bolt the GOP

Glenn Beck Leaves The Republican Party

Al Weaver, The Daily Caller

Conservative radio host Glenn Beck announced on his radio show Wednesday morning that he has officially left the Republican Party. Beck, whose program appears on, said the GOP lost him when they said “they were going to stand against Obamacare and illegal immigration” and didn't keep their word.

Glenn Beck: I’m out of the Republican Party

Allah Pundit, Hot Air

How do you keep a party together when the leadership disdains its own base and their priorities and the base knows that and disdains them right back? Is there anything holding it together at this point beyond the simple math involved in coalition-building? GOP minus tea partiers equals President Hillary, right?

Why We Think Glenn Beck Is Wrong To Bolt The GOP

We appreciate Glenn Beck’s frustration, but if you want to change what’s going on in America today the battle is inside the Republican Party, not between the GOP and some yet-to-be-created third party. And if you want to win that battle don’t leave the Republican Party, change the Republican Party by running for precinct committeeman, county chairman or for the Republican nomination for office against a big government incumbent before you consider bolting the GOP.
