Tom Becka is Mad but he has a sense of humor about it. Becka says that ” Sometime you can get more truth out with a joke than you can in an angry tirade.” So while the Mad Middle sounds like he’s angry all the time that’s the furthest thing from the truth.
Tom Becka has been recognized as one of the top radio talk show hosts in the country by various trade and political publications. His frustration with how the far left and far right have hijacked the system has led him to speak out on behalf of the “Mad Middle” He has coined the phrase ” The Mad Middle” to describe his view on politics.
Becka expresses his disappointment in how things are going in government. ” The politicians spend all their time on issues like gay marriage or steroids in baseball when the country is going broke. We are in a war we can’t pay for, gas prices are rising, unemployment is high, and all congress can do is worry about something Rush Limbaugh might have said. The Republicans and Democrats need to stop their posturing and fighting and solve these problems.”
