GLENN BECK: This is ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. I issued a challenge to the Tea Party member.
JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: What’s the challenge?
BECK: The challenge is this, you read his record. You read his words.
BECK: Gingrich. Not just the happy parts like you read about Theodore Roosevelt. Look into his records. See what he believes. This man is a progressive. He knows he’s a progressive. He doesn’t have a problem with being a progressive. So, if you got a big government progressive or a big government progressive in Obama, one in Newt Gingrich, one in Obama, ask yourself this, Tea Party, is it about Obama’s race?
Because that’s what it appears to me. If you’re against him but you’re for this guy, it must be about race.
NAPOLITANO: It must be about race.
BECK: I mean, what else is it?
