'??? Seriously. Seriously. Don't ever have her on the show again...I'd rather listen to Sarah Palin for an hour to be honest.


bruce a steiner   July 29th, 2010 10:00 pm ET

As a white american i dont understand why laura ingrahan is so hard on the fact President Obama should say he is bi-racial. The a large percent of blacks are bi-racial, and the racist don't differance between blacks and bi-racial they go by the color of their skin this is what racism is, she has no right naming herself bi-racial because she is several different white nationalties.


nicole   July 29th, 2010 10:00 pm ET

Laura Ingraham's allegiance is to herself and not the truth. This was demonstrated on how she said America is post-racism because we have a "black" president. However earlier, she said that Obama should say he is "biracial" and he was wrong to say the world considers him black. Where she just considered him black and not biracial. She talks from both sides of her mouth so why should anyone listen to her?


Jo Ann in California   July 29th, 2010 10:01 pm ET

Conservative? Don't you mean Mentally Challenged? When dealing with Laura Ingraham you need to: ( Avoid speech complexity which is beyond her mentally challenged comprehension level. Use simple subject-verb-object statements. People like Laura may be able to handle more complex forms, such as joining a independent clause like spreading hate and lies about President Obama.)


peggy ferrell   July 29th, 2010 10:01 pm ET

Laura ingraham criticizes President Obama for every word and breath he makes! She is so bias. I would have more respect for her if she tried to find something positive at least once to say about the president.I'm offended by so many calling the president by his name instead of President Obama.We are not teaching our children to respect anyone. I always call and give president Bush respect even though he wasn't my favorite person! By the way I won't buy your book I already know what it says!


Mary   July 29th, 2010 10:01 pm ET

This chick is living in a racist dreamland. I'm so tired of generalizations spewing from the mouths of ultra conservatives. Her views on Palin make me want to gag.


Charles   July 29th, 2010 10:02 pm ET

@Cajazz,
As I said earlier, the majority of Republicans and independents are in favor of the bill. I'm sure you recall that it was the independents who were most responsible for Obama's presidential victory. Thus this bill is far from being supported just by Republicans. BTW, what do you want the federal government to do about this issue? Something other than garnering votes for themselves hopefully.


BigD TRUTH CENTRE, MN   July 29th, 2010 10:02 pm ET

Laura- That Is Just It;

CNN Does Not Get All Over SARAH PALIN,
But FOX GETS ALL OVER ANYTHING- STICKY-GOOEY

What FOX Accuses Others of is the VERY THING That They Do!


NatChandley   July 29th, 2010 10:02 pm ET

Why would you give Laura Ingram an open forum to spread what is basically is a pedestal to promote her fantasy "the Obama Diaries" – trust me, there are a lot of white people out there who will take Laura's "Diaries" as gospel !! Glen Beck coud not have done better than what Larry King did tonight – intellectually dishonest piece of trash.

If I were in charge, that would be Larry's last show –

And I dare him to read my email on tomorrow's show!!


Carol Schroeder   July 29th, 2010 10:02 pm ET

Racism is a malady of people wishing it to be so. I was raised in Highland Park IL a predominately Jewish community of which I was a white Gentile. Never in my life as a young student did racism in any form ever come into my existence, My parents,my school mates, neightbors all were accepting and involved with each other. The home is where predujuice begins and should end. What is the problem other than the media making a big deal about everything?


Cheryl Black-Blair   July 29th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

Larry , I am so disgusted by Laura Ingraham. I find her totally offensive. I am so disappointed in you and your executive producers. When will you deal with some real issues? Friends have contacted you and CNN about important stories..stories impacting my life and the life of other Americans...last night I had to listen..to a celebrity being stalked...talk to me about what my family has had to endure because my sister blew the whistle on the Veteran's Administration...talk to me about how we have been stalked...talk to me about a justice system that doesn't seem to work...talk to me about what I am going through with Citigroup..We are so concerned about what is coming across the Mexican/US morning...taking jobs nobody else wants..Nobody seems concerned about the CEO's of Citigroup/Citibank...hmmm? Love their educational backgrounds.
Ohhh.please Laura....your mentioning God is a disgrace...God is love and you are anything but Love...I pray that you have a true encounter with God.


Rozanne   July 29th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

I hope Larry will not subject his viewers to Laura Ingraham anymore. It's bad enough that she is not particularly clever or bright. She also will not stop blabbing long enough to let anyone else speak. She had the first half of the show all to herself (to advertise her silly book) and then she was determined to continue her obnoxious solo act during what was supposed to be a "debate". Are you kidding me?
Next time, I will know better than to continue watching in the hopes that someone else might get a word in.
Ick. It was like Larry King Live had moved to Fox.


Susan   July 29th, 2010 10:04 pm ET

Laura is disgusting–honestly she is just doing this for money and fame-evident in her imitation of Ann Coulter (make up, hair). She wants to be a woman Rush-how enviable! The fact that she couldn't understand that Obama had to deal with people viewing him as african american while growing up–and that's why he relates to that.-blows my mind. Where did she get a degree? Should CNN put such a crazy person on as an authority? Unbelieveable... not too smart is she??


Alex   July 29th, 2010 10:06 pm ET

I am so impressed by Professor Mark Lamont Hill. What brilliant speech, eloquent, concise arguments, and really touching on something our country so often forgets still is an undercurrent, integrated reality. We don't want to be post-race, we want to be post racist. Laura says we need jobs, but why are so many people unable to attain these jobs? Many have been so held back by centuries of laws targetting holding back everyone but the white male. As a white woman, I feel as though people so often forget they aren't just successful because 'they worked hard', but because this government and its laws has allowed that very opportunity to them, and denied it for so long for others.


Chris Winham   July 29th, 2010 10:07 pm ET

I get it.... no profanity..... even when it's warrented. Thats what most of us feel when we see someone like Laura Ingram, however I didn't appreciate being totally deleted. I thought modification ment editing but I'm starting to feel like google in china right now. That being said I still think LK is a light wieght interviewer and hasn't asked a hard ball question in the last twenty years.
Sorry Larry


daniel   July 29th, 2010 10:07 pm ET

God made america and is the earth God made and sade man shall live on the earth and have dominion of every thing in it ,which means
that immigration is apart of it so why resisting people on the earth and on the land of arizona if that is the case then i think all america embassies and consulates office close from the world


Luz Jacques   July 29th, 2010 10:07 pm ET

I'm So tired of people like Laura and most Republican's refer themselves as TRUE AMERICANS and that they are correct on all their believes and
the rest of us don't count.

Has Laura ever Lived abroad or other Country???
I would love to teach her a thing or two about Life outside
her Bubble. She would be amazed. Come to California
and walk with me through the wineries, factories, restaurants
construction sites, car washes, cleaners, Armed Forces,
Hotel workers, Refineries, I think she will Learn a heck of
a lot from the rest of us AMERICANS outside her nerrow
minded life. Maybe she can talk all Asians, Iranians in California
to leave our Universities and replace the Immigrant workers
earning the same wages or join our Armed Forces.


Mike Reising   July 29th, 2010 10:08 pm ET

I'm no expert,but Ingram seemed high, wired. And rude, as she tried to roll over the other Marc Hill and Larry King. Usually Kig moderates better, what happned? Anyone who saw her, left or right, could see that Hill was on the money when he saidshe was using non-sequiters, etc.


Chaka   July 29th, 2010 10:09 pm ET

I just watched Larry King, and was totally turned off by Laura. She just kept talking and would not let the other gentleman talk. When she did talk she said absolutely nothing, when the other guy spoke she kept talking. She sounded subjective, opinionated and naive. She had nothing to really say. To criticize the President for stating that he was black was stupid, look at him no one is going to look at him and say hey your bi-racial! This country has nominated a black president, but it still has a very long way to go before we start thinking race is not a factor.


tams   July 29th, 2010 10:09 pm ET

Is Laura for real? Larry, I am so disappointed that you gave her and the group behind her any airtime. How short the memories of the Republicans are. Does anyone remember that an incoming President inherits "crap" from the previous administration, regardless of political party, and it takes at least 2 years to wade through the "crap'?
Shame on the Republican party and their insistance on criticizing a man, who became President and "walked" into an office full of economic depression, unemployment that started in the Bush administration, as well as 2 wars. Yes we are in a depression.!
Lastly, stop selling Sarah Palin! She is an insult to intelligent american women(because she is not intelligent!), and she is hypocritical. But wait.... that is the Republican partry.
Please do not give Laura Ingrahm any more attention!! Her opinions and voice make my stomach turn!


Elijah   July 29th, 2010 10:10 pm ET

Larry,
Thank you very much for having Laura tonight for her to display her ignorance, arrogance, and shallow knowlege-base. She talks about post racial america after election of a black president, however, she said earlier that americans are disappointed in the president... "women, men, children, and 'even Latinos". Laura, why did you say "even Lartinos"?


sylvia   July 29th, 2010 10:10 pm ET

As a 3rd generation Mex-Am I think all illigal immigrants shud be deported from all countries. Im tired of social security being paid to ppl who have never worked in this country a day in their life. Im tired of med-ical and medicare being sucked up by ppl who havnt put money into our system. All ppl need to get in line and get into this wonderful country legally.NO exceptions this means ppl from Irac, Iran, China, India, Mexico, central and south america etc.


Joyce Hunt   July 29th, 2010 10:11 pm ET

Laura Ingraham is sick and Larry King Live should have had Roland Martin to take her on. I am very disappointed in Larry King Live Show for having a one sided view and letting that wingnut Laura Ingraham talk about the First Lady of the United States with such disrespect and allowing her to have her self-made audience/cheering section setting behind her. She is two steps from being on the same level as Sarah Palin. Disgusting and offensive to watch. Marc Lamont Hill STOP stuttering YOU sound like a WIMP!!!


Bev Driver   July 29th, 2010 10:12 pm ET

Larry ,never again our country does not need to hear comments like the ones made tonight .Laura is a racist it is disrespectful to talk about our President like that .The United States has enough problems then have someone come on national television and openly blame a sitting President for a lot of problems that he was handed when he was elected. I think that he's doing as well as he can. CNN and Larry no more please.


Janice Jimenez   July 29th, 2010 10:12 pm ET

Laura Ingraham’s appearance on LKL is the worse show in our beloved Larry Kings history. Laura may have had her hairs bleached a few too many times. All of the Republican's that I know are Christians that have been brainwashed with lies. I am thankful that Laura would never be able to do that without her brain cells.


Gail   July 29th, 2010 10:12 pm ET

I am so disappointed in Larry King tonight. I felt that he was very pro Laura Ingraham. His Republican bias was shown by spending the last few moments of the show by asking Laura about her health rather than giving Mark a chance to give his last response.
If Laura truly believes that Sarah Palin is qualified to occupy the White House, I have a bridge to sell her.
It is time for Larry to leave CNN. Perhaps FOX News has a spot for him.


Flora Johnson   July 29th, 2010 10:18 pm ET

Illegal immigration is undoubtdly wrong! I would feel secure knowing that our borders are free from immigrants who may pose a threat to our homeland. The issue is on the table. State rights are much more different than federal rights. Who had the right to switch the rules without the consent of the people? If so, how to determine if an individual living in America is here illegally? Oh I know; racially profile those who they, "law enforcers" feel are in the US illegally! I as a taxpayer, a legal taxpayer, do not want my money going towards their, " the law enforcers" training to seek after those who are here illegally. As I stated in the begining illegal immigration should be brought to a hault, but not by racially profiling an individual... It's just wrong!!!


Peter Q. Preach   July 29th, 2010 10:18 pm ET

I watched the interview w/ Laura Ingraham an could not understand why anyone would give her time to make the bias slandrous comments concerning her prejudice toward the President and His Family.Laura took a position slanting the truth to fit her own means.I hope Michelle Obama files a in court aganist Laura for slander.


Stacy   July 29th, 2010 10:19 pm ET

The fact that this ignorant woman would even speak about sending someone out of this country is appalling. She should get on the plane FIRST since her ancestors were kicked out of England, came here and stole the land from the Native Indians. Then they traveled to a foreign land, stole the people and made them into slaves for many years. From this atrocity, the women were raped, producing children who are racially mixed, which is the reasons there are so many complexions to African-Americans. For all this woman knows and her crowd of teabaggers, many blacks are probably related to her. That being said, her hatred and bigotry knows no bounds. She can't support anything she says with facts, and I hope Michelle Obama sues this woman for libel, defamation of character, and slander.


Charles   July 29th, 2010 10:21 pm ET

@Gail,
Larry challenged Laura on almost everything. As for asking her about her health, maybe at this age and given his health problems, he's finally realized what's important in life. I can't fault him for that.


Stacy   July 29th, 2010 10:22 pm ET

Perhaps if this woman wasn't so hate filled, she may not have been struck with cancer. How do racists think anything good will come from their hate, and then they act shocked when their health fails? Maybe she will contact S'error Pay-me's pastor, Pastor Murthee, and he will cast a spell on her.


Tyler   July 29th, 2010 10:24 pm ET

It was great to see Laura on the show! She is NOT a racist. How dare anyone say that someone is racist just because they criticize a black president. That is the cheapest defense mechanism; you can diagree with Laura on substance, but calling her a racist is just wrong. Laura came up with the Obama Diaries as a tool to explain the way the Obamas operate. It was a creative idea, and I thought liberals celebrated creativity?


richard   July 29th, 2010 10:26 pm ET

I just read some blogs before making my own comments about tonight's show. I was heartened to find that 99% of the comments agree with my impressions of Laura as being repulsive. I never thought that Ann Coulter could have competition- but this lady sounds and looks like her sister. The only thing comparable to Laura tonite were all those pathetic people sitting behind her. Where do they come from? As for the excerpts from her "bestseller"- God bless anyone that reads more than a page of this!


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 10:29 pm ET

@Charles

I would like to see the U.S. Government do like they did with the inhabitants they found here they began forming this country. Imagine the U.S. Government made Native Americans citizen's....some not until 1921. ...Why not the same for the descendants whose ancestors once owned the land's of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California...they are here...make them legal. Sound fair enough? Then Congress can get down to brass tacks and institute legislation that will fairly treat Mexican laborers as guest worker's and ICE can feel assured that what they do is more of a moral and legal act when they enforce NEW and FAIRER immigration laws..What else can they do..make it like the Korea's DMZ and mine it coast to coast...both north and south.?


sylvia   July 29th, 2010 10:29 pm ET

Sara Palin for president of what ...she didnt even finish her last job hahaha what will she do, where will she go when the going gets tough if by some fantasy chance she won the presidential election, haha when pigs fly Sara learn to read first.....then try being and finishing a job such as being a full term govenor.


Charles   July 29th, 2010 10:31 pm ET

@Stacy,
Surely that wasn't why Ted Kennedy was stricken with cancer.


Joyce Hunt   July 29th, 2010 10:31 pm ET

From reading the responses you received, I hope you share the comments with your guest Laura Ingraham. Many listen including myself was very disappointed that you allowed her to speak about the First of the United States with such disrespect. You would have never let anyone speak about Nancy Reagan with such disrespect.. You should be ashamed of yourself.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 10:34 pm ET

@Charles

IF Bush years didn't entangle us in two errant wars, there could be a World Trade Center every two miles along the southern border..and that is an underestimate...


PHD. from Seattle   July 29th, 2010 10:38 pm ET

By allowing that nutcase on your show ,You have exposed Her Illness to a Nation.


Janice Jimenez   July 29th, 2010 10:40 pm ET

Syliva, Sara Palin is obviously more interested in money than in running for president so worry no more. The media has done a good deed this time. It will even be favorable for her because her monetary offers will keep her from further embarrassment.


Mothermaybe   July 29th, 2010 10:42 pm ET

I see you have the "Mouth" on tonight. She rattles on so no one can give their views and possible solutions. Have you noticed that all republicans have the same sound bite? She says the same thing over and over with no solutions. They are so full of hate, but yet they say they are on the Christian right. Oh! don't forget their guns, their "do nothing"agendas, their racist placards and their out right lies about the truth of what the President is trying to accomplish. He has done more for the people than their side has in eight years. I believe he really cares. Things are going to turn around for the good.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 10:43 pm ET

@Charles

We have this impression that they are dirty and murderer's. They are very clean people and being Christian they have deeply ingrained values regarding life. Sure there are deviation's, but that is all you hear about in the news. Republican's and Democrat's and Independent's alike, up for re-election, are distorting the facts...


erdelyi   July 29th, 2010 10:45 pm ET

Laura Ingram is like a cheap parfume or clothing, wow....chatter chatter, talks over others, loud...hateful towards any other opinion..because of poeple like her immigrants are hated in this country, Arizona is now pretty much like a fascist state...it is so painful to see, so hurtful to hear people like jan brewer and laura ingraham they are awful and make any immigrant feel awful, there are hardworking immigrants here in the States...they are more American than many Americans born in the States ..Laura writes books for money she has no heart in issues..LEGALIZE ALL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHO HAVE NOT COMMITED A CRIME, MAKE IT A FEE FOR THEM FOR PAPERS AND THEN THEY'LL WORK AND PAY TAXES....WE'D ALL BE BETTER OFF


shenygirl1   July 29th, 2010 10:45 pm ET

Laura Ingraham gets the prize for being the most vile, vicious,
repulsive right wing shill the Republicans have. Her attempt at political satire is a joke. Shes not intelligent enough to pull it off. He lame attempts at humor backfire in her face and all we see is a rude, obnoxious, overbearing woman.


shenygirl1   July 29th, 2010 10:54 pm ET

As I listened to your rude, overbearing guest rambling on constantly and interrupting and shouting over Professor Lamont Hill, I thought I had turned on Fox by mistake.

If her book happens to sell, it will be purchased by the RNC and conveniently deposited in dumpsters where it belongs.


kelly   July 29th, 2010 10:55 pm ET

Larry.. Your show tonight was disgusting and it was as low and classy as the Fox news network. Now i have no problem with you having pundits from both sides to debate issues, i actually think it's a good thing, but why has America dumbed themselves down to the point where the networks actually think having someone as arrogant and offensive as this woman is healthy? It is not! This Ingraham woman is no different then Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck, and the venom they spew is not only outrageous but extremely dangerous. They speak as though President Obama has America on the brink of destruction as if it was perfectly intact until he came into office. I am hoping that most Americans are smarter then the Republicans give them credit for!


Mothermaybe   July 29th, 2010 10:59 pm ET

This Arizona immigration problem does need to be fixed. I wouldn't want someone illegal to come in my back yard either, but I don't think this law is the right way to go. There are police just like there are some civilians that are prejudice against individuals because of their race. I wouldn't trust them with this law either. There has to be another solution. Other countries have guards at their borders where individuals have to show the proper papers to get in, why can't we?


Dre2e   July 29th, 2010 10:59 pm ET

Where in the world is this person of uninformed interest coming from. The issues were addressed and she is so far out in the left, she is gone too far. The attack on the President and his family is not only shameless but despicable. African Americans are the only group of people who have an unemployment rate of 10%-27% for the last 5 years. The biggest group in Prison are the once enslaved people,once again and we actually send money to the government to send to other countries to rebuild, democratize and educate and modernize and we can not address the issues that are literally taking this landscape apart. Let's work together with a one-fold purpose to make this country better than it was and as a new light on a bigger hill for others to emulate.


Charles   July 29th, 2010 10:59 pm ET

@shenygirl1,
A lot like Stephanie who was on last evening.


Cajazz76:24:8   July 29th, 2010 11:02 pm ET

@erdelyi

That was the plan at one time, wasn't it? Then came time for re-elections.


Smith in Oregon   July 29th, 2010 11:36 pm ET

Larry, it appears the overwhelming commenter's absolutely hated Laura Ingraham, go figure!

I noticed at least one commenter had swallowed the utterly false Fox Network psycho babble that illegal immigrants come to America and collect Social Security benefits. Illegal immigrants do not have a federal Social Security number provided to them. They might have a fake or forged Social Security care but that doesn't allow nor permit any illegal immigrant to receive Social Security benefits. The fact is that illegal immigrants are taxed by employers for Medicare-Medicaid and Social Security and are unable to recoup those costs as a illegal immigrant.


janet   July 30th, 2010 12:05 am ET

i would like to know that if it is lawfully correct for a officer to stop any person that is hispanic and inquire of their legal status what about those that is caucasion looking or indian or chinese looking do they get stopped too? for many is illegal and they escaped the laws on the basis of the colour of skin. i would also like to know why there is such hatred towards anyone that is hispanic or even looks like they might be. it reminds me of the WW11 era of hitler and jews.
any comments on that?


Pamela   July 30th, 2010 12:07 am ET

Larry, tonight your show was a wake up call to all Americans, rather it be a ballroom full of people in Missouri or a group of people using a historic event in history as means to get attention, the validity of the anger towards our Government needs to be explored. It sounds as if Ms. Ingram is conveying in her way a means to draw attention to " The People" to get involved. The constitution was written to protect the rights of "We the People", not we the government. I say may the first Politician to the podium with the truth win! And I thank God there are people still trying to make a difference in our Country.


Greta   July 30th, 2010 12:13 am ET

Every time Governor Jan Brewer speaks, makes me sick, specially when she say's that she is going to do what's rigth, who is she to tell or say what's rigth or wrong, since her energy and soul are so lost. it's simple you can't judge some for the mistakes of other's...... The image of the State of Arizona it's been hurt for the messures she's taken to pass laws for the interest of her party....


Judy Murphy   July 30th, 2010 12:23 am ET

How in the world can you give time to Laura Ingram to carry on
about the Obama Diaries when she prefaces her comments
with the fact that the "documents" were anonymously left on
her windshield and she has not verified any of it? Didn't the
unscrupulous slandering of Shirley Sherrod teach you
NOTHING??? It is time for the media to do a little honest
journalism and some soul searching.

Judy Murphy


Keri-Ann   July 30th, 2010 12:23 am ET

Laura is making the Obamas sound like ANGRY BLACK PEOPLE!!!.. the nerve of all these right wing racists people the only reason alot of these issues come up is due to race. shame on america! we have not grown as a country much


Ken   July 30th, 2010 12:24 am ET

As a supporter of SB 1070, I like to point out the obvious. That this is a bill against immigration, not just Mexicans. It just happens to be that because Mexico is our closest border, that is what are biggest problem is. We have illegals that come to our country and end up severly dehydrated and end up hospitalized. It's now up to the state to pay for those medical costs. Children are being born and again, taxpayers ensure that happens. Our tax money should be spent on helping those that pay taxe and not those that have not legally entered our country in any state. Whether they are Mexican, Russian, Korean or hail from any other foriegn country then this bill is to help us ensure that they come here legally. And how hard is it to show an ID card or passport when asked? Comply and press on.
I like to use the stop and frisk rule in New York where law enforcement can frisk suspicious individuals. How is that any different in our case?


Greg Irwin   July 30th, 2010 12:25 am ET

What a sick woman. Sick book. Sad part of the USA, that this woman gets Prime Time in CNN.


Jane   July 30th, 2010 12:26 am ET

That Laura Ingraham needs to go back to FOX where she belongs and not taint CNN and the Larry King show with her vitriol. She is just too much, her hyperbole cruel and damaging,....not mention she looks like pure white trash with her "yeller" hair and ridiculous eye makeup. She is truly disturbing....a female version of Rush.


GuitarLee   July 30th, 2010 12:34 am ET

Laura Ingraham is an embarrassment. I regret belonging to the same species.


SJ Berry   July 30th, 2010 12:34 am ET

Is this Laura a comedian? I have never heard of her. Her attacks on Mrs. Obama and to include references to their children is so out of bounds. It's unclear how she gets access to a microphone. It must be push back for the President going on to the view. It's pretty tired.


hassan   July 30th, 2010 12:36 am ET

FIRST, we all know that laura and her audience never voted for obama, so please she should stop acting like she should disapointed with the president. SECOND, she shoulD stop attacking the first lady, that is what she always does on her TALK SHOW. is it some kind of female JELOUSY or what. And THIRD, laura inghram is just nothing but right wing RADICAL who never had any cultural or social diversity in the past , anything that isnt part of her world view she thinks is a threat to the REPUBLICAN PARTY


Martin   July 30th, 2010 12:38 am ET

Laura Ingraham is absolutely senseless and a disgrace to the truth... she comes out as a two faced individual all the time. I guess she is out there to make money not to spill the truth out for the people to know.


Nancy O'Leary   July 30th, 2010 12:38 am ET

Laura Ingraham is not a stupid person, but I really question her morality in writing her fiction book. She is aware that the people who like her and follow her believe that Obama is a Kenyan Muslim, yet she goes on Larry King and refuses to acknowledge that the book is pure fiction. Her followers will now go on and repeat her make-believe stories to each other as facts. In the very near future, we will be subjected to more idiocy from the retarded right as the likes of Glen Beck and his audience as they move forward with this. What a waste...


Raman Chopra   July 30th, 2010 12:38 am ET

I bet the Governor does not have her Proof of Citizenship on her right now. But ten she does not have to carry it. She is white.She is blonde. She must be American ?

But I can bet she does not have her Proof of Citizenship on her right now.


Brian   July 30th, 2010 12:40 am ET

This woman is ridiculous; she displays the attitude that is driving this country to ruin and its foundation of equality and compassion. Similar to Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly and the other Republican fool that cant hear they are just entertainers that have found a mob of idiots that follow and cheer their chest pounding. Why is she given any air time?


hassan   July 30th, 2010 12:40 am ET

I DONT EVEN KNOW WHY LARRY KING INVITED THIS RADICAL LADY TO HIS SHOW. SHE DONT DESERVE TO BE ON LARRY KING. she should go back to her hatred talk show where she attacks the BLACKS, JEWS, MUSLIMS, AND LATINO. anybody that dont look like her


Michelle   July 30th, 2010 12:41 am ET

Can we look at the views and statements from both parties on this law in Arizona for what it really is? If we take into account that if we eliminate all these immigrants what would this country be? What will this country be if we didn't have the immigrants who do the "dirty" work that the rest of us won't do? In the episode that aired earlier today on the correspondent who worked on the grape harvesting farm. Also, look at the tobacco pickers. Americans (black and white) tend to think those labor intensive jobs are beneath them. Let's ask those who created the law in Arizona who does their landscaping, house construction, road pavement projects, etc.


Martin   July 30th, 2010 12:42 am ET

Laura Ingraham is more of a hypocrite than a politician, she needs to shut up and learn more about political games that has been existing long before she was born... she is now sounding like the senseless Alaskan lady....Sarah Palin..


themichaelview   July 30th, 2010 12:43 am ET

Laura Ingram is dispicable!!! And she has the AUDACITY to read the excerpts with a "MOCKING", BLACK VOICE (reminiscent of Gone With The Wind "I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' babies!") The nerve of this woman is horrific, vile & INSULTING to ALL Americans!

Please, don't have her on anymore & leave on your normal, classy HIGH ROAD that you have always taken.


carl miller   July 30th, 2010 12:43 am ET

Larry King,

I can't believe you allowed Laura Ingraham to mock the way Mrs. Obama speaks. The First Lady is very articulate, and she does not have brogue as Ingraham was trying to imply. You allowed the racist Ingraham to continue reading in that way, even though you knew what she was doing. I was apalled that you permitted her to do that, and you even chuckled from time to time. YOU should be ashamed of yourself.

I'm glad you're going off the air, for I will NEVER watch your program again, and I hope you never get a special or any other work. You and the racist Ingraham are shameful!! And you should not be allowed on the air!

Carl Miller


Barbara J Hatcher   July 30th, 2010 12:43 am ET

What a travesty! That racist Laura Ingraham had an audience as she mocked the President and his family; interrupted and overtalked her debater. Just plain rude, angry white woman! Where was she with George Bush did absolutely nothing! What a rude woman who thinks she is entitled.!


Raman Chopra   July 30th, 2010 12:46 am ET

Slavery is illegal in America ..Right ? WRONG. The faces and the races changed and the current slaves are the Hispanics . What did not changed was that the Land Owners remained mostly White.
A Law should be passed to charge these Land owners for Slavery and put them behind bars. That is what needs to be done.

But laura is so typical. She interepts Mark etc. etc. She is just there making a fool of herself.


charles   July 30th, 2010 12:47 am ET

Larry -cnn- what in the world is Laura Ingram on the show for ? Take off the lipstick, makeup and blonde hair and give her a white sheet. What hatred.


Candice Hon   July 30th, 2010 12:48 am ET

I think its sad that Laura cannot respond to the reality that it is in fact corporate backed policies such as NAFTA and government corn subsidies that are what's causing our immigration problem in the first place. The mexican immigrant farmworkers wouldn't be here if they had a chance to earn an honest living in their own country but our government backed corn subsidies have driven them out of the market.

Too bad the republican party doesn't have the will to speak up against corporate america, even when they know the facts to be true. You could tell by the look on Laura's face when Mark mentioned NAFTA as part of the contributing source of illegal immigration that she knew he was right.


Valerie Martin   July 30th, 2010 12:48 am ET

Am I the only one who thinks she was more than a little "tipsy"? I just wanted to write and give LK credit for trying to control the "debate". Laura tried to employ the usual tactic the "right" uses. Talk, talk, repeat, talk. When it is the opposing sides turn to respond, let them get half a sentence out, interrupt loudly, talk over them, then talk, talk repeat, and talk some more until sorry, we're out of time!!!


patricia   July 30th, 2010 12:48 am ET

this Laura is a joke. She attacked Michelle Obama.. How low can one go? I'm sorry Larry King.. but, I can not watch the rest of your show... This Laura is a Big Mouth no -it – all....


derek brown   July 30th, 2010 12:49 am ET

if the feds can't secure its borders, it could be argued that the country on longer exists.especially when you consider that [4th of july asside]
the british are back,...and they controal the gulf.


KD   July 30th, 2010 12:51 am ET

Why can't the "President" take a vacation? No CEO in America has given up there vacation or altered their lifestyle because of our economic situation, and these are the guys who are cutting thousands of jobs! Why isn't she saying something about that.


Rita Campbell   July 30th, 2010 12:52 am ET

Laura is rude, displays ill manners, interupts and doesn't respect anyone elses' opinion, am turning your show away.
I'll tune in when you have more educated panelistists, with manners.
To where a conversation can be heard.
conservative christian, yeah right.


Gale Audia   July 30th, 2010 12:53 am ET

Laura Ingrim came across like she is full of herself. She does not listen, she is rude and extremely loud and controlling! I think if she were to say again how terrible it is that Obama has apologized for America's mistakes, I think I would have vomited. This has become right wing party garbage which is repeated OVER and OVER again. If we cannot apologize for the mistakes we have made, then we have no integrity, no conscience and we have not learned anything from the past! To be able to say "We were wrong", is not a sign of weakness, but of strength of character. This was not a discussion of the issues, it was politiking nonsense. Will we ever have intelligent discussions on Cnn or will we continue to hear raging loudmouths like Laura Ingrim over and over again? Please give us substance!


George   July 30th, 2010 12:53 am ET

It seems to me that the Republican party is intent on destroying this country. They are out to give it all to the rich and leave the rest of us to wallow in the trail of manure that the Bush admistration left.

Where were you (Republcans) when we got into a war we shouldn't have gotten into. Where were you when Katrina hit and bodies were floating in the wake of it? Where were your big mouth tea partiers then?

Stop critcizing Obama and knuckle up to see what you can do to get us out of the mess that we are in. Stop expecting Obama to do magic tricks.

And those of us who stood behind Obama, to get him elected, don't forget to get out and vote in November. Our job is not done. Get the people who try to throw a monkey wrench into every positive idea that is offered up out of office.

Stop thinking that you can scare the "little guys" by tossing around terms like Socialism. Quit thinking that every social program is a deterrent and every deregulation is going to lead to a wave of automatic fair market corrections.

Here's what you don't give us credit for. We are a lot smarter than you think. We watch all the news programs, we read more than one publication, we don't rely on some bloated half wit liar to tell us what to think. We do our homework., We have good memories. We remember who did what and when this country was on the right path to becoming what was intended.

And we're here. No signs. No yelling. Just waiting for the right time to prove the truth....and it's coming.


Marilyn from Ohio   July 30th, 2010 12:53 am ET

Laura Ingraham needs to crawl back under the rock she slivered out of to spout her hateful mouth of venom.


The truth   July 30th, 2010 12:55 am ET

All this has become to much of a big mess in this country, and in simple words it sucks. I see both sides, but Im strongly against this new law. They have no right to search through people life, this is repeating history of america. Isint that the point of going to school and taking a history class? to not repeat the same mistakes that we once made. I know everything changes, but also the way this law was made was really dumb, the governor thinks this will go away and its just the beginning. She says its not targeted towards mexican people, but reality is, this law is intended to do just that. To kick these people out, my people, I am an American citizen, but my family comes from mexico, I was blessed to have an education here. I see the point of drug cartels coming over and too much immagration being here, that takes away lives and money. But, the way it is being done is un human. How can you take a family and seperate, how can you take ones rights without asking, why is it that they do not pay taxes, when everything they buy is taxed, so excuse me when I say immgrants shop, and very much so they pay a certain tax, even though they are payed the lowest wages. This is not only mexicans even latinos, asian and indian groups suffer as well. The federal goverments needs to find some sort of way to deal with this, or the problem will get bigger, violence will grow, tensions will not leave. I am no politician nor am I an expert. I am student of America, that learned that history should not be repeated, I am an open minded person and looks at both sides, but one is suffering more than the other. People should learn to listen and see options, instead of taking drastic options, cause in the long run it will effect both sides.


Barb   July 30th, 2010 12:59 am ET

What a racist madame Laura Ingraham is. She is so incensitive. I find her to be very ignorant and her book offensive and an embarrasment to our country! It is this same dumb stuff that she is saying and we are hearing from some Republicans and Tea Party members that has our country so mixed up and fickled. Then to have an audience to laugh at her stupid commentary about the leader of our land is horrible! Our President is human and so is his wife.They deserve vacations! Has she forgotten the errors of past presidents? This is only another dig to destroy a Black President!!! We have enough to work out; we don't need anymore of her rubbage!! There should have been a competing crowd. This is an unfair CNN tonight.


voter   July 30th, 2010 1:00 am ET

this lady is a waste of time


Wendy Mealy   July 30th, 2010 1:00 am ET

I can't wait to see Laura Ingrams character assination of the first family to blow up in her face! The American people are smart enough to know the differance between "off the cuff comments" in a diary and the Knowledge and Wisdom that goes Mr. Obamas drive for a change in policy! The country didn't go on military alert when Reagan was taped saying that the US was going to bomb Russia! This lady is an Ann Coulter clone with no common sense who thinks she can push the buttons! Some European Americans are going through an identity crisis and the right is taking advantage of that...


Phoebesbest   July 30th, 2010 1:00 am ET

Does this Laura Ingram think that if she talks loud and over talks others she is right. Well she is rude and obnoxious and wrong in her opinions for the most part.


Aspen   July 30th, 2010 1:03 am ET

I think that Laura shouldn't have written The Obama Diaries. She has no right to make fun of the president and his family. We the people are in a deep depression and it is no time to crack jokes. I don't see Laura running the country and wouldn't want to. It is just totally inappropriate at a time like this to try to criticize the president. He's already been elected and Laura's petty jokes aren't going to change a thing. If Laura was so smart she would be finding ways to help the president and not just make stupid comments. Running the country is a difficult job and I understand that Barrack was aware of that, but just think, its one man against approximately 300 million others.


Janet   July 30th, 2010 1:03 am ET

Laura Ingram is a perfect example of why this country has gone to hell in a handbasket. Does she think she is a comedian?f Shame on CNN allowing the fiction in her mind to be aired as though it were fact.Yes Laura, we know the Obamas are not DEITY! Have a little respect for God"s sake! What a terrible example you talking heads are for the youth of America. No wonder Americans are so disgusted with politicians.and the media that covers them.
GOOD GRIEF, GROW UP ALREADY.


tony   July 30th, 2010 1:09 am ET

as you can see, Laura is just talking but not saying nothing, she doesn't know her facts...


ritch   July 30th, 2010 1:10 am ET

all these political people act like children taking stabs at each other like they are on a playground. its sad . especially when we need to stick together and get things done. there are news teams dedicated to bashing our president. these people are the real terrorists, using propaganda to
mass manipulate. regardless of how people feel about Obama , it is clear he has good intentions. He wants to help people. we are all getting health care how is that bad? he is working on new energy bills how is that bad?
the problem is the president speaks , then everyone chimes in with inaccurate poles, and numbers and approval ratings. Listen to the president speak from his mouth then shut of the tv.


Joan   July 30th, 2010 1:16 am ET

Larry,

I cannot understand why you allow a guest like Laura Ingraham to constantly interrupt and literally screech over the other gentleman guest (Professor Marc Lamont Hill of Columbia University) ?! I want to hear what Professor Hill has to say and I cannot hear his commentary because of Ms. Ingraham's constant outbursts which you allow.

Ms. Ingraham is haughty, sarcastic, juvenile and highly insulting of Michelle Obama referring to her as " ms. sleeveless" and refers to her as though Mrs. Obama is not highly intelligent and has nothing educational or substantial to present to Congress on health and obesity issues.

How can we the audience possibly be educated by your program when you allow someone like Ms. Ingraham to run the show with her screeching voice without providing any intelligent or well grounded discussion of the issues? Inform us with something substantial, please! Control your guests! Does CNN just want "free for all entertainment" without informing the electorate ?? Our democracy is at stake!


Cajazz76:24:8   July 30th, 2010 1:34 am ET

Laura Ingraham

You said "I'm the most flawed person out there"..Is that a hindrance for you since you gave up looking for a husband? At the age of 46, is it a bit odd to the people at Fox News that you have acquired a young Guatemalan girl and a young Russian boy? Or do your counterweights at Fox News have a few immigrant children also that they use for show and tell? Has the jock itch powder that you and Ann Coulter market been tested on rats, like O'Hannity and O'Really? The people from Missouri that sat behind you during the taping of LKL, were they all senior citizen's that you normally have lunch with or are they the ones you gave a copy of your book to so your #22 standings on the NYT bestseller list remains stable? Do you still sneak into private gatherings of gays and record them? You still don't send tapes to their parent's do you? Your brother is gay and it has been leaked that you talk to him..long distance, does he ever get a chance to talk back? You still avoid eating out, ever hear of a mouth dam? Or does your damn mouth provide anti-homophobic bacteria repellent? I rarely watch LKL, though I often blog, tonight I watch the re-airing at 11pm, CST, why have my testicles crawled out of my sack? My cat likes to watch TV, her ears began to bleed when she heard your voice, is that normal? Why did you attempt to sound like a southern black person when you mimicked the president and the first lady? He was born in Hawaii and Michelle Obama was born in Chicago, Illinois. Were you just trying to be funny..ha.ha..ahem. You gave me an intense case of gas when you did that. I heard you turned your first communion dress into a KKK gown and hood after you became a Roman Catholic, do you make the sign of the cross as it is burning? I understand the American Polish Society thinks you are a porker and the Irish American Federation thinks you are a rubber sphincter on crack, are they envious of your success? When the doctors said they found two little bumps, did that comfort you knowing your cancer would be cured? Are you still brainless, I mean bra-less? Why did the guy you paid to become engaged to you leave after that? Is that called an Irish honeymoon? How many illegal Mexicans have you hired to baby-sit your young immigrant adoption in-process (wink-wink) children? Will they become your indentured servants when they reach the age of 7? Is it true that Alex King is really your out of wedlock, haven't been loved child? When you rented NY Rep. Charlie Rangel's house in the Dominican Republic, was it you that blew him in to the IRS just because the roof leaked? Why has Glastonbury, Connecticut posted pictures of you with NO TRESPASSING at the bottom? Is that a campaign poster for an empty political post in the fall? Now I noticed that blisters are forming on the whites of my eyes, do you have a tele-kinetic disease? I stopped watching, my eyes are aching. You never went to parochial school, is that what makes you what you aren't...soft-spoken? I heard that Nancy Reagan never speaks to you because it is assumed your speech-writing diseased her husband's brain, will you continue to write the right wing speeches for ALL Republican's...please? Remember the leopard skin mini-skirt you once disgraced...was that pussy dead even then? Found a person that you scared the hell out of...Jeffrey Hart, the faculty adviser for the Dartmouth Review, described YOU as having "the most extreme antihomosexual views imaginable," and noted that "she went so far as to avoid a local eatery where she feared the waiters were homosexual and might touch her silverware or spit on her food, exposing her to AIDS ...I am not feeling very well right now...I have to throw up.


Jack Dawson   July 30th, 2010 1:42 am ET

I just caught Laura Ingraham on Larry King. I think this woman needs an intervention with Dr. Drew. She was definitely taking a chemical substance sometime just before the interview. I could not tell if it was alcohol or something much stronger. I am not a professional in that field. But I do think there are professionals out there that could back up my suspicions. I do hope this is not an addiction but rather poor judgement on her part.


carl miller   July 30th, 2010 1:50 am ET

I noticed that a lot people were offended by Laura Ingraham's racism on tonights show. I was also appalled that Larry King would chuckle at the horrible things she said and the way she mocked the First Lady and insinuated that she had a brogue. I could not believe that Larry King would sit there and engage such a person! Both of them should be ashamed of themselves! I never thought that CNN would stoop to that kind of broadcast! Or Larry King to that kind of behavior!
Since so many people felt the same way, I hope that you will simply turn off Larry King in the future and let his sponsors know that you won't buy products from companies that support such egregious racism. And please call CNN and let them know how offensive you found this program to be.
Larry King invited this racist indignant woman on his program to help her sell her book. He sat there and allowed her to mock the First Lady of the United States for nearly an hour. I would NEVER have thought that he would encourage such vile racism. I guess you never really know broadcasters until they slip up like he did tonight to show his real colors! As for me and my house, we will NEVER watch Larry King again, and I hope others will join me!

El Presidente'   July 30th, 2010 2:01 am ET

Payments to the ISI began during the Clinton Admin along with attempts to get bin Laden for his role in organizing jihad and acts of terror prior to 9/11. ISI's main goal is to defend Pakistan form it's arch enemy, India. It counts the Taliban as an ally in this regard. As to immigration, what is it about "illegal" that is not understood. How abouot if we ALL just pick and choose which Federal and local laws we obey? I don't want to pay taxes, wear a seat belt, and would like to urinate in public as often as possible when standing on the front steps of the US Capital building when Congress is in session. OK with you guys who pooh pooh the Arizona law?


Heliana Ramirez   July 30th, 2010 2:05 am ET

Laura is horrific and Larry is complicit! Her refusal to let Mark finish a thought, misrepresentation of immigration policy (more deportations under Obama than Bush) and extreme rudeness were offensive. I was actually embarrassed to watch Laura as she seemed like a bullying freshman debater- if the opponent is incessantly interrupted it will seem like she’s won (perhaps, if you’re in high school). Maybe next time she won't need a cheering section.

President Obama's comment on racial identity and Mark's point about being "read" as Black were totally lost on Laura and Larry- how blinding white privilege can be! You want President Obama to acknowledge his white ancestry, which he has/does but racial identity is about how you and other people see/treat you. I too have lost interest in your work Larry- after a lifetime of great shows, you just blew all credibility as an impartial host. You both did however reinforce the great struggle of embracing and feeling proud of the white part of my mixed race identity. Mark, thanks for being the only one with decent, classy and intelligent debate, you kept me tuned in.


Bonny   July 30th, 2010 3:46 am ET

How could you waste a show with a mental midget like Laura Ingraham. What a rude and ignorantly stoopid person! And so irritating.
Seriously, this idiot does not merit the amount of airtime she was given. It's people like her that makes me as a Canadian wonder WTF is up with you Americans?


Glenn   July 30th, 2010 3:46 am ET

Listening to this woman is worse than fingernails on a chalkboard. I rarely turn Larry King's program off, but after 10 minutes of Ms Ingraham's snarky remarks, I had to mute the show. I respect everyone's right to express his/her opinions, and I actually agree with her on some points, but there's no need to be such a smart ass. Everything she said was rude and snarky. What an awful person.


Edith   July 30th, 2010 3:51 am ET

Based on the segments she has read, I would not waste my money to purchase this trashy book. Lady Bird Johnson, wasn’t an expert on horticulture, nor was Nancy Ragan an expert on drugs, but neither has been criticized disrespectfully by Laura Ingram like Michelle Obama. Clearly she is a part of the vicious, culturally, and racially insensitive bigots. It is unfortunate that CNN has given Laura an opportunity to spread these malicious comments across the globe.
I have never heard Laura Ingram make a single positive or complementary statement about the Obama family. Clearly, she has a problem with African Americans and specifically those in leadership positions. She needs to get a life.


Scorpion   July 30th, 2010 3:52 am ET

I agree with Janet above. This woman thinks Americans are idiots and don't understand Americans just shut off when people like her try to manipulate for the GOP> WE are aware of what is going on! WE are not idiots and when they speak like this they are not only embarrassing but they show no shame. I remember Bushes admin he wouldn't even appear in front of congress( he led that administration like a dictator). How dare the GOP point fingers at this point in history the.Obama admin did not say he's not for immigration reform, what an opportune time to sideline the real issues at a critical point in American history. These people are dangerous criminals. Want to alk about discrimination go to Scottsdale AZ. White bread Idiots. Watch the damn idiot laura speak like a GOP idiot. I also laughed when she said she only need a one bedroom apt. she lives with her dog, I feel so sorry for that dog.


Fahizah   July 30th, 2010 3:57 am ET

Laura Ingraham is a Joke, but she isn't funny!
Her thinking is reflective of the immoral, deceptive, greedy, unethical, exploitatiive and inhumane mentality that characterized the white people who invaded this country hundreds of years ago and stole it from the Native Americans and placed them on reservations in their own native lands:The sick mentality that kidnapped, killed, raped and enslaved the African Americans, and the mentality that spread white supremacy all over the world. It was insulting and off putting to see this rude, dense, knee-jerk, reactionary and most of all dishonest and disingenuous woman on your show. She needs to stay on the TV stations that cater to her kind of divisive message.


Bruiser   July 30th, 2010 3:59 am ET

Laura Ingraham is a non-stop mouth with an empty head. I wouldn't read her book if you paid me.

Larry, why do you let her interrupt over and over? It is the classic tactic of somebody who only spouts b.s. and doesn't want a reasonable argumetn to be heard.

Why don't you cut her mike like you did Prof. Hill's? She really needs it.


Bob   July 30th, 2010 4:02 am ET

How did Mark get a Job at Columbia? He has air b/w his ears.


shenygirl1   July 30th, 2010 4:06 am ET

@charles in your attempt to critique my comments about Laura Ingraham, and her lame attempts at political satire, I believe you were trying to compare this vile, vicious woman to Stephanie Miller. In what respect Charlie? Stephanie is a comedienne that happens to engage in political satire and has one of the most popular progressive talk radio shows in the country. She is not rude, vitriolic, angry or hateful and she happens to be very funny. As a conservative, I'm sure you're not one of her fans.


Scorpion   July 30th, 2010 4:17 am ET

There is way too much civil unrest I am waiting for it to pop and blow up in their faces. The nuts are going to come out of the trees and try to make history. When this happens I am going to laugh my ass off as they run for cover. Keep pushing and destroying human life. When they set fire to these corporations and target theses bastards it will be hilarious to see these fools run. I would not shake the nut tree so hard..lol, Remember we did what the Romans did with Bush( Julius Cesar) WE gave him complete power during his war ( shame on you congress) now being history repeats itself.Well you know the story. You to Brutus..lol If this country ever give complete control to any one person again they are fool. To the devil with a republic. The Greeks were ten times smarter than the Romans.Wanna leak documents leak the undercover plan for corporate control of America so we can burn them at the stakes. If they run to other countries they're just better targets. So keep shaking the nut tree people.I want a god laugh. if you don't think there will be another civil war in this country just let idiots like this keep talking.


Sunnybuoy   July 30th, 2010 4:21 am ET

CNN what a waste to air this poison... Laura Ingraham, Is she really real? She is a critic but but can't take it, She clearly showed that with her body language when Marc replied to her comments. I am interested in where someone like Laura Ingraham developed her one-way selfish mind. I think Laura, Sarah Palin and every other pretty face people without a brain, should go rest in peace...


Patricia Dwyer   July 30th, 2010 5:01 am ET

Ingrahm reading the "Obama Diaries" in black dialect is reprehensible.


Christy Bono   July 30th, 2010 5:24 am ET

Larry,

My name is Christy Bono, I am Sonny's Bono's eldest daughter, and was on a remote on your show, on the day of my Dad's funeral.

I don't understand, why, you're so enamored by Laura Ingraham, and most importantly, why your acknowledging her "Fiction" Book, that Fell on the roof of her car???
She said, she & the others she was with, was going on an Eating Strike, unless, you continued to do your show,
Well,
Damn Larry,
She's not eating, because, she's clearly on some type of Amphetimine,
She's clearly on Drugs, She's wasted......
& believe me, I know from past experience-

You embarrassed me, You couldn't even wrangle her, cocained state, or whatever she's on... mouth......

Why do you want to ...encourage, someone to – dis- respect Our President, that was elected by a majority of he Americans??

You have a great impact on people, and I'm disgusted, that you're encouraging, trashing Barack & Michelle –
And, Yes, Im questioning some of Barack's actions,
But, to put this cocaine addict on- that bag's on the Country,

Larry,
You made me sick tonite, and then because she's sll over the map, and ask's you about Brando, .....and, you self indulgently, babbled about yourself...........

Look,
Stand in that man's shoes, ............C'mon,

I was for Ross Perot from your show 20 – 25 years ago, and clearly, someone got to him to make him withdraw........

I despise, that you are encouraging, social commentary from a drug addict, – about, Barack's achievements, or lack of, .....

I'd love to hear Bill Mahr's – opinion on this –

I'm going to delete you from my TEVO, because I work for a living, and am not a 15 minute Celebrity,..............

There's Kathie Griffin, whos an established comedian, – and this Laura, woman,who is a frustrated comedian, celebrity Wanna Be.......Trashing Our Country.........

I am boycotting you, unforunately, from this show – and I've been an avid watcher for 20 – 25 years............

and boycotting – any future plans you have –

Sad..................

I'd like a response – but, most likely wont get one -and that's OK-

Just quit working against, ............are current America!!!!


GI JOE   July 30th, 2010 5:47 am ET

Lets go back to 1979 in Miami Florida. I was stationed on Homestead Air Force in the Army . I walk to the base because I did not have a car, on my way to work one morning in uniform, I was stopped by a State trooper because he said I looked like someone that might do something wrong. I;m Puerto Rican serving his Country but I can not walk down the street because I may do a crime. My point is, when they came for them, I said nothing. Now they are coming for me, who will speak up for me.


Deirdre Canning   July 30th, 2010 5:58 am ET

I am just watching the show and I was intrigued by today's topic on the Obama Diaries. One thing I have never done until now, is change channels because of an annoying guest. I can't stand to listen to Laura Ingrahams arguments and interrupting comments. Very futile and irrelevant points are being brought up and unfortunately these are probably views quite alot of Republican americans share. You have a historical president in Office, embrace it (weather liberal or republican) and help him make history with the american people while facing the problems today's world is facing.
Searching people's garages for diaries....find another hobby Laura!


Daya   July 30th, 2010 6:00 am ET

I looked at the interview that Larry had with Laura and Mark, and I must say I have travelled extensively around the world, except to the USA because I dont like the attitudes of people like Laura. They have this perception that the world depends on the USA, but it does NOT, the USA depends on the world, as we are the ones buying the US products and they desperately need the World to buy their goods. The US is only 300m, and the rest of the World is 5.7 billion, yet the USA has been trying for centuries to rule the world with a fraction of the Worlds population. If the USA carry's on with right winger's like Laura and her Arizona governor, the World will just walk away and create our own reserve currency, and consume our own products. I never believed the USA is this racist, Obama is getting blamed for all Laura's "brother" George Bush's shortcomings! You people need to wake up and smell the roses!


Florio Giolli   July 30th, 2010 6:09 am ET

Frankly I am appaled that Larry King would stoop to such length's to try to salvage what is left of his show. Have you no dignity after such a great carreer. You have to dredge the bottom of the barrel to get some woman who claims the have found the diaries of the President ofg the United Statges and prints insults and demeanes the office of the Commander and Chief of the Nation.
Shed is DISGUSTIN, but whats MORE IMPORTANT IS THAT YOU ACTUALLY LET HER GET ON AND CARRY ON LIKE THE HATE FILLED RIGHT WING BIGOT SHE IS.
Can you find no better guest than that. How can you have let thisd happen, your show in an embarasment to this Nation


Solonka Jackson   July 30th, 2010 6:09 am ET

Larry how can you allow someone like Laura on your show? She is so annoying and irritating every time she opens her dirty mouth. She is a joke to the wise American people.She does not have manners at all when she keeps on interrupting professor Mark. By the way why is she angry to immigrants while she is of polish and Irish origin? Larry you can do better than having search people on your show. Laura is a wicked witch.


stefi   July 30th, 2010 6:18 am ET

I believe this woman (Laura Ingraham)is over the top opinionated and her book is only fictional for what is worth. Ground cheering?what a joke!!!
Have some respect for your President Obama and your First Lady.
Be assured They deserve it.


GoodGrief   July 30th, 2010 8:45 am ET

Why don't we swap people with Mexico? For every immigrant that wants to come to our side of the border and work to support their families, the US can send them one of the millions of dead beat dads/moms hiding below the radar of our court system by living with another, not working so they show to the courts they aren't making an income. Send our criminal dead beat dads and moms over to Mexico and let the Mexican show them their justice since our courts don't seem to understand what they are doing, or care what they are doing!

Anyone who is willing to work is OK in my book. Get rid of the terrorist co-workers and bosses in our country that wreak chaos on those that are willing to work.


John   July 30th, 2010 10:10 am ET

Hey guys, don't get worked up about Laura Ingram. As far as I know she has a radio talk show and, surprise!!!, she's a Fox no-news contributor. By commenting on her, you are making her relevent. Relax she's a comedian like Glenn Beck. Looks like she had about 40 cult followers applauding her in the background. She is no different than Michelle Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Caulter, etc. Honestly, she and this bunch make Sarah Palin look like a girl scout. They brainwash all the people who will not take a look at both sides of issues and consequently wind up laughing all the way to the bank at the expense of the weakness of their followers. Their talking points are all the same. You here one, you hear them all: Governments too big, we are overtaxed, Obama is going to take our guns away, We have to excercise our second amendment rights, Obama is worse than Hitler, Lenin, and Stalin. Obama is a communist. Obama is the most dangerous man in the world. These are also the views of Newt Gingrich, who is an intelligent individual. So you know what their main goal is. From day one, the tea party, the birthers, Fox, and all of the above made it their mission to destroy this president. If you ever wondered if racism still exists, look and listen to this crowd and you'll find that racism is very much alive and well. These types go to bed every night and bang their heads against the wall wondering how could the voters have elected a black man as president. It's not enough just to debate and disagree with his policies and vote him out. The goal is to destroy him professionally and personally, while they laugh all the way to the bank. Guys, let Larry bring on these clowns, so the viewers can see what they stand for, which is absolutely nothing, but making money. Unfortunately, many Americans refuse to be informed and educated outside the walls of ultra conservative radio and Fox. If they would at least watch some of CNN's programming, they might have a more open mind as to their views on issues and policies. The above individuals are nothing more than a propaganda machine to force their views on Americans. I know about propaganda. I was born and raised in Poland under the Soviet Communist Regime.

@Christy Bono

Please become a regular blogger on these sites. You have your ducks in a row and I cannot stop laughing at the way you express your feelings..It's both serious and has that touch of humor that can only come from sunny impressions of your father. You inherently are a "chip off the block"...Wish you well..caj..


Cheryl Black-Blair   July 30th, 2010 3:45 pm ET

Larry and Executive Producers,
Unlike some of the others who have posted comments..I AM expecting an E-MAIL...Iam expecting you to contact me...My home is set to go on the Auction block on August 27th through no fault of my own...I have a story to tell..my sister has a story to tell...I am a former broadcast journalist and EXPECT to hear from somebody immediately if not sooner.
I want to know why You are not covering real stories?
In regards to Lisa Black versus USA/Department of Veterans affair...do you realize that we have had men outside our home messing with our electrical system...the following day the electrical outlets sparks begin to emit sparks.....Come see my home..someone has messed with the electrical system. The street light no longer worked. Our phonelines have seeminly been tapped.
In regar to Citimortage/Citigroup headed by two foreign individuals at least one if not bith Indian..and educated in India..Citi has taken American tax dollars in one of the biggest bailouts in US history..They claim I have not paid my mortgage since last summer..which is a lie.I have copies of of the cancelled checks...We were approved by Making Homes Affordable....the Obama plan ....and begin to make payments... only to find out that Citi has decided not to take part in the Obama plan...Let me go a step further...Homestart has taken to date, $3400.00..Having done some research, I found out that it is illigal to take money from residents in Florida..
So you have this scam going on..certain people being taken advantage of/targeted....I would go so far as to call it a hate crime...
Looking forward to hearing from someone at CNN....because this is just the tip of the iceberg.
You have my e-mail address. I have a rare disease, called acute intermittent porphyria...there is much more Larry to this story...this story doesn't begin here in Florida..it begins in Connecticut with a judge...and the former Commissioner of Workers compensation...It begins with a broken judicial system.

Smith in Oregon   August 12th, 2010 9:12 pm ET

Wikileaks has announced that after it's proof readers go over several thousand more US, Afghanistan and Pakistan Military documents, those also will be posted on Wikileaks website and possibly also released to various News Media and Newspapers around the world.

GOOD! America's Shadow Government agencys and the US Military Complex are trying to keep all information regarding the War in Afghanistan and it's Taliban backers in Pakistan information away from the World, away from the American Public eyes and ears.

They want America to give it's sons and daughters but to hel with telling the American survivors if their son's were murdered by friendly fire, to hel with telling the American people their multi-Billion dollar cash donation to Pakistan's 2005 earthquake survivors went instead to the Pakistiani ISI to enlist and eqiup Suicide Bombers in Afghanistan, equip and supply Taliban fighters in Pakistan to murder as many American and NATO soldiers as they could.

The already released documents outline and show the US Commanders didn't tell the helicopter pilots and their flight crews the Pakistani ISI had acquired and supplied shoulder mounted heat seeking anti-aircraft missiles and American and NATO Pilots died as a result.

A great many American soldiers DIED because the released information was not told to them, which entirely busts the propaganda that someone 'might' die or wikileaks is going to have blood on their hands, BS! American soldiers and American Pilots already have DIED because US Commanders in Afghanistan did not tell them what is shown and outlined in hundreds of US and Pakistan Military documents.

As long as US Commanders are silent on information which is killing US Soldiers, brave young men and women are going to release that information to sites like Wikileaks, and World New's Papers and Journalists to get that information out and SAVE LIVES in the process.


B Martin   August 12th, 2010 9:13 pm ET

Are You SERIOUS????? Laura Ingram.... is that your impression of the first lady? Oh and the crowd did find that funny, where is Breitburt when you need him! As a black woman I am totally offended that she would interpret the FIRST LADY in that manner when she has never presented herself in that fashion!


Aandre Nirenberger   August 12th, 2010 9:13 pm ET

Dear Larry

I am a natureliazed Americain, And I cannot understand how you can have such a lier on your show.

How inocent it is to find 3 diaries of our President , the first Lady and our vice President just like that. Is she a Clown or is she paid to be stupid.

Andre


Michael Armstrong Sr.   August 12th, 2010 9:15 pm ET

Not unpatriotic but out of touch in the head .


TH   August 12th, 2010 9:15 pm ET

Is she suppose to be funny? She's NOT. Nor is she very bright.

What a waste of air time – she has NOTHING truthful or interesting to say –
I've changed the channel


deanne   August 12th, 2010 9:18 pm ET

No matter what one thinks of the President, this is the worse interview in memory on LKL. Time to change the channel. Please Larry no more of this silly,shallow dialogue.


Garibaldi   August 12th, 2010 9:19 pm ET

When your guest, Laura Ingraham, reads something as the First Lady, she does so with a "black woman accent" that is offensive. If she has something against what she's saying, she can do so without the accent. Larry - you should have called her out on that.


Carol Dain   August 12th, 2010 9:19 pm ET

Larry..Why are you wasting air time with this woman. She has nothing worthwhile to say and thinks it is cute to denigrate the President.
She really makes a fool out of herself with every sentence.


John Loftus   August 12th, 2010 9:19 pm ET

Larry, re:Lauren Ingram- if I were an African American, I would wince when I heard Ms Ingram use an ever so slight accent in a make up quote for the President.


Smith in Oregon   August 12th, 2010 9:20 pm ET

Ben Quayle recently called President Obama the worst American president in history. His father Dan Quayle is very far down on the list of lackluster forgettable Vice Presidents.

Ben Quayle is one of 10 candidates in the GOP primary race in Arizona’s conservative 3rd district well known for it's racist approach to it's growing Hispanic population.

Ben Quayle aptly shows 'The Spud doesn't fall far from the tree' and it also shows the incredible state of Morass in the racist, bigoted and toxic Republican Potty.

90% of American voters feel the Republican Potty would make America's economy worse and would make America's economic recovery more difficult.

During these past two years, the Republican Potty of No help and No idea has lock-stepped worked to block, obstruct and filibuster job stimulus and economic recovery legislation time and time again. It appears the American Voters are noticing.

Flush the Potty out of America's Politics in Nov. 2010, vote straight Democratic across the board!


Pat Tebbutt   August 12th, 2010 9:21 pm ET

you should all know that I am on oxygen , blood thinners medicationAs a Canadian I am horrified at what politics has done to your country.
I am white as snowand 79 to boot. The hate that exists within U.S
frankly shocks me. As for Canada,s Health care,--all I pay is 6.11
per prescription a small amount of tax to my province of Ontario-the
fabrications about waits for surgery etc or highly exaggerated! Your
present hostess is frankly disgusting to me!


Toni L Parker   August 12th, 2010 9:21 pm ET

I honestly believe that Laura Ingrham Is a Lunatic. She has alot of anger management issues. Get a clue. And I am a liberal!!!!


Maryann Fair   August 12th, 2010 9:24 pm ET

I do not get involved with these type of discussions but I totally agree with Laura Ingram on her views of Obama and Michele. Our country is hurting and basically Obama is either in the air or on the air for himself and a political party and not working for the country as a whole. Michele should not be using Air Force One or Two with ramped up security to take vacations outside of the US. We are all in trouble and the President and his wife need to understand this and display their contribution in their actions, not their words. My two cents


Justin   August 12th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

Ms. Ingraham's feigned outrage at President Obama's hosting Paul McCartney at the White House during the gulf oil spill is really something to marvel at. Still, as a member of the party of principles, I wonder what Ingraham has to say about Bush's statements during the March 2004 White House Press Correspondent's Dinner – when he mocked the search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq with a slide show of him peering around the Oval Office looking for "those weapons of mass destruction." It was really hilarious, especially since over 30 American soldiers died that month in Iraq (they were looking for weapons of mass destruction too – get it?)


Pink   August 12th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

I guess tonite is the nite for Dr. Lauras. Between Laura Ingraham’s (on Larry King's Show) and the other Dr. Laura using the "N" word it's a shame. In my humble opinion releasing The Obama Diaries (and if they are true) is an invasion of privacy. I could see if Obama was out of office and it was 10 or 20 years from now. As for the other Dr. Laura using the "N" word numerous times, and even suggesting someone shouldn't marry out of their race is; ridiculous. She needs to be fired immediately.


Arnold MI   August 12th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

Everyone is constantly bickering about immigration so why not passes a reform bill that applies the same law to everyone?

Immigration – How to fight

The way to fight immigration is from the inside out. To do this we need a National ID Card.

[1] Link the state driver license computers to a central database in Washington, D.C.
[2] Link all credit / debit cards, Social Security, Driver License’, passports, etc. to the National ID Card.
[3] Require fingerprints and a digital picture on the National ID Card.
[4] Merge the National ID Card with Homeland Security.
[5] Update all computers that accept credit and debit cards, [IE retail stores, gas stations, government buildings, workplaces, etc.,] to accept the National ID Card complete with the digital picture ID and fingerprint reader.

Benefits: Once the system is fully operational an immigration crackdown can be randomly performed by Homeland Security. Very simple, Homeland Security issues a level five domestic crackdown and all businesses must require a National ID Card for any transaction even cash. This would make something as simple as buying groceries or filling the gas tank a major inconvenience for people without the ID Card, and would be a deterrent to people coming into the US illegally and would also assist law enforcement in capturing fugitives and finding missing persons. Since this law would apply to everyone, there would not be any “profiling”.

Other Benefits:
[1] Identity theft. A web cam and fingerprint reader could be connected to a PC and used to identify individuals.
[2] Online banking, shopping, and bill paying.
[3] With all credit and debit cards linked to the National ID Card, stolen cards would be a thing of the past.
[4] Online access to confidential records like Social Security, Medicare, Driver License, etc. would be secure.
[5] Medicare Fraud could be prevented by requiring a National ID Card for all medical services.
[6] Airline security would be easier to monitor and e-verify would be replaced.
[7] Online voting could be implemented and performed at home and individuals could take there time and review the literature before placing a vote.

Many states require a resident to carry a state issued driver license or ID card so why not require everyone to carry a National ID Card. My wallet is bulging with plastic cards and I would enjoy replacing them with a single card and since I can not go shopping without my wallet, it would not be an inconvenience to carry a single card.

UPDATE: May 6, 2010

The ultimate electronic wallet! By attaching all debit / credit cards, Social Security & Medicare Cards, driver license, visa, TSA clearance for airlines, etc. to a National ID Card we could develop a pocket size electronic wallet. The electronic wallet would be approximately 4 x 4 x .25 inches. On the top side would be a fingerprint reader for the four fingers, on the bottom side would be a thumb print reader, and in one end would be a camera, and on the other end a transmitter such as infrared or radio wave. This would store all of our personal information and could be used for everything that we currently carry in our bulging wallets, including cash.


TEE   August 12th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

Laura is drowning in her remarks in defending her book, its senseless!! She should be ashame and everybody behind her that is clapping. To joke about where President Obama was during the oil spill and President Bush was on his ranch during "Hurricane Katrina", come on folks.


newlinecuts   August 12th, 2010 9:29 pm ET

this man has the answer to this pundit crazy statements
she knows what she saying is crazy and lacks all the facts
pundits always want to talk from the base the mob if you want to call it.


Thrivi   August 12th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

Please ask Laura what Obama has done different from Bush about immigration.


lajoyce johnson   August 12th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

Your really going out with a bang having the racist Laura Ingraham on your show tonight telling all these lies she wrote in her fiction book about the Obama's. How come she didn't write a book about the people who came before Obama? They are the one's to whom created the mess government is in today.


Jimmie   August 12th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

Why does your program give an audience to people like Laura Ingram. She is one of the most hateful guest you've ever had on your program. She is the true axis of evil on cable news.


Trinity   August 12th, 2010 9:31 pm ET

I am a liberal and can take anything but listening to Laura left a bitter taste in my mouth. One thinsg is clear, her opnion is not on the president, it is on a man of color. In fact her book should have been the diary of a black man. This is disgusting I am surprised that she can talk that way like the present administration has done nothing but destruction while she has nothing to say about the past administrations! I couldn't listen to the rest of the Show Larry this was too insultive. There's too much hatred for Obama because he is black, not becaue of his policies. There hgas been worse policiues before, terrible in fact but because it's obama, or his wife...
What a shame!


sandra alvaraado   August 12th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

from a very humble prespective... why is laura blaming obama for all the problem that has been dragging from prior administrations. whether they have been republic or democrat.

now.. for instance the immigration. does she possibly think that this problem has all occurred in 18 month.. immigration has been a problem for years..... and mainly because illegal immigration bring econmy to this country.. you how many illegal are hired by american companies and do not have to huge expenses on their employees. so do not blame obama..... blame the whole culture that has ignored illegal immigrants.


BIG D   August 12th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

Larry,

Why is it when a certain race feels threatened they call out everything that they once turned a blind eye to? Where was all these clowns like Laura at when Someone else was declaring victory and running us in the dirt. These people are very funny and PHONY!!!!!!!!!!!!


Jon Rabun   August 12th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

I have to agree with Laura Ingram, it is going in the wrong direction,
and Mr. Rangle.......well it speaks for it's self.


Justin   August 12th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

And btw, while I'm sure Ingraham and the rest of the GOP would like to smirk and say "Bush isn't President," the fact is, almost every single Republican in Congress, and quite a few of the candidates, stood by his horrible, destructive policies and his betrayals of the military. Bush might not be relevant (although it's hard to say that a guy who destabilized the Middle East and unfettered Iran in their pursuit of nuclear weapons isn't relevant), but the Republicans' role in supporting his disasterous policies for 8 years without question certainly is.


Lisa   August 12th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

When was the last time that anyone was in office that did anything they set out to do on the campaign trail???

As soon as anyone gets in office everything changes.


Dan   August 12th, 2010 9:36 pm ET

Larry, I think I speak for every educated person in the U.S. when I say that this Laura Ingraham lady is keeping something from us. Now, there are a few reasons why I say this: 1. She is clearly a pro at rhetoric, which means she is capable of compensating for a lack of supporting evidence with poignant oration, 2. Her story about how she acquired the diaries is doubtful. I don't know much about her professional or political history, but I find it strange that someone would pick her to be the recipient of personal diaries that could compromise the Obama agenda, especially by leaving them on the hood of her car, 3. It could be her rather racist Obama impression, but the language in which the diaries are written undermines their authenticity. The entries seem to have been manipulated or produced in order to assign narcissistic personalities to the Obamas. The language and content is contrived and generally unlikely to be found in a diary that has been written for writer's-eyes-only. Do you really think Obama wants to humor himself that bad? 4. Have the Obama's reported missing diaries recently? This stuff just doesn't add up. I want to see some serious proof that these diaries are authentic and not just created by a right wing propagandist looking to affect the upcoming election


Diane   August 12th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

Laura seems to be competing with First Lady Michelle Obama. She has been inspired to wear sleeveless attire more in the recent 18 months.

Ask her if she has anything good to say about Mrs. Obama. She seems to obssessed with taking Michelle on personally.

Does she feels that she has to take up the mantel for her base of women?


Mary Guasco   August 12th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

She is getting on my last nerve. Nothing she says has validity. She interrupts with nothing to say. It's so laughable. Please have someone that has a brain on your show.


Pink   August 12th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

Tee, I agree. And it's a shame that anyone can make a buck off of someone else's demise.


Lisa   August 12th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

Arnold in Michigan, your idea about the National ID card is directly out of the Bible's Book of Revelation. Maybe we need a microchip too, to complete the prophecy.


Ben   August 12th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

Ii am so disappointed in Larry King and CNN for allowing Laura airtime on your network. We don't need this sort of drivel. It's not funny, not entertaining and clearly biased ( Icould use far worse words). I' m changing the channel, i dont even know who to watch on tv anymore. Its all garbage.


Lisa   August 12th, 2010 9:41 pm ET

Anyone is better than Bush, but why is Michele always taking vacations using our tax money? I would love to afford a vacation right now.


Keith Loveless   August 12th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

When Laura Ingraham mocked Mrs. Obama "sleevelessness" I wondered where the sleeves on her dress were?


Wolf Duvernoy,M.D.   August 12th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

Larry,

I have been following your show since you started and have admired your ability to remain objective and get to the real issues. I am disappointed in you presenting Laura Ingrahams aggressive and politically directed show in front of an obviously easily convinced auditorium on line. She and her supportive followers don't hesitate with anything to destroy our president including maligning his family.

All the best Wolf Duvernoy


James   August 12th, 2010 9:44 pm ET

Haha. Mark is just overwhelming the ignorant and obnoxious Laura.


Allison   August 12th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

I may not agree with either speaking tonite, but have the RESPECT for other humans and let the guy speak!! Its Rude, and you can not understand what EITHER person is saying. I turned it off because its like watch kids at the school yard-who can talk louder and quicker wins....seems like a waste of air time. No one is getting their point across when you cant hear what that point is


Crystal   August 12th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

I am sick of hearing The President is (black he is half white).What does it matter,take off the dark racist glasses or can you?I never heard when other white presidents white ones oh my hes white.Racist is alive and well and living esp on the other side of isle.Quit crying and whining it grew old along time ago.I am white Laura but I dont think skin color defines us,you seem too.Thank God For Marc.


Mariella   August 12th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

This could be a great discussion. But the lady keeps interrupting.
I am unable to follow the argument as a result.
This happens in most of your Shows. CNN will have to have a strict
policy that one speaks, the others listen or they will be asked to leave.
It is annoying and has caused CNN to lose audience.


Paul   August 12th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

Larry I’m not against the federal government helping people, what I am against is having the government of United States assuming the responsibility that the parents should take on themselves. The First Lady has no business asking for money for nutrition isn’t that the parents responsibility. My understanding is that there programs already in place to help people with that, wic, bridge card just to name two here in MI. It’s up to the individual to purchase the proper food for the family, if not do you really think the government is going to be able to control those people any more. Please stop the foolish spending.


deborah   August 12th, 2010 9:45 pm ET

Larry, I love your show; however, I had to turn the television off three quarters of the way through. Even if Laura has something to say, it is so difficult to hear her or anyone else. She is obnoxious! Looking forward to Willie!


stan Lovatt   August 12th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

Why do allow your guests to talk over one another. it is a turnoff which is what i,m doing now bye


Wiski   August 12th, 2010 9:48 pm ET

I think Mark did quite a good job in answering Laura in that debate.
I was impressed. It was nice to watch too..


Carla Hall D'Ambra   August 12th, 2010 9:51 pm ET

Laura Ingraham is a walking insult to women. She embarrasses me.
She honestly thinks her sarcasm is intelligent. Can someone please tell these GOP women that sarcasm is not a thinking person's tool. It's really ridiculous that she is so nasty. A disgrace to women!


Diane   August 12th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

Yes, she (Laura) is extemely jealous of Michele Obama. She has been wearing sleeveless dresses over the last 18 months as if she is trying to make a point for her Daughters of the American Revolution base.


Dodie   August 12th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

Orly Taitz needs to get a real life and pay for all court costs


Bayo   August 12th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

I think Laura Ingraham made up the facts about her book and she seems to be very ignorant about majority of the point she makes about the President, First Lady, and Democrat in general. I think its time to stop using media power to send wrong message to the public. Because you have a Radio Talk Show does not make you an expert in Politics. Looking at her facial expression she just wanted to sell some books, take advantage of the current political and economic situation of the country by just saying whatever comes to her mouth. I am tired of people complaining about the President, forgetting what the last Eight years before Obama assume office was all about (WAR! WAR!! WAR!!!) No major economic plan during Bush era. Think and put your self in the position before Talking out of Ignorance.


Arnold MI   August 12th, 2010 9:55 pm ET

Why isn't Obama releasing the wiki leaks like he did with the Gitmo Torture camp?


Marie Pappas   August 12th, 2010 9:57 pm ET

Mr.King
Please do the Black community a Favor and allow Dr.Cornell West to debate that racist Laura Ingraham. The guy you had on tonight does not speak well for US.
Tea Party is upset by a black guy we all know what this is about.
No one was complaining about Bush while he and his friends profited and still are!


Dodie   August 12th, 2010 9:57 pm ET

Laura Ingraham is on my list along with Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin and Pat Buchanan as they never have anything new or useful to discuss or contribute. Their focus appears to be bashing President Obama and further segregating this country. I consider it a total waste having this woman on your show. Not to mention, you just wasted one hour of precious air time on July 29th and again, tonight.

The only value her book has is to keep one warm on a cold night…in the fireplace!


Jane   August 12th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

Why on earth would Laura Ingraham put herself in the position of trying to match wits with unarmed opponent?


Elizabeth   August 12th, 2010 10:06 pm ET

Obama is the not the cause of everything going wrong in this world today.He is not the cause of the high unemployment rates. The country was in a deep recession when the present Government took over. Obama inherited over a trillion dollars in debt. Jobs were being lost in thousands a month. Also we have to keep in mind that modern technology has replaced a lot of human labor.


Darlene Curro   August 12th, 2010 10:06 pm ET

I had to turn your program off; Ms Ingraham hasn't the decency to allow anyone else to speak. Even worse, she's ignorant. Barak Obama said exactly why he doesn't make a point of calling himself bi-racial. But she's too busy talking to listen. Your other guest (professor) was probably interesting; too bad he didn't get a chance to say anything.


pink   August 12th, 2010 10:12 pm ET

What I want to know is why don't the people that say Obama isn't doing a good job come up with some concrete suggestions regarding the economy, jobs, etc. All they do is complain, but never have any real concrete solutions.


b.allen   August 12th, 2010 10:18 pm ET

i actually voted for obama. i did not vote for obama to take vacations. i did not vote for his wife. i am so in agreement with laura ingraham. kudos to her for stating what i have been thinking. i also think some of the monies spent on these vacations should be paid by the obama's
.


Mike Paschenko   August 12th, 2010 10:20 pm ET

Larry, great interview tonight with Laura Ingraham and rebuttle by Mark Hill. The View asked an interesting question to President Obama regarding his ethnicity He feels that the world sees him as an African American. I see the President as a White African American.

Larry, please do not retire.


Pink   August 12th, 2010 10:37 pm ET

b. allen: So you actually think that the President and his family shouldn't take vacations. If so; that's so ridiculous. Everyone needs a stress reliever, and that's what vacations are. I swear; some of the people that blog have no sense of life, and enjoyment. Yes we're in a recession; but does that mean someone can't get away every once in a while. Go figure.


Cajazz76:24:8   August 13th, 2010 12:03 am ET

b. allen

Those with common sense, and are informed, know that the First Lady DID pay for a portion of her vacation. FACT..


Jennifer trotter   August 13th, 2010 12:10 am ET

What happen to the Bush diaries? It took President Bush less than 24 hours to call a war and get us in this debt that you want President Obama to get us out of? How about Congress not agreeing on whether they tie is red blue that day is what is holding this economy up?


Laine Coleman   August 13th, 2010 12:14 am ET

I love Laura!!! When will she come to visit Austin, Texas? I'll buy her a cup of coffee!!

Laine


mary   August 13th, 2010 12:16 am ET

yuck! not an intellectual! Palin kind of woman....please have guests with some content instead of this fluff! thanks, mary


sylvia   August 13th, 2010 12:17 am ET

Laura complains a lot but what has she done to help the american people. She is on national TV but she get paid to be on TV, so why not take that money that she gets help others. I hope some that can say things like that can do something and not just complain.


JWegar   August 13th, 2010 12:18 am ET

I cannot believe this woman, she know for sure that she would never spoken out if it was G. Bush


PappaSly   August 13th, 2010 12:20 am ET

OMG, all you hear today is how Dr. Laura should have not said the "N" word on the air. Yet you can interview Laura Ingram about the Obama diary's (claim's), and she starts to "mock" the African American heritage. During Laura's interview with Larry she portrayed the comical version of a black women who is angry. She added the "vocabulary" in a very distructive way. She lowered herself to bobbing her head all over as if she was a cartoon character, of a black female. She need to check herself, or everyone needs to leave Dr. Laura alone.


Laura Holloway   August 13th, 2010 12:20 am ET

Just a reminder, Laura: GWB played guitar wiuth Country Singer Mark Willis at 2 pm on August 30th 2005, the day after Katrina made landfall. Rather worse than Obama's jam session, I would think.


Adrian   August 13th, 2010 12:25 am ET

Why is she only stating her opinions and not facts? She does not seem intelligent. This is a not a good look for her. Good night all.


mary in toronto   August 13th, 2010 12:31 am ET

Wow Laura seems to think boorish beats brains or substance. She is a typical republican in that she talks over everyone believing louder is better. Now I see why she had to make up a diary about Obama, she just hasn't got the knowledge to deal with the facts! For a public speaker she really should get rid of that twitchy jerky thing and that repetitive uuuh.


Dodie   August 13th, 2010 12:32 am ET

Very tragic. The flooding and mudslides in China has killed numerous people with thousands missing. My condolences to all the families who either lost a family member or have family missing.


jean   August 13th, 2010 12:41 am ET

Larry, why do you have such an immature sounding woman such as Laura on your show. She seems like a child that hates democrats so much she can't have an intelligent conversation without the silly, hateful remarks. And I loved her response about Bush's 96 vacations compared to Obama's 38, laura ,we had just gone to war during that time and been attacked. It must be great to spin everything to suit your political party, I sure hope America stops listening to this crap.


jack   August 13th, 2010 12:45 am ET

Laura is loud and rude. Why should she be interviewed with a cheering section behind her? When she talked about criticizing President Bush, she is misrepresenting her approach toward the worst prez in US history. She was one of those far right pundits that praised him to no end.


Chandra Stonewall   August 13th, 2010 12:48 am ET

No, Ms. Ingram, I would have to disagree with you. MOST Americans are NOT trying to get past a "hyphenated America". I am and African-American and proud of it. My hypenated tag should be a clue to others that I belong to a rich culture that adds to my "just being American." I find it highly offensive that you or others in your "party" would be so insensitive to what makes us "hyphenated Americans" who we are.


Ben Howell   August 13th, 2010 12:48 am ET

Sleeveless Laura comes over as having a disdain for the President and particularly the first lady as is detected in her voice and nonchalance and the wry humour inserted often. She could as well have blown air with her tongue between her lips as far as her attitude is concerned.

LAURA YOU MUST LEARN TOO LISTEN ...SHUCKS. I can still hear her interrupting ...sorry.

Laura employed a tactic by using some T- Party ("T" for terro...oops) hacks behind her to applaud her vapid utterances and so try to gain some semblance of popular approval.

Lots of Ab Hominem comments that really sounded childish at times.

I suspect a tinge of jealousy toward the more elegant, stylish, graceful bold and beautiful Michelle. She is like no other First Lady and in many ways.

BTW ... who's that Laura woman...a comedienne?


John   August 13th, 2010 12:51 am ET

Larry,
I've watched your shows for a long time and enjoyed the fair interviews conducted with your guests. Today's show with Laura Ingram left me quite confused about your motive - the show was very biased in terms of giving Laura an all white conservative audience in the background that cheered everything she said while her "opponent" Mark Lamont had no audience to acknowledge him. What's up with that Larry and please don't blame that boo boo on age or amnesia, cause you are youthful.? I'll wait to hear this explanation that is fit for a King.

John.
CNN Groupie.


sue henson   August 13th, 2010 12:54 am ET

Who is Laura....I've never understood how someone knows so much more than the President? She irritates me!!!!!!


kayumba kanama   August 13th, 2010 1:02 am ET

Mr. King,
I watch your show quite a bit but I always wonder what it takes as a common individual to be invited to your show. I am watching Laura Ingaham on your show right now and I must say that she is very eloquent but yet living in in denial. I know that I would debate her very well. Please send me an invitation. Thank you.

Kayumba


Leslie in Los Angeles   August 13th, 2010 1:02 am ET

I was trying to enjoy tonight's show but Laura's rudeness in talking over Mark, again and again, was very frustrating. She was monologing instead of dialoging. As Mark was an unknown quantity for me, I would very much have liked to hear Mark's responses but she clearly did not allow him to speak his turn. Ill-mannered people come in both parties. Larry should have stopped it and not let her continue her monologues. I am not inclined to watch another show when she will appear.


karen   August 13th, 2010 1:05 am ET

I am Canadian and I can't believe that this women is allowed to even write a book called the " Obama Diaries" who is she foooling that the diaries appeared on her car hood one night...from that the start of the interview I felt sick that she thinks that the American public would believe this!!!! She is making a fast million on behalf of lies. Everyone in the world knows the first lady and her daughter went to Spain through the media as they should being major world figure heads and representing your country. I am on the outside looking in and George Bush Jr. was definately instrumental on the financial demise of the USA and President Obama is slopping up the mess of the Bush administration. MAYBE I SHOULD WRITE A BOOK ON HOW TO MAKE A FAST BUCK RE: LAURA INGRAM ON HOW TO FOLLOW DAILY TABLOID GOSSIP BEACUSE THAT'S WHAT SHE APPEARS TO BE!!!

Way to go Larry King!! You had Laura Ingram's side of the issues. At long last the conservatives can speak the truth. The liberal basis is so apparent that I was completely in shock when I turned the T V on and heard the rights voice for a change. I personally could care less if I'm politically correct. It's to bad others have to be such followers.

Larry,
You screwed up on this one - A fair opponent of Laura Ingram could have been Rachel Maddow. You allowed Laura to get away with murder.

TERROR BABY ALERT...TERROR BABY ALERT...

Weighing all of 10 to 15 pounds they low crawl on the floor
And are too tiny, too small, too weak to even open a door
Carrying up 8 ounces of highly explosive poop
In camouflaged diapers that drag and droop
They slobber acidic drool from their toothless gums
And can detonate hell if their bellies need crumbs
Will kill you with laughter with every sound that they make
This terror baby alert crap is nothing 'butt' fake...

Compliments of the right-wing lunatics that are too stunted and sterile to make sense...

Larry hit a new low with Laura. It was an infomercial. Larry go home.


Alex   August 13th, 2010 3:20 am ET

Larry,
I am so disappointed in your selection of tonights celebrity: Laura Ingram – that prompts me to write this comment very late tonight.

First, these diaries are pure fiction. In the same way that Laura's opinion are pure fiction. And to top it off, she had a large group of followers, that like children, were laughing and agreeing with every fart she erupted from her mouth. Honestly, she belongs with Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, and perhaps she should write their speeches. Who in her right mind criticizes the president at the height of two wars, a deep recession and countless problems, including racial problems?

She is more like an incendiary flame thrower that burns everything on her path and comes out victorious with millions of dollars in her hands after defacing the president of the Divided States of America !

Please consider someone of great stature next time, a scientist, a novel prize winner, a hero. Please stop this vitriolic environment we are all so turned off by.

Thanks

Um, what is that? Fact, fiction? Larry, you should demand more from your guests!

I really think Laura needs a lesson in geo-politics. Obama has already canceled his trip to Indonesia several times due to crisis in U.S. As a major partner in war against terrorism Indonesia does need a visit. Spain, one of the coalition of the willing who pulled out of Bush's war is also a potential supporter of what should be a UN war in Afghanistan. I am so very tired of those with such negativity and little regard to what is really going on getting airtime on your show.

Gosh what a waste of time. Laura-Fox news-Ingraham!
Dear Larry. Do you REALLY need to have these kind of simplistic Obama-Bashers on your show? All they have to "offer" is what they believe does not work... Any solutions around, what could be done better? Oh ja: They for example would have preferred to let hundreds of thousands of teachers have to loose their jobs. Who cares... It would have affected public school only. Republicans send THEIR children to private schools of course.. So why bother... And we need uneducated children to do the jobs the chinese are doing right now for a buck an hour right? We could then easily put any stimulus package aside. What a wonderful (republican) world! By thw way: It's the republicans, not Obama, who "adore" Chavez... With Fox News they already run their own news-network on which they can get on spreading their lies across the country. Sorry Larry, but that was a very poor show.

Larry, we live in Germany and have to carry proof of legal entry all the time with us. The police are authorized to stop us and ask us for the documents. When we enter United States at any airports, they check our papers and then only let us enter. Why should the illegals get in by violating the law and then have rights? They have babies here and we give the babies citizenship. Illegals mock us and our legal system and stay in the country knowing they are not supposed. Why is this violating of law any different than say robbing or even illegal speeding. Why can't we heavily fine employers who give jobs to these poor people and violate the law? When are we going to defend our laws? Will Mexican authorities let a person in without visa if the country does not have any such arrangement (i.e. U.S. citizens do not need visitors VISA but a African country's citizen may need). I hope media pushes the cause of not letting citizenship to babaies if one or both parents are ilegals so they don't raid us of our Medicaid and Social Secuirty funds.

Hallo, I am back!!!
LKL kept deleting my blogs, so I just stopped sending them. However, since you may missed my children of a brilliant brain, the blogs, I am back to please you or get you upset.

Michelle Obama, as the First Lady, is not entirely a private person!!!
She lives in the White House, talks about politics as a member of the team occupying that lovely house and have secret service guards 24/7, costing the taxpayers a fortune.

We have real problems in this country, millions unemployed, thousands losing their homes every month, just to name a few.
Her trip to Spain may be called "private", however it is not!!!
She may have paid her portion of the costs, however, who paid for the 8-10 secret service people and for all the other expenses resulting from her selfish and insensetive vacation? It costed the taxpayers hundreds of thousands, when at the same time millions go to bad hungry every day.

We, the liberals and independents, put Barack Obama into the WH and if we want to be creditable, than we cannot just pound on the Bush administration, – regardless how well deserved it may be -, but we also must watch over the administration we helped to put in power.
As Michael Moore so apply said: Mr. President, when do you plan to do what you promised and how about showing a little backbone and not worry what Fox News may say about you?
And your wife should had her vacation in the USA, leaving the money in our country.

Larry Ms. Ingraham do not get it, she's like the rest of her friends Bill O', Beck, Hannity and Limbaugh no matter what the President does its not right are good enough for them. And Laura does not understand if you are white in america you are a privilege person from birth, all doors are open to you, where as if you are black you are a second class citizen from birth, She need to walk in a black person shoes for a week or two may be then she will understand what its like to be black in america. Also Laura and the republicans are up set because Mr. Obama was not suppose to win it was Mr. McCain who was suppose to win not a black man. There plan backfired on them they the republicans did not think enough white people would vote for a black man for president. They can get over the fact that a black man is president of the United States of America.

What the GOP wants for America.
The New American Worker
City Maufacturing $1,350 month and work average week 48 hrs.
Rural Maufacturing $850 month and work average 55 hrs.
So kill the demand who need to supply. You can't afford any way. So why worry about unemployment then. Cheaper to work one person and longer hours than two.
Low-cost workers and tax avoidance for all American Firms and the top 2%.
American Firms don't have to worry with social benefit systems for pensions, medical insurance, unemployment insurance, workers' compensation and the like cause these are welfare items.
Pension and medical insurance systems paid into by employers and employees do not exist.
Is this America we want for our children? Profits above everything.
Can you tell me thats not what they really want?

DAN QUAYLE NEVER LIKED ITALIANS, NEITHER DID NIXON..QUAYLE MADE FUN OF MARIO CUOMO'S FIRST NAME,,REFERRINF TO HIM AS "MAREEOH"..THEN ONE OF QUAYLE'S SONS MARRIED AN ASIAN..

Living in China and seeing Laura Ingraham on Larry King left me ashamed of our media, That the media is willing to accrue money from such a vitriolic so called American citizen, who will malign our country by speaking so disrespectfully about our president's wife, is shameful. Millions and millions of people in Asia saw this show. They heard this insignificant mean, ugly woman disgrace our country by speaking about Michelle Obama with such utter disrespect. Clearly Larry King and the network he is on, are groveling for money. Otherwise they would not have allowed such an "unpatriotic" performance to happen on their show. I am disgusted.
