    He can be explosive to say the least. He called
    Jessie Watters a pissant yesterday or the
    day before I think.

    I was glad to see him back on the Five but it
    was just a matter of time...

    Have it on my DVR, thought I caught a bit of the clip. But couldn't hear what he said.

    Good riddance.

    I don't watch The Five and certainly don't agree with Beckel's politics but I always found him down to earth, entertaining and likeable. In our anal, politically correct culture, we'll probably never find out what he really said. I'm sure it was nothing compared to the joke that ended the career of Earl Butz back in the 70's.

    I agree. I was happy to see Beckel back on Fox.

    You and Old Dog. I had heard rumors of "one, possibly two" viewers who liked Bob. I thought it was just show business hype....But, its true!!
