PAT: There's a couple of other polls that show him with a much wider spread. Like one of them shows him 55 40. Another one shows him up by 9.
GLENN: You know what bothers me about this? Is that Barack Obama went up to Massachusetts anyway and then they are saying that the White House is building expectations that she's going to lose. I it doesn't feel right to me.
PAT: Yeah, it's
GLENN: Doesn't feel right to me.
PAT: It's weird.
GLENN: I don't trust these guys at all.
PAT: It's weird because the president stuck his neck out in both Virginia and New Jersey and got it chopped off. So
GLENN: But you know what?
PAT: Politically speaking.
GLENN: There is a, there is something to say for that. He's got to go up there and give them everything they got because if she doesn't win, here's somebody in trouble. And he's telling everybody in congress, "Hey, I'm going to be there for ya, don't worry, don't worry, you just go ahead and vote for healthcare and I'm going to be there." And then he doesn't go up for a close race like this? I mean, he really is in a
PAT: He's in a tough situation.
GLENN: He's in a lose lose situation here.
STU: Yeah. And from an agenda perspective, it doesn't this doesn't necessarily stop healthcare but it has a chance of stopping healthcare. This is the only
GLENN: When he goes up and campaigns in Ted Kennedy for Ted Kennedy's seat, as they like to call it, and he doesn't even mention healthcare. He didn't even mention it. He's stumping her? He doesn't mention healthcare.
STU: In Massachusetts.
GLENN: Hello. You see the latest Washington Post poll? The Washington Post is doing a story right now. Poll shows growing disappointment, polarization over Obama's performance. A year into his presidency President Obama faces polarized nation, soaring public assessments of his effort to change Washington, according to a Washington Post ABC News poll. Nearly half of all Americans say Obama is not delivering on his major campaign promises and a narrow majority have some or no confidence that he will make the right decisions for the country's future. A majority now have some or no confidence that he will make the right decision for the country's future. More than a third see the president as falling short of their expectations. About double the proportion saying so at the 100 day mark. 63% say the president has accomplished a great deal or a good amount. Now that portion has dropped to 47%. What it doesn't go into in this, in the news story from the Washington Post, the Washington Post didn't report that their own poll now shows most Americans want smaller government with fewer services. 58% say they favor a smaller government with fewer services and only 38% say they favor a larger government with more services. This is what they're up against. This is why they're jamming it through. The American people are not for any of this. But I you know, when you have the left going for Saul Alinsky and saying, hey, Saul Alinsky's right, Saul Alinsky is right. It doesn't matter. The ends justify the means, do whatever you have to do and then you have people like Ed Schultz getting on television and saying I'd cheat if I had I'd vote nine, ten times if I had to. They will. They will. This is the state where the Kennedys have been in charge for a very long time. Barney Frank. I mean, this is a mini Chicago. This has to be a blowout. For this to actually, for you to be able to count on it, there has to be a 10 point spread.
Susan, you are on the Glenn Beck program.
GLENN: Hi, Susan, go ahead.
CALLER: Hi, Glenn, how are you?
GLENN: Very good.
CALLER: Good. It was electric yesterday at the Scott Brown rally. There was so many people there that the police had to block off the street. And then he had to set up two satellite buildings to hold everyone that was there. It was just incredible. We were at the Crowne Plaza hotel ballroom and it was packed. You couldn't even move. And I don't even know what it was like in the main rally which was at Mechanic Hall in Worcester.
GLENN: Now, it is supposed to be, it is supposed to be lousy weather tomorrow, right?
CALLER: Tomorrow, for Tuesday? Cloudy. It snowed here last night. So, yeah, the weather's not the best. Doesn't matter. I'll be going.
GLENN: What are you feeling, what are you feeling on the ground with what's her name, Margaret, Martha?
PAT: Marsha, that's what it is.
GLENN: Patrick Kennedy is giving a speech for her, introducing her, calls her the wrong name three times. That's beautiful.
CALLER: Well, they can't even spell Massachusetts right in their ad. So what do you expect?
GLENN: I know. What is the what are the supporters like for Marta?
CALLER: Well, when they were out there yesterday, there was probably 35 or 40 of them across the street from where we were and they were just standing there with signs. They weren't saying anything, they weren't talking back. They were just standing there like robots. It was nothing. We were electric. We were, you know, going for it and they just stood there. And I don't know anyone personally that's going to vote for her. Everyone is so upset about the healthcare. That they are going for him.
GLENN: Well, why is it they are all for the healthcare
CALLER: They are all for him stopping the healthcare.
GLENN: Oh, stopping healthcare.
CALLER: Yeah, they are voting to stop healthcare.
GLENN: Susan, do you believe him?
CALLER: You know, Glenn, he seems like he's a really good guy. My gut tells me that he's sincere. And that's the only thing I can go by. You know, I mean, politicians have lied to us so many times in our lives, what do you do? You just go by your gut feeling. And I get the gut feeling he's sincere. After the rally at Mechanics Hall which is where he was mainly speaking she came to each satellite and talked to each of us and told us thank you for coming out. And the look on his face when he walked into that ballroom was, he was blown away at how many people were there. Now, he's either a really great actor or he's very sincere. I don't know. I can only go by my gut.
GLENN: Well, it's, let's hope for the best, prepare for the worst but hope for the best.
CALLER: Hope for the best, exactly.
GLENN: Thanks a lot, Susan, I appreciate it. I'd like to you know, Stu, can you see if we can get a hold of Scott?
STU: Yeah, we've been efforting.
GLENN: You've been efforting the situation? I'd like to talk to him.
PAT: He at least knows that there's still terrorists in Afghanistan.
STU: That's always a positive.
GLENN: I can't believe that this race is this close.
PAT: Well, you have to remember, though, that she started out 19 or 23 points ahead of him.
STU: Yeah, he has no right being in this race.
PAT: He has, by all rates this should be over before it even started. And she won the Democratic nomination by 19 points. So she's got enormous name recognition. She had everything going for her. She had all the money, she had all the recognition, she has all the
GLENN: She had a great vacation.
PAT: She had a great vacation and apparently that's when he started making headway and then she started making statements like this.
VOICE: If the goal was and the mission in Afghanistan was to go in because we believed that the Taliban was giving harbor to terrorists, we supported that, I supported that goal. They are gone. They are not there anymore.
PAT: And then to call Curt Schilling a Yankees fan as she did over the weekend. Curt Schilling is a Red Sox legend and brought them, you know, the world series title.
GLENN: That's like something I would say.
PAT: Yeah, it is.
GLENN: In what context did she say that?
STU: Is it a joke?
GLENN: He's a supporter of Scott Brown, right?
PAT: Yeah. She was being interviewed and Dan Rhea said, yeah, but she was mentioning that she had, I don't know, somebody on her side. And the guy counters with, yeah, but now Scott Brown has Curt Schilling, okay? To which Coakley said, yeah, another Yankee fan. The interviewer says, Schilling? She says, yes. And he says, Curt Schilling, a Yankee fan? She says, uh oh, no, all right, I'm wrong on I'm wrong.
STU: Oh, wow, yeah.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. I was giving her the benefit of the doubt until, oh, no, wait, no, hang on, no. Not that Curt. I meant another one.
PAT: I meant Schilling from the Schilling the sauce, you know, the
GLENN: The other guy, fat guy.
PAT: You know.
GLENN: You look him up. He's in the phone book under Yankee fan.
PAT: I'm pretty sure. This is Schilling of the Bronx. The Schillings.
GLENN: And I love the fact that they have come out, "The Boston Globe" said that brown is not going to be attending any Mensa meetings at night.
STU: Of course.
GLENN: Well, of course not. They hold them during the day. Are they implying that she will?
STU: Of course. She's smart and he's dumb. D and R. I got it. That's how it works every single election.
GLENN: I can't I mean, how these people just don't see that the game is over. They just don't see that Americans are onto this. Oh, he's dumb? Oh. If you hadn't called half the population dumb, tea partygoers, you are calling half the population dumb. When you do that, they go, well, wait a minute here, I'm not dumb. And then they start to notice everybody else that's dumb and they realize, oh, only the people that agree with the elites are called smart. Oh! The game is over, gang.
