The thing is, I don't think Glenn Beck is really nuts. Nor does he actually believe the idiocy he spews. Sure, he may be Conservative, but the man is first and foremost an entertainer. Beck knows his audience, plays to their fears, bigotry and nationalism, and makes a killing from stirring up the proles.

Beck is Limbaugh that can cry on cue and probably isn't addicted to drugs. But I hear he enjoyed raping and killing a girl in 1990, so there is that.

bush had a very progressive foreign policy. well, militantly liberal, anyway. the idea of bringing western-style democracy to the middle east smacks of the old-school victorian liberalism of david livingstone and his missionary brethren. only bush did it by the sword rather than by trade. but it's still a liberal goal.

That's more or less the keystone of neoconservatism foreign policy: the aggressive advancement of liberal ideals (democracy, free trade, capitalism, etc.), by force if necessary. Think "disaffected Trotskyites."

...oh and Bush's "legacy" involves the aforementioned farking over the economy, invading two countries resulting in the deaths of millions, farking up the handling of Katrina, oh and destroying everything our country stands for in response to the biggest terrorist attack we've ever had.

I never heard anything about Glenn Beck raping and murdering a girl in 1990. So I googled it, and sure enough; no where can I find any story where he denies it.

Why do people insist that there must be perfectly pure embodiments of political and social ideologies? The don't exist. Never will. Reality is stubborn that way.

Perfect forms only exist in logical space.

If we focused more on needs instead of labels we'd be alot happier.

If by "western-style democracy" you mean "military occupation to prepare the way for vampire oil companies under the cover of specious lies about WMDs" then I agree.

Bush's oil industry overlords wanted control of the oil supply. They were willing to concede a patina of talk about spreading "democracy" but it was never more than talk. There will never be democracy in places where the oil industry runs the show. Quite the opposite. If there ever is democracy in Iraq, it will be because the oil industry is thrown out. That will be hard to do, with a US taxpayer-funded mercenary army keeping Iraq in a chokehold.

Keep America Safe.

Funny story; I have an aunt and uncle who are GOP supporters regardless of anything negative that happens and they have accounted for GWB by saying "well, he is gone and we are looking for a stronger candidate now"

//when asked how/if Rmoney is stronger they are not able to come up with any supporting points outside of "he is not Obama"

Compassionate Conservatism = Big Spending, Big Government, Big Handouts to Big Corporations

It's not the same thing as conservatism in the philosophical sense, though no mainstream Republican has ever really fulfilled the true definition. I guess you could look at someone like Goldwater, but he never gained any appreciable power.

This Beck guy is nuts. Look at the crazy things he says:

In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey
Butane in my veins so I'm out to cut the junkie
With the plastic eyeballs, spray paint the vegetables
Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
Kill the headlights and put it in neutral
Stock car flamin' with a loser and the cruise control
Baby's in Reno with the vitamin D
Got a couple of couches sleep on the love seat
Someone keeps sayin I'm insane to complain
About a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
Don't believe everything that you breathe
You get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
So shave your face with some mace in the dark
Savin' all your food stamps and burnin' down the trailer park

He also belongs to some weirdo religion like Romney.

Glenn Beck's wife must do a lot of laundry, given his proclivity for pisssing in the wind and shiatting his pants every time he sees an opportunity to try and inject himself back into the limelight.

Also, my Cheerios are soggy. Goddamned progressives.

It could be argued that Bush did share some ideals with the Progressives, they were after all almost militantly Protestant and favored foreign military intervention, and education and certain forms of health care (medicare, etc) were supposedly high on Bush's priorities. But there not being any actual argument in the link for what exactly he's claiming it's kinda hard to analyze it.

//"Progressive" is the name of a specific political movement in the late 1800s (focused on, among other things, Protestant evangelism) and a resulting political party in the early 1900s (Teddy Roosevelt). People treating it like another synonym for the left wing of US politics are a bit dim, as much of it was incorporated into what is now the GOP as into the Democratic party.

Glen Beck raped and murdered a little girl back in 1990?

I'm not saying he did, mind you, I'm just asking the question. A question to which every pedophile-hating, anti-murdering American would like an answer.

Well, this accusation has been around for a long time, but Glenn Beck has never denied it. Now, we know that a girl was raped and murdered in 1990. We know Glenn Beck was alive and in the United States in 1990. The United States is considered the "land of opportunity," so, logically, Glenn Beck had the "opportunity" to rape and murder a young girl in 1990.

Now, follow me here, what do we really know about Glenn Beck?

C ries regularly at inappropriate times, maybe out of guilt.
R epeatedly prone to spontaneous fits of anger.
I ncensed at the idea that anyone wouldn't believe his side of the story.
M ental illness runs in his family, including paranoid schizophrenia.
I ndifferent to the suffering of poor people, including poor pre-teen girls.
N ever shy of talking about using force to accomplish affirmation of his preconceived beliefs.
A sked to leave Fox News under unclear circumstances, perhaps a staffer finding a bloody pair of girl's underwear?
L aughed at a radio rival's wife having a miscarriage, suggesting he finds the deaths of children amusing.

Now, maybe Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990, maybe he didn't. But, the fact that even though he knows the allegations are out there, he has never made a single effort to deny it. Why so silent? We're just asking questions here.

Definitions change, you know, especially in politics. Republicans used to be a political party dedicated to freedom and racial equality, for instance.

Let's look at this logically and think our way through it. Bush's name is spelled B-U-S-H.

Bolshevik
Usurper's
Socialist
Hegemony

He was working with Obama all along. He put it out there for everyone to see.

Now, I'm not saying that Prescott Bush traveled to Africa in the early 20th century and contracted with a voodoo priest to create a demon that would become president and destroy America. What I'm saying is: why isn't the lamestream media asking questions about this? What do they have to hide?
