On his Tuesday show, commentator Glenn Beck made the extraordinary prediction that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be elected president in the 2016 election.
According to Beck, that prediction is based upon a conversation a “friend” of his had with so-called “Hillary people” about the strategy she will employ in the 2016 campaign.
“They said, ‘The right is so stupid. They just don’t get it. You guys are going to all be fighting on Benghazi and everything else, and here’s what Hillary is going to do: ‘Do you remember when America was good? Do you remember when we had jobs and we were building towards a brighter future, and things were really happening? Clinton administration — we had it under control. Things were good. They weren’t great but we’re going to do better. We’re going to replant our flag in the traditional things that you understand.’”
Beck also added that Republicans would ill-served in running on a Reagan theme because “nobody remembers Ronald Reagan,” but they remember the Clinton era as the “golden years.” And that is what on which he based his prediction.
“This is what made me say, ‘Oh my gosh — she’s going to win,’” Beck said. “As she said this to me, I’m listening to a conversation between me and my friend, Pat where Pat and I both have said in the past, ‘I would so gladly take Bill Clinton right now. Don’t those years seem simple and good? Uh huh. They sure do.’ It’s morning in America, Clinton-style.’”
Beck said the baggage from the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi would be perceived by voters to be a technicality and the broader theme of “morning in America Clinton-style” will prevail.
