Ok it wasn’t like a pop in the jaw, but in a contentious debate Caddell gets so frustrated at Hewitt interrupting him that in the heat of the moment he strikes him on the arm which kinda surprised Hugh:

I hate when people interrupt instead of letting people make their point. I lean Republican, but I actually enjoyed seeing Mr. Caddell give that guy a little poke to get his attention and he’s right – both parties are screwed up and people are damn mad about it.

Hugh should have turned to that lying leftist putz Pat Caddell and knocked him right on his ass. That would have shut him up for sure. smile

Pat is usually more of a Clintonian strategist type and HH is a commentator. No point trying to get any fancy swordplay started there. Still better than enduring BS Bob.

Hugh was annoying for interrupting even though Pat was wrong. Hannity should have told Hugh to shut it and let Pat finish his point.

TOO FUNNY,… I like Pat,.. but he IS a DemocRAT none the less.

Hewitt wasn’t going to let Pat try and tar the Tea Party Republicans as being the same as the DemocRATS.

Kudos to Hewitt.

Dude you did it too!!! AWESOME…maybe if you guys do it enough(capitalize the R, A and T in Democrat…like this, watch…DemocRAT), it will catch on and they will be forced to change the logo of their party! Wouldn’t that be great for our nation?!?
Yeah you tea partiers just keep doin your thing…grabbin the wheel and drunkenly swerving off the road to recovery to the ditch of economic malaise by holding the worlds economy hostage to some arbitrary limit because you dont understand the consequences of your actions, or ANYTHING REALLY…KUDOS TO YOU

The way I see it, when someone is talking, let them finish and then have a response.

It is pretty rude to constantly cut-off, over talk and interrupt someone.

These people are not at a frat house, they are on television debating a issue.

This just demonstrates lack of the knowledge of the rules for debate and respect.

Why do they even have Pat Caddell on? On any issue a statement should be read that the Caddell position is “a pox on both their houses.” The country is circling the drain, and we have to fight just to get a teeny tiny cut in spending? How exactly is that playing politics, Pat? As to Hewitt interrupting poor Pat, maybe he has a little passion about our desparate situation and “he’s not gonna take it anymore.” I wish Pat would ascend back to Mt. Olympus and continue to let aphrodite feed him grapes.

Hewitt has more reps from the actual Tea Party movement on his show than any other host. Yeah, he gets it wrong from time to time, but usually rights his own ship.
The only thing he doesn’t get is that Colt McCoy is never going to be much of a quarterback.

What Caddell and Hewitt both seem to miss here is that none of these proposals they are fighting over in Washington are going to get us out of the debt mess we find ourselves in and that will be a complete nightmare for the country in ten years or less. As much as I support Cut, Cap, & Balance, it is still a relatively moderate plan that DOES raise the debt ceiling. The prospect of a Balanced Budget Amendment is what makes it so appealing.

I disagree. Hannity cannot predict what types of arguments or conflicts might erupt in these American panel discussions. It was bound to happen sooner or later. This is the first incident I have ever seen that could even be labeled as any sort of violence and while inexcusable, was still just a bump on the arm. We’re not talking about people swinging chairs at each other (Geraldo) or punches flying-not yet at least. Hannity is always civil to his guests even when he disagrees. Sometimes too civil.

From what I saw Hewitt and Hannety are both wrong. For the most part I despise liberals but Caddell was speaking and Hewitt would not allow him to get his statement out. Hewitt was acting like O’Reilly and it was not his show. Caddell from what I have seen in the past is very rational to be a liberal.

This is the same Hugh Hewitt that plays “Kiss Ass” when he has lefties like Johnny Alter, Howard Fineman, ect. on his show. He was dumb enough to believe that Politico was going to be a nonpartisan webite when it first debuted. The best part of him wound up as a stain on the mattress.

I saw it last night. Hewitt, whom I used to like, was just damned rude. Cadell was trying to make a serious point – that the country is just damned fed up with both parties, and Hewitt was interrupting him constantly and loudly to prevent him from making his point. It was as bad – given the studio context – as anything I ever saw in the ’60s of a leftist trying to shout down a conservative speaker. Disgraceful.

Hugh is really rude typical RINO. I actually like Pat. One of the few honest Dems out there. His analysis is usually based in reality at least as far as polls are real.

Hugh worked for Nixon and in his heart he’s a GOP DC insider. It taints every take he has on national issues. It doesn’t surprise me that he’s a clueless apologist for the Repubics.

On his radio show he is an exceptional interviewer. He’s maddeningly polite to leftists which conceals a real talent for letting them make asses of themselves. But here he is the ass. Caddell is right. He should have just slugged him. It would have done him good.

Rome burns while pundits fiddle. The economy crumbles and to these nitwits, our worthless paper money has absolutely nothing to do with it. It’s the other guy’s party that is causing all the problems. Overall, these two gentlemen are an essential cog responsible for the our nation’s current problems. Pointing fingers everywhere but the right direction. Nobody blames the real culprit; after all, what’s not to love about a legalized Ponzi scheme. That is, until the note comes due. Basically, the bank’s calling in the note and dopes like these guys want to blame the other guy’s “party”. Every single one of these hack political operatives, which have graced the nation’s political stage since 1913, are to blame. As they continue to pontificate and attempt to assign blame at each other, the insidious scourge continues unabated. That scourge is, hands-down, the federal reserve and the direct federal income tax. As… Read more »

Hugh disappoints me as what I thought was a Reagan conservative and not one of the Bushies like Carl Rove? He is now thrown in the towel in support for the Boehner Bill. He should not have interrupted Caddell though. I was shocked at Caddell’s aggression. He is usually able to keep it in check despite that look on his face that there is something untoward bubbling up under the surface of that cool demeanor. I will agree with him that both parties are completely screwed up-perhaps not for the exact reasons as he gives, but screwed up none the less.

Putting aside who had the better argument, I think from strictly a public relations standpoint Mr. Caddell fared better than Mr. Hewitt.

And this comes from someone (me) who has rarely had good things to say about Caddell who more often than not comes across as annoying and arrogant.

Rand Paul’s prediction on Hannity tonight was haunting. Boehner’s bill passes the House and is then modified to the Harry Reid & the Senate Dems liking in the senate. It then bounces back to the House and the phony “repubic-ans”, as Mark Levin would say, cave in and sell out the American people. We do not have a representative government any longer. God help us all!!

That’s one of their techniques.

I remember as a little leftie organizer being taught that if you are ever talking with news people don’t answer their question, just say the party line messages. Give the answer we want to give, take control of the discussion. Make them irrelevant.

Apparently manners have gone out the window.

Pat Caddell was absolutely right.. Both Political Parties, but specifically talking about the Republican Party, is only concerned with their own selfish greedy arrogant elitist political agenda and party establishment, to hold onto their good old boy country club privilege and power.. and are not representative of the Patriotic Constitutional Conservative American People.. That’s why the Tea Party Patriotic People, do not trust the Republican Party, as much as the Obamacratic party.. and that’s why they both hate the Tea Party, because the Tea Party is the average ordinary patriotic America citizen, which these elitists do not want to let them take the reins of power and govt. authority, that’s why.. but we have news for them.. that’s too bad..!! get used to it.!!!

The moment any libidiot tries to slander conservatives/TEA partiers, he/she needed to be stopped.
Thats it. they have to be shut up, they have been doing this for too long and getting away with it everytime.
Enough is enough.
Obama hates America. He always hated it , so do the dems.
Lets just accept it and move on . No more giving benefits of the doubts to the marxists.
No libtard has ever given benefit of the doubt to conservatives / TEA Party people.
No more free passes just because your man in WH hates our country.
