If that is accurate he might have been off his meds.

I’m a birther, but I can still understand how a conservative candidate advertising that he/she is a birther could EASILY cost that candidate an election that otherwise would have been won.

The FACT is most of America’s voters turn off their ears and their minds whenever ANYTHING they perceive as controversial is presented to them. It’s a well understood self-preservation mechanism.

When information is perceived to be controversial, whether or not it is important, whether or not it is both true AND important, as long as the information is perceived as controversial, the grand majority of voters will shy away from voting for a candidate who endorses the controversial position.

The progressives know this. That is WHY they have ALL been VERY busy characterizing birthers as the radical crazy fringe element. It is also why the progressives have been deliberately trying to characterize ALL tea partiers as birthers and many as 9/11 truthers.

Beck knows this. He is trying to say, enough about the birther controversary. We are now practically in a new Presidential election season. Look to the future. Work on publicizing the traditional patriotic principles that are held dear by genuine conservative candidates.

Was he peddling a book or concert tour while he said it? I listened to him years ago when he started—his show was only on a crappy little station in Maine.

I respect his ability to raise a buck, but whenever he says something like “I’ve got great news, but tune in at 5 to hear it...” really pisses me off.
