OldDan you are so wrong. To say that Gingrich hates this Country the way Obama does and to actually go out of his way to try and back stab every friend this country has Including Israel. two peas in the same pod? Get a life and cancel Beck before you spend all your money on Generators and MRE's. Gingerich does have some progressive views but 2 peas in a pod.... So BEck was right I guess if Gingrich gets the nomination you will be voting for Obama, Or giving it to Obama by supporting a 3rd party idiot like Ron Paul? Beck said he would consider that if Newt got the nod,,,,, I'm all done spouting off now. I'm tired of this topic. Beck said what he meant and meant what he said, He got caught and the Judge called him out on it. LOL
He wont. I think he will shed some tears. That will do the trick, Shed some tears and then go to the commercial free program and try and sell some Gold, and Generators and Freeze dried food. And then have someone fill in for him. He's busy these days with all this political stuff going on. Glenn Beck is the best thing that ever happened to the Democratic Party. He will help the Republicans screw this up better than they could ever do by themselves. Just what we need another Libretarian wasting votes and putting the liberal back in charge.
So lets do what Glenn says and support Ron Paul? save your time and money and just go vote for Obama that way your not labeled a Racist Tea Party Member.
takes care of the problem without much effort. I told everyone I know that Republicans would find a way to screw this up and the best help so far has been GLENN BECK.
Get your facts straight junior, He in fact did say he would consider a Ron Paul third party run. He said it on Judge Napalatono's show. And he said as bad as he disagrees with Ron Paul's foreign policy he would consider Paul as a 3rd party candidate before he would vote for Gingrich. Beck needs to go back to drinking. He's probably sold all the Gold, generators and freeze dried food that he can.
BTW, He supports who? Bachmann and Santorum. he only gets to vote for one.
Glenn really stepped in it this time. But wait! It’s a left wing socialist trick that made him say Tea Party members are Racist if they vote for Newt, Glenn would never say that. It’s some kind of conspiracy.
So now I'm a Racist if I dont vote for Obama? I'm a tea party member and a racist?
this will be my last look at this web page or GBTV i've requested my subscription to be cancelled.
Obama is no different than Newt? And all along I thought those tears you shed so often was because you love America.
Well, I'm so disappointed in Beck. I have, to this point, been a HUGE fan, but he is doing all the things politically he said he would never do and he is dead wrong. One thing that really bothers me is that he is acting like people can't change. "just look at his record and what he has said". What if we looked at Glenn's past and could not get past that, or forgive him his transgressions, or believe that he is a different person now. Wow! Can he be the only one to overcome his past? I don't think so, and with all of his sheeple type followers, he may just be handing this election to Obama.
Beck has clearly risen to the level of his incompetence.
He is just going to go around the table criticizing something about each candidate until he arrives at the conclusion that it has to be Romney as the nominee even though he doesn't really like him. He will do that because they are both Mormons.
What I just said is no more absurd or offensive than what Beck just said about the Tea Party. If Beck does not need to be substantive in his "assessments" I don't either. This combined with the way he weaseled out of criticism for the Sherrod story last summer should have people who are paying attention running for the exits on this guy. He is officially a clown.
You must be the male version of Monica Lewinsky for the Dems, so you must like your cigars up your kazoo like a humidor before you strike er up...eh?
I was mad at Beck earlier for his statement and didn't watch his show live today because I was supporting Newt but then I felt I needed to here him out. I just finished Becks monolog on GBTV this evening to find myself in agreement with him about Newt, I suggest you all do the same!
I've been a loyal and happy fan of Glenn's for YEARS, I even got TWO gbtv subscriptions just to show extra support for his endeavors. I've watched this a few times and came to the conclusion that he really did say this in all seriousness, he wasn't just being 'sarcastic' or 'joking' and I take offense at his comment. I never disliked Obama because of his skin color. I supported Cain and my fiance's not white (he's Eskimo) I dislike Obama cuz he's a fraud. I'm not saying I'm a Newt supporter either, I haven't decided. But should I choose to support Newt, that has nothing to do with his or Obama's skin color. I think Bachmann and Santorum are the last TRUE Conservatives we have running... but hey, I'll take Newt ANY DAY over Obama!!! If Ron Paul were to win the nomination (snickers) I'd vote for him too, whoever gets the nomination gets my full support, even if I have to strap on a gas mask to vote for them! Back peddle all you want Glenn, you put your own foot securely in your own mouth. Where's our apology??
When he said, "it must be about race", either he meant that Newt was racist, or that we are.
Newt may well have some baggage from the past, but he's unquestionably the brightest of all the candidates. And I'll bet he wrote his own books.
When are you going to learn? He's fundamentally right. A progressive is a progressive. Now we are only talking degrees... e.g. Buss II and the TSA, Prescription Medicare, Bailouts. A PROGRESSIVE IS A PROGRESSIVE. Pull your heads out and vote for someone with principles. Ron Paul anyone?
I agree. They are clearly not the same. I will sprint and vote for Newt, Mitt, Rick, Rick, Michelle, Mickey Mouse (who is a proven conservative), even Huntsmann (PLEASE NOOOO!). They're all BTO.
Beck says some stupid things sometimes.
As for the controversy of the day: No he's not saying the Tea Party is racist. Michele Bachmann and Allen West just visited his show this morning. Both are Tea Party icons and neither had an issue with Beck.
I am sad that he did not say he was sorry for the comment. Man up, Beck.
Ya I wish he would say those words too. Maybe he will tonight.
This ridiculous statement begs the question: Did Glenn start drinking again?
Time for a vacation Glenn.
I totally agree. I was a heartbeat away from canceling my subscription.
Some people in the Tea Party support Gingrich because they are ill informed. They swoon over his "Conservo-speak" and never look at his record.
Beck will do a segment tonight on his TV show digging into Newt's record and setting the record straight. If you still support Gingrich then your clueless, but NOT racist.
The "medecine man" is at it again. He was banned from my household after his similar attcak on Herman Cain when he turned false accusations of sexual harassment into sexual assault on his radio show. The medecine man said that we should not support Cain and now he is telling us that we are racist if we support Newt. How is what he is doing any different than what the liberal media is doing to our primary election? Obviously themedecine man also would like to tell us who we can and can not vote for. I am done with anything and everything Beck!
that is the sad part of power....power corrupts even the purest of hearts so one that is flawed will be corrupted even more. why? can you say vanity??
As a Glenn Beck fan I'd like to ask Glenn if he'd skip the vote or vote third party if Newt's the GOP nominee. either way, good luck with that Glenn. Despite my misgivings with Newt which I've had for a couple decades, I'd be glad to vote for him over Obama.
It's totally beyond me how a Gog fearing man like Beck can make such a fals statement about someone. I agree with Beck a lot, and like him too, but this is way off. Obama expanded Government more than anyone in History, and Newt actually cut it, as Rush said.
The term big Government is a very broad one. According to Ron Paul everyone besides him is also for too big of a government.
Do you know that a stubbern, in box conservative approach would've worked on Capitol Hill to actually accomplish something? When was the last time that happened? Go back and check Ronald Reagan's statements while in office and you'll see how meny times he took a practical position over the ideal one, in order to accomplish. Remember, Newt wasn't a talk artist, he was a Republican speaker of the house...
-1 for Breitbart.
Beck totally should have never hired Betsy Morgan, right? A successful and intelligent news CEO, but no! She just *might* be a registered Democrat. God forbid a Democrat trying to find the TRUTH!.
Political division will destroy this country. Whether it's voting for one Progressive and not the other or hiring someone based not on their merits, but on their political affiliation.
All Glenn Beck has done is just give the Libtards ammo against the republicans and tea party for the general election. Run the video again and really listen to him. Also, he says he is one step above Ron Paul with the exception on Israel. Glenn is loosing it!
Additionally, the sad part is he is calling Rick Santorum a liar.
Here is Rick Santorum;
''Newt Gingrich is the man that taught me to be a Conservative...Newt is the man I admire and made me the Conservative I am today...''
Lastly, Glenn Becks for his arguement is ''guilty by association'' which is nothing but a strawman. It is really exposing the bais that Glenn Beck has and makes him look like a hypocrite since he is the one that exposes ''malace toward no one''. I got news for you Glenn Beck, as a republican that is wrongful intention is one of the foundations of malice so you have just made yourself a HYPOCRITE!
But lets break down Glenn's ''guilt by association'' arguement and apply it another way. So, simply put because Newt liked early TR as a trust busting, child labor labor law, evironmentalism friendly, FDA, Republican, long before TR made his Progressivism speech and went Bull Moose, by that association; Newt is a Progressive.... ridiculous!
Why? Because if that were the case then President Reagan could be labeled a progressive as well. Yep! you guessed it....President Ronald Reagan is a progressive under Glenn arguement. Why, because President Reagan based alot of his campaign and Presidential policies had their origins based on FDR.
President Reagan was fond of quoting FDR and agreed with some of his policies and decisions. Therefore, based on the Glenn Beck model President Reagan was a Progressive.... again, RIDICULOUS. Glenn, your argument is weak and malicious on just like the ''guilt by association'' arguement on Reagan!!!!
Google ''the Roosevelt Myth'' by Murray N. Rothbard which is a white paper that goes indept on Reagan and origins. Good read with alot of facts.
Please. Obama is a socialist. Newt is no progressive. He has many new ideas but he wants less goverment. Stop trying to make them all the same please.
I like what you say at first but Newt is a different man now just like Glenn is a different man from 15 years ago.
They are clearly not the same guy. They're obviously not perfect conservatives but absolutely nothing like Obama. That is just plain dumb!
Glenn, there's a reason your tv show on fox failed and your radio rating are dropping like roll back prices at walmart...
I like Glenn Beck, but wholeheartedly disagree. I feel Gingrich is the most qualified to run this country.
There are times when Beck does more damage than I'm sure he intends to. This is one of those times. I heard his words. I heard someone tell me that voting for Newt is the same as voting for Obama. There is not a possibility on earth that I could disagree with Beck more on this. In fact, I'm a wee bit ticked off at him on this one.
No, Glen Blech actually "jumped the shark" six years ago on his radio show when the crazy idiot fantasized ON THE AIR about strangling Michael Moore to death.
The only reason I think Glenn say that is that he can stand the fact that Newt is now polling better than his Mormon buddy Mitt. he has to slow him down.
He's not calling tea partiers racists he's making a point about Newt's record as a progressive. He clearly asked tea partiers to check newts record and point out any other difference. He was clearly speaking on National and more specifically economic policies. Anybody that takes this as calling tea partiers racists is a complete idiot. Newt and Obama are progressing towards different kinds of socialism but they are both progressing towards the same socialist centralized economic power. They differ on a internation scale but are nearly identical on national policies.
That is bullcrap....I watched the video 4 times now and it is the same everytime...Glenn Beck is not joking he is dead serious which I find quite insulting and irresponsible. A vote for Gingrich does not mean you are a racist!!!!!
All Glenn Beck has done is just give the Libtards ammo for against the tea party. Run the video 2 times again and really listen to him. Also, he says he is one step above Ron Paul with the exception on Israel. Glenn is loosing it!
First of all, his question is completely fair: If Obama is progressive-heavy and Gingrich progressive-light, the only real difference between them is race and the speed at which government grows. In the end we get the same result: a bloated and insolvent government, and a debt enslaved and government addicted citizenry!
Secondly, are you're seriously trying to convince me that people aren't overreacting and taking Glenn off of their radio dial? Lets take a closer look:
“he loses all credibility”
“I use to like Beck, but this is just pathetic.”
“Bye Glenn, it's been real.”
“He has a lost a listener with this remark.”
“Cancel your membership to GBTV and boycott his next book.”
“Beck has lost his mind.”
“I just canceled My subscription to GBTV in protest!”
“I guess I won't buy any of his books now”
“I am soooooo finished with Beck.”
“Beck has officially lost his damn mind!”
“Glad to hear you're not going to give Beck any more play on this site."
I rest my case!
Even if you agree that Newt has a progressive streak in him, there are different degrees of it. To come to the conclusion that race must be the only factor, then he is saying that the policies of Newt and Obama are exactly the same, which is farthest from the truth. There can be no way that Beck honestly believes that Newt and Obama are the same policy wise...if he does, he loses all credibility....
I'm about as conservative as conservative gets but if Newt gets the Republican nomination I'd rather see Obama win. I'm not kidding about this. I will vote for a third party or a write in. I would rather this country go down the tubes with everybody knowing exactly who is responsible than to see it go down the tubes with everybody still debating who's fault is was.
Sorry, Glenn, but there IS a difference between a "progressive" who, however misguided, genuinely loves this country and wants the best for it, over and against a communist who virulently hates this country and is doing everything in his considerable power to destroy it. http://bit.ly/um9pEx
There IS a difference between a man who racked up a good pro-life voting record during his long years in the U.S. House, versus a man who, as an Illinois state senator, voted FOUR times to KILL living, breathing, newborn babies who've survived late-term abortions and been born alive. http://bit.ly/tjKCEJ
There IS a difference between a man who is extraordinarily perceptive, knowledgeable, articulate and honest about the threat we face from radical Islam both overseas and within our own country from insidious snakes such as CAIR, http://bit.ly/rylK2Y as opposed to a man who not only despises Israel (and the Jewish people, I believe) and admires Islam, but has aided and abetted our radical Islamist enemies to a degree approaching outright treason.
You don't want people to apply the standard you're applying to Glenn to you. "You said what you said," even when you're being sarcastic?
I know how you've been trained because the idea that your reaction is what determines meaning has been taught throughout the schools for decades. And it's revealed in your comments, time and again.
Napolitano knows how people will react to what Glenn said, but I doubt very much that he thinks Glenn wasn't being sarcastic.
