On radio this morning, Glenn Beck gave another one of his famous “Amazing Predictions”, one that he made in the past but he wanted to clearly go on record with in light of recent news. On the same day that Obama kicked off his 2012 re-election campaign, Glenn predicted that Hillary Clinton would soon be announcing her own bid for the White House.
“I want to make sure that I'm clearly on the record with this prediction. Are you ready? Hillary Clinton is going to reluctantly get into the race for 2012,” Glenn said.
“She's circling. She's circling him right now.”
Glenn said that Hillary, backed by George Soros, would announce her campaign because “the country is at stake” and Obama isn’t getting the job done.
“What makes you think that today?” Stu asked.
“LA Times. No big deal,” Glenn said. “There's a really interesting political commentary in the op-ed section of the LA Times, why Hillary Clinton must run in 2012.”
“If Hillary Clinton's primary voters and President Obama had their relationship status listed on the Facebook pages, it would be changed from married to it's complicated,” Glenn read.
“To be fair, Hillary voters never fell in love with Obama. They just fell in line,” he continued.
“Why are 1 out of every 3 Hillary lovers giving Barack Obama bad marks? Will they stick with him in November 2012? And most importantly, if she senses enough blood in the water -- bum, bum, bum -- will Hillary quit the administration and launch a primary bid against Obama? Yes. Yes, she will. Yes, she can. Yes, she will,” Glenn said.
“It will have to get a lot worse for him first, I think,” Stu said of the President’s approval ratings.
Glenn predicted that America’s financial situation will worsen in May and that it would “tear us apart”. And as revolutionaries and protesters took to the streets across the country, Hillary, not Obama, would be the one saying “We need to come together as people”.
“I'm watching, but I don't see it happening. I don't see it happening,” Pat said.
“Here's what I will say about your predictions. Many of them are accurate and we've chronicled them,” Stu said. He did note, however, that the ones based on individual politics are not always as accurate.
What’s Glenn’s record on “big issue” predictions? On radio he said that someone went back to check his record, and he had 92% accuracy. We’ll see if he’s right on this one.
