I’ve been asking the same question for months: What audience is Beck playing to? Although he’s done great things with his show – educating and encouraging Americans, uncovering people who really don’t belong in government – he’s sitting on the fence, pandering to the left leaners too much of the time.
Does anyone (anyone who thinks like a conservative) seriously believe that we would be worse off with McCain as president? How many marxists/socialists would be in the administration right now under McCain? How many 9/11 truthers would be there? Would we be scrapping the missile defense for eastern Europe and crapping on our allies if McCain were president? Would he be putting off generals, and our soldiers, in Afghanistan?
McCain was not the ideal candidate but to say that we would be worse off with him, is way too much of a stretch for anyone who has a thinking brain. So the question remains, who is Beck talking to?
If you criticize Beck on most conservative blogs, you will have the wrath of the Beckites down on you. When Levin calls this a cult of personality, he is right on the mark (pardon the pun.) These people brook no criticism of him.
I give credit where and when I think it’s due. When Beck has uncovered corruption or when he’s said great things, I credit him for it. But when he’s pandering – and by his quote to Couric, he is pandering – I call that out, as well. And honestly, I’m disappointed.
The Beckites should be as well.
