Maher gets it on the money as always.
Maher: Why can't the Democrats get props for what they've achieved? Oh, I know... I know. Obama's black. He's used to being denied credit. And there's nothing wrong with being hard on him. He's the president and it's our job to keep him honest.I am all for people criticising Obama when he wavers, that's the right thing to do. But it's idiocy to ignore what his opponents want to do. He might be, at times, disappointing, but they are outright loons.
But when it comes to voting, when we only have two choices, you've got to grow up and realize there's a big difference between a disappointing friend and a deadly enemy. Of course the Democrats are disappointing. That's what makes them Democrats. If they were any more frustrating they'd be your relatives.
But in this country they are all that stands between you and darkest night. You know why their symbol is the letter "D"? Because it's a grade that means good enough, but just barely.
You know why the Republican symbol is "R"? Because it's the noise a pirate makes when he robs you and feeds you to a shark.
