Glenn Beck: Santorum May Be the Next George Washington

Other than the military experience, charisma and obvious leadership skills, uh, sure. I guess.

Without endorsing former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., popular coservative talk show host Glenn Beck praised the Republican candidate as the most trustworthy in the presidential field, even suggesting that Santorum “is the next George Washington.”

“I don’t endorse candidates,” Beck said today during an interview with Santorum, but “if there is one guy out there that is the next George Washington, the only guy that I could think of is Rick Santorum. I would ask that you would take a look at him,” he added.

“I don’t trust any of them, but if I had to trust the reins of power with one person that is currently in this field and, because I think the next president has got to be Abraham Lincoln,” Beck also said, noting that the next president “has got to be somebody who knows exactly who he is, knows exactly where he stands and is willing to, in the end, turn those reins of power back over.”

I don’t know. Santorum last turned over the reins of power because he was blown out in a statewide election. And as president, the Constitution would force his hand.
