Bill Maher was great on The View. I watched it live and thought he is saying the same things we do. I've noticed he mentions the same things we talk about here, on his show. I wouldn't be surprised if DKos is in his bookmarks.

He's done fantastic. People are -- first of all -- You know, first of all, he had to deal with things no other president has ever had to deal with. It's true. I know the tea party hates hearing that. They're racist, because 99.999% of them are white and the president who drives them insane is black is just a coincidence. I'm sorry, nobody had to deal with what he has to deal with. I never saw -- I never saw a governor stick the finger in a president's face like the governor of Arizona did. I never saw a president heckled at the State of the Union like he was. I never saw Bill O'Reilly interrupt a president like he has. There's a in your face, in your space, disrespect going on there. Of course, his plate is so full. It's funny the way he seems to get things. I was always on his case about the environment. He seems to be finally getting around to that. You can't do everything at once. He first of all, you know, had to save the economy when he came into office. People forget Bush left him a tire fire for an economy. We were losing 750,000 jobs a month. This place was going into hell in a hand cart, but no-drama Obama calmly got through that. Healthcare. Every president tried to do that. Why are the democrats running away from that?
I stood up and yelled hell yeah. Obama has done more than most, in the face of the worst obstruction I've ever seen. People forget the damage Republicans did. Hell too many don't even know about it. Like about the Pay to play system they created (even had a menu). The fake made in the usa bullshit. NO WMD IN IRAQ. Bill Maher calls them out and I think he is overall spot on in his characterization of them. They are disrespectful racists.

The way Fox News and the right have treated him will be forever etched on their tombstones imo.


How has Obama done considering the political environment in recent years?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
