The ultimate Coward: Obama blames everyone but himself

How many times has President Obama blamed his failures on ‘headwinds’? The U.S. economy, China’s economy, the Middle East, the Japanese tsunami, President Bush, gas prices, soaring energy costs, the Republican Congress, the Arab spring… the list goes on and on.

He has over-used the talking point so much it has become more of a running joke than a legitimate excuse. Using the term allows Obama to pass his failures off on things that are seemingly beyond his control, but when you are three and a half years into a four year term, it gets harder and harder to play the “I blame everything but myself game” – unless of course, you are a coward, which it has become blaringly obvious this President is.

“The President is giving a speech on the headwinds coming out of Europe, and I can't take it,” Glenn said.

Considering Glenn has been warning of the significance of a European economic collapse for months, it is about time the President caught up with the times. But in reality, Obama’s response to the situation really just proves how unqualified he is to be president and how untruthful he might be.

“He's now using Europe as an excuse for the economy, and he's trying to say things are going to get bad,” Glenn said. “You mocked me when I told you that things were going to get bad in Europe, and we should pay attention to the Europe, and it was going to be in trouble. You mocked me because I heard it from Glenn Beck. Now you should hear what Glenn Beck is saying now. But the President mocked it and said it's not true. And the man is not qualified to be a President of the United States if he didn't see this coming. If he's talking about headwinds in Europe he has no clue what's next and the next shoe will drop. He's not qualified.”

The President has spent months telling us that we are in a recovery thanks to his brilliant leadership. But it’s just not true. And now that the numbers are getting worse, Obama has no choice but to go back to blaming everyone and everything but himself.

“He [Obama] says we're on the mend,” Glenn said. “We're fixing it and, you know, Europe is fixing itself. No, it's not, it's not going to work. And what do they keep doing? They keep bailing things out.”

“Well, now he [Obama] comes out and says, ‘Whew, we've got another headwind.’ ‘Oh, the stories coming out of Europe, we've got headwinds.’ No, you don't have headwinds. You don't have headwinds. What you have is the collapse of the European system, and it is imminent.”

When you look at the President, his administration, and his friends it becomes harder to believe that he just figured out Europe is a ‘headwind.’

“Now, one of Barack Obama's big sources – think of this connection, please. One of his big sources is George Soros,” Glenn explained. “What has George Soros come out and said – that the Euro is a bubble. It will be over in the next three months… There's no way this is a surprise to the President of the United States.”

This headwind was not unexpected. For almost a year, Glenn and George Soros have been saying virtually the same thing about Europe’s future. And considering the power and influence George Soros has in this White House, one can only assume the President has been aware of this situation for a long time, and he has not been telling the American public the truth about what lies ahead.

“You don't ignore the most powerful man on the planet – and that's not the President; that's George Soros,” Glenn concluded. “You don't ignore the man who has paid the salary and helped you get up from the ranks. You listen to that man. So they knew. And yet they discredited anybody else that was saying Europe is going to collapse.”

“It's, we're all tied together. Mutually assured economic destruction. The President has zero credibility on the economy. None.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
