Fox News’ Cashin’ In show is supposed to be about business. But somehow, the entire panel on Saturday (9/21/13) was transformed into national security experts. Predictably, each one, including Fox News Democrat, Eboni K. Williams, found an excuse to criticize the Obama administration over the D.C Navy Yard shootings.
Jonathan Hoenig, who has no apparent expertise in national security, didn’t let that stop him from opining that more ethnic profiling is the solution (although no mention of how that would have flagged the D.C. shooter).
Later, Wayne Rogers, another one with no expertise in national security said:
The government is too big. We know that. You’ve got eight zillion agencies all falling all over themselves trying to do some kind of a job that they cannot do, they’re ill equipped to do, they snoop on each other, we know that. The head of the IRS snooping on us innocent citizens, and the people who are running the IRS don’t know any better. …Look at the amount of fraud, for example, that’s in the disability payments, over $1.4 billion dollars. I mean these are people who are inept, who are dumb, who are stupid, and we’ve got them all in the government. …Start all over.
Host Eric Bolling, panelists Michelle Fields, and Hoenig laughed, and Williams smiled.
