Glenn Beck Doesn't Believe Affair Allegations Because Ted Cruz Has Been Preparing His Entire Life To Be President

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck explained why he doesn't believe the recent National Enquirer story alleging that GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz has engaged in multiple extramarital affairs.

Among the various reasons why Beck is giving no credence to the story is the fact that Cruz has been raised from birth and been driven his entire life to become president and so he's not stupid enough to throw is all away in this reckless manner.

"This guy is driven," Beck said. "The first time I met his father, I said to him, 'He is going to get into the Senate and he's going to be exactly what he says he's going to be.' This was before he went into the Senate. And he [Cruz's father] said, 'Oh yes, I will kick his ass.' I've told that story a million times. What I haven't said is that at that point, we talked about him being president and I said, 'If he goes into the Senate and he does the right thing, he could be president.' His father said to me, 'I know.'"

"Ted has known that he could be the president from the beginning," Beck continued, noting that Cruz has been preparing for this moment his entire life. "You are not as driven as he is, you are not as smart as he is and then go in for your last four years before you're going to run for president, you don't get to 2012 and be thinking I'm going to run for president and think you can get away with that."
