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."

    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" !!

    So you are admitting that Hillary Clinton is a total failure. Thanks for the honesty, finally.

    "Just a reminder that Glenn Beck was warning about the creation of an Islamic Caliphate at least 4-5 years ago"

    Just a reminder that Glenn Beck has been warning about an Islamic caliphate ever since 9-11 as part of the right-wing-nutjob islamaphobia-for-profit demagoguery industry it birthed. With Beck, it's all about $$$$$$$, Jethro, not prescience, rational thought or cogent analysis. Moreover, if you're referring to ISIS as if they're the first to want or try to establish an Islamic caliphate in that region, then you were clearly born yesterday. As to your misuse of that Brennan quote, by which you indicate that you fear a ISIS somehow capable of "GLOBAL DOMINATION through a violent Islamic caliphate," let me reduce what Brenna would tell you to something you can easily comprehend: take off your tinfoil hat.

    @Tony D: and you are merely a rightwing reflection of what you disparage. Why don't you get out of your own delusional bubble? All Beck does is fear-monger and pretend that he's some kind of prophet. He's gotten rich off of your fear. Congratulations.

    I am going over the list of republican schievements : Great Recession, record job loss, destroyed auto and housing industry, gave pal Putin Georgia, 15 embassy attacks with 50 deaths, 9-11 with almost 3000 deaths, unnecessary wars costing 4500 American lives and a hundred thousand Iraqi civilian lives, torture, bank bailouts, stock market drop to under 7000, government shut down, credit downgrade, government obstruction, tax cuts for those who did not need it, etc.

    Tommy, you are, of course equally outraged by the 50 deaths under w bush? Because if your not, shame on you. You guys really OK with investing in out of context accusations? I guess it is all you have, so, my bad, continue.

    "take off your tinfoil hat."

    It's not going to happen, but good try bringing clarity to the matter. The tinfoil crowd is thick (in more ways than one) on this thread this morning. I suspect Glenn Beck does what he can to bring out the best in them.

    Dar you are correct. When clinton was potus and gop control of congress things went great. Now what happend when dems took control in 2006? Hmmm something called the great reccesion.
    Delusional thinking. The recession officially began is 2007 during the summer. The democrats took office in January '07. Still want to stick with that math, champ? I think you'll find the banking/investment de-regulation was well underway before that- so was the building of the housing and crap-loan bubble.

    TT, it really is amazing how the rwnj can ignore all of that, it's reality, just not the one they can accept

    If RWNJs had a single accomplishment, they would be shouting it from the rooftops at Fox News.

    The best way to keep the government in check is to have a Democrat for the President with the republicans in control of the congress or vice versa. When Bill was president the republicans had control of congress and things worked out well for all of us. (well, pretty much all of us)
    I am not as sure about that. Essentially we have that now- a Democrat in the White House, the House of Representatives run firmly by the GOP, and a Senate having to pass everything by "supermajority" because of the GOP. Essentially because there are not 60 Democrats in the Senate, the Senate is in neutral while the minority leader (Mr. McConnell) filibusters everything.

    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.
    Well, first, the middle east is aflame because of the neo-cons, not Mr. Obama. Second, wages are up, unemployment is down, and the last quarters economic growth was greater than 4%. As far as the ACA- 11 million Americans have acquired health insurance- after 8 million lost it under Bush. By any metric using facts, the Obama years are far better than the Bush ones.

    "Now what happend when dems took control in 2006? Hmmm something called the great reccesion."

    So very very much wrong with that statement. The only thing it does right is provide a shockingly accurate example of the kind of ridiculously misinformed thinking that the GOP/Teatrolls are able to teach their base in the absence of an MSM that serves to inform the public rather than just line its pockets by pushing false equivalence and nontroversy.

    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.?
    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.
    As your posts are soooo similar. Really? Ms. Clinton does have credentials- you may certainly deny them (at your own risks), or sit quietly and hum Benghazi if you prefer- but do remember that a Republican led House commission cleared Clinton (and anyone else) of any culpability on the Libyan affair.
    Meanwhile, try this on: Mr. Obama has accomplishments- what would be wrong with continuing or building on them? After all the GOP has zilch, zero, nada for the last 6 years- except taking down the government as attempted blackmail for keeping Americans from health insurance under the ACA. You boys may want to ponder keeping that as an "accomplishment".

    TT, yup, they have a messaging problem alright, how do you tell people that their morals are dependent on your wealth, if your poor, go away and die, tough message to sell, that's for sure.

    Hey RWNJs! Any thoughts why the orange incompetent has not called the house back to deal with the ISIS emergency? The house controls the money and I would hope they would vote the funds the president needs.

    I wonder where he thinks the country was when Obama took over, I mean that, I'd love to hear it.

    Eight to nine hundred thousand jobs lost a month, stock market lost half it's value, two wars based on outright lies, an economy on the brink of disaster, man do they sound stupid!

    Tommy G

    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.
    As the U.S. suffered 12 times as many diplomatic attacks under Mr. Bush, I can only imagine how much you must hate him. Meanwhile, as the feckless Republicans under the criminal Mr. Issa haven't done anything but waste $50 million on their Benghazi witch hunt (and still have nothing), I think you should abandon that fantasy of Benghazi being some sort of defining moment for Ms. Clinton.
    The GOP has way more blood on its hands- 6,000 American war dead (that the press couldn't cover), 120,000 innocent Iraqis killed, 2 million more turned loose as refugees across the Middle East (wonder where IS came from?).
    If the most damning thing the Right can say about Ms. Clinton is "Benghazi"- then, once again, they've got nothing. Just like when Bush could no longer concern himself with the search for bin Laden- nothing!

  23. reality check please

    Inherenting the Obama, let me get this right Obama is responsible for all the worlds problems, but George w isn't responsible for the state of our country after eight full years of reign? Nothing wrong with that perspective, no sir!

    Worse Tampa, the GOP not only has no accomplishments, they have no plans. I have heard nothing from the Right as far as what they would do if elected- and strangely enough, the one thing they say they will do-cut taxes for the rich- we know doesn't do anything at all- we have 40 years of solid data to support that.

    Glenn Beck is no prophet. He does the standard right wing talk show doom and gloom over and over and over, often wrong. The conservatives want Clinton to run since they have all these conspiracy theories already started about her, and they have a faithful, lock step, tin foil, ex-birther following believing it all.
