    There was a lady substituting for Bob Beckel on The Five today. They asked her, "should Obama return Bill Maher's million....since he is foul mouthed to women?"

    She said, "no, what's a million $ to Obama, that's nothing."

    Remember when Romney said to another candidate at a debate, "I'll bet you $10,000.....," and then the next few days he was crucifird in the press for being out of touch with the common folk ?

    I'll bet you don't see or hear anything about Obama being out of touch even though he's 99% more out of touch than Romney.
     
  2. They're both out of touch. But why are you defending Romney, are you out of touch too?

    First of all. MAHER didnt donate to OBAMA. He donated to a SUPERPAC for OBAMA. Thats what the republicans wanted, and thats what they are going to get. Just wait until hollywood kicks in to the superpacs, you will all soil yourselves.

    MAHER donating to a superpac is no different than FOSTER FREEZE donating directly to Santorum and saying women should put an aspirin between their legs.

    Get over it.

    Peace

    Swoosh! right over your head.....the issue was the double standard which you FAILED to address at all. It's the title of the thread. We have other threads for has-been comics.

    You are the one unable to comprehend. Romney throwing out a $10K bet as though it were chump change shows just how out of touch he really is.

    Vice President Joe Biden addressed 87 wealthy Democrats last night attending a fundraiser at the home of Sen. John Kerry in Georgetown. As they dined on New York strip steaks, and white truffle mashed potatos underneath a outdoor tent, Biden criticized Republicans for being out of touch.
    “These guys don’t have a sense of the average folks out there,” Biden said according to the pool report, “They don’t know what it means to be middle class.”
    87 guests paid $10,000-per-couple to attend the dinner.

    [h=2]In his first press conference of 2012, President Barack Obama appeared "oddly disconnected" from the financial strain his economic policies have placed on everyday Americans.[/h] So says the Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee Jeff Sessions (R-AL):
    “Stunningly, in his first press conference of the year, President Obama did not have a word to say about America’s extraordinary debt threat, which puts our economy, our security, and our nation at risk. Nor did he address the recent report from the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office, which identified $400 billion spent on 1,500 programs that are wasteful and duplicative. He talks about our economic health, but somehow ignores the fact that he submitted a budget plan only days ago that would grow the nation’s total debt another 75 percent, increase spending and taxes, and lead us to certain financial disaster.
    According to Mr. Sessions, the press conference revealed a president uniquely out of touch with the economic struggles citizens continue to face under the president's leadership.
    President Obama waxed positive about the suffering economy—oddly disconnected from the painful truth that fewer Americans are working today than a decade ago, that wages are down, and that poverty has surged.

    I can comprehend and look at things 5 different ways and in 3-D while you still see it flat like a folded map.

    And this girl saying that a million dollars to Obama was nothing..........same thing.....chump change to Obama

    A million is NOT nothing to most of us, so that shows an out of touchness to the folk!

    The way they make it common at Kerry's house is to have a bottle of Heinz Catsup on the table for your steak!!

    You keep saying it went to OBAMA, it didnt, IT went to a superpac. THE GOP wanted superpacs and now you got them. Only problem is, you dont want them for democrats.

    You cant have it both ways my dear.

    Seems everything that fails stays in the US (thanks for the link More) :

    ketchup

    1711, from Malay kichap, from Chinese (Amoy dial.) koechiap "brine of fish." Catsup (earlier catchup) is a failed attempt at Anglicization, still in use in U.S

    Maybe you were just wrong about him hating capitalism.

    According to this, he was a pretty big fan of Occupy........they don't like capitalism

    Former Obama administration green jobs czar Van Jones said Saturday the Occupy Wall Street movement essentially “saved the entire country from destruction.”

    Jones made the comments in Los Angeles ahead of his appearance at an “All in for the 99%” training event, saying Occupy “disrupted the narrative” as both parties “barreling toward more austerity.”

    “[The] Occupy movement pretty much saved the entire country from destruction,” Jones said in an interview posted online. “Both political parties were barreling toward more austerity, more cutbacks, more pain for the people and more — basically both political parties had managed to converge on this idea of basically no rules for the rich, no rights for the poor, no middle class to speak of. That was basically the agenda, the question was just how much pain how fast.”

    New double standard...bhos states that women should be able to join Augusta National Golf Club, a famous men's golf club.
    Yet during his 80 foursome games of golf , how many women has he asked to join him ?

    One has little to do with other. BHO's golf outings are less about golf and more about business. If there were an influential woman with whom he wanted to discuss business I am sure she would be invited.

    It is 2012--the policy at Augusta is outdated.

    So you are alright with the removal of private property rights ?
    Because it's for the greater good.
