HBO ‘Real Time’ host Bill Maher ended his season finale on Friday by urging President Back Obama to be more aggressive pushing a liberal agenda as a show of his election win to “right-wing hacks.”
“New rule: Now that he’s been reelected, President Obama must get back at all those right-wing hacks that tried to paint him as an angry black man pushing a liberal agenda by becoming an angry black man who is pushing a liberal agenda,” Maher declared.
Maher explained he had been exercising discretion in criticizing Obama, but now that he has been reelected that will no longer be the case.
“Now, I have been mostly holding my tongue about the president this past season because I didn’t want to muddy the waters in a country where you only get two choices,” Maher said. “But Mr. President, there are two ways to look at the 51-to-48 percent victory. One is we love you. The other is, we like you 3 percent better than Mitt Romney. And by the way, let us never speak that name again. Let it be a dark and buried memory of a close call with a creature equal parts pure evil and excellent posture, like getting dry humped in a crowded subway by Roger Moore.”
Maher continued by arguing progressives should hold the commander-in-chief accountable as well.
“I like this president,” Maher continued. “In all those secret strategy meetings we had, with me and him and George Soros and the New Black Panthers, I found him to be very agreeable, Allah be praised. But it’s now the job of progressives to hold his feet to the fire for causes important to us. If not now, when? There’s no third term, Mr. President, so you might as well throw caution to the wind because it’s not like we’re using it to produce energy.”
Among the “issues” on Maher’s laundry list included civil liberties, the drug war, the drone war, gun control, clean coal, the defense budget, Afghanistan and the Patriot Act.
