Glenn Beck had Rick Perry on his show to start the New Year and it was good interview. They primarily discussed abolishing the EPA, fixing the Fed, and also his excellent clip from yesterday:

I don’t know… I’m still hurtin’ over Glenn. He used to be my main squeeze before his race bating rant… but it’s like love addiction… I still like to see his sweet face on the tube.
Did anyone else have trouble hearing this? I gave up on GBTV because I could barely hear it.
Must be your system… his audio is fine… his download is slow however, but nice and HD.
Glad that to see that Glenn Beck at least is giving Rick Perry a fair shake. I have noticed the Fox black-out on any Perry coverage. I hope the people of Iowa see the bigger picture and coalesce around Perry. Perry has taken on the EPA and Obamacare big-time. Loved the smack-down of the MSM unsourced garbage. Nice to see Conservatives standing up for themselves and their beliefs.
All I can say is where was this Perry in the debates? I loved his answer on the EPA. Texas has cleaner air and water than what the EPA could have done and they did it WITHOUT losing jobs. Perry to EPA: take a hike. There are people who still think Perry has a shot even if he only places third in Iowa. Let us pray.
BTW: Beck is hammering Ron Paul and his racist news letter right now. Ron Paul is done. He’ll have his little ego trip during the primary then it’s back to Area 51 where he belongs.
Heh heh…Holy molly… Area 51 is true then! I knew it.. I just knew it.
What is Area 51? A group of survivalists?
If you really don’t know, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Area_51
The name actually is derived from a map grid area number.
he has new handlers
That would be great!!!
I always wonder about Glenn now…I used to think he did no wrong.
“I always wonder about Glenn now…” -AiA
That’s a good thing, for you and for him. He does much that is right. I guess we all need to have a small twinge of ‘suspect’ in us for everyone like Beck. I, too, like much of what he says, but of course always check it out.
Honestly Nukeman… America owes a debt to Beck.
Glenn Beck really is the Man of the Year for the past couple of years. No other individual in America has given conservatism a shot in the arm like he has. He came up just at the same time as the Tea Party and with the TP tag teamed America’s conservatives to a victory in November 2010. He has singlehandedly exposed America’s progressive/left and Soros, as well as sounded the alarm on the post 1960’s terrorist hippies fronting the bills through Tides and Apollo Alliance as well as regulations through Sunstein. He exposed czars even before anyone knew czars even existed.
Beck has served as a clearing house for people like Barton and Horowitz and prompted Americans to read up on her Constitution and her history. He has taken the brunt of hatred and vitriol aimed at conservatives in general and done it with a smile and with pain in his heart. He has correctly assessed current events and has proven to be almost prophetic in his prognostications. And he has done it with research to back it up.
He’s made mistakes due to some serious character flaws… among which are non-attribution of sources, a narcicistic personality and a good deal of pride. But that said… America needs him now more than ever. I just hope he deals with some of these flaws and gets back on track soon.
Well said, las. I could not disagree with a single point that you bring out. For me, he vocalized much of what I was internally thinking and made it oh, so public. I just think that we sometimes forget that he, like all of us, has flaws too and it hurts when our heroes sometimes find their Kryptonite. It’s those times that we should be more reflective of ourselves and cut him a little slack. I know I, for one, have failed in that regard in the past.
Greta had Rick Perry on last night, he has an optimistic smile and said today was going to be a great day. O’Reilly said he was a dark horse in the race. I had it on but was reading things on the internet.
While I like Rick Perry I was kinda under impressed with the softball questions Glenn Beck threw at Perry. Why did he not ask about Perry’s record of deficit spending in Texas or the fact that he has never offered a balanced budget for Texas?? Why did he not ask about how Gov. Perry has grown the size of the Texas state government by 24% since he took office? Its great that Texas economy is growing but tax and spending the state into the poor house is not the answer. It periods of growth you don’t notice it but the State debt has increased over the past year alone from 27 billion in 2010 to 31 billion as of the end 2011. That’s a 15% increase in State debt in 1 year. That’s a red flag folks!
Deficit spending a increases in debt are the reasons the USA is having the problems it has now. Rick Perry….what makes us think you will do any different based on your tenure as Govenor of Texas??
Didn’t Perry just tell Beck that TX had a balanced budget amendment/law?
Why do companies come to TX, bringing jobs if the taxes are so high?
On the other hand, why didn’t Beck ask about the Islamic history propaganda taught in TX public schools?
At least he asked about the FED. For the US to prosper, we need a currency that has intrinsic value and that cannot be manipulated by Big Bank systems or foreign or malevolent interests.
My guess is because he now lives in Texas. ops….there goes objectivity!
At least Beck has supported true conservatives, Bachmann, Santorum – and now has given Perry some air time. Beck is not big on Newt, mocked him on the show and had Bachmann on right afterward to refute him. Beck is a full-fledged social constitutional conservative.
Conversely, Drudge and Coulter seem to be economic/political conservatives, NOT social/moral/religious conservatives. Coulter has gone all out for Romney. Drudge seems to give him more creds than any other candidate besides Santorum (who may not be completely conservative, according to his voting record and he took a compromised position on abortion in an interview this week.) Both C and D are thoroughly against Newt. She’s gone all out against Newt. The photos Drudge puts up of Newt are intentionally, ridiculously unflattering.
Perry is definitely showing presidential qualities now, but I’m still not 100% on him.
His deep moral and religious character speak well for him; however, Bush was religious yet sold us down the river. Robespierre had high personal morals by which he justified ruinous acts for the sake of the French people [NOT comparing either Perry or Bush to Robespierre but just evaluating the value of morals in politics only].
Without knowing first hand if Perry has accomplished more as Governor of Texas than did Bush, it’s difficult for me to evaluate if he would be a better POTUS. Santorum (ref Beck interview) apparently understands how to use politics for the sake of the Constitution.
Perry has done more than Bush. He has vetoed legislation over 230 times since getting into office so is not afraid of using that veto pen. Bush didn’t stand up to dems or rep and veto any lousy legislation. Perry actually cut spending for the first time since WW2. He has always balanced the budget. Refused to raise taxes (in fact he cut property taxes), or implement a state income tax, or raid the rainy day fund. He was pressured to do all that. He fought for tort reform and loser pays and got it. Defunded planned parenthood. And signed legislation to verify citizenship to get a drivers license. No DL for illegals. I could go on and on but please read the following and get the real truth on Rick Perry not what the MSM would have you believe or what some people post believing the MSM’s hit pieces.
Thanks. All info helps (did you write it?).
Note, ref GOP’s [restaurant]: Have they determined that the side-effects of menu items affect the non-eaters as well?
Beck said he and Perry disagreed on the border. He didn’t say how. Perry said he will close the border the first year of his Presidency. Does Beck not want it closed?
What really sucks is that the state gop has decided that the republican primary will be a closed primary now. So now I have to decide if I should compromise my principles and go redo my voter registration as a republican ( I have never been a member of any party) I really don’t like any of our political parties much at all. Oh, the dilemma!
I like closed primaries. It’s exclusive, but that’s the point. This is the forum for conservatives to choose who represents them, not a forum for liberals to come in and try to manipulate who their candidate runs against. In open Republican primaries up to 25% of the votes come from liberals. Why should that be allowed? They will not vote for the victor in the general election so allowing them into the primary is only giving them the chance to destroy or weaken the choice we make.
I like Perry and Santorum more now that I’ve heard them on Beck’s shows. Breitbart said that “Beck is dead” to him, but I still like Beck. His books are crystal clear and very well written.
I think Bachmann is out, and Santorum might gain ground…or he might sputter and never take off. Perry is the one solid chance to keep going through the race. Stay in it for the long haul, Perry.
Over on Drudge, they are holding an online caucus. Perry is holding his own. The Paulbots have invaded.
Of course, they always flood the polls.
