Glenn Beck Live Blog and Live Chat at 5 PM ET


I’ll be live blogging Glenn Beck’s show today at 5 PM ET again. If you’re watching the show live as well – or even if you aren’t because, say, you’re at work – be sure to visit NewsReal Blog frequently throughout the show. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on it with you and other readers (and bloggers) will do so as well.

Of course we will also host a live chat. As many of you are used to by now, the chat will go live at 4:30 EST.

The subject of today’s show (as announced in the daily e-mail the team behind the show send to those who’ve signed up for it at his website): Progressive states vs. the rest – which are in the most danger of financial collapse and why?

Also today with Beck (but not per definition on the show):

Pelosi lashes out at the president Nancy Pelosi had some harsh words for the President on the lack of jobs – even though the unemployment numbers dipped slightly. Pelosi told the President he was the worst since Herbert Hoover on jobs adding, “Job losses are taking a real toll on the financial security of American families” while noting that “while the national unemployment rate dropped slightly, it still stands at a near record high.” Only one problem: these were Pelosi’s words to President Bush in 2003. Ooops. Read the full proof of hypocrisy HERE, and get Glenn’s reaction to the news of the unemployment rate dipping to 9.7% here ( Transcript, Insider Audio).

Playing the Jobs game
The economy is still shedding jobs at a disturbing rate, but that’s not stopping President Obama from trying to brag about how many jobs he’s creating or saving. It’s quite a bold attempt at spin to claim job success in the face of clear and present failure. Glenn shows how the President’s jobs record actually stacks up in the latest Beck Talks video blog.

Behar: Tebow could have been a rapist
On The View Whoopi Goldberg was wondering why anyone cared that the Tim Tebow pro-life commercial was airing during the Super Bowl — a very good observation. That’s when mental giant Joy Behar chimed in to educate the American people on why it’s offensive. She argued that, “He could just as easily have become some kind of a rapist pedophile. I mean, you don’t know what someone’s going to be.” There’s some grade A logic right there. Glenn does his best to try to keep up with the intellectually gifted Behar on radio this morning. ( Transcript, Insider Audio).

TEBOW has nothing on THESE GUYS. Check out this 1986 NFL films short on abortion. Cheesy? Yes. But it is a clear example on how far progressives have moved the bar on the public’s view on issues like abortion. WATCH

First Lady calls her kids fatties
First Lady Michelle Obama has picked childhood obesity as her issue to battle for. A noble cause, for sure, but no one expected she’d single out her kids as being obese, especially considering they don’t exactly look very big. Glenn plays the audio and reacts, then dives into a discussion on BMI. How healthy is Glenn? He goes over the disturbing numbers on radio this morning. ( Transcript, Insider Audio)

Idiots Unplugged: Indoctrination
Our kids are constantly bombarded with the progressive and liberal agenda. We’ve seen it most recently with Obama’s ‘Organizing for America’ group, who is encouraging kids to read radicals like Saul Alinsky. Your kids are prime targets for progressives as weapons against adults. OFA also made videos where kids were ‘educating’ their stupid parents on how to vote. This is what you are up against. Here’s how you defeat the idiot in your life who’s oblivious to the blatant indoctrination. Check out this FREE preview from Idiots Unplugged, the audio book of the most memorable on-air moments from the Arguing with Idiots segment of the radio program.
