Bill Maher Claims GOP Refuses To Work With Obama Because “Obama Has Cooties”

In last night’s “New Rules” segment, Bill Maher took on what he sees as the real GOP leadership– not the elected officials, but the “children” in the media who rile up the masses. Comparing the Republicans to their UK counterparts in the Conservative Party, Maher noted that English voters don’t seem to care about social issues as much as Americans, and that Republicans should follow their lead, rather than avoid Democrats because of their well-documented case of “cooties.”

It’s not at all Republicans are children, Maher explained, but that the ones that are, in his opinion, sensible follow the lead of those that are not:

“Like a lot of parents today, the adults let their kids cow them, and silence them, and rule over them. Rush Limbaugh is a child, but he gets his way because he’s the fat bully on the playground. For example, to solve our debt crisis, a bunch of Republican senators suggested a bipartisan debt commission, which is the adult thing to do. But when Obama agreed to it, immediately, seven of them said no, now they’re against it, because Obama has cooties. That’s right, Democrats have cooties so you can’t vote with them or work with them, and compromise is treason.”

It made him think, he said, if it was possible that the left was equally extreme during the Bush administration. He decided against it because President Bush “merited it.”
