Glenn: If you are looking for a shill of the Republican Party, this program is not for you

Yesterday, Glenn got into a debate with a caller from North Carolina who suggested he was “poisoning the well” by criticizing New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for his Administration’s involvement in ‘Bridgegate.’ What Judy failed to realize, however, is this scandal is just the latest strike against Christie, who has proven to be more of a progressive Republican than a conservative in the years since first winning the New Jersey governorship in 2009.

But Christie is just one of many establishment Republicans Glenn has chosen not to support, for there is little difference between a progressive Democrat and a progressive Republican. Progressivism is a disease that infects both parties, and it time to look for candidates that reflect small-government values.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On radio this morning, Glenn explained that over the course of the he has come to the decision that we no longer support Republican candidates just for the heck of it, and anyone listening to the program who is looking for a shill of the GOP should look elsewhere:

Poisoning the well for 2016? I told you last year: This is the year to decide. This is the year to decide who you are. If you are going to break again because people are going to start telling you ‘Shut up, because we have to vote for…’ Judy and anyone else who feels this way, I want you to listen carefully: This isn’t the show for you.

Let me tell you what we do on this show: We tell the truth, as we know it. It’s not our job to make sure the Republicans get elected at any cost. We will tell you what we truly believe. We hope, in the coming year, in a more entertaining way to make sure that you are informed and have some fun along the way. But we have never ever been and never ever will be shills for the Republican Party.

But it isn’t just Glenn who is fed up with the establishment. Conservatives in and around the media are becoming less and less willing to toe the Republican line:

Frankly, I think people like Judy are going to be absolutely shocked during the next few years because I can tell you, I am not the only one who’s had it with the GOP. Sean Hannity has had it with the GOP. Mark Levin has had it with the GOP. The biggest “shill” of the GOP, as they have always liked to say, Rush Limbaugh, has had it with the GOP. We do this for a living. We’ve had our fill. So if you’re looking for shills for a political party, you’re probably going to have to shake talk radio.

Turn on any mainstream media channel and you will hear the same all old regurgitated talking points that you may or may not want to hear. Glenn explained that he will not spend his time focusing on those things:

There are plenty of people who will simply tell you what you want to hear. But on this program, on this show, we don’t care about what you want to hear. We’ll tell you what we think. We’ll tell you what we believe and what we don’t believe in the political parties…

What I’ve said in the past, I hate politics. I’ve never been interested in politics. I don’t think you are either. The only reason I talk politics on the show, is because they’re forcing us to talk politics on this show. I don’t mean the Zionist master. What I mean is: Washington is so up in our face, in our life, we have to spend time battling them. If they would mind their own business, I wouldn’t talk about a donkey or elephant for the rest of my life because I don’t care. What I care about: My family, my faith, my God, my day ahead, my plans, my values.

    A vote for Chris Christie is a vote fo another four years of Obama.

  • Anonymous

    Glenn, it isn’t about whether or not you’re a shilling for the GOP, it’s about whether or not you even want to win. I don’t agree with Christie on everything, but if it comes down to him or Hillary Clinton, I will unhesitatingly get behind Christie. On CNN, you wouldn’t even say that you would get behind Christie or ask your listeners to get behind Christie if it came down to him or Clinton. You can’t vote based only on your principles, that’s how people like Mia Love have lost elections. Besides, it would be better to elect someone who at least shares some of my beliefs than elect someone who shares none of my beliefs. I’d like to know how Christie would be another four years of Obama. I just don’t see it.

  • Kathy Creager Cash

    I’m all for Glenn criticizing Christie when it is earned. I’m not convinced… at least yet… that his criticism of “Bridgegate” is earned, but time will tell. I must say that if you compare Obama’s handling of his MANY scandals and Christie’s handling of this one… Christie comes out WAY ahead. He held a no-holds-barred press conference with the media, accepted responsibility as governor for what happened, and fired those who were responsible. Have we yet to see that happen with Obama?

    I, for one, found it rather refreshing.

    Why didn’t Christie do something when the lanes on
    the bridge were closed? There had to be numerous complaints and he had to know
    about it, but did nothing to correct the problem when it was occurring. So, why
    didn’t he? Isn’t he the leader of the state? Shows a lack of leadership skills.
    Then again, maybe he was too busy bullying female teachers around that time.

    Chris Christie
    wants to be president. Here are several reasons why he should not be
    president. Christie is NOT a
    conservative. He is an unprincipled, loudmouth bully. Christie has taken money
    from the Federal Government, i.e. the American taxpayers to prop up New Jersey.
    He assisted Barack Hussein Obama in his re-election over Mitt Romney.
    Furthermore, Christie is weak on the second Amendment, he supports gun control;
    he is weak on immigration, he supports amnesty; he is weak on the threat of
    Islam, he supports the 911 mosque and appointed Islamists to the bench; he’s in
    favor of the green agenda, Cap and Trade; he campaigned for RINO Mike Castle;
    and was MIA on health care litigation. For additional information Tom Marr has
    a You-Tube video exposing the RINO Chris Christie for what and who he is.

    ” in with them
    and suggesting they explain their position to victims of the Sept. 11, 2001,
    attacks.” So the loudmouth, bully RINO Christie thinks the spying program
    on Americans would have prevented 9/11. I guess he forgot the spying program
    was up and running when Boston got hit at the marathon. The Obama Regime is
    spying on Americans to create enemies lists. There are other ways to go about
    protecting the citizens of this country without violating their rights.

    Will RNC push Christie on us as they have pushed other Presidential candidates in the past ? I believe they were going to try, but now they are in a closet hammering out another Progressive to stick us with. I sometimes believe RNC could care less if a Republican wins or not as long as a Progressive gets in the WH they all win. We lose !

  • Louu Ann Martin

    I get upset when your program rushes to agree that Christie is guilty. As others have stated, the facts haven’t come out yet. If he knew about this and gave the go ahead then the liberal media will make sure all of us know it. Christie is the governor of a dem. state. He wasn’t voted in again by a majority of republicans. His first priority is to the state of NJ not the USA. I live in Oregon where there hasn’t been a Republican Governor for over 25 years the the Feds own 50% of the state’s land. The only areas in the state that thriving are the progressive cities of Portland, Eugene, and Medford. All I can do is speak out when I don’t agree with my Representatives and Governor or I can move. It is a constant battle and I get tired when the government keeps trying to put a water meter on my well water to charge me. I just lost my Dad, he was 95 yrs. old, he and I would talk about how the country had changed, and how glad he wasn’t going to live to see it destroyed. Very sad for a great American to admit.

    I live in NJ, and I’ve been saying this for centuries. Chris Christie is a RINO. He’s conservative on fiscal issues (cept for signing a bill giving in-state tuition to illegals), but otherwise? Democrat-lite.

    Christie has been in bed with old guard NJ dems since before his election. NJ dems are split between the Barbara Buono ideologues (she ran against him for gov) and the old guard corrupt types Christie made common cause with.

    Christie wins for prez, and NJ’s version of the chicago mob descends on DC.

  • Marilyn Martina

    I agree with you, Kathy. And one of the things I do not like is going after Christie because he’s fat. There’s just no reason for that. I believe Christie is a RINO. I don’t mind that criticism at all, but the fat thing? Please. Are we all in kindegarten?

    Just like I don’t like majority of what President Barack Obama does, but it’s not because he’s black. That should not even be part of the discussion. Just like Christie’s weight should not be part of the discussion.

    I truly do not get why conservatives would be chatting up Christie. Makes zero sense.

    How about we do it this way? We fight for a conservative, a real conservative who can win, to get the Republican nom in 16. But if we get stuck with Christie after the primaries, we shut up and vote for him, because he will be tons better (pun intended) than Hitlery or the other Marxists the Dems will run.

    But until 2016, conservatives should be fighting for real conservatives, not RINOs.

    I smell the Clinton machine alive and well in all of this. I’m no fan of Christie, but this reeks of a smear campaign from the left. First, the NYT comes out with a lying, bogus article trying to save Hillary. Then, when that went down the sewer, out comes this story…on their biggest threat in 2016!! I lived in the DC area during the Clinton administration, and things with them have not changed. I will not vote for Christie or any other rino, but why is the FBI so quick to “investigate” this possible crime, when they have done nothing to “investigate” BHO and his administration in 5 years?!!!

    I totally agree with Glenn. That is what our lives should be about. The government has become the beast that is trying to swallow us whole and we need to defend ourselves against them by having other people with guts take them on to save our country. Chris Christie is a RINO and is trying to push his fat body into our Federal Government and wants to run it just as badly as the current liar in chief. We have to stop him and others like him

  • Hermi Krueger

    Kathy Kreager you are being blinded by the look of what Christie did to defend himself and fire the person who is at fault for this. All politicians look out for their own skin no matter who the fall guy is. Just because looks penitent and angry doesn’t mean it is real. Look at his record and judge. People who are wishy washy and “protest too much” are guilty. You will see….

    I don’t fully agree with Glenn, but the realand true problem in US politics is Washington itself, and that includes both parties. It is too bad that Americans have a two-party system, where both parties are corrupt to their eyeballs in Washington. America needs a strong president who will virtually destroy the Washington “system of corruption”. Let’s do away with political fund raising as a start, it is at the core of that corruption. Unfortunately, the system is so entrenched and supported by the media, that it will be really hard to fix. Neither the republicans nor the democrats will fix anything. Who will America elect to do the job that needs to be done?

  • John Burleson

    Kool Aide must be abundant in the Beck Studio!! Several comments come to mind–so many that I in fact cannot put them in any comprehensible structure so I shall just blabber…..

    1) Vote for somebody”good”? THERE IS NO “GOOD” POLITICIAN. Political weazels are all thieves, liars and gluttons interested in themselves only. They run for office by lying and assassinating each other’s character. They fake sincerity about programs they promise to push, but the “between the lines” dialogue is they will push programs that will feather their nests first. You don’t have to be rich to get into government, but you’re stupid if you get out of it still poor.

    2) The Republican party has intentionally thrown the last few federal-level campaigns. I’d have to run a month-long casting call to find that many idiots. But being more crafty than the dummycrats, they recognise what a sinking ship looks like and although they did their part to sink it, they don’t want to be anywhere near the bridge when it goes under. Like the vermin they imitate, they already got one hand on the rope and the other on the caviar jar.

    3) I will vote for anyone running against Comrade Clinton. Obama screwed this country up by being a stupid zealot. Clinton has theft experience and the scandals to prove it. What difference does it make? Probably none. Americans don’t get the government they want; they don’t get the government they need. They get the government they deserve.

    4) For all his faults, the New Jersey Dough Boy has one saving grace. Imagine Pol Pot Ooon puffing up his pigeon chest and beating it with his chicken wing guns yelling “America is dickless!” On the other side of the ocean, imagine Kommander Kwithie sitting poised, his quivering index finger hovering over a big, red “Politically Incorrect” button. Question: how many minutes does it take to make North Korea glow in the dark? Teddy Roosevelt (yes, another Republican Progressive) said “Speak softly but carry a big stick.” Christie says the same thing. Only his stick is a lot bigger.

    5) No politician is going to be 100% acceptable to anyone beyond themselves. We have to pick the one that’s too stupid to steal and too lazy to learn. Lewis Black said it best when he said we should throw a dart at the globe. Parachute a monkey to wherever the dart hit. The first person the monkey touches is our next president.

    John Burleson, yadda-yadda-yadda….

    I TOTALLY love Christie’s style. I just wish he were more conservative. And if anything came about with Christie’s wonderfully long press conference yesterday, it’s to show how incompetent a leader Obama is. Christie showed how a person who knows how to lead leads while Obama does whatever he does, which is certainly not leading.

    I agree with Glenn, except for no interest in politics. Charles Krauthammer said that ultimately, in a democracy, everything is about politics. Who we elect determines how we live. Witness Obama and his first two years with a Democratic Senate AND House. We’d better pay attention and be interestied in politics. The only reason Obama is in his 2nd term is voter apathy, and likely some skulduggery in various districts.

    I’m for WEUBTRN = Whoever Ends Up Being The Republican Nominee. Not a very clever acronym, but there you go. Who do I root for in the primaries? Hopefully somebody who is conservative and/or capable of winning. Hopefully there’s someone who has both of those qualities. So, I wouldn’t be voting for somebody like Rick Santorum who has absolutely no chance of winning. I’m not going to tear down somebody (especially before all the facts are out) who has a chance of being the Republican nominee. Glenn was digging at Romney all the time, and basically being an a-hole before he decided “oh crap, my rabid followers might not vote for this guy if I don’t start saying nice things about him.” Which, of course, people screwed up their priorities anyways and didn’t vote for Romney giving Obama another vote. Am I a conservative? Yes, I think I am. Unless being conservative now means throwing away elections because I my “principles” are too important. But I think the best way to advance conservatism is to elect people who share at least some of my beliefs instead of electing those who don’t share my beliefs at all.

    When it comes to Thunder Thighs and Joisey Boy, what’s the difference? Well the difference is that Joisey would be lucky to carry five states in the election. If the voters have a choice between hardcore Democrat and Democrat Lite (somewhat) they’ll choose hardcore Democrat every time.

  • Crassus

    Very doubtful that the Clintons (or any other leftists) are at the bottom of this scandal. It’s in their best interests to keep his candidacy alive and viable. They know they would be looking at a landslide victory with Joisey as the GOP nominee. He might carry five states at the most. Therefore, they would wait until he’s got the nomination all sewn up until they turned their big guns in his direction. No, this one could be the work of someone on the right. That’s if you look at things logically.

    There is no way I will ever vote for Christy. He is not much of a conservative. For a while I liked how he can kickass with his mouth, but it will take more than that to get my vote. If we don’t get someone with a true view of where we need to go and how deep we need to dig to start righting some of our problems it will be all over for the U.S. The truth will set you free, but no one seems willing to telling the truth and that is the crux of the problem.

    You’re probably right, Crassus. I just got back and had the time to read all the postings. Some of them are a bit crass, like gregzotta, but I like crass and agree with him and most of the others. The problem is we don’t have any statesmen in America, anymore. We have politicians. They’re all criminals. Us knuckle draggers have one of five boxes to choose from in the next few elections. The voting box better not fail us this time, or somebody’s gonna open one a’ them other boxes. And what if The Staypuffed man is what the republican mouth breathers come up with? Do us REAL conservatives rebell and by so doing give up our pockets to the hand of Hillery? I know McCain was a douche bag and Romney was out slithered in every way. But not voting is, in effect, voting for the other side. And negativity is the biggest catalyst for not caring. But I bet every conservative in this country cares whenever he looks at his bank balance, or tries to see his doctor, or tries to open a business without “knowing somebody.” I bet every SOG in camel-jockey land cares as he huddles in his foxhole wondering not when the help will come but IF the help will come. Comrade Clinton and her minions are out there, gentlemen. This is no boogie-man story. Monsters are coming to kill America. We have to stay united because, divided, we __________(fill in the blank).

    Start talking POSITIVE!! Example: even if the Gargantuan Gov is low on the conservative list, he’s on OUR list. And somewhere, he did something good. Point it out while bashing him.

    This has been a very interesting and spirited discussion. I have the same problem that many if not most of you have. I agree with Glenn philosophically that we need to eschew progressives as much as possible. If the primary were held today, I would not choose Mr. Christie as my first choice. However, I don’t know who is my first choice right now. In the end, however, if it becomes a choice between Chris Christie and Hillary Clinton, I would have to vote for Mr. Christie.

    Dear Glenn…..My wife and I love you, as do most of our family. We listen to you on the Radio almost daily and watch your program everynight. We agree with you on most things and find you Amazingly Talented. We have not been huge supporters of Chris Christie….although, we don’t hate him either. We do find it unnessary for you to call him the awful names that you do. I thought I remember you saying, just recently, that you, and, your Team, were going to be Better People this year. I don’t understand why you, Pat, and, Stu, find it necessary to be so disrespectful and hateful towards people you don’t like. It really does get old, and, you’re not funny when all of you just go on, and, oooon. Also, we are member’s of the same Religion. At times, we find your actions to be very embarrassing, disrespectful of our Faith, and, to “Our Father-In-Heaven.” This reflects badly upon our Faith. We were so upset with you and Rush during the last Presidential Election due to the way all of you Bashed Mitt Romney. He is a good and decent man. You may not agree with him, but he certainly didn’t deserve to be Trashed and Bashed the way you did. We didn’t always agree with him or of some of his Policies either. However, he still didn’t deserve what you did to him. Like it or not, he was our ONLY chance to Beat Obama! You guys Trashed him sooooooo badly that by the time he was our Nominee……the damage was done. You helped in that. Then, just because your guy (Santorim) didn’t make it and Mitt was our ONLY choice, both you and Rush did the “180″ trying to repair the damage that you had done. It was truly disgraceful! As I said, we did not support everything Mitt Romney had done while in Office or during his campaign. However, we do believe Mitt Romney would have made a GREAT President and we do have a great respect for him. He would have certainly made a much, much, better President than what we were left with. Quite frankly, we don’t deserve any better than what we ended up with. If you think Rick Santorim, or, Rand Paul, could ever win…..think again. We like them, however, neither one could ever Win. We have been Republican’s all of our lives, but, are extremely dissappointed in them too. We now refer to ourselves as “Conservatives.” We are so dissappointed with the GOP and many Republican’s in Congress. There are very few who we support. And, Glenn, we don’t expect you to be a “Shill” for the Republican’s. As I said….we are extremely disappointed in them too. However, if you and Rush continue to trash every Republican (moderate leaning) you disagree with, or, don’t like, we will “NEVER” take back the White House. Independent’s and Moderates, find Tea Party Candidate’s too extreme. If you are holding out for an Extreme Right WIng Candidate or Tea Party Patriot….forget it. We will Never take back the White House. I think the only chance we have to Win in the next Presidential Election is if “Mike Huckabee” decides to run. I know you’re laughing, but, right now who is left??? We never supported him either, but think he is the only serious contender we have against the Democrats. What choices are we left with now??? Lastly, if you want people to continue to follow you, respect you, and, your efforts, please, please, do what you said you would do, and that is …… “Be A Better Person”….. “Take The High Road.” Best Wishes For A Blessed New Year! May God Bless You All…..

    I respectfully disagree with you. I’m sorry….but your way of thinking is why we ended up with another 4 years of Obama! People just decided not to go Vote because they didn’t like Mitt Romney. They just gave up and threw in the towel! Mitt Romney would have made a Great President! Much, much, better than what we ended up with. But, quite frankly, we really didn’t deserve a Great man like Mr. Romney. We got what we deserved by not getting out the Vote! Again, I’m sorry….but….we will never take back the White House with this way of thinking.

  • witnessone

    Right now, it looks like Mike Huckabee is our only hope of taking back the White House. Who else is there? Rand Paul, Santorim or Paul Ryan aren’t good choices. I never supported Huckabee before but have changed my mind about him. I hope he decides to run.

    Glenn is right, We have to be careful who we support because most politicians are not telling the truth. They want to make you believe they are. Look at Senator
    McCain, Boehner, Hillary. President Obama, they have proven that they area all liars.
    I think true conservatives believe in God and our Constitution and like Glenn, the truth as best it can be. I think the Tea Party needs to stand out and be recognized fully by having Tea Party on all states voter registration forms the same as Democrat, Republican or Independent. That way everyone will know who stands for what. Everyone will have to work for the Tea Party vote.

  • Yoikes

    Christie is just not good enough for what we need in this country. Yes, he frequently spouts the truth in ways that just make you want to cheer, but his policies are not sufficiently on the right track. For instance, would he be for repeal of Obamacare? Does he realize the danger of Islam? I don’t think so. I just do not think he is the right candidate.

  • Anonymous

    Christie is what he is….and it’s not conservative. Yeah, he’s better than a Democrat, but not much better. Republican politicians, in general, are NOT conservative and are not defending American citizens from the Progressive agenda of the Democrats. Politics-as-usual has gotten us into a serious mess. Our laws and Constitution have been violated and nobody in Congress is raising hell about it. The media betrays the people and its first amendment right by being the voice of the Democrat Party. It should be disclosing truth to the public; not hiding it. An informed citizenry is important to a society if it is to keep its liberty. Conservative candidates will have to be identified and supported if we are to get a constitutional government FOR the people.

    Everybody forgets what is politics and that is a big game of manipulation and calculations. To ask a governor of a state of super majority democrats to be a true conservative will lead to have them loose in all democrat states. Christi is doing what New Jersey’s needs are at the moment. US is center right country in general therefore they will always elect center right presidents minus reactionary pulls to the left.
    I am all for honesty but as a politician you have to know when to say something else you don’t believe in. The move to curb freeloaders has to be gentle. Giuliani did it with limited time for welfare and forcing them to do community service in return.
    For now, even the freeloaders who will get free obamacare have hard time getting signed up and getting a service but once it becomes set they will cut off the heads of any politician who would dare to take away their medicaid and subsidies.
    Romney did not get support of conservatives and in return we have Obamination for the second term. He was bruised from primaries and I lost all the respect for Ron Paul.

  • Robert Blake

    Glenn,
    It is the Fat characterization that you use that I disagree with so strongly . It belittles you greatly. How Christie looks has no bearing on his beliefs or job performance. I am no fan of his after his Obama hugging performance but you alienated me just as much attacking him on his physical attributes and not his actions and beliefs. You need to grow up because what you did here is 3rd grade playground stuff.

  • John Civello

    It is obvious that when Beck doesn’t like someone, he can pile on just like the other media that he criticizes. Her obviously doesn’t like the Governor. I think some of Beck and his partners comments were childish humor about a overweight Governor stuck in some bad decisions made by his staff, hopefully not by him. Least the Governor takes responsibility and is taking steps to resolve it unlike others who are running our country. Though I am a fan of Beck, there are times his attempts at humor becomes ignorant and dumb. I really expect better from his show and others who are on his network.

    Then you aren’t a conservative who is aware of the RINOs being damn near as much to blame for the destruction of our way of life, our individual liberties, our republic!! As Glenn said; this isn’t the show – or the forum/ blog-site for you. Most of us who have followed Glenn for many years are staunch constitutional conservatives who are extremely astute to the disease that has infested BOTH parties, and we realize that if this isn’t stopped we can kiss goodbye any chance at EVER AGAIN being represented by those who are supposed to be honored to do just this. Apparently you will be fine and dandy living under a big brother, all-consuming, tyrannical form of government which indoctrinates us and “takes care of us”, on a daily basis, from cradle to grave.. I’d suggest you go hang out at the RNC/ GOP web sites. We have work to do here.

    Actually folks don’t discount Rand Paul just because his fathers followers have driven us mad in 1988, 2008 & 2012! I am an ex Republican Independent strongly Small Government Conservative (both Fiscally and Morally) I have watched Rand Paul and he seems worth looking at and considering. I am going to look into his history & record a lot more. Please do not discount the man because of those annoying Paulite spammers. Look for other that are worth a deeper look and we can compare them. Please One more look at Rand Pauls Record before blocking him out!

    Thank you VERY MUCH. I will be looking at Christie very carefully but the fact is he already has bad points on the scoreboard against any Presidential Run.

    So you’d just as soon have a king. Or have the UN lording over us. You don’t care about our constitution, bill of rights, individual liberties, our second amendment, straight unfettered capitalism, a free market economy, petrol fueled automobiles, and soooo much more. Got it. These big, nanny state – if not one world government RINOs fought Reagan all the way, and after he was out they won total control of our party. And have nearly destroyed our nation. Some of us realize that we have two enemies. The ‘democrat lights’ do not give a rat’s a$$ about representing you. Good luck with that.

    WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. The reason we had 4 more years of a radical liberal is because the RNC/GOP is just as EVIL as the dem party, and could care less if they win or lose as long as they get to reap some of the spoils STOLEN from our treasury through their big government legislation. WAKE UP!!

    It is unbelievable to hear people saying that because of Glenn Romney lost. Romney lost because people like Gov Christi who took the Republican Convention for himself, talking about himself & NJ. Also, Romney lost because the GOP from the start pushed him up, which is EXACTLY what they and the pundits are doing now with Gov Christie.

    GW helped to bring this nation to its’ knees. And I like the man, just not his leadership. His lack of ability or lack of desire to stand up against liberal policies and liberal talking points brainwashing the citizenry on a daily basis; especially in their bashing of him if he ever dared to do anything that wasn’t extremely liberal… helped the democrat party going forward as much as anything any hardcore lib could ever do.

    I am a big fan of Glenn, BUT… I have a few HUGE problems with him as well. I was VERY disappointed in him for being such a smarmy JERK toward Michael Jackson; suggesting that he must have been a child molester, when there is absolutely no way of knowing such a thing, and I felt that Jackson was a seriously weird dude thanks to his upbringing – not having had a childhood, and therefore he may have been just helping kids have a better one. When you don’t know… you don’t go out on a limb and cast aspersions which is bearing false witness. He slammed on Tiger Woods in the same snarky, JERK way. And all the while Glenn BS’s us about being a better, loving person. But having said this, you couldn’t be more wrong about us never having a strong conservative, and especially a tea party candidate win. Glenn is helping, and Rush, Levin, Michelle Malkin and now Sean Hannity and MANY others are all leading this fight. You expose yourself as not really being so conservative when you say EXTREME RIGHT WING. The only ones I consider to actually be extreme are the religious nut bags who constantly spout off about things that we should shut the hell up about during an election cycle. For it is fodder for the opposition. Let me educate you: Reagan would be a tea party favorite, but not even close to a right wing extremist!! Dr. Ben Carson is the same, and he’s my favorite right now. UNLESS… we could have John Kasich or Scott Walker run. And one more thing; Rick Santorum is a complete and total PHONY who only jumped on the conservative/ tea party/ religious band-wagon during the election season!! And Michelle Bachmann was one in particular who I was alluding to – who should have shut her frickin’ mouth about religious crap, and pretty much everything – shouldn’t have even been in the race!! I want her in the Senate, but she and her types aren’t bright enough to not get dragged into stupid trap conversations!! So Glenn SERIOUSLY blew it with his WAY over-promoting them.

    Maybe you should step outside now and then, hot shot. take a look at what we can see from the outside. Was I talking about WHERE YOU LIVE?? Is reading comprehension a problem for you? I was talking about the FACTS you stated; that you didn’t know you were a progressive state!!!

    I live out in the rural area where we are all conservatives. You know; the great Maine woods. Vacationland. (well, that’s also in good part our coastline) But we despise our liberal majority in the larger populated cities passing gay laws and electing RINOs like Collins and Snowe and the LYING POS Angus King – who screwed up our state as an “Independant” (FAR LEFT) Governor. Sooo were you attempting to equate your blindness with anything up here in Maine?? Did I mention anything about my effed up state? No. Didn’t think so. We’re on the same side. Don’t get so defensive because YOU’D apparently been blind to what they’re doing in your Capitol. My state did turn damn near BLOOD RED in 2010, electing a VERY conservative Governor and nearly the entire legislature. But with the help of the VERY radical left-wing press coverage up here Gov, LePage will most likely lose his re-election bid after being bashed to pieces on a daily basis. And he has helped to get our fiscal mess back into working order after liberal after liberal governor and legislature frigged it all up. But anyway.. I feel your pain.

    Maybe you should get a brain somewhere. Maybe at the brain store. You are an a$$. We have only HAD TO SUFFER (THUS FAR, ANYWAY) with the passage of gay legislation. Otherwise we send RINOs and radical liberal dems to the house and senate. But we are NOT suffering from ANY OTHER liberal legislation. Okay, smarta$$????? And I’m far from the cities where the freaks live. The point is, you moron, my rural town is VERY conservative. So go screw.

    Mike it’s more being immature than a jerk. Governor Christie is more a conservative Democrat and a moderate Republican than a liberal as we know liberals as being more socialists now, however Beck’ idea as a real candidate is which he says he supports is not electable or realistic. Mocking Governor Christie to try and convince others is the wrong way. He should stick to intelligent reasons.

  • John Burleson

    I am John Burleson. I posted a comment regarding Christie yesterday (maybe two if you count a response I posted). Disqus then screwed up again and left the switch open so all the comments posted since Mr Gregzotta’s words of wisdom are showing up in my inbox. I have communicated with the idiots atn Disqus but since it’s cheaper to stay screwed up I don’t anticipate them correcting their latest blunder.

    I have read most of the comments and asure you that, from my worthless point of view, everybody thinks the same way: 1) Christie sucks as a Republican candidate for President, and 2) ABC (Anybody but Clinton/Comrade Clinton/the Commie Clinton).

    Once again, my politics are simple: any republican over any socialist. I live on the other side of the country so I don’t follow Christie that close. I like the way he tore the Teachers Union a new one (they deserve it) and the way he pushed for his state to get the care it needed after the hurricane last winter. He strikes me as the guy who’d fly to Tehran and walk up to the rag-head leader Komaniac, look him in the eye and say “I’m here, fucker. Whatcha gonna do?”

    Please remember this: the Re Plug Lican’ts have a vested interest in losing the next few elections. That way, they can boodie-hoo, wring their hands and do the Paula Poundstone Hop of Worry over the horrible way the country’s gone while stuffing their pockets to the max. So at the sneaky level us sheeple are too stupid to recognize, these criminals have it all planned out. If you don’t think my marble bag is full, Google how many of them have private jets and how many of them own property in countries that don’t have extradition agreements with us. Then google how many of them jets are kept staffed and running 24 hours a day.

    If the Gluttons On The Potomac run somebody, they’re running a loser. If they turn their noses up at who the people choose to vote for and can’t figure out how to steal the primary votes, THAT’S THE GUY TO VOTE FOR. And if that guy wins I need everybody who can get there to park something on the Reagan International runways. The weasels already have an underground facility to house all 537 thieves in case of an emergency. All we got to do is get them in there and then weld the doors closed. Or, if we get them all in the river, let me know. I know how to flush it.

    Glenn acts like he is not a cheerleader for the republican party but he never talks about election law reforms that would allow 3rd parties to compete and never talks about great 3rd party candidates like Chuck Baldwin and Gary Johnson, even though the republicans were running McCain and Romney, respectively.

  • Anonymous

    Say what you will about any candidate, but when push comes to shove. There are two real parties. All conservatives should run in the republican primaries, The winner of the primary election should be supported. If a candidate cannot win the republican party primary, they have no chance in hell of winning the general election. The democrats will not vote conservative. So, if we split the conservative vote into several factions, we will never win back the country. EVER. The day is coming I pray when men like Rand Paul, will be president but it may not come all at once. One thing you should not do is assume someone is guilty when the facts are not in as you have done with Christy. You may be right that he knew about “bridgegate” but don’t preach for the truth what you do not know. Giving your opinion is OK, but there is a difference in guessing and knowing.

    Hi
    MikeInMaine…..I feel the need to clarify a few things. First…..my beef with
    Glenn is mainly how he treats people he doesn’t like. Glenn just got through
    saying they were going to do things differently this year…..Be Better People.
    Ummmm….that sure didn’t last too long. Glenn is a good person in a lot of
    ways and does so many great things for people. However, they Trash people when

    they don’t agree with their way of thinking or they just don’t like them. Just
    because Christie is heavy isn’t grounds for the cruelty and hatefulness. They
    are all nothing but “BULLIES” when they act in such a manner! His
    weight has nothing to do with the situation and is a slap in the face to every
    heavy set person out there. Glenn must have millions of overweight people in
    his Audience. I find it

    to be very offensive and I am just a little guy! I hate the way they go on,
    and, on, and, on….thinking they are just being funny! It isn’t funny! They
    all get so carried away it’s like a bunch of 2 year olds. We end up turning the
    channel when they get so offensive to others. And, you don’t need to Educate
    ME! We are Very Conservative! And, sad to say this, but….we are in very
    different times than when Reagan was our President. What I meant by Extremists
    would be someone like Ron Paul. I am telling you….anyone like that would
    never win in this day and age. NEVER! I just want a Conservative back in the White
    House but fear we will NEVER get one the likes of Reagan again. We need

    to have Independents and even Moderates vote with us. They won’t if we have
    Extremists like a Ron Paul. I would love nothing more than to see Ted Cruz or
    Rand Paul and Dr. Ben Carson run. Dr. Carson is our Favorite Candidate too! He
    hasn’t said he will run so I’m not sure how serious a candidate he is at this
    moment. I’m not convinced any of the above could ever beat Hilary Clinton or
    whomever the Democrats put up against the Republicans. Glenn and Rush have
    tried this before and where did it get us??? A LOST Election and 4 more years
    of Obama! The only reason I said Mike Huckabee is probably the only serious
    choice we have right now is because he is well known, has already been a Presidential
    Candidate, and, a Governor. And, he is seriously thinking about running. I
    believe he would have a much better chance at winning than Ted Cruz or Rand
    Paul. I just don’t think they can win. I know he was “moderate
    leaning” while Governor with regards to some of his past policies.
    However, I think he has changed since his Presidential run. Rick Santorum was
    Glenn, Hannity and Rush’s Candidate…..NOT mine! I never supported him for
    President, nor, could he ever win. I was just thinking Glenn was trying to get
    his man to run again. Maybe Ted Cruz is his choice this time. Not sure. Again,
    my point was…..I don’t want Christie to run, however, he doesn’t deserve to
    be trashed and treated the way Glenn, Pat and Stu are now doing. It’s
    Ridiculous! I really like those who you have mentioned. John Kasich and Scott
    Walker would be great too, but I don’t think either of them could win. I don’t.
    I also agree with you about Michelle Bachmann and may I add….Sarah Palin. I
    wish

    Michelle would stay where she is. I hate to see her leave. We need her in there
    fighting for us. They need to keep Palin out of it. She does nothing but cause
    problems and controversy. I just wish Glenn, Hannity, and, Rush, would not
    promote any one candidate or Trash some the way they do….especially….before
    a Primary Election. One never knows who will be the Nominee. Then, you have
    caused them great harm. Just like they did Mitt Romney. You have to give credit
    where credit is due….we ended up with another 4 years of Obama and they
    certainly had a hand in it. If they start this garbage all over again it will
    be just like the last Presidential Election. People just won’t go Vote! I would
    like to ask you a question…..If Chris Christie decided to run and was the
    Nominee (god forbid) would you get out and Vote for him, or, would you just
    stay home? This was one of the points I was trying to make. We need a GREAT
    Candidate in which the Tea Party supports, Republicans can support,
    Independents….and….yes….even Moderates….would Vote for. If we
    don’t…..we will never take back the White House!

    Bush’s White House warned about Fannie and Freddie: http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/198/15484/

    I mean, you have that whole “abandon the free market to save the free market” thing, but he did try to warn people about Fannie and Freddie. That’s a clear cut example right there of there being an actual difference between republicans and democrats. Unfortunately, the GOP didn’t have control of Congress and couldn’t do anything about it. We’re always going to have a two-party system, so we might as well go with the party that’s not totally bad.

    Ask Rience Preibus.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Yes, he sure got out there and did something. He gets points for that simply because there is no one else with the determination to do something like that when the knives come out. Their wimpy advisors have them hunker down and go dark in the beginning of accusations, and I think that ultimately sets the tone for a feeding frenzy by the opposition.

    I certainly hope he isn’t a liar. If that proves to be the case he is through as far as most honest, decent people are concerned.

  • Bill Tilghman

    I hope someone points out your physical appearance flaws soon so you can see how mean spirited your comments are. Do you hate all obese persons, or is it just limited to your political opposites?

  • Bill Tilghman

    That’s telling him! The Republicans they elected to Congress from Maine sure don’t have much of a conservative voting record.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Pot, meet kettle. Seriously, you need to chill – try walking outside for a half an hour without a coat.

  • Bill Tilghman

    We have seen the profane come and go here. You keep it up and your days commenting here are numbered. Capice?

  • Bill Tilghman

    Hey Mike, forget that fool. You were being too nice to him, and he isn’t apparently able to handle a reasoned, sane conversation. More’s the pity…

  • Bill Tilghman

    Greg, did it ever occur to you that the Governor’s job description doesn’t include micromanaging traffic flow? That is a task that is delegated to lower level employees – did you not see the police enforcing the lane closure? If the ones closest to the problem did nothing to stop it how do you think the Governor was supposed to be aware of it at the time? Do you expect him to be omniscient and omnipresent too?

    You seriously should look at your post again – it isn’t realistic in any sense.

  • Bill Tilghman

    You need an ego check – or stop drinking the energy drinks.

  • Bill Tilghman

    These same people screaming about this incident do nothing about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS and NSA scandals and our headlong rush to make all the troops sacrifices in Afghanistan all for nothing. We’ve seen this before in Iraq, and even in Vietnam. I suppose it is OK to send our military off to die or be maimed for life, and then walk away from it as if nothing happened. It is kind of like sending our ambassador into hostile territory with little or no security, and when they come under attack leaving them to die instead of making our best effort to help them.

    But a traffic jam on the GW Bridge is a bridge too far for some folks!

    I have one word to address this problem – PERSPECTIVE.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Exactly right. The fools can go on and blame liberals or progressives all they want to, but at the end of the primaries and conventions the voters are left with only two choices, and those who chose not to cast a vote are just as guilty as those who voted for Obama. The real reason Obama won was due to low turnout on the Republican side, all the analysis of the election proved that, and that Obama had lower turnout than the first time he won. He won because of idiocy like “if my guy isn’t in the running, I am not voting”, or, “I am never going to vote for that guy”.

    Their thinking is going to assure a democrat in the White House and possibly the democrats retaining control of the senate. Those people better figure out this problem soon, or conservatism is done.

  • Bill Tilghman

    You could not be more wrong. People like you who didn’t vote for the available candidate caused Obama to stay in office.

    You had better get over it, or revoke your voter registration. No one cares if you protest by not voting. No one keeps track of that statistic.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Says you.

  • Bill Tilghman

    His leadership caused what exactly? Since 09/11/2001 through the end of his second term we had no terrorist attacks on his watch on US soil. I think his leadership was fine in that regard.

    Barack has not fared so well, and his term is still underway. I wouldn’t be surprised if we were hit again with him at the helm.

    People who didn’t “vote for the RINO” caused his reelection – it is documented fact. People like you could have prevented the second term of the pretender, but you, you chose to spite the nation by not doing your duty. I am not saying that Romney was perfect, but things would have been a lot different under his leadership than it is now.

    You need to accept the responsibility of your inaction. It is your fault that Obama was reelected. When are you going to man-up instead of attacking everyone else who isn’t you?

  • ..

    This whole thing is a non story, a diversion from Obama’s FUp’s. Christie was never going to be the GOP nomination in 2016. The Liberal media wants him to be but we’re all tired of the liberal media choosing our candidates.

  • Bill Tilghman

    You back Scott Walker and denigrate people you consider RINO’s? Astounding!

  • Bill Tilghman

    I agree – the needless negative remarks that amount to personal attacks are ugly indeed. I was surprised to hear it coming from Glenn, and his partners. If they thought it was being funny, it wasn’t. I am surprised that they did that, but also disappointed to hear it because that kind of low brow stuff is the trade-craft of the left. These guys are supposed to be better than this, and they owe the audience an apology for engaging in it.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Whereas you appear to be a striped jackass. Do you ever have any positive contribution to make?

  • Bill Tilghman

    Go soak your head. I am sure we can get a collection for a bucket of ice should you be in need of it.

  • Bill Tilghman

    I have only one thing to say about this – Beck owes an apology to his audience for the ugly statements made during his broadcast. He took the low road by making this personal, and he should know better. No adult should engage in that kind of behavior if he wants to be seen as a responsible and decent human being.

  • Bill Tilghman

    If you haven’t noticed, Disqus doesn’t like people coming to this site either. It is almost impossible to get here through them without inserting Glennbeck.com in the place of Disqus.com if you simply try to reply to another comment from the Disqus Dashboard. They have been actively doing this for a couple of years, many have complained about it, and they have not addressed those complaints. Some one there fixed it a year ago but it reverted to screwing up the URL after a week or so.

    I am not surprised to hear your report of difficulty with Disqus, but if you expect them to deal with it, keep in mind they are very liberal and are doing this on purpose.

  • Bill Tilghman

    So, you love a man who refers to an obese person as a fat man in a very ugly manner? Sorry, but that is how your comment reads in view of the broadcast.

  • Bill Tilghman

    “I’ve been saying this for a while” – you missed the memo didn’t you? Well it said no one cares what a troll like you says here, not now, not ever. Get with the program!

  • Bill Tilghman

    Tom you are absolutely correct about what got O his second term. Too many conservatives withheld their vote because their favorite didn’t get the nomination and now we have the results of that stupidity.

  • ..

    Don’t forget all the Libertarians who voted on principle and caused a great deal of negativity about the GOP candidate and didn’t foresee the disastrous affects of an Obama second term.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8FvmesaxXg Sam Fisher

    Obama just appointed a guy who gleefully defended a cop killer. Keep thinking Obama does not hate white people.

    Thanks, Bill. Maybe he was having a bad day? Conversations don’t have to be peppered with profanity – reading previous things he has posted, one can see that he has ‘issues’.

    Yes. I am trying to help, okay?

    Glenn is deceiving you. I cannot tell if he is doing it for mere profit, or it if he is an embedded agent from the left sent to destroy the Republican party from within, but you are being deceived.

    I am a progressive globalist, not a Democrat, just so you know.

    Also, I am an American but I do not live in the United States.

    The sad part is the moderators here used to ride herd on this sort of thing a few years ago, and these people would eventually get the heave-ho from them. For the past couple of years that has not been happening.

    They cleaned house last month. It took letters to MRA and email complaints directly to their main office. For now, you need to FLAG comments to the far right of the comment and down vote the poster.

  • MikeM

    Sounds like a plan. I didn’t thumbs down him because I wanted to see if he would calm down…. way over the top he went. Weird…. anyway, I see the flags and I’ll consider it.

    It’s what the mods pay attention to on most sites.

    chris christie is toast in terms of presidental candidates, so whats left Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Jeb Bush?

  • BlueMN

    Beck is the real deal, a genuine lunatic fringe fanatic. There’s no way any Democratic organization could come up with a clandestine plan that devious and that effective, they couldn’t even get the ACA website running right at first. He’s doing this all on his own. #DefundtheGOP

  • Dustin Hampton

    Cant problem with progressive candidate is Tea-party say what you will about their crackpots and other flaws. Fact is they are growing and will continue to do so as long as Republicans no longer represent small government and conservative values. Any progressive will split the vote at least in some states that have tea party footholds. Which means most Republican strong holds would be up for grabs by democrats.

  • Anonymous

    Christie was the pick of the Democrats and the media propaganda machine. Ask christie where his liberal friends are now?
    You’d think that Obama would, at the very least, visit New Jersey and give him a hug.

  • Thomas Davenport

    Chris Christie is obviously a….NAZI!

    Are we at war with Islam?

    Should Islam be banned in America?

    How should Muslims in America be dealt with?

  • b6en

    We are not at war with American Muslims, but many in the Middle East have taken war to us in the name of Allah.
    Islam should not and can not be banned in the US – the 1st Amendment will not allow such persecution.
    We can always prevent immigration from countries we suspect of supporting our downfall. The average American Muslim is not a terrorist and should not be discriminated against.

  • Jeff Muller

    Regarding your comments (you know who you are): How disheartening it is
    to see you people turn on one another like rabid dogs. Who needs
    progressive political opponents when all we need to do is stick you all
    in a chat room for an hour and let you destroy one another. Ever hear of the 9-12 Project? Time for review. Please don’t respond except to repent.

    Speaking of shilling…why is Glenn sponsoring a predatory lawsuit organization??
    I just received this email sponsored by Glenn Beck.

    Quickly – and Legally – “Rob”
    the World’s Largest Companies!

    I believe this company, and others like it, appear to have made a business out of buying patents and finding ways to sue the companies that use them based on frivolous accusations; and they appear to be getting away with it, costing businesses and consumers enormous amounts of money.

    Huckleby is a RINO. Some other possible options are S.Walker-WI and T.Cruz. Too early to be sure yet…

  • leta cooper

    Mike in main. Very well put. As if the State of Oregon wasn’t a liberal State for years now. Has this person been living on the top of a mountain, far far away from society? No offense to Mike M. Sorry for coming down hard. I am sure you are a good person and all but really? And I am from CA where unless you live in the San Joaquin Valley this whole place is crawling with Hollywood Liberals etc. It makes me want to throw up. I hope that is not to graphic.

  • leta cooper

    Sorry Mike M. I didn’t know you had pockets like us I should have known. I lived in Oregon, Klamath Falls, having babies in 19670, Air Force and then moved to Grand Forks ND. I did’t take time with politics at that time. Had a nother baby their also. They both are in the Air Force over twenty years now. Very proud. I just couldn’t miss a chance to brag. They both are both very conservative in their politics.

  • leta cooper

    That was funny. Well put. So I got my laugh for the day. Thanks, I needed that.

  • leta cooper

    MikeInMain, Did you catch the whole period that Glenn did on the many contributions the the American Black Society contributed during the civil war? It was really good I thought.

  • MikeM

    No sweat… no problem…. God bless the Air Force ‘kids’ and you SHOULD be proud.
