    Glenn Beck wants 56 members of Congress to volunteer to expose corrupt members of their own party. He says that they will remain anonymous and it doesn't matter whether Democrat, Republican or whatever. He's calling them re-founders. He already has two.

    He's obviously trying to scare members of congress straight.

    Once he starts reporting, on nation wide tv, on individual corrupt politicians, I think all hell will break loose.

    Interesting. I like the concept but fear there could be accusations born from simple animosity.

    While I no longer watch Beck (I only watched him when he was on HLN), and never listened to him, I think his heart is in the right place. But, from what I've heard and read lately, he may need to take a step back and breath deep. He may be ready to jump the tracks.

    I don't think so. I believe he is having the time of his life.

    I've been around a long time and experienced some interesting times in politics, but nothing like the current political spectrum.

    I hope Beck continues. He has already accomplished a great deal.

    You may be right. As I said, since his jump to Fox, I have not watched him and know only what I hear and read. I do know he was instrumental in the Van Jones resignation, and I hear he has been at the forefront of the recent ACORN undercover video sting, so it sounds like he's doing some good work. I just hope he doesn't go too far. You know what they say about good intentions and the road to Hell.

    Beck has 5.

    He has not reported anything, that I am aware of, as a direct reult from information recieved from these re-founders.

    Sounds an awful lot like Joe McCarthy

    The "I have a list of existing communists from a source I will not name..." And yes, all hell will break lose as Beck engages in a witch hunt based on unsupported allegations

    Nobody really cares. How many people watch or listen to Beck? What percentage of people who vote will care? What media outlets will carry his...news?


    yawn.....

    Ya, you're right. Beck has no audience among liberals, and really, who else ie there?

    He was instrumental in bringing down Van Jones and focused a spotlight on Acorn. I will admit that who tends to see conspiracy in some areas that seem unlikely to me.

    If his re-founder plan works as I expect, it should scare the hell out of corrupt politicians.

    how many people watch cable television compared to how many people vote?

    your critical thinking skill set is in need of an overhaul. Beck is not loved by conservatives either. The fringe likes him. He is an entertainer who has little influence.
