Sunshine Libertarians

Email Print

Tom Delay was a warmonger and socialist when Bush was in power, and a sorta-libertarian under Clinton. (Now he’s on Dancing With The Stars.) Glenn Beck was among the most commissar-like of the neocons under Bush—he even compared Ron Paul donors to terrorists. Now, under Obama, Beck claims to be a libertarian. But could he be trusted to stand for freedom were Romney, say, Despot 45? Forgive me for having my doubts. (Thanks to Dennis Marburger)

UPDATE: I had forgotten that Beck hosted Comrade David Horowitz on this same show to charge in the best Soviet fashion that LRC is allied to “Islamofascists.”
