Posted on 10/13/2013 8:15:03 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert got into a tense back-and-forth Saturday with Fox News Arthel Neville over who is to blame for the partial government shut down and the frightening possibility of a debt-ceiling breach.
The Republican Congressman insisted that President Barack Obama and his Democrat allies in the U.S. Senate are responsible for the current mess in the nations capital.
The Fox News anchor wasnt satisfied with Rep. Gohmerts analysis.
Youre not saying that either, Congressman? Neville said. Lets have some honest talk here.
The Congressman repeated that its the Democrats, especially Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who have been dishonest negotiators throughout the entire shutdown ordeal.
Harry Reid saying that theres a bunch of firebrands and radicals in the House? he said. Thats not the case. We are together, but the hijacking has been the U.S. Senate by left-wing radicals who want to keep spending grandchildrens money.
Neville tried to move the conversation forward.
I appreciate your passion, she said. And of course were not suggesting everybody has great suggestions. We have to mix and match.
No, youre wrong there, youre wrong there! the Congressman interrupted. Tell me what the president has suggested. Tell me what Harry Reid has suggested. They have not made one good suggestion, not one, other than total capitulation.
Any way out of this, sir? she asked.
Yes! Rep. Gohmert said. Have them start compromising. Weve compromised over and over. We got to the point where we said, Okay, heres the deal. Heres our negotiators conferees. Thats what the law requires. Harry Reid would not even appoint conferees as the law requires.

I used to watch Faux News several hours a day, I now do not watch them for 30 minutes in a month if that. I have grown tired of the ever increasing stream of leftists and the addition of even more leftists running the shows.
They brought people in with conservative positions now are doing the switch to all the left all the time.
If Gohmert was Speaker, talking out in front of the Capitol every day and lambasting Reid and Obama with the truth, they would try to spin it, but the truth would start getting out there. Boehner can’t say what he doesn’t believe, and he can’t sell it even if he does believe it. He’s got to go. Louie is a winner.
Even Fox is saying the House Republicans have no end strategy.
With spending at a trillion dollars of borrowed money every year and mountain of national debt about to overwhelm us, I don't hear anyone asking Reid or Obama about their end strategy.
Fox has drank the Okool-aid
It happened after he was first elected.
What a POS website with all those advertising popups.
This mix and match stuff is what is wrong. In a compromise other sides gains and both sides lose. Obama wants to negotiate like the Allied negotiated with the Germans at Versailles.
I rather like Arthel on some issues but it does our cause more good when she and others with such biases are confronted like Gohmert did. This forces those watching to hear the counter-argument and think about our side rationally. A robot like Hannity who just repeats the same litany endlessly will never even be watched by potential converts.
When John Cornyn sleeps he has nightmares about Louie.
Already running radio ads in Austin, burning cash. Most dangerous place in DC is that space between a Vet and a TV camera. RINO John will run you over.
Well said. Especially the part about the bumper sticker Conservative Sean Hannity. Couldn’t agree more.
You had to hear it and see it in full context. I did....and trust me, Rep. Louie the G made mincemeat of this know-it-all, smug, superior, condescending lefty .
He rat-a-tatted her with FACTS right up to the time she said her producer was talking in her ear and she had to bring the interview to a close.
Hah...the producer saved her fanny from the superior intellect she was interviewing.
Way to go, Cong. Gohmert!
I’m sorry,, I get the Fox News channel.. however, watching it is more like watching a pop channel.. a NICK TV for republicans.. so I don’t get it too. sometimes , its so syrupy, welll, .. yaknow..
I could care less how pretty a face is as long as it is not lying to or shilling me for their own good.
Thank goodness for the remote.. and options... like CCTV and RT and Comedy Channel to get my news. :-]
Another brainless stupid bitch in boots for Fox.....zzzzzzzz
All this LSM whining about republicans not compromising is BS.
The republicans come with plan after plan after plan and offer it to the Senate.
Dingy Dirty Harry rejects out of hand any and all House proposals.
Harry keeps saying “NO” but offers nothing in return, nothing at all.
It is about time the LSM reports that fact.
(They never will).
Attacking his co-Senator (Cruz) like he did, name calling and other such juvenile actions, is beneath anything a conservative or true republican would do (anyone remember Reagan's 11th Commandment?).
“Voted against obamacare”. . .yeah right. . . bite me, Johnny boy, just bite me.
the only Fox News personality that was unwaveringly honest and worth watching was Judge Andrew Nepalitano but unfortunately, Fox fired him.
