Oops! Eric Cantor Mixes Up Neil Cavuto With Bret Baier

Appearing on Fox Business Network’s Cavuto Thursday night, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor spoke with host Neil Cavuto — but got his wires crossed in the process and thought he was talking with Bret Baier .

Cavuto was questioning Cantor over his going “out on a limb” to endorse Mitt Romney. “I’ll tell you this Bret,” said Cantor. “Mitt Romney is the only candidate in the race…who has put forward a pro-growth plan to get this economy back on track!”

Cavuto took the error in stride, letting the Congressman know that he was, in fact, Neil Cavuto at the end of the broadcast.

“Eric Cantor, I know you talk to a lot of people. You called me Bret. That’s ok,” Cavuto acknowledged.

“Oh Neil, I’m sorry!” Cantor apologized.

“No you talk to Brett, and then call him Neil,” said Cavuto “It will drive him nuts. He has an ego the size of the Chrysler Building!”
