Bill Maher Calls Obama To Task

High time someone called Obama to task. Frankly, so far I am very ambivalent about the president's accomplishments. Yes, he has changed the tone of our relationship with the rest of the world, particularly the Muslim world, in ways that make conservatives' blood boil, and that's a very good thing. Yes, it is nice to have a thoughtful, intelligent, rational person at the helm, particularly in troubled times. Yes, his charisma has given Americans a much needed injection of optimism in difficult seas. But those are not the reasons why we elected Obama for, and Bill Maher points that out quite sharply, starting at 2:07 in the video below (the first two minutes, frankly, are fluff.)
