Evolution? Obama supports gay marriage, then he doesn't, then he does

Looking for the latest effort by the White House to take attention away from the economy and put it squarely on social issues that rile up the American people but in the end have little impact on their day-to-day lives? Well, you need look no further than President Obama finally "evolving" and deciding that he now supports gay marriage - at least on a personal level. But wait...wasn't that his position waaaaaaay back in 1996? Surely this President wouldn't flip flop to whatever position would score him the most political points, would he?

"Could this president be any more ridiculous?  It's sad.  I feel bad for the president of the United States," Glenn said at the start of the show.

Yesterday, The President told ABC's Robin Roberts, "I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or Marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married."

So what does this mean? Pretty much nothing as Obama makes no commitment to any actual action.

Stu explained, "The left uses that excuse all the time:  I'm personally against it but I'm not changing the law is what ‑‑ that's what they're doing.  He's saying 'I'm personally for it' but he's not committing to changing the law.  He's not putting a bill up to change it nationally.  He's trying to walk some weird line in between exciting his base and not really pissing off whatever support he has."

"I think what he's trying to do is get the credit for being a civil rights champion, without being a civil rights champion.  He doesn't have the courage of Martin Luther King," Glenn argued.

Glenn said that rather than take any action, Obama has maintained that this is a state issue, not a federal one. The stance is curious considering he has taken the opposite stance when it comes to healthcare.

"You're, according to Barack Obama, born that way.  So there's no way you can escape it.  You're born that way.  Okay.  That's a states' issue?  But something that you're not endowed by your creator like healthcare, that's a federal issue?" Glenn wondered.

Glenn noted that maybe, after the election, the pressure for him to take action will force him to do something. But until November 2nd, Glenn doesn't think he's actually going to do anything that might risk his chances of winning. Obama has made it clear that while he supports gay marriage, his position is simply a personal one.

Glenn then ran through Obama's history on gay marriage, stating that in 1996 that Obama said on a disclosure form that he supported gay marriage, but in 2004 claimed that he believed marriage was only between a man and a woman. Then he said that his position was "evolving", leading him to come out yesterday with his support for gay marriage...which was the same position he had in 1996.

Did you follow that?

More evidence is coming out that this was nothing more than a shameless campaign stunt to begin with. Reports from CNN suggest that he was planning to reveal this right before the DNC convention, but Biden's gaffe on Meet The Press caused him to speed up the process. Meanwhile, he immediately sent out a letter to donors announcing his "evolved" position and revealed a spiffy new poster (see below).

Glenn joked that the days of Jay Carney dodging the question on "gay marriage" must have been a result of waiting for these awesome posters to get printed.

But hey - why does it matter anyway? In this economy, gay, straight, polka dot, or whatever, it's harder than ever to get a job let alone the house to move in afterwards. Let's face it, The President will do anything to get us to talk about something else.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
