When will Glenn Beck turn on Bachman and Romney?

One of Glenn Beck's big complaints (and lies) is that Barack Obama has surrounded himself with socialists, communists, anti-capitalists, and "revolutionaries".
So what I'd like to know is, if revolutionaries are a bad thing, will Beck be just as vocal with denunciations of self-proclaimed revolutionaries James Inhofe, John McCain, Michelle Bachmann, and Mitt Romney? And if not, will he then admit to being nothing more than a fear-mongering charlatan and a partisan fraud? I think you know the answers.
At a town hall Wednesday night, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) told constituents, "We're almost reaching a revolution in this country."
The reason? "People are not buying these concepts that are completely foreign to America." ...
Inhofe isn't the first to predict a revolution. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told a town hall on Tuesday, "We're seeing the beginning of a peaceful -- and I emphasize peaceful -- revolt in America."
In March, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) called for citizens to be "armed and dangerous" against an energy tax and that "having a revolution every now and then is a good thing."
And in May, former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney said Republicans need to "once again lead the American Revolution."
Here's another interesting Beck tidbit: Orly Taitz, queen of the birthers, she of the lawsuits and the fradulent Kenya birth certificate, watches Glenn Beck and thinks you should too. A stirring endorsement for the man, no?
The good news is that ten more companies have pulled their advertising from Beck, bringing the total to fifty. And these companies aren't nothing - among the newest ten are Bank of America, Travelers Insurance, and Vonage. Many of the ads we know and love/hate - the Travelers J umbrella insurance, the Geico cavemen - are gone from Beck. The question is, when will Beck be gone too?
