The Audio That Beck Says Should Sink Obama’s Poll Numbers to the ‘20s’
The Blaze ^ | March 3, 2014 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 03/03/2014 9:05:43 PM PST by lbryce

Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday that if the media focused on what the Obama administration said about Russia “over and over again” during the 2012 presidential election, the president’s poll numbers would plummet.

“You want the president’s ratings to be [where they] should be, in the 20s?” Beck asked. “All you have to do is tell the truth. All you have to do is play the audio of how wrong this man is.”

Beck continued: “The mainstream media just doesn’t care. As long as you win the moment, it doesn’t matter what you said in the past. You can be proven absolutely wrong … but they have amnesia.”

Beck said that after Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney called Russia America’s “number one geopolitical foe” in March 2012, he was eviscerated by the administration and members of the media, though recent events in Ukraine would indicate he wasn’t far off in his analysis.

Obama mentioned Romney’s comment numerous times, and said at the Democratic National Convention: “You don’t call Russia our number one enemy — not Al Qaeda, Russia — unless you’re still stuck in a Cold War mind-warp.”

Secretary of State John Kerry, then a U.S. senator, echoed at the time: “Mitt Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV.”

Beck expressed disgust over how Obama changed Romney’s words from “geopolitical foe” to “enemy,” before launching into a fiery tirade.

“The problem is, the media won’t report the truth,” Beck remarked. “The truth is, the last people you should be listening to on the Ukraine is this administration. They didn’t see it coming. They had no idea. They were mocking that Putin might be a bad guy.”

At this point, there's nothing I would put past Obama. Telling me that he's got an audio that would sink Obama's Poll Numbers To the 20s, is frankly underwhelming.

Tell me, his poll numbers are in negative territory and watch me yawn.

How did the founding fathers feel about poll numbers? What does the Constitution say about poll numbers?

Really, think about it. What freaking difference does it make what his poll numbers are if he's President of the United States,
Commander-in-Chief, Dictator of his Own private enclave, with no one to answer to, nothing to stop him, remains the proverbial
bull in the china shop, running amok, a raging bulldozer with a vacant driver's seat with about three years left to go??

Frankly, Mr. Beck, I am unimpressed with your seemingly shocking news. Poll numbers to the 20s has me turning over in my PJ's.

Considering Obama gets 30-40% for just showing up, poll numbers in the twenties would be news, indeed.

The MSM is the Country’s greatest threat.

This great nation is confronted by three enemies:

1. Radical Islamists abroad.

2. Radical leftists at home.

3. The Mainstream Media.

And, of these three, the most dangerous is, indeed, the MSM. Because, without the support of the MSM, the other two enemies would've been defeated a decade-or-more ago.

I know. They keep playing into Bo’s hand, treating him like he’s running for office. If his poll numbers go to 4 who’s going to do anything about it? Congress’ poll numbers are like 9. Who fixes that?

Boner is still running things, handing BO the keys

I like beck but he’s like the boys in seventh grade. Just not serious.

Every place her vaunted soft diplomacy was tried, it failed miserably.

Libya - Yes Ghadaffi was killed (we came, we saw, he died), but so was Ambassador Stevens.

Egypt - Yes Murabek was removed, but so was the Muslim Brotherhood.

Syria - Yes the civil war has raged, but Assad is still in power.

Ukraine - Yes we kicked out the Russian stooge, but we lost Crimea.

Fairly clear that soft power only gets you short term gains that have no staying power.

Think I will still call her Hillary the Great though. She still has a few years left.

“The mainstream media just doesn’t care. As long as you win the moment, it doesn’t matter what you said in the past. You can be proven absolutely wrong … but they have amnesia.”

That's a very nice way of putting things.

It describes the behavior of liberals and the MSM. Say anything to win the moment, and then move on as if it never happened.

As Ann Coulter once said, "The beauty of being a liberal is that history always begins this morning."

Hey, maybe he's not. Maybe he's just resisting the forces of Kaos, know what I mean?

“Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday that if the media focused....”

But that is exactly the point - the “media”, so-called, have become nothing but an Obama lap dog; they’ve voluntarily become Obama’s castrati and the unofficial Obama Ministry of Propaganda.

Media?

America no longer HAS any media.

The MSM and the Democrat Party are domestic enemies, and should be recognized as such.

Who is "serious"? Beck has uncovered more about Obama and his henchwomen than the rest put together.

That is by design, My FRiend. He was put in the White House for one purpose and one purpose only. That reason? To totally and completely destroy the united States of America as a World Power both morally and physically. And in that he has been and continues to be very successful.

If The Won was just an incompetent, bumbling fool, he would accidentally “get it right” once in a while.

He never “gets it right”.

Therefor, he’s not an “incompetent, bumbling fool”; he’s an enemy agent, doing his best to destroy this country.

It's not amnesia; it's coverup.

They are enthusiastically complicit in the destruction of this country.

AMEN and AMEN !!! And the reason he gets away with is that is that his enablers , aiders and abettors continue to chant in unison, "He is just in over his head." "He is just incompetent". "He don't know what he is doing"

But be that as it may, he is god , messiah and idol to the college students of the Nation, the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and to a lesser extent, the Republican Party. They all worship and kiss the ground he pisses upon. This is substantiated by the evidence.

On that score, Mr. Beck is 100% correct.

Impeachment, now a slow silent drum beat. But Impeachment in time can grow to a level no one can stop. Pass it on.
