These days, Glenn Beck’s TV and radio programs are little more than exercises in projection and hypocrisy, so it was no surprise to see him have a complete meltdown on his radio program today over President Obama’s remarks yesterday hailing reports that more than seven million people had signed up for health insurance under Obamacare.
Declaring that the seven million figure was obviously phony, Beck flew into a rage against Obama and the “rat bastards” in the media who refuse to hold him accountable for his pathological lying.
“This guy,” Beck said of Obama, “you put him in a military uniform, I’m not kidding you, you put him on a balcony in a military uniform, this guy is a full-fledged dictator.”
“He’s a sociopath!,” Beck proclaimed, later in the broadcast. “He’s sociopathic!.”
Then, after an hour of ranting about Obama and the press and the Republicans, Beck finally snapped and declared that he is “not going to pay attention to these people any more, I am not going to waste my life,” screaming that “I have a right to pursue my happiness, I have a right to do what I was born to do!”
“My state of mind is great,” he concluded, “’cause I’ve had enough”:
Upon returning from the commercial break, Beck resumed railing against all of these same people while simultaneously asserting that he was done paying attention to them.
