Well see how long this pledge lasts. As part of his New Years 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 dont want to hear the mans voice. I dont want to hear him. I dont want to know about him. You want that information? Go any place else. Theres 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 novels protagonists referred to the evil wizard as he who shall not be named.
Why summons that? Beck said. Youre just asking for trouble. Why bring that on? Dont speak his name.

I wish the planet could be an Obama free zone. I don’t want to look at him. I don’t want to hear him. I don’t want to read about him. I want that nightmare to be erased from my memory.
I refer to him as the “flaming fairy princess,” “panty-waist,” or “candy-a**.”
Even presidents I don’t like, in the past I would at least listen to what they had to say if only to better know what they are up to.
In his case, I already know what he is up to; nothing he says sheds any new light, it only obfuscates.
Nicholas Taleb (the “Black Swan” writer) makes the remark with some frequency that he avoids the press because he knows more about what is going on the less he listens to them. I’ve come to the same conclusion about them and about O. The more you listen to either, the less you know.
