Fox’s Cavuto slams Bachmann on suing Obama: “There’s so much Wrong Here”

It’s not often that a FOXNews host takes a Tea Party “darling” like Michelle Bachmann to task for her Obama-Derangement-Syndrome, but that’s exactly what happened earlier today when Neil Cavuto got into a shouting match with Bachmann regarding her support for House Speaker John Boehner’s pathetic push to file suit against President Obama for having the audacity to behave as many presidents have before him.

Cavuto even called out Bachmann for her shameless hypocrisy, asking, “Where was your rage when Democrats were going after President Bush on the same use of executive orders, because I think you knew then that that was a waste of time then and I think you know in your heart of hearts this is a waste of time now?”

Michelle Bachmann, looking visibly flustered, started grasping for straws, and referenced the first manufactured scandal she could remember.

He also ripped Bachmann for her hypocrisy a second time when she threatened to “defund the executive branch.”

For that matter, the Republican House hasn’t been able to pass much of anything, given that they need to craft legislation that the Senate will approve AND the President will sign. (That pesky Constitution again…) And this is why said President is issuing so many Executive Orders. The country can’t just run on autopilot.

    The summer silly season has started early this year, and with an election coming up this fall, it’s going to get weirder before it gets better. Until then, only the comedians will benefit.

  2. It looks like the corporate extreme right is beginning to reassess its relationship with the militia/neoconfederate/theocrat extreme right. Fox News is the former’s way of controlling and shaping the latter. And with recent overseas events, the corporate class, extreme or not, is looking at the decline of US power overseas accelerating if the Tea Party hamstrings the executive branch, the same way that Watergate accelerated it during the fall of S. Vietnam.
