‘Shut Up!’ Neil Cavuto and Dem Rep. Battle it Out in Must See Interview
The Blaze ^ | 12/13/12 | Becket Adams

Posted on 12/13/2012 9:10:01 PM PST by Mozilla

While discussing the looming “fiscal cliff” on Thursday, Fox News’ Neil Cavuto and Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas) had a rather unpleasant exchange of words:

Cavuto repeatedly pressed Rep. Johnson for specifics on what Democrats would be willing to cut as part of a budget agreement. For her part, the Texas congresswoman insisted on focusing on “revenue generation.”

“No, you told me things you’d do to raise taxes. That’s what you told me. Credits, allowances, that sort of stuff. That’s what you told me,” Cavuto said.

“You’ve got to talk about revenue generation,” the congresswoman replied.

“I know that, but it’s 100 percent of what you’re talking about, congresswoman,” said Cavuto.

“It is not 100 percent of what I’m talking about. If you’d shut up for just a second, I would try,” she responded.

Cavuto shot back: “You got to tell me one thing you’d cut. I beg you congresswoman, one thing you would say, I would cut this. What would it be?”

Rep. Johnson thought for a moment and responded: “You.”

A pause.

“You don’t know, do you?” asked Cavuto.

I got rid of cable a couple of years ago. Cavuto is one of the very few things I miss.

That proves it! Cavuto is a racist! Surely I don’t have to put “sarc” on here.

“rather unpleasant exchange of words:”

it wasn’t an unpleasant “exchange.” The ‘unpleasant’ was entirely one-sided.

Eddie Bernice Johnson, another CBC lunatic that we subsidize.

Most members of the CBC contribute to the stereotype of black people being stupid. Same for Al Sharpton.

This one is as smart as the one who wondered about the flag the astronauts planted on Mars.

Saw that exchange today and thought Neil did what should be done when these Dems wont answer a simple question. Cut them off and go to a break. Just like Neil did!

Johnson got in over her Eddie head. Well, when she gets up in the morning she is in over her head so I guess it doesn’t matter.

As ‘sensitive’ as we have become, this could almost be construed a threat.
Bet your bippy if the situation was reversed someone would point out that Neil threatened her (She is to dumb to figure it out herself).

We got this idiot, the aforementioned clown that wants to see the flag the Astronauts planted on Mars, the complete fool that opined Guam would tip over because of to many Marines on it, the other idiot that was rambling about the slaves being thrown overboard and the sharks, 200 yrs later, still patrolled looking for humans - Of course it took a R Limbaugh to point out that according to his figures the numbers came out like the voting in certain precincts with a +100% turnout ALL for the ‘one’, 57 states, throw in joebamabiden and it is no wonder they think we are all racists.

She was having a hard time getting her lies out - she ducked and dodged and shucked and jived and misdirected and tried babble-talk. Pure nonsense. I saw it this afternoon.

Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas) embodies the Napoleonic adage, “In politics stupidity is not a handicap.”

Hard to imagine that anybody vote for Eddie. But these are the people the loony left is electing. I can’t even believe she made it through High School.

“Hard to imagine that anybody vote for Eddie.”

You mean anybody with an IQ above room temperature.

Watched it live and it was classic. Neil destroyed her and showed her for what she is. A clown.

No, the take away comment here is that she wanted to “cut” Cavuto.
That is a urban threat; “I’ll cut you with a knife!”

Unbelievable that this woman continues to be reelected ... and by huge margins. Idiot voters.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
I understand that.
My point being this is just another ‘elected representative of the people’ that is dumber than a box of rocks, who is controlling (or attempting to) everything in our day to day lives.

If WE sit back and expect the Politicians to ‘term limit’ themselves, it ain’t gonna happen etc....

We have a Black President, Attorney General, Mayors of most Large Cities, YET they all stand up and say “America is a land that insults and wants to keep the Blacks down”.

Then, collectively, they have the nerve to say “It is Whitey’s fault - or more direct “BLAME BUSH””

The LIbS go out of their way telling all how ‘FUBAR’ we are, accuse ‘US’ of being racist/anti woman or whatever - say we are nothing but a bunch of ‘old’ White men, yet THEY spend millions to Unelect a Black Man, Makes sure a BLACK LADY doesn’t get seated, AND replace them both with AN OLD WHITE MAN.

And the band played on, while Nero continued fiddling (around).

I record the program and scrolled through the interview because the woman is a zeroid. She is incapable of saying anything not on the script.

She did wear a pretty fancy scarf though. Neil will be charged with battery on an old black woman.

The thing is, it happens most everytime she comes on and is completely predictable. She must really like to be on TV not realizing how foolish she looks

Neil Cavuto is a sharp guy.
He should quit trying to get libs to understand logic.
It is like trying to teach a chicken a card trick.
