Glenn Beck: Howard's hypocrisy




Howard Dean

GLENN:  Welcome to the program.  Glad you're here.  I can't believe anybody actually buys the hypocrisy of these politicians.  I really, I mean, it amazes me.  Howard Dean comes out and he says as swing voters participating in focus groups commissioned by the DNC have brought up John McCain's age unprompted.  This is my favorite.  "We didn't bring it up.  They volunteered it."  He said that they have concerns about, voters have concerns about McCain's age.  One was a health concern.  I'm quoting.  One was a health concern and the other was this really interesting thing they brought up that his views are old-fashioned.  I love that, old-fashioned.  Who even uses the words "Old-fashioned" anymore.  It's like using the term, you know, it's electric.  It's electric.  How does that -- does the door, the back of your SUV just open up by itself?  It's electric.  Come on, it's old-fashioned.  He said they're not going to bring this up, though.  He said, I doubt we'll bring it up in the election.  There's somewhat of a higher ethical bar on what we do.  We don't have Lee Atwaters or Karl Roves on our side.  We don't have to.

Are you kidding me?  Listen to what this guy is saying, "I want you to know we're not going to bring up the fact that a lot of people think he's old-fashioned.  We're not going to bring up the fact that, ooh, he can croak at any second, we won't, because we have higher ethical standards."  You're bringing it up now!  Are you that stupid or are you just growing horns?  I mean, come on.  And they expect us to accept the fact that, oh, well, they do.  They have higher ethical standards.  That's great.  I don't think we have to bring up the age.  I don't think we will.  Really?  Really?  You don't think you'll bring it up?  If you have such high ethical standards, wouldn't you know you're not going to bring it up?  It's either right or wrong, isn't it?  You know, it's not like, yeah, I have pretty high ethical and moral standards.  I doubt I'll ever be with hookers, you know.  You know, I don't think, I don't think I need hookers.  I'm pretty sure I know I don't need hookers.  I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be with hookers.  That's a blanket policy of mine.  I won't be with hookers.  What do you say?

Stu, do you doubt you'll be with hookers?

STU:  Glenn, hookers, being with a hooker is morally reprehensible.  That's why I'm fairly sure at no point that I may not be with a hooker.

GLENN:  I don't even know what you just said.  You should work for the DNC.

STU:  I'm just saying that there's a low expectation of hookerdom in my near future but that could change with circumstances that may prevail.

GLENN:  I don't --

STU:  That's all I'm saying.  It's just obvious, I'm not going to have sex with a hooker unless I have sex with a hooker.  You know what I mean?

GLENN:  I just love this.  Does anybody buy this?  Come on.  I want to hear from Democrats.  I want to hear from a Democrat.  You're out there and you hate everything that spills out of my mouth.  You're at least laughing at this, aren't you?  Come on.  You're at least looking at this and going, oh, my gosh, what a slimy move that is.  It was brought up -- I want you to know it was brought up unaided.  We didn't even, we didn't even say, we didn't even show pictures that say, hey, do you think he looks unhealthy?  We never even did that.  We didn't.  They just brought it up.  They say he's old and he's old-fashioned.  A lot of his ideas, old-fashioned.  Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh, yeah.

Are you bringing it up now, Mr. Dean?  Did anybody in the press corps ask that?  Mr. Dean, aren't you bringing it up now?  So while you're talking about the higher ethical standards that you won't use it, you won't bring it up, aren't you violating those standards on the first day you're talking about those standards?  I mean, is it just me?  I swear to you I'm going insane.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
