Glenn Beck: Obama's speech


GLENN:  Now, last night he started to -- he's brilliant.  He started to give the speech that he needed to be giving the whole time.  He was giving the speech of, you know, little Sally Muckenfutch without a face, except listen to the way this guy -- he won't wear a flag lapel pin but listen to the way this man wrapped himself in the flag last night.  Listen to this.

SENATOR OBAMA:  I know the promise of America because I've lived it.  Michelle has lived it.  You have lived it.  It is the line of opportunity that led my father across an ocean.

GLENN:  Okay, stop for a second.  We know it's interesting.  He said, I have lived it; Michelle has lived it.  Remember yesterday Michelle was talking about -- and I want to make sure I get this exactly right here -- the veil of impossibility that is hanging over all of our heads, end quote.  That's the way Michelle Obama expressed it the night before last in a speech in North Carolina.  There, is that your view of America?  Here's somebody who says, "I've lived it; my wife has lived it."  His wife?  I'm sorry.  Fear creates this veil of impossibility that is hanging over our heads.  She also talked about how she struggled anyhow she shouldn't have been at Princeton and she shouldn't have been at Harvard but she did it.  But it wasn't done in a way where she was making the point, you can do it, too.  She was giving the point, they keep moving the bar on us.  You work, you keep doing it but then they move the bar.  I know, as an alcoholic that was always my problem.  And so you can never reach the bar.  So Barack, I don't buy it.  I don't -- I mean, it's very, very good.  And the general person in America will buy this but boy, oh, boy, you've got to wake people up because this guy is good.  All right, more from his speech.

SENATOR OBAMA:  It's the founding ideals that the flag draped over my father's coffin stand for.

GLENN:  Stop.  First of all, I can't take the guy's accent.  I can't take his accent.  I mean, I don't think I could take George Bush's accent, but I can't take four years or eight years of, "My father's -- with the flag draped coffin, was on my father's."  I can't take it.  I can't take it.  I don't even know what it is.  Is it southern?  Have you noticed that when he goes up north, it kind of sounds northeastern and then when he goes down south, it's more southern?  He's like Madonna.  You know how Madonna comes back and she's like, "I'm just..." you're from New York!  Has anybody else noticed that?

STU:  I have noticed that I mean, it was a big criticism of Hillary that she was changing her accent to the southern drawl.

GLENN:  Oh, I hate these people.  Stop with the accent.

STU:  Politicians in general, they are all irritating.  Has anyone ever changed a vote because of the way a voice sounds?

GLENN:  Somebody's accent, we're like, oh, he sounds like me.

STU:  Right.  Like, we killed Hillary Clinton for her terrible speaking voice in that shrieking sort of --

GLENN:  You know, maybe we need to add that to our stage show.  Maybe I should do part of it.  When I'm in the South, I'll do part of it like, hey, Jethro, I'm just like you.

STU:  This is my impression of what I think southern people sounds like.

GLENN:  Yeah.  Well, I was just eating some grits last night and I was thinking, shoot, I wish I had a beer.  Now let's talk energy policy.

STU:  But that was the criticism of Hillary Clinton that she was doing that, and I don't see how that -- like her voice is terrible, it irritates me to no end but I wouldn't not vote for her because of it.  I would not vote for her because of her crappy policies.

GLENN:  Or not.  The flag-draped coffin over his -- oh, I can't -- all right.  So anyway, he won't wear a flag lapel pin but he will talk about the flag draped coffin of his father.

SENATOR OBAMA:  It is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  It's the simple truth I learned all those years ago when I worked in the shadow of all those shuttered steel mills on the south side of Chicago.

GLENN:  Stop.  Dan, do me a favor.  Look in the music.  Get the music blog open.  Can you just look under Billy Joel.  Can you find Allen for me, please.  And then I think we should just run Allentown instead of the rest of the speech because you know he's going to start talking about, oh, jeez.  And then there's poor little Sally Muckenfutch.  Go ahead, hit Allentown, please.

(Music playing).

GLENN:  Ladies and gentlemen, the next President of the United States, Mr. Barack Obama!

SENATOR OBAMA:  But in this country justice can be won against the greatest odds.  Hope can find its way back from the darkest of corners.  And when we are told that we cannot bring about the change that we seek, we answer with one voice.  Yes, we can.  So North Carolina and America, don't ever forget that this election is not about me or any candidate.  Don't ever forget that this campaign is about you.

GLENN:  Oh.

SENATOR OBAMA:  It's about your hopes.  It's about your dreams.  It's about your struggles.  It's about your aspirations.  It's about securing your portion of the American dream.  Don't ever forget that we have a choice in this country, that we can choose not to be divided, that we can choose not to be afraid, that we can still choose this moment to finally come together and solve the problems we've talked about all those other years and all those other elections.  This time can be different than all the rest.  This time we can face down those who say our road is too long, that our climb is too steep, that we can no longer keep the change that we seek.  This is our time to answer the call that so many generations of Americans have answered before by insisting that by hard work and by sacrifice, the American dream will endure.  Thank you.  Thank you, North Carolina.

GLENN:  He's fantastic.

SENATOR OBAMA:  May God bless you and the United States of America.  Thank you.

GLENN:  All we need is a little sacrifice.  All we need is a little sacrifice and we can get out of Allentown.  They're taking the coal from the ground -- not anymore.  The unions, yeah, they got a stranglehold on us.  Yeah.  Unions didn't leave.  They are out killing another business now.  That's what they're doing.

STU:  Isn't this a remix on the typical Democratic speech?  That's what Obama does well is he's not just bitching about Allentown.  He's saying that there's positive -- he's, of course, explaining it with no detail and how they're going to be here but at least he's saying it is possible.

GLENN:  Of course.  He's really good at using all of the Ronald Reaganisms, but he doesn't believe in any of them.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
