Mad Man: Is Glenn Beck Bad for America?
http://www.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,192434...

snip

"Glenn Beck: the pudgy, buzz-cut, weeping phenomenon of radio, TV and books. Our hot summer of political combat is turning toward an autumn of showdowns over some of the biggest public-policy initiatives in decades. The creamy notions of postpartisan cooperation poured abundantly over Obama's presidential campaign a year ago have curdled into suspicion and feelings of helplessness. Trust is a toxic asset, sitting valueless on the national books. Good faith is trading at pennies on the dollar. The old American mind-set that Richard Hofstadter famously called "the paranoid style" the sense that Masons or the railroads or the Pope or the guys in black helicopters are in league to destroy the country is aflame again, fanned from both right and left. Between the liberal fantasies about Brownshirts at town halls and the conservative concoctions of brainwashed children goose-stepping to school, you'd think the Palm in Washington had been replaced with a Munich beer hall."

2. KnR :o) ......BeckerHead is a shallow/callow idiot who gains while others suffer pains
He wants to divide us...that is so GOP...

Yes, he is very bad for America....

ahe never talks with a positive bent...always neg...thats BAD...

GOP, the Negative Party

President Obama got a lock on Positivity

Them Pubs cannot handle his presence

Beck is the latest to take up Disparging, Dividing, and Lying ro further the GOPs odds of returning to the Power lever/level they once had but blew it with choosing W Bush

Thus, was W Bush Bad for America? But of course mon ami

3. Instead of worrying about Obama being the antiChrist.......
I think Beck fits the profile to a tee. We shouldn't take him lightly. He is evil incarnate.
