Newsweek: “President Obama Would Make Pretty Damn Good Ex-President”

Newsweek magazine’s Nick Summers and McKay Coppins say “President Obama would make a pretty damn good ex-president,” monetarily speaking.

Newsweek: “At the risk of getting ahead of ourselves: Barack Obama would make a pretty damn good ex-president. We’re not saying he should become an ex-president after just four years in office — only that this line of thinking isn’t premature. With the economy uncertain and ever more Americans occupying Main Street, the latest polls show Obama has about a coin flip’s chance of winning another term in office — or of being plunged, just 13 months from now, into the most exclusive retirement club on earth.”

“So it’s worth considering: what would his next act look like? If defeated, Obama would become, at 51, the youngest former president in more than a century. (Only Teddy Roosevelt was younger: he was 50 when he left office in 1909.) With strong health and an agile mind — and no shortage of ways to make staggering sums of money — Obama would have the time and skills to mount one of the most impressive ex-presidencies on record.”

Glenn Beck Says "John McCain Would Have Been Far Worse for the Country than Obama"

Watch CBS Videos Online

Well this is a first. Right wing nutjob Glenn Beck made a startling admission in an interview with Katie Couric to air on Tuesday evening. He said, “I think John McCain would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama,” Beck told Couric in the debut episode of her new web show, @katiecouric.

Beck’s revelation came in response to Couric’s question about Hillary Clinton, who Beck said he may have even voted for had she been the Democratic nominee against John McCain. What? Quick, someone call the paramedics. The man is delirious.

“I can’t believe I’m saying this,” Beck said, “I think I would have much preferred [Hillary Clinton] as president and may have voted for her against John McCain.” He went on to describe McCain as “this weird progressive like Theodore Roosevelt was.”

So, is Glenn Beck an undercover Democrat? I am sure the Democrats are saying that’s okay. Rethuglicans can keep him. The full interview airs at Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.
