Liberal TV Host Explodes With Fury, Seemingly Admits There Was a Benghazi Cover-Up: ‘So What?!’
http://www.theblaze.com ^ | May 2, 2014 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 05/02/2014 7:59:59 PM PDT by Whenifhow

Bob Beckel, the liberal co-host of “The Five,” exploded with fury during a tense discussion about newly-released emails that reveal an apparent attempt by the White House to portray the 2012 Benghazi attacks as a protest gone awry to protect President Barack Obama’s political career.

(Fox News (Fox News Beckel admitted that “someone, somewhere” likely agreed that it would be in the best interests of the president politically to change the Benghazi talking points and control the narrative. However, the liberal host then went completely off-topic, bringing up reports of Nigerian girls being forced to marry Islamic extremists and instances of “friendly fire.”

When his fellow co-host, Eric Bolling, tried to get him back on topic, Beckel lost it.

“Let me finish!” Beckel said, pounding his fists on the table. “Let me finish by saying with what I think Hillary Clinton says — we know Islamic radicals killed these people, what difference does it make anymore?”

“Because they covered it up, Bob,” Bolling shot back.

“So what?!” Beckel screamed. “Every administration covers things up.”

Beckel also said “who cares” when asked if the Obama administration should be able to cover up Benghazi details just because it makes the president look bad. He also claimed that Americans are not still interested in finding out what happened in Benghazi.

Bob cracks once in a while. When he does, it’s priceless!

Yep, it WAS a cover-up Bob.

Remember us Right Wing Tea Party crazies, we said it years ago.

Yes he did! Eric and the rest were concerned!

From what I saw the producers clamped down on BB and he was fairly tame for the rest of the show.

Juan will probably be in a lot next week

i guess when a series of generals, admirals, and CIA operatives come out and state benghazi happened because we switched sides and started funneling weapons to AQ... the word ‘treason’ starts gaining momentum

the flailing of arms and panic would be the typical reaction from those realizing they are culpable ... and potentially part of the conspiracy

Watching a lefty lose his s***: It’s a lot like watching a brat explode in a supermarket line because his Mom won’t buy him a candy bar, but mortifying for him because he’s a grown man and supposed to know better.

I think Bob is unhappy about something totally unrelated and it is why he has been exploding about once a week lately. I see Bob has put back on a bunch of weight, after having lost some up to a couple of months ago. I think he’s not happy about it and therefore more touchy. Take a look, he’s put quite a few pounds back on.

So what if our AMBASSADOR was killed and this Admin covered it up?
My god, he was an Ambassador and Beckel represents the WH by arguing
that it doesn't matter.

Beckel is a dime store Shock Jock looking for attention to make his
pathetic anti-American life meaningful. Just have a Heart attack, punk!

Yes, Beckel has admitted he talks to the WH and takes their talking points.

Well, and it’s not just a cover-up. The sat back and let the Ambassador and the guys who came to his defense be killed, and did nothing. They had hours to act, and did nothing.

The Ambassador was raped and murdered, and they sat back and ignored it all, lied about it, and still pretend that nothing happened.

Watergate was peanuts in comparison.

“WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?”

That is actually a question that now needs to be answered. Suggested answers: the continuation of the Obama administration; and the remaining moral underpinnings of the Democrat party.

Remember when Clinton marched his entire cabinet out on the lawn to swear on camera that the president wasn’t a liar?
Then shortly thereafter that dirty blue dress made its untimely appearance. So then we not only had a lying CICh but an entire West Wing of perjuring hacks.
Liberalism is a mental disease. Democrats are habitual liars. And this “transparent administration” is the worst to ever disgrace 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Strong words, sure, but wait’til all the e-mails are finally pried and leaked from these reprobates.

Before, I didn’t think the Benghazi story could sink Obama and Hillary (and, by extensive, the Democrats in the senate,) but with the email, it appears to be the administration should seriously be imploding at this point. I expect the Republicans to retake the Senate and the White House.

HOWEVER, we have to make sure we don’t nominate Mittens or Jeb Bush. Ted Cruz is our man. Even if Mittens and Jeb win (how could they lose?), it be a loss for us as these men represent, as Nyquist puts it, only the “alternative left.” We need anti-communists and cold warriors now. And that man is Cruz.

I understand your sentiment. There’s two guys on Fox that I don’t necessarily like. I still think they should remain. One is Juan Williams, and one is this crusty old bastard.

If you look at the talking heads of the Left, you soon realize these two are probably less objectionable than many others they cold have on.

Both will on occasion concede. Get yourself a Lanny Davis or James Carville type, and forget about that.

Sorry, Bob, when a President allows 41 Americans to be under attack for up to eight hours, and does NOTHING, then blames it on a video, it makes a HUGE difference.

Four Americans, including an Ambassador is not acceptable collateral damage for a political campaign.

We have had enough of the lies.

All of the lies.

Where was the CIC while our people were being murdered? Why was he not on top of the situation? What was he doing otherwise?

The American people have a right to know the answers to these questions.

The running is over.

Or should be, but for this lily-livered Congress.
