Glenn Beck is now supporting a second term for Barack Obama.
Yes. How else do you explain what he has come out with now? From the Right Scoop:
Glenn Beck said this morning on his radio show that if Newt Gingrich is the nominee and Ron Paul runs third party, he’d consider voting for Ron Paul over Newt Gingrich, and he hates Ron Paul’s policies on the Middle East:
This is suicide and it doesn’t get any simpler this: voting third party on our side for whomever guarantees Obama a victory. That’s it. And if Newt’s the nominee and Beck wants to go that road, then I tell him what I tell others: enjoy the hell that will be a second Obama term.
This is after Beck came out a few days ago saying if the Tea Party supported Newt over Obama, it was only about race.
From Business Insider:
Over the weekend Beck followed up last week's headline-making interview with Newt Gingrich with an appearance on Judge Andrew Napolitano's Fox Business show.
Beck, who is no fan of what he terms Gingrich's "progressive" politics, declared that Gingrich is the "only candidate I cannot vote for" before taking a rather brutal (if totally true to form) swipe at Tea Party supporters.
If you have a big government progressive, or a big government progressive in Obama… ask yourself this, Tea Party: Is it about Obama’s race? Because that’s what it appears to be to me. If you’re against him but you’re for this guy, it must be about race. I mean, what else is it? It’s the policies that matter.
Those comments can only be described as nutty.
Why would Beck say such stupid things? One commenter on one of the websites that carried this story suggested Beck was trying to help Romney out because Romney and Beck are both Mormon.
Some Tea Party members, such as myself, like Newt Gingrich. Some are willing to accept Gingrich and some say they will refuse to vote for him. Calling us racists because we prefer Gingrich, who despite his flaws, loves America and wants the best for America, is absolutely nuts.
To say you would prefer Ron Paul as a third party candidate over Newt Gingrich is beyond nuts. If Ron Paul runs as a third party candidate, he has the support to pull enough votes away to give Barack Obama a second term. Anyone with half a brain can figure this out.
Why would Glenn Beck want Barack Obama to have a second term?
If there is no other reason to make certain there is no second Obama term, then consider the Supreme Court. In the next four years, there will be at least one opening in the Supreme Court and possibly more. If one of the conservatives leaves the court, we will have a liberal majority on the court and if that happens, we will see the constitution be relegated to the ash heap of history.
If Beck is so opposed to Newt because he thinks Newt is a progressive, why hasn’t he said anything about Mitt Romney who, unlike Newt, really is a liberal?
So, Glenn, why no criticism of Mitt?
I gave up listening to Glenn Beck several years ago when it became apparent he was more interested in building his brand, then about saving this country.
It looks like I haven’t missed anything.
Uhm .... can you actually say Romney and the words "honest" and "trust" in the same sentence without falling on the floor laughing?
Newt along with Hillery and most active Progressives belong to the (CFR) Council On Foreign Relations
Newt would belong to the Trilateral commission if that wasn't an invitation only club. Very Progressive!
Glenn just happens to fit the mold of A$$ Hole.
We are doomed - Ron Paul is a phoney - he spends tax money - look up his earmarks -plus his foreign policy is suicidal
Romney is a liberal - Newt also
Bachman and Santorem are the only ones and they do not have enough backing .
The candidates should use the opportunity of these debates to bring up Obama policies that the news media keeps hidden - but they don't. As far as I am concerned, although I will vote, the election is rigged and America will be fully AMERIKA after the next election unless Republicans actually act like conservatives
