Neil Cavuto cuts off
Rep. E.B. Johnson

Politico, by Mackenzie Weinger

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/14/2012 5:08:29 AM

Fox News´ Neil Cavuto cut to commercial during a heated interview with Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson where the congresswoman told him to “shut up for just a second” and he later called their discussion “a total waste of time.” The Texas Democrat and Cavuto on Thursday argued over the fiscal cliff battle for several minutes before the interview came to an abrupt end. Cavuto repeatedly asked Johnson what things she would cut and the congresswoman countered that what should be discussed is "revenue generation." “No, you told me things you’d do to raise taxes. That’s what you told me.

Comments:
Texans are familiar with Eddie Bernice´s fuzzy doubletalk that she expects everyone to take seriously.

And Neil should NOT have apologized. She was the rude one.

Asking a lib Democrat what spending they would like to cut is like asking Dracula if he would like a side of garlic with his breakfast. These people only speak talking-points, and there is no upper-level brain activity going on. It was a waste of time, and Neil should have known better.

What this woman is doing in our House is anybody´s guess. She couldn´t plan a third-grade birthday party. Total waste of good bandwidth.

If she tries to come off as a victim of a white man´s anger at her ignorance, I wouldn´t be surprised. If you can´t carry the toolbox, walk off the job!

I saw it live and Neil was simply trying to get a simple answer. Dems cannot do that - it´s all about dialogue or forming committees and wasting time and our money - ENOUGH!

If memory serves me right, she was mixed up here in Texas with some money that was shifted improperly to a relative for college (or something along those lines). In my book she is on par with Sheila Jackson Lee (who thinks we landed on Mars). Sheesh...

I watched it and Neil Cavuto bent over backwards to be "respectful" to the unintelligible "congresswoman" from Texas. Ms. Johnson proved once again in front of an audience that there is no cure for stupid. And she is just ONE of the many, many illiterates who are now running this Country in Congress. Scary indeed.

#5, there is a scholarship program run through the congressional black caucus. The purpose of the program is to give college scholarships to (black) students from each black congressman´s congressional district. The money is sent directly to the student, thus keeping it out of the college financial aid package. (think of icing on the cake)
This E.B. Johnson was one of the congresscritters who gave the money to relatives (against the rules) who didn´t even live in her congressional district. (also against the rules)
I expect nothing of integrity or decency of any member of the black caucus. And I believe Congressman Scott of S.C. is not a member, although he is black, and a republican.
The voting rights act of 1965 has created the mess we see surrounding black members of the House of Representatives.
But again, since they are ´sticking it to the Man´ they will continue to get reelected.
There are few exceptions, the most notable being Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, mother of the former mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick. (Kwame is currently under federal indictment for political corruption, and Carolyn lost in a democratic primary not long ago. Such an event is rare, however.)

Note to Neil and the other Fox hosts(except for Shep, who I do not watch, ever):
Please stop putting these idiots on TV. We already know they are fools and you are wasting valuable air time.
You should have guests from whom we might learn something useful(e.g. Tom Sowell, Walter Williams, Art Laffer).
We don´t need anymore ´´food fight´´ TV.

An addition to #12´s response: while I don´t have sat. or cable TV so I can´t watch Fox, it is my understanding that Fox has the largest viewership amongst its cohorts. Maybe it´s time for Fox to stop worrying about the balanced part of its motto and go full bore truth and conservatism for a few months, at least. It might just enlighten enough viewers to really make a difference.

She only wanted to talk about "revenues". When do we call it what it really is? Its a TAX! This euphamism ranks right up there with abortion being called a "choice", 9/11 being called a "Man made disaster" and wars in the Middle East being called "Overseas contingency operations"! The Democrats not only can´t speak the truth, they can´t call it by it´s correct name.

I saw Greta talking to one of the michigan dem legislators about the vote for right to work. Greta kept asking the woman what her views where on allowing individuals the choice of whether or not to join and fund a union. Once again, no sign of intelligence on the left, just emotion. Modern women are not impressing me with their intellect. They just seem to be a bunch of over-emotional people sent out by their party, with talking points to spew.

Here´s a specific cut: 15 percent across the board until the deficit is gone. Why don´t the Repubs take this tack? What could be fairer, simpler, quicker (time is of the essence) or smarter? How does any sane person argue against a small percentage cut on all depts until balance is achieved?

The American public needs to take a good look and listen to the mindless sort of leadership? their votes have produced. Incapable of speaking the truth and apparently incapable of polititalk, this woman should have reviewed her White House Talking Points before agreeing to a TV interview.
..... It is doubtless that the administration will allow her to speak publicly again.

The only question that I wanted answered was "who are you related to that got you this job?" That is how unions work - they try to keep a closed shop all right - family members only need apply!

FOX gives to much credence to liberal liars that they invite on their shows. Give me a sincere liberal who really cares about the country first, if you can find one. But, don´t have these politically secure frauds that keep their people down through their lies. The question remains, about FOX´s fair and balanced approach. as to whether it is at all possible to be fair and balanced and still honest since it is difficult to find an honest liberal to debate.

I doubt the woman had anything cogent to say, but she was correct that Cavuto would not keep his yap shut long enough to let her make a fool of herself. His lack of common curtesy annoys to point of covering up any points he could make. I saw the interview live and wanted to scream. Not at the fool Congresswoman, but at Cavuto. Letting her own words seal her failures is much better than Cavuto telling us the obvious, plus it is the ultimate disrespect for his audience to not understand they are capable of recognizing a losing argument from the words of the presenters alone.

Edmond Aviv, 62, endured five hours of people yelling at him from passing cars while holding a sign that said: "I AM A BULLY!

How Being a Doctor Became

Nine of 10 doctors discourage others from joining the profession, and 300 physicians commit suicide every year. When did it get this bad? By the end of this year, it’s estimated that 300 physicians will commit suicide. While depression amongst physicians is not new—a few years back, it was named the second most suicidal occupation—the level of sheer unhappiness amongst physicians is on the rise. Simply put, being a doctor has become a miserable and humiliating undertaking. Indeed, many doctors feel that America has declared war on physicians—and both physicians and patients are the losers. Not surprisingly, many doctors want out. Medical students

Infamous boxing promoter Don King isn’t holding a grudge against the Rev. Al Sharpton in the wake of a blockbuster report detailing how Sharpton snitched on King to the FBI. King on Sunday called the revelations about Sharpton’s 1980s work as a paid undercover informant “old news” and praised Sharpton as a “stand-up person” for secretly recording mobsters with a customized Hartmann briefcase provided by the feds. “Al Sharpton had enough guts to fight, if it is true, to fight for others spending their ways and means to take away opportunity,” King told The Post. “How many people would put

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated.

Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
