I thought this was pretty good. I think he's right about everyone in Washington acting like 3rd graders.."He started it!! He did this!!"

Also talks a bit about the reporter who asked Obama is he was a Socialist over the weekend.

At first I was kinda skeptic on wherther or not Obama was a socialist..Until the stem cell research was lifted and put into the stimulas pack. Made me upset.
I recalled bush saying "We will not negotiate with terrorist" Now Obama is like hey let's sit down have lunch, lets talk about this. HA! Yes the man is more of a socialist than I realised?

1. Stem cell research has absolutely nothing to do with Socialism

2. Negotiating with "terrorists" has nothing to do with Socialism


If you guys actually knew what Socialism meant, you would be up in arms because we don't have it. Please pick up a book, or go on wikipedia or something, and DO SOME DAMN RESEARCH. There's a reason most of the developed nations on this planet are Socialist.

Well the Republican in Beck came out on this tape. Talking to the Taliban, what wrong can it do. Aren't you tired of Americans coming home in body bags... What did he say "get it done".. Well if George Bush Sr had "got it done " the first time , would there be troops there now ?

You see this is one of the areas I don't agree with him. I don't think "talks" will do anything. We just need to freaking leave! He was comparing it to him willing to talk to taliban but not Rush Limbaugh, which in that regard, makes sense...not that I like Rush at all..can't stand him.

The taliban didn't just decide to hate us one day, most of the hate the rest of the world has for us has been brought upon ourselves....and it goes far beyond the Bush administration.

This is a great textbook definition of Socialism. Thanks for backing up my post.

"Socialism" is thrown around like the word "Communism" was back in the fifties. All they like to talk about on Fox News is how Obama is Socialist this and Socialist that. What they don't like to talk about is what Socialism actually is, because if they did half of their viewers would switch sides on them.

They also don't like to talk about how our government has been using Socialist policies to benefit the rich exclusively for many years now, while the rest of the country (read: the poor) rots.

My friend , the Taliban are currently in a war with the US , you can see why talking might be 1 avenue, Rush is a nobody on the global scale, hes a shill for a party, hes not gonna be affecting if men come home in body bags, EVERY war ends with TALKS

I know...but talks aren't going to do anything. We should do our "talking" with "walking."

Get out...now...no more dead soldiers...no more civilian deaths.

That's what the Taliban wants...they want us to leave. They don't want to drink tea with us.

Well, where were things before we got there?

Was it ever our business being there in the first place? Why did they start terrorist attacks on our country?

Geeze david... one would figure labelling every individual who aint conservative and for deregulation "socialist" would be childish enough, dont you think?

What is with Glenn and his constant defending of Bush? Is Glenn "adult" enough to admit this socialist tag on every non conservative in itself is outdated and childish? Can Glenn be "adult" enough to quit his winging and liberal bashing and actually get down to the real news? Can Glenn be "adult" enough to cut the silly little childish rumors he does? Tell me when has Glenn ever really implacated Bush in starting this mess in a show? Actually made one show regarding that? It appears that ever since Glenn started his show on fox 99% of it has been liberal bashing, Obama bashing, Bush defending, rush limbaugh defending. I mean seriously david, for a person who proclaims himself for neither party it certainly appears that Glenn is on PR campaign for one of them.

As for this "outrage" for working with the Taliban by the Obama administration since when did Glenn boy and his Fox buddies give a damn about the Taliban or Afghanistan? They were to busy gun parading the Iraq war to care about the real hunt for the monster in Afghanistan? So why does he and fox give a damn all of sudden? Now as for the new administration agreeing to work with moderate elements of the Taleban I say as long as it makes easier for the hunt on Osama bin Laden, the monster who attacked our nation, our fellow american 2001 lest many here have forgotten, then by all means.

Your friends close, your enemies closer. Time for america to show we condone those who do wrong, not condone an entire peoples or group as the result of it. The taliban are tired, many want out even despite the propaganda they show, I say the willingness of the US to work with moderate elements against Osama.... thats the first smart thing in a while for Afghanistan. This administration is actually thinking tactically instead of going head first.

It's really hard to say, considering the West has been collectively screwing that entire region since the 40's. And if you consider that we originally armed and organized the Taliban...

My friend, that's a whole other can of worms you're attempting to open.

To say the least, there are many who doubt they attacked us at all.

I watched this live today and got a good laugh. Beck is an entertainer that offers some valid points. Then, so does Lou Dobbs occasionally.

What matters is realizing how bad our federal gov't has become. Both sides trash our constitution. Enough that many citizens are going to more and bigger rally's to be heard.

I'll give Obama this much; he is listening and commenting on what he hears! Even if he sounds like a school boy. AND Giving the PM of Britain a set of DVD's (they aren't even region2 for britain!!! How embarassing for our country. I almost cried at his audacity! Apologize and tell the PM that the girls picked them out.)

Now, if he could just ignore Pelosi and Reid and special interests. Like, become a leader and risk it all when the time comes.

I'd like to believe that he'll grow a pair someday when someone calls him 'chicken' or something and he'll become a man and a leader that can instill faith in the American people. That's what real leaders do.

Unfortunately, I still believe that it will be O'Biden's prophetic statement that will perpetuate any real change.

And all of you who want to effectively end the USA do to an unfavorable election are acting like what??? fourth graders?

You guys are on the slippery slope here... you are essentially calling for civil war in response to economic hard times.
real patriots for sure!
