While working at WPGC, Beck met his first wife, Claire. The couple married and had two daughters, Mary and Hannah; Mary was born in 1988 with cerebral palsy, the result of a series of strokes at birth. The couple divorced in 1994 amid Beck's struggles with substance abuse. Along with being a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, Beck has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. He cites the help of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) in his sobriety and attended his first AA meeting in November 1994, the month he states he stopped drinking alcohol and smoking cannabis.
In 1996, while working for a New Haven-area radio station, Beck was admitted to Yale University through a special program for non-traditional students. Beck took one theology class, "Early Christology," and then dropped out.
In 1999, Beck married his second wife, Tania. They joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in October 1999, partly at the urging of his daughter Mary. The couple has two children, Raphe (who is adopted) and Cheyenne. Beck lives in Connecticut with his wife and four children.

What better qualifications could he have to teach?

"This Administration will constantly strive to promote an ownership society in America. We want more people owning their own home. It is in our national interest that more people own their own home. After all, if you own your own home, you have a vital stake in the future of our country."" GWB
But the odds require that SOONER OR LATER... they'll eventually produce an argument wherein they demonstrate that rejecting American principle can potentially provide the bearer with the means to ADHERE TO THE CORRELATING TITLE.
And yes... this is a backhanded challenge to simply state where you've the means to disagree with Beck, by showing where he was inaccurate and has wrongly represented the facts, providing for a valid means to disagree... and NOT be recognized as a Progressive anti-American.
It's not a particularly complex equation ...
Thus the question becomes given that you're not being forced to push this position: 'Why would someone willingly push a position for which they're unable to find a plausible defense?'
