Right-wingers speaking up to defend Obama.
Maher Covering Up.
Or trying to … but it’s getting out anyway. When West tried to speak, they all interrupted and changed the subject multiple times. ‘Secretly’ working with Obama’s publicists, every one.
Bill Maher is a kiss up for Obama I can’t believe he tried to compare Barry O to Mandela! The other 2 morons are full of it. Thank you C West for speaking out!
This video illustrates part of what takes the country further and further right. When Bush did something, the left criticized him publicly, affecting public opinion. When Obama does the same thing and worse, the left defends him.
The idea that we can fix this at the polls by voting in another Democrat or another Republican is borderline insanity. These people just finished saying that both Bush and Obama campaigned one way and governed the opposite of what they campaigned on. (Much as I would love an opportunity to spit in Dimson’s face, I have to say that at least he did not campaign the same way twice. Obama did–and got away with it.)
Also, they people speaking in the video make a distinction between serial drone killing by the government and violating the Constitution. Hello, read the Constitution.
Nowhere does the Constitution say that the limits that the Bill of Rights and the 14th Amendment place on government apply only when an American citizen or an American resident is involved. Besides, drones have been aimed at Americans and drones never question whether the bystanders that they are about to kill are American or not.
As far as Bill Maher chastising Cornell West for being too hard on the President, and his million dollar donation to Obama’s campaign: Maher has revealed himself to be full of double standards (among other things), instead of being full of principles. I give him no respect whatever anymore.
Leftist comedians popular in LBJ’s time excoriated him and the military for the Vietnam “Era,” as they should have. The left is about principles and values, not about personalities or party. The right is about lockstep and united front (think Reagan’s Eleventh Commandment, which even the right breaks more than the left these days).
Bill Maher needs to stop kidding himself.
… Thank you jbade … C.West sees and gets why.
So true….drove him out of office. He truly had lost the country. Seems now no one is paying attention & certainly not speaking up.
The only critics of RW measures are the left. If the left is silent, or worse, rationalizes away everything, the left helps move the country to the right.
