That is because Obama supporters are in a self induced political stupor and out of touch with reality. Booing is so very immature and shows lack of empathy and tolerance for anyone's opinion other than their own. The hypocrisy exhibited by the aforementioned is astounding. Boo me, I don't really care.

If he can't find anything funny about Obama, that proves he's not a very good comic.

Obama's funny, but not "ha-ha" funny. I hope there's a country left in 4 years.

A good propagandist never satirizes his Fuhrer. Heinrich Maher knows this well.

Yeah sure, it's sooo hard to make fun of Obama.

According to the liberal Maher, Jon Stewart, SNL et. al, Obama has no flaws by golly.

Why, he's The Messiah. Alleluha!

Word to anyone who calls themself a comedian and are unable to find humor in Obama (I can think of a millions things), find another profession because you s-u-c-k as comedians.

I don't understand why comedians like Maher and Stewart suddenly find it their duty to educate the common folk on the state of the world. I do not respect people that count on these self-righteous COMEDIANS for their news.

Good grief! Where do all these angry people come from. And what's it all about, anyway? Grumble, mumble, fuss and bother. Would Alka-Seltzer help, or do ya'll need something stronger, like hard cider.

Well, I just hope you can manage to make your way through life's perturbations, one way or another. And remember, Jesus loves you, even if you don't reciprocate.

The same Republicants who picketed the Dixie Chicks for belittling their idiot hero now wonder why we get upset about Obama bashing. Let's see...one lied to the world, started a war we didn't need, enriched his oil buddies on the blood of our soldiers, initiated a hands-off policy of financial firms despite the Enron meltdown that happened right after he took office and helped destroy U.S. status in the world. The other inherited a f--ked up house with so many problems he needs a pile of cash to fix them all. Without offering an alternative plan, his critics hold a tea bagging orgy and cry, "Not Me!".

Short memories and thin skin abound with Republicants. Mission Accomplished!

Where do you get your 'news'? Let me guess, the comedians at Fox??

Tee up another one for me. I could do this all day. Republicants are so predictable...that's why their whining will just make it easier for President Obama in 2012.

Only wants to have intelligent people? This in itself is laughable and he has failed.

"He doesn't cheat on his wife" has he not heard of Vera Baker!! Google Obamas mistress and her name will pop up. Everyone in the campaign knew about her that is why she needed to disapear. I think Mr. Maher should get his facts right...that would be a first.

These idiotic Obama followers are like lemmings going off the cliff. Oh wait a second, most of you don't pay any taxes anyway so you'll do whatever BO says.

Hey Candy A S S I see that you do your broken record whining from Australia!

Good....Stay there...

I pretty much don't care to hear you views about anything...you bailed !!!!

As to Bill Maher...what his thought are about obama, Bush, religion, or anything else is of no interest to me and many others!!!

He's just a bitter little turd !!!!

If you get cable/sat TV and subscribe to HBO you're stuck with this fool and his babbling.
