Glenn Beck: The GOP Are ‘Full of Crap’ ‘Cowards’ And ‘This Destroys Bush’s Legacy’
Mediaite ^ | June 28th, 2012 | Jon Bershad

Posted on 06/28/2012 4:51:51 PM PDT by Mozilla

Glenn Beck made no attempt to hide his feelings. In fact, he launched into an absolutely epic rant, furiously condemning not just the Supreme Court, but also the Republican Party and the entire mainstream conservative movement.

Beck promoted the upcoming FreePAC event, saying that today’s result just furthered his frustration with regular conservative groups. He told listeners that he was sick of going to CPAC where he can speak out against progressives, get applause from the crowds, and then be betrayed by the “cowards” in charge who are “won’t come out and tell you what they really are”; “covert progressives.”

One such person who got called out was former President George W. Bush, the president who appointed Chief Justice John Roberts.

Beck went on to mock the notion that there is no litmus test for appointing Supreme Court justices, imagining a scenario where he’d ask potentials if they, for example, were ok with abortion and, if they didn’t answer instantly, he’d send them right out the door.

He also talked about Mitt Romney, warning the presidential hopeful that he “wouldn’t have jack support” in the country if he got into the White House and dared try to be “Mr. Bail Out” or have “a little RomneyCare.”

Glenn Beck and Freedom Works created a group to rival CPAC called FreePac. It sounds like they will hold an event soon.

John Roberts IS the Bush legacy. He is doing the Bush Family’s bidding. The Family is DEVOTED to big government and making sure their pet Pedro can get over the border and sign up for welfare.

I don’t normally like Beck but I do agree with him on this. Sick of Washington. Sick of Bush’s stupid legacy of helping destroy republicanism. They are all liars and cowards. They huff and puff but never blow the house down. They do nothing but compromise and now today the compromising is over and all I can say is welcome to Amerika the land of great big taxation and the destroyed dreams of millions.

The two-party concept is just that; a concept. Vested interests on both sides will push through whatever legislation that will benefit them and their handlers the most. Politicians learned long ago to not bite the hand that feeds them, and they make good lap dogs as a result. Both parties are equally guilty of this. If you want so see who is behind the curtain pulling the strings, just follow the money.

It’s too bad it has gotten this out of hand now. Obamacare was not even written as a tax and now it was re-written as one. Even Bill O’Reilly is ranting about the ruling on a phone call into his show hosted by Laura Ingraham.

Bill is even hot about the Dems walking out on Holder’s contempt vote. He says they walked out on Brian Terry’s family and every other American. The Dems will do what they want not obey laws or tell you the truth is what walking out meant.

Beck makes good points....but he is also part of the problem in some aspect

Many conservatives wanted Obama Eligibility to be addressed..but Beck sided with the Liberal MSM and the Liberal GOP in attacking the Eligibility people...even resorting to the name calling from the Liberal groups

Also, FreedomWorks head Dick Armey is a supporter of Illegal Alien Amnesty and for further integration w Mexico and Canada. I still remember Milton Friedman blasting Armey for pushing NAFTA years ago because Friedman correctly called it “Managed Trade”

It may take for Real Conservatives to walk from the GOP to fix the GOP. Voting and supporting Liberal GOPers is still being liberal

It’s rants like these that confuse me as to how he could support Romney.

Does he believe that Romney will be more “republican” than Bush? (I can’t even use the word conservative in that sentence)

The events and feelings of today were conceived and born in Mass.

I know, it makes no senses to support Mitt now. The election is meaningless because whether we get rid of Obamacare or not, we will still be subjects of a boundless Federal government.

If Bush can appoint traitorous bastards like John Roberts, what kind of bastard would Mitt appoint?

We have nothing more to gain the war for our constitutional republic is lost. If we hope to regain & retain our right we have no choice but to look toward Revolutary options.

Glenn Beck is a freckin fraud. He is a ROmney pusher. Freedomworks is nothing a lobbying firm and is backed by Glenn Beck.

Glenn Beck is all about power and now he is using this to push his stupid PAC.

Glenn Beck is one big fraud and Breitbart called him out on it. Beck turned against Palin because Palin supported Breitbart. Even though Palin has never said anything negative about Beck.

Beck is one big fraud.

Beck is all about Power.

Beck is certainly a coward about Obama’s forged birth certificates, failure to e-verify, and forged selective service card.

However...I did happen to listen to him this morning. ( I forgot the ear buds to my I-touch). I had to agree with a lot that he said this morning.

Quit blaming Bush! You people sound just like liberals. “Waaa,,,everything is Bush’s fault,,,waaa!” News flash,,,the best Bush could do was appoint someone who he thought would ALWAYS vote conservative. The SC does things to appointees. Solidly conservative appointees may turn liberal. Solidly liberal appointees may turn more conservative. They have minds of their own. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE how they will be once they are on the court. So quit your liberal, crybaby “it’s all Bush’s fault” imitations and put the blame where it belongs,,,,ON ROBERTS!!!

“He is a ROmney pusher. “

He didn’t push him in the primaries. Why not leave that kind of exaggeration to the left.

Good points. Reagan appointed Sandra Day O’Connor. Roberts clearly had better conservative specs going in than O’Connor. I’d say the liberal Washington political climate got to Roberts like it has to many conservative pols and justices.

We got Obama because McInsane and Palin lost.

Obviously, It was an arrangement. The Republican Convention didn't expend much effort to launch a campaign. Bob Dole II was lackluster. Palin was brought along to placate the the Right. GOP took one for the team.

Obama has burned a lot of people in these three and a half years, yet many burn scared hands will pull Democrat levers all over again in November, unless Romney shows some real conservative leadership.

D.C. could be GOP real estate starting in 2013, depending on what arrangements have already been made.

What'd ya expect?

Beck and Romney are BOTH temple Mormons.

Beck supports Romney ONLY because the real Conservatives at Fox news pushed mittens across the finish line. Glenn supported Santorum. He now supports Mitt because of one thing: as it says’s on his tee shirts

Romney: at least he isn't a commie. If you listened to him you would find out he held him in the lowest regard until money and that fat scum bag Gingrich refused to quit the race when it was obvious he would never poll over 12%. He knows Romney is a progressive republican...and freely admits it. However there is no other choice. The question is which 3rd party candidate do you support? If you listened to Beck you would know this already.

BS...and I am not a Mormon. Glenn Beck had Santorium on his show at least 25 times during the primaries, Romney refused to go on his show. Try using facts. Beck supported the Conservative Catholic...FACT! Glenn openly opposed Romney until it became Mitts race to lose. Hate mormons if you want too, I don’t care but get your facts right because Beck has done more for Conservatives than anyone I can think of.

Beck is a coward about forged birth certificates??? Huh. All Glenn said was why waste time on something that is not going to be disproved. Its a waste of time. You act like if Glenn Beck would have supported the birth certificate the government would have keeled over and Obama would have admitted his guilt. Geez, REALLY? But he was spot on this morning. Perhaps you should, with respect, take another look.
