‘I’ve had enough’: Glenn reacts to ‘one of the most agonizing speeches ever delivered’

In theory, the Obamacare enrollment period ended on Monday. In reality, anyone who claims to have attempted to signup at some point in time will be granted a two-week extension. That didn’t stop President Obama, however, from calling his lackeys (aka the media) to the Rose Garden on Tuesday to celebrate the success of his signature healthcare law. On radio this morning, Glenn just about lost it as he reacted to “one of the most agonizing speeches ever delivered.”

“Well, the President gave a speech yesterday – one of the most agonizing speeches ever delivered… I'm done with him,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “It is the press [who] decided, ‘We don't really need to say anything about this. Let's just go with the flow. He says it's 7 million [signups]. Let's just say it's 7 million.”

Glenn, Pat, and Stu ran through some of the more bizarre triumphs and blatant mistruths spewed by President Obama yesterday, as he basked in the glow of his so-called success.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: … And in these first six months, we’ve taken a big step forward. And just as importantly, this law is bringing greater security to Americans who already have coverage. Because of the Affordable Care Act, 100 million Americans have gained free preventive care, like mammograms and contraceptive care, under their existing plans. (Applause.)

“100 million? 100 million people have received condoms,” Glenn asked. “We're paying for people's condoms – 100 million people?”

“No, they're free,” Pat joked. “We're not paying for anything. It's free – free sex for 100 million people in this country… I guess we've got a condom tree that sprouts up and a birth control pill tree.”

PRESIDENT OBAMA: … But the bottom line is this: Under this law, the share of Americans with insurance is up and the growth of health care costs is down, and that’s good for our middle class and that’s good for our fiscal future. (Applause.)

Forget the fact that President Obama once promised every American family would see a $2,500 savings under Obamacare. When you consider the figures Glenn outlined on radio yesterday from RAND and McInsey studies, previously uninsured Americans aren’t actually signing up for coverage at the volume the Administration had hoped for.

“Who believes this? In the press, who believes this? You report it as a fact. Who actually believes it? You weasels in the press: None of you believe this. All of you know this is not true. And yet you report it. How do you sleep at night?”

PRESIDENT OBAMA: …Now, that doesn’t mean that all the problems in health care have been solved forever. Premiums are still rising for families who have insurance, whether you get it through your employer or you buy it on your own -- that’s been true every year for decades. But, so far, those premiums have risen more slowly since the Affordable Care Act passed than at any time in the past 50 years.

“The promise was premiums would go down,” Pat said. “Not up slower but down $2,500.”

When you consider how deeply subsidized these new Obamacare plans are, there is nothing remotely impressive about the fact premiums have “risen more slowly.”

“That's not impressive. That's nothing to be acknowledged or praised,” Stu explained. “But the costs are going up. The premiums are going up. And who's paying them? If the government pays them or I pay them, the premiums are still the same.”

PRESIDENT OBAMA: … But this law is doing what it’s supposed to do. It’s working. It’s helping people from coast to coast, all of which makes the lengths to which critics have gone to scare people or undermine the law, or try to repeal the law without offering any plausible alternative so hard to understand.

At this point, Glenn really couldn’t take it anymore. In fact, Glenn argued the only thing differentiating President Obama from a dictator is a balcony and military uniform.

“I'm not kidding you. You put him on a balcony in a military uniform, and this guy is a full-pledged dictator. There has never been any president who has ever done anything like this,” Glenn said. “The guy goes down and everybody knows the crowd is there to clap… In Soviet Union, everyone knew that was a game. It was a circus. And what are we doing? We're watching a circus happening in our own country and we all know it… This is completely bogus.”

PRESIDENT OBAMA: …Why are folks working so hard for people not to have health insurance? Why are they so mad about the idea of folks having health insurance? Many of the tall tales that have been told about this law have been debunked. There are still no death panels. (Laughter.) Armageddon has not arrived. Instead, this law is helping millions of Americans, and in the coming years it will help millions more.

“We're told this guy is the adult in the room,” Stu said. “That is the most childish argument… There are people very closely tied to [this] Administration who advocated for things specifically called ‘death panels.’”

The straw that ultimately broke the camel’s back – for Glenn, anyway – came when President Obama claimed his Administration has not been on a multi-million dollar advertising blitz to promote the law. In fact, President Obama had the audacity to say they “didn’t make a hard sell.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: … And we didn’t make a hard sell. We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did. But what we said was, look for yourself, see if it’s good for your family. And a whole lot of people decided it was. So I want to thank everybody who worked so hard to make sure that we arrived at this point today.

“Would anyone like any factual backing for those claims,” Stu asked. “Obamacare outreach… will cost at least $684 million annually.”

Where does that $684 million figure come from, you might ask? None other than the uber conservative (sarcasm) Huffington Post. Section 4002 of the Affordable Care Act actually lays out the law’s PR budget. According to Townhall, in 2010 the promotion budget was $500 million, in 2011, $750 million, 2012, $1 billion, 2013, $1.25 billion, 2014, $1.5 billion and in 2015 and on, $2 billion!

“Oh, my gosh,” Glenn bemoaned. “Hey, mainstream media. Where are you?”

Ultimately, Glenn ended a very frustrating hour of radio with a plea to the American people. While he is “done preaching to the choir,” he is not “done being an American.” It is time to say enough is enough and replace the people who are running this country into the ground.

“Here's my current state of mind… I'm done with this government wasting my life… It has nothing to do with Barack Obama,” Glenn declared. “We have the worst people in our country running our country – on both sides of the aisle. And they're lying to us. They're sociopaths. And the media must be sociopathic as well because they have no conscience. They can report it as fact. And they can sleep at night.”

“I have things and stuff I'm supposed to do and it's not waste my life talking about these people. It's not. I can't take it… Have you decided that whatever it is you're supposed to do? Maybe it has nothing to do with politics. Have you decided: I'm going to do what I was born to do,” he continued. “All men were created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I have a right to pursue my happiness. I have a right to do what I was born to do – not what they tell me what to do. That's what that phrase means. Have you had enough? My state of mind is great because I've had enough.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
