Though he had no idea what it was, the annual “Bush Center Warrior 100K” mountain bike ride, which took place over the Memorial Day weekend, upset Bill Maher. “I guess they walked or ran or something on their prosthetic limbs,” Maher sneered about George W. Bush’s ride around his Texas ranch with 20 servicemen, “and I found this to be nauseating. I mean, first he sends them off to war to get their limbs blown off and then he has them over for a barbecue.”
Maher then equated the former President with Ariel Castro, the kidnaper who held captive multiple women for a decade and murdered their un-born babies: “This is like the Cleveland guy having a pizza party for those girls he had in his basement.”

That was too much even for panelist Neera Tandem, an architect of ObamaCare who now runs the left-wing Center for American Progress. She interjected: “Maybe that’s a little much.”
But it wasn’t too much for actress Brit Marling, who insisted: “I think you can go even farther. I think it’s sort of sadistic.”
It’s a safe bet most wounded soldiers would rather take a bike ride with Bush than Maher or Marling.
From the May 31 Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO:
BILL MAHER: George Bush, over the Memorial Day weekend, held the Wounded Warrior 100K, which was a kind of a celebration for wounded warrior who is came back from Iraq and I guess they walked or ran or something on their prosthetic limbs. And I found this to be nauseating. I mean, first he sends them off to war to get their limbs blown off and then he has them over for a barbecue. This is like the Cleveland guy having a pizza party for those girls he had in his basement.
NEERA TANDEN: Maybe that’s a little much.
ACTRESS BRIT MARLING: I think you can go even farther. I think it’s sort of sadistic. It’s very tragic when something like that happens and the idea that like these amputees, the technology that is allowing them to do these things is somehow something to celebrate. People shouldn’t be over there losing limbs in the first place.
Liberals truly are adolescent retards.
Maybe the side by side visual is what Maher is afraid of...
I think Maher needs to give another million dollars, maybe it will put him in a better mood.
Go f yourself Bill. Or better yet go take a long walk off of a short pier.
and I found this to be nauseating."
I find Bill Maher nauseating.
What does Maher and this actress want to see.....
these veterans on the side of the road with tin cups and cardboard signs that say help me ?
Maher and buddies find a new low in low class.
A boycott of HBO makes sense to me ... Not one dime more for the sadistic SOB’s associating with HBO
Self reliance (actually God reliance, but the kind that works, rather than just sitting around vaguely hoping God might send something their way) and courage really mess with Maher’s socialistic views.
As for Brit Marling, you seriously have to wonder if during the interview process to select an actress, if they don’t test them and eliminate anyone with more than a 105 IQ. 105? From what she says here, I’m tempted to lower that a bit.
It upsets her and Maher, that men could volunteer, be dedicated to their duty, sacrifice for our nation, and still love it and the man who sent them to do a job for us.
I am not a big fan of Bush, but when it comes to following through with what he thought his duty was, he implemented his policy and followed through.
I do respect that.
I find these men to be champions. What a great group.
Glad he has gotten over his hatred of Bush. What a Marroon!
Pray for America to Wake Up
Wonder why the Wounded Warriors in mass didn’t “Beat” Maher out of their presence.
I guess this nitwit would prefer they crawl around for the rest of their lives muttering "Bush's fault".
They never say that during a democrat presidency.
F this Commie F@&&0T POS. I wish it were legal to kill enemies of this nation whenever and wherever you found them....
I was at the PX at Bragg, waiting in line for pizza, reading my book, head down, and I noticed the guys behind me were sorta rank. Like just finished with a run stink.
Turned around and looked at them.
One was left leg below the knee amputee. The other was right leg above the knee amputee. They were in PT gear. Waiting in line for pizza.
I gave them my spot in line and paid for their pizza.
I heard that one of them later requalified for jump status. I don't know that for a fact.
I used to work in NYC about 3 months per year; a week at a time. I would stay in a Midtown hotel and occasionally Maher would come into the bar at the hotel. I got to know the bartender very well. He was a good guy, but a typical NYC liberal union type of guy. Even though the bartender had liberal tendencies he couldn't stand morally corrupt people. The bartender knew tons of people and would introduce me to them. I met Ollie North, pro wrestlers, football players and so on.
The word from the bartender was that Maher couldn't get a date so he paid for his dates. He had a reputation of not being able to perform with his paid prostitutes. There was an entire rumor mill amongst the working women in Midtown to expect to be paid but don't expect a performance or a tip from Maher.
Maher is a revolting, vile, worthless, sorry-excuse for a man.
What pisses you off Maher? That Bush honors those that served this Nation or that those that served this nation respect him?
Probably both since you lack honor and no one respects you.
These guys and women too are such great positive thinkers, many of them. They put some of us pretty much healthy folks to shame don’t they.
What a douchebag. And Time-Lies-Warner-Turner supports him (he’s not just on HBO but on advertiser supported CNN as a “commentator”).
Defund the Left. Boycott Time-Warner and their advertisers.
Wonder what they would say about the Nuge taking wounded warriors shooting autofire weapons down at his ranch near Waco?
Only if I could go too.
I know, I'm being selfish.
Not a Maher fan, and he goes too far, but... to a certain point, he does have reason.
Does anyone here not believe that we would have far less dead and wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan had Bush/Rumsfeld/Petreaus/et al not over-reacted to the al-Ghraib controversy and enforced (for years) overly restrictive Queensbury rules of engagement in both countries (in a way that was not in evidence during the initial invasion of each country)? Sorry, but that was playing politics with our troops in a way that would have been unthinkable during WWII.
I do believe Bush rightly should (and, likely, does) feel some guilt. Otherwise, why is he constantly seeming to “do penance” by (admittedly, in a respectful manner) promoting the cause of wounded vets?
Now, this in no way, of course, exculpates the current resident of the White House, as he has only made the overly restrictive rules ever more restrictive, and, if I detect his sentiments correctly, he — unlike Bush — feels ZERO guilt over any ill effects his policies may have on the life, health, and/or morale of our troops.
When you tell a liberal that these war vets fight tooth and nail to return to duty, they fix you with a blank stare. I firmly believe they “erase” the comment because it doesn’t jibe with their false beliefs.
Now there’s a guy thinking on all cylinders. :^)
Every time I think Maher cannot drop lower than whale poop....he surprises me...he can...
The queer saw men and became sick of his own inadequacy.
My two kids and their spouses were wearing a uniform on 9/11. I was, by God, going back, if they would have me.
Awesome. Post #3 request. Thanks.
Why do they call this waste of oxygen a “comedian”? I would have thought that to be called a comedian you’d actually have to be at least a little bit funny.
I turned it off in the middle of his conversation, I swore I would never listen to him again, and haven't. I've never been nauseated by any speaker as quickly at any time in my life. It literally made me sick to listen to him.
Maher got into it for calling the 9/11 hijackers brave and our guys cowards for launching missiles from thousands of miles away. The next time he has a faux conservative/ fool conservative on I’d like to see him ask Bill what he thinks of Obama’s drone policy. I don’t have anything against using the drones but I would like to see Maher explain how that’s noble under zero bur guided missiles under Bush were evil.
You mean it isn't? Oops.
He couldn't find it with both hands.
You are right about Maher..
That is not the point bill maher (a real world class slimeball) is trying to make. In fact, if you point holds water at all, maher is at least partly responsible for that.
But really for him it’s all for yucks, don’t you know?
Liberals are not even developed to the level of adolescence. However, they are retarded.
Bill Maher, nasty, angry, alleged comedian. As for Brit Marling....who is she?
But really for him its all for yucks, dont you know?
That may be the coup de gras in this entire discussion.
Of course that goes without saying that Maher is nauseating, but these morons who laugh with him aren’t any better either
I have boycotted HBO since the mid seventies
Maher’s own mother finds him nauseating.
Dr Marc Siegel one of the Medical team of Fox News.com participated like he did last year on the W100K Ride with the wounded warriors. He said the warriors still consider President Bush as their Commander in Chief
