Barr is no less of a liberal and almost as controversial as O'Donnell. If she were to replace O'Donnell, Barr would continue to tilt the show to the extreme left and fail to bring back the many viewers of "The View" who were offended at the numerous outrageous statements made by O'Donnell.
In a March appearance on HBO's "Real Time," Barr alleged that conservatives "liked Reagan because he's a confederate. [...] They worship him because he dismantled working rights for people."
Barr will bring a left-wing agenda to "The View." She admitted that she had one earlier this year:
Rosie O'Donnell brought a unique brand of deranged behavior to "The View" with her spouting of 9/11 conspiracy theories, anti-Asian bigotry and much more. Barr, however, would bring her own brand of stupidity. Back in 2005, she claimed she was "psychic" and also stated that she could "totally win out on" President Bush in a "mind contest."
These people, they've got to tell us what we want to hear or we're not going to vote for them and I like kind of go sometimes, we need this may be the time in our history that we start a third party. A green party that's about solar energy and we vote for what we really believe not what we hate least but what we really believe. That's what our country is about. And we really should, like, exercise the right to vote for what we really believe in.
