Bob Beckel says Bombshell is heading Michele Obama's way. (Vanity)
Fox & FRiends ^ | 05/03/08 | mware

Posted on 06/03/2008 5:02:24 AM PDT by mware

If any of you had the opportunity to watch Fox & FRiends this morning, you probably saw Bob Beckel being interviewed about todays political events.

Towards the end of the interview he announced to the Fox & FRiends hosts that he has been told by numerous people,(enough and in a way that convinced him) that a bombshell will be dropping tomorrow about Michele Obama.

The Friends turned white and asked what it might be...was it worse than a college thesis? Bob said—Oh yes, in a BIG way. He said that the Repubs were behind it and it was dumb because it meant that Mrs. Clinton would be the nominee.

So the die is cast, IMHO Hillary will suspend her campaign within the next 24 hours and then the bomb will drop, leaving the Republics to take the blame.

Beckel said that this will make Hillary the candidate. Whatever is on that tape (if it is a tape)it must be a beaut.

It looks like Beckel has confirmed lots of the speculation here at FR over the last few days.

Someone get out the popcorn machine.

Sorry that is a bad link. Fox & FRiends has not posted any article yet. I can’t image they would hold on to it now that Beckel has put the story into play.

Even in my most cynical state, I don't agree with Beckel on this one. The die has been cast.

I don’t watch Fox News very often so haven’t seen Bekel in awhile. Has he been in the Obama camp? I’d have thought of him as a Clinton supporter.

Obama could have had a nice, plush lifelong career in the Senate. I guess his ego got the best of him. I mean, with all these skeletons in the Obama family, why would he be so arrogant, i.e., psychotic, to think he could actually win the Presidency in the first place?

If he wins the nomination but loses the general election this November, my guess is that voters throw him out of office in 2010 and he goes back to being a college professor.

He’s bet the farm on being President and I don’t think it’s going to work out for him.

If Hillary gets away with making the VRWC take the blame for this latest move of hers, she deserves to be President, or Empress, or something.

He was a Clinton supporter early on but he may have switched to Obama within the past several months. Can’t say for sure. Perhaps someone here has been following him on FNC more closely...

C’mon people, Beckel is a Clinton water carrier so what would you expect from him? Why would the Rep be blamed, as he claims? Obama is obviously easier to beat then would be Shrillary so why would they shoot themselves in the foot so obviously?

If Repubs were behind this, I don’t think it would have come out now. I think clinton is behind it. Perhaps she sent it to Repubs to hide her manipulations.

Beckel is a liar and an idiot. it makes no sense for Republicans to drop something this big at this time. Why not wait for it until it is of use to them?

It will not matter what it is, Obama is and will be the nominee. I ,at this point, cannot see it any other way. There would be rioting in the street and the Democratic Party would be destroyed. That would be fine with me, but I just do not see it happening. Whatever it is, Obama will counter and the sheeple will believe him.

Beckel is a moron. If the Rep had such a bombshell to drop why would they waste it on getting the candidate they can most easily beat out of the race in favor of one they would have more difficulty with?

If in fact the tape exists at all it will be aired in the form of an “October surprise” when it will do the most damage.

Beckel said, during the broadcast, that his contract with FoxNews included a clause that he would not publicly take a side as between Hillary! and Obama. This clause is supposed to make him an "objective commentator." He also said he voted for one or the other, but won't disclose which.

The hosts at Fox'n'Friends are feigning ignorance. They know darn well what the rumor mill has been churning. Tease it up for viewership!

“He said that the Repubs were behind it and it was dumb because it meant that Mrs. Clinton would be the nominee.”

How in the wide, wide world of sports are they going to blame the Repubs?! The powers that be in this party don’t have enough intestinal fortitude to blow out a candle, much less confront a Demonrat with TRUTH. With so much angst b/tw Hilliary and “O-bomb-a”, Beckel is dreaming, hoping, praying that they’ll(Republicans)be blamed.

Dr. I agree with you.

This is pure Clinton.

Suspend but do not exit the race. Wait for the story to break, blame the Republicans and take the nomination in Denver.

IMO, there is NOT A THING that Michelle “Hussein’s-Wife” Obama could do to make her husband unelectable. The Liberals and their racist slaves would accept a murdering, philandering, bi-sexual over a not-quite-Conservative any day.

Just more twisted crap. I saw an explanation on FR yesterday, though I can’t find it now. Michele O was taped yelling about Bush (I think). And she kept saying stuff like “Why’d he go to war? Why’d he lie about WMD? Why’d he get us into this mess?” And the troublemakers are simply spreading it around that when she was saying “Why’d he,” she was saying “Whitey.” As in “Whitey lie to us!”

Exactly. But waiting until October is too late. Release it within 72 hours after Obama receives the nomination.

There is no way that the Dems can throw Obama under the bus at this stage no matter what his wife might say on the tape, if it exists. Blacks are their most loyal constituency. "Stealing" the nomination from the black guy will have far reaching consequences not only for this election but for many more to come. The Dems want to be the home party for all minorities who will be the majority by 2050. Far better to lose this election than jeopardze their future prospects.

For now, the Dems are between a Barack and a hard place.

Pleeeeeaaase!

Bekel is a rigid liberal partisan (duh), and I don’t trust him.

BUT...Obama has kept Michelle completely out of sight since the Repub ad about “first time proud”, and perhaps they knew something more was out there.

This sounds TOO good for this cynic. I’m not holding my breath, but I’ll be watching.

Beckel promised Fox News that he would not announce who he was supporting until after the last primary.

His tone over the last few months have swung towards both candidates.

He was really ticked that Obama was not fully vetted when the Wright story broke.

After thinking more about this, I've come to the same conclusion. He's acting as point man, giving blame to the GOP for what Clinton is going to unleash. OTOH, the rumor mill has also had the tape in the possession of the GOP. But I can't see them being so politically naive as to release it now. August would be far better.

-- It will not matter what it is, Obama is and will be the nominee. --

Obama's lead is slim to none, and his momentum is negative. It won't take much to push the race in Hillary!'s favor.

Just my opinion, of course. The Democrats are stupid enough to prop Obama up this far -- they need something that will rattle the public if they are to shift their preference.

Because Hillary is behind it all. She has just managed to make it look like the work of the Republicans. Remember, she's a Klinton.

I don’t like Beckel and don’t trust him, however he is the first democrat to bring this up as far as I know. I think it gives the story more credibilty, but this could just be wishful thinking on my part. Something needs to save us from the Manchurian Candidate.

This should be fun, look at the timing, Hilde drops out today or early tomorrow, the Obamao will be in Minneapolis speaking at the facility that “we” will hold our National Convention at, and out comes Whiteygate on the day he tries to usurp the RNC’s Convention Facility....

Niice...

Beckel is a opportunist, no more, no less, I really cannot listen to the man because he almost NEVER says a single thing that is interesting to hear....

RUMORED transcript:

Michelle Obama, “Once again, the white man keeps us down, what’s up with Whitey, Why’d he attack Iraq, Why’d he let Katrina happen, Why’d he leave millions of children behind. This is the legacy the white man gives us.”

If the tape exists, and if that really is a transcript, then substituting "Why'd he" doesn't go very far. You've got "the white man keeps us down". This isn't about George W. Bush and it's not merely asking "Why'd he" do things.

This is about racial hate speech.

Maybe...then again maybe all the morning talk shows would give her kudos for being so "courageous" and "spiritual" that she wears a burka and no one could joke about her 'cause then it would be religious persecution.
