Some folks say thumbs up, some say thumbs down. Either way, today's "Squawk Box" guest host

Mario Gabelli

of Gabelli Funds has a whopping 80% of readers asking for a return appearance. Let your

squawk be heard every morning this week beginning at 8 a.m. EST!

As much as I like him, I am not interested in hearing about his political leanings. Whether he be pro-Clinton or anti-Clinton, his views of the markets are what I am looking for.

Forget about Holyfield, Mario is the real deal ... and he doesn't fix his matches either.

Gabelli was an arrogant, Yonkers stiff. Interested in bragging about his billions and his same old stinking cable investment. A real host loser! Boring, irrelevant. Dump him.

Would have been much better with Mark Haines there ... Ron Insana can't get the best out of anyone as he is too busy injecting his opinion.

Gary Lowman

A class act all the way around.

Jon Perez

Mario is larger than life! Only he should get some new material. Like me, he's trapped in a time warp.

Thomas Luddy

Mario understands the big picture and talks his positions. Ya gotta like that!

Joe Walsh

Another Louis Rukeyser Stock Convention stalwart. Valuation investor at top of his class. Man of his convictions with picking stocks. Undervalued stocks for the long term. Alas! Too few heed his insight.

Mario Gabelli is fine, we expect him to be bullish ... Ron Insana is the one you shouldn't bring back.

Here on the West Coast, it's a pleasure to wake up with Maria on my bedroom TV. Mario is OK too, but I prefer to watch him on my kitchen TV.

Dirk Hoek

Self serving.

Mario might be articulate, but why can't he pronounce AOL's name (what the heck is "American Online")? Derrr! Sounds like he's been listening to Louie Navellier with his "Abercrombie and Finch!"

Most value stock investors are bores. He's wonderfully alive and charming. I wish I had bought cable long ago, when he told us all to do so.
