Beck to NRA on Obama's 'Yes We Can': 'What a Bunch of Crap That Is


In a speech to the National Rifle Association's annual convention Saturday, Glenn Beck excoriated President Barack Obama for his 2008 campaign slogan, calling it meaningless and "a bunch of crap."

"Barack Obama's winning slogan was 'Yes we can.' That's the dumbest damn slogan I've ever heard," Beck said. "Don't tell me what you can do. Will you do it? Will you do it? 'Yes we can.' What a bunch of crap that is."

Moving to a chalk board on the stage, he wrote the words "Yes I will."

"Yes I will," Beck said. "Are you going to vote? 'Yeah I could do that.' Are you going to vote? 'Yes I will.'"

"Will you be a man or a woman of honor?" he asked. "'Yes I will.' Will you seek equal justice for all? 'Yes I will.'"

Beck also blasted Rev. Al Sharpton for his front-and-center role in recent weeks regarding the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. George Zimmerman was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder in the Florida teen's death.

"I saw him this week actually patting himself on the back," Beck said of Sharpton. " 'I was the first to say he's guilty and should go to jail.' When did that become something we're proud of? When did that become something we wear as a badge of honor, to say 'I was the first to try a man in the media? I was the first to say oh, that pesky Constitution. The right to a jury trial. I was the first to say guilty before innocent.' That's crazy. The world is absolutely upside-down."
