Glenn Beck Caught in Whopper of a Lie - Claims He Held the First Inaugural Address - National Archives Says Not Even Close
The snake oil salesman has been caught in a doozy...

Glenn Beck's George Washington Whopper

The Fox host says he held the inaugural address of the famously truthful founding father. Yeah right, says the National Archives.

— By Stephanie Mencimer

Wed Sep. 1, 2010 3:00 AM PDT

During his much-ballyhooed "Restoring Honor" rally on Saturday, Glenn Beck told a whopper involving the founding father who was supposedly unable to tell a lie: George Washington.

Speechifying at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial, the controversial Fox News host highlighted the legacy of the nation's first president to drive home his claim that encouraging honesty and integrity was a main aim of the event. Beck even told attendees that "the next George Washington" was "in this crowd. He may be 8 years old, but this is the moment. This is the moment that he dedicates his life, that he sees giants around him. And 25 years from now, he will come not to this stair, but to those stairs. And he can proclaim, 'I have a new dream.'"

Beck also invoked Washington while describing the inspiring experience of visiting famous tourist destinations around the nation's capital. "I have been going to Mt. Vernon," he explained. Holding out his hands for emphasis, he declared with emotion, "I went to the National Archives, and I held the first inaugural address written in his own hand by George Washington."

Well that didn't take long. Beck has a tragically flawed character. No doubt he is lying about the rest too.

I thought it was Lincoln that couldn't tell a lie. Damn honest politicians...
But if at the Church they would give us some ale,
And a pleasant fire our souls to regale,
We'd sing and we'd pray all the live-long day,
And never once wish from the Church to stray.

Lemme guess, you guys are stuck in the Continental Congress which predates the United States of America and had a black man(hanson was it?) as the first president?

Boy, they've really got him now!

Bet no one ever hears another word of this Beck person ever again.

Maybe he should use a TOTUS like Barry. Then he could be totally robotic but he might not leave out a word or two every now and then.

And if these people really want to know what he meant, why don't they just ask him?

No, wouldn't want to do THAT now would we?

One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Beck did receive a special VIP tour of the archives, arranged by an as-yet unidentified member of Congress. During that tour, he did get a peek inside the "legislative vault," which isn't open to ordinary visitors. But Archives spokeswoman Susan Cooper insists that Beck didn't lay a finger on any precious documents, much less George Washington’s inaugural address. That would be a major violation of policy. "Those kinds of treasures are only handled by specially trained archival staff," she explains. Cooper acknowledges that someone at the archives did show the document to Beck, but that was the extent of it. Regarding Beck's claim that he held the document, Cooper says that seeing such documents for the first time can be a very emotional experience. "I'm certain it was a figure of speech," she says.

She (and whoever let Beck in) are soooo busted...

This is all CYA (and poorly done at that)!

Not that I watched the event, which I didn't, but did he claim with exacting and specific wording that it was the ORIGINAL document? If he claimed he had the speech in his hand and it was a copy, he was accurate.

Whatever.

Is this all you've got?

No, they gave him a V.I.P tour right before the rally, as I understand, and they brought him into the vault where that stuff is and showed it to him, but he would or should not have been allowed to touch it.

If only claiming to actually hold a document in his hand was the biggest lie to come out of Washington, DC, we would all be jumping for joy.

Big deal....maybe he meant to say he wanted to hold it. Whatever.
