‘Hit the Road, Barack’: Beck Examines Newsweek’s Provocative But ‘True’ Feature Story

By now, the Internet is abuzz with speculation about Newsweek’s new cover story. For those unfamiliar, historian  Niall Ferguson penned the featured article, titled, “Hit the Road, Barack.” Yes. The same Newsweek that dubbed Rep. Michele Bachmann the “Queen of Rage” and mocked GOP nominee Mitt Romney for being a “wimp” now asserts that President Obama is inept when it comes to economics and that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan’s “path to prosperity is our only hope.”

An opportunity this good does not come along every day. With that in mind, Glenn Beck took to his studio on Monday evening to break down what “hit the road” really means to the now-disenchanted liberal establishment. Fear not — they haven’t had an epiphany, but they aren’t too pleased with the one they believed would bring them “Hope and Change.”
