Glenn Beck's American Revival
Glenn Beck's American Revival is a daylong event where you can find information, inspiration, and the preparation to help turn this country around...
GLENN: 888 727 BECK. I've got to go back to Barack Obama now who was just making a comment about how, you know, we're going to have chocolate rivers and oompa loompas making candy bars at night.
PAT: You want to start from the beginning of this or you want to start from let's try from the beginning.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Tonight after nearly 100 years of talk and frustration
PRESIDENT OBAMA: After decades of trying and a year of sustained effort and debate, the United States congress finally declared that America's workers and America's families
GLENN: Workers are
PRESIDENT OBAMA: and America's small businesses deserve the security of knowing that here in this country neither illness, or accident should endanger the dreams they have worked a lifetime to achieve. Tonight
PRESIDENT OBAMA: At a time when the pundits said it was no longer possible.
PAT: That's what they said.
GLENN: I didn't.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: We rose above the weight of our politics. We pushed back on the undue influence of special interests.
PAT: There you go, pushed back on the undue influence of special interests like
PAT: Yeah, yeah.
GLENN: Kickback on SEIU? I didn't see that. I didn't see any of that.
PAT: I didn't, either.
GLENN: How about the Center For American Progress? Did they push back on the Center For American Progress? How about the Apollo Alliance? Did they push back on that one? How about the AFL CIO?
PAT: I don't think so.
GLENN: They didn't push back there?
PAT: Uh uh, but
GLENN: How about the prescription drug companies?
PAT: Not really. They kind of made a deal with the prescription drug companies.
GLENN: How about AARP?
PAT: No. Made a deal with AARP. So
GLENN: I'm just trying to figure out
PAT: Caught a couple of special sweetheart deals for pharmaceuticals who then pumped millions of dollars into an ad campaign to get this thing passed. All the while they demonized them behind their backs.
GLENN: But surely, surely
PAT: Maybe that was the pushback.
GLENN: Surely there was no deals with those evil insurance companies.
PAT: No, actually there were some.
GLENN: What was that?
PAT: Yeah, there were some deals with the insurance companies, too.
GLENN: Oh. Oh, I know what he was talking about. There was pushback on the tea party people.
PAT: Yes, that's who he pushed back.
GLENN: Yes, the special interests of you, the American people. You were finally pushed, finally
PAT: I hate that special interest.
GLENN: And if we could just kick you in the ribs it would be good, too, wouldn't it? I can't wait for those people like us to just be kicked in the ribs over and over and over again.
PAT: Or the face. You know, whatever.
GLENN: It's coming. All right. What else did he say?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: We didn't give in to mistrust or to cynicism.
GLENN: Stop, stop, stop.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Or to fear.
GLENN: Stop, stop, some. Wasn't it SEIU that was going out and calling where was the press when they sent the SEIU thugs out to beat up a black tea partygoer while calling him the N word? Where was the press on that one? Where was the press one? You are right. He didn't give in to fear. The good news is we didn't, either. They didn't give in to cynicism. Cynicism, what would cause cynicism? People saying one thing and doing another? The lack of
GLENN: The lack of transparency, what would cause cynicism?
PAT: Oh, he's been clear about this notion of a lack of transparency.
GLENN: This notion?
PAT: He's been clear about that.
GLENN: Is that what that is?
PAT: It's a notion, yeah.
GLENN: There used to be notion salesman, didn't they?
PAT: Not anymore. He's co opted that word.
GLENN: Unmentionables and notions.
PAT: Really? I thought those were lotions, but no?
GLENN: No, I thought they were notions. Wasn't there notion salesmen? I think so. I don't know.
PAT: It's possible.
GLENN: I didn't live in the early 20th century with all of the evil progressives. So I'm not sure, but anyway, go on with his unmentionables.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Instead we proved that we are still a people capable of doing big things, in tackling our biggest challenges.
GLENN: Wait, hold on just a second. Hold on just a second. Was healthcare our biggest challenge? Was it?
PAT: No, I thought jobs were.
GLENN: I thought jobs were, too. I thought jobs were, too. But Nancy Pelosi came out today and said that she thinks this is going to create all kinds of new entrepreneurial ideas.
PAT: The healthcare bill?
GLENN: Uh huh. I think she's kind of right.
GLENN: Yeah, like how do I get my company and my money out of the country before it's all confiscated. I think that's there's some entrepreneurs working on that right now. How can I set up shop in another country because Charlie Rangel, what a surprise, blocked the door and said you can't leave with your money anymore. Hmmm. What an odd coincidence that was.
