This clip comes from Monday’s show where Beck goes to the chalkboard to show what Obama’s deficits look like as a % of GDP (using White House projections, which will fall on the better side). In this clip he is hypothetically attributing the years of Obama’s spending to Bush (as Obama would have you believe) to show what Obama’s best year would look like against prior administration’s deficit spending. The first two columns represent the average % of deficit to GDP for Clinton and Bush.
As this clip starts, he has already attributed the first 2 years of Obama’s term to Bush and proceeds to do the same for the following two years. He ends up with what would be Obama’s best year ever regarding the deficit – the 1st year of his second term. Again, all of this according to the White House numbers. Obama’s deficits are so overwhelming that I believe that’s when Beck seems to have a moment where he admits that perhaps he over generalizes that both parties are the same when it comes to taking us to the poor house. He still holds strong that Bush spending was bad (which it was), but then states “but we’ve never seen anything like Obama, ever!”
I would imagine that Mark Levin and Rush will be happy to hear him admit that, especially since Rush refuted Beck’s “two parties are the same mantra” today without calling him by name.
Beck’s ‘moment’ comes around 1:50 if you want to jump ahead:
