That Beck has cozied up to O’Reilly bothers me much more than him slamming Birthers.
However, I’m sure he has many disagreements with Bill and I don’t think he would be afraid to express them.
Beck has to want O’Reilly’s cozy time-slot. Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer?
Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and especially Mark Levin don’t seem to have much use for Beck. IIRC, Levin accused him outright of plagiarizing from one of Levin’s books. That left only BOR, a committed non-conservative, to cozy up to. BOR wanted to reignite his own popularity with the newest star in that constellation. Thus the dynamic duo. Each is using the other for his own purposes. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
I’ve watched Beck a few times, and his show was entertaining and informative in many respects, but don’t like either his remarks about Sarah Palin or his attacks on those who question or seek proof of Obama’s eligibility under the U.S. Constitution to sit in the most powerful office in our nation and in the world.
In the larger picture, more people think Beck is nuts than even know about ‘birthers.’ He should be a tad more cautious throwing stones.
