Are you right-wingers proud to have a screaming, boorish, rude maniac like this as one of the most public figures on "your side"???

Would you rather have no one asking questions about Obamacare? I don't agree with all of his points but it sure beats the fawning admiration and following in lock step of his supporters.

Glenn Beck is a sobbing doofus.

Glenn Beck is right. In countries with socialized healt (s)care, the waiting lists are so long...my dad needed a MRI for his back and had to wait 8 weeks...than he needed pain treatment and was lucky that my mom already scheduled an appointment and lied that she had a prescription for it, hoping the doctor would give it and he did so because she scheduled the appointment weeks before the had the result of the MRI which always takes approx. 2 weeks...he got into the pain treatment center 2 weeks after the MRI had taken place....

20 Years ago he needed 5 bypassess and had to wait 4 months although he was really sick. That was really fast, he was almost put on top of the list....and he was lucky since he was in his fifties, if he was the age he is now he wouldn't even be considered for the surgery.

If you need to see a dermatologist the average waiting time to have your first appointment is 3 weeks or longer and if you need treatment than another waiting period will be there. I was so shocked that over here you can have surgery a.s.a.p...in Europe that is only if you almost are dying.......but wait sooner than later with this governement that will be the reality for Americans as well.

Glenn is a neo-con fool, but IMO he was aces on this call.

Selective hearing? She asked a legit question. How would he change the current healthcare system to improve it? He acted like a maniac because he had no answer. During the entire converstion, you could hear him mimicing her. If I were she, I would have stopped and asked him why he was doing that to begin with. He sounded like pre-schooler.

Glenn Beck is what's wrong with America. The haters like him that seek to divide this country are quickly becoming irrelevant though. America is changing and moving to the left. Glenn Beck is a throwback to a more vicious America that didn't care for its own. Those days are over.

isn't this how his show always is? why is this annoying people so much? doesn't he do this on a daily basis? he had no answer? I am guessing he did, because he said a couple of times after he hung up, "she has obviously never listened to the show." I would assume he has addressed this topic several times for him to say that. the woman was shrill to begin with. he was too nice. this is how he should have sounded.
