“My friend and spiritual brother, Bob Beckel, has passed into the presence of the Lord he loved. We did so many things together and I hope we modeled what two people of different political persuasions can be like when they love one another. For ten years we wrote the “Common Ground” column for USA Today and a book by that title. The name of his ironically titled autobiography is “I Should Be Dead.” It is a highly readable book about a difficult life that was dramatically changed in the last 15 years. I will see you soon Bob. You are loved. ” syndicated columnist Cal Thomas said on Monday evening.
In May 2017, Fox News terminated ‘The Five’ host, Bob Beckel for making an ‘insensitive remark to an African-American employee.’
Beckel worked at the State Department during the Carter Administration and served as the campaign manager for Walter Mondale’s 1984 presidential campaign.
