"I believe that Barack Obama is God's punishment on us today," Rep. Leo Berman of Texas' 6th district told the audience at a Glenn Beck appearance in Tyler, Texas. Berman added, "But in 2012, we are going to make Obama a one-term president."
Oh he's a Glenn Beck fan. No wonder he's such a moron. What century does he want to take America back to anyway?
From the same article we learn that the governor of Texas is also a moron.
Proud of being an idiot? really? I'm beginning to think that Texas is God's punishment.Perry "described Beck as a national leader of a powerful group sending a message to the current administration and Congress about Washington, DC, how to control spending and Americans taking their country back," the Morning Telegraph reported.
"I consider myself proud to be in that army," Perry said.
Let's take a look at Beck's insanity:
During his Monday radio show, Beck acknowledged something a bit unusual for him: the fact that President Obama has continued many of President Bush's policies.
That's very true. How shocking that Beck acknowledges it! Oh wait....
GW Bush was a progressive? hahahahahha Obama is a progressive? hahahahahha (well he's a bit more progressive than bush in that he sort of cares for regular people sometimes, but not too much.)"What has [Obama] done that is different?" he asked. "I think he’s done exactly what George Bush was doing, except to the times of a thousand. I mean we’re talking about a progressive. And George Bush was a progressive. It’s the difference between a steam train and the space shuttle."
What's progressive about that? Glenn Beck doesn't know what the hell he's talking about at all. Did he ever attend school? Did he ever read a book? Does he own a dictionary?Beck compared President Obama's Afghanistan surge to the Nazi occupation of France, even as Obama pursued a strategy applauded by former Bush administration members.
Beck seems to have flipped on Bush, including him in that which he's so loathed: a political ideology that holds workers and individual rights above the moneyed interests, that promotes social justice and activism over apathy and acquiescence, that strives for peace, a public safety net and a level economic playing field, otherwise known as American progressivism.
To be clear, during his two terms Bush limited workers' rights, busted unions, rolled back bankruptcy protections, repealed large swaths of financial regulation, helped raise living expenses for the poor and middle class, slashed taxes for the wealthiest Americans, engaged in wars of aggression and then borrowed and spent more than every other U.S. president before him, combined.
Or maybe he is deliberately appealing to the most idiotic political base ever known to man in the whole history of the world in order to make this one of the most fascist countries that ever existed?
I gotta tell you that based on some of my friend's Facebook posts, the likes of Beck has ordinary people completely duped into thinking that only corporatism can "save" our country. The disconnect with reality is just astounding.
