I had to turn Beck off this morning. He was being ridiculous. And Michael Medved was doing nothing more than a Romn-e-thon. Ann Coulter was on there too singing the praises of Mitt.

I don’t have GBTV but I see that the Blaze is pretty responsive. I sent them this story about the Michigan Teachers using Alinsky tactics first thing this morning and I see they have the story up now.

I have never turned off Beck. I did it four times this week and I pay extra to watch him. He literally shouted down a little old lady today who was trying to reason with him about Newt. I’m ticked with him and Ann Coulter and the entire lineup of Fox news.

“I have never turned off Beck. I did it four times this week and I pay extra to watch him. He literally shouted down a little old lady today who was trying to reason with him about Newt. I’m ticked with him and Ann Coulter and the entire lineup of Fox news.’

I used to lurk here and enjoy Beck’s Fox show thread, and when he left Fox I subscribed to GBTV. But no more-—I cancelled GBTV a while back. His ego has grown to alarming proportions. He’s gotten way too touchy feely with the “Restoring Love” crap (Another rally? Seriously?). And I got tired of the next big super-secret announcement that’s going to change the world. Glenn’s turned into a bitchy drama queen who takes it personally when someone disagrees with him.

Also, I was engaged in a brief e-mail exchange with Pat Gray which proved to me that Beck and company apply a completely double standard to Newt and Romney.

I even tried to call his radio show today..busy line the entire three hours when I put him on redial..what a farce. No one ever answered.

Yep...I’m a GBTV subscriber too and I’m just wondering if it’s time to give it a rest. I’m getting sick of his anti-Newt stance. He needs to chill. Last thing we need are a bunch of folks staying home on election day because Glenn said Newt and Zero were the same. They are not the same.
GBTV is a great resource and Glenn can be amazing., but the constant Newt attacks are really going to hurt him with his conservative base.

Glenn? tip? Focus on the BAD guys or Zero will win another term.
Of all the guys who need to quit harping about past mistakes of OTHERS, it should definitely be Glenn - since he was a sewer rat in a former life. ;)

I’m so po’ed. After people like Ann C and Beck have been getting rich off of our collective research and ideas they don’t have time to listen to us about why we want Newt. Again..more than stinks to the high heavens.

Great show tonight on Obama's lies and Soros's predictions for the future.

Beck has recently pissed off a lot of folks. The truth ain't always easy to listen to, especially when it hits close to home (i.e. Newt Gingrich).

He's not always right, but he's more right than most. I hope he holds his course because he is approaching the target as the flack he's receiving indicates!

Beck's show on the Pentagon report and financial terrorism was interesting. I don't remember his name, but suggested financial diversification, Canada CD as one option right now to lower risk.

BS of A! Beck is closing off debate..he is closed off to ideas and has cut off from what the people of the US want. The people of the US are smarter than Beck..smarter than the 500+ people who run the hill and smarter than any pundit or lobbyist in the DC beltway.

G-d is the collective, the spirit, and the people of the US collectively are the spirit and they want Newt....get a clue.

Interesting, media matters put out a rebuttal to his report on 2008 financial terrorism, Pentagon report. Must have hit a nerve

I agree——and yep, Ann is another one who’s gone off the rails. Her performance last night on O’reilly’s show was epic, but not in a good way.

During what hour of the show did Glenn shout down the little old lady? I cancelled on January 1, so I still have the service through the end of the month....I’d like to see it.

Radio show today..really sweet lady who was trying to support Newt without being pushy. She had to hang up on them..they were ganging up on her and screaming at her...

[ He’s got a big number on his back. It ain’t number one. ]

Is it a serioes on concentric zeroes with them being coloured alternating red and white?

I pray Beck has hired some really good security for him and his family.

(I haven;t seen the show yet, I wish they had an android streaming phone app, i would be able to watch from work if they did)

Beck has done some good things, but the reason he’s taking flak now is because he’s strayed so far from the truth. Pat Gray says that Romney’s positions were “in the past” and he has “been redeemed.” But apparently he and Beck don’t believe the same of Newt. Besides, if they truly believe that about Romney, they’re cracked.

On the radio the other day, Glenn referred to his audience as his “followers.” Big red flag there.....I think Glenn’s ego has become a behemoth.

Oh, my gosh! That’s just terrible. And I bet they mocked her and laughed at her for hanging up. See, I’m tired of that garbage.

Medved and Hewitt are nothing more than ambien substitutes....

They put me to sleep like Mittens does....

Mitt reminds me too much of a used car salesman, he is such a “finger in the air” conservative.

Ok, you made your point. But the people of FR are smarter. And I know that Beck gets precious and profitable info from here...don't lie to me. We know better.

I wouldn't exactly call it a behemoth. He is like anyone else in that he sometimes puts too much confidence in his current opinion at the time.

He has said things that put me on offense at times but you just wait and you will see that he will be right more times than not, even about the things that may make us uncomfortable.

Oh stop! He didn't even answer the phone when I called today. How much truth is there when it's only his staff? You all need to get out more and get some fresh American air.

That's maybe where you made a mistake. You see, if you had only bought a T-shirt with a cute and nifty cliche and logo
only $53.27 (NOT including Shipping and Handling) you could have been one of the few who really knows ... know what I mean ?

I miss the long gone when Glenn Beck actually used to be entertaining and funny.

"That sucks..." Yea, I'll bet..for about anyone who ever calls to any radio program. What a farce. I am so disappointed that there is no one who is really taking calls at Glenn's radio program.

Glenn..you need to answer why you do not take questions.....

Honestly, I’m not looking to him, so I don’t need for him to be right. His behavior lately has been atrocious, and if he is going to get weepy and talk about God and tell people how they should live their lives, he should look to himself first. The way he and his gang treated that woman today was inexcusable.

Ok. No response ..again from the Beck team.

If Art Laffer is out of here and for Newt..I'm gone too. Bye-bye Glenn.

Thanks for broadcasting the info that we already knew on FR. Good luck to you and your big head.

Beck pulled this same crap last presidential election.....being coy and dismissive until a few weeks before the election, and then half heartedly supporting Palin and that other guy....

this is NOT what America needs....

I much prefer the pragmatism of Rush to any cute and coy little things that Beck says....throw in Savage too....so called "conservatives" who thrive best when they have a bamey boy to take on....

I really wonder if some of these pundits WANT bamey boy to win just so they themselves can get another 4 year power trip....
