    I'm sorry Zyphlin, but Glenn Beck isn't a politician. He's a media personality. But to set your mind at ease, Keith Olbermann was a douchebag for his Special Comment about Scott Brown.

    He said "you" like 13 times and switched it to "I" when it would have made more sense to say "you" if that was his intent. That's how I saw it. I see what you are saying. I thought it was worded poorly and the intent was ambiguous. He sets the tone with this:

    I hope it will be something much, much deeper than a tea party. I believe what we are creating is going to be something that will be one for the history books. There is not going to be one word of politics from the stage, not one. Because the way to fix Washington is not through politics but through each of us as individuals. Because when we fix ourselves and we are united on the principle of honor and honesty and integrity, they will fear us like they've never feared us before.
    Then unfortunately I got hung up on repetition of "you". When he said "I" I missed the context. It didn't help that they stopped the sentence unnecessarily and started a new sentence with "Or". It would have made more sense if it was grammatically correct. I misread that and see your point. I wasn't being disingenuous.

    The game, that he's referencing, is the political game played on the capital where people are trying to fix Washington. He's suggesting you can either keep playing that, or be like what he's describing Washington and Lincoln as doing and fix the COUNTRY.
    So Washington and Lincoln didn't play the political game on the Capitol? I'm not sure I understand what was different about them. And it sure seems to me that he is suggesting that if you go to his rally, think about Washington and Lincoln and emulate them, the country will be fixed. But this won't be political. Somehow our country will be fixed by people emulating former Presidents that supposedly didn't deal with Congress.

    Seriously, I'm not a fan of Beck, but in no way shape or form is he suggesting he's like Lincoln or Washington
    I agree. I retract that accusation.

    In regards to Lincoln and Washington not playing the political games in the capital...

    I never said Glenn Beck stuck to facts, was overly intelligent, or doesn't use hyperbole and misrepresentation if not outright lies at times

    I'm by no means a big fan. I just had issue with the notion he was putting himself on their level.

    Don't be so quick to judge next time. Your prejudice against Beck got in the way of your reading comprehension.

    I'm human. I still think it will be a partisan/political affair.

    Have any liberals been invited to perform?

    No idea. Would any liberals put aside their prejudices against Glenn Beck long enough to find out what it's actually about?

    When someone loses credibility like he has done then people will be prejudiced against them. I'd listen to George Will.

    If it's anything but, I expect the Cubs to make a turnaround and win the World Series this year.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Just because people may not like him or what he has to say, doesn't mean he lacks credibility.

    I asked this question before. It was an honest question. I'd really like to know if there are any liberal speakers asked to perform.
