Conservative radio host Mark Levin slammed Glenn Beck in a Facebook message about why he didn't attend CPAC.
"I have no idea what philosophy Glenn Beck is promoting," Levin wrote. "And neither does he. It's incoherent. One day it's populist, the next it's libertarian bordering on anarchy, next it's conservative but not really, etc. And to what end? I believe he has announced that he is no longer going to endorse candidates because our problems are bigger than politics. Well, of course, our problems are not easily dissected into categories, but to reject politics is to reject the manner in which we try to organize ourselves. This is as old as Plato and Aristotle."
Levin added that while Beck claims to be the only radio host to have criticized George Bush's spending, that is not the case.
"Finally, Beck is fond of congratulating himself for being the only or the first host to criticize George Bush's spending," he wrote. "This is demonstrably false. I not only attacked his spending, but the creation of the Homeland Security Department, the prescription drug add-on for Medicare, his 'moderate' tax cuts, as well as his nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, "comprehensive immigration reform," and so forth. And I was not alone -- Rush and Sean did the same, for example. And as someone who fought liberal Republicans in the trenches when campaigning for Reagan in 1976 and 1980, I don't need lectures from Beck, who was nowhere to be found, about big-spending Republicans."
Levin did have one nice thing to say about the Fox News host:
On as a positive note, I am personally happy to see that Beck has cleaned up his public act -- as best I can tell, no more boiling fake frogs on TV or pretending to pour gasoline on someone -- and the rest of it.
