    He "sticks it" to conservatives and Republicans, so then all of the sudden he is sooo funny and correct to his followers.: simple.

    Exactly. Hence my comment about dumbing down the national discourse. He's one of those people who has taught liberals that "Conservative = Crazy" when in fact extremism on either "side" is "crazy". We should spend less time choosing two sides of the same coin and more time looking at issues on an individual basis.

    Bill Maher gives Obama a free pass on the same things he couldn't stand with G.W. Bush. When we spend so much time nonsensically siding with someone we believe speaks for us, we allow all kinds of atrocities to occur. Look at what the Germans sanctioned due to blindly following their charismatic leader in the 1930s. Today's economic climate is getting closer to that each day. I fear what happens when people blindly give Obama a free pass for his second term instead of being critical now, while they still have the chance.

    First they came for the communists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

    Then they came for the socialists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    Then they came for me,
    and there was no one left to speak for me.

    "You guys" who? We were having a conversation about Bill Maher and suddenly we're off to comparisons between Hitler and Obama??? Not only is it absurd, it's incredibly insulting.

    You guys = Americans.

    I don't see how a comparison of mass behavior is insulting to anyone, except for people who engage in that behavior.

    Seriously? You just lumped all Americans together and threw Hitler in for good measure and you don't see how that is insulting?

    One politician is better than the other if we're talking politcians now, One doesn't do shit and the other is a True leader.

    As far as maher he seems to act like a hypocrite he slammed Bush but gives Obama a pass merely in a biased view.

    I mean as a nation-state. I should have been clearer with how I wrote the comment as I know there are many Americans who disagree with the imperialist direction America is on.

    It does, however, concern me that a lot of people who should be anti-war are giving Obama a free pass because they see the right vs. left distraction as a legitimate debate and they don't want to be on the republican "side".
