IMO, his "promise to "activate the sleeping giant" of Christian conservatives" is just another sign of his alcoholic grandiosity.
Your influence on Christians is highly inflated in your own mind, Glenn.
Beck is wrong more than Dick Morris and that’s saying something.
Going? Mormon Beck’s been all in for Mormon Mitt since the beginning.
There's no way Beck has that many subscribers.
He may motivate mormons but not Christians.
Beck is more delusional by the day.
He has always been a Romneybot, just was hiding it until the right time.
I am waiting for the “hanging by a thread” and “white horse” references to complete the delusion.
I'd say your influence around here to keep Romney from getting the nomination was highly inflated. lol. (btw, I voted for Gingrich)
I bet not one of the posters so far to this thread have watched his program. It is very good. Tonight, he will begin to shred Calypso Louie who demands the destruction of our beloved United States. BTW the subscription is less than $5/month.
Laura Inghram, just yesterday, took Beck’s place on a smaller station in the Portland, OR metro area. He used to be on two stations in the same time slot. He was replaced on the second station some time ago....or Huckabee took over Tuesday....didn’t listen much to the second station. Anyway Beck is not in the Portland market anymore.
This is not addressed to anyone in particular but for the sake of any who may decide to check out this thread. This is the first speech from The Oval.
The Imperial City
“My fellow Americans, today we are going to try something new.
I am going to sit here and say what we all know is true but which everyone is afraid to say.
I am going to talk about what made this country is great but why it is risking its greatness.
This is what our leaders should be doing. This is what our leaders are paid to do. This is why we give them advisers and airplanes to travel the world and beautiful offices, just like this one.
But they dont do it. They wont do it.
So I will.
Lets start with a simple observation. Before World War II, before the New Deal, here is what Washington D.C. looked like. It was a backwater. A swampy, sleepy city where nothing much happened.
And that was by design. The founding fathers wanted Washington D.C. to be a city of inaction. Of limited power.
Today, it is the imperial city.
The Washington D.C. metropolitan area is the wealthiest area of the country. And yet it boasts only one industry the government. Only one major employer the government. And only one product more government.
Today, we see Washingtons growth has cost us. While Washington blossoms, America is hollowed out. Its once great industries and industrial cities have emptied out. Block after block. Abandoned.
But in Washington, there is no recession. Home prices continue to rise. Unemployment continues to fall. This is a city on the move. And it is on the move in the only direction it knows: Up.
There is no such thing as a recession in government. When times are good, it gets bigger. When times are bad, it gets even bigger.
The leaders in the imperial city now call for more taxes, more tribute and more government. They are willing to strangle the last remaining signs of life and prosperity in the great heartland.
There is only one way out of this mess.
And it is this: We must stop looking to Washington D.C. for solutions to the problems we face at home and in our communities.
We must end our dependency on Washington D.C. We must look at Washington as the source of our problems not the solution to them. When Washington comes to us selling their one product, which is more government, we will just say: No thanks. Were not interested and were not buying.
Simply doing that one thing will make a lot of things easier.
It will be easy to close federal departments and agencies. Empty them out.
It will be easy to fire federal workers, and see them apply their skills in the private sector. Things will work out for them.
It will be easy to go back to the work of rebuilding our communities without the distraction and red tape created by every new law and regulation that comes out of Washington D.C. We will simply do the work that needed to be done.
Thats where Americas renewal will begin. I wish we could take the time to unwind Washington steadily and slowly, but I am afraid we are running out of time. We have to simply cut the cord, and let Washington go.
I know that will hurt home values in metropolitan Washington, but thats how these things go when you live in a one company town.
And if Washington cant understand that, there are plenty of Americans who know what thats like. And if Washington is willing to listen, America is ready to share what it knows about resilience.
We will talk more about that next week.
Thanks for watching.”
An alternate Oval Office sounds like a fun idea. If... he can keep it short and to the point. How likely is that though?
He also covered how Obama has only given 2 speeches from oval office. Does not respect our traditions or history. I have no problem with him doing this.
Michelle Obama has turned part of the White House into a gym for Biggest Loser NBC show. They do not respect the the people's house (imo). Degrades the office of President
very sad when we shoot our own.
Grandiosity is right. I turned his radio show on this morning to see if I could catch him in a pro-Romney meltdown, and instead he was promoting his latest rally, “Restoring Love”, and urging people to donate up to a thousand dollars. He solemnly proclaimed it would change the world. Yes, that’s what he said about the other rallies. He seriously needs someone to take him aside and talk straight to him about what he’s turned into.
Interestingly, the travel agency he uses for all his rallies goes by the name of Voyager Tours, or Voyager Travel, when he uses them publicly. The rest of the time they’re called LDS Travel Tours. So anyone who’s planning on attending and using the agency he promotes, be aware——you’re enriching the Mormon church.
Yawn. Who is surprised by this? Glenn Beck only motivates me to get up and turn the radio off.
Beck was born and raised Catholic, the faith that Jesus started himself. He left the Catholic Church to become a Morman. A church started by some drunken shyster named Joe Smith, who had 14 or 15 wives. Take nothing this character says seriously.
