The Two Faces of Glenn Beck.

At "Another War of Jenkin's Ear," this post says it all about our media opportunist, Glenn Beck.

Glenn Beck Was For The Bailout, Before He Was Against It

Now, that Glenn Beck has a Fox News show, he spends an awful lot of time railing against the Obama administration. He’s so
strongly opposed to government bailouts, that one of the major underlying themes of the Glenn Beck 9/12 Project is staunch opposition to bailouts (past and potential future).

But, before Obama was elected POTUS and when Glenn Beck
was on CNN, he was singing a very different tune. One could say that Glenn Beck was for the bailouts before he was against them. Not only was he for the bailout, but he argued that it wasn’t big enough!

On September 22, 2008, speaking about the bailouts Glenn Beck said:

The “REAL STORY” is the $700 billion that you`re hearing about now is not only, I believe, necessary, it is also not nearly enough, and all of the weasels in Washington know it.

You can do some searching and find Glenn Beck offering his support for the bailout program then, when the election was still in play and while Bush was still in office.

So what’s changed between now and then to justify Glenn
Beck’s wild reversal of his original bailout advocacy? Well,

Obama is the president and Glenn Beck is on Fox News.
