Elisabeth Hasselbeck has some surprising opinions.I've tried to defend Hasselbeck in the past, but no longer. From her condemning Arizona's SB1070 law to supporting Obama's Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor to just being a general airhead and now this, I've just lost all respect for her.
In a two-part interview with Fancast, the conservative co-host of "The View" came out in support of gay marriage and described President Obama as "an incredibly cool guy."
"I am not ultra-ultra-conservative on every issue. I actually support gay marriage," she told Fancast in part one. "I think the gay marriage thing would definitely surprise people. I mean, for some people, it will surprise them to the point that they won't want to hear it. 'No, that can't be, I really want to have this sort of idea of her in my head,' so I sort of rain on their parade there. I am a person that does believe that life begins at conception, but I also don't believe that the government should tell women what to do with their bodies. So I'm torn there in terms of supporting laws [for or against abortion]. I always say I would rather change a heart than a law. I think it has to start there. Always trying to mandate, mandate, mandate this or that is not the way that I believe this country should run."
Hasselbeck said it would be more appropriate to describe her as a "Federalist" than a "conservative."
