Bill Maher Explains His Criticism Of President Obama On “Countdown”

Bill Maher appeared on MSNBC’s “Countdown” with Keith Olbermann last night to discuss his editorial on “Real Time” Friday criticizing President Obama. On the public’s view of Obama, Maher said last night:

“They’re getting to the point where they’re saying ‘Yeah, we still like Obama. He’s our guy. We’re glad he’s our president. But where’s the beef?” And it’s easy to make speeches. What’s hard to do is stand up to corporations. Corporations and their incredible strength are what have ruined this country so far. And this president we thought might be the one to stand up to them. I’m losing hope. I still have audacity but my hope is fading.”
