You Can Bet Neil Cavuto Isn't Interrupting These People

Reported by Melanie - June 18, 2008 -

Neil Cavuto has a thing for ex-Clinton supporters. Or, more precisely, he has a thing for people who claim to be Democrats who are willing to come on his show to bash Barack Obama and insist that McCain is the better of the two candidates. (Apparently he can't find any Republicans who are willing to do that.)

The parade continues this week.

On Monday, Will Bower, one of the founders of Party Unity My Ass (PUMA) was on for the second time (see above link). Cavuto introduced him by saying that PUMA members are "liking" McCain "more and more." Some of the members of Bowers' group met with McCain over the weekend and were "reassured" that he is the best guy for the job. Bowers said he's "leaning toward him." He said the DNC is "putting forth an anti-democratically elected candidate." He would like to see a McCain/Clinton ticket, "I think that would be revolutionary and that is what I would personally love to see."

Yesterday, Harriet Christian made an encore appearance. You remember her:


She talked about how she has worked for decades for women's rights but she reiterated that she will vote for McCain, never minding his vow to appoint Supreme Court judges who will overturn Roe v. Wade. "I am basically voting for John McCain because I am so disenchanged by the Democratic party." Barack Obama is "changing everything to the way he wants it." "I fought for a long time for Roe v. Wade. When do we start discussing other issues that women are interested in?"

Today (June 18, 2008) Cynthia Lowney was on, complaining that Clinton was "dissed" (Cavuto's word), "in every single way." About Obama: "I don't think he's qualified, he's mislead people, I don't really think he's been vetted, he's mixed up with Rezko..." She said she would, "prefer McCain over Obama," and "might vote for McCain" if Clinton doesn't grab the nomination at the convention. She said Obama's a "flip flopper." He needs to be vetted, "fair and balanced reporting" "He got rid of his pastor, he got rid of his church - I don't know if he joined a new church - he's now wearing his pin after giving a big speech why he won't wear a pin. I don't care if he wears a pin or not but he's a flip flopper."

Cavuto wrapped the segment up with, "You are a loyal friend and you stay with someone through thick and thin."

Comment: I'm sure all of this is music to Cavuto's ears but I'm sorry. These people don't sound like Democrats to me. Wonder if someone - as in a Republican organization - is paying them. Oh, and you'll be the first to know when Cavuto has a real, live, average Joe or Jane on who's jumpin' up and down about McCain.
