Sarah Palin slaps around Bob Beckel. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin appeared on Fox News Channels The Five on Friday where she gave a wide ranging interview about the Supreme Court decision on health care on Thursday as well as her objections to health care reform legislation. Towards the end of the interview, Palin challenged ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos to call out President Barack Obama for lying to him in an interview where he famously claimed that the individual mandate in health care reform was not a tax.

Co-host Eric Bolling asked Palin to weigh in on the broadly varying conservative reaction to the Supreme Courts verdict on health care reform.
I can see both sides of this, said Palin. She said that there are conservatives who are understandably disappointed that the court did not overturn the health care law, while others might be saying right on, Supreme Court, thank you for concluding that this is a tax despite what Obama had promised that its not a tax.
The glass being half full now tells us, good, Palin continued. You put it back in our hands, the peoples hands. She said that this tax will be either enacted or rescinded by Congress she recommended that after the Congress returns from recess that they should begin the process of rescinding that tax in order to defund health care reform.
Kimberly Guilfoyle asked if Palin was saying that she thought this was a boon to Republicans electoral hopes. Palin agreed and enumerated a number of reasons why the bill was deceptively passed to begin with. She contends that the individual mandate being a tax was just one of many deceptions.
Governor, the deception; does that include death panels there that were never real that you said were in the bill, interjected co-host Bob Beckel.
I saw it and she beat Beckel and Stephy like the rented mules they are and always will be.
Any day Boob Beckel gets knocked around is a good day for me. And having Sarah Palin do the knocking around makes it doubly sweet.
Too bad you didn’t run, Sarah...what might have been!
fox news has placed robert beckel on the [PUP-physically unable to perform] list after Sarah Palin beat him to a pulp. Beckel’s return time is undetermined.
I think Sarah made Beckel poop his pants..it was AWESOME! Beckel is your typical liberal idiot. First he says “There are no death panels” but the second Sarah came back with actual FACTS proving there are indeed death panels, what did Beckel do, what your typical liberal does, make some idiotic joke about himself, because he knew he was just shown to be an idiot.
After that he was speechless!
Shutting up Beckel is an accomplishment in itself LOL..half the time I can never tell if he’s sober or not
Darn , I wish Sarah was running. The mainstream media destroyed Sarah and took away our destiny and her destiny. I hate the media.
Same here, she mopped the floor with Beckel and left him jaw dropped speechless.
Beckel makes that show unwatchable for more than a few minutes to me. I can’t understand why they don’t just tell him to STFU. Instead they make jokes about his lying and name-calling. Even after Palin handed him his head, he came back later with more snotty name-calling that nobody called him on. He’s the FOX version of Ed Schultz, a loud, fat, drunk, lying bully.
It’s a wonder he didn’t start throwing out F-Bombs and crapping all over the set. Beckel is pure lib jack-ass all the way.
There is one thing for sure, the Palin of today is not the same Palin of interviews from 2008.
She is a quick learner and now gives no quarter, she is very informed as to national and world topics, and when talking her voice has improved dramatically. She would totally destroy Perky Katie and her LSM ilk today.
But here is what is going to happen....even though Sarah PROVED to him that there indeed are Death Panels, he will still say that there are not any the next time that the subject is brought up in a discussion.
Call me too logical, but if I was on one of those talking heads discussion panels and Beckel said it again, I would slam the *$#@ing crap out of him and remind him of what Sarah proved to him and them go farther and ask him if he is still drinking or has some form of dementia and if not, why is he still repeating the lies.
I would focus on that and make him look like a fool again and then look into the camera and say that anyone else that hears him say that again should make him look stupid.
The problem that I have with many of these talks shows is that they are too civil and let the left get away with sooooo much.
I am in the ZERO tolerance zone and will stay there until we get this country under control.
Anyone have a problem with that? Don’t think so.
Deny, deny, deny...Lie, lie lie.
Then Beckel will mug for the camera and the others will say how much they still love him!
SOP for the left!
We need to come up with some kind of handicapping system where a pundit's accuracy is flashed on the screen when they are talking about a certain topic. Not necessarily whether the thing they are saying NOW is correct, but their track record on the topic.
Beckel is a back street thug that Fox dressed up.
I saw this and it really was fabulous but I’ll take Beckel any day over Juan Williams. Beckel knows he’s a clown but Juan is deadly serious about his opinions! He calls everything he believes as “facts”!!!!
I think Bob also said that he wasn’t aware of the “tanning bed tax” while he’s claimed to be an expert on all aspects of the bill. THAT was jaw dropping! That was the first tax that went into effect!
Can’t shame liberals sadly.
