Glenn Beck: President Obama Is Still Bashing Bush




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

Here's how President Obama summed up Tuesday's massive political earthquake in Massachusetts:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: People are angry and they're frustrated. Not just because of what's happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Believe it or not: It's still Bush's fault. He actually started out his interview with George Stephanopoulos by blaming the voter anger in Massachusetts on George W. Bush. So, help me with that, Barack: The people are mad at Bush for what he did eight years ago, so they voted for a Republican?

Take that, George Bush! We'll help out Obama... by voting for a Republican! That'll show him and that evil Karl Rove, too!

That's like getting mad at oil companies because of high gas prices and switching from Exxon to Shell. I hate these big oil people, so I'm going to switch to Chevron!

Stop insulting our intelligence.

But, he wasn't finished. There was more misdirection and phantom reasoning: Not only are they mad at Bush, but he was just so busy working so hard on the business they elected him to take care of that, well listen:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: We were so busy just getting stuff done and dealing with the immediate crises that were in front of us, that I think we lost some of that sense of, of, you know, speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are...

I think that, you know, what they've ended up seeing is this feeling of remoteness and detachment.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

He lost touch, all right — with reality. There were 158 Obama interviews and 411 speeches, comments or statements during his first year. How much "touch" does he think we need from him? If only we could've just seen him without his shirt on. Wait, we did. Maybe just an occasional photo of him or his wife, somewhere would've helped.

Because, gosh, we just didn't see him enough. He was everywhere. The only place he didn't show up was in my bedroom with my wife. At least, I don't think... no, that was John Edwards. At least I think it was — so far, he's denying it.

What Obama either doesn't understand — or he just doesn't care — is that what we actually need is — I don't know — maybe a president who is not a radical revolutionary; a president who is not trying to fundamentally transform our country.

The election of Scott Brown should give him some clue of that. Every poll taken lately, should help clue him in to that.

When health care has the support of just 38 percent of the American people and yet you are still trying to ram it down our throats, that's not what we want, that is a radical agenda.

When the polls show America is a center-right leaning nation — 76 percent of Americans identify themselves as either conservative or moderate — but you continue to seize control of businesses, threaten to control wages of private business executives, tax, spend and redistribute wealth with a daily barrage of Karl Marx-inspired class warfare, well then you haven't just lost direct touch with the American people, you were never in touch, in the first place.

Even Bill Clinton understood the message from the American people in 1995, better than Barack Obama:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: We heard America shouting. And now all of us — Republicans and Democrats alike — must say: We hear you.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Did you catch that? Bill Clinton said we heard you. This president says, you didn't hear me:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: I think we lost some of that sense of, of, you know, speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are...

I think that, you know, what they've ended up seeing is this feeling of remoteness and detachment

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The arrogance of this administration is astounding. To paraphrase scripture: In their arrogance, they built a tower to reach the sky. The arrogance of this generation of progressives, will be their undoing.

Maybe it's just me and you and tens of millions of others just like us, but I don't get it.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
