Posted on 03/10/2012 2:53:35 PM PST by VU4G10
Its time for the GOP presidential race to come to a close, Glenn Beck told Fox News Bill OReilly
I think its time that it ends, Beck said during an interview broadcast Friday on The OReilly Factor. Im a supporter of Rick Santorum but, you know, I think were at the end here, or very near the end. If you do the math, its darn near mathematically impossible here unless we go all the way down to the wire for anybody but Romney to take it. We have got to come together and start to put together a strategy not only for the White House but also for the Senate and for the House

I thought Beck was a Santo guy??? Oh that’s right, he’s what thousands of posters have said on FR, he’s in disguise as a stealth RomBot.
If its Romney, I just hope conservatives can put up a real fight for the house and senate. I know I want to get rid of Debbie Stabenow at least as badly as I want to get rid of the emperor.
I saw this coming a mile away.
Beck pretends to support someone with no chance besides his fellow Mormon. Then will pretend to give up and accept Romney... when Romney was who he wanted all along.
Beck, you have zero credibility. Go back to planet Kolob.
Whatever Glenn. Get a job.
Beck was always a Mitt guy, he’s a Mormon and he has an R next to his name.
That’s all it took for Beck.
Nevermind that if both Newt and Rick stay in the race until the end, Mitt has no chance at winning outright but instead the matter has to be settled at a convention.
Nevermind Mitt’s EXTREMELY Progressive Record, including:
1. Support for Gay Adoption
2. Support for Gay Marriage
3. Support for Adoption
4. Implemented a Socialist Healthcare Program called RomneyCare replete with $50 abortions and an Individual Mandate.
5. Support for Global Warming
6. Support TARP.
7. Support for the Brady Bill
8. Implemented an Assault Weapons Ban for MA when the Federal Ban was allowed to expire.
I still think, sometines, Beck may be a few skivvies short of a full seabag, but there’s no hope at all for 0’pinhead!
THe problem for Beck, you VU4G10, the GOP-E, all the other Mitt Supporters, and Mitt himself, is the slimy, ugly, Left-wing, Extremist Progressive background of Romney.
Romney will get slaughtered in the General election if he is the nominee.
All of the sordid details of his past which have so far not been aired out for everyone to see, will then begin to be brought out after he is the Nominee by Obama and his minions in the MSM.
They can’t wait for this, they are salivating for this opportunity.
They will pound him into the ground with his own record and by the time the General Election comes around, the slaugher of Mitt Romney and the GOP will make 2008 look like a bellweather year for the GOP.
Beck as always is a supporter of Romney.
Hey Beck!!! They haven’t even gotten to Texas yet, you asshat! Sit back and STFU or I’ll give you a Texas sized butt-whooping, prancy boy!!!
so says the King of Stupid - Glen Beck...
If Romney is unable to get a majority of delegates by June, than perhaps a compromise candidate can be found at the convention. I say that the candidates should avoid taking pot-shots at each other (and Romney is the worst offender of all in that catagory) and othewise let’s see what the process leads to.
I held-out hope for Beck, for a long time, even after he “jumped the shark”. But no more. He’s been in stealth mode, for quite a while, I’m finally realizing.
Here’s 8 more for “S-F-B mittens”:
I’m sure you can guess what S_F_B means...
Uhhh, make that *6 more*... typo police!
beck jumped the shark some time back.NEXT!
Lets see...where do I begin with Beck. The first warning shot was when he said the tea party must be racist for voting for Newt. The second warning shot was when he took Perrys book and ripped the foreward out that Newt wrote. The third was when he put up pics of Santorum, Romney and Ron Paul and said “One of these will be our next president. Oh I know. There is one more named Gingrich but why put him in the mix?” Then we had all the hit pieces he put up on the blaze to bash Newt and he brought Romney supporter Ann Coulter on his show to bash Newt. He claims to be great friends with Santorum and to be for him but now he tells Santorum it is time to quit when Santorum is doing great. What a great buddy, ha? He interviewed Sarah Palin and said she is very guarded and he was not sure it should be her for president. He said Romney, Santorum, Bachmann or Ron Paul are ok but Newt is a progressive and he does not like him. Romney is a liberal progressive and he is ok. hmmmm. He has been so gung ho for Israel but it is fine if Ron Paul takes the presidency because he believes in small govt. and we may have an economic crash. He is a strong believer in destroying Newt and yet he brings a lot of religious people on his program to talk about love. I try to glean what I can from his show about Soros, etc..but I have learned something is not quite right here.
Im a supporter of Rick Santorum but . . .”
Sure you are, Beck. Sure you are. You’re in the tank for Bishop Romney, and you always have been. Anything else would be unthinkable.
Why, if you didn’t support him in every way possible, he might take away your planet.
When I used to lurk here, I would visit the old thread for Beck's Fox show, and I never thought it was possible that Beck would come out for Romney. I thought everyone who predicted it was wrong. Well, I was 100% wrong and they were completely on target, and I have no problem admitting it.
The other day there was an article on the Blaze titled "Is Romney the new Reagan?" LOL....
Apparently most FReepers have reading comprehension issues. If Romney wins the nomination most republicans will back him. I wonder how loudly they’ll screech when their chosen candidates endorse Romney if he wins the nomination? Rush, Sarah Palin, Allen West, Marco Rubio etc will all back Romney. That includes Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.
Beck is simply expressing a simple fact and despite not liking that fact only a moron can deny it’s existence.
I really think Beck used Sarah Palin and aggressively associated himself with her for a while, just for the publicity and perhaps the conservative “cred.”
For a while I was still listening to parts of his radio show to see what garbage would come out of his mouth, but the last straw for me was one day when he was raging against Newt, calling him names, and then, bam, switched over to the syrupy, self-righteous voice and started talking about how darkness was coming and we all needed to be the light. I said out loud, “You hypocritical jerk, you can’t preach to anybody”, and turned him off for good.
Personally, I want this to go down to the wire. That will give our candidates extra time to talk about 0’s record, and give him and his camp less time to focus on our nominee.
He lost me when he started talking about the Indians being the lost tribe of Israel. Right out of the Joseph Smith teachings, his cult worship is too much to ignore.
Pray for America
This might be bad form and if so I apologize, but I just posted an article by Sean Trende that does some detailed analysis (fairly I think) of the likely delegate count through the rest of the season.
Here is the link:
Here is where Newt and the campaign are right now this minute. I don’t see Newt deviating. It looks like a long read, but it isn’t and there is a vid that follows of Newt on Greta talking about this. It is a good gestalt, and a good gameset for Newt’s supporters’ heads... we are just going to have to block out all the media and repubs saying time for newt to go... and just keep marching.
the only disagreement responses I got were that Paul would probably not join the conservatives.
Two very smart Freepers, VinL and RitaOK, posted these two posts last night on a different thread, and I think they sum up exactly where things are right now. And during that thread Newt was on Greta, and said the three conservatives had to short Romney at the convention thats the path to victory.
Newt cant beat Romney one on one- neither can Rick. Romney has too much money and institutional power.
Rick and Newt only have a chance. They they stay in, and dont campaign against each other. Instead, each attacks Romney and the Gop-e for having fixed this GOP primary- and they threaten to bolt the party.
The battle is grassroots against the establishment and Rick and Newt have to make that argument together.
Newt cant beat Romney one on one- neither can Rick. Romney has too much money and institutional power.
Vin, Im glad you lay the truth out there. It is a fact.
I have known this also for weeks, but clung to hope, which led to prayer, and that somehow this cycle was so very different that the truly daunting events and the present facts could be reversed, that Republican voters would wake up and see the machine fix in place.
What is left is to pray that ALL three candidates can mess with Romney long enough to GET US TO CONVENTION, so that we will have earned a hearing of our complaints there, a seat at the table, and be in a position to offer up the delegate war as our bono fidis!
THE DELEGATES, OF ALL THREE, ARE OUR FINAL AND ONLY WEAPON
TO HAVE A VOICE OF OPPOSITION TO THE RINOS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
Alone, none of these candidates against Romney have a prayer, and We The People, the instance one drops out, are silenced and dismissed, left with nothing but theater.
The Establishment is in no real panic and that is quite telling, but for Barbara Bush, of course. But the Establishment knows exactly how this ends because we have failed to unite in time to overwhelm.
Santorum will NEVER be the nominee, one on one.
Newt will NEVER be the nominee, one on one, maybe period.
Ron Paul will certainly NEVER be the nominee by any math.
IMHO, Rick and Newt are unlikely to allign because Rick is so naieve, but as you said, to have a prayer they MUST together get radical and present a united front against Romney at all costs, for us to have a prayer to change the party apparatus, agenda and defeatism of RINO leadership.
I am certain Newt knows this and has tried with smoke signals to confer with Santorum, but Rick is small picture and mostly for Rick, and runs on just enough grandiosity and battle drama to blind him to any need for unity. This is not a sign of wisdom.
We can not be demoralized but instead must push for a united front, and in a serious rebellion against the Establishment, rather than push for one to get out.
Now, the truth is out there.
Just saw Newt on GRETA, and I am pretty sure he said the same thing we are discussing. I would have to catch it on a rewind, but he is definitly convention bound for a purpose, and it includes hoping to short Romney on delegates.
The odds for change rise or fall with holding delegates from Romney.
The man invented how to score big. He knows.
Just hope we dont fail to get the message.
I’m on the fence about how long it takes and I’m not real thrilled with the idea of a deadlocked convention. I’m a Santorum guy so I want it to go on as long as it takes to nominate him but it ain’t gonna be easy for the 2nd and 3rd place candidates to do.
we still have the bulk of the northeast states to go and those are pretty much all a lock for Romney.
I salute all the Freepers everywhere who said this would happen. At first, I thought they were all incredibly cynical, but I kept reading all the clues and all the bits pointing that way, and changed my mind. It turns out you all were right... I salute you!! It is still a little jarring to see it come to pass, though. Wow. Everybody plays the conservatives, everybody.
I listened to Beck bash Newt while pretending to support Santorum until I couldn’t stand the hypocrisy anymore.
It’s ironic that Beck is supposedly the guy exposing the Progressives, but as soon as one runs for POTUS from the Mormom Church, that is fine with Glen.
Beck is an idiot and I don’t think his fellow mormon will drop out.
I can't. what does it mean?
Sh!t For Brains.
While I respect much of what Glen has done, he is first and foremost a Mormon and because he is completley deceived spiritually, the cult colors everything he says and does. It comes as no surprise he now bends his knees in submission to future Mormon “god” Mit.
“I know I want to get rid of Debbie Stabenow at least as badly as I want to get rid of the emperor.”
Add in that commie whore Granholm. That bitch stole a high five figure amount from me and billions of dollars more from other good and productive Michiganders and gave it to her thieving fascist thugs in Detroit. I want to see granholm dragged back to Michigan in chains and stand trial for her theft and treason. I hear the commie whore is hiding with rats in Bezerkley, California. That’s perfect. It’s near the 1stMarDiv in Camp Pendleton. I can make a call to arrange chasers.
Spot on. They’re calling Beck an idiot for doing what their candidate or their favorite conservative radio host will be doing just weeks from now.
Nobody will convince me any of our candidates will be as bad as Obama, and it is not going to make me enemies with those who are moving to Romney at this point in the process. . I voted last Saturday in the Washington caucus for somebody maybe most here will approve of, but come November I dont give a GD who our candidate is, I will be voting for him, to send that disrespectful America hating A-hole back to Chicago
That is the Prime Directive.
The real idiots are those saying they are not voting in November if Romney is the nominee.
“While I respect much of what Glen has done, he is first and foremost a Mormon and because he is completley deceived spiritually, the cult colors everything he says and does. It comes as no surprise he now bends his knees in submission to future Mormon god Mit”
Ain’t that the truth. Sad but true
I have been listening to Beck regularly since the day Tony Snow left radio to work in the White House (and sporadically prior to that).
I’m a fan and have been a staunch defender of his.
Here’s the problem I have: he trashed Newt utterly while ignoring Romney (or at the very least he did not come even close to using the magnifying glass on Romney to the extent that he did with Newt). He finally started to criticize Romney this week in a detailed way (but still not to the extent that he trashed Newt).
There was a problem with consistency here that was quite obvious to any regular listener.
Beck used to say — even very recently — that he was not the guy to listen to when it came to politics; that Rush and Hannity were the guys to listen to when it came to politics.
I agree with him and I wish he had not focused so much attention on the GOP primary.
He is at his best when he and his people are digging in on Soros, Tides, Obama, Van Jones, ACORN, Piven, and OWS ties. That’s his strength and I wish he’d stay there.
Follow-up (for the record):
I will be voting for whomever goes up against Obama, including Romney.
I’ll have a tough time bucking up and voting for Romney myself but Beck is telling a simple truth and its ridiculous to deny the fact. I’ll leave that kind of group think to the climatologists.
He’s not endorsing Romney he’s just pointing out that its going to be near impossible for anyone else to win the nomination and that if we want to win the white house we’ll back him when it happens.
The way I see it, a conservative house and senate could make any of our candidates into a fine president.
Anyone can see the math, but that doesn’t mean that the fight against the lying liberal fraud Romney should end. The guy sucks, and he will destroy America with more leftist judges. The JUDICIARY should be the main focus of Rick’s campaign now. Bob
I would agree that he did spend much more time attacking Newt than he did Santorum or Romney, when clearly all of them are flawed. Its not hard to pull a quote from any of them, that can’t be catagorized as “progressive”, but he did single out Newt for some reason.
But Newt can’t blame Beck for being on the bottom. Newt is on the bottom because of Newt. Newt needs to understand is that, while he hates Romney (as the majority of Freepers do here), most people do not. Unless they are political junkies like the rest of us, the general public views Romney with the same objective principles they judge the other candidates. BUT there are a TON of Americans who viscerally hate Obama. He needs to tap into that again. They want to vote for a guy that wants to take it to Obama. Not a guy that wants to in-fight with someone in their party that they aren’t all hopped up about. At this moment in time Obama is the one destroying their country and lives, Romney is not...
I do not disagree with one thing you said in that post — including the fact that Newt can’t blame Beck for being at the bottom.
“I am a Conservative who doesn’t happen to be a Republican,” Beck often says on air. On his show, Beck addresses many issues, mostly from a conservative viewpoint. He does not identify himself as a Republican.”
Then may I suggest to Beck that he gets his nose out of the republcan party’s business. He is a confessed independent so what makes him think he can call any shots.
This "idiot" doesn't care what you think - Mitt Romney will not get my vote in November. Standing by my principles is far more important to me than what your opinion of me might be.
I’ve never trusted Beck even back in his heyday here on FR.
