Rep. Allen West and Fox News' Bob Beckel Fail to Communicate - Yahoo! News
COMMENTARY | Fox News pundit Bob Beckel has a political problem, and his name is Rep. Allen West of Florida.
Beckel appeared on Fox News this morning angrily protesting West's exhortation that certain members of the Democratic Party should take their "message" and "get the hell out of the United States of America."
That's what happens when you express feelings rather than calculated political statements. In politics, one must leave candor at home.
Beckel had been previously chided on the Fox panel program "The Five" for showing disrespect to the retired Iraq war veteran turned congressman. Beckel stubbornly refused to address West by his military or civilian title as a representative of Florida.
