Obama eagerly accepts $1 Million in PAC from Misogynist Bill Maher


George Stephanopoulos asks former Obama White House adviser Melody Barnes, and the panel on "This Week," if Obama and his campaign will have to distance themselves from Bill Maher after his comment that "Ann Romney has never gotten her ass out of the house to work."

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Before we leave this issue, I tend to agree with you all that this particular dispute is going to flare up and flame out, but, Melody, I wonder if the president has a -- has a continuing problem with Bill Maher? You know, you saw those comments he made on Friday night. He's given $1 million. He's the biggest single contributor to the super PAC aligned with the president. This has now happened a couple of times. Do you think the president is going to have to cut ties?

MELODY BARNES, FORMER OBAMA ADVISER: Well, you know, I listened to those comments, and my grandmother's voice came in my head. I thought about the phrase, "Home training." You know, the language, the sentiment are problematic, and the campaign has -- and the president has said, look, the civility is -- it matters. The way we talk to each other matters. And they're going to have to, as you said, make a decision. I saw David Axelrod in earlier situations when comments have been made by Bill Maher say, I'm not going on your show. I'm backing away. I'm distancing myself. So it's a conversation...

Carney Dodges Question On Bishop Wearing Hoodie At WH Easter Event
Related Videos | expand

Press secretary Jay Carney refused to answer questions about a bishop wearing a hoodie to a White House Easter event today. Carney also gave no response to questions about the investigation into the Trayvon Martin case and the "hoodie movement." Carney referred questions to the Justice Department.

"The president, as you know, has made remarks on the case and the tragedy of the loss of life here. But I don't have any further comment on that," Carney told White House reporter April Ryan.

When asked what the White House has to say about the "hoodie movement" making it to the White House, Carney again declined to comment.

"Well, I haven't spoken to the president about this so I don't have anything to express on that issue. And again, I don't think it's appropriate and I won't, therefore, comment on something that's under an ongoing investigation by both the Justice Department and Florida authorities," he said.

"I just don't have a comment on that," Carney said when pressed further.




The STENCH of this Wretched Obama HYPOCRISY is Unbelievable.

(D) Misogynist Bill Maher: Rosen Meant To Say Ann Romney Never Got Her A** to work

HBO's Bill Maher weighs in on the Hilary Rosen controversy, dismissing it as a "non-consequential," meaningless controversy. Maher also says Ann Romney "has never gotten her ass out of the house to work."

"The language here was, perhaps, inartful, or perhaps America is a society that lives to fight stupid, non-consequential, meaningless controversies and this is the new one," Bill Maher said during the panel portion of his HBO show "Real Time" last night.

"But what she meant to say, I think, was that Ann Romney has never gotten her ass out of the house to work. No one is denying that being a mother is a tough job, I remember that I was a handful. Okay, but there is a big difference in being a mother, and that tough job, and getting your ass out of the door at 7am when itís cold, having to deal with the boss, being in a workplace, and even if you're unhappy you canít show it for 8 hours, that is a different kind of tough thing," Maher observed last night.

OB also contradicted himself the other day when he said "The U.S. has no right to tell Egypt what kind of Government to have". But just a few mths ago he was telling Mubarak to get out!" They think we are all so stupid that we don't remember from one minute to the next what they are saying and doing.

O only paid 20%. You didn't see him running over to the Treasury to give them more money did you? The whole tax system needs to be redone instead of them adding more and more garbage to it so their buddies get tax breaks. Obviously you don't understand that capital gains income is taxed at a lower rate.Thats why buffet pays less.

Half the rich or so are Democrats. None volunteer to pay more taxes. Some vent their anger that they do not pay more in taxes. And even threaten violence if they do not. They just don't seem to find the way to do it. Now there are those who turn their popularity into a soapbox. On a state level, the singer Bruce Springsteen is one of them. A man who champions everyone from the progressive side but keeps for himself. He has a residence in New Jersey. I read an article that he owns a few hundred acres or so and the tax bill would be a few hundred thousand dollars a year. there is a state law where if you have a few farm animals that you have masive decreases in property taxes. So he pays about five thousand dollars a year. I have relatives in tract housing with 1200, 1500 square feet of living space paying more. And their wages are much less. Now I would not write this, but Springsteen who is a great talent presents himself openly as some Mother Teresa type for the oppressed. This opens himself up to criticism. If true, he is wrong.

He gives millions to charity and tithes to his church (you dunce), unlike sharpton and the mafia union bosses who steal millions.

Jesse jackson doesn't even bother to file a tax return anymore and the IRS lets him get away with it.

LOL Like Sharia Law!

We shouldn't be asking if Romney is Christian.

We should be asking if Jesus was Mormon, especially when Bishop Romney gives so much money to his Mormon Temple.
