    Great Michael Moore advice to Obama

    I wonder if it is too late for this ... but we can hope.

    SInce that video is just a snapshot, does Moore actually say something worthwile- you know, detail as to what Obama should do, instead of spouting nonsense that doesn't actually mean anything?

    Quite to the contrary. He got a big audience reaction. I think he voices an opinion that is shared by many Obama supporters who want a tougher and far more aggressive president. The health care situation and the current tax cuts situation is the perfect illustration.

    That was such a great episode. Practically everything that came out of Michael Moore's mouth was either wrong or just plain stupid. The CNN political correspondent tried to bring in some common sense, but eventually just sat there and shook her head.

    I'm sure he does. The problem is that you're not going to win an election by targeting such a small segment of voters.

    I really wish Obama would take Moore's advice. It would set Socialists and Communist Progressive back 30 years. I now have a new addition to my prayers. Thank you Michael Moore.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Error. Divide by zero.

    Re: Great Michael Moore advice to Obama

    Maher actually said that he wished Obama could be more like Bush... not with respect to any policies or ideas of course, but with respect to his decisive, in-your-face, "this is what I believe, too bad if you don't like it" quality... "You actually authorized waterboarding?" "Damn straight I did!"

    Because Bush was ridiculed for his "cowboy persona" -- people intitally treated Obama's tendency to waffle and equivocate as refreshing. At the time, they reasoned that Bush could only see black and white, but "brilliant" Obama concerned himself with all those complexities of gray.

    They're not so enamoured by that anymore.

    LOL - at one point he suggested we could balance the budget by offsetting any of the proposed cuts to social programs with an increase in the corporate income tax. That's how uninformed he is.

    Later, he suggested Obama (having shed his pink tutu) - be more like FDR, giggling about how he seized control of Montgomery Ward during WWII and sent in the National Guard to carry its Chairman Sewell Avery away. Moore was practically drooling... "Can you imagine if we did that to Exxon?"
