Glenn Beck Makes a Good Point

All Posts No Comments

Glenn Beck was arguing with a caller today about whether the Big Three should get a bailout. He asked the caller if he believed in capitalism, and the guy said, “Yes but…” and Glenn said something like, “No, there is no but. Character only matters when your back is against the wall. It’s easy for your kid to say no to drugs when he’s home with you; it’s only tough when he’s with his friends. The only time it matters whether you believe in capitalism is when we’re on the ropes, like we are right now.”

Of course, Beck’s views on foreign trade are nutty–he tells us it’s important to buy American cars, in order to keep the money in our economy–but still, good stuff for a radio talk show host.
