Cavuto Trashes Barack Obama Based on a "Gotcha" Sound Bite

Reported by Melanie - September 13, 2008 -

As anyone who has been paying attention knows, Barack Obama's tax proposal (in a nutshell) is that there will be no tax increase for people making less than $250,000 per year and there would be a tax cut for those making under $75,000. He has been consistent on that from day one. However, yesterday (September 12, 2008), at a rally in Dover, NH, Obama misspoke and said, "Everyone in America, everyone, will pay lower taxes than they paid in the 1990's under Bill Clinton at a time when the economy was growing and we produced 22 million new jobs."

Just minutes after claiming that Charlie Gibson's question to Sarah Palin about the Bush Doctrine was a "gotcha question," Neil Cavuto played a ten second gotcha clip of Obama saying that in Dover, and then he launched into a five minute segment featuring Democratic Strategist Malia Lazu during which Lazu could hardly get a word in edgewise given Cavuto's ranting interruptions as he hammered away at her, implying that Obama is a flip-flipping liar.

If you have a few minutes, check out the video, below of a "fair and balanced news" anchor:

Mind you, I haven't heard a word about the string of out-and-out lies that John McCain and Sarah Palin told this week.

UPDATE: Here is a transcript of the speech. In it Obama also said: "It's time for folks like me who make over $250,000 to pay our fair share to keep the American promise alive for our children and grandchildren."

UPDATE 9/14: No doubt Cavuto will be all over this come Monday: "In Interview, McCain Says He'll Reduce Taxes for 'Everybody'". (I guarantee we won't hear a word.)
