Beck joins us now from his lavish New York City studios -- He is of course the author of the big new best seller being at George Washington.
A progressive really.
Yes he says the best president of the most effective president.
Of the twentieth century every conservative would say.
That's Ronald Reagan he says it's FDR fourteen different times we have him on tape saying it and explaining.
Because he's a progressive in the good times and he knows how to get things done in the bad times.
He was on my program question him extensively about Teddy Roosevelt he loves Teddy Roosevelt Roosevelt started the progressive party.
He says when it comes to.
When it comes to foreign policy he is positively.
Will Sony and Woodrow will.
How do you Woodrow Wilson that's not good this is -- is a back.
There's -- Teddy Roosevelt's progressive -- -- -- lot different than a progressive party today yes it does not know it's not not yet it is the other side in the -- Barack Obama know this if you look at Roosevelt Teddy Roosevelt bill -- I'm not gonna argue where are you about a -- say you're a really -- generally aren't you listening about the progressive party we have a -- disagreement I believe that Teddy Roosevelt's progressive vision.
Far different than it is today but people can read it make it research back you know that's what can I write about -- did your wife about Washington -- right all right so two year rule.
The image that Newt Gingrich has among many.
As they ardent conservatives the small government guy wants to get everybody out of our way that is a phony image that's not the real -- Did this not just me that's the national review coming out and saying that today -- saying.
He needs them he was thrown out of competent Chris by conservatives.
He is he has all of the baggage.
But he doesn't he doesn't actually do any of that he doesn't believe that he believes he said to me on on -- -- That he believes you know he -- he doesn't believe in picking winners and losers but you know what you gotta do -- got to do.
And the government.
You know should get into.
Eco stuff with that with the Green movement.
That's crazy bill it's crazy -- say he never said his stuff to be basically puts himself out on the factor.
As someone who wants much smaller government who would cut taxes.
Who would it -- a lot of the regulations the Obama administration he isn't on regulation guy he voted for -- -- grab for the Department of Education.
He is not small government guy -- Back then the Department of Education wasn't what it is now okay you know.
If you don't have the foresight to see what -- worse.
It exactly right it's the same beef I had with Mitt Romney were -- Romney said to me look -- what I bought what I brought in with rob me -- -- who do you think you are king.
Of course it's gonna mutate that's what happens to government that's what they do they expanded -- out for you -- if you're an Iowa caucus go war.
-- you had to cast a ballot who would you vote for.
I'd be between now I'm Rick Santorum and Michelle Bachmann but in the end if I had to pull between the two of them it would be for Michelle Bachmann but it would be a tough choice okay so you are you with the congresswoman you're not wouldn't Ron Paul.
And and it looks like Paul has taken some of Gingrich's support because the it.
That not the attacks I don't I don't consider your critique on Gingrich and attack cannot attacking him personally.
-- in my life since I know men yeah I know I and I know.
He's he's always been very nice to me we had exactly and I'm happy how this -- on radio he was fine we -- we have disagreements I I think he would be.
An awful present okay but but data.
-- in your opinion the opinion of all other conservatives don't like him for a variety of reasons.
Has taken its toll -- you saw the Rasmussen poll today.
Hasn't Romney now leading with no gain Romney supports stays the same as it Gingrich's come down and Paulo's round up.
-- Michelle Bachmann she ran into trouble.
You know some misstatements of fact.
Her a view wind gaze was pretty harsh that they could be changed in and all of that.
She went to a lot of social problems because as you remember she a lot of momentum after the first debate and then -- Perry got and it all went away.
Do you think that the congresswoman has made any mistakes.
That should be correct.
Why didn't win over the hill who hasn't made mistakes.
I think she may know I I can't -- I think she probably has.
Look I know that Michelle is not a is not somebody who's going to.
Regulate how we live our lives he want to live your life anyway you wanna live your life.
You get the government out of.
But they all -- out of -- there's every single with the exception possibly of Huntsman.
Every -- and the public Gingrich and dissect not he'd say no I'm not on I'm just -- he's gonna shrink government built did you listen -- -- radio programming note you listen he's saying now he's gonna shrink government.
Cut taxes goal for a ballot he was on my radio show my -- rules go.
Two weeks ago he believes -- easily expand government are you -- -- -- Ali didn't.

You are interpreting that back come on you know that.

He's talking I guess I'll get -- -- I said if I said you are you are you telling me.
That you are a Teddy Roosevelt -- said.
You know the things that -- Teddy Roosevelt did when he first got into office those things have to be done and he specifically talked about it and they would that -- -- I think those monopolies or go wild back then they had to -- since this only have I only have 45 seconds yeah.
