PAT: Kevin in Columbus, you are on the Glenn Beck program.
CALLER: Yeah, I am glad I came right behind this veteran. I'm a veteran myself and I don't feel like my face was slapped. And the thing is this man can, no matter what, he can do nothing right for you people that oppose him. Just like when he showed up at the ceremony.
PAT: Wait a minute.
CALLER: Somehow it's a photo op. So no matter what he does
PAT: Hang on, Kevin.
CALLER: You guys are going to have something to say, I don't care what it is.
PAT: Can we
CALLER: And also he got credit this morning I heard from Ms. Palin about removing "In God we trust" from the front of the coin. I guess it's on the edge of the coin. Actually that was brought up in 2005 approved by President Bush. But
PAT: Wait a minute. Slow down, Kevin. Kevin, can you hang on a second? Hang on. I can't speak for what Sarah Palin says. I haven't even seen the story yet.
CALLER: You speak for what she says any other time. Now why is that?
PAT: I do not speak for Sarah Palin. I can only answer for what we're doing.
CALLER: You uphold what she says. You agree with
PAT: As I told you, I haven't even seen the story yet. Obviously he's not responsible for that. That was done we were seeing stories about "In God we trust" on the side of the coin instead of the front or the back a year or two ago. And so that's been going on for a long time. Listen, Kevin, I'm leading to a point here, if you would hang on. Hang on. Kevin, Kevin, this is the Glenn Beck program, not the Kevin program, all right?
CALLER: Yeah, but I called this program a couple of times and you guys hang up.
PAT: Kevin, I'm trying desperately to work with you here, okay? Will you allow me to do that?
CALLER: As long as you don't hang up on me.
PAT: I'm not going to hang up on you.
PAT: As long as you're reasonable.
CALLER: I am. Okay, go right ahead.
PAT: Now, if I can get in, a word in.
CALLER: You can.
PAT: I would like to know now, you said we don't give him credit for anything. What do you give Barack Obama credit for so far?
CALLER: Okay, I give him credit for having the guts to try to change a healthcare system for one that for so many years is sucking us dry. I just had an incident a couple of months ago
PAT: Wait a minute. I don't no soliloquies here, okay? No monologue. You give him credit for hang on, Kevin
CALLER: You are not working with me like you said.
PAT: I'm trying to. I'm trying to desperately. God bless you. I let you you gave the example! Now I'm trying to respond to the example.
CALLER: If you will let me
PAT: Sarah, can you bring them down for a second? Okay. You gave the example. Now I'm going to address the example. How can I give him credit for something over which I feel is about to destroy the country? Kevin, when you're trying to fix a problem and the problem is let's say, let's say that a car has bad tires on it, okay? Are you with me so far? You've produced a car. It has bad tires. You don't throw the car out the window. You don't demolish the car. You change the tires, okay? The healthcare system we currently have does have flaws. Let's say it has a flat tire. Let's fix the tire. Let's not smash, demolish and throw into the scrap heap the car. We have the best healthcare system in the world, Kevin. Do you disagree with that?
CALLER: I disagree with that, yeah.
PAT: Who Kevin, who has a better healthcare system than the United States of America? Share it with me now. Who?
CALLER: I don't know because this is the one I'm in. I don't really know.
PAT: How can you not say please don't make ridiculous statements on the show then.
CALLER: That's what you are doing. You are talking about
PAT: If you can't think of a single other country turn him down again. If you can't think of another country that has a better system, how can you say we don't have the best? I mean, there's a lot of countries that come immediately to mind. Cuba has a system like we're talking about going to. Great Britain has a system. Many other countries. Canada has a healthcare system that is run by their government, okay? We have the those, the leaders of those countries all come here when they're sick. All come here, from Prince Charles to Fidel Castro. Well, he didn't come here, but he went to Spain, okay? So he went elsewhere for healthcare because their system sucks, Kevin. So other than healthcare, what else has Barack Obama done that we should give him a chance on?
CALLER: I mean, everything that he's tried to do, you are not giving him a chance to
PAT: Let's not speak in generalities. I've given him a chance on Afghanistan; he's made no decision. The day he came into office, he signed the abortion funding around the world. He raised he's raising taxes left and right. He lied about lobbyists. Are you okay with that? He said he wasn't going to have a single lobbyist. He lied about it! That's already completely out the window. You're okay with that? You're okay with communist Van Jones. You are okay with Marxist Mark Lloyd. You're okay with extremist John Holdren, Cass Sunstein, Anita Dunn, all of these Maoists, these don't mean a thing to you, Kevin, seriously? You don't have any problem with this?
CALLER: You are making a mountain out of a molehill.
PAT: Communists are making a mountain out of a hole hill? Kevin, please, please, Kevin, Kevin, Kevin. Kevin! Hang on. I've been waiting for a caller like you for months now. Are you seriously going to tell me in the United States of America that communists and Marxists in the United States government, that's a molehill? Are you seriously going to get on this show and make that statement?
CALLER: That's right. Because I see it. I see it every day. I listen to you guys every day, and you are making the same accusations, getting everybody all worked up in a frenzy for nothing.
PAT: Are they false? Kevin, are they false?
CALLER: Most of them are, yeah.
CALLER: Are the accusations we've made false? Can you show gray) Okay, if there is any merit to any communists or Marxists in this government, if there's any merit to it, that's a molehill?
CALLER: You call them communists and Marxists. That's not what I call them.
PAT: No, no. No, no. Van Jones called himself a communist. Kevin, get off the phone. I'm done with you. You're pathetic. That is unbelievable to me. There is an example of an absolute blind follower of Barack Obama. No problem with his statement last Thursday, no problem with communists in the government. Self admitted communists like Van Jones. Haters of the free market system like Mark Lloyd, John Holdren, Cass Sunstein, manufacturing czar whose name escapes me right now. Are you kidding me? That's not a problem? Since when? 888 727 BECK. 888 727 BECK. Pat Gray on the Glenn Beck program.
