On Saturday’s Cavuto on Business, the topic was the size of government. Regular panelist Charles Payne, not surprisingly, unloaded on the Democrats. He described the election as being between “big business” and “big welfare.” By “big welfare,” he meant “big government.” Payne went on to say, “Big welfare is destructive. It stops innovation, that’s all big government is, by the way.” Later, he added, “I thought the Democratic convention was so mean spirited, so anti-American, that it’s hard for me to believe this country is tilting in that direction."
Anti American? Payne has every right to be critical of the Democrats, if that’s his opinion, but to call the convention “anti-American” is outrageous. But nobody on the show objected.
Payne also commented that whereas his little friends wanted as a birthday present a ball or other toys, he wanted a briefcase. He always wanted to be a businessman. The Fox Business website has a short biography of Charles with a photo of him. It mentions his book, “Be Smart, Act Fast, Get Rich: Your Game Plan for Getting It Right in the Stock Market.”
Hmm. Even Payne must know that the number of people “getting it right” has to be limited else all will be ‘suckers’. He should have just titled his book:
“Be A Huckster, Not A Sucker”
A true Fux Nuze hero.
“Anti-American” = anti-white GOP 1%
mean spirited, last time I had a laugh like this is when Ollie North was whining about Bill Clinton lying.
Watching the statistically-challenged and frantically-spinnng commentators on Fox is increasingly fun although I can’t watch them for more than five minutes before zapping elsewhere.
With eight weeks and day until election day the momentum that is now in the President’s favor can change, but so far it seems there is no love or enthusiasm for those who plan on voting for Mitt, but his support comes from those who just hate the President. His voters are not pro-Romney, just anti-Obama.
As soon as the DNC ended, however, everybody went back to the sarcastically curled upper lip and the insinuatingly stunning Cavuto mark. Will the foxy faithful also turn on that dime? Stay tuned and you shall see for yourself.
Yes, Count, I’m also sensing the rising stench of fear.
And, yes, AAP: they think Jesus is cheering and applauding the “me-first-and-me-only” politics of a certain segment of republicans. True republicans like the father-in-law of al in la are not so sure.
