    More comments on the Casey Anthony case:
    Do you think all the missteps from the defense will guarantee CA a mistrial?
    I kinda see Jose continuing to almost help this along, he clearly must realize he is way out of his league.

    Thank you & good night Anderson & Team 360. Good show, as always.

    Good night fellow writers, always a pleasure to converse with you. May you have a safe & peaceful day tomorrow.

    I don't know about the "house wifes" as i con't watch any of their programs. However, i trust Anderson's understanding of the "dutchesss". And, as usual, Anderson's commentary is hilarious – loved count chocula – LOL.

    Some observations & questions:
    How can Casey Anthony not take the stand, she's a witness to a crime (so the defense says)?
    Can't the state call her to the stand?
    Why didn't the defense go for insanity from the beginning?

    I want to know did Casey ever tell her mother that her father was sexually abusing her?

    Dr. Phil is right.

      I agree with Dr. Phil too.

      I think Casey looked very angry with her father.

    YIKES!!!!!!! That was so messy defense team!!!!!!!!! I don't think the defense will win as well!!! I don't understand what defense team are doing block the state Florida attorney to ask question Casey's dad George Anthony!!!!!

    Will she really take the stand?

    June 29, 2011 at 10:38 pm |
    • Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

      Casey Anthony should have stand for court her behalf without her parents.

      June 29, 2011 at 10:41 pm |
    • Starr, formerly know as vincent

      Hi Nancy, i haven't a clue what to expect. It seems to me that in order for the defense to prove it's "abuse" allegations, she would have to be on the stand.
      On the other hand, it seems as if the defense feels that it has created "reasonable" doubt.
      There will be an appeal without a doubt if the jury finds her guilty.

    What a mess that Casey Anthony trial.....very sad. I can't comprehend any of it.

      Pretty appalling public spectacle.

      June 29, 2011 at 10:34 pm |
    • Lindy

      IIt's pretty easy to see that Casey is primarily just pissed off that her parents aren't standing up for HER and lying for her when they probably always took her side when she was growing up. She can't imagine that her dad especially would let her take the fall for killing her child since of course Caylee is already dead and SHE isn't. In her state of mind, it's like "what good can it possibly do NOT to take my side." She doesn't understand in her psychopathic mind that what she has done in taking their grandchild from them is unforgiveable–even for her–their daughter.

      June 29, 2011 at 10:43 pm |
    • Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

      I agree with you, Jennifer....... Me either.

      June 29, 2011 at 10:44 pm |
    • Pat in Austin

      It is interesting that Casey would frequently leave her daughter with her father while she went off to pretend she was at work, yet she alleges he molested her from a young age. Hmmm.

      June 29, 2011 at 10:45 pm |
    • Jackie

      How would Casey be expected to look at George when he is "breaking" down on the stand if the defense's therory is true? How can the media say what George would or wouldn't do? Do they really know him? I am disappointed that Baez did not show more of George's lies about his gas cans and duct tape that is evident in his deposition for the state in July 2009.

    Is it possible that many huge businesses and corporations are withholding reinvestment in our economy so more jobs could not be created BECAUSE they don't want this President to be re-elected? They are making billions of dollars, pay almost nothing, but are truly the most selfish people I am aware of. There are exceptions but not many.

    June 29, 2011 at 10:29 pm |
    • Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

      Good point question..... Yes, It had already problem our country........ They don't want our president Obama to be re-elected for his job...... That will be no one will be hire or taxes or gas or war as well.

    Rep. Kucinich had No business going to Syria!

    Now look what has happened. Instead of lending any help to the People of Syria who are fighting for their human rights, the Representative has been completely misrepresented by the Syrian gov., and basicallty used as a "dupe".

    I sincerely doubt the Rep. Kusinich met with Any real Syrian activists.

    Who authorized this trip. Whose idea was it? Why was he allowed to travel to Syria in the 1st place?

    June 29, 2011 at 10:21 pm |
    • Nancy in Oregon

      I don't understand that at all, either. I think a great many of these politicians must interject themselves into crises for their own gain...or for their own agenda.

      June 29, 2011 at 10:23 pm |
    • Merav

      Kuchinick is one of those endless losers. He is just seeking exposure.
      If he thinks the people of Syrai will OPENLY tell him how they feel about Assad, he has no clue what dictatorship means
      The good news, if he had ran for president, he would lose even if running against himself 🙂

    I also believe the defense has a good case. The defense attorney just doesn't know how to argument his case.

    I believe Casey is protecting her father. I also believe she was sexually abuse by him, and I believe he had an affair with the search helper.

      I don't know who to believe in that family. It seems to be a very mixed up family.

      • Starr, formerly know as vincent

        Hi Nancy, i agree with you. The family, as they have been represented in the media & courtroom are a confusing and dysfunctional lot. I don't know who to believe either.

        June 29, 2011 at 10:26 pm |
        • Martha AR

          It is a very sick family but it is hard to tell where the sickness has come from. Cindy is a huge enabler and all seem to be codependent. Sexual abuse is highly questionable with what we know now. Casey is not protecting anyone in the family but herself...she is trying to punish all of them with her actions. Whether first degree murder or aggravated child abuse, the result needs to be the same.

          June 29, 2011 at 10:35 pm |
    • Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

  38. Starr, formerly know as vincent

    I saw the President's press conference. He seemed to make sense to me.

    We, the USA, need to cut rediculous spending, & raise taxes.

    Taxes have been really low for almost a decade now. It has not improved or created jobs. So low taxes do Not work.
    And, real cutting of not only the rediculous spending, but programs that are going to pinch the public.

    Adult discussion & Bi-partisan cooperattion is imperative!

    June 29, 2011 at 10:09 pm |
    • Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

      I agree with you, Good point. We don't have to cut our taxes spreading in the country...... I don't like what Republicans have change our plan for help people to hire jobs or people willing retire their jobs.

    Alienate the Rushpublicans? They already hate him, call him every name in the book and have pledged to obstruct him at any cost. They will never come around and negotiate in good faith for the American people, the Rushpublicans are only interested in their own wealth and catering to their corporate masters.

    I did not buy the grandfather performance because he was sending his daughter up the river. I believe he is not tell the truth. He is an ex- police office. He knows how to handle lawyers and jurors. He should have gotten a "Oscar" award for that performance. If I had a "Leroy" award, I would not give it to him.

      I cannot buy almost anything anyone in that family says. I don't think there is just one tangled up person in that group. They all seem so very convoluted.
