    "I have been going to Mt. Vernon," Beck explained. Holding out his hands for emphasis, he declared with emotion, "I went to the National Archives, and I held the first inaugural address written in his own hand by George Washington."

    National Archives spokeswoman Susan Cooper insists that Beck didn't lay a finger on any precious documents, much less George Washington’s inaugural address. That would be a major violation of policy," she adds.

    "Those kinds of treasures are only handled by specially trained archival staff," Cooper said. "I'm certain it was a figure of speech," she says.

    :lol: This must have been before he pledged to go 40 days without lying.

    Thank the Lord that he didn't get his grubby fingers on a national treasure.

    Nice to see yet another thread on the same topic. But I'm sure Bfgrn's thoughts are far more valid than anyone else's and therefore warrant their own unique thread.

    Oh wait.... no, there are no 'thoughts' in the OP.... it is yet another regurgitation of a whine - from a left leaning website. Well, color me shocked.

    no. beck said you shouldn't take what he says as your only source of truth, but to learn and study history on your own. nice twist of words though.

    Odd... It sort of reminds me of going to church and hearing the preacher start a story off by saying "There was a man who....." How come they never give a name with those stories? Like, Mr. Johnson went to a bar one day and .... This must be something said just to draw the listeners attention to what is about to be said. Same with Beck's speech I suppose. Makes me wonder just a little. The other thing I wonder about is if this is in deed an out and out lie, so be it BUT how come nobody ever has much to say about Obama's obvious lies? Guess it's ok for him to lie and nobody else. There's a big difference in Obama and Beck. One is an entertainer of sorts and the other just keeps us entertained.
