Mea culpa? Not quite. Obama says he is sorry… kinda

Following an interview with NBC News’ Chuck Todd that aired last night, the media is widely reporting that President Obama has buried the hatchet and officially apologized to the Americans who lost their health insurance as a result of Obamacare.

“I want to play quickly the kind of ‘I'm sorry’ from the President,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Listen to his apology for this national nightmare that is Obamacare, where they say now 128 million Americans will lose their healthcare. Is he sorry about this? Listen to this apology.”

While the words “I’m sorry” were indeed muttered, there is, as usual, a definite lack of accountability on his part. Over at CNN, it was debated whether or not the President’s remarks were a really showing of culpability or was he merely paying lip service to the millions of Americans (many of whom voted for him), who are now realizing the true implications of this law.

VOICE: You heard the words there: I am sorry. But you also heard a whole lot of things before. You know we might have misled, we weren't as clear as we needed to be. He didn't run into the "I'm sorry" part.

VOICE: No. This President has been very reluctant to really take the reins of accountability when it comes to this colossal screw-up with healthcare.gov.

“Hang on just a second. He's been very reluctant to take the reins of responsibility in this particular case,” Glenn asked. “I challenge anyone in America to show me where this man has taken the reins of responsibility. Tell me where he has taken the reins of responsibility of anything… that has gone wrong. Not a single thing. And where does this come from? The man doesn't take the reins of responsibility in his own life! He couldn't have gotten there all by himself. He would have never made it. He wouldn't have ever done this. You don't build something. You can't create something! He's never responsible. He's never responsible for his own actions, even the good things, with an exception of killing Osama Bin Laden."

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.
