Cavuto Shows His True Colors as Republicans Bash Republicans

Reported by Melanie - May 25, 2005

A picture of how radical Republicans view the filibuster "compromise" reached on Monday night is beginning to emerge. Charles Grassley (R-IA) was a guest on Your World w/Neil Cavuto today (May 25, 2005). Cavuto and Grassley discussed several issues, including that "so-called compromise."

Cavuto opened the discussion by asking Grassley what he thought of the "renegade Senators" who "crafted the effort" to break the filibuster "log jam."

Grassley said the Senators who worked the deal are "setting themselves up as kind of a God, to go to people to get an okay of who the President is going to appoint." Grassley said he doesn't mind if they "set themselves up that way" but he would mind "if the President looks to them to be a judge of who he should appoint to the Supreme Court," because then he "won't be fulfilling the promises he made in the last election." Grassley said Bush has "in mind" the type of people he wants to appoint, "the same strict constructionists he talked about appointing during the last election," and he'll appoint those people "regardless of this so-called compromise."

Comment: I knew Cavuto was a Republican but now I know he is an extreme and radical Republican. When Cavuto used the term "renegade" to describe the moderate Republicans who worked the "deal" with the Democrats, his allegiance to the extremists was made clear. I will watch with interest to see how he defends his extremist friends, the ones I'd call the renegades.
