Are US citizens embarrassed at being represented on youtube by a person named Glenn Beck ?
. . .no more than by a person named Barack Obama.
Glenn Beck represents only himself. Possibly some beings in an alternate
reality. But not Americans!
Jandee, Can you give some very specific comments of Glenn Beck that you feel an American should be ashamed of? Be specific and in context.
I know I am now going to get screamed at !!
I was watching a video on youtube last night which featured an interview between the interviewee Glenn Beck and the guest who was the representative of the Communist Party of the United States Sam Webb. The Man Beck was so unprofessional and it was apparent that all he wanted to do was sneer and insult the guest,who was well able to take the sad attitude of Beck. But my gripe is that I was interested in listening to the Americans viewpoint on today's issues in your country but unfortunately nothing was allowed to be said,just skits from Beck, about the rest of the World.
thank you for asking a relevant question,
I don't "scream", but do enjoy heated debate...
What was the name and date of the interview. I don't want to comment out of ignorance, but would rather see the interview first. Thank you.
The people of the U.S. should be embarrassed by,.....a whole list of people. How do you choose?
I am embarrassed to be represented by the buffoon in the White House.
Glenn Beck does not represent US citizens, don't know how you make that leap. He has his opinions and some people believe or agree with him and some don't.
But I am terribly embarrassed by Barack Hussein Obama.
So I don't like the incompetent SOB so I am a racists huh?
Typical. Must be his race because his policies can't possibly be it right? Always the last refuge of liberals with no argument. Play the race card.
You play the race card when you refer to him as Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
There's only one reason to use his middle name, and you know it.
It's a not very subtle appeal to other Islamaphobes.
That is racist.
Is that or is that not his full legal name? LOL
PS- Islam is a religion, not a race. Don't know if you heard.
How can using his middle name be a form of racism? Didn't the Chief justice use it while swearing him in, is he racist too?
Zealous Obama supporters used his middle name when indoctrinating kids into the fold. Are they racist in spite of their support?
Must be racist, as you know from above, there is ONLY ONE REASON to use his middle name.
People who claim racism are technically racists
IWhat is that word racismception?
Taking exception to racism?
Or the inception of racism?
Hi there, Kev. Gallup tells us the president’s weekly job disapproval rating stands at 50% this week not far afield from the vote spread in the 2012 election when the president won 51.1% of the popular vote. I think it is safe to conclude that those who opposed his election are still grumbling 6 months later. However, your extreme brand of disdain for the current sitting President is unique.
Beyond our boarders, President Obama’s leadership approval ratings worldwide are significantly higher than the last two years of the Bush administration. In Europe, his leadership is rated more than twice as high as the median approval ratings seen during Presiden Bush's last two years in office.
His leadership and his administration are favored by many both here and abroad but clearly, not by you. I guess this proves you can not please all of the people all of the time.
http://www.gallup.com/poll/146555/Leade … dwide.aspx
Unique in my disdain? Hardly. Here's one form Rasmussen that says he is at 53% disapproval this week.
http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-ap … lup-2013-5
Leadership you say? Obama couldn't lead you outdoors.
If the people in Europe approve of his 'leadership' (and I use the term loosely) it's because they are not being 'lead' by him. I'd say if their idea of leadership is what most of them have now along with the EU parliament they have a very different idea of what the word means.
You're not by yourself in your opinion of President Obama's performance. Mitt Romney wasn't that popular but he only lost to the POTUS by 333,000 votes in 4 states. I wouldn't call that an amazing victory or an overwhelming show of confidence in Obama's performance. It was a victory but not much more than that.
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government … Presidency
I must agree with you, EA. When you say 333,000 votes in 4 states, it sounds so much better than saying former Gov. Romney had 5 million fewer votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Because nationwide vote totals don't matter at all... so why would you compare them?
Very true. Only the swing states matter. Why do the rest of us even bother voting?
By that standard, Romney lost all of the swing states but North Carolina.
Close? Or not close?
How about an Electoral College victory of 332 to 206?
That's pretty decisive.
At least, decisive enough to warrant words like "stinging" "embarassingly" "blasts Republicans" "grapple," etc.
The more precise measure will always be, well, more precise.
If you care about precision, then the more precise measure is always better.
If each swing state were lost by 2 votes only, then it wouldn't be accurate to call it a decisive victory. If you go by the EC total, then you don't get all the information.
Quantitative -- State by state results
Qualitative -- Still throwing darts at their candidate.
(this quote is all over the web today)
Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, doesn’t think that the Republican party really needs to rebrand – it just needs to pick better candidates. “We are winning when we have good candidates,” he told D Magazine. “We lose when we have bad candidates.”
He continued that Mitt Romney in particular was one of those bad candidates. “Mitt Romney appeared like a kid who showed up for his science project and the teacher said, ‘Explain it,’ and Mitt couldn’t do it,” Sessions said. “His ‘dad,’ Paul Ryan, explained it to him, but Mitt didn’t get it. … That’s why we lost the last election
It was a clear win. It wasn't a mandate.
Also, he got more votes than Bush did in either election, more votes than Clinton received as well. Only Reagan won with a higher percentage of the popular vote in the last 30 years.
Yeah, and many liberals drove around with bumper stickers that read "not my president." That's not a mandate; it wasn't a mandate for Bush, and it's not a mandate for Obama. If you want to see what a mandate looks like, look at the 1980 or 1984 elections.
Bush didn't earn a mandate because he didn't win a majority of the votes the first time and finished with barely over 50 percent the second time.
Ironically, according to the Siena College Research Institute, Bush ranked highest in the "luck" category.

Many people voted for what they considered the lesser of the two evils. I heard that all over the place, and I still hear people talk about it that way. It wasn't that Obama was that popular; it was the Romney was that unpopular. A win like that isn't a mandate unless you win by a much larger margin. He didn't exactly crush the guy who admittedly put his own foot in his mouth and put down almost half the population. If you're the incumbent, and you can't beat a Mormon candidate who literally committed political suicide and didn't have universal support from his own party by a larger margin, you don't have a mandate. That SHOULD be obvious.
I don't believe he even came close to Reagan's margin of victory in 1984 or Bush's in 1988.
Also had a larger turnout, so what? Still Reagan had a larger margin of victory in what actually elects our presidents.
So? The 1988 election and the 2008 and 2012 elections still had similar percentage of votes for the winner.
So? "He won by the largest margin in 30 years"
No he didn't win by the largest margin of victory in 30 years because the election is not based on the popular vote! Bush won 426 electoral votes in 1988, Reagan in 1984 won 525.
It is not a mandate no matter who wins by how much...We have an election for President and the winner is the winner. Congress is the same. What matters is what they move towards after the election. In this case, with both, we are moving further still from the Constitution. Both parties are to blame, just one moves faster than the other.
Hi again, Kev. Golly you are splitting hairs. Rasmussen’s 53% is still not far afield from the vote spread in the 2012 election when the president won 51.1% of the popular vote.
In addition, I think you miss read my previous post. I did NOT say your disdain was unique. I said “your extreme brand of disdain for the current sitting President is unique.”
Thanks, Kev, for contributing.
Once The View is off the air we can all hold our heads high again.
Ooh, Ooh! I have an idea!
Let's call other people RACIST! That will be, like, so cool!
You are embarrassed by Glen Beck but not so by the liberal media that refuses to ask the tough questions on issues like Benghazi? Beck has never claimed to be a representative of the USA in any way...he is a talk show host who occasionally comes up with some very nice tidbits of information for which many in high places love to assign him labels as a nut, etc...much like they did with Joe McCarthy in the 50's. If they cannot beat him on facts, they will insult his intelligence, deny his credibility, defame his character, and attempt to have him branded a "nut case" in general so that any information put forth falls on deaf ears. We once had a media in this country capable of coming up with same information but they sold out lock, stock, and soul to the liberal left and now only represent a flimsy arm of the propagandist state in this country. You can listen to Beck or ignore him...I could care less and so could he but when you take a "Dixie Chicks" attitude and speak out on something that you may not really know anything about, it just might come full circle. ~WB
Frequently, anyone expressing concern over Obama's historically poor performance in most areas, is quickly labeled racist. Let's test the theory. How many folks are embarrassed by Obama, but would totally get behind a Ben Carson / Condoleezza Rice or Condoleezza Rice / Ben Carson ticket?
Recent poll by New York Times/CBS (favorable numbers for Obama)
Economy – 41
Budget Defecit – 33
Gun Policy – 41
How’s that mandate looking now? He can’t even get half of the people to believe he has done a good job in these three areas. That doesn’t lend much credibility to your “mandate” debate.
The numbers are appalling for republicans too. This is what I said in an earlier post. Many people voted for the lesser of two evils. Romney was exceedingly unpopular, and many voted for Obama because of who his competition was. This was no mandate. It was a victory, but it wasn’t a mandate.

Traditionally, presidents in their second terms see a drop in their approval rating. If anything, its to be expected.
I think also a lot of Ron Paul/Libertarian types refused to vote as a protest and that probably cost Romney more than it cost Obama.
Um they would simply vote for the Libertarian party.

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/201 … s_sub.htmlBeck once called Obama a racist and I disagreed. Beck later apologized for his remarks but now I wonder was he right? If Obama isn't a racist he sure likes to use race to his political advantage!
