Self-described libertarian pundit Bill Maher ripped Barak Obama during a lengthy monologue on his HBO program Friday night, accusing the president of being obsessed with appearing on TV and failing to come through on pre-election promises.

"This is not what I voted for," Maher said. “I don’t want my president to be a TV star.”

Maher criticized Obama's constant television coverage ("I get it: you love being on TV") and said the president should focus on fixing the nation's problems instead.

"You don't have to be on television every minute of every day –– you're the president, not a rerun of 'Law & Order,'" Maher said. “TV stars are too worried bout being popular and too concerned about being renewed."

Maher continued: "You're skinny and in a hurry and in love with a nice lady –– but so is Lindsay Lohan. And just like Lindsay, we see your name in the paper a lot but we're kind of wondering when you’re actually going to do something.”

Maher added that Obama's presidential rival John McCain was right to say Obama acted like a celebrity and, amazingly for Maher, the comedian suggested Obama needs to act more like his predecessor.

“I never thought I’d say this, what [Obama] needs in his personality is a little George Bush.”



Maher's probably one of the top 10 leftist talking heads, but he's going after Obama for being of little substance. Now, my opinion is that the less Obama does the better off we'll all be, but it's nice to see the libs' heads explode.

They were mostly from the Radley Balko "free pot uber alles" wing of the party, but they voted for him.

Maybe he's doing it for the ratings, maybe he's genuinely pissed.

The fact is, I don't want any of Obama's policies in place.

Maher told Keith "Obama felater" Olberman that he expected the president to do something about health care and energy policies...I think Obongo should leave both alone. Ultimately, I'd prefer Obama didn't get anythign passed, but it was amusing to hear complete astonishment in the newscasters' voices this morning (how dare one of our own criticize the annointed one!).


ETA: For real LOLs read some of the comments on the Huffington Post's article. Lots of confusion and justification going on.

You know what I've noticed? Nobody panics when things go "according to plan." Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan." But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!

Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It's fair!

Don't get too excited folks... read what he is actually saying.

In effect, he's calling Obama out for not pushing the Leftist agenda hard or fast enough.

Maher is, was, and always will be pond scum... never forget that.

You're absolutely correct on all counts.


There's a fair amount of comedic value in this, if only to watch the liberals heads spin.

A lot of the Ron Paul crowd (especially the hippy, druggie, 9-11 truther, anti-war, America-hating ones) sure didn't vote for McCain.


Do you have anything besides anecdotal evidence to support this? Besides, most libertarians are not truthers, are not hippies and are not drug users and don't hate America.

Mahr likes to label himself as a "Libertarian" because of his social liberal views, and conveniently ignoring the free market, minimal government, lack of gun control, and other aspects of Libertaianisim.

So I guess you could say he's a "cafeteria Libertarian", although you could say that about most anybody who has one particular set of freedoms they like, and a bunch of others that they're uncomfortable with, or are opposed to outright.

Exactly. Its nice to see Obama's image take a hit, but not because he's not liberal enough.


And how in the motherfuck is that slimy piece of shit a Libertarian?

As difficult as this may be:

These are not real libertarians. Anyone that supports socialism, fascism, is not a libertarian. Real libertarians usually work within the GOP/republicans, until shitted upon. Ron Paul and his crowd are mismatched, IE good and bad just like the republicans now and then. Socialists and fascists(or both), then and now. Even if they voted for Obama, who cares, it was that individuals right to vote as that individual saw fit.

Pretty sure that was a misunderstanding of wordage. Just because the root word is in there, there is NO connection between the two.

I almost puked after seeing that they thought Bill was a libertarian.

I know people who voted for Obama who classify themselves as "libertarians" they are also truthers. They also believe in nationalized healthcare, cap and trade, support the stimulus bill and think all banks should be run by the government. They are pro-drugs, guns and gay rights..

In other words they are pro-gay/prodrug gun toting socialists.

I only wish Obama was doing as little as Maher apparently thinks he is. From where I sits it looks as if Obama has tunred the march tp socialism into a full-speed sprint.
