Fox's Neil Cavuto and Scott Brown ignored all the ways that Netanyahu has dissed Obama, as well as the fact that nearly half of Americans take issue with his speech before Congress, and suggested that the White House and some Congressional Democrats had inexcusably snubbed him by refusing to attend.
Cavuto asked Scott Brown, the former Republican senator turned Fox News contributor, turned Republican senatorial candidate, turned Fox News contributor again to explain, “What the heck is going on here?”
Brown, of course, took the side of Israel and blamed the Obama administration. He said, “The administration once again is not helping in its relationship with Israel. The relationship has been the worst since the creation of the state of Israel, and you have a situation right now where the Prime Minister – there’s no better qualified person in the world to understand the challenges of defending against trying to be wiped off the face of the earth, and also dealing with the deceit and lies of the country of Iran. Here we are …more and more deadlines, so called, are being passed on and passed over with the administration not holding Iran to the fire. And I think it’s good that he comes.” Brown also complained about the “embarrassing, complete show of disrespect” from Democrats who had refused to attend the speech.
Both Cavuto and Brown reluctantly praised Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY). Cavuto said, “I can’t believe I’m saying this, but his point was, yes, protocol was violated, it was the wrong way to go about this, but a head of state, our only friend in the Middle East, is speaking to Congress tomorrow. You go there.”
Brown added, “I’m not a big Chuck Schumer fan, but I agree with him in this instance.”
Cavuto ended the discussion with his stamp of approval for Brown: “Always speaking your mind, I appreciate that.”
During the interview, a box on the right of the screen showed that an NBC News/Wall St. Journal poll found 48% disapproved of President Obama not being told of the invitation to Netanyahu, while 30% approve.
Apparently, Cavuto and Brown, were too enamored of Netanyahu and his Republican accomplices to care.
