Actually, Carol I've said worse.

Cavuto: You're talking about doubling the gas tax and acting like it's no big deal.
Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore.: I didn't say it was not a big deal.
Cavuto: Transportation money goes to transportation.
Blumenauer: It's always a pleasure Neil. Have fun
Cavuto: I wish I could say the same.

Cavuto: Congressman you're going to leave them holding the bag if you push them into the water. I'm not excusing BP.
Congressman: BP cannot pay a dividend if it doesn't have the money. If it has the obligation whatsoever...
Cavuto: No offense. I'm talking to a rock here.

Cavuto: You know what congressman? You know when I'm rude? I'll tell you when I'm rude to guests when they don't answer questions all taxpayers have a right to know. That is when I'm rude.
Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla.: Well you're being very rude.

My point is this, it's not about gender. It's not about their sex. It's about the substance of their argument.
Some find me rude, others have since vowed never to watch me again conservatives who say I shouldn't go over the line with conservatives, so I'm a turncoat.
Liberals who say every time I bash the president, I'm a racist.
I'm not red. I'm not blue.
I'm green. I'm all about green. Who's spending it, who's wasting it, and who by actions such as these -- however well intended, and I think the congresswoman's intentions are good, are deflecting attention from the issues that matter.
I'm about moving the ball forward, not sitting on it just to make a point.
I'm dollars and cents. And either side posturing these days makes little sense.
Some of you say you'll never watch me again for the way I treated a congresswoman who I otherwise very much respect.
Well, then I respectfully bid you adieu.
Because if you prefer only hearing the interviews that suit you, then let me now say goodbye to you. Because the time is going to come again, when I will probably offend you.
So let me be brief, this isn't about filing briefs. This is about getting to work.
Because we're out of money. We're out of ideas. We're out of time.
