Why did Romney go soft on Obama in final debate? Glenn has an idea

"I think I know why Mitt did not punch back last night," Glenn said on the radio show this morning.

"On Libya he gave him a total and complete pass.  I don't begin to understand it.  On Afghanistan the same thing.  He could have hit him with the actual numbers of the war."

Glenn said Romney could have also brought the Muslim Brotherhood and his failure to pass a budget. Romney could have (again) talked about Obama's personal investments in overseas countries like China. He could have brought up G.M.'s outsourcing jobs to China even though Obama and his administration dumped taxpayer money into the company.

But he didn't

Even FOX News Chris Wallace reached out to a Romney aide to ask why he was being so soft on some of these issues. Wallace explained, "I emailed one of his top aides in the course of the debate, and said what’s behind this strategy? And clearly he was not taking the bait, not getting into fights with Barack Obama. And this official said that it was all Mitt Romney’s idea. This is how he wants to conduct the debate."

Why did he choose this strategy?

"I strongly believe that Mitt Romney is probably one of the most prayed for men on the planet right now.  I believe Mr. Romney prays on his knees every day.  I know he prays before the debates. I don't know if it was the right thing, but I believe he is being guided and I believe he believes it's important to be less contentious. It may be he's doing what the Lord wants him to do right now.  A lot of people that are conservatives and who have been walking down this road for a long time, we wanted him to eviscerate the President last night - metaphorically speaking.  But our ways aren't necessarily His ways.  And I hope and pray and believe that Mitt Romney is trying to seek out His way," Glenn said.

"We are now 14 days away.  In two weeks' time America goes to vote for the next President of the United States.  In two weeks' time we go to a polling booth.  We close the curtain (along with the dead people that voted in the other booth), and we choose and the path couldn't be clearer.  It just couldn't be clearer."

" Last night you saw somebody who took the stage that appeared to me to be George Washington.  Now a guy who I don't necessarily agree with.  It's going to be -- I hope Romney understands that just because we vote for him doesn't mean we agree with him on everything.  And just because we may stand against him on certain policies doesn't mean we hate him.  We just believe in principles and some of the things that he said last night I don't agree with.  At all.  But that's where he is.  And I think that the American people have a very, very clear choice."

"Mitt Romney is trying to do the right thing, and trying to be an honorable man, which I haven't seen in Washington in a long, long time.  And he made a conscious choice.  I think he could have eviscerated him last night but he didn't.  I don't know why.  I think you saw last night for those with eyes and ears, you saw somebody who's model may be George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, and another who's model was Saul Alinsky ."

"The question, the only one that remains is, are we more Washington or more Alinsky now.  We decide in 14 days."

Candace Owens, BLEXIT founder and author of the upcoming book, "Blackout," joined Glenn Beck on Friday's GlennTV for an exclusive interview. available only to BlazeTV subscribers.

Candace dropped a few truth-bombs about the progressive movement and what's happening to the Democratic Party. She said people are practically running away from the left due to their incessant push to dig up dirt on anybody who disagrees with their radical ideology. She explained how -- like China and its "social credit score" -- the left is shaping America into its own nightmarish episode of "Black Mirror."

"This game of making sure that everyone is politically correct is a societal atom bomb. There are no survivors. There's no one that is perfect," Candace said. "The idea that humanity can be perfect is Godless. If you accept that there is something greater than us, then you accept that we a flawed. To be human is to be flawed."

Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower during the Obama administration, was found dead near Plymouth, California, on Friday.

Authorities said 66-year-old Haney died from a single gunshot wound to his chest, which was determined to be "self-inflicted." Read more on this here.

Haney was a good friend to Glenn Beck and the program. On radio Monday, Glenn said it's almost impossible for him to believe that the man he knew so well could have taken his own life.

"He was one of the most honorable men I've ever met," Glenn said. "A guy who was willing to put himself in danger. A guy who knew what he was dealing with, knew that he could be killed, or that he would be disappeared, or that he could go to prison. And he was absolutely unafraid. And this is one reason why I know, why I so strongly feel that he didn't kill himself."
