*Bill Maher is at it again with his public disappointment on President Obama. Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” he expressed his frustration saying he has been too timid in pursuing the Democratic agenda.
“I thought, when we elected the first black president, as a comedian, I thought two years in, I’d be making jokes about what a gangsta he was, you know?” Maher said. Instead, Maher said we’ve got “President Wayne Brady.”
“For him to be talking about compromising with the Republicans on the Bush tax cuts, where — where are they going to draw a line in the sand? When are they going to remember who they are?”
“I’m so disappointed,” Maher said. “And I still like him and still think there’s hope he could get it yet, but I’m so disappointed that he just seems to be another in a long line of Democrats that come across as wimpy and wussy … and of not standing up for what they believe in enough.”
Earlier this year, in May, Maher infuriated some blacks when he stated how a “real black president” should have handled the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
“I thought when we elected a black president, we were going to get a black president. You know, this [oil spill] is where I want a real blackpresident. I want him in a meeting with the BP CEOs, you know, where helifts up his shirt where you can see the gun in his pants. That’s – ‘we’ve got a motherfu**ing problem here?’ Shoot somebody in the foot.”
