Advice to Democrats from Michael Moore and Bill Maher
Michael Moore said:
“Democrats are in for an ass-whipping of biblical proportions in November if they don't get off the dime and do the job they were sent there to do. Don't they see that?
“When the Republicans come into town, they get in the hummer, and they drive down Pennsylvania Avenue and mow down anybody in sight. They walk into Congress with both guns blazing, and they say 'we were sent here to do a job,' and then they do the job.
“Democrats come in, and go, 'Oh, hi, hi. I guess we don't need universal health care for everybody. We can, we can, no we can compromise. It's okay.' They used to at least sing 'Kumbaya.' Now they go in like frightened animals. I don't understand it.
“Americans don't really see themselves as Democrats or Republicans. They want somebody in there who believes in something, who's going to go for it.”
In case that wasn’t blunt enough, Bill Maher reprimanded Obama with:
“I think the biggest mistake that he has made in his first year was to put bipartisanship ahead of fixing the country.”
Obama should have “come in with all the energy from the election and saying, you know what, we're in a crisis mode, I won this election by a sizable mandate — here's what we're going to do; if you don't like it, Republicans, you can suck on it.”
But it’s never too late. Or is it???
This last quote isn’t relevant to this particular subject, but last summer Bill Maher said: “We don't have a left and a right party anymore because Democrats have moved to the right, and the right has moved into a mental hospital.”
