What Happened To Bob Beckel?!?
If anyone saw yesterday's (July 24) "The Five" on the Fox News Channel, can you explain Mr Beckel's sudden attack of civility? He almost heaped seemingly genuine, sincere, heartfelt praise on President George W. Bush and Laura Bush for their activities in AIDS prevention and control in various third-world ratholes.
[See a President Bush interview on the subject here ]
Most recently, President and Mrs Bush spent their 4th of July week in Africa repairing, remodeling a cervical cancer center. After being accused of modeling his post-presidency after any or some of his predicessors, Karen Hughes--a long-time Bush presidential aide and confidant--said:
"He is very much charting his own course and it's a continuation of things he really cares about going back to his term as Governor. He really believes in the biblical imperative 'To whom much is given, much is expected.'"
So--in conclusion--I for one, thank Bob Beckel for TEMPORARILY burying his 'commie-lib hatchet' and giving praise where praise is due, regardless of political affiliation!
So.... Thanks, Bob!!
