Glenn Beck on AZ Memorial: Obama Truly Was the President of the United States of America
Fox New Insider ^ | 1/13/2011 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 01/15/2011 9:36:44 AM PST by VictoryGal

Hear what else Glenn Beck had to say about last night’s Arizona shooting memorial service, in which the president delivered a speech that Beck called “out-of-the-park American”:

I know many of you will disagree with this opinion. And let me be clear: I oppose Obama unreservedly on his socialist policies. But unlike the left, I look on substance and not personalities. For example, if a legislator advocates for strong enforcement of the borders, it's a good move regardless of whether there is an R or a D after their name. Ditto helping the military in the theatre of war and at home. And I oppose Peter King's gun stance while I approve of nearly every everything else on his agenda. Labels aren't important to me. Actions are.

So if this president delivers a good speech that honors the slain and the heroes that ran into harm's way to save their fellow Americans, I (and Glenn Beck, apparently) feel like it's appropriate to give credit where credit is due despite how fiercely I oppose Obama's legislation.

Contrast this with the automatic hateful knee-jerks of the left who baselessly tie the heinous shooting to Sarah and (most absurd of all) Glenn Beck himself.

Like I say, I know many of you will disagree with my (and Beck's) opinion here. Hopefully not to the point of being zotted :-). I feel like we are strong enough to debate this amongst ourselves. And believe you me I will still be actively involved in making sure the new Congress sticks to the job they were elected by US to do... bring this country back to its sane roots.

God bless you all and God bless America.

So, I guess to be Presidential you have to pass out campaign t-shirts and have a cheering crowd at a memorial service?

Prince Waleed got to him too?

The most memorable line of his speech has turned out to be a bold faced lie. Giffords did not open here eyes for the first time on Wednesday.

Heck No! I haven't heard Obama's speech but if it was good - so what? He was just meeting minimal duties of being President.

No it just shows Fox and Beck are RINOs and Saudi Prince Al Waleed is the largest shareholder in Fox.

Beck is a fool as Obam’s gang has been has been all over the smears of Palin et al. Amazing how people are easily brainwashed by TV. I dumped TV over a year ago because it is all pro-Obama including Fox. Wake up and smell the coffee. TV is now ALL about propaganda and manipulation.

Obama is destroying the country - rapidly.

Beck has an admitted history of alcoholism and had a porn addition. He has issues plus he is a pal of O’Reilly another stooge for his boos Al Waleed.

Beck was wrong. Obama was “truly” the Campaigner-in-Chief, and out of place in a memorial service. He should have saved it for the campaign trail.

Look. All Obama did on Wednesday was to read what the TOTUS told him.

And he did it very well.

Apart from that - Beck and the rest of the toadies at Fox can KMA.

It was still an embarassing scene. Hooting and yelping college students is not appropriate for a memorial.

Bingo. It was a Democrat party funeral rally that mocked the murders of 6 people. TV shirts and pamphlets? Anyone wonder why on the same day about a year ago - Beck, O'Reilly, Medved, Hewitt, Ingraham, Coulter, Boortz and a few others came out and smeared birthers? Prince Al Waleed aka Saudi Arabia wants to protect his investment in his puppet.

He could remain "above the fray" as such because his minions performed their duties and performed them perfectly; presenting him with an opportunity to capture a bit of the old magic--the promise of the "post-partisan healer" that was promised in the campaign while still working to warp America into something it should not be.

In other words, "Mission Accomplished".

So Glenn got played...happens to the best of us.

The lastest insult to our intelligence is the admins “call to civility”. A call for civility after being so uncivil and a call that too many will interpret as a need to keep quiet or else be misunderstood or accused. How convenient.

This tactic is an old manipulative instigating abusers tool. Cause holy h@ll, then get quiet after inflicting severe damage and then call on the better angels of your victim (guilt trip). Fox news fell for it big time.

It’s not going to work...not this time. This time it’s gone too far. Taking over every square inch of what was once the peoples economy and creating so much Federal legislation that even our own body cavities (see health care takeover) do not belong to us any longer is going too far.

On top of it all, they hold a rally and call it a memorial...how scummy can you get. Note to money grubbing political hacks and career urinalists...this is not a game to the average person. Go rally and campaign at another trusting child’s memorial and see if “works to your advantage” ( flippin bottom feeding politicians &*^%$#).

Hell no we won’t “calm down”, “be quiet” or “let up” until every last page of draconian unconstitutional legislation the Feds passed in the last two years is thrown out to the trash.

After watching the speech I puzzled over what he said. He didn’t say anything but a bunch of words strung together. Somewhere towards the end he did mention the people being memorialized, I think.

George W. Bush, the last eligible person to hold the office of POTUS, makes me completely comfortable. As for the usurper who currently occupies our White House, despite never having released any of his records from birth through college, I was disgusted by the pep rally speech that communist gave. The first funeral I've heard of with commemorative t-shirts is not something to praise.

Count me as one who disagrees. Zero could simply have admitted his own complicity in setting the political tone in the United States. That would have been Presidential. That would have been the mark of a leader, who was willing to humble himself in front of the nation.

Never mind that the political tone of the national is a provable non-sequitur to the Tucson shootings, and thus should never have been a topic of conversation in the first place. Never mind that the atmosphere at the ‘memorial’ service was second only to the infamous Wellstone ‘funeral’.

And Beck fell for it. What a disappointing moment.

He probably did this in order to prove that conservatives aren’t haters...which is pointless.

You are trying to make a fine distinction between opposing the policy and opposing the man himself.

Make no mistake. I, and many like me, not only oppose the policies, but the very fiber and essence of the man(?) who pretends to the Presidency.

This “thing” that happened in Arizona was nothing more or less than a crafted stage show, no different than any of the other phony bits of politicking he’s pulled off.

If Beck, or you for that matter, can’t see that, then you truly do not understand the nature of this conflict.

This is not a polite political disagreement. It’s a battle for the soul of the nation. There is no compromise, and no kudos for the enemy, no matter how glib his speechwriter may make him appear.

I was looking at a video of Obama's speech at the Ft. Hood memorial.

I'm surprised more people didn't praise it so highly as this one.

It was pretty much the same, (except there was no need for the President to ask the audience to calm down).

Can you tell me what Obama meant when he said that we as a nation must “sharpen our instincts for empathy”?

Is this the drivel that passes off for a great speech? Beck is a recovering alcoholic and sometimes the elevator doesn’t quite go up to the top. In order to show “moderation” when under attack, these “self-taught” scholars lapse into utter foolishness.

Glenn doesn’t “get played”, but he is a good company man. Perhaps Fox has been told by their Saudi owners to help Barry get reelected. Perhaps Fox is there to “play” us, by pretending to be a conservative news outlet.

This most recent democrat political rally was a memorial sevice only in the sense that the 2002 Paul Wellstone Carnival and Pep Rally was a memorial service.

We have come to expect anything the democrats are involved in will be over the top, out of control and in the poorest taste imaginable.

They have not failed us this time.

I have seen this most recent thinly disguised democrat pep rally described as a:

Any of those terms is a more honest descriptor of what took place at the University of Arizona in Tucson on January, 12.
