After reports that Soledad O'Brien recently was booted from her morning show, Starting Point, the CNN anchor is saying shes really happy with the way things turned out, even calling it a win-win.

I’m whistling as I take my evening stroll through the nearby cemetery.
Anyway, one morning we woke up and saw that his sunken driveway no longer existed -- the retaining wall had given way and his entire front yard had slid East and his yard was now in his driveway. No way any car was getting out of his two-car garage anytime soon. Very ugly scene.
He said he was thrilled. He had wanted to redesign his driveway, you see, and this happy event now gave him the perfect opportunity to put his plans in motion. It was a great day for him.
I'm thinking Soledad is the same kind of moron.
She may get a job with the regime now
She was used like a whore by the Democrats for over a year running up to the election being the most blatant overt cheerleader for them - all sense of impartiality and fairness absent.
Now the election is over and they are putting on their trousers and dropping a twenty on the bed....”Thanks doll.”
Evidently “Starting Point” turned out to be a “Dead End”.
Hey, she really, really wanted a show on MSNBC at 03:00 AM.
Shhhh.....don’t tell the Hispanics and Blacks that they are getting screwed by Democrats who pay for their votes with food stamps. They still think its love.
She’s a certified fool.
Clearly, a grand day for ALL of America, not just Soledad.
Now maybe she can get a little exposure to the real world.
Outlets like RT, Current and Al Jazzera are always looking for anti-American foils.. She would fit in great there.
Fat chance. She will be working with Bryant Gumbel.
Good grief, mggief! Her and Bernie Goldberg on the same set? Well, he’s tolerated it this long. What’s another lefty on the panel?
You give her far too much credit.
I will second that. The only thing that would be better is if nobody picks her up.
They say that Thomas Edison had the same kind of optimistic reaction when his factory burned down.
She was born before the Soledad prison riots. Her full name is María de la Soledad Teresa O’Brien, her first name is Spanish for “The Blessed Virgin of Solitude”. While she is neither blessed nor a virgin, I wish her much solitude.
How does a slobbering leftist hack get fired from CNN?
With tweezers, like removing a wood tick.
Possibly due to a vast surplus of them.
Soledad O’Brien should be around in public to show how bad democrats can reach new levels.
No mo’ wake up with angry chihuuahuuuua?
The new head Jeff zucker is a Obama stooge too .
In 2000 ,he was leaving NBC to work for Al Gore at the WH !
Jeff and his wife had there little kids doing those creep Nazi kid obana chanting propaganda films in 2008 .
I think Soledad had a drug and drinking problem that got her canned since her far left SF Bay Area politics fit Zucker left wing nutism!
Not a big fan of Soledad, but the two happiest days of my wife’s broadcast career were the day she got picked up for a morning drive show. And the day she left tHe morning drive show. The hours are murder. You NEVER get enough sleep.
Who is Soledad OBrien??
That’s going to be tough, you can’t get much more solitude than you do at CNN.
Her sister Sing Sing, her brother Attica, and her cousin SuperMax...do not share the same win-win feeling....
What a coincidence -- I feel exactly the same way!
Now, there's even less of a chance that I'll run across her show as I conscientiously try to avoid having CNN tuned-in on my TV as I channel-surf...
The Justice Department uses MSNBC to hide people in the witness protection program.
Yep, now she can get that job at Chik-Fil-A she always wanted
Win or lose is her business but I applaud her for taking a decision to be positive.
The reason CNN fired her is the only question I have. Was she not liberal enough or was she too liberal. I saw her a few times and she appeared to me to be someone who could face reality when it was correctly presented.
In the short article, she comments on several negatives, and calls them a win-win?
“How does a slobbering leftist hack get fired from CNN?”
Pretty easy actually. Management puts on a show with an untalened hack who is in the toilet for Obama and when the show fulfills the prophecy from everyday Republicans that it is gong to fail miserably and it does, they throw the hack under the bus. Wash, rinse and repeat.
What CNN needs is a two hour political show from 7pm to 9pm featuring Monica Crowley, Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham. Call it Solid Gold. Every week, for one night add a fourth chair for the conservative point of view and a fifth chair for the liberal counterpoint.
First topic would be getting rid of Affirmatve Action. Herman Cain against Al Sharpton.
Apparently being caught lying too many times and low ratings can get you fired even at CNN.
Pray for America to Wake Up
You should be more like that neighbor. He had the right attitude and that is why he was a winner at life. Why sit on the sidelines and complain about life and be jealous of people who are more productive than you? Life hands everyone problems, but this guy figured out how to turn a problem into a solution.
Ann Coulter wrote about how the left does this. It's happening now to the portly Sandra Fluke, and remember that babe Sheehan who claimed Bush killed her son Casey - can't remember her name, although I do recall Casey re-up'ed, probably to get away from her. And what about Susan McDougal?
Once these useful idiots serve their purpose, the Left says, "Thanks, now please go the f**k away".
I want her to take over for Carney. I could watch HOURS watching her deal with the press!
Obama's stupid enough to do it.
Your driveway looks the same today as it did yesterday? Too bad for you -- mine collapsed! Sucks to be you!
You're visiting your mother next weekend? Too bad for you -- mine died last year! Sucks to be you!
You have a job? Too bad for you -- I got fired, now I have lots of free time! Sucks to be you!
This is not a healthy approach to reality. I appreciate the value of optimism and a positive attitude, but if your only view of life is "I'm better than you" then that is just being obnoxious.
I totally see your point, but there is somethign to be said about that kind of attitude in life
(why be miserable?)
