Cavuto: What the 'Fox' are you doing?

Time for politicians to stop blaming us

 

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REP. EARL BLUMENAUER, D-ORE.: Well, that`s Fox News that doesn`t know where it went.

(CROSSTALK)

NEIL CAVUTO, HOST: No, no.

Congressman, I mentioned...

(CROSSTALK)

BLUMENAUER: That's Fox News that doesn`t know where it went.

CAVUTO: No, no, no, no. Don't be insulting.

JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: Let me correct the record especially for some news outlets that persist in misrepresenting the facts.

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: If you've talked to somebody that said, I don't know, I've been watching Fox News and they said this is horrible...

JAY CARNEY: Imagine the story on Fox. If that were to happen.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: If you are on the right then you're only reading the Wall Street Journal editorial page and watching Fox News...

It's Fox.

It's always Fox.

Something's wrong with the healthcare law?

It's Fox fear-mongering the healthcare law.

Have a problem with doubling the gasoline tax?

It's stupid, greedy Fox not seeing the infrastructure wisdom of that tax.

Against fixing our bridges that need repair?

It's Fox on a biased bridge to nowhere.

It's got to stop. It's got to stop.

I mean, what the Fox are you doing?

Trotting out Fox every time you start sweating?

That's like me saying the camera adds 50 pounds until folks see me in person, and say apparently it does not.

I really am fat.

Just like these guys always bashing Fox really are scapegoating.

So they don't like us.

I know it's pretty clear that congressman who wants to hike the gas tax doesn't like me.

That's fine. Here's what isn't.

Blaming me. Blaming us for the load of bs you're throwing back at all of us.

Left. Right. Blue. Red. It's all green. All our green. All our money. Government spending it. Fox simply demanding what they're doing with it.

Let me be clear to all you Fox-hating big government-loving politicians:

Fox isn't tearing down your bridges.

Graft is.

Greed is.

No accountability for the spending is.

You sleeping at the switch is.

Fox didn't make millions of Americans lose their healthcare coverage.

Mister President, your healthcare law did.

We didn't tell those companies to dump their workers.

They did.

Just like Fox didn't lose hundreds of billions of dollars to repair our infrastructure.

The government did. Governments at all levels did.

Fox didn't steal it.

They did.

Fox didn't squander it.

They did.

And Fox didn't then go back and demand sinking still more dough into this apparently bottomless pit.

Government did.

Congressman Blumenauer, You did.

You just did.

But here's where you are right, congressman.

You didn't call it throwing good money after bad.

Fox did. I did.

You didn't say we have to account for whatever the hell happened to those billions we've squeezed out of taxpayers to pay for all this stuff before we fork over one more cent.

Fox did. I did.

You didn't say that mattered.

Fox did. I did.

You didn't say this merry-go-round must stop.

Fox did. I did.

It's very clear Fox isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I think we've got this money-in, money-out thing down to a tee.

Some in Washington might have a problem with Fox.

But that doesn't mean they can ignore some basic questions pretty much only being asked by Fox.

What are you doing with our money?

Why do you want still more money?

Why do you insist the spending cupboard is bare when you've barely touched spending at all?

Fox didn't create 17 trillion bucks in debt.

Washington did.

You did.

Fox didn't manufacture a healthcare website that didn't work.

You did.

Fox didn't say if you liked your doctor, you could keep your doctor.

If you like your hospital you can keep your hospital, or if you like your plan you can keep your plan.

You did. You did. You did.

Before you once again pick on Fox for dare speaking the truth.

How about first stopping by a mirror and having a look.

We may be a great foil.

But your constant bureaucratic blunders prove.

You're the fool.
