Fudge Factor

Bill O'Reilly continues to beclown himself, particularly on economic issues, but this time Cavuto was there to at least present a reasonable counterargument.

Bill doesn't want the government "running the economy", just ousting executives and telling them to change everything.

I disagree with Cavuto on one thing - of course the oil companies were attempting to maximize their profits. That's beside the point. The major oil companies are dwarfed by state owned oil companies in OPEC nations. They don't control jack.

But I agree with Cavuto's central point - the cure is often worse than the disease. Be careful what you wish for.
