Was Glenn disappointed with Romney's debate performance?

Tonight on TV, Glenn had the audience take a look back at the debates between President Barack Obama and candidate Mitt Romney. While there were several opportunities for Romney to really hammer Obama during the debates (and Glenn didn't hesitate to point all of them out during the show), Mitt Romney decided to go a different direction. He decided not to lower himself to attacks, and not to engage the President during the several instances during the foreign policy debate where he was clearly being baited.

What did Glenn think? What was his reaction when Romney decided not to go after him on issues like Libya and the Muslim Brotherhood?

"He shocked everyone like me in the audience and let Obama off the hook.  He talked about the region in general and how conditions have deteriorated, but decided not to mention anything about the administration ignoring warnings, nor the blatant politicking and outright lies in the days and weeks after the attacks," Glenn explained.

A series of thoughts ran through Glenn's head: It's not what I would do...What planet is Mitt on...I hope he returns to Earth soon...God will understand if I have a drink because of this, right...

Clearly, he wasn't exactly happy as he was watching the performance. But when the blood stopped boiling and shooting out of his eyes, he realized what was really going on.Glenn felt that Romney was being more Presidential, and was winning over undecided women and voters in the process. It wasn't the strategy Glenn would have used, but in the end may help Romney more in the long run than most people are anticipating.

"This debate was not made for me or you," Glenn explained. "Obama was firing up his base, Romney was expanding it.

Because he was going after the independent undecideds. He had to first do no harm, not look combative and not look like a war monger."

Romney also tied foreign policy back to domestic economic policy, not only playing to his strength but showing that he has command over the central issues of this election season.

Glenn encouraged viewers to share the video below to anyone they know who isn't decided who the truly presidential candidate was in the debates:

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
