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."

    "Now what happend when dems took control in 2006? Hmmm something called the great reccesion."
    ---------------------
    You're deluding yourself. Democrats did not take control in 2006. Try January 2007 on for size. The first budget year they passed was for FY2007-2008, which took effect Oct. 1, 2007. The Great Recession "officially" began in December 2007, but the economy had already been in a slow down since early 2006 when the mortgage crisis began rearing its' ugly head. Republicans had held the House and Senate for over a decade.

    Democrats take over two months before a massive recession hits and you want to blame them for driving the economy over a cliff? Go ahead, blame Democrats. The party of responsibility takes no responsibility.

    "4 reasons why Rick Perry's exercise of power got him in trouble"

    Man was that written in a blatantly hamfisted way...you could really see the square peg going into the round false equivalence hole on that one. Let me help:

    5. Because he was and is a hair's breadth away, at most, from claiming that the governor's veto power is so absolute and without constraint that he could next week demand the resignation of ANY elected official he wants and for ANY reason and then use public and private threats of defunding via veto as his leverage. For example, why not threaten to veto all state aid to Houston because "ermahgerd gay mayor something something Gomorrah"? According to Cowboy Fonzie, he could.

    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.
    ------------------------------------–
    You are strongly suggesting that you have been listening to Beck for over a decade.

    It's hopeless really. Anyone who thinks a recession the size we suffered can be set in motion, instigated and come to fruition with a big initial collapse like that all within a couple months that contained zero massive policy changes clearly lacks the education to be a reasonable, rational contributor to finding solutions that help prevent it from happening again in the future.

    I DO NOT want her as commander in chief after her watching americans die in benghaze

    But Bush overseeing the slaughter of our children and the plundering of our treasury for a war of lies was just peachy keen Granny?

    Is he talking about Hillary Clinton, co-author of the Clinton-Kerry foreign policy? It's really not working out so well right now. I would not start measuring for new drapes in the Oval Office in January 2017 if I were her. A lot can happen between now and the election in 2016. In fact, a lot of really bad stuff in happening right now.

    How does Beck know, anything could happen between now and 2016

    It looks like Eric Cantor was paid off for being the darling of Wall Street while he was in congress. He is getting his payback with a high paying job, and all he had to do was violate his congressional oath to America.

    @salty dog
    Oh and tell us again the Republican plan, bankrupt state after state, and give the money to the rich, we seen it already, look at Christie and his actions in New Jersey, and how's that working for them, its not.

    You are right Salty. Even my far right Republican freinds in NJ have come to despise Chris Christie.

    What really has the RWNJs filling their diapers is that 11 million more Americans have health insurance and the number of uninsured is at its lowest since the Bush reign of error.

  11. The GOP Solution

    The GOP Solution: Turn all the Old, Sick, Poor, Non-white, Non-christian, Female, and Gay people into slaves. Then whip them until they are Young, Healthy, Rich, White, Christian, Male, and Straight. Or until they are dead. Then turn them into Soylent Green to feed the military during the next "unfunded/off-the-books" war. And don't forget the GOP all time favorites........TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH!!!..........and........GET RID OF SS AND MEDICARE!!!

    ------------
    Issa's investigation as hostile and political as it was, finally brought out the truth that there was no stand-down, no watching people die. Is this myth still alive? Were you a Birther before this? I actually take heart that the only criticisms of Clinton are conspiracy theories instead of facts. Still, tin foil hats vote on emotion over facts, so.......

    @Silence-So the right wants her to run for potus? Really? The person that is the beggest threat to the right for 2016 and they want her to run. Sounds like you don`t like the fact that Beck is saying she will win if she runs.Btw, Beck was extremely critical of the Bush presidency. Did you ever watch him on CNN during the Bush years?

    ?? – So working with allies and building a coalition to combat ISIS and tea baggers is not a sound foreign policy? The Bush Doctrine was the main reason for ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Take some responsibility, instead of blaming your failures on democrats.

    @Rudy-I watch all three major cable news networks for quite some time now. If you watched Beck on CNN during the Bush years most people would have thought he was on the left for sure. By your comment I can tell you never watched Beck when he was on CNN just when he was on FOX.

    Hey, come on, people.
    IT'S ONLY GLEN BECK!!

    What does he know??

    I'm waiting for O'Reilly before I take the prognosis seriously. 🙂

    The lesson, as always, something even Glenn Beck can understand: if your party gives voters no viable alternative, what result do you expect?

    Humm,
    That was the prediction back in 2008, also. Not sure the people are too happy with the situation in the country now. Hillary will be more of the same we have now. ??????

    smith – " @Fair-Your right, without Clinton the Dems got some pretty slim pickins left out there. "

    You both realize, I'm sure, that 2 years out (2006) few had heard of Barack Obama, and fewer still expected him to win 2 terms as President.

    I'm hoping for a repeat: someone not yet acknowledged as a prime candidate.
    And you righties are likely stuck with someone from the run-down clown car from 2012.

    I said *listening* to Beck, not watching Beck. Both Glenn Beck and Lou Dobbs had a definite lean towards the right during their times at CNN. Both men should have been following scripts, which they seemed to depart from quite frequently. However, I am not surprised that you didn't notice it.

    No RWNJ watches 3 cable news networks. Unless you think Fox and Fools, O'Reilly, and Hannity are separate news networks.

    Apparently, he's not as DUMB as he looks.

    But don't worry, he'll glom onto the first contrived rightwing poll that comes out showing how someone from the [R] clown car will be president. He and Rove can then massage each others' bottoms with their thumbs on election night in front of the FoxNews cameras.

    Tampa Tim, you love to change the subject. Don't you love Hillary, her slogan "Elect the first women President" just like the slogan "elect the first AFRICAN-American"

    Actually, it was obvious that they were both ideologically driven, which is probably why they are no longer with CNN.
