Fox News’ Andrea Tantaros Goes On Bizarre Rant About Torture: ‘We Are Awesome!’ (Video)

tantaros-fox-1I’ve gone on the record as saying that I don’t get as worked up about all this torture stuff as the average liberal/progressive. We’ve always been doing this stuff, we’re just now hearing more about it due to the evolution of the ways we get information. Though let me make myself clear, I’m not defending the behavior that was released in these reports. All I’m saying is that if people didn’t realize this has always been going on, then they’re either lying to themselves or naive. I’ve always said if we had the Internet, Twitter and Facebook during WWII, we would probably look upon our behavior during that war much differently than we do now.


That being said, the reason I dreaded the release of this report isn’t because of what the world would find out about what we did. Because the truth is, many of these countries (allies and enemies alike) are doing it too. I liken it to the person who condemns the drunk driver, when they themselves have driven drunk – they just didn’t get caught. But the reason I dreaded the release of the report is because of the ridiculous media coverage I knew it was going to get. The left blaming Bush, the right blaming Obama and Democrats for trying to make us look back. The truth is most people aren’t really concerned with what was released in this report, they just cared about trying to form the right argument to heap blame at whatever side they opposed. This report, like far too many other things in this country, would ultimately devolve into a political pissing match between the left and the right which would ultimately accomplish nothing.

But perhaps some of the most absurd comments I saw happened before the report was even released. On Fox News’ Outnumbered, Andrea Tantaros went on one of her usual idiotic rants where she ignores facts for the sake of trying to bash the Obama administration.

“The United States of America is awesome,” Tantaros said. “We are awesome! But we’ve had this discussion. We’ve closed the book on it. The reason they want the discussion is not to show how awesome we are. It’s to show us how we’re not awesome. They apologized for something. They don’t like this country. They want us to look bad and all this does is have our enemies laughing at us.”

First, let me point out how “professional” it is for a person within a major media entity to use a word often used by surfers and random 15-year-olds while speaking about her feelings on the prowess of the United States. I mean, we’re like totally and completely awesome – for sure. Maybe she should audition for the next Lego movie.


And then there’s the complete babble about her ridiculous rhetoric about the Obama administration “not liking” this country. The feeble-mindedness of this woman is astounding. As if a president can’t be critical of the actions taken by their own country. What’s more “awesome”:

  • A country owning up to its own mistakes publicly, like a true leader would – or –
  • Hiding and denying something the entire world already knew happened, just like our enemies frequently do.

With her comments, Tantaros proved once again how utterly clueless she is. Not only by her immature delivery, but by the pathetic way she put all of this on some trumped-up “hatred” she claims the Obama administration has for this country.

Then again, irrational anti-Obama fear-mongering is what Fox News is all about, and Tantaros herself has proven time and time again that it’s what she does best.

    The adult thing to do is admit mistakes and problems. Do we want to live in a country that is 12 year old “awesome”, denying shortcomings and failings, blaming others, and trying to project a fascade of being perfect? Or do want to live in a country that has the maturity to admit its errors, to strive to be better, and to learn and teach from the mistakes of the past? Strength is admitting wrongs, working to correct those wrongs. It isn’t easy. It takes work and maturity. Considering 12 year olds are better suited to work together for a common goal than our politicians, we’re screwed.

    • Monica

      Then why has Obama NEVER admitted that he has ever done anything wrong….like lying about “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. PERIOD”?

      • Cemetery Girl

        I was speaking about the country in general, not anyone specific. I made no statement about this President or that one. And I have no desire to fall into which untruths are the worst.

        Ha ha, I can tell when a liberated gets frustrated and starting calling names. Same ole. Same ole. Can’t prove your points so you get nasty!! Beside, when you say PERIOD, it means no more, no less. It means what he said, not what he added to it. He knew he was lying and you know it too.

        7500 lives lost at last count I heard it was about 2900 everybody loved Clinton but during his tenture healthcare took some big hits along with other things .he said he had a surplus when he left office that he because he raised the ceiling debt twice before left office and had everyone believing he was America’s savior you people need to get a brain and do some research its not comparing its just facts assclowns

      • KD

        A total of 4,491 U.S. service members were killed in Iraq between 2003 and 2014. Far to many, especially when you consider the gross misinformation and propaganda used to fuel support for the invasion. As of December 2012, the IBC has recorded 110,937-121,227 civilian deaths. No wonder we have more terrorism in the world.

        Also, Regan raised the debt ceiling 18 times and doubled the national debt during his time in office, but he had to, the economy was tanking. It’s not really a quality way to compare economic strategy.

      • KD

        You do realize that in one sentence you condem someone for name calling while simultaneously calling them a name.

      • KD

        you could keep your Doc, YOU just had to pick a plan that worked with your Doc, or YOU could chose to go out of network. PERIOD! No one ever took away your right to see the Doctor of your choice, people just didnt pay attention to the plans they were buying. That’s not the laws fault, that’s the individual.

      • barry parker

        hey fool then why did obummer apologize on tv for that little foopa or you where just hungover and couldn=t comprehend life

    • Jim Bean

      When the Left admits they got it wrong with Zimmerman, Brown, austerity/sequestration, the spotted owl, the effect of crude supply on gasoline prices, the OWS movement, etc, then – and only then – will they accrue the creds necessary to sell such an air of righteousness as you infer.

      • Cemetery Girl

        This isn’t a matter of sides. Did I at any point specify a political party? No. I’m talking making our country better. “This party did this.” “Well, that party did that.” Life is not a competition in which you can tally up the most infractions others make and then win. They only way to work towards making our country better and to actually fix our real problems is to quit counting up our grievances (real and imagined) with “the other side” and work together.

      • Jim Bean

        You know what? I couldn’t agree more. And I think if you were to condense all my input on these comment boards over the years you would conclude that the common theme is that I endeavor to articulate and make appreciated and understood, opposing points of view. The sides can’t ‘work together’ in the absence of that appreciation.

      • Bill Pazz

        Bull

      • Bill Pazz

        Its clear that you need help sir…

  • GenerallyConfused

    I highly doubt she meant awesome in the traditional sense of the word, either.

  • Tommi MoonYak Henriksen

    Somebody should tell her how awesome this is: “My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.”

  • Melanie Collins Pennock

    Well, she certainly belongs on Fox News!!

  • Eg Kbbs

    The only way I can even get her words to be coherrent is to treat this as a sports analogy (and there is plenty of precedent of treating the USA against the world as Team USA! ) and we can kick their a** so we are righteous.

    Her words then come similar to: We won the trophy. Sure we cheated. Sure we accused others of cheating. Sure we lied. But we won. So there ! USA ! USA! USA!

    Or perhaps I should compare this to the South Park episode where Cartman taught a group of kids the “White Man’s Method” of winning (in short, you cheat). And Cartman even used the example of the Patriots Coach being caught stealing the opposing team’s signals. And Cartman also demonstrated that cheating was right by playing basketball against a kid and winning by cheating. Every time the kid complained that it was cheating, Cartman just said look at the scoreboard which says that Cartman was winning.

  • sherry06053

    I am totally disinterested in what Fox says about anything, and I agree that the report is not “significant” for any purpose other than to expose that we are capable of barbaric techniques and are no better than the extremists. I understand the ACLU’s point of pardoning those responsible, since doing so would acknowledge our mistakes, however, what I would REALLY like to see is the Bush administration held accountable for our invasion of Iraq in the first place. If that had not happened, which was based on LIES, our recent history would have been written so differently and the numbers of those who died or wounded would be greatly reduced. To me, there is no justification for THAT crime.

    • Monica

      Admit it. Your’ve never watched FOX in your whole life. Releasing that report endangers everyone who works in intelligence. Yet almost every paragraph in everything that is requested by any committee investigating the lawless behavior of this administration is totally redacted, but the welfare of Americans is thrown under the bus.

        what exactly are regressives ( conservatives) “conserving”?

  • Monica

    I think we should start beheading our enemies like ISIS, because nobody seems to care what they do and beheading is so much nicer than water boarding.

    • Bill Pazz

      Lol…Are you drinking again?

    • regressive white trash reli

      naaah,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, we can behead stupid americans who “think” that a dead jewish homosexual carpenter (jeeeeesus) is “god”

      • Monica

        Christians are being beheaded around the world. So what’s new? I’d rather be them than you because I’m alive in Christ and you are already dead in your sin.

      • regressive white trash reli

        “alive in Christ”
        ………………….. precious!!! ( note: hes been dead and gone for eons; and hes NOT god,,hes NOT coming back,,,,,

        Isn’t it ironic that self proclaimed Christians tend to be the most judgmental yet sensitive pusses of them all?

    Also, it’s such much nicer to kill by drones by the Obama than to dunk someone.

    • gemma liar

      killing our enemies with OUT having OUR soldiers KILLED ( see: liar based war in IRAQ/bush/cheney/Rumsfeld) is superior; donnnncha think?
      after all,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, think of how much MONEY the repubs and their defense contractor/Halliburton cronies made; eh? whats several THOUSAND dad and MAIMED 4 LIFE American soldiers???

        Hi my name is Francess and I am a 50 something year old half wetback who is unemployed and I claim to have a ‘very healthy’ relationship with that fat slob Amanda Marcotte.

      • Hi, Dennis, have you heard from your child-beating friend Frank DiSalle, the dry drunk?

        Just wondering.

      • PortersvilleBarn

        Have you taken the graffiti off your garage, planted any seed on your lawn? Do you still keep your cans out for months at a time you lazy waste of human sperm?

      • Nothing there to take off. I’m sorry you are so confused. Why don’t you take up drinking, like your pal Frank DiSalle did?

      • PortersvilleBarn

        Your garage has graffiti on it. You live in a shack. Surrounded by scum of earth. You are a loser.

      • Ask Dennis about that call girl he married.

      • PortersvilleBarn

        Hey Frances- how’s the barn, the one you claim to. E employed by? You still hanging out in the porterville pedophile club?

      • I’m sorry your wife married a moron.

      • PortersvilleBarn

        Hey Frances Raymond Cuffman. You fookin diuche bag

      • Hi, Dennis. How are your neuroses these days?

      • PortersvilleBarn

        Hey Franky Poo, see your sitting on the Internet at 5:30 PM stalking me again. Stalker BOI. I can’t wait to kick your arse.

    Sure, this has ben going on for a long time. Long before the 21st Century.

    The difference is that it became the official policy of our nation. We aren’t just talking about past incidents where individuals or groups of Americans went overboard and killed innocents and tortured prisoners, cases which when brought to light were prosecuted.

    Now, torture is what we do. We’ve lost our soul.

  • Jim Bean

    I was on your side most of the time with this one Allen. I would, however, question the choice you offered with;

    “What’s more “awesome”: A country owning up to its own mistakes publicly, like a true leader would – or –

    Hiding and denying something the entire world already knew happened, just like our enemies frequently do.”

    The last sentence contradicts itself because something the world already knows about cannot be hidden.

    Consequently, motives for releasing the intricate details had to be centered on something other than making sure the world was not prevented from knowing what we did. The details were released by the Dems with malice aforethought.

      liar..yes..youre a true right wing liar..

  • Jack Mott

    Torture helps take out your frustrations. Torture frightens people , making them not want to be taken alive and probably marginalize crimes. If I knew I’d be tortured, I’d think twice. Not everyone can sustain torture to keep their secrets.Torture avenges death of loved ones. The Comanche were the best at it.

    There is nothing “forward” about being Progressive. Just another name for communism.

  • Greg Takach

    The only bizarre idiotic rant I see is this article. Liberal propaganda yet again from the clueless Allen Clifton. Name calling and attacks on word usage…you live up to your reputation progressive liberal. Andrea’s point is valid. Information gathering through interrogation is necessary in time of war and has been used throughout history. You’re naïve to think that it hasn’t saved countless lives or that this issue and this report aren’t politics at their worst. How exactly do you think we found OBL? Many Americans do think the obamas hate America based on their not so veiled statements. I believe many of you don’t like this country as well, hence the progressive ideals that seek to fundamentally change what is already an AWESOME country.
