Given the big news story of the day, host Neil Cavuto opened by asking for his thoughts on Joseph Stack crashing into an Austin IRS office building.
After initially recognizing the tragedy and showing feeling for the families affected by the tragedy, Brown immediately connected the anger and frustration that fueled his election to Senate to the tragic events that unfolded in Texas earlier that day.

Mark my words: This guy is going places in the GOP.

CNN reported that the man set his house on fire, stole the plane and crashed it intentionally, citing a federal official…
