Election emotions still running high

Former Ron Paul aide to boycott Democrats


This is a rush transcript from "The Five," November 9, 2012. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: So, post-election, blogger Eric Dondero says he's going to boycott Democrats. He writes, quote, "All family and friends who I know to be Democrats are hereby dead to me. I vow never to speak to them for rest of my life. They deserve nothing less than hatred and utter contempt."

An overreaction, me thinks, but at least he's not pretending that a group hug will make it better. After all, you can't really fight a tough fight and pretend everything you fought for is up for grabs.

Yes. Obama won. But our principles are still our principles. Even liberals adopt our principles when they run for office.

It's also hard to take the president seriously as Mr. Heal the World. After all the crud he handed to Romney. Mitt was smeared as an uncaring rich guy pushing granny off a cliff.

The president and the machine he heads should be called on that stuff. But don't worry, they won't.

But the group hug plan may not be feasible anymore. America's about to find out what it's like to live in New York City. Coast to coast, get ready for regulations on everything, a permanent welfare state, government control of most sectors of the economy, Bob. A climate hostile to business, a fractured society, obsessed with race and gender.

New York and L.A. are about to extend their suburbs until they meet in the middle. No more flyover country. We're one big Ivy League campus now. And Julia, she is class president.

I say dig a hole to China, but I think they're already here. Do you think if we give them amnesty, they'll vote Republican?

OK --

BOB BECKEL, CO-HOST: Get it on out, boy.

GUTFELD: Yes. Andrea, anyone -- are you planning on boycotting Bob?


ANDREA TANTAROS, CO-HOST: Unfortunately I'm not in a position where he's sitting right next to me where I can boycott Bob. But I'm way ahead of Dondero.

Eric Dondero, I'm months ahead of you, buddy. I already started ignoring Democrats and not talking to them. I find myself getting very angry when I stand in line. And I hear people talking about how great Obama is with the t-shirts. I find myself mumbling slurs under my breath, like you, ahh, ugh, arghh.

BECKEL: Oh, come on.

TANTAROS: But I'm not going to cut them off -- I blame them and guess what? I'm not going to cut them fully, Greg, because I know that I'm right. In a couple of years, I'm going to want to go back and say things to them, like, this is all your fault. And when a young kid comes for a job, I'm going to say, who did you vote for? Obama? This is your fault. You should have a job.


TANTAROS: I'm sore loser.

BECKEL: I'm going to say, don't blame me, I voted for Romney. OK?

GUTFELD: You did vote for Romney, didn't you?

BECKEL: No, I didn't. You have to take into account that only 35 percent of the 50 percent were Democrats. Therefore, you are talking about independents and some Republicans as well. You're going to boycott them?


BECKEL: Oh, you are? OK, you're going to find out, you're going to go up --

TANTAROS: That's my first question. When people say, hi, this is my friend so-and-so. I'm going to say, hi, so-and-so, who did you vote for?

GUILFOYLE: Well, you know, people say that's very personally --

BECKEL: That's sort of welcoming comment.

GUTFELD: All right. You are a nice person, Kimberly, or you pretend to be. We're not really sure, because we don't spend much time outside the office after that accident.

You have -- you were married to liberal --

GUILFOYLE: Oh, please.

BECKEL: Two of them!


GUTFELD: Just one. Maybe the second one was a liberal. You know what?


BECKEL: I thought so.

GUTFELD: So, I mean --


GUTFELD: I mean, you're not in that kind of world where you cannot live -- you can't discuss things. You're not --

GUILFOYLE: They call me salt.


GUILFOYLE: Yes. Look, I lived amongst them. I studied them, like Jane Goodall.

BECKEL: Oh, we've studied them.


DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: They love glazed donuts.

GUTFELD: She went too far, though. She married them. See? She was -- anyway.

TANTAROS: She also divorced them for a reason, right, Kimberly?

GUILFOYLE: I hope they're not watching.

Very nice gentlemen. Yes, our politics were different. But I would like to say that at least one of them was not so bad when it came to political issues.

BECKEL: Which one?

GUILFOYLE: Mystery. Tune in next week.

BECKEL: The male species?

GUTFELD: All right, Dana, you told me in green room that if you run to a Democrat, you're going to stab them in the face with a pencil.

PERINO: That's my style.

GUTFELD: Yes, it is.

PERINO: I notice today, you know, when you lose an election, you lose so badly, and you were walking down the street and you overhear the people next to you like talking about how great Obama is, you just kind of hang your head and keep your head down and keep walking. And let them have the moment.

TANTAROS: Secretly flip them the bird.

BECKEL: On our Fox party here on election night, I could not wait to get out, because everybody was looking for somebody to attack. And I was the only gorilla --

GUTFELD: You mean our secret party?



BECKEL: That was secret party. You didn't tell anybody about that, did you? Oh, man.

GUTFELD: Let's go around the table one more time on this. How about it, huh?

All right. We're going to stop.
