But all's good right....Nothing bad could come of that kind of message.....pfft.

    What you don't seem to understand is there was no "right" official position when it came to egypt. It was a dynamic situation and it worked out just fine with multiple messages. Had we put all our support to Mubarak things could have gotten real nasty, yet to abandon him after all he did for the US wasn't right either. Obama and his crew did a good job of showing concern but staying out of it and keeping a low profile.
    Are you really upset that everyone had a different opinion? That may have been the plan.

    It's at 22:20 and forward on this show. The whole show is great but the actual piece is there.



    Now I know that the Beck detractors will mock and not even watch the video when it is presented for them to watch, but oh man, might I suggest that you just this one time watch it?

    Republicans are lying to, everyone talks of cutting ear marks and foriegn aid, yeah like that'll do anything, no one wants to actually tackle the real problems.

    Its really redundant to say that Obama is lying, he's a politician bro, that's as redundant as saying Micheal Jackson had plastic surgery.

    Politicians will continue to lie until we say enough. This is the one reason that if this country does indeed fail, it is because we allow it.

    No, I think we all know there is trouble. But continuing on like there is no problem, and then spending more is absurd.

    Everyone knows there is a problem, especially those people out of work, but it didn't just happen yesterday. Where was your outrage as Bush doubled the debt while the economy was booming? You seem to think Beck discovered the debt problem all on his own. Ross Perot has been there before.

    Are you just as outraged at wasting a trillion dollars in Iraq?

    Oh I see, so I can't say anything now, because I didn't say anything then? How is that not a fallacy?

    You didn't say anything then. I did.
    That just shows you are a partisan hack.
    I was more outraged at Bushs deficits because the economy was in good shape at that time. Now that the economy sucks and much of the spending is to keep it from going into a depression it's a little different.

    Many were annoyed with Bush spending, which is one of the reasons why his numbers ultimately went so low.

    But of course we also have to deal with the present rather than just pointing fingers. It's a matter of whatcha gonna do now.

    He didn't say anything and is therefore a "partisan hack"?

    You must spend a lot of time being "outraged".
