Glenn Beck: Cruz’s Iowa Win Is First Time I’ve Felt ‘True Victory’ Since Reagan

Hours after Republican presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz’s (Texas) victory in Iowa caucuses, Glenn Beck said Tuesday morning that Monday night was the first time since President Ronald Reagan took office in 1981 that he felt “true victory.”

“This is the first time since, really, Ronald Reagan that I have felt real, true victory. And I say this in this way:  Ronald Reagan, I loved. I adored. I wanted him,” Beck said on The Glenn Beck Radio Program.

Beck, who has endorsed Cruz for president, went on to compare Cruz to Reagan, saying the former president was someone he “believed in.”

Though the radio show host said he supported both President George H.W. Bush and President George W. Bush, he expressed contrast between the two Bushes and Reagan, saying he was more so “against something” when it came to the Bushes.

“George H.W. Bush, I’m sure I celebrated because it was against Clinton — or, I mean I would have celebrated because it was against Clinton — but it was against something,” Beck said. “Same thing with George W. Bush. I wasn’t really for George W. Bush, I was against something.”

It is important to note, Cruz is the first candidate Beck has ever endorsed during his career in the media.
