Beck's website thinks he invented the visual aid

From the September 30 edition of MSNBC's Countdown:

Glenn Beck is obsessed with his chalkboard. Glenn Beck's new website is obsessed with Glenn Beck. Put those together, and the results are ugly.

Today, the White House debuted "White House White Board," a video series in which "one of our key players on the White House team will cut through the political back-and-forth you hear every day and break down an issue affecting American families into simple, understandable terms." In the web video, economic adviser Austan Goolsbee explains how President Obama's proposed tax plan differs from that of the Republican Party:

Seems pretty basic, right? The White House is trying out visual aids in order to better get their message out.

But if you work for Glenn Beck's vanity site, it's a case of President Obama "watching Fox News at 5pm and taking notes," then engaging in "chalkboard theft" with Goolsbee "trying to do his best Glenn Beck impersonation." Oh, and of course, the site deems Obama's unwillingness to continue massive tax cuts for the wealthiest "Marxist." Though I suppose it just wouldn't be a Glenn Beck chalkboard without Marxism being involved somehow.

Heaven help the president should he start needing to wear glasses.
