[one_third_last]If there is anyone that Glenn Beck harbors an irrational hatred for as great as that which he holds for President Obama, it is Woodrow Wilson. It is a truly bizarre hatred since Wilson died 40 years before Glenn was even born. In a recent morning meeting Glenn ranted that Wilson was a “racist pig,” that he “helped to fuel the KKK,” and that he “hated the Constitution.” Beck went on to say that Leonardo DiCaprio was a “piece of garbage” because he is considering taking on the role of Wilson for an upcoming film. Beck’s psychosis stems from the fact that Wilson is considered by historians to have been among the top five Presidents ever to have served.
This of course was a prelude to bringing up what he really wanted to talk about, the “imminent” impeachment of Obama. Nothing new there, Glenn has been a major cheerleader in the impeachment movement almost before the President finished taking the oath of office in 2009, what is a new wrinkle is the fact that this time around he seems to be less interested in a conviction than he is in just having articles of impeachment brought against him.
He says now, that it is an imperative in order to keep those same “deluded” historians who name Wilson as one of the best Presidents we have ever had from being able to bestow the same “unearned” honor on Obama. He says that bringing articles of impeachment will place a “stain on his record that they cannot remove.” One wonders if the name Bill Clinton means anything to him, he was impeached and that nasty “stain” hasn’t seemed to inhibit him very much since his term ended. Even Richard Nixon lived long enough to see much of the tarnish on his reputation scrubbed away and he surely would have been convicted had he not resigned the Presidency.
Of course Glenn would see the idea of future generations recognizing Obama’s successes against unprecedented obstruction on the part of the “loyal” opposition as a frightening specter, after all if he is seen as a great President in the future his detractors would be seen in a less than favorable light and Glenn needs all the help he can get to burnish his image.
