Still An Unrepentant Democrat:

When will Beck be Becked for his outrageous accusations about Obama? I can't wait till some of you folks step up and Beck him. You will won't you?

How about you starting Lorie?

Rance:

SAUD,

Don't stop Beck now, he's about to save us from Rockefeller Center.

GarandFan:

If SAUD, et all would take a moment and pull themselves away from the kool aid dispenser, they'd find that Barry has already "Becked" himself several times.

Why do I get the impression that they're not falling all over themselves to defend Jones?

Here's the thing SAUD:... (Below threshold)
JustRuss:

Here's the thing SAUD:

Beck can be "out there" some of the time. But unfortunately he has been correct more often than he has been wrong. His predictions border on prophecy at points and yes he is deeply religious after years as an alcoholic, but that doesn't mean he is wrong.

Many people in this country are usually too lazy to be bothered by political scandals and minutia. If it takes someone like Beck tooting the big horn and sounding crazy to give those people a reason to question the goings on in Washington then we NEED a man like Glenn Beck on the side of the people.

We need "crazy" people on the Left as well to balance him out and keep us looking at the wrong doing on the right too.

Thankfully there are plenty of nutjobs to fill the position on that side of the aisle.

As for the term "Becked" I ... (Below threshold)
JustRuss:

As for the term "Becked" I liken it to the term "Swiftboated" which it is obviously meant to replace in the lexicon.

Any time the Right uses FACTS and THEIR OWN STATEMENTS ON RECORD against them it is considered a personal attack and a smear campaign. John Kerry misrepresented himself to the American People and got "swiftboated" (a.k.a. Outed) by his own fellow soldiers.

I'm sure that, rather than ... (Below threshold)
GarandFan:

I'm sure that, rather than "Beck" someone, SAUD would use ol' Splash Kennedy's tactic and just "Bork" someone. The first takes some time and ability to research what someone has said, the other just takes a pint of scotch and the ability to spew out anything that comes to mind.

"John Kerry misrepresented ... (Below threshold)
jim:

"John Kerry misrepresented himself to the American People and got "swiftboated" (a.k.a. Outed) by his own fellow soldiers."

Here's the thing: your statement is 100% wrong.

Of the six people who were actually on the Swift Boat with him and had the opportunity to witness Kerry's military actions, five backed Kerry to the hilt and one was dead.

Oh, and the main Swiftboater against Kerry also gave him a commendation at the time. So which time was he lying?

Just wanted to set the facts straight.

jim:

"Beck can be "out there" some of the time. But unfortunately he has been correct more often than he has been wrong."

I'm genuinely interested in this. Can you please list the times Beck has been correct?

Still An Unrepentant Democrat:

Beck is out there??????? That's a good apology for him.

GrandFan you continually demonstrate your utter and complete ignorance and stupidity. Only an asshat such as yourself could somehow bring your deranged hatred of Ted Kennedy into a discussion about Back.

I notice no one has yet addressed what I asked. Is anyone ready to condemn (Beck) him for calling Obama a racist who hates white people? Later, of course, he tried to deny he said it.

Lorie? GrandFan? Anyone?

GarandFan:

RE: My 'deranged hatred of Ted Kennedy'.
Struck a chord there, did I? No, not hate. Pity. Takes less time and energy. Why don't you write a lengthy worthless paragraph or two defending what Splash did SAUD. I'm sure you're up to it.

As for Beck's statement, HAVE YOU BOTHERED TO VIEW THE SEGMENT IN IT'S ENTIRETY? Or would you be guilty of 'taking something out of context'?
You know, like you accuse others of so often?

Oh, and still waiting for John (I served in Vietnam) Kerry to release ALL of his military records.

Oh, BTW SAUD, yes I do beli... (Below threshold)
GarandFan:

Oh, BTW SAUD, yes I do believe that Obama is a racist. WHY? 20+ years as a member of the Rev Wright's Church of Racism, that's why. Does Barry "hate" individual white people. Probably not. The Rev Wright also has no problem on his million dollar retirement living in a white 'gated' community. It's all a matter of convenience.

914:

No SAUD, Beck is right and You know it.

"Just wanted to set the facts straight."

So you agree Lurche's military records should be released in full? Unless of course, He plans on boring us with another round of "can I get Me a hunting liscense here?"

James H:

I consider Glenn Beck just as authoritative as any other cable anchor or radio talkshow host.

GarandFan:

Well SAUD didn't bother to come back. Must have been something we said that wasn't covered by DNC talking points. Guess he get's easily confused by facts, especially when everything he's learned is covered by "because Obama says so".

Still An Unrepentant Democrat:

GrandFan

Needless to say i don't spend all my waking hours waiting for your idiotic comments. I actually have a life, which you apparently don't.

Who is Lurche? Some juvenile name you made up for someone you obsessively hate?

I give you credit for having the balls to say what you think about Obama. A stupid thought, but then it is not a surprise.

GarandFan:

Needless to say i don't spend all my waking hours waiting for your idiotic comments.

SAUD, you cut me to the quick! And here I thought all this time you hung on my every word. Guess I'm not in the same league with Barry.

Who is Lurche? I have an idea, but then, I've never used that particular appellation.

But to carry on, I'm still awaiting your dissertation on the racist attack by the rightwing nutroots Nazi's (did I get that right?) on Barry's man, Van Jones. You remember Van, used to work at the White House. Unless Barry has already erased those records as well. I hear he got a lot of practice doing that at Harvard.

SAUD - "I notice no one has yet addressed what I asked. Is anyone ready to condemn (Beck) him for calling Obama a racist who hates white people? Later, of course, he tried to deny he said it."

We ALL notice you provided no link to said quote.

When done so rest assured we will respond with the appropriate rejoinder.

GarandFan:

Re: 18
Yeah?? And?? Obama sits in a pew for 20+ years listening to the 'get whitey' screeds of the Rev Wright. And Barry says he never heard anything racist? Well if that's true, then he must believe everything the Reverend spewed out.
Or are you also saying that Wright ISN'T a foul mouthed RACIST?
