Watch: Glenn Beck Tells Teabaggers He Didn't Want His Job Anyway, But He'll Find Them to Continue Revolution


In a speech that sounds half Dr. Evil, and half like a break-up with a girlfriend, Glenn Beck addresses his "transition" out of a regular FOX News program with his teabagger followers.

"I took the job two years ago because I thought I had something important to share. I really thought that if I could prove my case that something wicked this way was coming, something in America was wrong, America would listen. And, they have. I'm surprised at both the number that have and haven't even with all of the facts....When I took this job I didn't take it because it was going to be a career for me. Paul Revere did not get up on the horse and say 'Hwaa I'm gonna do this for the rest of my life!' He didn't do it. He got off the horse at some point and fought in the revolution..."

  3. Who cares? Did any one not see this guys burn out happening?

    It is all about the money. Advertisers did not want to be involved with his kind of controversy.
