I also listen to Glenn every day and I plan to vote Ron Paul in the general election. I've come to know that Glenn is ideally libertarian,
essentially republican, and officially independent. Given the fact that he is/was an addict, he has become hesitant. My father is like that.
Secretly spends his life in fear of making the wrong decision. Out of this kind of thought comes paranoia, hence Beck's focus on our security and
foreign policy. He truly understands what it's like to suffer and ruin your life, and he won't ever forget how it can happen without your even
I thought Glenn seemed tense during the entire interview. One of the things i like about him is that he respects his guests regardless of his

Overall, i think he did just that. He gave Ron good opportunity to explain his positions throughout the show. Whether viewers can identify with

That can burn you sometimes too!
The worst part was toward the end when Glenn brought up threats on his life by people who support Ron Paul. This gave me a sick feeling because it
made me feel like Ron was being put in a very tricky position where he is meant to either defend or denounce these people when really, he shouldn't
have to do either.
I also thought it was strange that Glenn took time to read quotes that never belonged to Ron Paul regarding the 9/11 conspiracy. He doesn't believe
in the 9/11 conspiracy and never has. He doesn't believe our government planned this, he called it preposterous. I think it was a bold attempt to
tie some wingnut idea to Ron Paul. I hope it didn't work.
Keep an eye out, i hear he's going to be on Meet the Press soon. His days of no-media coverage may be nearing their end.
