Glenn Beck is a man of conviction. He is always prepared to stand behind them, just as soon as he figures out just what his convictions are. Last year, during the Presidential campaign, he was a staunch Romney supporter. He compared him to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. He sang his praises as a “man of God,” someone who could save this nation from itself. These days, not so much.
Monday on his radio program he and his co-hosts commiserated over having sacrificed their values to vote for him “just because he’s better than the other guy.” They made it seem as if they had been dragged into the voting booth forcefully, holding their noses as they voted at gun point.
Glenn now says that Romney would have “really let us down,” saying that he never would have repealed Obamacare “even though he ran on it.”
Of course he doesn’t explain how he could have accomplished this feat since it could not be done by executive fiat and the Congress would not have sent him a repeal bill to be signed.
After all of his support for Romney in the campaign, Beck now says that he voted for him only “because of the decorum that he would have brought back” to the Oval Office.
“He didn’t hate America and he is a decent man,” Beck said.
The implication of course being that Obama does hate America and that he is not a decent man. The code words are obvious.
He and the others go on to discuss why they cast their votes for the “lesser of two evils” in every Presidential election since Reagan, all agreeing that they voted for McCain only because of Sarah Palin! then, they waxed philosophic on the possibility of her winning some new office, preferably the Presidency, but deciding she would be a wonderful addition to the Senate dreaming of all that could be accomplished if she were added to the team with Tail Gunner Ted Cruz and Mike Lee of Utah.
