In his final blog post on the Fox Business Network website, Cody Willard called his show, "Happy Hour," a "dream job," and said that he will continue to fight what he dubbed the "Republican/Democrat regime" in Washington:
As of today, I'm closing up my office here entirely. I'll be in and around NYC and running my businesses, writing, investing and what not and will, I'm sure, come on FBN or FNC as a panelist/guest/whatever. I'll be seeing you guys around.
"Happy Hour" ended on Friday after over two-and-a-half years on the air. Willard, who will leave the network, called the show "an unbelievable opportunity and experience....a dream job in many ways." He recounted some of his favorite guests--Neil Patrick Harris, Gene Simmons, Ron Paul and Derek Jeter, among others--and debates.
But Willard also said he had a not-so-favorite part of the job:
Coming in and fighting the Republican/Democrat Regime and the socialist policies and propaganda and corporate welfare they stand for every single day for the last 1000 days. I never wanted to take on Goldman Sachs and their cronies like Lil Timmy Geithner and Bush and Palin and Pelosi and Obama...I didn't choose to the war that they made me fight when they ratcheted up their redistribution policies and propaganda to enable those policies and then explicitly sent trillions of dollars of welfare to bankers and their shareholders and began nationalizing private industries.
He said he would "obviously continue to fight" against the policies he disagreed with, but that he was "looking forward to not doing it in new ways."
"Happy Hour" ended Friday after over two-and-a-half years on the air. It has been replaced by "The Willis Report," a more consumer-oriented show hosted by FBN anchor Gerri Willis. The first episode of "The Willis Report" airs Monday afternoon.
