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."

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
