1. What an annoying person.
I could only make it through about 30 seconds. What is his point, if any?

I could care less about a show, but I do care about you guys and your discredited ideas. All you have is hate and stupidity and your time is over. The adults are here to clean up after and take care of you. Get lost.

6. he's right that there is a big deficit
He just doesn't understand how it happened and has no clue what to do about it.

15. I agree. Beck is a classic dry drunk with skewed thinking.

9. Beck is Without a Doubt a "Dry Drunk"
Sometimes I happen upon Beck's radio show while driving. The other day he was literally crying and ranting about the end of the world and how he is not the only one who cares and those who care should ban together and contact their congressmen. I'm sorry, I know it doesn't make a bit of sense.

10. Annoying But True
I find him terribly annoying, and I find the 'morality' charade of the right wing repugnant. But I'm sorry, he's mostly correct. He's talking about the way the treasurey and the private bank (the Fed) that controls our money supply, is doing business. The 'hockey stick' is NOT Obama's stimulus plan, or the 'bailout' even which was a red-herring. It is the several TRILLION that the FED is giving out to banks, which it won't even reveal the names of and defiantly says it doesn't have to.

Glenn is wrong about one thing, it's not 'we'. I'm not doing it. The politicians really aren't either. It is the FEDERAL RESERVE. As I state time and again, expecting them to 'fix the problem' they CREATE is like sending Godzilla to go fix the power lines. Just plain stupid. Dennis Kucinich will be the first person to actively propose a plan to shut down the Federal Reserve as we know it since JFK (and we know what happened to him for it). He's got more balls than Ron Paul. Support Dennis' plan.

11. Funny how these Republican tools never pause and explain why
It is like a baseball team talking about that 30 to nothing loss that their team suffered. But instead of saying that they were actually playing in the game, they describe it like they were watching. Pitcher: "Hey did you see how that pitcher threw 10 home runs in a row? Shameful" or the outfielder saying "Did you see how the outfielder kept dropping the ball? They should have never let him play"

I am so tired of hearing the people who were part of the problem discussing it like they were watching it on TV.

12. I refuse to watch an obvious fascist.
There is clearly something wrong with his mind. He is more like a cartoon character than a real person.

13. Note that he places the fault on the great society
Rather than all the wars that we were involved in or had just come out of in 1965.

14. How do we know he's not actually drunk?
Glenn has in the past had some problems with alcohol - conincedence?

Also, Beck's on Faux News now. Those guys all lie out of habit - from BillO's war on Christmas to Hannity's saying that the rightwing never made an issue of Obama's race to Steve Doocy saying that Fox and Friends is never over the top in its shots after making a NY Times editor's picture look like an anti-Semitic drawing. They wouldn't know truth if it punched them in the face.

16. Why does he not mention that HIS
president was the one who left us in this mess? The last month or so I've noticed right-wing radio has been blaming Obama before he ever actually took office. I'll leave off the string of profanity I feel like writing. Effing dry effing drunk! Oops couldn't stop.

17. Well see the problem was caused by the New Deal and the Great Society
and then Obama came in and made it worse by sheer mention of him even kind of remotely being president. And Al Gore is silly too. RW logic. That's an oxymoron.

18. Yep
I've noticed the same story of the "New Deal" getting a bum rap...apparently extending the 'Great Depression' at least 10 more years. These A-hole-o's and their script from some diry scummy think tank dictator. Oooooooh, they make me so mad!

19. Can you imagine if
we had allowed The Great Depression to "play out" as they had advised. Maybe the population needed thinning out, in their minds.
