Fox’s Beckel, Dem Sen. Agree: Democrats Got an ‘Ass-Whooping’

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin and Fox News’ Bob Beckel used the same language today to describe what happened to the Democrats last night: they got an ass-whooping.

Well, at least they’re not sugarcoating it.

Manchin actually said the words “this is a real ass-whoopin'” in an interview with The Washington Post, in which he vented his frustrations with Senate Democratic leadership and practically begged Harry Reid to let them actually get stuff done. He said, “I think that people felt that the Democrats didn’t work, did not reach out, basically played politics all the way through.”

Beckel was similarly candid about how poorly the Democrats did on The Five today. Eric Bolling was talking about how the media span the GOP’s big night into a negative and threw rain on the victory parade.

He told Beckel that the media is acting like “crybabies.” And Beckel said people need to own up to what happened:

“You can’t look at it any other way than we got our asses whooped. It’s as simple as that. We’re gonna whoop their ass the next time around.”
