Gun Control: The Sheer idiocy of Rahm Emanuel and his "Gun Offender Registry"

Bob Beckel comes clean on why he is a democrat -- Unbelievable

Bob Beckel, co host of Fox’s “The Five” is not a stupid man …

Early in his career, he joined the U.S. Department of State and became the youngest deputy assistant secretary of state for the Carter administration.Beckel was the campaign manager for Walter Mondale's 1984 presidential campaign. During that campaign he became known as the man who effectively wrapped the Wendy's slogan "Where's the Beef?" around Gary Hart, Mondale's opponent for the Democratic nomination.

Beckel, a recovering alcoholic, has spoken openly about his past addictions to drugs and alcohol, admitting in July 2011 on The Five: "I'm a recovering addict and cocaine was my drug of choice." In 2002, Beckel was the victim of an extortion attempt by a prostitute he had utilized. <Source>

Until you hear his explanation of why he is a democrat …

In a conversation with Bill O’Reilly, Beckel said: “When I was a kid, my father took me to a polling booth and said ‘Son, you see that Democratic lever. You pull it and all good things will happen. Women, Jobs. Cars. You pull that Republican lever, you’re gonna die.’” 

And, Beckel said it with a straight face without a hint of sarcasm.

Bottom line …

There you have it. Beckel is a Kennedy-style liberal (a moderate Republican today) whose values are unrealistically rooted in the 60’s and 70’s – and probably does not see the violent shift to the left as socialists and communists infiltrated the democrat party. Culminating in the election of the Manchurian Candidate about whose life and associations are little known (as judged by contemporary history of Presidential backgrounds.)
