Glenn Beck: Hillary Clinton 'will be the next president'

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Glenn Beck may not want to vote for Hillary Clinton, but he is convinced that she will win the presidency in 2016.

Beck, the conservative radio and television host, used part of his radio show on Tuesday to talk about the prospect of Clinton running for president and why, if she does, she "will be the next president of the United States."

    When Glenn takes a break from pontificating, and exhales, he is occasionally capable of rational thought.

    Yeah, I too want my old girl friend to be next Prez. She give me a Russian Reset button and I reset back to good old Soviet Union empire days. She is a genius! And hey, those 4 Americans she got killed in Benghazi and then lied about it, well stuff happens you know. They are just collateral damage and of course she lies but what difference does it make right? After 8 years of your mommy pants president, my old girl friend will be the icing on the cake! Oh, you guys know how to make old Vlad one happy commie!

  5. reality check please

    Even if the Democrats win, she will inevitably approve the keystone, making the Koch brothers a cool hundred billion, which they will use to buy our government, regardless of party . They have gained control of Canada, all books regarding climate change removed, against the law to posses such material, that is frightening, very frightening, when in human history have we seen this type of government control? Wake up, these guys have your Republican party by the short hairs, and they're not complaining, they're too busy counting their contributions from them. Please wake up people, they have clearly set their sights on you, trying yo eliminate workers rights organizations, tell women they aren't capable of deciding for themselves about abortion, working on tsking your right to vote away, access to healthcare, the list goes on what's wrong with you people for crying out loud.

    I think Mr. Beck is trying his hand at reverse psychology! He's even throwing down a challenge to the GOTP: 'see, she'll bring up the good years of Bill's success, we only have Reagan who the 18-35 set don't remember! Best come up w/a take charge, white dude or well lose, bad'! What I'm reading between the lines is that he's worried! He can see, what I see, a party whose only message is 'Obama is Wrong'! Out of that we have obstruction, divisiveness, histrionics, anger & an ongoing internal battle! From a supposed fiscally conservative party we have gotten, the last 5-6 yrs, Citizens United & a $24 billion, 3 wk government shutdown! Not to mention all the other stuff that could've been accomplished! Their only solid plan was to make Obama a 1 term president, since that didn't work they've been throwing a fit about it & refuse to work w/him! I wouldn't trust these drama queens to take out my garbage, let alone run the country! I think that's more like what Glen is really saying, if he were honest w/himself, that is!!

  7. Yeah, just like in 2008?

    Hmmmm... Hillary the automatically elected President huh? No need to hold any primaries or general elections, just annoint her now, just like in 2008 right? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    The far left progressives/socialists/communists in the Democrat Party HATE Hillary Clinton and want Elizabeth Warren to run. This is why Hillary didn't even show up at their annual nut fest. She didn't want to get booed. And there is a lot of talk of her being challenged from the left, just like Obama did in 2008.

    Now add to this every time Hillary opens her mouth, her foot ends up in it and her poll numbers have done nothing but decline and she will have a Republican controlled House and Senate, and I think that chasing after her new grand child will be much more appealing for grandma Hillary.

  8. Inheriting the Obama Disaster

    By 2015/16, Obama will have sent nearly the entire planet into total chaos with his incompetent non-leadership abilities. We will still have record unemployment, declining wages, pathetic economic growth and Obamacare will be in full swing wrecking our healthcare system.

    And Hillary Clinton, a former member of the Obama administration that helped give us all that expects to easily ride to victory? Seriously? Obama V3.0? Elect her just for the novelty of it while the country swirls down the toilet? Seriously America? If it happens it will be the final nail in this country's coffin. We don't need an empty pants suit after 8 years of an empty suited Obama.

    I also believe that Hillary will win handily and in a landslide BUT only and only IF she will distinguish herself from the other side which loves WARs more than anything. Once mistake is made, is never repeated.

    -practically speaking, you got to be an idiot to put another Bush in the office that world revolves around. Don't you think these bushes and Reagan the main problem that made this well organized nation to fiscal collapse. Yes, build small homes and condominiums, to save energy. Get out and VOTE–I am telling young, college grads, black, Indian/Chinese Americans, Hisponics, women etc. Don't forget to vote straight Democratic ticket.

  11. Fair is Fair


    Hmm, some peeps have some memory issues. Beck was all over GWB during his two terms as potus. Clinton will win because she`ll lock in the Independent voter block and the GOP really doesn`t have a strong candidate.
    IF she runs, perhaps. All indications are that she will, but I think her decision will be strongly influenced by the political landscape after the mid-terms. The democrats better hope she does – their bench is very thin. Biden? Please... O'Malley? Who's that? Warren? Too far left to attract the independents. Sanders? We're not the USSA yet.

    @Vikingwoman-So because Beck thinks Clinton will win in 2016 it has to some sort of trick on his part because he has been critical of Obama? Ladies and Gents. here is a great example of the thoughts of a far left-wing zealot.

  13. Hillary Clinton - Butcher of Benghazi

    I certainly hope Obama and John Kerry are more on the ball as 9/11 approaches than Hillary Clinton was when she got our ambassador to Libya killed. I guess we don't have to worry about a repeat in Libya as terrorists now fly their flag over our embassy as we have abandoned Libya entirely. Nice work Obama and Hillary. Kill Khaddafi, get our Ambassador killed then retreat and hand the country over to the terrorists. And the country wants more of THIS with Hillary Clinton in the White House?!!

    Yeah, uh, it doesn't matter who is the Democrats candidate, they win, hands down, and fyi, many moderate Democrats want someone else. Your missing the fact that your party has nothing to run on, no one to run with, sad simple truth bub.

    Quit blaming Hillary for Bengazhi. The GOP cut the funding for security to spite Obama being president and now they do not want to take the blame for being led by hatred and bogotry. I have not forgotten and will not forget how the Good Old Boy network has tried to belittle President Obama every step of the way and they will pay for it in the end when the rest of America votes their lying you know whats out of office. All Politicians are not to be trusted to a certain extent, but the GOP has won the title to never be trusted. Right now they want the President to start a war so that they can line their pockets even more. If we would stop meddling in other countries business and try to convert their way of living to ours we would not be in this mess and it started way before Obama was elected, but he is the only one they like to blame. The truth is the GOP is trying to take over the Middle East only for greed period. I don't see any of Romney or any other rich GOP child going to wars. They are all talk and no substance. They have the poor whites scared to death of everything and that right there tells me what type of people they are by using scare tactics.

  17. just asking

    ok, so how will hillary clinton be any different than obama? exactly what is she going to do differently and what is she going to do the same? let's hear some specifics and not the stupid meaningless drivel she always answers with. what has she learned from all her mistakes at the state dept.?

    September 3, 2014 10:08 am at 10:08 am |
  18. Say WHAT???

    I'm still waiting to see all of those Hillary Clinton accomplishments. And I mean hard concrete accomplishments, not some ridiculous statement about how she restored the world's trust in America (which Obama has destroyed), which cannot possibly be proven. We already have a pretty long list of Hillary Clinton's failures. Let's compare the lists.

    We need Hillary Clinton in the White House like we need an Ebola epidemic in this country. Not sure which would kill more people.

    Hey Vlad Puteen-What's worse ? A Reset Button on Russia or Gazing into the eyes of the Real Vlad & seeing his soul & declaring him to be an All-Right Guy ? Oh, re Benghazee, what about St Ronald R. getting 283 US Marines killed in Beirut after MILITARY Leaders told him ,"Don't Put Them There" !!

    Just a reminder that Glenn Beck was warning about the creation of an Islamic Caliphate at least 4-5 years ago. But we had the now head of the CIA John Brennan say this:

    “Our strategy is … shaped by a deeper understanding of al Qaeda’s goals, strategy and tactics,” Mr. Brennan said on June 29, 2011. “I’m not talking about al Qaeda’s grandiose vision of global domination through a violent Islamic caliphate. That vision is absurd, and we are not going to organize our counterterrorism policies against a feckless delusion that is never going to happen. We are not going to elevate these thugs and their murderous aspirations into something larger than they are.”

    So Glenn Beck does have a certain ability to be forward looking. Actually, he just took the terrorists at their word. Something the Obama administration refuses to do and instead chooses to live in their own little dream world.

    So I think in this case, Glenn Beck is admitting the country will continue its leftist death spiral by electing Hillary Clinton.

    Hillary should not be prez, and neither should any of these corporate partisan stooges. You want real change? Stop supporting the 2-party plutocracy.

    The republican bench for 2016? RWNJs would be better off running a wooden bench instead of their criminal governors or Darling Ted Cuuz.

    Quit blaming Hillary for Bengazhi. The GOP cut the funding for security

    The problem is your bogus, uneducated statement is that Hillary Clinton was responsible as the Secretary of State. Congressional testimony stated that funding cuts were NOT the reason for substandard security in Benghazi (against State Dept. requirements). And this was after many attacks in the area, open threats made, and two previous attacks on the very same complex.

    Hillary Clinton should have been fired for gross malfeasance leading to the deaths of 4 Americans. Instead both she and Obama concocted a big lie to tell to the American people in the middle of a Presidential election to save both of their skins. She even told it to the families of the four dead Americans, face to face. How cold and heartless is THAT?!

    This woman should never, ever be near any controls of power ever again.
