Bill Maher on Obama's Health Care Speech

Thanks to kavemen for a wonderful compliment, I've decided to turn to Bill Maher for more info on the health care story. Actually, what I like about Maher is that he's extremely critical of the President. Some of the others are very funny in their observations about the right, but Bill Maher really says it like it is. What do you think?


  1. Maher's is funny sometimes ... but he's just giving us the same straw man argument against firing Van Jones as the rest of the lefties. No one cared that Van Jones called Republicans A-holes -- that video made me laugh out loud -- it was because he singed on to a 9/11 "truther" group and claimed the US government was involved in the 9/11 attack. The left is so full of hatred for the last administration that they can't understand why anyone would care about any claims made against them, but the truther's are very offensive.

    I think there are many countries that are envious of our current health care system. Like the people in Canada who come south to America for difficult pregnancies, etc.

    On the other hand, what country will be envious of a healthcare system rewritten in a matter of months into a bill pushed through one committee after another, with one compromise after another to get votes, that ignores issues like Tort reforms that would save taxpayers billions but which the democrats just don't have the cajones to push (a lack of cajones we will all pay for if they pull this off).

    If you've watched politics at all, what would make a sane person think that Congress can effectively recreate 1/6th of the American economy with a single bill in a single year? But I'm afraid sanity has been lacking on the lefty side since Bush was reelected by a popular majority in 2004.

  2. Thanks for the mention; I fell all famous and stuff now.

    The "compliment" was my own personal refference to an old anti who cited "The Onion" as a news source in one of their arguments on the Brady Blog.

    If you are unaware that The Onion is a spoof news show...enjoy.

  3. Did Bill Maher say that Obama was "Christ-like" in that bit?

    Ah yes, he did.

    Do you endorse this view, MikeB?

    Enquiring minds want to know.
