Bill Maher: Obama “Looks Like A Pussy” For Obeying Bill Clinton

Ms. Conservative


TV personality Bill Maher is not happy about the increasingly likely intervention into Syria.

On Friday night he asked, “Can’t we just sit one of [the wars] out? Does ever time the bat signal go off, we have to answer it?”

As we reported yesterday, former President Bill Clinton made commentary at a closed press event that Obama will look like a “wuss” if he doesn’t take action in Syria.

Conservative pollster Kellyanne Conway said, “I think Bill Clinton helped to goad President Obama into taking this action.”

“Then he looks more like a pussy doing it. If a guy says, ‘If you don’t do something, you’re a wuss,’ and the next day you do it, it’s like your mother coming to school and beating up a bully,” said Maher.

Niall Ferguson, a historian at Harvard, said that the dilemma with Syria is the effect of Obama’s lack of specificity and action in the general Middle East. Ferguson said there has been a “complete absence of policy from the Cairo speech onwards.”

As Ferguson spoke, Maher and journalist Jonathan Alter continued to ask, “What was [Obama] supposed to do?”

Ferguson replied, “This is a typical example of what happens when you have no foreign policy. It is very important for you to recognize, and for your audience to recognize, what a disaster this has been, almost from the beginning.”

Maher then smugly asked, “Does our foreign policy always have to be ‘Unless you do what we want, we bomb you?'”

“That’s too facile,” responded Ferguson.

Then Conway jumped in, saying, “I think he’s exaggerating his place in history. He’s neither a hero nor traitor, but he’s engaged us in a conversation that we needed to have. Even if the NSA surveillance has thwarted terrorists and saved thousands of American lives, which I will grant you, they never seem to get the conversations we want them to get. Why aren’t there email exchanges and conversations with Hasan from Fort Hood, or the Boston bombers?”

Maher had his own suggestion for the surveillance program: “Why can’t we have a provision in the surveillance act that says if you use this for any other reason besides national security,” Maher proposed, “if you go into a sex scandal or any other thing, we will do the same to you. It seems like that would solve the problem.”
