Frontpage’s Man of the Year: Glenn Beck – by David Forsmark

beck

The year of Obamarific “change” quickly became the year of dissent as Americans grew disillusioned with the “trillion here and a trillion there” spending of President Barack Obama even as unemployment rose. The so-called “Stimulus Package,” which promised to cap unemployment at 8%, did nothing to generate private sector jobs. The only area that seemed to be stimulated was joblessness, which soared above 10%.

Despite an economic disaster, the Democrats in Congress and the White House focused on socializing American health care and an economy-busting “cap and trade” scheme to hike energy taxes.  To top it off, it seemed every day brought revelations about radicals with unconscionable views who either held high offices in the new administration or were funded with taxpayer money.

Suddenly, the loudmouths of the Left and the poobahs of the Lame-Stream Media — who had deemed dissent to be “the highest form of patriotism” when George W. Bush occupied the White House — whistled another tune. They began savaging of opponents of the Obama regime as Nazis, racists and ignorant rubes. Their targets weren’t just public figures who stood in the way of their agenda; rather, they viciously attacked ordinary Americans, the tea partiers, to whom they gave a sobriquet (tea-baggers) that no network censors would have allowed just a few years ago.

For our Man of the Year issue, we justifiably could have taken the cheap and easy route (such as Time circa 2006) and said it was the year of the “ordinary citizen.” After all, the anti-Obama Tea Party movement shook the foundations of the political establishment this summer.

All of our nominees contributed mightily to the informed dissent that gave hope for the right kind of change in the next few election cycles. Here are the nominees:

Dick Cheney

Ex-Veep Cheney, the man most hated (and feared) by the Left, won every argument he picked with Obama, scoring huge in the public arena on Attorney General Eric Holder’s ridiculous persecution of the CIA staffers who interrogated suspected terrorists; and he has been effective in all other national security debates.  Almost as important as the vice president’s comeback is the emergence of daughter Liz Cheney as one of conservatism’s most articulate defenders.  If this award were for Family of the Year, the Cheneys would be the hands-down winners.

Andrew Breitbart

Orginally known as Matt Drudge’s lieutenant in compiling the still-essential Drudge Report, Breitbart became the most influential conservative figure on the Internet this year.  His smash hit site Big Hollywood immediately became a must-read on a daily basis, and he launched Big Government with the Story of the Year — the ACORN prostitution sting videos.  With more sites on the way, Breitbart will continue to be one of the brightest lights in the conservative movement.

Sarah Palin

Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, deserves a slot on this list just for the self-revealing rage she generates with the liberal establishment. The former Alaska governor also is the most beloved figure among the ordinary people who are newly minted activists in the wake of Obama’s big government excess.  Is there any other person who can change the debate and the political lexicon with a mere Facebook entry?  Death Panel is certainly the phrase of the year.

Rush Limbaugh

One could make the case that Limbaugh has been the conservative MVP — most valuable player or politico — every year since 1994.  It’s doubtful Obama ‘s approval rating would be under 50% and Obamacare would hover at about 60% disapproval without El  Rushbo. Instead of a routine annual update on Rush’s contribution to the debate, however, it’s time to just name the trophy after him and move on.

And the winner is…

 

Glenn Beck

Whether you love him or hate him, or consider him to be a must-see TV or DVR necessity, radio and TV talker Beck is a bright new star in the conservative firmament. You might get fired up by his calls to action or wince at his emotional outbursts — you even might tune in today only to see if this is when his head finally explodes—but you have to admit, this was the Year of the Beck.

In the past 12 months, Beck rose from hosting an obscure TV show on CNN Headline News to a terrible time slot on Fox News’ cable juggernaut.  Regardless, his show at 5 p.m. became a ratings smash hit and attracted direct angry response from the White House.

Beck’s show now attracts a far bigger audience than his competitors on CNN, MSNBC and Headline News combined. In fact, he doesn’t really have any competition — on any given day, Beck can attracts 20 times the audience of Hardball with Chris Matthews on MSNBC.

This, indeed, was the Year of the Beck. In NBA terms, Limbaugh is the 30-points-per game superstar with several championship rings, who last year played for an otherwise pathetic team.  Beck is the team’s rookie draft pick who exceeded expectations and brought fresh energy that caught the other team flat-footed and changed the game.

Beck is such a major part of the political landscape today that it’s hard to remember he was still a minor factor just a year ago. Sure, his books sold very well, and his radio show was making a move to the top tier of the market; but during the 2008 election, the Left and the MSM were not sneering and using the term, “Limbaugh/Hannity /Beck,” and Obama was not calling him out by name.

In one short year, the epithet has become “Limbaugh/Beck/Palin,” and the White House is responding defensively.

Beck made the cover of Time magazine, was one of Barbara Walters’ “10 Most Fascinating People of 2009″ and makes an almost nightly appearance as one of Keith Olbermann’s “Worst People in the World.” (A great honor, no doubt.)

Probably no other broadcaster in any medium is as in tune with the feisty mood of the times.  While other talk show hosts certainly connect with the Tea Partiers, and I’m sure the vast majority of them listen to Limbaugh and watch a certain amount of Hannity, no media figure has the direct connection to the Tea Party dissidents that Glenn Beck enjoys.  No one.

Only Sarah Palin gets that kind of love from the crowds that have House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shaking in fear, and making up wild accusations on the while the cameras roll.

In his rookie year on live television, Beck has the White House reeling. He already has two major scalps dangling from his lance—self-proclaimed communist Van Jones, the green jobs czar, and White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, a devout fan of Maso Tse-Tung.

Leftist Cass Sunstein, the proposed “Regulatory Czar” who puts animal rights on a par with human rights,  and  Keith Jennings, a pedophilic Activist ironically named as Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar,” are also in his sights. While Breitbart deserves the lion’s share of the credit if ACORN goes down, no one has supplied more context on the community activist/con job organization and its tentacles into the Obama a Administration than Beck.

So where does Beck go from here?  His meteoric rise in 2009 will be a tough act to follow.  He obviously cannot again increase his TV audience tenfold — that would put him in “Who Shot J.R.” territory.  He has gained an audience and, for now, seems to be holding it.

The cheap and easy analysis would be to suppose that Beck’s emotional approach will wear on the audience or he will burn out.  However, as I learned when reviewing Beck’s latest bestseller, Arguing with Idiots, (still sitting at No. 3 as of this writing), Beck’s antics may draw people in, but there is a deep well of substance behind his act.

Beck, to be sure, is a performer and a showman.  He takes risks, and enough of them pay off to make up for his small mistakes.  Beck is attuned to the times, perfectly situated to benefit from the Obama backlash.  However, he has the substance for the long haul.

Whether 2010 is another Year of the Beck, or not, it is poised to be a comeback year for conservatism.  If it is, then Glenn Beck will have been a major part of the reason — and my bet is that is what will matter most to him.

    Wow! Read this one. It is really good. And this gentleman says it just like it is.

    This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii
    for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president. Consult : http://xrl.us/bgeewc

    Glen Beck — poster child for the right wing nut cases. Thank you for saying it outloud.

    Dick Cheney — most hated and feared man: well not really. When he crawled out from under his rock to endorse McCain, he did Obama a favor because he is the most distrusted man thus helping moderates with there choice thus giving Obama a mandate.

    Sara Palin — helped Obama win as well for a different reason: the scary thought that a this trailer trash drama queen would be a heartbeat from running this country.

    Imagine us at at the brink of nuclear war with her finger on the button. She wouldn''t know what to do and we would probaly have to talk her out of the closet.

    Yes, Limbaugh is the MVP with his fast mouth but slow thoughts: “I hope you fail” — that is all some of us needed to hear to help us decide the coming election.

  • Lary9

    What a line-up of scallywags and reprobates you've assembled! It represents an authentic first: an inexplicable convocation of the Jesters of Journalism. If I didn't know you were serious, I'd have thought you were writing skits for SNL's Weekend Update..Each nominee alone is guaranteed to give liberals night sweats. Personally I have contributed over $300 to the family “Curse Box” (at 25 cents/offense) from my exposure to this motley gang of 'true believers'. My personal profanity skills have increased to levels of foul temper unheard of since I was discharged from military duty. I can only think of one thing to say and I wish it was in Latin so I could sneak in some cursing but—“At long last, sir. Have you no decency?”

    I've never met anyone with any class that had a “Family Curse Box.” Must be fun times around the trailer park.

  • Like it is

    That feeling on the American rear is the leftist pickpockets who can't seem to accomplish anything without the help of the entire village. Plotting, plotting, plotting to figure out how to get other people's money into their hands. I guess us hard working slobs on the right just have to shed a tear and pull out our wallets when another one of you needs something.

    The entire time lefties are plotting to steal other people's money they are usually smoking spot and ordering pizza and then they cry that they don't have enough money to pay their rent or whatever. And, we're the selfish ones. I give to charity. It's just that I like to decide what worthy cause I want to give to.

  • thinker1

    liberals are educated beyond their intelligence, i.e. smooth talk, plenty of verbiage, but no logic, no registering of facts. they will say anything to force their point, regardless of its idiocy. Let 'em yep, don't try reason – it does not work with them; they can only bark, smear and lie.

  • Tom March

    I remember Glenn Beck's radio show some years ago. I wasn't very impressed, didn't like him and didn't listen. He would have very little information and too much time to talk about it. Then the local station changed to someone else in that time slot. They went through several hosts including Tony Snow up until he left to join the Bush administration followed by Laura Ingraham. When they dropped Laura to pick up Beck I was angry and didn't listen again. Instead I signed up to Laura's web cast and continued listening there. Then, Beck moved to Fox News and I watched his program. What a difference! I even started to listen to his radio show as Well. I was supprised when I heard Beck state that even he didn't understand what was going on until just several years ago when a series of events and people he knew sent him on a large reading and research project where he started to find out what the truth was. Now I can't imagine not having his valuable insight into what is happening and what the truth is. God bless Glenn Beck and we are truly blessed to have him.

  • DenofThieves

    Trailer trash drama queen?! What does that make Obama? After all, we only have his word for it that his parents were married when he was born…and even if they were,it was a shotgun wedding! And he can thank affirmative action for his entrances into Occidental/Columbia/Harvard. If he's such a smarty-pants, why won't he let the public see his school records?

    Sarah Palin, a daughter of a school teacher, who worked her way through college and became a governor of a state…how the hell does that equal “white trash?”

    LIB IMBECILES CANNOT WAIT!!! Another LIE:
    :Rush Hudson Limbaugh III (pronounced /ˈlɪmbɔː/;born January 12, 1951, died December 30, 2009) is an American radio host and conservative political commentator. He is the host of The Rush Limbaugh Show, the highest-rated talk-radio program in the United States. It airs throughout the U.S. on Premiere Radio Networks.

    RUSH IS ALIVE, YOU CRETINS!!!!

    I agree with Rush. I hope his policies fail, you twit.

    As for Glen Beck, I just discovered him this year, and he deserves this award. We can give it Sarah in 2012, when she sends Mr. Hussein back to the golf course.

    quote OF THE YEAR:

    “I'd donate a heart to keep Rush alive,” wrote blogger Dan Riehl. “Just need a knife and a liberal close by. ; )”

  • USMCSniper

    My how vile is the venimous hate you spew forth for those who accurately point out how really evil you and others with your collectivist world view are. All personal insults, without substance or merit on people whose world views can easily stand the light of day.

    Nut cases? How about Al “Chicken Little” Gore and his badly written fiction books, like “Earth in the Balance” and his stupidity like saying the interior temperature of the earth is millions of degrees F. Too stupid to suspect he is stupid and even certifiable.

    I guess the leftists and their suckups, the so-called moderates don't like alpha males like Cheney or Reagan, they prefer butch females like Hillary Clinton and the omega males like Clinton, Obama, and Harry Reid – cowardly men you would not want anywhere near you in battle.

    I bet you like those four hags on The View, two monkey bitches that hate white people, a dried up old post menupausal hag who imagines she is somebody, an a bitter fat unfunny comedian who spews forth hate every time she opens her mouth.
    By the way tell me what Hillary Clinton has ever done successfully in her entire life?

    And you do not like Rush Limbaugh, with talent on loan from God, I guess you prefer Chris Mathews with a tingle down his leg for Obama like some latent homosexual, or as Ann Coulter describes him, Keith Olbermann, a 57 year old babbling woman trapped in a man's body.

    I like Beck and consider him highly entertaining. I think Limbaugh, who is also entertaining, is actually the deeper thinker. Beck can be shallow and superficial, too hung up on bumber sticker sloganizing. Entertaining is good and important, but no substitute for taking a degree in economics or science!

  • lisabrehm

    Great pick for man of the year!!! I couldn't agree more! Conservatives are starting to find their voices and in large part, we owe much of the credit for this to Glenn Beck.

    Sorry–you have gone off the deep end–the people nominated are sloppy thinkers–“intelligent designen advocates, deniers of antropogenic global warming despite overwhelming scientific evidence, demogogs–and Glenn Beck is a nutcase. You're making Charles Johnson look better every day.

  • Steve Chavez

    THERE'S NOTHING COCKROACHES HATE MORE THAN SOMEONE TURNING ON THE LIGHTS!

    Beck is the only one brave enough in the high level media to turn on those lights exposing the real Communists and Closet Communists with real facts and charts including the use of the best of weapons against them: THEIR OWN WORDS!

    TO BUSHLIKESDICK12 :

    So you disected all of them with one stroke…

    Your admirable dexterity would be the envy of JACK THE RIPPER indeed..

    It is of course water under the bridge but allow me to say that not everything you point out to is that cut and dry as you want to present it..

    To begin with, if the GOP would have chosen ROMNEY or even HUCKABEE as Presidential candidate instead of washed out McCain, I swear any of them would have wiped the floor with this parachutist demagogue who, in all honesty, is just full -of-you-know-what, having as he does in his speeches, nothing but a diarrhea of words with constipation of ideas…

    As to the war, while the coalition forces in general and the Americans in particular
    keep on fighting hamstrung by the stupid war regulations against an enemy that doesn't respect any, there is no end to the war and I dare say, if WWII would have been fought with the same stupidity it is been carried out nowadays, rest assured we would still be fighting Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan to this day…

    However, there is no worse deaf than he who doesn't want to hear or a blind than he who doesn't want to see and this is the problem with all of you DEMOCRAPS and the morons who followed your preachings…

    Nevertheless, your stupidity is paying of, as you forgot the words of the most eminent Republican that ever was :

    YOU CAN FOOL SOME OF THE PEOPLE SOME OF THE TIME BUT YOU CAN'T FOOL ALL OF THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME…

    Last two gubernatorial elections backfired on you in spite of the MESSIAH medling
    in N. Jersey and coming next Congressional elections, you will kiss your majority
    goodbye and then we will see how the ANNOITED ONE and his clique are going to fare

    Happy New Year to both Glenn Beck and David Horowtiz, and thanks for their courage and insight. Together they were the earthquake which made the ocean roil, and when the tsunami breaks, it will wash away the petty despots and their web of lies. I agree. Many others have done their share (lets not forget VDH, Krauthammer, Steyn, the gallant women of the Right: Coulter (a national treasure), & Malkin, Carol Platt Lebeau was sounding the alarm early too… so were Hugh Hewitt, & Dennis Prager, and many more.) But Beck, with, courage, determination, and a dash of showmanship – MADE people pay attention.

    re: Laimbaughs words:

    “…So I’m thinking of replying to the guy, “Okay, I’ll send you a response, but I don’t need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.” (interruption) What are you laughing at? See, here’s the point. Everybody thinks it’s outrageous to say. Look, even my staff, “Oh, you can’t do that.” Why not? Why is it any different, what’s new, what is unfair about my saying I hope liberalism fails? Liberalism is our problem. Liberalism is what’s gotten us dangerously close to the precipice here. Why do I want more of it?… ”
    — fat man

    Unless you can prove otherwise through the total context by providing the intire script, it is clear that his staff was laughing because of his lack of thought through his mouth at the time. They weren't laughing at what he said per say as much as laughing at him and his lack of tact and discretion and decency. He doesn't say “policies” or even “liberal policies” but rather he back peddles a few sentences later as he realizes that he needs to pin his lack of discretion on liberalism rather than the Presidency of the United States.

    No, it is clear, Limbaugh made a slip and let the truth out in regards to his character — he hopes “America” will fail because he doesn't agree with America's choice of direction in resolving the huge messs that our predecessor left us in.

    There is no misunderstanding here and don't try to sugar coat his words with an outright distortion Brady — he wants the President to fail and therefore he wants America to fail.

    That is no suprise but rather shocking that he is stupid enought to say out loud what we already know. — that the far right is the enemy of the American people.

    Nobody elected Rush for anything and he will never reach anywhere except where he is now.

    Ronald Reagan was a radio host once but the level of character between the men is like night and day.

  • bushlikesdick12

    You put Cheney and Reagan in the same catagory? What a joke.

    The same thing was true of Limbaugh when he started out. It took him a while to get his intellectual legs under him, or perhaps to develop a staff that could give him the information he needed to be the force he is now.

    What makes Beck different is that he admits that he was a lightweight at the beginning, while Rush always touts how correct and informed he is. Beck still says that he has a lot to learn. This makes him likely to continue to improve. He also has a good back up team, including Pat Gray, who I am familiar with from his time on Houston area radio. He is smart and funny, with a great set of vocal skills.

    I would not underestimate Beck's potential.

    I'm not always a fan of Beck's antics/act (aka STYLE) but nobody can deny the enormous value of information Glenn provides daily. His books are a storehouse of fact and truth and it will be these along with Common Sense that help reestablish conservative on the path to Freedom, Liberty and Happiness.

    Glenn Beck is America's “Everyman” symbol, because he has used his God-given “smarts” to become a self-educated, well-informed everyday CITIZEN who sincerely speaks “for and to” Americans from his heart-felt love of our America.

    As a former World/American History & Civics teacher, I am troubled that the youth of today who will become some of the leaders in the future are so uninformed. Glenn Beck encourages every Mom, Dad, Grandparent, Uncle, Aunt and “brave educator”, and Youth of today to “Question Boldly and Speak Fearlessly” and learn “The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution” so they understand the Founding Fathers who literally gave their lives to insure America's principles, based on Judeo-Christian values of law and order and guaranteed rights and freedoms for the individual, WILL (should) endure through every trial, assault, and outright attack from enemies of FREEDOM.

    Glenn Beck speaks directly to the people and challenges all of us to be involved and become educated in every way possible so we can protect our liberties now and for tomorrow. He's a great choice for FrontPageMag “Man of the Year”. Every “common sense” person and true conservative can and should “Thank Beck” for enlightening and awakening us from complacency. We must “Never Give Up or Give In” to the “Big Government Knows Best” mentality of DC and the Adm of the POTUSA! NEVER! Thank-you. JudyBeth

    Good choice & Beck has worked long hours just to bring corruption to the Obama run media. I hope you have informed him of his award so that it will encourage him to continue forward through the 2010 & 2012 elections because Americans are fed up with the courrpt system.

    For anyone who enjoys reading a political thriller, I just read a new, underground book just out about a small town in America that stands up to federal tyranny & corrupt politicians & ends up starting the 2nd American Revolution. It could be our hometown. Anyway, it's perfect for 2010 & what's coming at us. I recommend it.

    Movement-style conservatives need to keep a wary eye on Beck. He has a populist-flavored tinge that could be the idea-germ that will destroy the ability of conservatives to govern again for a generation.

    By this, I mean that he seems to be a “Pox on Both Your Houses” type, that could encourage the Tea Party Americans to branch out on their own, and siphon votes from the Republican Party, as a sort of neo-Perot movement. And we all know how effective THAT was. Bill Clinton, call your office.

    Rather, it is plain that, in order to govern, Conservatives need to invade the Republican Party, take it over, and recolonize it the way Reagan and Laxalt did in the late 1970's. In 1977, Reagan said something along the lines of “not wanting a third party, but a revitalized New Republican Party, a Conservative Republican Party”. This is the way to win, not by taking your football and going home. Beck seems to enjoy jostling the wet cement of politics, and watching were it settles out.

    Further, Beck plagiarizes broad swaths of his commentary from true conservative lights such as Mark Levin without attribution (for example, Levin was talking about Cass Sunstein and the pumped-up 45 million-Americans-without-health-insurance bit over a year ago, items Mr. Levin discovered through vigorous research).

    I hope that solid conservatives such as Sarah Palin are not persuaded by this Beck-flavored crap that Republicans and Democrats are one in the same, with nary a shade of difference between them. We must kick the “moderate” (read “liberal”) elements out of the party, make it an institution of thoroughgoing, traditional conservatism, and then set out to destroy the Democrat party. Pure and simple. I am not sure Glen Beck is much of a Pied Piper on this score. Sorry.

I am also a twenty year vet of the USAF and appreciate so much the work and attention Glenn has shown our ladies and gentlemen who proudly serve this country everyday and if there hand is out its just to shake yours. It really all boils down to common sense and Glenn is loaded with it. “We the People” ARE judge and jury when it comes to our representitives in Washington.

  • USMCSniper

    This needs a massive movement to make it law of the land.

    The Enumerated Pow­ers Act (H.R. 1359) would require all legislation introduced in Congress to “contain a concise and definite statement of the constitutional authority” empowering Congress to enact it.[1] Bills lacking such a statement or containing one of questionable merit would be subject to challenge by point of order, a procedural device to delay consideration until the problem is corrected or the objection overruled.

    For a Congress that routinely disregards the Con­stitution's limits on its powers, however, the Act would hardly be innocuous. Indeed, it would empower those few Members of Congress willing to stand up and call attention to Congress's routine dis­regard of the Constitution's division of powers, espe­cially its limitations on federal power. No wonder, then, that the proposal, introduced each session by Representative John Shadegg (R–AZ) since 1995, has gone precisely nowhere and makes its first appear­ance in the Senate, courtesy of Senator Tom Coburn (R–OK), only this year (S. 3159).

  • Steven Brady

    I take it, by what you have said, that you define “Fascism” as “journalism that is not controlled by the State”, is this so?

    Since Mr. Bushlikesdick hasn't reported in, yet, I thought that I might give you a little guidance on your spelling, in the spirit of being fair and balanced:

    The word “your”, used in the context of your post, is obviously a contraction, and should have been spelled, “You're still …”. If this is too difficult, you could use the two words separately, as in “You are still …”.

    If you can accept this friendly correction, then we can move on with the discussion …

    … By the way, what was so funny?

  • Steven Brady

    I hope that the Enumerated Powers Act can be enacted, at some point in the future. However, there will have to be a new majority in Congress and a new President to make it a reality. From the quality of your posts, I'm sure that you already know this.

    God knows that I would fight for this Act with every resource at my disposal, if it were only possible.

    That would make the Iraqi and Afghanistan war illegal — there are no grounds for war against countries that have not threatened our national security. The acts of individuals in a militia that knows no political borders creates a problem for your so-call solution to an intrusive government.

    re: definition of a troll:

    In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response[1] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[2]

    and where do you fit in that definition?

  • bushlikesdick12

    I also agree — except you left out some of my favorites:

    Mark Foley
    U.S. Representative
    (September 28, 2006)

    The Crime: Sending sexually laced, gramatically challenged instant messages and e-mails to teenaged boys in the Congressional page program for more than 10 years.

    The Hypocrisy: Chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children. One of the foremost opponents of child pornography in the Senate.

    The Quote: “get a ruler and measure it for me”

    Ted Haggard
    Leader of the National Association of Evangelicals
    (November 2006)

    The Crime: Paying male prostitutes for sex and snorting crystal meth.

    The Hypocrisy: A powerful force in the evangelical movement, Haggard participated in weekly meetings with President George Bush and top advisors where he gave spiritual advice. He taught that homosexuality was an abomination and actively lobbied against gay rights.

    The Quote: “I did not have a homosexual relationship with a man in Denver.”

    The Video:

    ——————————————————————————–

    Larry Craig
    U.S. Senator
    Senate Liason for Mitt Romney’s Presidential Campaign
    (June 11, 2007)

    The Crime: Soliciting sex from an undercover cop in an airport bathroom

    The Hypocrisy: Craig twice voted against adding the words “sexual orientation” to the federal hate crimes law. Craig also voted to give states the right to refuse to recognize gay marriage–a right they already had, but the Senator wanted to really, really prove he didn’t like gay people.

    The Quote: “I am not gay, I don’t do these kinds of things.”

    The Video:

    ——————————————————————————–

    Bob Allen
    Member of the Florida House of Representatives
    Florida Chairman of John McCain’s Presidential Campaign
    (July 11, 2007)

    The Crime: Offering an undercover cop $20 to allow Allen to blow him in a men’s room in a public park. After being arrested, Allen tried to explain that he only offered to blow the cop because the cop was a “burly black man” and he “didn’t want to become a statistic.”

    The Hypocrisy: Allen was one of 21 Florida legislators to sign Gov. Jeb Bush’s friend-of-the-court brief supporting the state’s ban on gays adopting children, and he co-sponsored an unsuccessful bill that would have enhanced penalties for “offenses involving unnatural and lascivious acts” such as indecent exposure.

    The Quote: “I certainly wasn’t there to have sex with anybody and certainly wasn’t there to exchange money for it.”

    The Video:

    ——————————————————————————–

    Glenn Murphy Jr.
    National Chairman of the Young Republicans
    Chairman of the Clark County Republican Party
    (July 28, 2007)

    The Crime: Murphy got a fellow Young Republican drunk and then spent the night at his house. The other young man woke up in the middle of the night to find Murphy giving him mouth-to-penis resuscitation. After this incident, a 1998 sexual battery report came to light in which Murphy was alleged to have done the exact same thing.

    The Hypocrisy: Murphy was a well-paid political consultant for Republican candidates and often advised them to use gay marriage as a wedge issue to paint their opponents as out of touch with traditional values.

    The Quote: “I was in the Sound of Music in High School…don’t ask” (from his now-defunct Myspace page.)

    The Video: Unfortunately, the Young Republicans took down all of their videos of Mr. Murphy. So instead, I give you:

    12/01/2009 at 8:27 amTop 10 Democrat Sex Scandals in Congress
    10/03/2006

    Information compiled from the Washington Post, “Congressional Sex Scandals in History,” and other sources.

    10. Sen. Daniel Inouye. The 82-year-old Hawaii Democrat was accused in the 1990s by numerous women of sexual harassment. Democrats cast doubt on the allegations and the Senate Ethics Committee dropped its investigation.

    9. Former Rep. Gus Savage. The Illinois Democrat was accused of fondling a Peace Corps volunteer in 1989 while on a trip to Africa. The House Ethics Committee decided against disciplinary action in 1990.

    8. Rep. Barney Frank. The outspoken Massachusetts Democrat hired a male prostitute who ran a prostitution service from Frank’s residence in the 1980s. Only two Democrats in the House of Representatives voted to censure him in 1990.

    7. Former Sen. Brock Adams. The late Washington Democrat was forced to stop campaigning after numerous accusations of drugging, assault and rape, the first surfacing in 1988.

    6. Former Rep. Fred Richmond. This New York Democrat was arrested in 1978 for soliciting sex from a 16-year-old. He remained in Congress and won re-election—before eventually resigning in 1982 after pleading guilty to tax evasion and drug possession.

    5. Former Rep. John Young. The late Texas Democrat increased the salary of a staffer after she gave in to his sexual advances. The congressman won re-election in 1976 but lost two years later.

    4. Former Rep. Wayne Hays. The late Ohio Democrat hired an unqualified secretary reportedly for sexual acts. Although he resigned from Congress, the Democratic House leadership stalled in removing him from the Administration Committee in 1976.

    3. Former Rep. Gerry Studds. He was censured for sexual relationship with underage male page in 1983. Massachusetts voters returned him to office for six more terms.

    2. Former Rep. Mel Reynolds. The Illinois Democrat was convicted of 12 counts of sexual assault with a 16-year-old. President Bill Clinton pardoned him before leaving office.

    1. Sen. Teddy Kennedy. The liberal Massachusetts senator testified in defense of nephew accused of rape, invoking his family history to win over the jury in 1991.

    Brian McDonough says:
    12/04/2009 at 10:57 amHere’s how you miss the point: Many a Republican, and specifically many of the conservatives caught in the gay sex scandals, are people who have crusaded against gay rights, have held out homosexuality to be “deviant” and “a sin,” and promoted a general sex-negative agenda including insistence on abstinence as the only sexual option outside monogamous heterosexual marriage. And THEN they do this shit.

    The scandals you point out represent deplorable behavior, yes. But John’s point was not that only Republicans are guilty of sexual misconduct. His point was, they crusade for a rigid, horrible and intolerant sexual “morality” that they do not, themselves, live behind closed doors. Of public rest room stalls.

    So your response to John’s point, which may be paraphrased as “Republican anti-sex crusaders are repressed hypocrites,” amounts to, “Nah-nah, Democrats can be sexual criminals and/or weasels too!” Which, while true, misses John’s point.

    Also, how the hell did you miss Gary Condit during that little research project of yours?

    William says:
    12/07/2009 at 6:23 amBarney Frank – Democrat – U.S. Representative from Massachusetts from 1981 to present. Admitted to having paid Stephen L. Gobie, a male prostitute, for sex and subsequently hiring Gobie as his personal assistant. Gobie used the congressman’s Washington apartment for prostitution. A move to expel Frank from the House of Representatives failed and a motion to censure him failed.

    James McGreevey – Democrat – New Jersey Governor . Admitted to having a gay affair. Resigned after allegations of sexual harassment, rumors of being blackmailed on top of fundraising investigations and indictments.

    Rev Jesse Jackson – Democrat – Democratic candidate for President. Admitted to having an extramarital affair and fathering a illegitimate child.

    They are all criminals anyways!

    Ryunkin says:
    12/08/2009 at 5:10 pmI really think that you miss the point. The problem isn’t a sexual indescretion, as long as it’s legal, but rather the hypocrisy of someone who rails against others for doing the same thing that he’s guilty of.

    Barney Frank is an avowed homosexual and has never hidden the fact. That he got caught up in the shenanegans of his housemate is unfortunate, even if it is somewhat predictable for a man as busy as he is to not notice what’s going on in a house that he merely sleeps. I believe that’s why so many stay-at-home moms get away with cheating on their husbands so easily.

    There was also never any claim that he was personally involved in the scandal. The man obviously took advantage of Mr. Frank.

    Another website mentions a Republican state congresswoman who also was involved in the same type of scandal regarding an employee of hers and I thought it was unfair to criticize her for it.

    Orwell says:
    12/08/2009 at 6:51 pmYeah, but most Democrats aren’t against GAY RIGHTS. The point is the hypocrisy. Not the fact that they had sex.

In a recent letter published by UVA’s Cavalier Daily, I pointed out the hypocrisy of the National Marriage Project which is run by W. Bradford Wilcox. The NMP conducts research on marriage, but completely ignores the issue of gay marriage, while also claiming to be nonpartisan and nonsectarian. The NMP tactic is painfully obvious: Stifle the debate on gay marriage by simply not talking about it. This is intellectual hypocrisy at it’s worst guise. When will the Republican Party realize that fanatical Social Conservatism is contrary to the fundamental American ideals of Freedom of Speech and Religon.

    And grace? What lack of grace are you referring to?

    I agree with you that everyone here are losers that have a problem with opinions that are other than parrot statements of the articles at hand.

    The problem here is that you started your opinion in an Ad Homien fashion which invited numnuts here to counter attack you by playing spell checker.

    If you would have rebutted the subject at hand, then numnuts would still have to resort to being a spell checker because he doesn't know how to make a reasonable counter rebuttal and his level of education is that of a 11th grader or below. — he obviously hasn't obtained the necessary skills to apply logic or reasoning but rather merely knows how to use spell check in MS Word.

    I know, you and I don't have the time and aspiration to appease people who need exact spelling and grammar to understand basic logic but even if you made your English impeccable, he still wouldn't get it.

    Don't worry about your spelling/grammar or their competence — just keep your eye on the constant bullshit in the articles at hand.

    What, precisely, was the “constant bull****” in the article at hand?” Is there a precise example to which the brilliant, statesman-like journal-keeper can point?

    This “stream-of-conscience” dialog between the Intellectual Giants “ndbltwy” and “bushlikes****12″ is truly stimulating and edifying. Also, it was very revealing and illustrative of why most normal Americans are repelled by the Stalinist/Maoist Radical Obama Left: These extreme leftists are filled with a venomous hatred they cannot control. Frequently, when their veil of tight-lipped, wafer-thin elitism lifts, this hatred and rage spills out of their mouths like a backed-up sump-crock. For daily examples of this phenomenon, just watch a few moments of spiteful trolls like Kieth Oberlman (or however the heck he spells his name), Al Franken, Rachel Maddow, and, of course, you can read it on anonymous posts like the one from the Mr. Bushlikes****12.

    These leftist attacks generally call people vile names (even going so far as to change their own sobriquets to reflect their vileness), and then start in on the Tourettes-like yelping about “corporations” (completely unmindful of the fact that corporations are composed of living, breathing people), the venerable Fox News (-again, another corporation that employs thousands of people of all political stripes), Dick Cheney and so forth. They have no compelling arguments beyond sticking to their Dickensonian 18-century class-envy political guns (hence, the Personality Cult that grew up around Barack Obama without any intellectual curiosity, and the crowds of brown-shirts chanting “Yes We Can! Yes We Can!) and demonizing entire classes of people as “numnuts” (which, one assumes, actually is supposed to be “numb-nuts”).

    This is why these folks are rightly categorized as Stalinists: They single out broad swaths of humanity, de-humanized them, attempt to stigmatize them, and make them the “enemy of progress”. The only thing Mr. Bushlikes****12 is lacking is a gulag into which he can throw us dissidents.

    Which is why normal, liberty-loving Americans will rise up in 303 days and take back their nation.

    As much as I like Beck (and I do!) I have to say that some of his “solutions” disturb me. Populism or third Party ism is a failed proposition in the history of our republic. While Beck is right on in his exposure of the far left's insidious connections (undoubtedly with a huge assist from David Horowitz) I believe he is very dependent on some work done over the years by others and is more the “vehicle” than the true exposer of this mess in Washington. My man of the last 3 years (and I use three years for a reason-Obama's rise) has to be Sean Hannity- and I have historically not been a big fan of Hannity as I always felt he was a little bombastic in the past. But he was on top of Jeremiah Wright (and was literally the only one willing to expose himself at the time and took GREAT GRIEF for it) and the connections which turned out to be hugely true at a time when he was pillioried for such attacks as a racist and an evil man- what he did was VERY courageous. I can't end this without mentioning another individual one I know this site and Beck doesn't enjoy hearing (why? not sure) MARK LEVIN. Levin was obscure and though his talk show at the time was growing (it is now literally the FASTEST growing talk show in the country and has overtaken huge markets like LA wherein certain shows who have been in existence for years are now behind him!) he published a book that you literally had to get on a waiting list to receive- LIBERTY AND TYRANNY- and he was no Palin or Beck with huge name recognition when he penned it yet it shot up to #1 on NYT bestsellers and all others for months on end. Levin is an acquired taste and is the least politically correct individual in the long list of conservatives. I believe not mentioning him is huge oversite.

  • ndbltwy

    The preceeding commercial was bought to yo by our sponsors Corporate America, where like all good sheep we'll slaughter you in the end. So all you rightwingnuts out there keep listening to over inflated gas bags like the one above and watch your standard of living fall to that of an up and coming chinese peasant.

    He calls himself a “dissident” while cheerleading for the Bush years loses an election and can't stop his crying and really thinks Obama a stalinist/maoist… this just proves what an unthinking a-hole he really is.

    Good Day!!!

    First of all, great post John. It is a good note on which to end this discussion. Every time I check on my email, I find fifty million responses…mostly to the vulgarly-named bushlovesdick. BTW, is this person a nymphomaniac advertising her situation? There are just so many ways you can take that moniker. Basically, this person reminds me of certain children I've had in class who will do anything to get the attention they so crave. Oppositional Defiance Disorder also comes to mind. I say let's ignore him/her. Winter Break is nearly at an end, and hopefully, this adolescent will be too busy to aggravate us with his/her absurd posts.

  • WFB2

    As the saying goes “different strokes for different folks”. The Conservative voices you mention tap into different audiences which is good – the more the better. I got on board years ago reading Bill Buckley (“Up From Liberalism”) and his National Review. Excellent stuff but in that era its readership would fit in a phone booth with room to spare. It was too “highbrow” for the mass of voters. Limbaugh came along and changed everything so the beat goes on – thankfully!

  • USMCSniper

    You said that “That would make the Iraqi and Afghanistan war illegal” – Yes it would under this law because the authorization would require a declaration of war – meaning when and if whenever in the future we decide to go to war, it can only be with a formal declaration of war (or retalliation to an attack), not as a police action, not as a peace keeping mission, and definitely not for the purpose of nation building. The rest of you agrumnt is invalid, as the Taliban and Al Qaeda in Afghanistan definitely threatened our national security as did Iraq under Saddam, as does Iran with their nuclear weapons program and their proxy terrorists Hizbolla and Hamas. As for the rest of your post, it is still the standard mindless leftist babblesquawk I come to expect from an intellectual deficient like you!.

  • Collinsdad

    No, my point is about giving credit where credit is due. Hannity and Levin were far ahead of Horowitz and Beck. Hey I love Horowitz-but he was writing about Obama Derangement syndrome in April and is now 180 degrees removed from that. He even admits that he was slow to the punch with Obama. Beck has even taken stuff from Levin without giving him credit. As far as as many voices out there as possible being good- I agree totally- but my point wasn't about that. I am 54 yrs. old and watched Buckley for years but knew that the masses weren't going to watch “Firing Line”- but the comparison to what Levin did in '09 isn't a correct analogy- Levin was a huge splash ( his book title Liberty and Tryanny was even a huge part of the tea party movement and a phrase seen on placards all over) and the MSM ignored him like the plague even the though his book was an unbelievable story. Sorry to say the right has kind of shorted him as well. So I stick to my guns . So it has really nothing to do with “different strokes for different folks”.

  • bushlikesdick12

    What are you talking about?

    First of all, the constitution makes no reference to the statement of Congress declaring war.

    The constitution does distinguish our right to defend our borders.

    Based on your construed Libertarian idea that the Govt is only to provide an Army to defend border means we can't declare war or spend money on expensive arsenal to fight foreign wars that don''t fit in the catagory of defending our borders.

    Defending our borders doesn't include many of Israel's enemies and people that are pissed off in general for exploiting thier resources.

    Not that I have a problem with exploiting resources as to say this is necessary for our mere survival — we depend on oil and other resources outside of our borders for our way of life.

    Your idea works against your special interests as well as the special interest of Liberals so stop talking out of the side of your mouth and pretending like you don't see my point.

    You are evading my rebuttal with babbling nonsense — fight like a man and address the rebuttal.

  • bushlikesdick12

    Oppositional defiant disorder is described by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as an ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior toward authority figures which goes beyond the bounds of normal childhood behavior. People who have it may appear very stubborn.

    And who is the authority here? You?

    I'm the one on the subject in the classroom here Ms Elizbeth (teacher)– not you.

    Maybe you are confusing Oppositional Defiance Disorder with your students just being generally pissed off by your persistance of giving idiotic labeling lessons instead of sticking to the lesson plan.

    So what is great about John's post? Or is that really the subject here?

    You are confusing the classroom Ms. Elisabeth.

    My wife & I are BIG fans of Mark Levin. It was Rush who brought Levin out of the shadows of his Landmark Legal Foundation and got him started on radio I believe. My only point was that Conservative radio/TV now has numerous personalities which have large followings and all of whom are dissed by the MarxStreamMedia. Horowitz & Levin are the more intellectual; Hannity & Beck more populist and Rush is in a class by himself – what he does is amazing.
    Horowitz' s strength is his remarkable journey, his knowledge of leftist pathology and his ability to put it all into writing. His books are excellent and have an educational value and a permanence which sets him apart from Talk Radio. He too is an 'unperson' to the leftist academics and literary establishment which lacks the intelligence to do anything but ignore him or call him names.
    So, for the first time in history the impotent wimps on the Left are forced to squirm and curse those who now, on a daily basis, show them to be the arrogant fools that they are. Enjoy!

  • eerie steve

    I get it with beck. Yes okay, all you needed to be conservative man of the year in 2009 was production and values.

    Me? Since we have this theoretical black president who is no longer living up to the Satanic values bestowed upon his race by such great leftist leaders like Desmond Tutu and Malcolm X, I would say the executive producer of HBO's The Wire should win Horowitz's man of the year. Yes I know it is cancelled, but literally, that show was prophetic.

    “No barak. Really. you're in charge now.”

    WACK!

    (Hippy liberal slimebag is taken out and eaten by the Obama monster)

    heh HEH (Marlo chuckle…)

    That's how you beat the left. In the baby boom generation, you called them anti-Nazis, commizairs in need of a salute which you just didn't give out.

    Me? In my generation? f@ck 'em. No really. They die for you. We are well past that era of “domestic” relations with the Republican party. You've won. We have “moved on” to an international party. Just bring out the theoretical bear jew and feed lesser leftists to it already god damnit I got places to go, things to see….

    And guess who gets the blame when things go wrong? The pretty smart ones who we strategically place in the dam with the finger caught in the dyke. Forget disent. How about the people who wanted to be human shields for friggin Saddam Hussein of all people. Hey Barak, I don't see them doing it for you! Bring back selective indentured servitude and let's drain the swamp in Columbia. Heck I'm down if you let me chew the leaf and give me a fleet of helicopters.

    Garth Ennis quivers under his bed if the war on terror moves to china. Fuck it. I say right now there is strategic gains to be made if we strategic inflate China's currency. They are already killing their own. How about those Moslem wiggers? They deserve Man of the year. And I say the Palin presidency starts with a broken china.

    That's the liberal conunumdrum. No way can the problem of evil be solved so simply by moving stuff onto other people. Heck not only did God make Satan take the rap for all that was wrong, he set it up so he planned it from the start, and did no work, but somehow got work-tired better than you. I say the best way to fix the War on Moslems and oh yeah North Korea, is to end the Cold War with fake China by introducing what derives from Marx.

    To god, everything is Satanic, and that is only to be handed out by one person via one man. Guess who that is? It ain't Barak.

    And yes, the papacy has done it before and the Russians where much more barbaric than the Chinese. I say lay low, keep giving conservatives an outlet, and really ratchet it up for Barak. Play out of Dante or Milton. Barak entered the first layer of hell in 2008, apparent pain. His second layer ended with his trip to Hawaii, apparent pain w. glimmer of hope.

    There will be 8 layers. View it as a gift from the neo cons to the hippies. Look! Here's something better than JFK! And he get's 8 years…

    oooooooohhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    …but you. You just wait for when Dick Marcinko gets holds of the unions.

  • johncarens

    Greetings… Mr. A-Hole speaking!

    I knew this gentle fellow would reply with all the intellectual firepower he could muster… and came roaring back with the typical modern American leftist-radical damp squib of name-calling, vulgarity, and Tourettes-reflex gibberish about, of course, “corporations”. For good measure, he's thrown in the other bogey-man in the Liberal/Statist closet: the “Bush Years”. Judging by this man's obsession with George Bush (I assume, of course, that President Bush is the taproot of Mr. Nbdltwy's neurosis), I can only imagine his white-hot rage toward the former president blinded the man to point where he couldn't even discern the fact I NEVER MENTIONED PRESIDENT BUSH, OR HIS ADMINISTRATION in my post.

    Oh, well. Perhaps Mr. Nbdltwy and I will meet one day, out in the rice paddies he speaks about, and we can discuss his rage. That's where we're headed, once everything has been nationalized, and everything has been rendered “fair”.

    Good day to you, as well, kind sir.

  • Collinsdad

    Very good analysis of these guys. I certainly have nothing against any of them. I just pray the 2010 elections are the beginning of the end for this socialistic nightmare- we certainly have an arsenal in place to stop the bleeding.

  • lilium479

    The left couldn't find its ass with both hands.
    If there is a no crime then it's hypocrisy. If there is no hypocrisy, but a crime then it doesn't matter. If there are no facts then it's the seriousness of the charge. If leaked emails blow up the global warming hoax go after the hackers. If the NYT prints national security info then throw the confetti.
    Hypocrisy is the Left's first middle and last name. They could not exist without HATE.
    Theirs is the party of hate but equally.
    Good choice Glenn deserves it!

  • rvreugde

    Every circus has its clowns.
    Every garden has its weeds.
    The fact that you can find hypocrits in the Liberal or Conservative ranks doesn't automatically discredit the overall message of either.
    It is like someone going to a gym, seeing some fat people working out (as there are at the gym I go to) and then touting that as “proof” that exercise doesn't help you lose weight.

  • ndbltwy

  • Steven Brady

    Brought to “yo”? Nevertheless, I shall allow you to typo, misspell, and savage English grammar to your heart's content. The Left patronizes and condescends to us poor, ignorant people on the Right continually. Perhaps, it will be refreshing for us on the Right to see the Left as it really is. Go to a public school, did you?

    Considering “Corporate America”, haven't you noticed the rather large number of billionaires who brought Obama and the DEMs to power?

    However, you need to do some more reading. If you do, read the works of Saul Alinsky. Alinsky was definitely a Maoist, emphasizing chaos and perpetual revolution.

    Mr. Alinsky wanted to turn his entire organization over to his most promising disciple, a young lady by the name of Hillary Rodham. However, Ms. Rodham decided that the revolution could best be made possible from the inside, rather than as a continual outsider.

    Alinsky may have ended his work as a minor footnote in history, had it not been for Barack Hussein Obama. The Community-Organizer-in-Chief is … as we chat so pleasantly … creating the chaos and perpetual revolution that he learned from Alinsky, and taught at the University of Chicago.

    Stalinism is a more authoritarian version of what Alinsky wanted, and so it is too early to call Obama a “Stalinist”. However, Alinsky was a disciple of Mao, and Obama is a disciple of Alinsky, and therefore, a Maoist.

    Stalin's tactics will come into play, later, when Obama learns – shockingly – that not everyone in America believes him to be their Messiah.

    Cheers!

    A point of order:

    I was not (necessarily) referring to President Obama as a Stalinist. This gives him both too must credit in terms of his goal-setting, and too much intellectual firepower to effect those goals. Stalin was a monster; the President is a pipsqueak.

    President Obama is a second-rate mind infected by the leftist chic found in student and faculty lounges of America's universities. He has the depth of a mud puddle, as is evidences by his total lack of creativity or of genuine self-effacing humor, and his crutch-like reliance on the jargon du jour (“transparancy”, “diversity”, “relational” and so on). He's not offered a single original thought in his entire career, and has farmed out his political philosophy to those extreme leftists that I am not at all convinced he has even studied. He allows Pelosi and Reid to fundamentally take the lead, and blames everyone around him (mostly his predecessors) for his mistakes.

    Like most back-bench young State Legislators, he just likes to be watched, be important, and have people talk about him. He is the White Rock girl, studying his own reflection. He has absolutely no substance beyond the ability to articulately parrot the politically trendy.

    The people around him, though (Axlerod, Emanuel, Pelosi, etc.) ARE Stalinists. If anything, President Obama is Walter Durante to the folks.

    Which, of course, makes him no less dangerous, however.

    Saul Alinsky when asked during an interview whether he ever considered becoming a communist party member, he replied:

    “Not at any time. I've never joined any organization — not even the ones I've organized myself. I prize my own independence too much. And philosophically, I could never accept any rigid dogma or ideology, whether it's Christianity or Marxism. One of the most important things in life is what Judge Learned Hand described as 'that ever-gnawing inner doubt as to whether you're right.' If you don't have that, if you think you've got an inside track to absolute truth, you become doctrinaire, humorless and intellectually constipated. The greatest crimes in history have been perpetrated by such religious and political and racial fanatics, from the persecutions of the Inquisition on down to Communist purges and Nazi genocide.”

    Forsmark, now that you have finished swallowing Beck's load, it is time to move on to bigger things.

  • eerie Steve

    Hey, I here what you are saying, but really, this is the right attitude to take:

    Obama's personality really isn't that tyrannically. If you lived through the Clinton years, these are the puppy years. Try more like the old pappy on the Chicago train station who basically sells filet mignon for a $1.00 a pound out the back because he set fire to the front. Really, the going is friggin great if you know where to get it.

    Oh, and just to show I'm not going liberal, what is the difference to a liberal between 50 million liberated Moslems, 50 million Democrats with free healthcare, and a pile of Jewish corpses 2 million deep?

    Well without god in the equation its all just carbon, however you may only talk the healthcare, and not the people the healthcare artificially keeps alive, and oh yeah the 50 million liberated Moslems were just part of the wasted decade.

    You know, that's another point. Really, just to whom are we giving this free health care? Suge Knight? Marlo Stanfield? Dr. Claw who really wants to 'get those joes!”

    Hell, the at-home stem cell researcher is the only thing missing from the American ghetto today, and now we got it thanks to Obama. Can you imagine like a 10 ft tall Marshall Mathers who is genetically bred to be bullet proof? There are animal hides which can stop small caliber bullets and polar bear skulls which can withstand a 50 cal pistol blast. Hell, we are not too far away from the era of the super-wigger all thanks to Barak.

  • eerie Steve

    Oh, please don't tell me we are starting a flame war on disquis?

    How about this, I will 'swallow Beck's load' once you prove to me Barak's healthcare plan won't lead to a new generation of supercharged gang bangers when his plan is put on whatever slippery slope you're on.

  • eerie Steve

    Shit how about this just of the top of my head:

    FDR: Pretty much let a WWII occur so he could enact communist policy in the United States

    JFK and RFK: Union mob bosses who almost got the US blown away because they wanted the mob to have Cuba

    Jimmy Carter: Singlehandly ruined the career of America's greatest warrior, Commander Dick Marcinko, and then threw him in prison not only as a rat, but a cop rat.

    Bill Clinton: Did what JFK did, twice. Once he lost the nuclear football, the other Boris Yeltsin really was ready to nuke the US. Oh, and under whose presidency did Mohammed Atta enter the country?

    The best thing is when there is a Hawkish Democrat with a Republican Congress. Bottom line, and I wish Barak the best, and he will have my vote if he just doesn't get us blown to bits, but you cannot seriously go toe to toe on executive credentials and rep vs. Dem. You loose. Period. You need the course of history on your side, and even then you fail miserably.

    Barak gets one term. I will listen to him and review what he did, but right now it seems that having a diverse cabinet with many different ideas should have taken a back seat to “my party has a horrible track record on base executive function, let's try to fix it.”

  • bushlikesdick12

    eerie fits your personification perfectly — your response is so weird it is eerie to say the least:

    re:
    FDR: Pretty much let a WWII occur so he could enact communist policy in the United States

    WTF?

    If I may participate in your freaking logic:

    It was Republican Hoover that suggested that FDR should run the country for 12 years of progressive policies by sitting back as a do nothing President on economic solutions ( lessons Bush apparantly took with heart) So really — it was Hoover and the Republican Party that promoted Socialism just as the Bush Administration did with his head start $700 billion stimulus bank bonus. No no — in your la la land — it would be Hoover.

    JFK and RFK: Union mob bosses who almost got the US blown away because they wanted the mob to have Cuba

    Blown away? Oh yes — he also used our Navy to escort Soviet ships equipped to supply nukes to Cuba to really blow our shit all over the continent. But for some reason, Kruchev took it as a trick and diverted the precious supplies back even without a single Cuban Cigar in return.

    Jimmy Carter: Singlehandly ruined the career of America's greatest warrior, Commander Dick Marcinko, and then threw him in prison not only as a rat, but a cop rat.

    That isn't what happened and you know it:

    This team tested the security of naval bases, nuclear submarines, ships, civilian airports and a U.S. embassy. Marcinko was directed to use his team to test the Navy's anti-terrorist capabilities. As a result he was able to infiltrate seemingly impenetrable, highly-secured bases, nuclear submarines, ships and other purported “secure areas”, including the U.S. Presidential plane Air Force One, and disappeared without incident. When he reached Air Force One, while Carter was in the plane, Carter secretly ordered him and Rambo (Sylvestor Stallion) to single handedly recue the hostages similar to those Rambo episodes.

    During the operation, the two squabbled over who gets to fly the helicopter and the erratic movement by the helicopter scared a herd of camels thus causing a dust storm which caused the other helicopter to crash killing all the servicemen aboard. The two men continued to argue and fight over this issue all the way back to the Pentagon in which they both were ordered to spend some time in the Brig for a cooling off period.

    ( no substance to your claim on your part — just your imagination getting too far) At least I have substance with a DVD showing some episodes that can construe this theory — you have nothing.

    Bill Clinton: Did what JFK did, twice. Once he lost the nuclear football, the other Boris Yeltsin really was ready to nuke the US. Oh, and under whose presidency did Mohammed Atta enter the country?

    That's not fair!!! Who is expose to be running the immigration department when Monica is busy with Bill?

    You have a hawkish govt and President now — you are trying to compare it to the retarded hawk of the past. that isn't a fair comparison

  • gumply

    I agree Beck deserves man of the year, but what I really want to know is why no one is screaming about the vetting that Obo didn't get and no one seems to care about it.

    Why is this subject taboo? What are you people scared of? We don't know anything about this man and he is the President of this country and he is destroying it every day and we have no idea of what his czars are doing. When is someone with some guts going to rise up?

    Let me correct myself, we do know something about him and it is all bad.

  • phoebeintheforest

    Joseph Farrah at World Net Daily is doing all he can to bring the subject to light with his billboard campaign.

    It is so very odd that Obama's past is taboo as you put it. Spending nearly two million dollars to lock up all of his records…birth certificate, adoption records, passport and school records…makes it patently obvious that he is hiding something. And yet, those of us who want those records unsealed and doubt his constitutional right to be president are treated as knuckle-dragging conspiracy theorists.

    You would think some enterprising journalist would be salivating at the thought of uncovering some of these records. I mean it is potentially much bigger than Watergate or the Lewinsky scandal!

    DID YOU SEE GLENN BECK TODAY, JAN 4, 2010? HE HAS TAKEN OFF THE GLOVES!!!

    Is it any wonder why Obama, and family, left the White House during Christmas? Is it the same reason he didn't have the National Prayer Breakfast but did celebrate a Muslim holiday?

    DID YOU SEE THE BIGGOVERNMENT.COM photo, on today's Beck, of THE CHAIRMAN MAO CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENT???

    I have made it my mission to EXPOSE COMMUNISTS, including my frequent but now banned posts on Huffpo using “EXPOSINGCOMMUNISTS” as my log in name. I have been exposing them since 1986 when I attended my first “peace” meeting headed by the same person who was a member of the NM Communist Party and the head of NM Marxist Educators. I warned on talk radio and tried to get my letters printed in newspapers with none ever allowed especially at the University newspaper. Talk show hosts didn't believe me until they invited me on their show which I then brought the evidence. They then became my biggest supporters and we trapped many of these real Communists and Closet Communists live on the radio. The audience then became worried for me and if I didn't call in for a few days, they were asking at least for me to check in. I TRIED WARNING YOU ABOUT THEIR TACTICS AND GOALS! THE FOLLOWERS OF THE 80'S LEADERS ARE NOW THE LEADERS OF TODAY! IT'S TOO LATE NOW!!!

    OUR ONLY HOPE IS GLENN BECK!!!! REQUEST OF GLENN: HAVE DAVID HOROWITZ ON AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!!! IF HE'S BUSY, I'LL WALK TO NEW YORK TO BE YOUR GUEST!!!!! I NEVER PUT THE GLOVES ON!!!

  • jonbikewagon

    I first found Glenn Beck to be absolutely crazy. I was listening to what all the other media was saying about him. I had a friend that said I had to listen to a 5 minute clip of his as well as read some of his book, “arguing with idiots.” I did and I was quite impressed. He is really trying to fight the corruption in politics and I think he is a very good-willed person. I find your article in good favor in mentioning him and some of his contributions and his “rookie power”

    I certainly don't agree with everything Beck says, but his viewpoint is generally less politically motivated then the others on your list so I understand the choice. I do worry about the state of politics in this country if someone like Palin is listed here just because everyone seems to dislike her….that may be partially caused because she doesn't present herself as well versed in the issues. Before you jump on me-I'm an independent, generally unhappy with both parties.
