    The charity is for the the troops.
    It's NOT a protest.
    Why all the negativity? The guy just wants to take a day and bring people together. If it turns out differently I'll admit I was wrong.
    If I'm not mistaken what Mellie posted was part of his radio show. I don't think he mentioned Palin either but that doesn't mean she's not going to be there. Sorry you feel the need to have all t's crossed and i's dotted. I'm doing my best to help you out with your confusion.
    I have listened. It's not any better really. I haven't liked his style since the days he was at CNN. He starts with a conclusion and then works backward to make it fit. It's like his misspelling of "oligarch" label for Obama. He makes erroneous conclusions based on loose associations and spends most of his time appealing to emotion and speaking in platitudes. His basic theme is that he loves America and wants it to be great, but we are one hiccup away from bread lines and the KGB kicking in our door. I find it absurd.

    It isn't fair to attribute characteristics of a few crazies to all liberals. Your side has crazies too.

    It's ironic to me that he chose the Memorial to the President who presided over the most divided time in our history. I'm not attacking his charity. I don't believe that it will be non-partisan and non-political.

    I did not see; none of the above.
    Sadly, protesting is not feasible anymore.
    I think we need better tools for this current age of corruption.

    Wow IT...I'm really glad you were such a staunch and fervent attacker of military protests over the last 5 years of Bush's term. I always saw you in threads like these promoting anti-war protests lecturing people about troops deserving our undivided att.....

    Wait, my memory is actually failing me. I don't remember that. Am I wrong?

    I know, its amazing how Barack Obama speaks.

    We're talking about Obama right?

    Come on now IT, this is disingenuous. Its clear through the context of that section that the "I'm" is supposed to actually reference the person he's speaking to:

    You are not going to be able to go in there and fix that, unless you start at the other end of the mall and you start by looking and reflecting at Abraham Lincoln. And then you look and reflect. That's what the reflecting pool means. Reflect. You look one way and you are looking at Abraham Lincoln and you can reflect on him. You look the other way and you see the Washington Monument and everything that Washington stood for and you reflect on him. Once you do that and then make your choice, two can play that game. Or I'm going to be like Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. When you do that, you'll fix the country. I'm convinced of it.
    Because it was spoken, not written initially, the prasing of the SINGULAR line you're focusing on gets jumbled a bit compared to the intent shown through speaking and intonation there. The statement is stating after you look at those monuments and reflect the person he's speaking to must make a choice. "Two can play the game. Or I'm going to be like Abraham Lincoln and George Washington".

    Essentially switching into a form of writing where he's speaking what the person should be speaking.

    To say that he's literally saying that he, Glenn Beck, will be like Abe or Washington would be like suggesting that in this famous line:

    I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?
    Old Harry Callahan is asking if he, Harry Callahan, feels lucky.

    But we all know that's not the case, he's asking if the guy he's about to shoot feels lucky by using a form of speaking where he's essentially asking the question in the first person for the individual.

    Much like Beck was doing, which was clear in the context where the entire paragraph is him talking to people about what THEY'RE going to do.

    It was a right winger that came up with that claim and attacked Hannity for that. Don't talk about stuff you know nothing about, it makes you look silly.

    Read the context. He's talking about everyone being at the rally and standing between these two great men. Stop reading into things that aren't there.

    Then you'd be wrong. Unless you think speaking about faith, hope and charity is only a right-wing thing.

    its simple grandstanding like all political-like creature do, but its for a good cause, so i don't see a problem.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
