    Cue liberal hate in 3…2…1…

    • JamesS

      Come on, for real! Liberal hate? Bret has a 6 year old son. I am a liberal and I would not be hateful. I have two kids myself. Everything is not about politics. I wish Paul, and his family, the very best of luck

      • BeyondPolls

        Thank you for being nice.

      • Rulz

        Can you really blame him for expecting it from your side? Just look at what is going on in MI.

        thumbs up, BTW

        You clearly did not see the responses to Marco Rubio’s daughter being in a car accident or Melissa Joan Hart/Stacey Dash daring to vote Romney. The ugliness is unbelievable, and from the supposed party of empathy and tolerance.

        God Bless the Baier family. That child’s strength is incredible.

        Come on guys, this is not Palin. Palin’s kids don’t count as kids.

        You would not, but many of liberals spout venom like I’ve never seen. Look at what others have said re: Rubio’s daughter and Hart/Dash. For many liberals “tolerance” only extends to “their own”

    Having had a CABG-2 myself and a son who’s had multiple surgeries, I know what the Baier family is going through.

    Prayers for you all, Bret.

    Paul and his family are in our thoughts and prayers. Hope he’s doing OK; the first day after surgery is always rough. Sounds like he is in good hands though.
