Don’t you just know that if Senator Harry Reid had said, “Go f*** yourself” to House Speaker John Boehner, we’d be hearing about it for days, if not weeks or months, on Fox News? They'd be hammering President Obama and every Democrat on Fox to condemn the language. But not only has Fox News not criticized Boehner for cursing out Reid, the “fair and balanced” Neil Cavuto all but endorsed the Speaker’s potty mouth.
As part of yesterday’s Common Sense to finish Your World, Cavuto said:
For what it’s worth, I think it’s entirely justified…
I could well understand the Speaker speaking the way he did at a guy who wasn’t remotely doing what he said. My gosh, it is a wonder to me Boehner didn’t drop the f bomb more.
…Boehner’s a boar for being blunt and telling the other guy to his face what he thought. But Reid’s an angel for being a phony and preferring to rip the other guy only behind his back. This isn’t about a Speaker losing it, my friends. This little exchange is more about a phony decorum that tries to hide it. What is weird is that folks like Boehner and Eric Cantor are called fiscal stiffs on the cover of today’s New York Daily News for having serious issues with a rescue bill for Sandy victims because it wasn’t going to just Sandy victims but Democrats happy to sign a $60 billion blank check are saints, tapping that same dough and feeling happy to tap it to repair things like Smithsonian Museum roofs and plant trees in Ohio. Untold millions for items that had nothing to do with Sandy, so not exactly dandy.
It is a wonder Boehner didn’t curse more. It’s even more of a wonder why the media didn’t wish he did.
That’s not fair, that’s not right, that is wrong. Would it ever kill us to get the other side of the story? Would we ever try?
GOD GAVE YOU TWO MIDDLE FINGERS — USE THEM!
