As President Obama sought to blame Fox News for the Democrats’ humbling and humiliating showing on Election Day, Fox host Neil Cavuto suggested Friday that Obama was in denial over the fact that his mistakes doomed the Democratic Party.

During a Rolling Stone interview about the election, Obama continued his assault on media outlets that reported different perspectives than his.
“The challenge is people are getting a hundred different visions of the world from a hundred different outlets or a thousand different outlets, and that is ramping up divisions. It’s making people exaggerate or say what’s most controversial or peddling in the most vicious of insults or lies, because that attracts eyeballs,” Obama said.
He later added that the election loss was triggered in part by “Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country.”
Cavuto heard in Obama’s words the same type of refusal to admit the truth Cavuto had experienced with health issues that led him to need open heart surgery.
“Denial is deadly, so forgive me when I see the same reaction from President Obama, not over a physical crisis, but a personal crisis, this election. His candidate lost, and he cannot fathom why,” Cavuto said.
Cavuto said Obama is confusing cause and effect.
“Fox News didn’t create this populist wave, your policies did. It wasn’t us playing in bars that doomed you, but so many maybe going to those bars because of you,” he said.
Cavuto noted that Obama does not seem to have understood the consequences of his actions.
“You went after the rich, and seemed stunned when everyone else revolted. All but called the other side racist, yet failed to see the writing on the wall that was pretty black and white,” Cavuto said.
“Just like you failed to see that voters didn’t have a problem with the color of your skin, maybe just the thickness of it. Just like you failed to see Americans weren’t chauvinist for rejecting a woman for president, maybe just this woman for president,” he added.
Cavuto said the election turned on what the president had done, not what voters were doing.
“The buck stopped with you, not some guys in a bar watching Fox reporting on you. Fox News didn’t win an election, Mr. President, you lost it. Yet it’s still lost on you.”
Cavuto closed with one final comment.
“Sometimes the toughest part is looking in the mirror and the only guy looking back is you,” he said.
