Bill Maher on the death of liberals! Must listen!

Maher has a great way explaining things and what he has to say about Democrats and their crazy behavior right now.

1. Maher is a comedian and a libertarian

He can make all the flippant irresponsible remarks he wants because it is all for laughs and ratings.

Other Democratic cause?

He sounded pretty serious to me,.

11. His trademark bombastic take-no-prisoners style makes him a poor choice for self-appointed referee

and the tone of Democratic primaries so far is tame compared to priors. For example this time around no one has tried to distort the other's religion while blaming the other campaign for the effect of the smear:

Maggie Williams, campaign manager for Clinton, played down the significance of the picture. "If Barack Obama's campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed. Hillary Clinton has worn the traditional clothing of countries she has visited and had those photos published widely."

6. I agree that he had been anamed association regarding Muslims

In the middle east but how does that negate what he said. Plus he have a million bucks to either Obama or some other Democratic cause

7. Boiled down, what he said is just another "loyalty pledge" thing.

 

He is a hypocrite. A rich hypocrite, to be sure, but hypocritical all the same. His money insulates him from the consequences of a Third Way presidency, and he has more to lose from a Trump presidency. He stokes up anti-Christian and anti-Muslim sentiments with glee. Doing what he says because he has a lot of money is pretty much what I am against.

In any event, I believe we will all decide for ourselves who to support, who to vote for. I don't really care who endorses either politician, I am just looking at issues, words, deeds, records and truthfulness. My choice is clear.

8. Bernie or bust is horrible

as is Hillary or bust.. But getting our guy nominated is a dirty business in a party that's been shaped by an out of touch hierarchy within. They've been writing the rules for a long time and their way isn't working. In case anyone hasn't noticed, Democrats have lost a lot of ground since 2008.. there's a reason for that.
