Glenn Beck signs off, says his show became a national movement

On Friday, Glenn Beck began his final show on Fox News where he’ll be for the foreseeable future – outside the building, and not on TV.

“We’ve done some amazing things together,” Beck, flanked by at least one bodyguard, told viewers as he showed them the view of the set from the street, noting the bulletproof glass windows that were installed “for a myriad of reasons.”

His program is being replaced by “The Five” — a roundtable discussion at 5 p.m. featuring five participants daily.

Beck is a great asset to this nation. On his show he was correct 99 percent of the time. I enjoyed listening to his show. Good luck on your next program.

Excerpts of it were too much for me. Too much yelling and emotion, more like a national comic strip.

I hardly find this nation’s current perplexities and possible total financial and moral collapse “too emotional” or comical. Perhaps you should go back to your hen house and quit laying eggs altogether. YOU are the funny one.

I urge those who find Beck instructive to get out more and read a lot wider.

Beck does get carried away at times and his show was informative and I stopped watching him for one reason. He wore a Purple Heart that he said was given by Geo. Washington to one of his men. For this reason, and in Glen’s own words, don’t take credit for something you didn’t earn. By wearing this treasured award he disrespects the award itself and all those that actually earned it (Stolen Valor Act of 2005). This in my mind is the same as Obama taking a photo op with a flag drapped coffin of a dead soldier who by the way won the PURPLE HEART the hard but honorable way.
