Glenn Beck, For Financial Bailout Before He Was Against ItSeptember 22, 2009 at 8:50 am | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment
Like anyone is surprised:
He [Obama] will say that Bush started us down the path toward socialism, and he’d be right by that. Bush started the crazy spending. He would be right again. Bush started the bailouts. Yes, he did — hated him for it.
BECK: [W]e are in the middle of an all-out financial emergency, and emergencies have a way of really testing people.
In normal times, under normal circumstances, if you tune in to me, you know me as somebody who would tell the federal government exactly where to take their bailout plans and shove it right up their you-know-what. But these are anything but normal times.
I thought about it an awful lot this weekend, and while it takes me — it takes everything in me to say this, I think the bailout is the right thing do.
The “Real Story” is: The $700 billion that you’re hearing about now is not only, I believe, necessary, it is also not nearly enough, and all of the weasels in Washington know it.
You are a dirtbag, and you are lying to yourself and to others.
