It’s only welfare if someone else receives it

On Glenn Beck’s show on Fox News, actor Craig T. Nelson (Coach) declares that he isn’t going to pay taxes anymore, because he doesn’t like what the government is doing with his money. He rants that no one takes responsibility anymore. He then drops a stunningly hypocritical line:

I’ve been on food stamps and welfare, did anybody help me out? No. No.

What does he think welfare and food stamps are? Beck doesn’t seem to notice.

You can watch him say it on the video (at time 2:37):

    This reminds me of one of my favorite political quotes:

    “Congressman, don’t let the government get their hands on my Medicare,” a Republican voter pleading with their Representative at a campaign stop.

    You have to laugh at the irony. Either that, or cry.
