Maher Blasts Dem Candidates for ‘Running Away’ from Obama Like Cowards

Last night, Bill Maher declared a new rule for the Democrats: stop running away from President Obama and his accomplishments. “That is never a winning strategy,” he chastised. “Look at Vice President Al Gore.”

Singling out candidates like Alison Lundergan Grimes and Clay Aiken, who’ve scrambled away from being associated with Obama, Maher wondered why they’d act so cowardly: “You would think he’d just flew in from Liberia with his lunch in a barf bag.”

“Well, sorry, but the one I feel bad for is Obama,” Maher said. “63 straight months of economic expansion. A depression, averted. A deficit that’s reduced by two-thirds. A healthcare law that’s working and lowering costs. Two women on the Supreme Court. Bin Laden’s dead. Stock market at record heights. An unemployment rate that dropped from 10.2% to 5.9% — If you’re a Fox News viewer trying to do the math, that’s less — gas prices are down. Is it really that hard of a record to get behind?!”

(Oh, and everyone else who isn’t a cowardly Democrat candidate should vote.)
