Ralph Peters, Stacey Dash Suspended By Fox News For Anti-Obama Remarks

Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and actress Stacey Dash have each been hit with a two-week suspension by Fox News for making vulgar comments while reviewing President Obama's terrorism speech from last night.

Both video clips are embedded below. Peters and Dash are outspoken, long-time foes of Obama.

In a statement, Fox executive Bill Shine explained that swearing on live television doesn't cut it.

"Earlier today, Fox contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air. Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks."

As Peters concluded his emotional criticism, Varney chided him for using foul language on the program. Later in the segment, Peters apologized for his angry outburst.

On Outnumbered, the FNC roundtable show featuring four recurring female commentators and a different male guest each day that airs at noon Eastern, Stacey Dash offered her opinion -- with the one word partially bleeped out -- in the context of Obama apparently rushing off after the nationally televised speech to attend a social event.

"It's ridiculous. His speech was an epic fail. It was like when you have to go to dinner with your parents, but you have a party to go to afterwards, that's what it felt like. He was just trying to get through it so he could go to this event afterwards. I did not feel any better. I didn't feel any passion from him. I felt like he could give a sh** -- excuse me -- like he could care less…today is the anniversary of Pearl Harbor; his speech should have had a lot more passion...where is Winston Churchill when we need him."

Do you agree with the decision by Fox News to suspend Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash for cursing on the air or did the network succumb to political correctness?

Twitter is offering its opinion.
