Cavuto on his critics, fame and pain

As many of you already know, I admire Neil Cavuto so much. He not only is one of the hardest workers at Fox News (two shows daily, plus managing editor of FBC), he also struggles with a terribly debilitating disease, MS. He gives me courage and hope.

Last night he addressed his critics who claim he is living the good life and therefore can’t credibly stand up against social welfare programs that are too big and too costly to continue at the current levels. This commentary is one of my favorites.


Bless you Neil. You the man!

    As ee cummings said, "It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are."

    This encompasses not only who you grow up to be emotionally, psychologically, & sexually, but spiritually AND physically–not only the face you show to the world, but all the chinks in your armor including debilitating disease, visible or not.  It is wisdom that allows us to realize that we are not defined by our disease or disability.

    Neil is a profile in courage, as are you, Jim.  Keep fightin' the good fight! (((hugs))) Winni

    People on the media front lines championing freedom and conservative values do not "have it easy". Leftist lesbians like Rosie O'Donell are set for life in the media even when they have a long track record of low ratings. Arts and entertainment media have long  been dominated by the homosexual elites  for hundreds of years , but more so than in the past their sexual  orientation means having distinct  political and religious bigotries . The conservatives in the media today are like token minorities  . Some networks do not even bother with the false appearance of being ideologically inclusive .

    A personal note to Neil and anyone else who lives with a chronic painful debilitating condition: Neil, I salute you for your courage for fighting the good fight regardless of your personal maladies. You exemplify what many other individuals cannot seem to comprehend; you daily rise above your personal afflictions and are living life to your fullest potential.

    Some other individuals could learn a lesson from you though I somehow doubt that they would; it seems to me that it is much easier for some people to whine and moan and blame their situation on someone or something else instead of having the fortitude to face their infirmities. Courage takes character and personal responsibility, traits that the whiners, moaners and blamers may never know. Despair is so self-defeating.

    I will not enumerate my pains; I know pain. I am a Disabled American Veteran from a time when Veterans were called many hateful names just for doing our duty and surviving. And, I feel lucky and cherish each day that I am given to live.

    So, Neil, I salute you for your extraordinary courage.

    I wonder if any of those who commented that Neil should feel[ their]  pain wrote back to say anything in way of an appology? Obamacare will help them all out.Neil is a true gentleman by all definitions of the word. God bless himand you also Jim Vicevich. I refuse to listen to wtic till you come back or will listen to you if you go to another station.
