To the author of that juvenile screed I say, get over yourself. Beck is a historian and many people are receiving a fabulous education about the evil progressives from him. He answers many questions that have been on our minds for decades. I for one truly appreciate the information he has provided. I don't care if he's a Mormon, and I personally like the Pillsbury Doughboy, and if he's so upsetting to you, then just don't watch him.

Beck has bought into the Ron Paul agenda hook line and

If only you were right!!! You have been listening to a different Glenn Beck. The one I listened to this morning was jinoistic on the Mosque issue. He despises Ron Paul and it shows. Glenn Beck is out for Glenn Beck. Period.

The world of the dyed-in-the-wool Free Republic conservative continues to shrink.

This past weekend I was listening to a financial show and the host brought up Beck and his recent discussion of something called the “hindenberg omen”.

Beck was talking about in this apocalypse like tone saying how it’s correctly predicted every market crash since 1985. He also made it sound as if it was his big idea.

What he left out was that it has incorrectly predicted lots of other crashes that never happened.

He never correctly attributed it to the two people that came up with it.

There were a number of other things the host pointed out as well. This has made me question Beck from now on.

I do sometimes like his show, but his Libertarian dogma rises to the surface way too much for me to be a regular viewer.

A couple of weeks ago I heard him say “The wrong thing to do is to put the Republicans back in power”. My jaw dropped. The two things I do like about the show is Founders Friday's because I like American history, and the cute dark haired girl that does the Wall Street Journal update at the end of each show.

Beck is watched by Millions of woman. He has taught my wife and many of her liberal friends about this countries history. I do not know why they like him but they do hate rush and his condescending manor.

For someone that quotes Thomas Jefferson quite a bit, I was suprised GB came out in favor of a 2% national VAT tax.

Not to mention the whole butt-sex marriage thing.

In my opinion, Beck likes his job and is willing to pander to his bosses to keep the paychecks coming.

I'm quite sure that he did NOT mean to leave the RATs in power! The Republicans "as is" have pretty much morphed into RAT lite anyway.

I used to like Beck but he is all over the place. He became pals with O”reilly when he went to Fox and I no longer trust him. O’Reilly is a weasel and is not a conservative. They both made fun of birthers for their Saudi shareholder bosses at Fox.

Unless you were familiar with Beck’s radio program all through the first decade of 2000, you would not be surprised with the way it is today. He is an entertainer, first and foremost.

Thanks. I will alert the media...they will be so thrilled about your announcement.

Much ado about nothing.

Same for my wife. I don’t watch him except occasionally. But she does whenever she has a day off. She’s learned a lot, and for that I appreciate what he’s doing. Because she’s not the only one. But, I’m well grounded in American History and don’t need it. But I can say he’s right on on what he’s teaching...

I basically agree with you. I used to listen to conservative talk radio all the time. Now I get maybe half an hour a week.

Two reasons: REPETITIVE. And some of them are too angry.

I am not a stupid person and I don’t need the same story told a hundred times over and over again with little change in so much as the nuance.

And I often feel like they are trying to whip me up into some sort of anger all the time. Anger has its place but I don’t care to walk around furious all day. It doesn’t accomplish anything.

Give me the news, give me the opinions, give me some decent humor, give me some solutions, make it intelligent and entertaining.

Rush is probably still my favorite, although he is not as funny as he once was. I’d like Dennis Miller if he was obtainable around here.

We are going to need all the help we can get. Don’t divide, unify.

Yup.... I keep telling people we will NEVER agree 100% on what everyone thinks...even those that think alike. My motto is... are the ideals, morals and outcome the same? Yup... We want freedom, smaller government and the truth. You ain't gonna' get that anywhere else but Fox, some online news sites, talk radio and of course... God! We are divided as it is, we don't need to be divided amongst ourselves!!

Funny. I found the original post to be ignorant and idiotic.
