On the July 27, 2012 Your World, Neil Cavuto played a clip of Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) giving an anti-big government speech on the House floor - where he got a standing ovation afterward. Cavuto gushed. "Man, oh man, I think a star was just born there."
Cavuto then chatted with Kelly, still on the House floor. Cavuto said, "First of all Congressman, kudos to you, I apologize for referring to you as the President, so that was just a slip of the tongue… What got you all riled up?" Kudos? Not very fair and balanced.
Kelly spoke about the "absolutely ridiculous burden we put on our people, on job creators; …We drive them offshore, then we say they're unpatriotic... We have got to find a way to cut this red tape that's costing us $1.75 trillion (a year)."
"You know, Congressman, what made that,” Cavuto continued, “and I'm not blowing you smoke, and I'm sorry if I promoted you to President of the United States before, that was my bad, but it was your passion... You did it with a little you-know-what and vinegar - and it resonated."
Kelly rhetorically addressed President Obama and his administration: “Have you walked that walk? Have you worried about meeting payrolls? Have you worried about being in compliance? If you haven't done it, you don't know how hard it is for us.” Kelly added, “It's time for us to take back our country. We forfeited it to people who don't know what they’re doing. .. Please get away from us. Just let us do what we know how to do. We worried about it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
Cavuto said admiringly, "There was passion in your voice, young man. And maybe you carry that extra weight because you are a businessman, you know what you speak. Congressman, a real pleasure. And that was something to watch... If you want passion, which I think we need back in Washington, that was passion."
What a kiss up! Cavuto might as well go to Pennsylvania and work on Kelly's campaign
And yet, h kept bringing up this ‘slip’.
One that deserves more than a written repsonse on a political blog.
Edited for brevity

Slobber over this, Kneel and Kelly:

Well, that got me all curious — I wanted to ask Kelly, “have YOU??”
So, I consulted the intertubes . . . and I see by Kelly’s wiki that
After college, he worked for his father’s car Chevrolet/Cadillac car dealership. In 1995, he purchased his father’s business, and then added Hyundai and KIA to his dealership lineup.
A car dealer. How apt.
His only other work experience prior to Congress was as a city councilman in Butler, PA.
