The state of the Presidential field in bite sized chunks

Let's be honest about it, Mitt Romney is the best candidate in the field.  He might be one of the worst on policy.  But when measured by what got Obama elected in 2008, Romney is 30 times better than everyone else.  That doesn't mean that you should vote for him on those grounds, but it's true.  If you're voting purely on someone who can win, it's Romney.  (That doesn't mean you'll be happy once he's in office.)

Herman Cain is a really good speaker, but he isn't holding up particularly well to the heat in my opinion.  He's also way too slogan-ey for me and can't seem to explain himself when he really needs to.  And if he actually is a dirtbag, obviously I don't want him as President, though I haven't seen any evidence of that yet.

When you really think of it, Rick Perry probably has the best record of success of any of the candidates.  He's the best candidate on paper.  His debates have been awful, but he strikes me as the only other guy with any shot of actually beating Obama outside of Romney, assuming the general climate didn't shift too much.  It's a steep climb from where his poll numbers have been lately though.

Newt Gingrich...yes, he looks pretty decent in debates lately.  Do we forget about him sitting on the couch with Nancy Pelosi? (Please, watch this again.)  Plus, a gruff, old, white dude isn't beating Obama.

Ron Paul can't win the republican nomination because of his foreign policy.  I think he's going to walk in to the Libertarian Convention and get their nomination in a cakewalk at the last minute.  Then we're all screwed.  Yes, I've heard his half-hearted denials.

Michelle Bachmann has had a couple of rough moments in the campaign, but she deserves better than her current status.  The media has succeeded in villifying her, and she hasn't helped herself at times.

 

 

Rick Santorum should be a top tier candidate in this field.  You're really telling me he's not better than Newt Gingrich? Seriously? He hasn't made any major errors, knows policy and process, and is solidly a conservative candidate.  He deserves better.

 

Barack Obama is the current President of the United States. He sucks at this job and should try another.  This just isn't the career for him.

 

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
