I happened to have watched that show last Friday evening. He was defending Romney's father's decision to move his plant to another state (at least he didn't move it to China, he said) His father had every right to do so.
But I think that the joke was in bad taste in this election season because of the tough job market, and the fact that we are recovering from a massive loss of jobs in this country. I thought he was out of touch with the voters,in this instance. There is nothing funny about taking away someone's job and moving it to another state no matter what the reason is.
WHAT's not to understand???? George Romney was the CEO of an automobile company and made a SMART decision to move some production from Michigan to Wisconsin!!!! Maher tries to make a valid point... that it was an INTERSTATE move... but AT LEAST (Thank God!) wasn't a move to an out-of-the-USofA place...
Are "WE" of a mind that "we" can't make ANY decisions to CHANGE our business's operating arrangements?????? WHO is to decide which are the "right" arrangements to have/keep.... and which could/might be subject to change????
Damn, people, WAKE UP.... it's just these decisions which we MUST make in order to assure that we DO maximize the economy/job picture in this country. I think kibitzers/Monday-morning-quarterbacks should be much more reluctant to spout off until/unless they have more-solid data on which to voice their opinions......

He referred to yesterday's AL and MS voters as "toothless":http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-shepp … z1p3LG4lTAThis guy is just mean! Why can't he be more like Jon Stewart? Stewart is actually funnier to me, yet he's not nearly as vile as Maher.

From several exchanges, I learned why some people are voting for Romney. It is because Romney will launch a war against Iran. Generally, it is said that Muslims will attack the U.S. again. And that Iran will use nukes, maybe suitcase bombs. Muslim, socialist Obama won't stop it from happening.Now,...

The title is misleading, because I have no answer as to why he does. Can those of you who plan to vote, or voted for Obama the first time give some valid reasons?
