About Bob Beckel
As for the day, Bob Beckel net worth is estimated at $10 million. He has earned this fortune working as a political operative, political pundit and lobbyist. Although he has a considerable number of admirers among the liberal Americans and few people doubt his professional expertise, there are reasons to believe that in the nearest future Bob Beckel net worthwill be stagnating or even start dropping. In short, this is due to his “personal issues”. It is no secret that the star had problems with addictions in the past and it seems like they are getting a grip on him again. In addition, it seems like Bob is having some drug-unrelated health issues. These obstacles to his further career will be discussed in the following paragraphs, but for starters let’s take a look at his early life and career.
Bob was born into a rather extraordinary family. His father was an exceptionally educated man, the author of a book Workshops for the World: The United Nations Family of Agencies. Meanwhile Bob’s brother grew up to be a character actor. Throughout his career Graham Becker (this is his name) has featured on variety of television series and made a several major roles: for example, he portrayed Jack Fisk on Battlestar Galactica and Hal Sanders on Heroes. However, Graham’s fortune never even came close to Bob Beckel net worth.
Turning back to our main “hero”, Bob started his career in politics while still studying at Wagner College in Staten Island. Back then he worked on Robert F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign. Although his role was not particularly important, while campaigning for Kennedy Bob has accumulated the experience and contacts that were crucial in his further career. A real breakthrough in Beckel’s professional career came up in 1977 as he became the youngest deputy assistant Secretary of State (or to be more particular, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Congressional Relations). The job that brought Bob further prominence was for Walter Mondale’s: he was the manager of his 1984 presidential campaign. The same year Bob and some of his colleagues founded a firm Bob Beckel & Associates. The essence of this business was accurately pinpointed by Robert G. Kaiser: “a pioneering ‘grass roots’ lobbying firm whose specialty was building support for policy ideas—or creating the appearance of it—around the country. This was the art form that came to be known as “Astroturf” lobbying, since the grass-roots sentiments being expressed were not entirely natural.”
Unfortunately, as Bob Beckel net worth increased so did the stress he had to endure. This led to a severe alcohol and cocaine addiction. The millionaire has been free from all the poisons for a while, but a couple of month ago it was announced that he entered the rehab to fight with prescription drugs addiction. This led to Bob’s termination from the Fox News network.
