I agree with this comment. The rebuttal (by whichever party is out of office at the moment) seems gratuitous; and it is invariably self-serving, rather than its being a careful and thoughtful analysis of the president's remarks.

As for the main topic of the thread, however, I very much like Glenn Beck. (We are not identical in our political philosophies--I think it would be fair to describe him as a libertarian, whereas I am more of a right-wing populist, with undertones of several other varieties of conservatism--but I most often agree with him. And I certainly respect him.)
