Glenn Beck’s New Year’s Resolution: No One On My Show Can Mention ‘That Man’ Obama Anymore
Mediaite ^ | 1/2/13 | Andrew Kirell

Posted on 01/02/2013 1:47:25 PM PST by Nachum

We’ll see how long this pledge lasts. As part of his New Year’s resolutions, conservative talk host Glenn Beck returned from the holidays with a new policy: no one can mention President Obama anymore on his show.

“Anybody who brings him up, besides me, is fired,” Beck said of the new policy. Astonished by the severity, co-host Stu Burguiere asked if staffers could get by with just mentioning that “the president said,” to which Beck said it would be evaluated on a “case-by-case basis.”

Instead choosing to refer to the president as “that man” or “that guy,” Beck explained the very loose definition of what counts as “mentioning” the president in his mind. After much back and forth with his colleagues, Beck said:

“You can allude to him. You can play Joe Biden. But I don’t want to hear the man’s voice. I don’t want to hear him. I don’t want to know about him. You want that information? Go any place else. There’s thousands of outlets, you can have all the information you want. I am not talking about that man.”

Burguiere joked that Obama is now like the villainous Harry Potter character Voldemort in that the novel’s protagonists referred to the evil wizard as “he who shall not be named.”

“Why summons that?” Beck said. “You’re just asking for trouble. Why bring that on? Don’t speak his name.”

ROTFL.

Glenn has adopted the policy at my house.

DrO does not permit the Marxist’s voice in our house. He is muted at all times and the channel is changed whenever his ugly face appears on the screen.

It’s been this way for months.

I don’t know if this is Beck’s point, but I applaud it as an escape hatch from the trap of personifying the opposition. Obama is just one man. The problem, which among other things is socialism, is much bigger, almost planetary. It’s nearly as much in the Republican Party as the White House, which itself is chockfull of people who aren’t Obama. Obama isn’t even the worst example, not by a long shot. Edwards or Gore would have been worse, probably.

We’ve gotten more use out of the remote in the past 4 years than ever before-with the same guidelines.

I enjoyed Glenn’s TV show, and was disappointed when I first tuned into his radio program. I now enjoy it. Everyone has to kick back once in a while, especially in these stressful times. Glenn, Pat and Stu all have a great sense of humor.

Same here. We eventually had to switch what we normally call him (our six year old picked up quite the salty language).

I've been calling him "that guy in the white house" for awhile. At home we do not hear his voice, watch him on TV, or call him President, even when a conservative talk show host speaks of "him" the radio goes to OFF. The Vacationer in Chief is persona non gratis here.

Your house, too? Mrs. Vigilanteman has declared that not only the mute button shall be used when BO appears on screen, but the channel shall be changed or the set shall be turned off. She can tolerate the POS even less than me . . . another reason I love her.

I turn off the TV or switch channels whenever his face is shown, his voice comes on or some fool news commentator starts talking about him. I never turn on local news until it has been on for about 12 minutes then Obama kissing is over.

“I turn off the TV or switch channels whenever his face is shown”

I always feel juvenile when I do that.

No more-—I see that I have company.

Too bad I can't tune in locally any more. He's hit or miss, but when Beck is good, his program is outstanding. Unfortunately, the local station switched to all sports radio. Internet or satellite radio are the only options now.

The other local station is a Rush broadcaster and, other than Limbaugh and then Jason Lewis late at night, they have mostly gone to the dark side too. Oh well...it was good while it lasted.

Don't know who your talking about Glen....rofl.

No one in my family will say his name, will not look at or listen to what's his name, but this started 4 years ago.

Canceled Cable TV today, canceled land line, down to basics.

You slacker! It's been that way for at least for a year in my house. Granted, it's just myself and my wife, but she usually beats me to the remote/mute/change channel buttons.

I cannot stand seeing his face let alone his vocal lying spew.

We’ve always muted him, but it’s only been months since we’ve started changing the channel to rid his ugly face from the screen!
