Fox’s “Business block” show, Cashin’ In, spent an entire segment attacking outgoing Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) for not having any regrets over his claim that Mitt Romney had not paid his taxes.
What this has to do with business – other than the fact that on Fox, the only good business policy is to go along with all things GOP – nobody ever said.
Panelist Wayne Rogers called Reid “a scumbag politician.” Rogers added, “He’s the worst. He stands for the worst things that we have in this country. A guy who will stand up on the floor of the Senate, an august unit of the government, and lie deliberately.”
Even host Eric Bolling called those “very, very harsh words.”
Juan Williams was the lone Democrat on the four-person panel (not counting Bolling). Williams said, “Politics is hardball, Wayne.”
But Rogers doubled down: “The terrible part about this is that he did it on the floor of the Senate, where he cannot be held for libel,” Rogers said. “…He uses the Senate floor as protection. He’s a scumbag.”
Panelist Jonathan Hoenig called it “power lust in the most ugly form. I mean, It’s almost as if he’s without conscience, without morals.”
Panelist Lisa Boothe called Reid “a lying liar.” She sneered, “I’ve got one thing to say to Harry Reid: See ya.”
”That’s a great way to end this show,” Bolling said. “That’s very good.”
