After today, it’s safe to say that Glenn has had more than enough of the Republican establishment. This morning on radio he reacted to the Obamacare ruling and the vote from George W. Bush appointed Chief Justice John Roberts.
“I’m tired of the conservative movement. I’m sick and tired of it. I am sick and tired of the Republican conservative movement,” Glenn said this morning following the ruling on Obamacare.
Glenn recalled going to CPAC and rallying the crowd behind the problem of progressivism in both parties, while the “power players” in the Republican establishment continue to implement progressive policies when it is convenient for their party.
This is one of the reasons Glenn has partnered with FreedomWorks to organize FreePAC, a gathering of Tea Partiers and people who believe in small government from all around the globe in Dallas, TX this summer. The event occurs the same week of Restoring Love, and as Glenn made sure to point out, it won’t be full of covert progressives.
“I’m sick and tired of it. They’re cowards. They’re all cowards,” he continued. “They won’t come out and tell you what they really are; they won’t tell you what they really mean. They try to convince you that they’re just like you.”
The deciding vote in the Obamacare ruling was made by Bush appointed Chief Justice Roberts. Glenn has gotten heat from the right for referring to George W. Bush as a progressive in the past, but as Stu pointed out this morning, “This destroys Bush’s legacy among conservatives.”
One of the most shocking pieces of today’s ruling is who wrote the decent on this case – Kennedy. Justice Kennedy wrote in the decent that “in our view, the entire act before us is invalid in its entirety.”
“If Roberts voted the other way, the entire thing would have been thrown out,” Stu said.
Pat pointed out that it’s always the guys who look conservative that end up turning these votes. It never happens the other way.
“Let’s find some people with some spines,” Glenn responded. “Are you telling me out of 350 million people, we can’t find nine?”
Glenn rejected the notion that these appointed Justices should not have a litmus test or should be right down the middle on the issues.
Stu agreed, and added that “the Constitution should win in Constitutional battles.”
This shifted the conversation to what Romney’s response will be, and more importantly, to the importance of he being the conservative he claims to be should he win in November. Glenn also reminded listeners how important it is that they are registered to vote, and that they get their friends registered to vote.
“I’m telling you, this is the freedom movement. I have met with these guys from Freedom Works over and over and over again. These guys are good. They are rock solid,” Glenn said.
Earlier in the radio show Glenn said this of the healthcare ruling, “This is not a setback, this is a challenge. Believe me; the American people are up for a challenge.” Glenn has been encouraging his audience that the time for action is now. If you want to make sure that we do not lose the reason America has always been exceptional, then you need to actively be part of a movement that draws a line in the sand around American hearts. Glenn and FreedomWorks are working hard to organize those who are playing an active role in restoring America – FreePAC and Restoring Love are big part of that.
Stop waiting on Republicans in Washington D.C. to make a difference. Join Glenn and FreedomWorks this summer in Dallas to Restore Freedom and Restore Love.
