As if Glenn Beck needs my help

Why CBS and/or Katie Couric found a need to interview Glenn Beck is something I cannot answer. There has been little real in depth such research into the stories of the day lately, that I would have imagined any CBS story about Beck would have included the respective writers from Time and Newsweek along with maybe an editor or two from those "magazines" and Keith Olberman.

What a refreshing sign it is to see CBS go to the source.

Alas, the sound bite that has attracted attention is Glenn simply stating his opinion about how the country would be today if the electorate had chosen Sen. McCain over Sen. Obama.

Based on what has transpired in The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate, before and after the November election, he supposes that the country would have been worse off.

We can get all upset about this attack on a RINO, but, is he right ? Is Mr. Beck's opinion based on a good grasp of fact ?

I absolutely believe he is correct, no matter how much I do not want to believe such a thing !

When Hot Air posted this Glenn Beck: McCain would have been worse for America than Obama their readers showed why they are their readers. Especially jollybird, who commented in very plain language:
Never like voting for the lesser of two evils. But if McCain won, we wouldn’t have the tea parties or the march on DC. Obama is over reaching, it’s waking people up. So i get Glen’s point. Glen also said the conservative movement might have been hindered for many years or ruined if McCain won.

An even better way to see that things would have been worse is given at SI VIS PACEM
...what Glenn Beck was driving towards, if ineloquently. It's the having the crazy old guy in the WH that would have been a huge intractible problem. Perhaps better, Beck ought to have framed his argument by stating that having Obama on the stove-control for the pot of us frogs has it's ideological advantage: Obama and his cluster have turned-up the temperature of the pot so quickly, so high that we frogs are starting to take action. We're not obediently croaking in accordance with Progressive theory.

So, America, and especially you Mr. Levin, I ask one simple thing in response to your being upset at Mr. Beck's statement of opinion:
Are you feeling froggy ?

Oh, yeah, now I get it

The biggest move to increase the size of government in the history of the Republic; the largest expansion of Federal intervention into the economy and the private lives of individual citizens; the most talked about, blogged about and without doubt the reason for the greatest exposure and effort to be in the fore making speeches by the Executive branch -EVER, and all that are in support of it are just keeping quiet because they all no that there is no need to fear it not happening just as the 1000+ page bill HR3200 spells it out

WHEW, I was worried, but, now I can just rest assured that all of the noise is so much manufactured anti-American raaaaacist hate-filled fear-mongering by only just a handful of ne'er do wells who are misguided and out of touch with the mainstream.

Thanks 0-Man, once again you have reassured me that you are beyond unprepared to lead the Greatest Nation God has yet allowed to be run by man.

It is time to stop talking of "Death Panels"

Any reasonable, thinking and sober person knows fully well that in a modern western nation there will never be decisions or guidelines, such as any supposedly being made by "Death Panels".

Continuing to claim such a thing is absurd.

No such developed country would ever sanction a decision or guideline that will allow the death of any living, breathing, post-natal human being !

Oh, wait, scratch that
I mean that would never happen here......

Raaaaacist, fear-monger !

Because this is in our future ?

Today the US State Department issued an amazingly dumb, short-sighted and very telling document.
Termination of Assistance and Other Measures Affecting the De Facto Regime in Honduras

It starts out with all we need to know, to understand this administration:
The Department of State announces the termination of a broad range of assistance to the government of Honduras as a result of the coup d’etat that took place on June 28. The Secretary already had suspended assistance shortly after the coup.

They call it not only a coup, but, a coup d'etat!

How completely ignorant !

All one needs to do is read the Honduran Constitution, or read the news from Honduras when these events unfolded, or read William Jacobson and his links regarding the legitimate actions undertaken by Honduras to preserve their Constitution.

AH, but, that is not what this administration is about ! To this administration any and all legal Constitutional restraints that can be overthrown will be food and fodder for their future actions.
