Conservative radio host Glenn Beck responded with stunned disbelief on Wednesday to the news that seven million people had signed up for the Affordable Care Act, accusing the press of covering for President Barack Obama, Right Wing Watch reported.
“The emperor has no clothes,” Beck said. “And everyone in the press, you rat b*stards. Every single one of you know what he’s saying isn’t true. You know it. You know it.”
Obama said on Tuesday that the law, commonly known as “Obamacare,” is “here to stay,” while both health industry leaders and Republican lawmakers called for a deeper analysis of the enrollment figures.
“He’s a sociopath,” Beck said of Obama. “He’s sociopathic. He doesn’t care anymore. I’m telling you, you put this guy in a uniform — that he himself designed, because he would be the greatest uniform designer ever, because nobody else could design a uniform like he could — you put this guy in a self-designed uniform, and he goes on for four hours talking.”
Right Wing Watch also reported that Beck vowed, “I’m not going to waste my life,” before angrily reciting a portion of the Bill of Rights.
“I have a right to pursue my happiness,” he raged. “I have a right to do what I was born to do.”
Beck did not specify how people signing up for health insurance infringed on his personal rights.
