While Glenn Beck was on FOX's "The O'Reilly Factor," he had some criticism for the Republican presidential candidates. Beck starting by "shushing" Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) and said he sounded like Osama Bin Laden.
“Ron Paul needs to shhhhhh on foreign policy,” Beck said. “You sound a little like Osama Bin Laden at times.”
Wait a minute. Glenn Beck said Rep. Paul sounds like Osama Bin Laden? How does Beck justify that comparison? The following discussion on Ron Paul's foreign policy between Glenn Beck and his radio co-hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere might clear things up a bit (via GBTV):
“It’s not America’s fault," Beck said to O'Reilly, "and I don’t think Ron Paul gets that.”
“And he never will,” O’Reilly agreed.
After the Paul criticism, Beck and O’Reilly went through the list of the other GOP candidates and offered their critiques.
Beck said that while former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is the “the best at a debate,” he is also a “big government progressive.” Beck also slammed Gingrich for quoting Andrew Jackson during Monday’s debate.
“This guy has quoted and loved every President I think is despicable!” Beck said.
However, despite what Beck thinks about Gingrich's shortcomings, he believes that the former Speaker is “right on the Middle East.”
And as for the current frontrunner and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, Beck has this to say: “Mitt Romney scares me because I don’t think he sees the Fed as a problem.”
