This is a rush transcript from "Your World With Neil Cavuto," August 11, 2009. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.
NEIL CAVUTO, HOST: All right, well, a tale of two town halls.
On the left, the senator from Pennsylvania getting bombarded with tough questions. On the right, the president having a tough time getting any tough questions.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: OK. I have only got time for a couple more questions. Somebody here who has a concern about health care that has not been raised or is skeptical and suspicious and wants to make sure that — because I don't want people thinking I just have a bunch of plants in here.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
CAVUTO: But Ed Naile is a registered Democrat from New Hampshire.
You tried to get in, ultimately could not get in, right, Ed?
EDWARD NAILE, OWNER, NAILE TREE SERVICE: Well, I — I came for the exterior activities, the grassroots organizations outside. I was not that much interested in going inside.
CAVUTO: All right.
Now, I think we have some video of some of the exterior activities. There were some protesters out there. Very few, if any I noticed, inside the high school here with the president.
Why do you think that is? The White House has said there was no screaming going on here, this was a lottery system, that is it. Did you notice anything amiss or that — that runs afoul of that?
NAILE: Well, I watched the people come in earlier in the day, and I watched them leave, and I would say it is more of a Democrat event that was endorsed.
But, outside, we have a solid grassroots movement that is of voters and taxpayers that are concerned about nationalized health care. And that was very clear from their objections to this event all day long outside.
And we had the bussed-in the crowd on the — on the left, I would call it, the pro-nationalized health care crowd, which was — contained a lot of global warming and other side issues. But the — the predominant mood outside was opposed to nationalized health care.
CAVUTO: So, you're saying, despite what the White House is saying — and the White House insists this was not a screened crowd — that — that it — essentially, it was a screened crowd?
NAILE: I believe it was a screened crowd inside.
I talked to one person that came out that got a ticket and was from Portsmouth, was from here in New Hampshire. And she was not very happy with what — it was staged.
NAILE: That was her concern inside. There was no chance to ask questions.
But, outside, it was certainly not stage. It's a grassroots movement. That's what I was interested in. And it is nothing but growing.
CAVUTO: Ed, what did you make of the fact that they were, whether it was staged or not, whether they were planted or not, that they kind of supportive and respectful of the president? Were they just afraid to take on the — the most powerful man in the world, or what?
NAILE: I — I think the — the — the staging here was from the — the pro-health care crowd, and I think they — they have some concern about the growing grassroots movement, if that answers your question.
CAVUTO: Now, you are an independent, right? But you're...
NAILE: I am a registered Democrat.
CAVUTO: All right. But you are pretty independently-minded when it comes to this.
CAVUTO: You're against health care now, right?
NAILE: Yes, absolutely.
Ed, thank you very much. We appreciate you stopping by.
NAILE: Thank you.
