Fox Business Network Host Neil Cavuto Blasts McCain: ‘On Economic Matters You Have No Convictions’

By

Last night on Fox Business Network's Cavuto, the host took a moment to shred John McCain's economic policy, calling it inconsistent, "cockamamie," and "a mockery." While Cavuto explained that he is against Obama's policies, he argued that they are at least consistent, whereas McCain's are all over the place:

I am sure I'm not the only one confused … confused by a man who says he hates government spending, but supports pushing $300 billion to bail out folks behind on their mortgage. You can't say you're against earmarks when you're earmarking that kind of dough, Senator. Or adding more than $50 billion to a stimulus plan you cannot pay for … all the while blasting your opponent for coming up with programs he can't pay for. Frankly, neither of your numbers adds up. But I’ve come to see a consistent pattern in Obama's. For the life of me, Senator Straight Talk, I see no such straight thing with yours.


That, Cavuto says, is why John McCain is losing. "You rail against big government," he says, addressing the candidate. "Yet continue to push cockamamie spending plans that make a mockery of it." It's not exactly an endorsement for Obama, but it's certainly some withering fire from a camp that was supposed to be friendly.
