On his radio show today, Glenn Beck claimed that Obama is weak because he did not call on Fox News at his news conference last night. Beck also called Helen Thomas a left wing activist columnist, and equated progressives to Marxists. I think somebody is a little upset today over not getting a question.
On his radio show today, Glenn Beck launched his latest conspiracy theory that President Obama is making a big deal out of nothing when it comes to the swine flu. Beck claimed that Obama is using the swine flu to get Kathleen Sebelius confirmed as Sec. of Health and Human Services.
Glenn Beck took his anti-global warming rhetoric to a new high or low, depending on your perspective today by comparing former vice president Al Gore's congressional testimony on the importance of cap and trade legislation to the lies of Adolph Hitler, Joseph Goebbels, and the Nazis.
There is a fine line between the strength of the left's questioning of their officials (a good thing) and destabilizing reactionary anger (a bad thing).

Just for kicks, I have put together a list of the top 5 Obama conspiracy theories. Many of these have been built upon since the election. Obama is now a fascist, who is a British citizen, who is also working on a long form forgery of his birth certificate.
There's an email going around spreading fear into the hearts of home gardeners across America...People who love to garden or finally resorted to gardening to avoid food poising from our less-than regulated food supply courtesy of the under-staffed Bush FDA are now terrified that the Food Police are coming to our backyards to dig up our heirloom tomatoes and force us to eat hormone-injected, dyed-red tomatoes that taste like plastic.
Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC) continues to try to give a rise to his 2012 presidential hopes by waging war against the stimulus package. Today on the Glenn Beck show, Sanford said that accepting stimulus money was the equivalent of fiscal child abuse.
According to Think Progress, GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann went on Glenn Beck's radio show today and peddled the conspiracy theory that that the world is moving towards a global currency. Interestingly, Bachmann defended herself by saying, "This isn't Michele Bachmann being a kook." Is this in comparison to the other times when she was being a kook?
During an interview over the weekend, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) called for armed overthrow of the U.S. government. What is the issue that has Bachmann calling for marches in the streets? She is worried about the danger of a cap and trade system to combat global warming which she denied as a human caused problem.
