Rush: If Conservatism Is the Answer, Ted Cruz Is Your Guy

Another big name in conservative radio is seeing the light on Ted Cruz — finally.

"I want to tell you something that Rush Limbaugh said that I was reading last night in the car. And, quite honestly, I mean, it's about time," Glenn said Friday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Glenn went on to share what the legendary talk radio host said about Ted Cruz.

"Limbaugh said that Jeb Bush and John Kasich are moving left as fast as Dion Sanders can backpedal. And he reminded listeners that no conservative would ever have to fret about Ted Cruz suddenly shifting to the left. He said, 'Ted Cruz is the closest in our lifetime to Ronald Reagan. If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz.'"

Rush also had a few things to say about Donald Trump. For example, he said he believes Trump is not ideological, that he doesn't view Charles Schumer as a "screaming liberal" or Ted Cruz as a "screaming conservative."

"In Trump's world, it's just a bunch of incompetent failures," Rush said. "They're a bunch of time-wasting lumps of humanity that have no business doing what they're doing because they're losers."

Glenn went on to quote Rush as saying, "This is why those who view conservatism as the answer have no choice here. Ted Cruz is your guy. There's no one even close."

Thank you, Rush.

GLENN: I am in South Carolina today for Ted Cruz. Spoke to a great crowd last night. I was at Tommy's Ham House this morning, which I've never -- you know, I've never done any political stuff before. And it's just -- it's a different world. It's totally a different world. Running for president is just a crazy, crazy thing. Anyway, they have ten times the ground game here in South Carolina for Ted Cruz. Ten times than what they had in Iowa. And what they had in Iowa was one of the best ground games in American political history. Ten times that today.

They have already knocked on 93,937 doors. They expect to knock on the 100,000th door here in South Carolina sometime today. Some polls are showing that it's very tight. Other polls show it's ten points with Ted Cruz. We'll get into some of those polls a little later. And, of course, Stu has the poll update in hour number three.

Also, I want to tell you something that Rush Limbaugh said that I was reading last night in the car. And, quite honestly, I mean, it's about time. Here's what he said about Ted Cruz. He said -- Limbaugh said that Jeb Bush and John Kasich are moving left as fast as Dion Sanders can backpedal. And he reminded listeners that no conservative would ever have to fret about Ted Cruz suddenly shifting to the left. He said, "Ted Cruz is the closest in our lifetime to Ronald Reagan."

If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz. Because you're exactly right, this is the closest in our lifetime we've ever been to Ronald Reagan. He then pivoted to Donald Trump. And listen to what he said. He said HEP Donald Trump is not an ideological definition of conservatism.

My point all along, quoting Rush Limbaugh. One of my theories was demonstrated. Trump is not ideological. He said, "Trump doesn't view Charles Schumer as a screaming liberal or Cruz as a screaming conservative. In Trump's world, it's not liberalism -- although it is -- in Trump's world, it's just a bunch of incompetent failures. They're a bunch of time-wasting lumps of humanity that have no business doing what they're doing because they're losers. They're kitty cats. Whatever they are, whether they're conservative or liberal or what have you. This is why those who view conservatism as the answer have no choice here." I'm still quoting. "Ted Cruz is your guy. There's no one even close."

That's Ted Cruz -- that's Rush Limbaugh on Ted Cruz.

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.
