To me Mr. Beckel was not a Liberal. The reason I say that is he told the TRUTH and NO LIBERAL does that. He will be missed. I wish they would have said more than he was found dead. I pray that GOD grant his loved ones Mercy and Grace in this time of Loss.

I feel the same way Jesse. Bob was different and he was straight forward whether you liked it or not. He was a Liberal Donald Trump.
