tv   Your World With Neil Cavuto  FOX News  September 23, 2010 4:00pm-5:00pm EDT

4:00 pm
glass half full and he stars "your world," right about now. >>neil: the g.o.p. becoming the party of crybabies? welcome, everyone, i am neil cavuto. is the grand old party in a grand old funk, losing to tea party-backed candidates looking more like party whiners than winners. especially when they do not win the party. take charlie crist who left his party and is still losing to the guy would he thought he could beat if he joined the new party. same story. losing to the same rubio. and in delaware, not ruling out writing himself in after christine o'donnell took him
4:01 pm
out. and same for alaska senator murkowski refusing to give up and the g.o.p. refusing to force her to give up a good committee post. the same party that said they were rallying around the guy would beat murkowski for that, joe miller who is now leading in alaska polls. even if he is not exactly embraced by republican polls. joe miller telling me moments ago, taking it all in stride. we will continue to communicate to alaska that we have to get our future under control. we cannot depend upon a government that is going bankrupt. it is making us more energetic and we had more volunteers come into the campaign than any other time and it is not bad for fundraising. >>neil: it is interesting on the establishment, not all, but some of the establishment republicans who have lost races
4:02 pm
to tea partiers like yourself, that is oversimplifying it, but mike castle comes to mind looking at a write in candidacy, and not going quietly into the night. what message is that sending? >>guest: well, liberals have a tough time giving up power. that is the message. we can see that. in both of their actions. and in addition we understand that in order to change the system it is not going to be easy. these folk are not going to lose or leave their power, it will require effort. this is not an election where everything changes at once but the american people, alaska, needs to understand we will have to move forward. >>neil: in the case of senator murkowski, she can keep senior post through the end of her term and the republican party is in the fighting her on that.
4:03 pm
doesn't seem to be, you know, on a national basis, you know, going crazy over you, or any of the other tea partiers that have emerged. what is happening? >>guest: to change washington, dc, you have to change the people that are there. this is a crisis of leadership that is caused our country to be at the point it is at. and the direction of this nation is not happening in one or two years but it has taken decades and that is reflected in the composition of who we have in washington, dc today. but the seniority will not manage after november, alaska will embrace the future which is resource development, moving forward in our state by getting more state control, and pushing the federal government out of our backyard. until the direction and the
4:04 pm
hits, they are coming from republicans, the ones who at least in alaska, did not want you originally. now they are saying they are for you as the nominee but, again, i see what they are doing with senator murkowski keeping her in the key assignments through the end, which is fine, but it is the 180-degree opposite of what they hinted at two days ago. what is going on? >>guest: i don't what is going on internally. but what we seeing in action, that was a disappointing move but we have funding coming in. we have public statements of endorsement, so i think the leadership is getting it. certainly there is a tension. i will be honest. it is very difficult when you are going in a new direction to have the leadership embrace that. especially with decades of the past. >>neil: i don't thing they are embracing it at all. i don't think they are embracing it and you are running for office and you are trying to be, you know, kind to all here but
4:05 pm
the fact of matter is, republicans appear to want to sipping off the same choir book but this hymn does not suit them and there was a time you were among the hymns that did not suit them and today they have this new "pledge to america," which is opposite, and president obama speaking at the u.n. so i am thinking if they are the keystone cops, not the tea partiers. >>guest: i am optimistic and i believe if the leadership does not respond to what is happening at the ground level there will be a real issue but i see indicators that it is. i do believe there is an understanding this is an opportunity to lead this nation into the direction it needs to go. certainly for alaska that is an extraordinary opportunity. we will focus on that. we will focus on the optimism. there certainly will be along the way little butches and --
4:06 pm
bumps but we have optimistic view the common sense americans will communicate clearly to their leaders they have elected that we have to go a different way and there will be a response. if not, that will just yet be another challenge. >>neil: say you are elected and the polls look good for you, and christine o'donnell out of nowhere pulls out of the race which looks like it is hers not to win you will have a bunch of inexperienced folks headed to washington, dc, and the establishment might, again, try to say, just, just want us, kids, we will show you the way. how do you handle that? >>guest: it is great that we have inexperienced people coming to washington, dc so they have not been coopted and they are coming with a goal to communicate to washington, dc
4:07 pm
that the people of the nation want to turn back the federal government, reverse growing, and give power to the states so alaska can develop their resource base and auto billion barrels of crude we have and the natural gas in anwr. it will require that approach to make things happen and i believe there will be enough numbers coming to washington, dc, we have an impact on those that were especially those facing re-election in two years. the same thing will happen to them that happened to the other incouple bents and if they do not respond to what the american people are saying, we know the system is broke, we know the past does not work, and, look, we want control back at home in our own states, i think, i believe there will be a responsiveness. again, that is optimism, but, i want to be doing this thing. if i was not optimistic about the future of the nation. >>neil: sarah palin has early supported you and popped in and out of key states that could play a big role in a couple of
4:08 pm
years. would you support her for president? >>guest: we have been asked that question before. a number of great candidates out there including -- welfare have lad a number of people that have introduced their names at potential candidates in 20112 and certainly sarah palin is on the top of that ticket. you have a number of folk that would be better than president obama but i will tell you this: this is not a race about palin or murkowski but it is a race about changing the direction of this nation, a race about making sure that alaska gets its resource base back into production and alaska when the bottom falls out of the federal government alaska can move forward. that is what the focus has to be. >>neil: so there was no quid pro quo when she endorsed you, that never came up?
4:09 pm
>>guest: no, no, no, never been a conversation like that. people that know me understand my and is putting this state forward making sure we can get at the federal level constitutional government back to where it needs to be, reversing the growth of government. people that know me know that the way i do business is not in response to certain things. i think governor palin is an asset to the country and done extraordinary things for the country and doing extraordinary things right now and she is raising the level of dialogue so this nation addresses the problems that are happening at the central level but i don't make deals. that, really, is the joe miller that alaska will elect if they make that choice in november. >>neil: joe miller thank you very much. we called his opponent and we are working with all the campaigns and try to set something up.
4:10 pm
stay tuned. >> i saw your open with the crying baby was great but ?ultding. toe the baby. i could not believe the way the republican party is handling this, when you look at --. physical until you think that because you are a new mom. >>guest: yes. >>neil: but they cannot let go and like kids they are hanging on. >>guest: that is the problem. look at mike calf, for 30 years, he has won every single race in delaware and on benned knee his -- and on bended knee his opponents have offered support. the time he loses he is acting
4:11 pm
like an old guy instead of a extinguished elder statesman. he lost. >>neil: but other races and other areas where officially the party rallies around and i get a sense that it is grudging and i wonder should a lot of your candidates in particular, how will that go down in washington, dc, in november? >>guest: they do not know what to make. they have to realize we do not need them to show us the ropes. if experience, they say we do not have experience abandoning our principles or ignoring the people who sent us. why don't we teach you what it is to actually represent the people who sent you there. that is what democracy is. this is not a top down country. that is what the establishment on both sides have forgotten.
4:12 pm
the republican party is positively, smacks of fear. they do not know what to make of us. we are your natural allies. you should seek to work with us. i fail to see how there is not a leader who will make that happen. >>neil: good to see you. stay tuned. he's single and i'm going to introduce you in two weeks

>>neil: we are at legal hill and a bill with a big price tag of $30 million on the way to the president's desk. republicans claim that it is a waste of money and small businesses would benefit more from a permanent cut in taxes or at the least an extension of the bush cut in taxes but how majority whip says they are big time wrong on this small business bill. congressman, thank you for coming. so the small business thing you think will do the trick? >>guest: it will be another step in the right direction. we are in the going to correct all of these things overnight. i don't know why anyone would expect us in eight months to clean up the mess created over eight years. this is another step. in the right direction. we now have had eight tax cuts for small businesses. this is just another step. i suspect we will go to nine and
4:17 pm
ten. we do not want do clog up the system. we want to do this in a way that is lasting. >>neil: but a lot the small business men and women say just extend all the bush tax cuts. a lot of us pay at the top income rate for big business and they hear you saying it is only 3 percent but when you have average small business of ten employees or more they make up half of all small business so give them a break and do not gift this. >>guest: maybe the people on your show love bush tax cuts but the people i talk to are not in love with tax cuts. >>neil: but 45 your members say, yes, we could agree with the congressman on raising taxes on the rich but just not now. so you have a problem. >>guest: 45 out of 255 is not a mutiny.
4:18 pm
>>neil: you went from zero to 45. >>guest: the fact of the matter is all of those people you are talking about, plus one republican, voted for the bill we just passed and just enrolled and that is on the way to the president. >>neil: you are right. but that is different. what i am talking about on the tax cut issue, congressman, if some of the deals, including extending all of the cut, are you, as a leader, and nancy pelosi, are you open to that? is a deal in the works to include that? just for now, extending them all? >>guest: no. i am in the for blowing $700 billion hole in the deficit and that is what the republicans are pushing for. we believe --. >>neil: i understand you are not for the $700 billion hole but you are fine blowing a $600
4:19 pm
billion hole for the middle-class tax cuts. >>guest: we are trying to do this fiscally responsible way. the bill we just sent to the president does not add one dime to the deficit. and that's why we are doing this the way we are doing it. in a very responsible way so we can do what needs to be done for small businesses without adding to the deficit. and as we go along, we will create opportunities to do that. for us to now just extend bush's tax cuts, his tax cuts got us in the ditch we are in. >>neil: we can argue that back and forth. i am curious, sir, and i wish i had more time, you are concerned about the deficit now, in the throwing programs at it but you have made it worst and had a lost emergency measures for whatever reason, that made the deficit worse and now you are waking up, and discovering,
4:20 pm
religion. >>guest: what we did, we stopped the hemorrhaging. we were losing 750,000 jobs a month the last three months of the bush administration. we have stopped that hemorrhaging and we have shown constant job growth for the last eight months. >>neil: sir we have 10 percent unemployment rate. >>guest: but it could be 16 percent or 17 percent according to some of the republicans. >>neil: maybe so, but the reality is i have to deal with life on earth and reality is, you have a sick economy. >>guest: that is exactly right and it is getting really. the fact is you stop the hemorrhaging and you start applying the remedy and we stopped it. we are not losing jobs. we are not gaining maybe not as fast as you would like but we are increasing jobs every month and the american people will see that. >>neil: thank you. always good to have you.
