Earlier this month, Glenn Beck hosted David Barton for a discussion on the importance of the 2012 election. During the segment, Beck admitted that he felt “powerless” and complained that the media was failing to hold our leaders accountable.
Even the Republican candidates are “cowards,” Beck asserted, and, as evidence of the fact that “no one is saying anything” about what is happening to this nation, he singled out Mitt Romney as he marveled that he has been unwilling to call President Obama a “socialist”:
It’s becoming spooky. There is so much power being concentrated and no one is saying anything. Even our Republican candidates are cowards; they won’t call it out for what it is. I mean, Mitt Romney won’t even say this guy, he’s a socialist. Socialist? I’m so far past socialist – I left socialist territory with Barack Obama two years ago and he won’t even say he’s a socialist. So how do you possibly, how can we change things?
