Are You A “Becker?”
Elective Decisions ^ | 02/22/10 | Chris Davis

Posted on 02/22/2010 1:04:12 PM PST by writer33

Do you feel the incessant need to blame Republicans for all the evil in the world? Do you breakdown into fits of crocodile tears? Do you constantly say that America must be unified to defeat Democrats when we’re already unified against the liberal agenda? Do you feel that a third party will solve all of America’s ills? If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, then you’re likely a “Becker.”

What productive things? I don’t see any productive things yet? Hopefully, they will stand up to Obama and not lose their “way” again. But IMO, if they do stand up, it can be credited to people like Beck and the Tea Party crowd who set a fire under their feet, and let them know the “same old same old” won’t win them reelection.

Nothing wrong with his logic if you think in terms of longterm strategy of allowing Carter to win vs. the momentary satisfaction of a Ford victory.

Conservatives are better off with Obama than they would have been with McCain; I have no doubt about that.

”I’m so done with Glenn Beck.”

The evidence certainly suggests otherwise. How about another Beck thread?

Beck Derangement Syndrome.....not pretty.

>>He has never mentioned Buckley

Well, he doesn’t have to.

He’s ripping of Buckley’s television style totally including the stammer and hesitations. Imitation is the best form of flattery and its his call, but to someone who loved the intellectual heft and debating of Firing Line, style needs substance.

He speaks to the American people while writer33 only entertains FReepers all in a lame attempt to deify Rush Limbaugh.

I absolutely agree with that, but continuing on this crusade isn't accomplishing anything right now. He should be pointing out the productive things now.

I'd say that it has accomplished quite a bit....from Van Jones....To Acorn....To now, exposing RINOS. In the year since Beck went ON the air we have seen Republican victories in NJ, VA, and MA

And he played a bigger role in that, by exposing corruption, by exposing this administration, than ANYTHING Michael Steele and the NRSC has done.

But keep looking for that Birth Certificate, by the time you find it, The Republicans will hold majorities in both houses of congress....THANKS to people like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Jim Demint (for standing up for Honduras), and the 40 republicans who held their ground on health care.

We can only HOPE that they remember what got them there.

The American people don’t want an Obama or McCain

The party leadership gave us Obama, from the DNC side, and McCain from the GOP side. So, yes, both parties need to do some house-cleaning.

The present state of arousal on the part of the rank and file is no thanks to GOP leadership. The present state of disarray in the Obamist ranks is, again, no thanks to GOP leadership who until the Tea Uprising were quite prepared to "reach across the aisle" and bi-partisan themselves into irrelevancy.

It is thanks in no small part to a very small handful of talk show hosts and an out-of-work governor and the Tea folk themselves throwing a public fit that the GOP has gotten its spine back from the pawn shop and is ready to do battle.

Conservative Fox News personality Beck also said that he may have voted for Hillary Clinton over McCain had Clinton been the Democratic nominee in 2008.

I don't see what that has to do at all with you inventing a ridiculous term like "Becker" and insulting every Freeper who criticizes Republican liberalism.

By the way, if I remember correctly, Ann Coulter said the same thing. Do you hate her too?

And the only reason they’re doing that is due to public sentiment. And who is raising the public sentiment and informing them of what’s going on...folks like Beck. So to criticize him is counterproductive IMO.

I think you’re seriously overreaching if you think Buckley was the only cariacture of the Harvard intellectual snob (not saying Buckley was). I for one disagree with you that Beck is imitating Buckley. I (and everyone else) have seen this character in numerous movies, tv shows, etc.

Yawn. Loser post. Anyone that’s listened to Beck for even a little while sees the idiocy in this argument. Yes, we do need to get away from the 2 party way of thinking that you either vote for the donkey or the elephant, no matter who the canidate is. McCain is a great example; NOT the canidate I wanted, even with the “R” by his name. Personally, I voted for Sarah, not John. As a Pennsylvanian, I also voted for Hillary in the primary as I much preferred the idea of her rather than Barry as President.

Beck rips off Buckley’s style on his tv show.

Its funny for a while and then I change the channel.

If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, then you’re likely a “Becker.”

Here's more ways to tell:

Would you applaud if you heard that Beck and O’Reilly try to have Mark Levin banned from Fox? When Beck does nothing for the troops but is cashing in on his tour while Hannity, who is relentless attacked, spends a fortune promoting our troops during Freedom Concerts? When Beck uses information straight out of Levin's book, or from WND, or from Brietbart, without giving credit? If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, then you’re likely a “Becker.” :)

Heck, I RAN as a Third Party Candidate in a race the GOP didn't even bother putting anyone on the ticket for.

"Leaning" towards another Party when your chosen Party is still in bed with entirely too many Rat/Progressive positions is not necessarily a dumb move either.

Beck is an innovator who has clarified what is truly good. He is often described as difficult to work with, but his expertise and experience overcomes any drawbacks associated with his pomposity.

Um, we are talking about Jeff Beck, right?

AHe slams the illness that has weaseled and infected both parties:

Beck is right. We didn't get to this god awful mess we are in just from the democrats... They suck more than we do is not a good selling point. If we were not infected with non conservative republicans, this nation would be in better shape to weather recessions and there would not be 1/2 of this nation that thinks they are owed a government handout at the expense of the other half.

A little over a year ago I was reading on FR many complaints about the sorry choice we had as a candidate in McCain. He is the cancer that Beck was talking about.

No actually you went personal first when you began posting “Becker!” as an invective. You’re a small minded child who is trying to play with the big boys.

But cheer up; you’re lame blog probably reaches as many people as the “Great One’s” radio show.

Wrong about what?

I see Beck and I see a cheap ripoff artist aping the Great Buckley. It’s an impression, an opinion, rather subjective, you know. Obviously you don’t agree. Does that make you wrong?

That wouldn’t be half bad in itself but Buckley’s poop had more intellectual heft than Beck’s tirades, never mind the quality of the discussions on Firing Line compared to that silly blackboard.

How so? I don't think any non-communist American is better off with Obama. America would have survived a McCain presidency. It very well may not survive a Zero one.
