Glenn Beck On Executive Orders: Lies, Ignorance or Deception....?

On Feb. 16, 2009 Glenn Beck told his audience to standdown and allow a “power grab” by the Executive Branch to happen “out in the open”.
What? Liar… you say?
I just read on another “Big” blog where someone called Glenn Beck a “Liar” (if you can imagine that) and the commenter was pummeled for saying it. Adding my response I said, “People don’t like to be called ‘liars’, so let’s just say Beck is a great ‘deceiver’ instead.”
During the smearing of Medina and the defining of “truthers” week, there was an overlooked, brief segment responding to the Feb. 13, 2009 NYTimes.com article which included:
“We are reviewing a list of presidential executive orders and directives to get the job done across a front of issues,” said Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff.
That doesn’t sound good… does it?
No and no doubt many Beck followers felt the same way.Which might be why he spent a few minutes easing the fears of his viewers. A teaching moment for Beck to enlighten us on Executive Orders.
In the process of “educating”, does he raise your level of concern or lower it? If you answer by saying neither, then we can say he did not “raise” concern.
Watch the clip and then take a minute to check the facts...
