Wow this is kind of a shock.




Glenn Beck thinks President Obama is better for the country than John McCain would have been, he said in an interview with Katie Couric to air at CBSNews.com Tuesday evening.

"I think John McCain would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama," Beck told Couric in the debut episode of her new web show, @katiecouric.

Beck's comment came in response to Couric's question about Hillary Clinton, who Beck said he may have even voted for had she been the Democratic nominee against John McCain.

"I can't believe I'm saying this," Beck said, "I think I would have much preferred [Hillary Clinton] as president and may have voted for her against John McCain."

He described McCain as "this weird progressive like Theodore Roosevelt was."

Actually,it's not shocking at all and he's not giving Lite his seal of approval. He's equating what is good for the Republican party as being good for the country. He thinks Lite is better because he will ultimately be a boon for the Republican party and will benefit them more than McCain ever could.

His view is similar to how I stated McCain would be better for the Democrats and gridlock would be better for the country. His comment is an indictment of Lite not a an endorsement of him.

Exactly, McCain would have just been a continuation of Bush's destroying the republicant brand.

I guess that could be true. Though I find it odd he said McCain was some weird Progressive. So to me that suggest McCain's policies might have been worse than Obama's in his eyes.

What he is also saying is that Hillary would have been the moderate of the two and worthy of supporting as being better for the country and maybe not so much for the Republican party in the short term.

Similar to how Limbaugh ended up on her bandwagon.

Progressive for a CONSERVATIVE NUTJOB. Not progressive in the liberal sense of the word. McCain stood to move the party further Center and that is not where Beck wants to go. In a calculated move he would decide that Hillary would be preferable to McCain.

Ultimately they ended up with Lite which, was my assertion during the campaign, was what they wanted all along.

I tend to agree. McCain would have just continued the country on its old path, which was a Rep party sliding left and a far left Dem part sliding left but still remaining parallel, with government growing and growing all the way. A slow slide to socialism instead of the breakneck pace the Dem brain trust would have us on still takes us to the same place eventually.

This situation hopefully enables a rebirth of sanity in Washington because what is hopefully one term of a loony Carter-like administration is creating enough backlash to wake up the voters and the Rep party simultaneously.

If Congress changes hands and then the White house in 2012, we'd be better off for having gone through the BO mess, although he'd have known very little about it.

This was my 'tin foil' theory why Sarah Palin was born and why the Republicans gambled this election feeling that Lite would move to far left too fast and the result would be a pendulum swing back in their direction in 4 years. I was ceremoniously ridiculed and scoffed at by the Democrats on the board.

From the looks of it, I think they are on track for two years earlier than I predicted and I'm sure even they are somewhat surprised by that. That means two fewer years of finding a candidate to groom ala the way the Dems did Lite.

That may all be true but I still find it interesting when he says "better for country." Not better for the Republican party, or conservatives, or gridlock. Maybe he will elaborate on this later because I would interested in what he meant.

When says better for country I take it that he believes McCain's administration and policies would have been worse. Not that he is endorsing Obama but he was the lesser of 2 evils.

Dirk, Beck believes that CONSERVATISM is better for the country. McCain was not a conservative. No way did he want a 'progressive' Republican taking the helm and moving the party further Center. Reading misc. quotes or seeing soundbites is not going to help you understand what he meant. You have to listen to him or watch his show to understand him. Same with Limbaugh.

I can guarantee you without a doubt that Beck is not on any Lite bandwagon and him saying he's preferable to McCain is like saying a heart attack is preferable to cancer.

Only worse in the sense that when a Republican like McCain, who actually isn't really any different than a democrat, says he stands for conservative values and doesn't act on them, the conservative philosophy takes a beating.

To me the the real damage of Bush's presidency isn't what his policies were (which were bad enough) but the perception by a large bloc of the voting populace that those policies were conservative in nature, which they weren't. That's what drew them in large numbers to Obama, who they thought was change from Bush's failed conservative ideology when in fact Obama is more of the the same on steriods.

Maybe you should take a reading class. I said he wasn't endorsing Obama he was just the lesser of 2 evils.

But I still don't get why a conservative would say a very liberal POTUS is better for the country than a mildly conservative or moderate. As far as Limbaugh goes he quickly jumped on McCain's bandwagon during the general so he obviously doesn't believe Obama is better for the country than McCain.

I think he means exactly what I said, that there will be so decisive a refutation of this administration's political philosophy that we will be better off as a result. After Carter came basically the voters voting 3 terms to Reagan.

Due to Carter's shocking foreign policy failures that we are still paying for today, it's arguable that it was "worth it" in a sense, but it's not even debatable that we were much better off at the end of the following presidency.

Yes, that is it exactly. They were gambling that Lite would end up being a Carter with one exception. Carter was impotent and ineffective. Lite will believe his own marketing and teleprompter and overstep and overplay his hand thereby creating an opportunity for the Republicans they would not have had with McCain.

Denise I understand the political parts of this and I am not looking for any validation. If his point as you and others have suggested that Obama is so bad and crazy that he is brain washing kids and all of this crazy stuff so when it is 2012 a Republican will get elected then I get that.

What if Obama has his way with spending this country into oblivion and gets re-elected for another 4 years ?

Conservative talk radio guy Mark Levin slams Beck today over his comments which echo what I was trying to say. You claim Obama is the devil but then turn around and say he isn't as bad as McCain who you compare to Teddy Roosevelt.

LEVIN: How can you day after day and night after night correctly rail against Obama's radicalism, how he's undermining the Constitution, how he's nationalizing our basic industries, how he has Marxists all around him, and then say in an interview with Katie Couric, I think John McCain would have been worse than Obama? Quote: "How about this? I think John McCain would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama. How's that?" That's not good. McCain is no conservative, in fact in many respects he's a progressive. Which is why I fought him. Day in and day out. Day in and day out behind this microphone. Not only fought him behind this microphone but wrote article after article -- go ahead and Google it -- rejecting his candidacy. But to say that he'd be worse than a president that's a Marxist, who's running around the country -- I'm sorry, the world -- apologizing for our nation, who's slashing our defense budget, who's nationalizing our health care system? To say he would be worse is mindless, mindless, incoherent as a matter of fact. There's our 5-PMer, on Fox ... I don't know who certain people are playing to, I don't know why they are playing to certain people ... I think there's enormous confusion and positioning and pandering. It may be entertaining, but from my perspective, it's not. It's pathetic."

All the fucking time and shaking your fists at the sky.

Every article you see in the news today about what the GOP needs to do to save itself involves kicking you crazy uneducated fucks to the curb and we're all going to be better off for it.

I'm still trying to decided who was the lesser of the 2 evils in Becks mind. He is claiming that Obama will lose in 2012 with less damage to the country than John McCain in 2012.

What if Obama has his way with spending this country into oblivion and gets re-elected for another 4 years ?

I just can't see all the spending when I have strong conservative values. FTR, I know McCain was pretty liberal, reason I said he scared me , but I feared Obama more in the election.

We were screwed either way.

I agree its a crying shame that the best we could put forward was Obama vs. McCain. I have actually felt this way through a few other election cycles as well.

Let's be honest Mccain had no shot and was put forth to be the sacrificial lamb. Everyone wanted change including me, but definitely not this kind of change.

Should I give him kudos or not?

Because I'm willing to bet he cast a vote for McCain/Palin.

I'll say this: Obama's been better for him than McCain could have been.

Oh he definitely voted for McCain mostly because he wanted to pork Palin.

Definitely agree on the last statement. Obama has made him a very rich man.

Obama has made him a very rich man.

Absolutely.

In a way, he's absolutely next.

Limbaugh captured the self-assured condescension the Republican base exhibited during the Reagan years.

During Bush II, Hannity was the base's voice of self-assured infallibile machismo.

During Obama, Beck exemplifies their angst, their exasperation, and their fear.

Heh, a young bitter pup ? If you think what is happening in this country today is the best thing we have to offer, then America has seen it's better days and we are in a free fall.

I don’t necessarily disagree with Glen Beck.
I never understood why Republicans thought it would be a good idea to take on a young, well spoken, black, liberal Democrat with a grouchy, old, white, liberal Democrat.

Short term pain, long term gain. That's why.

thanks for the drama, mr. alinsky.

I think the fact that you and others can't stop talking about Beck actually exemplifies your angst, exasperation and fear.

he's crazy! I don't take anything he says seriously! I can't stop talking about him!

Beck is playing Couric like a 12 pound carp. His ratings will shoot higher post interview.
