Fox News’ Cavuto: Obama Was a ‘Nobody’ on 9/11 (Video)

September 11, 2010

(ChattahBox Political News)—Leave it to Fox News, to find a way to slam President Obama on a day of remembrance on the ninth anniversary of 9/11. During First Lady Michelle Obama’s moving speech honoring the victims of Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA, Neil Cavuto cut into the live coverage to make the point that nine-years ago President Obama was a “nobody.” And the “young lady,” as he called her, was married to a “nobody.”

When Cavuto decided he had listened to enough of the First Lady’s live speech, he broke in to reminisce about Barack Obama’s surprising career track from a “nobody” in Illinois to the President of the United States. As Cavuto put it, “very few thought he would eventually become a senator let alone president of the United States.”

As opposed of course, to George W. Bush, who was preparing to kick some terrorist butt nine-years ago and lied to us, so he could start a war with a country that had nothing to do with the terrorist attacks of September 11.

CAVUTO: If you think about where we were then, that young lady was then, and her husband was then, he was not even an Illinois senator then. He was a rising political figure in Illinois, but very few thought he would eventually become a senator, let alone President of the United States. It wasn’t until 2004, in a speaking role that then, Democratic nominee John Kerry had offered him at that convention that ultimately catapulted his career to the 2008 nomination of the Democrats. And of course being elected in his own right. But nine years ago this day, he was a nobody and she was married to a guy who was not that well known. That was then, and this is now.

After that in-depth September 11 commentary, Cavuto brought on former Bush Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, who resigned in disgrace, to talk about Bush’s War on Terror.

    Cavuto needs to stop whining and crying about this. President Obama is the American Dream come to life. I can’t recall the number of times I’ve heard parents tell their kids that they can become POTUS. I’m in my late 50s, and I’ve heard this more times than I can count. Is Cavuto now saying that because Obama came from humble roots, educated himself, worked within the system, followed the rules and ended up in the White House this is now a bad thing? IMHO, it’s Cavuto’s patriotism and faith in America that needs to be questioned instead of President Obama’s.

    I’m an example of the American Dream. I lived the first 18 years of my life under segregation, educated myself, earned an undergraduate and graduate degrees, worked 35 years without ever been unemployed, and retired. I guess when you’re dealing with people with Cavuto’s mindset, I, too, was/am a nobody. Thank God neither my parents nor I listened to him or the others who felt that I shouldn’t have reached for the stars.

    I don’t see why Cavuto or anyone else should be complaining when neither my nor the president’s accomplishments cost them one cent. I think the core issue that people like Cavuto have with people like myself and the president is the fact that we don’t fit the stereotypes that they have of us, and we prove that anyone who works hard can be successful. We are confirmation that the American Dream is alive, well, and achievable.
