Do they pass out a "talking points" memo or something?

Fox News host Glenn Beck applauded the tea-party protesters and grassroots organizers who are "taking time out of our busy lives" to work against the enactment of health care reform.

Beck said the 9/12ers, as they are also referred to, "are reading 2,000-page healthcare bills on the weekend. [They] are willing to stand in line and take our shoes off before the plane actually hits the tower."

Seems health care as a terrorist is a common theme today...

and yes, I am JOKING about the MEMO!

  • That is a horrible metaphor. I don't care who the speaker is, using such a tragedy as a talking point is reprehensible. Another reason to avoid Beck--the heartlessness of his comments demonstrate that he really doesn't care about Americans or America--all he cares about is his personal opinion.

  • Both parties distribute talking points on a regular basis. During campaign season it can be daily or even more often than that. That's where the phrase comes from. If you're registered for updates with your party of choice they will be texted directly to you whenever they update them. How can there be anyone at all interested in politics who does not know that?

    That republicans don't like the bill. And since it seems to have escaped your lil old attention span, it is election day today.

  • OMG, did you watch the ENTIRE show? ROFL... HE was talking about BEFORE 9-11 had security asked people to take off their shoes and go through high level sec. Americans would have been outraged at the idea. But SINCE 9-11, most Americans are willing to take the extra time and DO IT RIGHT... America wants it done right! America wants REAL CHANGE. Twist all you want in that 1 minute snippet, sweet... That is hilarious.

  • So Sweet, did you copy this from Huffington Post without watching the whole Glenn Beck show yourself? Or did you just blindly believe in Huff Po without doing your own research. Newsflash: Glenn Beck's show is longer than the 1 min youtube video provided... Too Funny...
