    Where is your outrage to Glen Beck claiming to be a recovering alcoholic member of AA and that he's an official spokesman for AA?

    He made those statements a number of years ago which got me curious as to his claim. Turns out the only official spokesman for A.A. are those members of A.A.'s board of trustees who are non-alcoholic. Turns out their board consists of alcoholics and non alcoholics.

    If he's going to lie about an organization he claims to be grateful for helping save his life----what won't he stoop to.

    BTW---where is the outrage from black GOP politicians about the alleged rape that Glenn is spouting off about.

    "so you're saying that the rape did or did not happen?"

    I'm simply going by the link the OP posted in which the the word 'alleged' was used in regard to claims of her being raped. That physical exam of her supported the claim. But since it hasn't gone thru court system yet it is still 'alleged' to have occurred.

    Personally, I don't know whether a rape occurred or not---I wasn't there. But based on the age of the girl(13), physical exam of the girl that supports that a rape did occur....I tend to believe the girl was raped.

    One thing the OP neglected to mention is that the two people arrested in regard to the incident happen to be Hispanic. With OP's going off on Obama and Sharpton and his sarcastic tone in mentioning Obama and Sharpton it appears the OP may subtly been trying to infer the rapists to be blacks, and the victim white.

    Simply put......Wouldn't it be far more appropriate for the OP and Glenn Beck to be outraged that Hispanic politicians haven't gone ballistic about the alleged rape.....Especially prominent Hispanic politicians of Texas(state in which the alleged rape occurred)---such as Ted Cruz R as well as other Reps and Dems who are Hispanic.


    Shame on OP for not mentioning that the two people arrested are Hispanic and insinuating thru his sarcasm directed at Obama/Sharpton that alleged rapists in this case are black(which at this point simply is not accurate-the arrests were of Hispanics not blacks)

    The crime is, indeed, horrific. But the idea that "Oh, boy! I can use this to criticize Obama" is pretty damned sad, too.

    You mean it's not fair to say that a Hispanic is Black, but it is fair to say a Hispanic is White? Wow, I did not know that. Obama, Sharpton, Holder, et al had no problems with stating Zimmerman was white whne he was Hispanic, so why can't Beck, et all state the guys arrested here were Black, even though they are Hispanic. If one political party can lie about the race of a defendant and not be condemned by that same party, then why is it not okay for the other party to do the same thing?

    Realize that I am being sarcastic here and pointing out hypocrisy, not agreeing that it was right.

    I agree, we have plenty of other crap we can blame barry for. He should not have commented on TM/GZ and he should keep his mouth shut here as well.

    The criticism of Obama (valid) is that He comments (as someone else said) when he shouldn't but does so when he attempts to further his agenda. In this case the "blacks are victims" agenda.

    let's see

    the incident involved Hispanic males in Texas being arrested for gang raping a young girl.

    Seems Glenn Beck(and OP) are really reaching in trying to link this matter to Obama and Sharpton.

    But then again what can be expected of Glenn Beck and those who think he's got a full or even half deck.

    This is a thread about AA! Pretty clear that the OP, along with everyone else, was off topic.

    No, it's more deflection and projection.
