Why the change of heart? President Obama referred to Obamacare as ‘Obamacare’ just 2 times since Oct. 1 launch

Remember just days before the October 1 rollout of the Obamacare exchanges when President Obama said one day everyone will want to take credit for Obamacare. During a speech in Maryland on September 26, the President boldly declared:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Once it’s working really well, I guarantee you, they will not call it Obamacare. Here is a prediction for you. A few years from now, when people are using this to get coverage, everybody is feeling good about the choices they’ve got, there are going to be a whole bunch of folks that will say, yeah, yeah, I always thought this provision was excellent. I voted for that thing. You watch. It will not be called Obamacare.

In President Obama’s mind, Obamacare was going to be such an overwhelming success, anyone and everyone would want to take credit for the law and, therefore, would stop referring to it as Obamcare. Well, we know the law – so far – is nowhere near the overwhelming success he promised, but, curiously, the President has stopped referring to the Affordable Care Act as Obamacare pretty much cold turkey. Why the change of heart?

“So Stu said recently, you know, ‘I'm hearing the President say the Affordable Care Act an awful lot where it [used to be] Obamacare over and over and over again.’ And I said, ‘Really? Can you do a real quick chart for me and see what he was saying before the launch and what he's saying now,’” Glenn explained on radio this morning. “And I always say this because he claimed that it was going to be so great that nobody like me would ever call it Obamacare. We would start calling it the Affordable Care Act because it would be so great, we wouldn't want him to get credit. So has he taken his own advice when it turned out that it was exactly what we said it would be: A nightmare.”

To be fair, prior to the October 1 rollout of healthcare.gov, President Obama would oscillate between calling the law Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act. Since October 1, however, his rhetoric has taken a dramatic turn.

“Let's take the past few months,” Stu said. “In July in his speeches, he said the Affordable Care Act 16 times and Obamacare 15 times. So right about even. Again in August, about even. He used the Affordable Care Act 10 times and Obamacare 7 times. Okay? Now we're up to the ramp-up period – September – it's about to launch, the buildup is coming. You might think maybe he has a thought that there's going to be some problems. In September he went 44 times Affordable Care Act, 15 times Obamacare.”

It is what has happened since October 1, however, that is particularly telling.

“So the first two months were about a one-to-one ratio. Then he goes to a three-to-one ratio a little before September. A little odd, a little increase there, however, it's October where it actually launches where he goes to a 50-to-2 – two Obamacare mentions… A 25-to-1 ratio Affordable Care Act to Obamacare.”

Below is a graph that shows the ratio of President's usage of 'Affordable Care Act' versus 'Obamacare':

"He knew in September it was going to be bad,” Glenn concluded. “So here's the thing. He knew it was going to be bad. This verifies that his aides did tell him in advance. He knew in advance. Otherwise why the sudden change, Mr. President?”

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:
