Say It Ain't So: Glenn Predicts One More Obama SOTU

Tonight on TheBlaze TV, Glenn and his cohorts will watch the State of the Union in what's been dubbed Political Science Theater 3000.

"It's the four of us sitting on a couch watching the State of the Union," Glenn explained. "We did it last year, and it's the only way to watch it without your head exploding."

While Glenn has been saying this would be the last SOTU by Obama, he made an unfortunate prediction Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program: Obama will give one more State of the Union address before leaving office.

"No way this president gives up a chance to say, 'And here's what I've accomplished.' No way," Glenn declared. "Mark my words. Next year, he will deliver another State of the Union."

Watch this complimentary segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: So I'm looking at the past State of the Union addresses and their dates. Yes, I have absolutely no life. But looking at the dates of the State of the Union address, particularly this president's dates of the State of the Union address makes me say, "This is not going to be this president's last State of the Union." Oh, my gosh.

JEFFY: Wait. What?

GLENN: He's not going to give up the presidency. I knew it. I knew it. Marshal law is right around the corner.

Well, that's one way to look at it. The other is with facts. I don't think this is going to be the last time we hear from the president in a State of the Union. I'll tell you why, right now.

(music)

(laughter)

GLENN: This is incredible.

(laughter)

I hope I'm wrong on this. Okay.

We've been celebrating that tonight we're going to be doing Political Science Theater 3000. And it's on TheBlaze. And it's the four of us sitting on a couch watching the -- watching the State of the Union and you can watch it with us as we comment all the way through. We did it last year. And it's the only way to watch it without your head exploding. It's lots of fun. Political Science Theater. And you can watch it tonight only on TheBlaze. Sign up for TheBlaze TV at TheBlaze.com/TV. So we've been saying, this is the last one. There's the good news. This is the last one.

Until you look at the dates that this president has given the State of the Union. Remember, the State of the Union comes when the president says he's going to deliver the State of the Union.

If you go back into the 1960s and John F. Kennedy, it was January 11th. January 14th. January 8th. January 4th. January 12th. January 10. January 17. January 14.

So in the 1960s, it was in the first two weeks of January. Then you go down and you look at -- let's just pick it up at 2004. January 20th. February 2nd. January 31st. January 23rd. January 28. February 24th. This first one, Barack Obama. February 24th. January 27. January 25. January 24. February 12th. January 28. January 20th.

What's the date today? Is today the 12th?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: That's the earliest one in a decade. Why do I say this is going to be the -- why do I say the president is not going to be -- this isn't going to be the last one? Because the last big, huge progressive president we had was Jimmy Carter. And on January 16th, 1981, he gave his last State of the Union. Everybody else gives that State of the Union to the next president.

PAT: So four days before Reagan took office, he's delivering the State of the Union address.

GLENN: He's delivering the State of the Union.

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: Jimmy Carter. Everybody else gives it to the next guy.

JEFFY: No way.

GLENN: No way this president gives up a chance to say, "And here's what I've accomplished." No way. Mark my words. Next year, he will deliver another State of the Union.

STU: I love this prediction. So Carter did it.

GLENN: Carter did it. Nobody else.

STU: Huh.

GLENN: Carter did it.

PAT: Bush certainly didn't do it.

GLENN: No, uh-uh. Clinton didn't do it. Reagan didn't do it. All of them leave it for the next guy.

STU: So he's essentially -- do you think he's doing it early this year to kind of prep people for, this is the time it happens?

GLENN: Yes, yes. Because all of them have been in late January or early February.

PAT: I'm not trying to steal their thunder. I did it last year on the 12th.

GLENN: You bet. You bet. You bet.

PAT: That's what he's going to do.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: He's going to do another State of the Union next year. Mark my words. Write that down in your calendar.

JEFFY: Stu, what was it you were saying earlier about no hope?

STU: Yeah, that's fascinating. You can say that if it's never been done before, what are the odds that he's going to come up with this new practice? But Jimmy Carter did it.

GLENN: Jimmy Carter did it. And they're the same kind of guy.

JEFFY: And they're able to say, "He's not the first one to have done it."

GLENN: That's right. Jimmy Carter did this back in 1981.

STU: But, I mean, think of the Carter circumstance too. A radical shift in the direction of the country.

GLENN: Yes. If it's Ted Cruz, he definitely does it.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: He definitely does it.

STU: I mean, if it's Hillary, you think it's less likely. But also, he's not exactly in love with Hillary. So...

GLENN: No, he's an egomaniac.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: He's not going to let that last stage -- that last chance for him to say something eloquent, uplifting, and stirring, and have the waters recede after he speaks. He's going to take that opportunity. You know it. You know it.

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.
