Are Romney and Obama really the same? Rand Paul weighs in with his views on the election, Libya, and foreign policy.

Rand Paul called into the radio show this morning to discuss several pertinent issues, including the unfolding situation in Libya as well as the 2012 Presidential election.

"It sure smacks of a coverup and sort of a politization of something that was a serious problem," Paul said. "I would have asked Mr. President where were the uniformed Marines? How come that the ambassador had no Marines protecting himself? And in light of this latest information how come nobody was sent in to help."

"What has really angered me about this whole situation is four days after President Obama turned down the DC3 the plane they wanted for security that they requested, four days later he spent $100,000 greening up the embassy in Vienna promoting his global warming initiative and really when you are making political statements with State Department dollars and you will not provide security for probably the most dangerous country in the world. I think it's inexcusable and unacceptable. If the buck stops with the President somebody should be fired, and he should make a decision that somebody made a grievous error," Senator Paul continued.

Earlier in the month, ABC News obtained an internal State Department email from May 3, 2012, wherein the State Department denied a request from the security team at the Libyan embassy for a DC-3 airplane that would help the team in their duties. Ambassador Stevens was copied on the exchange.

ABC News spoke with a government official who explained the advantages of such a plane. They reported:

The U.S. government official who provided the email to ABC News – and wanted to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the matter – described the small DC-3 plane as an asset for a security team to more freely and safely move throughout the country, and to more easily transport arms and other security equipment. In short, having the plane allowed the security team to better perform its duties, the official said.

The State Department official acknowledged that the plane was used to get around Libya, not just to get in and out of the country. But once commercial air service was re-established, the State Department decided that the SST didn’t need the plane anymore. The security team, it would seem, disagreed.

Told of the State Department’s explanation, the House Oversight Committee spokesman said the “State Department’s naive determination to follow rigid bureaucratic policies, instead of making common sense decisions that took the serious threat of terrorism conveyed by those on the ground into account, appears to have been a significant factor in the Benghazi Consulate’s lack of preparedness.”

Glenn also asked Rand Paul about the libertarian point of view and the two party system. Glenn said that while he's libertarian, he believes the process of pulling back the roll of government needs to be a slow and gradual one. This viewpoint contrasts with some libertarians who want radical changes quickly, a philosophy that Glenn believes will cause chaos.

Glenn pointed out that Ron Paul, Rand's father and libertarian hero to many radicals, has refused to acknowledge a difference between Romney and Obama. Glenn wondered if Rand agreed with his father or if he saw a difference.

" To me it's more a general philosophic difference in the sense that President Obama truly believes that the answer to making the economy grow is to grow government and I think Governor Romney believes the opposite. That you have to grow the private sector to have a government sector at all. That it's paid for by the private sector. Those are just two opposite philosophies.  Now is my father right sometimes on foreign policy?  Do both of them believe in intervening everywhere all the time? I think our foreign policy has been too much everywhere all the time. I think we should moderate where we are and keep in mind the national defense of our country is very important and being everywhere all the time is sometimes counter-productive," Senator Paul said.

"So I think there's some similarities sometimes on the foreign policy.  When you watch the debate you don't see a difference really on foreign policy."

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
