Blah-blah-blah. Despite my super hero efforts, more of the same "anything but super" behavior out of Washington...both sides continuing the same finger-pointing on capitol hill...over a cliff that keeps coming closer.
God knows I did my best to stop this nonsense...yesterday I offered a 7-point plan to bring us back from the brink...in true super hero fashion.
...let's just say more than a few of you fixated on the image of me in a super hero costume.
Bill in Gainesville, Fla.
"Neil, I've come to love the look of your super hero costume. When did Spanx start making them?"
Tim in Knoxville, Tenn.
"Cavuto, you said that animation was built to scale...to what, Mount Rushmore?"
You know the one thing that bugs me about saving a planet, Tim...it's that when I do, guys like you get saved as well.

"Cool ideas. Cool outfit. Cool sense of humor. I'm in, my pudgy man of not-so-steel!!"
Arnold in Atlanta, Ga.
"Neil, your opening rant on today's show was hilarious! I was too busy laughing to catch all the wisdom you espoused. Too bad you're not in government. Besides the common sense, our country could use a good dose of humor."
Well, let's just say I provide a lot to laugh at, Arnold. Thank you very much.
D.J. in Florida.
"I don't know who has the most ego, Cavuto or O’Reilly. So I changed the channel."
Just tell me you, DJ, you changed that channel when "Bill" came on...not me.
"Neil, just saw your super hero list great stuff, can you put that online so I can share it with many thousands via all social media I have at my command?"
Yes, Ollie, you'll find my super hero message prominently featured on our Fox News site for the world and you to enjoy.
Randi, via MSN.
"I never hear better sense from an interviewer than I hear from you. Your interrupting is your super power! Somehow, under the hypnotic power of your interruptions, your interviewees find themselves making sense and speaking the truth!"
James, via Yahoo.
"Your super, Neil, but if you give Dems the great Clinton tax rates, you have to get his spending ratio to GDP at the same time."
Ruth in Delaware.
"I am so in agreement with your fiscal fix you are my hero, who says common sense is dead?"
It isn't, Ruth just in Washington.
You nailed it Neil! Perfect solution to the "fiscal cliff" situation....again you nailed it Neil.
Jay in Prescott Valley, Arizona.
"To the super hero Cavuto, I am glad to see someone is coming to the aid of this great country if you truly want to be a super hero, you might want to turn your talents to start educating the people on the economics of the country."
That's what I do on this show and on Fox Business every day, jay. Every. Day.
Sydney, age 13 writes, via MSN.
"I often watch your show with my dad. I think you are funny. But I always look at you and wonder, was he an odd kid? You just seem like you would have done some odd things."
If you call always worrying about the planet and trying to save it, "odd," young Sydney, then "yes," guilty as charged!
Kathy via Hotmail.com.
"I love you (not in a romantic way), but because you say it as it really is. I love your show, why don't you run for president."
Too busy, being a super hero, Kathy. I'll leave mere mortals to lead mere mortals. Thank you just the same.
Annie in Raleigh, N.C..
"Thanks for chewing out congress today and what are they thinking...Watching Lincoln, instead of fixing our economic problems!!"
Annie's talking about Harry Reid wanting to get a waiver so senators can bring food into a private screening of Steven Spielberg's Lincoln in the congressional visitor center auditorium.
Kathy in Middleboro, Mass.
"The fact that Harry Reid and the other senators are voting on such foolishness and they will not pass a budget. And Congress voting on the word "lunatic" being taken out oh my god, what the hell is happening to us?"
I shudder to think, Kathy. I shudder to think.
Don via Hotmail.
"Since when did a movie become so important that we put our budget and taxes on the back burner so we can pass a motion to allow food in a theater?"
"Neil, Reid wants food in the chamber so they can eat when they filibuster."
Alex via AOL.
"I think a Lincoln screening, with or without munchies, is a great idea. It might teach these knuckleheads something about backbone."
That's a very good point, Alex.
But not nearly as good a point as today's "e-mail" of the week!!!
"Just so you know, my mom and I both love you and actually fight over who should have the chance to marry you first. So take heart, Cavuto, the next time someone calls you fat, loud, pompous, ugly, just know there are two beautiful blondes that would scrap like high schoolers over you."
Well relax, ladies, enough of me to go around here.
