He tried to cloak it in tongue tangles, but it’s the worst job ever (via Townhall):

Bob Beckel isn’t made for TV, period. He’s way too hateful and it’s come out on-air too many times.

UPDATE: Beckel also said the Sikh temple shooter was a ‘right-winger’.

    I’ve stopped watching The 5 faithfully just because of Bob. He’s literally THAT annoying. And Greg’s exquisite humor, Kimberly’s lovely legs and upbeat attitude, Andrea’s beauty and wisdom, Dana’s rapier-like wit and insight and all the other excellent people on the show are wonderful… but it’s just about not enough to counter Bob’s uncouth behavior and dirty mouth. He is offensive and awful.

    Scoop nailed it… he doesn’t belong on T.V. – period.

    • marketcomp

      The problem is that he uses this language that degrades any argument. I mean he is incapable of debating based on the merits of the argument or the facts. Liberals do this all the time, when they don’t a substance they just start name calling. Beckal should have been thrown under the bus a long time ago.

        That’s why I have dramatically curtailed (almost to zero) my FOX watching time. Lefties and their shrill, uneducated, loudmouth opinions are not welcome in my household. I have heard five lifetimes worth of opinions from the shrieking Left. Since they have always failed to convince me of the worthiness of their opinions, I am done with them! I only want to hear reasoned discussions of how to fix the mountains of problems which they have created. Not whom they want to blame from a decade ago for THEIR mess! That’s why I love Mark Levin .. he also has almost zero tolerance for the Lefties. The only time is when he gives them enough rope to choke themselves upon.

        • desperatellyinneedoffactsonly

          We would like to hear more reporting of when Harry Reed and Palossi tell their filthy lies to the LIBERAL Media. Why not point out the facts of how poorly their states that they themselves represent are doing right now, for instance the state of CA has the largest city to file bankruptcy in US history and the state of Nevada have the highest forclosure rates in the Nation as well as the highest unemployment numbers in the Nation. This tells us the people of these states have definitely lost focus largly due to the leadership of people like Harry Reed and Nancy Palossi. Why doesn’t anyone simply point out the facts…????

    • pdxlady

      I second that!

      He ruins the entire show. I didn’t watch it here, as I saw it yesterday and could not believe it. He has such a foul mouth, he can’t restrain himself from talking like this.

      Fox is losing ratings (falling)every week due to these type pieces of human waste being part of their programing. FOX saids they are fair and balanced, what? sounds more like the Obama News Network when I tune in.
      When I want to hear Beckels view all I need do is listen to Obama speak, so no thank you, my barf bag is full.

      • Osama0bama

        Agreed. FOX states that they are moving to the center (i.e. “the Left”) so that they can “increase their audience.” What they are doing is losing the Conservative audience which have made them the leader among news networks. Ain’t going to happen, FOX! Many are like me .. we have drastically reduced our viewing and instead get our news from blogs and the web. I refuse to watch anything that Beckel, Tamara Holder, Juan Williams, or any show his band of FOX lefties is on. I also can’t stand to watch Bill “0bama is a Nice Guy” O’Reilly, “One Note” Hannity, or Greta. Yep .. I’m pretty much divorced from FOX.

      FOX’s stated “move to the center” (i.e. “to the LEFT”) has forced me to watch FAR less FOX. Congrats, FOX! If I wanted to hear the opinions of the shrieking, uninformed Left, I’d turn over to pMSNBS! Since I NEVER turn over to pMSNBS (I have even removed them from my custom channels list in the guide), I think we can all guess how much I value the new FOX definition of “fair and balanced!” I will not watch the FIVE (no matter how hot the broads on that show are, or how funny Gutfeld is) until Jabba-the-Hut is removed from the network.

There is a liberal woman, and I can’t remember her name because my memory won’t serve me, that would be 100 times better than him. She is articulate, intelligent, liberal, but not a kool aid drinking moron like Bob. Dang… If I could remember her name… But basically ANYONE is better than Bob!

    I’ve pretty much given up on FOX News because of Beckel, Williams, Rivera and Powers. But Beckel by far is the most annoying POS liberal on TV. Whoever is in charge over at FOX must not be too bright as many others I know have quit watching FOX because of Beckel. You want truth in news (and don’t want to watch or listen to liberal lying idiots) come here to Right Scoop and other conservative blogs. ;)

      …and don’t forget the always hysterical Tamara Holder! Beckel is such a loose cannon, Fox cannot afford to keep him.

      • Nukeman60

        They’ve got to keep Tamara. It’s my time to sit down and laugh every time I see her attempt to go up against Michelle Malkin. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything more hilarious, and it happens every time. She actually thinks she’s on a par with Malkin and the argument is over before the segment starts.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Hills/100001768887781 Michael Hills

    I judge what is in a persons heart by their character and composure. All I see in Beckel is a chubby weak little boy that’s to afraid to go outside and play with the “normal” kids because he’s afraid he’ll get hurt.
    I can’t help but contrast Charles Krauthammer with Bob and wonder what happened to him when he was a child.

  • carmtom13

    I say leave the left wing progressive liberal on the show, it shows people just what they all stand for and what they really are. Andrea, Eric, Kimberly and Greg let him have it. I love it when they prove him wrong and he sits there with his mouth shut. Beckel thinks he can go against Eric and win the debate, wrong!!

  • Dukehoopsfan

    That lineup with Beckel is just barely a cut above “the view”. Find something else for Gutfeld, the other guy, and Dana to do and send the guy away along with Jerry Rivers and Juan Williams.

    • http://tinyurl.com/wwsotu Whitewolf2009

      But I like Gutfeld… he’s probably the only reason I watch the Five…

      • Dukehoopsfan

        Sorry I was not clear. I like Gutfeld.

    • Nukeman60

      Gutfeld and Perino would make a good duo for a show. Tantaros and Guilfoyle would make good segment reporters. Bolling should stay on Fox business, as he’s good at that but poor at hosting a show like The Five. As to Williams and Beckel, You can send them both to MSNBC. It would be a great fit for Schultz and Sharpton – call it The Foul (err, I mean The Four. Slip of the finger, lol).

      Fox News also cut nearly all comments from it’s news and opinion websites! FFS! In this important election year!?!!! WTF???? (What the Fox! :-) )

      • http://twitter.com/mridaho mridaho

        I think they cut the comments out because the left hijacked them on almost every story and they weren’t even worth reading. I gave up commenting there a long time ago.

        • http://tinyurl.com/wwsotu Whitewolf2009

          But there were *tons* of Conservatives that posted and gave the lie to any Libtard attempt to hijack a thread. We shone the light of truth and facts! They spun lies and c**p! I was a regular there until they pulled comments and I had many friends there that fought the good fight to ensure truth and fact trumped Libtard lies!

          Then one day… Fox decided our voices didn’t matter anymore… FoxNation was especially to blame… Calling on all to comment and then cutting comments!

          Then Fox News itself did it… And we knew… We knew it was a policy decision… Not a hack-attack or something… We had to guess because Fox News never bothered to respect it’s long time contributes by issuing a “new policy” statement or anything that kind… NO…. They just left us hanging in the wind… until we figured out Fox had undercut the exchange of ideas…

          We, the loyalists, were thrown to the wolves…

  • http://www.facebook.com/VaBhodi Darrell Griffin

    I have been a fan of the Five since it began. I’ve reached a point where I will not be “tolerant” of Bob anymore. For the longest time, I took it with a grain of salt, because it’s who liberals are. Loud-mouth, factless, belligerent bullies.

    That said, if I watch a 5 PM EST cable news commentary show with my 6 YO daughter around supper time, I have a REASONABLE expectation of decency on the show.

    Couple this with the F Bomb he threw at a lady on Hannity, and it’s time for him to go.

  • sDee

    And this slug Hannity often calls a good friend?

    • http://tinyurl.com/wwsotu Whitewolf2009

      And Hannity has him on his show too… I mean… C’mon Hannity!!!!

    • Nukeman60

      Anybody that calls the likes of Bob Beckel and Alan Colmes their friends are not really conservative. They are merely ratings hounds looking for that TV boost. Sorry to say it about Hannity, but his ratings are more important to him than his philosophies. Not much there to be proud of.

      The same goes for the Bill Maher-loving Ann Coulter as well. I won’t listen to her anymore and when she comes on the air, I turn the station.

      • Joseph ewing

        Nonsense.

        Mary Matalin married James Carville, and she’s as Conservative (with a Capital C) as they come. Admittedly, I don’t understand the attraction, but love is blind. :)

        I have many liberal friends, and I LOVE tearing them new ones when political conversations come up. Doesn’t mean I don’t like them. I just think they’re misguided.

        If you’re only friends are Conservatives, you have missed opportunities to educate, and possible convert. Preaching to the Choir is easy.

        It frankly amazes me how many here want their politicians and commentators to be “Pure”.

        Jeez, how perfect are you?

        • Nukeman60

          Did she say she was friends with the likes of Bob Beckel and Alan Colmes? Carville is not the same cut as those two stooges. You missed the point completely, but then I’m not surprised.

  • Rocco11

    If Ailes doesn’t do something, I’m through with Fox.

  • Nukeman60

    This is Beckel’s M.O. He says these hateful, despicable things and then the next day he apologies for them. That puts them out there on the airwaves. When he says another despicable thing, the other co-hosts call him out on it and he just says, “well, I apologized for it already.”

    Guess what, Bob, if the apology isn’t genuine, it isn’t an apology. You can’t just use the word ‘apology’ as a campaign tactic. That was the way AirAmerica worked and look what happened to them. Perhaps, the same thing should happen to you.

    Enough with Beckel, already. He’s had his 15 minutes of fame, did his driveby shooting, and now it’s time for him to go to media gitmo. Buh bye.

  • MadMadJack

    I find it hard to believe that FOX has gone so far left since Obama took office. I’d really like to know exactly at what moment they decided to change their political stance? They used to be number one in Cable News by a large viewer percentage but I guess they decided being number one and telling the truth doesn’t go hand in hand. :( I also wonder how the other 4 on The Five can stand to be on the same room with Beckel???

    • johnos2112

      On that same theme it appears that Dick Morris has some pretty revealing data that is not surprising to me at all. It appears that red state are getting more red and blue states are moving in Romney’s direction. I am telling you that come November you will see an avalanche of voters like this country has never seen before. We are looking at a landslide defeat! Having said that I think Obama is gonna play this dangerous card IRAN!

      • RosiesSeeingRed

        I think so too — LANDSLIDE — although I talk to many on our side who are not nearly as confident as I am about that gut feeling. I occasionally “land” on FOX when flicking during commercials and last night I landed on Dick Morris’s account of his undisclosed polling source (I’m sure it’s the same one that has the liberals’ panties in a wad as well), and I thought maybe my gut feeling is not all that far off from reality!

        I believe this too, about a landslide for Romney. I’m not sure about Iran…haven’t given it a lot of thought, but I am fearful that he will declare martial law…as he has given himself the executive order to do so without congress. Scary dude!

    Look Bob Beckel is the dean of the Fox shills. He has refined his craft as a Democratic villain on Hannity. Much like the villains in pro wrestling, his job is to draw the ire of conservative watchers and to invoke the Dem party line. In many ways he becomes a parody of the mindless political party lemming. Bob’s counterpoint and crassness creates counterpoint and the sense of conflict that TV execs call “good TV.”

    this gas bag has a long history of using profanity on the air. when will fox fire this jerk?

    • Landscaper59

      He is their day-time token liberal. Fox is going down hill… I rarely watch anymore.

  • PChandler

    He doesn’t belong to this planet, period. He should have joined NASA’s Curiosity and stayed there.

    • kong1967

      Curiosity would have crashed with him on it.

    Yep they can say Romney is a tax cheat , which in their World is a plus, and pretty much anything they want about anyone, including children but they are shocked and outraged that Reince, fought back and called Harry what he is a dirty liar..whenever we do the same thing they are in disbelief..I guess we should do it more…

    Beckle is a skumbag and a liberal clown! His arguments are often lame, just like a school yard bully! Not sure why Fox didn’t fire him a few months back, when he cussed on Hannity! The bottomline is Beckle-the-specticle, is a loser and all he can do is calling others names. He should look in the mirror, and maybe he’ll see a fat, ugly, 80-year old with a toupe’ on his head!

    Beckel was alot more acceptable as a falling down drunk. Sobriety has ruined his personality to the point he is intolerable to rational people.

    Beckel played Football in school. I’m guessing Reince Priebus specialized in interpretative Dance!

    • B-Funk

      Interpretive dance! LOL /cry That is such a liberal invention. I was forced to watch a dance like that once. I’ve never been so embarrassed for someone else.

        “b-funk” was embarrassed?

        “I’ve never been so embarrassed for someone else.” <– that you felt this way speaks volumes b-funk. If you weren't dizzy with the cool aid you'd find the comments here excruciating b-funk.

      Rahm “Tiny Dancer” Emanuel was his ballet partner.

    This guy isn’t a real commentator any more. He plays more like an episode of Friends. I laugh, but mostly AT him.

    Yeah he meant to say it. Beckel i not smart enough to pull that off.

    The problem with Bob is that he’s an insecure Doof . . . . in fact, all liberals are insecure hence the need for government – nanny state beliefs. Bob can only throw inflammatory verbal “bombs” at people. No clues to any factual relevancy!! A total pompous wind-bag (I didn’t want to say ass bag)!

  • nibblesyble

    To use the words from my dear friend ABiC..’dregs’ fits quite nicely when speaking of Beckel.

  • Retired_Coach

    And I suppose that they keep him employed so that they can show just how ugly, spiteful and untruthful the left truly is.

  • Patriot49

    Ackkk… I do REALLY enjoy the show and watch it whenever I can. The FIVE individuals are a great mix of intelligence, talent, wit, background and experience. Bob occasionally blows me away with his kindness and soul shining through, but I think his many years as an abominable alcoholic and his liberal background have taken their toll. He DEFINITELY angers me much more often than interests, informs or amuses me.

    Bob’s a classic Lib – he can’t intelligently discuss a point without resorting to baseless name calling. But, that’s why the show works! Now, if they were to book Bob and Juan at this same time, I’m out of here folks! LOL

  • Charm4sure

    In some ways it is too bad Bob is on The Five. I’ve been wondering if the relationship between all of them isn’t wearing thin. I don’t watch it anymore. I’ve seen more of todays liberals than I ever wanted to see. If you can have a decent conversation with them it might be worthwhile, but I haven’t had that opportunity very often. Bob is a great example of a liberal and I think it is a good thing to show people the contrast between those that can disagree and have a conversation and those who can’t and become crude, rude, and biggoted. It is probably also useful for people to see those who have class, integrity, the ability to have a respectful conversation, and the ability to actually think and value thinking. When I watched The Five, I didn’t see Bob change a bit in his ability to discuss things he disagreed with without degenerating into cussing and name calling. He is the Democrat Party and too ugly acting for me to spend much time on. Another problem in talking to liberals is the gap in knowledge. Sometimes that gap is so huge there is no way to bridge it. There has to be some basic level of knowledge that you can start from. When the person you are talking to can only regurgitate dogma or can only think about their next spa treatment, the gap is humongous. For the most part Bob is a dogma regurgitator and when he gets outside that his behavior deteriorates

  • aZjimbo

    Why hasn’t this clown been fired at least 3X over. Just another reason not to watch Fox anymore.

  • bobemakk

    I thought Beckel added humor to the show, but he is hideous and has to learn to shut his filthy mouth.
