Skip to comments.Glenn Beck on AZ Memorial: Obama Truly Was the President of the United States of America
Posted on 01/15/2011 9:36:44 AM PST by VictoryGal
Hear what else Glenn Beck had to say about last nights Arizona shooting memorial service, in which the president delivered a speech that Beck called out-of-the-park American:

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?
Beck can make you want to puke at times. And he scored big with this rump kissing.
I can not listen to our POTUS in a neutral manner. He does not make me feel comfortable.
I’m sorry, but sometimes Glenn Beck is just too much for his own good. Read the piece from the American Thinker posted earlier about Chauncy Gardner.
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.
Disgraceful opine on the politicization of a tragedy.
Which part did he like? The free T-shirts or the free political rally?
Does anything drive the left crazier than hearing their guy praised by the right?
Beck is deliciously diabolical, IMHO.
Our standard fpr Zer0 have sunken so low that for
him to do his job with some decency is applauded.
It was still an embarassing scene. Hooting and yelping college students is not appropriate for a memorial.
Cheap political opportunism.
But I am cynical. “together we strive”
One big problem. Obama lies and Beck knows it. Praising liars doesn’t quite cut it.
The University of Arizona was responsible for the T-shirts and the cheering crowd.
Let’s give blame where blame is due.
Beck is criticized a lot, because he does well in the 25-54 demo.
Gee, I wonder why I don’t listen to Beck anymore.
He’s not my president..... Waiting for 2013 for that upgrade.
He’s still not constitutionally qualified. He’s only kept in office by a twightlight-zone style consensus that the emperor does indeed have clothes.
Clap and cheer everybody!!! It's time for who's casket am I standing on now?? We have cash and prizes!!
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.
oh please. Someone in the WH asked the US for this. This was totally stage managed.
We should all send Beck some ChapStik to treat is lips from all the ass-kissing.
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.
But — but — but the Obamessiah can raise folks from the dead. Look what he’s done to raise up all the formerly dead conservatives.
Really? Do you have the source for this? I’d like to see it.
Turning a memorial into a Democrat Funerally is not Presidential. Using a memorial service to kick off your next Presidential campaign, complete with slogan, is not Presidential.
What was Beck listening to ???
He probably did this in order to prove that conservatives aren’t haters...which is pointless.
Leftists will always hate us regardless of what we do. Anyone who isn’t a totalitarian narcissistic commie is a “hater a bigot an idiot and liar” to them.
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.
Work just one aspect of the logistics, how long would it take you to have a shipping container load of T-shirts screen printed, packed and delivered and then draped across 14,000 seats?
It's just the Columbo in me.
did he cry too....
I loathe when he cries.
OK, now we can discuss.
I would not say beck is of the right, beck is of beck. That is real close to MJ’s never, never, land.
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.
“So Glenn got played...happens to the best of us.”
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.
did you notice the [Applause] sign on the Jumbotron?
It would help if the mental disorder known as liberalism allowed them to remember it...but not.
They will forget about it immediately afterwards and say that “Glenn Beck is responsible for this attack and was merely trying to deflect criticism from himself and he attacked Obama again!”
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.
What was Beck listening to ??? Why I'm certain he thought he was listening to God almighty. He most certainly cried heartily afterward.
The other thing I’m thinking is why Obama didn’t go to Ft. Hood after the shooting for a memorial. Bush did.
