Orlando Examiner: Fox News: Obama 'answers to the Quran first and to the Constitution second'

-By Robert Sobel

September 17, 2012- Fox News has once again appealed to the radical base of the Republican party, this time bringing back the "Obama is a Muslim" rhetoric that has gone on since the 2008 election.

After a low-budget, anti-Islamic film went viral on the internet last week, protesters took to the streets across the Middle East, bringing foreign policy to the front page. The U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, was killed outside the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi along with three other Americans. The response from both sides of the political spectrum came fast and furious, but it was Mitt Romney who pointed his finger in blame at President Obama before he had all the facts about the situation. Many prominent conservative voices quickly criticized Romney, but Fox News was there to cushion his fall.

Fox News followed Romney's lead, blaming President Obama for the attacks in Libya and the protests in the Middle East. During Monday's edition of "The Five", the panel was discussing the anti-Islamic film, "The Innocence of Muslims," and the filmmaker's criminal history. In response to the filmmaker's recent interview with federal authorities, co-host Eric Bolling took it upon himself to state that President Obama puts the Quran ahead of the U.S. Constitution.

"America changed at that moment. To use what is being called a flimsy ploy to bring this guy in for questioning proves that the Obama administration, through all this appeasement and apologizing, answers to the Quran first and to the Constitution second.”

Co-host Bob Beckel quickly fired back at Boling, calling his comments "outrageous" and Bolling later tried to walk back his statement.
