Beck: 'Birther' Argument a Distraction ... and Pres. Obama Loves It

GLENN BECK, HOST: Welcome to "The Glenn Beck Program."
We have a lot to talk about tonight. This is one that I want you to share with your friends.
America right now seems to be talking about a couple of things. Donald Trump, who is trying to find a president's birth certificate with a metal detector or whatever. And that the president didn't recognize Easter. He celebrates Passover and Ramadan. But, apparently, neither fully recognized. And neither did Google, you know?
But they did recognize this one. This is -- this is -- this is great. And then they followed up with celebrating renowned French-American ornithologist John James Audubon. This was today. Oooh! Wow!
I think there was a holiday in between those things there at Google, but, you know, you may have missed them. I mean, sure, you missed Jesus. But you got the bird guy. So, I mean, obviously, I'd go for it, too, the bird guy.
Look, here's the point. This is all a distraction. I mean, the president loves the birth certificate, loves the birth certificate argument. Loves it. It's a poke in the eye and it just makes people look ridiculous. It really does.
And Easter? It stops us from talking about what's really happening. If we're arguing he didn't issue an Easter message. Really? Then we don't focus on what's really happening.
Look at the things that are happening not far away on the other side of the world, but on our own border, in our own bank accounts. What freedom is Cass Sunstein regulating out of your life today?
Fortunately, for us, we meet here every day at 5 o'clock. Unfortunately, for those in the White House, we meet here every day at 5:00. We won't be distracted by the nonsense because there's a lot to discuss.

Beck is right. We need to point at the things that effect all Americans. Things like gas prices and the Obama admins. lack of effort in bringing those prices down. There are the three wars we are in and the high unemployment. There is the growing poor and the higher food prices. Union unrest and banks that are still too big to fail. GM is still in need of government assistance. Any Republican has a plethera of bungled policies to run against. Lets start looking closer at who is getting rich off of the Obama policies.
