While I rarely agree with Tina Brown, this is one of the few times that I do! What she had to say here speaks volumes about the hypocrisy from the left of all stripes. We all know the left seems to have the mute-button on permanent status when it comes to the use of drones by their all powerful messiah, their one and only Dear Leader! For them, it’s bow down and hail to the chief…the silence about this issue has been deafening!
Along comes Tina Brown, she sure as heck broke that silence last night when she dared to say if Obama had been Bush, he would have been impeached by now! – Here’s the report I read this morning:
Newsweek / Daily Beast Editor-In-Chief Tina Brown saved her most inflammatory comment of last night’s Real Time with Bill Maher for the online-only “Overtime” portion of the show.
Responding to an audience question about the Obama administration targeting whistle-blowers, Bill Maher said “the Democrats’ view on Obama seems to be ‘God, what he does would be awful if it was a Republican.”
That idea prompted Brown to offer her assessment that President Obama “would be impeached by now on drones, if he were W. Bush. Don’t you think?” Facing disbelief from Maher, she attempted to clarify her point a bit, saying “if this were a Republican president, the outcry about drones would be far greater.”
Panelist Lawrence Krauss posited that “Democratic presidents have to show they’re hawkish, they have to show they have the balls to kill someone.”
Maher agreed and pointed out that it’s the same thing with guns. “We don’t have a party in this country that’s really against guns,” he said. “We have a party that loves guns in a fervid, sexual kind of way and a party that says ‘we love guns too, but just a little more rationally.’”

Of course Maher and his other guest didn’t like what she had to say one iota, their back and forth was viscerally disgusting in my humble opinion…and of course guns had to be thrown in the mix to-boot!
