President Obama taking a lot of heat for -- super -- accepting a million bucks from Bill Maher -- you know that liberal slime that some.
Pretty awful things to say about conservative women.
In fact conservative women of America asked the president to send back the million dollars.
Here's how the Obama mouthpiece Jay Carney ducked the question.
He chooses to.
In the in the pursuit of more and more civil discourse -- our.
Public space he chooses to try to practice that civility himself in and he calls on everybody.
To do just that.
What the hell does that mean G-8.
America I'll tell you what that means it means Obama has no intention to return the money for Mars.
On one side of his mouth Obama says he's outraged that the name calling and on the other side he embraces the principal name caller.
Take a look at this tell -- -- go to -- so.
Bill Maher gives one million dollars to priorities USA that's the put it political action committee that's representing Obama.
The reelection campaign Obama says no way.
I can't make political action committees give the money back to Bill -- we don't have that relationship there.
But was a White House turn and do immediately.
Offer up Valerie Jarrett David -- David Axelrod Kathleen Sebelius to headline fund raisers.
Four priorities USA.
Super -- and really can't make this stuff up -- what is it is he against that the rhetoric is against the name calling or is he gonna go ahead and make sure that the people who fund his campaign.
Are also the people who he's supporting.
It's almost all of those things look if you're a liberal.
You can get away with saying whatever you -- this administration.
It's not like -- and secondly he's gonna give the money back would it look great if he did it yes but he won't even content.
The language he won't even speak up and say it's -- -- statement.
He's a comedian right -- -- and we've discusses any.
Really at all of us put clown -- on in crunches and called us cut ourselves comedians -- -- be allowed to -- used to explode that is nothing but that's what they're and that's what they're hiding behind and I was on Sean Hannity radio show this afternoon with a liberal.
At feminist and she said but it was the -- -- that the conservatives just kept saying that nasty four letter word over and over.
If you see it once or another time in their argument is really really weak on.
But -- at the press conference -- for Super Tuesday press conference member when he had to do it on that day.
He invoked the name his wife and and in the name of his children he said I don't want my children to be exposed to bad name calling and rhetoric and whatnot.
But then he goes ahead and and you see the relationship Bill Maher super pac Obama super pack two million dollars.
I think back I think in that one case you're talking about years no excuses to a -- -- -- -- -- he was.
Attacking somebody Hillary Clinton who's quite in the position -- machine -- who's incredibly.
-- herself frankly not -- grow from and lost lost all of this in but leave -- that leave that aside.
Watch on the money back.
I mean his first like well you tell me right about -- -- he's right about -- -- outrage it won't know you can no I can't.
He can't -- what what then can he raise money for sure to prepare them to raise money -- can't tell us trends are not just the wreckage of Guernica in -- -- -- the -- and -- -- -- -- wouldn't -- -- Should he tell us who prepared to be asked.
The super back to return the money.
May I don't think -- will because if you look at their situation just this week we -- -- -- -- to talk about this what you would have.
Earlier and on Monday Politico reported that the Obama campaign.
Folks told Reid and Pelosi the senate house and the senate for their real for all that election campaigns.
They're not gonna get it any money from the Obama campaign you know why because they think they're gonna need every cent of it and they had a 159%.
Burn rate last month on the campaign.
That means that they need every -- he's not gonna give -- my back now on hypocrisy thing that.
It just loses so they lose the moral high ground just when he sees it they lose it then they get it back and then they lose it and so at this -- -- America's sped up or not.
-- it not.
Think you know going to do about it -- -- -- to.
Had a welcome one part of why you -- I can tell you -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What deputy who runs priorities USA and right which is -- Related to up president I'm really secure.
The -- rose nine out of they have opinions yet but I have not check my voicemail they could have direct finally got balance he's the notion that there's an equivalent between what comedians said over the course for career and -- -- de facto leader of the Republican Party -- took -- look at Rush Limbaugh -- the -- before the president called an announcer.
-- -- -- Can I bring this into written I know we do we're gonna get out -- very very quickly take their full screen one more time the new one.
This is the Alabama Democrats have been reported that they weren't that Nomar is gonna have bill markets and our -- I was gonna headline one of their parties we -- them.
The leader of this group can't member's name doesn't sorry he told me this isn't exactly accurate yes that little thing -- sold out yes they did raise a hundred bucks per person for it and yes Bill Maher will be there.
But Bill Maher has nothing to do it itself here's a question.
Democrats seem to embrace Bill Maher who said.
The C word and the T word about Sarah Palin and all others.
Yet there can they're they're condemning a guy who write that.
Well that's the point maybe you could not bring back the money so they're not gonna -- that he's wrong they're not gonna ask him to apologize instead they're gonna say hey come headline some fund raisers.
Really they would have so much more credibility with all women if they really want of that woman's vote that -- so desperately I think it would come on denounce all these.
I get back to this point if you'd want if you it was what do you say it was bad habits -- -- said but if you're gonna take money from a guy you trade with the enemy like the Coke Brothers do you don't have managed to turn it certainly got I don't know -- -- -- -- a coming up our energy secretary Steven -- remember him.
Still -- the Chevy Volt.
If you really just admits he doesn't even drive a car the Obama energy czar doesn't drive a car you can't make this stuff -- that's the right back.
