Yes, the same lib Bill Maher who launched into a hateful, vitriolic attack on the late Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States (Newsbusters).
Maher began his final New Rule by describing Bob Dole as “so Republican his adult diaper has a flag pin.” Imagine him ridiculing an elderly Democrat that way.
From there, Maher contested Dole’s recently iterated view that the GOP has gone so far right that Reagan wouldn’t fit in.
“Ronald Reagan was an anti-government, union-busting, race-baiting, anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-intellectual, who cut rich people’s taxes in half, had an incurable case for the military industrial complex, and said Medicare was socialism that would destroy our freedom. Sounds to me like he would fit in just fine.”
Actually, with the exception of the race-baiting, anti-gay, and anti-intellectual descriptors, Maher got it right.
From there, he actually blamed Reagan for starting income inequality by cutting taxes.
You see, in Maher’s pot smoke-filled world, there was no income inequality prior to 1981. There were no poor and no rich. (Actually, under Carter there weren’t a lot of rich people due to how poorly the economy was doing!)
“Reagan just made s—t up,” stated Maher, “something he pioneered for his party of today.” This from a man who regularly says stuff devoid of facts.
“He was the original, official pitchman for bats—t,” Maher continued. “Worst of all, Reagan inspired a whole generation of people who hate government to get into government. Both sides should really stop pretending he was something other than the man most responsible for our decline.”
Yes, he really said this. I guess Maher thought America was a better place under Carter, what with higher unemployment, runaway inflation, and our standing in the world second to the burgeoning Soviet Union.Typical of an Obama boot-licker...uncivil and hateful.
But that's not all. Remember what Maher said about George W. Bush's NSA program, which was limited to tracking domestic calls to known or suspected terrorists overseas?
"The National Security Agency has been collecting the phone records of tens of millions of ordinary Americans. I just don't think Bush gets it. When people say these days that we need more intelligence in the White House, they're talking about something completely different." --Bill Maher
"Bush's approval rating has fallen into the 20s -- 29 percent in the latest poll. I tell you. It's hard out there for a chimp. ... He says he doesn't pay attention to the polls. If he wants to know what the American people are thinking, he'll listen to your calls." --Bill MaherIt was a joke to Maher, and another reason for him and other fellow libs to attack Bush.
"I got a call last night during dinner from Verizon asking me if I was happy with my long distance surveillance." --Bill Maher
But Maher is fine with Obama's NSA spying of all Americans, regardless of whether or not they are suspected of anything.
Liberals spent the Bush years defending Islamic terrorists, but don't mind Obama's spying, because like Obama and the criminal organization known as the Democrat Party, they think all of us "teabaggers" represent a bigger threat to America than al-Queda.
That's liberal logic. Insane, isn't it?
