Glen Beck is a very animated, entertaining fellow. Its too bad he had to completely revamp his game after going to Fox News. Now hes just another talking head saying what he has to to make his superiors happy.

Beck seems to be ruffling some feathers in the white house, good for him. I hope he can survive Barry's retaliation.

What's this about Jeff Jones of the Weather Underground and Obama?

Boy we got a real gem for a president.

...you see and it makes sense...when I switched to Rachel M. it didn't make sense and it is so hard to watch for even 2 min...but some times I just torture myself to hear what kind of b.s. she is trying to sell but she is still thinking Obama has to be elected because she is still in the era of bashing Bush... maybe some one needs to tell her that Bush isn't the president anymore!

Glenn, Hannity, Rush are all very brave and sometimes I wonder what indeed the retaliation is against them...Rush already said that he got audited year after year ust for speaking his mind.

You're right. If you get on the WH black list you're in trouble. Ooops..."black list" .. that's one of the many terms that have just been declared politically incorrect.

Rush will be on Beck's program tomorrow. Catch it if you can. Topic will be free speech, and how the left (administration? Pelosi? Dems?) are going to reign in our free speech. Forget the Fairness Doctrine. They have something else in mind.

Then you have watched him since he moved and became so popular? Nah, I don't believe you have. Whose word are you taking about him?

And, just think, Republicans were in control of everything for 6 years and in the White HOuse for 8 years in succession and they were doing that to Rush. It is too bad that progs can't see that he takes whoever is there to task when they screw up.

Speaking of Rush, he was on fire today.

If more people watch this week it will go higher yet, although he outnumbers the total numbers for all his competition. He must be doing something right that our left leaning friends haven't seen because they allow liberal bloggers to talk them out of it.
He's appealing to the idiots of our nation........those who are full of hate and who are clearly advocating violence in politics!

Yeah I have. I like to gain a different perspective and Glen Beck was always a great choice to get the conservative side of things. Now I'm hearing how Obama has a deep seeded hatred for white people, even though his mom is white and he hasn't said or done anything to indicate this. He just went over the deep end and it is without a doubt because he moved to Fox News. If I had the knowledge of how to make a montage of Beck pre Fox News and post Fox News I would just so people can see how fake that whole channel is. Glen Beck was actually one of my favorite pundits before he moved to the dark side, he liked to spell things out clearly and ask the real questions. Now its blatantly clear he has an agenda and superiors he needs to please.
