GLENN: New poll numbers out. President Obama's hit 44%. His approval rating. I don't know if he knows this. This isn't golf. The lowest score loses. Congress is at 18% and here is a, just a quick peek why. Here is President Obama talking about healthcare, and does any of this feel genuine? And I have to show this on television tonight if we can because you have to see the video. He is dead serious. You'll hear the crowd laugh, but he is absolutely dead serious when he says this. You have to see the video. Can we put this in the newsletter today? We'll ship this out in the newsletter so you can see it at GlennBeck.com. Sign up for the free e mail newsletter and we'll ship it right to your desk today. But here he is, President Obama.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: I got a letter. I got a note... today from one of my staff. They forwarded it to me from a woman in St. Louis who had been part of our campaign, very active, who had passed away from breast cancer. She didn't have insurance. She couldn't afford it. So she had put off having the kind of exams that she needed and she had fought a tough battle for four years. All through the campaign she was fighting it, but finally she succumbed to it. And she insisted she's going to be buried in an Obama T shirt.
GLENN: Dead serious.
GLENN: I mean, I can't, I can't even describe. Pat said to me, you have to see this video. And I just listened to it. Then he said I said, oh, my gosh. And he said, he's dead serious. And I said, wow. He said, you have to see the video. Turned the screen around, and I watched the video. It watches much differently than it sounds.
PAT: It's pretty uncomfortable because
GLENN: Very uncomfortable.
PAT: He didn't mean for people to laugh.
GLENN: He has that stoic you know that face that he makes when he kind of lifts his chin up like, "I am God," that kind of look? He has that kind of look to him when he's saying this, you know, staring right at the TelePrompTer. So he's either completely disconnected, which is a very big possibility, completely disconnected from what is happening in the room with him and he's just so lost in the TelePrompTer, or he thinks that it's dead serious that she wants to be buried in an Obama T shirt. He thinks that's a good thing that he should be saying. I think that's creepy.
I would like to also just ask real quick, how does he get a letter or a card from a woman who's dead?
PAT: Just yesterday, right?
GLENN: Just yesterday. "I just got a card, I just got a letter, or a card or smoke signal from a woman who just died."
PAT: Well, one of his staff got it and then sent it to him. Maybe because she died, he thought, oh, this is a good story, send it on to him. He's got a speech tonight; he can talk about this.
GLENN: May I I just got a letter.
PAT: You have a letter?
GLENN: Or a card.
PAT: Smoke signal?
GLENN: It's a piece of paper. Dear Glenn.
PAT: Who forwarded this?
GLENN: A staff member of mine.
GLENN: This is from somebody who's never worked on the show.
GLENN: But big supporter.
GLENN: For a long time.
PAT: Do you give them health insurance or not?
GLENN: No, I don't give them health insurance.
GLENN: Well, they are not working on the show. They just listen.
PAT: They work for the show?
GLENN: No, not at all. I mean, if you were working for the show, on the show, around the show, and you were working hard and you were a big supporter and I was somebody that had some clout.
GLENN: I would probably get you health insurance instead of rather just, instead of just having you die. You know what I mean?
PAT: Would you?
GLENN: But it would be cool if they were buried in a Glenn Beck T shirt.
GLENN: Wouldn't it be neat? That would be neat.
GLENN: No, I thought it would be cool if he was, you know, she was buried in a T shirt.
GLENN: No, she would dear Glenn, I live in a small community in Southeastern Kentucky. We've seen the firsthand results of these devastating policies. In our community friends are missing.
I don't know what happened. I didn't you know the problem with writing a note or a smoke signal is you don't know what happened to the you can't ask the question like, they're missing; should we go out and look for them?
Families are suffering. Neighbors have been lost. And for what? Glenn, I beg of you to demand answers for the voiceless Americans out there. When will this stop? Why has it gone on this long? Where do we find relief? In our small town alone, 1,457 people have attempted suicide simply because they are sick and tired of hearing Barack Obama read letters or talk about letters that he reads every night. People in our small town can't take it anymore. Please, please no more personal stories hand selected by one of his aides to give at talking points or photo ops. Mr. President, please, for America's sake, tear up those envelopes. Sincerely, Gertrude. She writes counsel here in a shaky hand, she wants to know if we have any kind of Glenn Beck Snuggies or socks that she could be buried in.
PAT: Maybe a koozie or something?
GLENN: Yeah. Do we have koozies? Maybe we could put the entire coffin into a koozie.
PAT: A Glenn Beck koozie would be really cool.
GLENN: That would be really cool.
PAT: Really cool.
GLENN: It would show her support even after death.
GLENN: Stu, why aren't you laughing?
GLENN: Oh, man. And he only has an approval rating of 44%.
PAT: Hard to believe.
GLENN: Okay. This is I've said before now for, what, over a year, when this guy hits 42%, trouble. Look out; this guy's trouble. Not that he's not already trouble. I mean, I think, well, at least for some of his workers who are being buried in his T shirts. This guy wait a minute, hang on. I just thought of something. Should we get, should we get that who's the woman that was hanging out with Arnold the pig? Should we get her on the phone to find out? Because maybe Obama is slaying these people. Have you noticed how many people he has personally come into contact with that are now dead and can't speak for themselves? Have you noticed that?
PAT: Yes, either through letters, smoke signals, actual meetings, what have you.
GLENN: Right. They're just dead. Do you think that it's possible that these are the people that that crazy man on television was talking about when he said he was going to be slaying Americans?
STU: You think that's the new case? Is that what you're
GLENN: No, I just wondered.
STU: You are just wondering out loud.
GLENN: I'm just wondering if that's who she was talking about. He does seem to have an awful lot of letters from people who are dying.
PAT: Well, he's reading letters every night, though, you have to remember. A few of those are going to be dying.
GLENN: Is this a possibility this is like, I didn't even I'm just try to think like Columbo. They always return to the scene of the crime and then they try to help you solve it.
GLENN: See what I mean?
STU: See, I'm thinking it might it could potentially be true, although I think Pat's idea that he does read a lot of letters, maybe he's also getting a lot that are just like, hey, we visited the Grand Canyon last week, it was beautiful, here's pictures of the kids. But he doesn't read those on TV. He only reads the ones that involve people dying and suffering. Possible.
GLENN: You know, can we you know, I'm going to take a break. When we come back, could we write a letter to the president? Let's see if he'll ever use it. Let's see if we can write a letter to the president ourselves, one that we can get him to read. I know the last time I heard him read a letter it was at the state of the union and he said it was from, what, a kid that didn't understand Wall Street?
PAT: Yeah. He was concerned about his credit default swaps, I think.
