Maher Calls Bike Ride with Wounded Warriors ‘Nauseating,’ Compares Bush to Cleveland Kidnaper

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.”

Maher Calls Bike Ride with Wounded Warriors 'Nauseating,' Compares Bush to Cleveland Kidnaper

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.

Thanks Kaslin.
Though he had no idea what it was... 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...
So, why'd the Wounded Warriors show up then, you miserable POS demagogue?

Thanks Kaslin. I wonder why? LMAO

It’s good to know they think of him that way.

I try not to think of the other guy in situations like this. It’s downright depressing.

Agreed, it's hard to believe anyone would laugh while listening to him rather than having dry heaves.......just how weird do you have to be to make up his audience?

Seeing or reading about combat veterans with or without limbs being honored throws a creep like Maher into a seething turmoil inside his gut because these vets are REAL MANLY MEN and he's a faggy, weak, butt-ugly, metro-feminine, cowardly, creepy little marxist worm....and he knows it.

It isn’t surprising to hear this from the rat-faced genetic disaster. Instead of the outrage he craves and feeds on, he deserves a big yawn.

There’s an entry in Mayer’s biography that is somehow forgotten even though it was fairly recent.

A comedy was filmed and released during Bill Clinton’s administration entitled ‘Bill Clinton’s Talking Penis.’

Bill Mayer furnished the voice-over for the title role.

“He had a reputation of not being able to perform with his paid prostitutes.”

That explains Maher’s comraderie with his audience of clueless adolescents who can find humor in the plight of amputees who returned from a war. His show is a support group for people who haven’t been able to get a life.

At least there may be hope for some of the kids in his audience.

**** “That, and it’s always polite to make way for crazy people that make a living jumping out of airplanes and killing people.” *****

True and Bump... but it is more a way of life than making a living... if Eternal Youth is ever achieved, these folks should get “Head of the Line Privileges”

If his hero FDR hadn’t sent soldiers to ‘get their limbs blown off’, Herr Maher would be speaking German or Japanese.

Maher should STFU....what he is doing is making a special time for these people who gave much for us.......

Someone who has never put his life on the line, or lost a limb really should keep his mouth shut.

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.

The technology that allows them to do these things is also used for people that suffer automotive and industrial accidents, and surprise birth defects.

People shouldn’t be over there losing limbs in the first place.

Yeah it is a much better idea to allow them to come to our shores in cities like say Boston.

Bill you're an F'n moron!

I have done Sprint Triathlons 20K bike rides, on a racing road bike and that is no picnic.

I can't imagine 100k in the Texas heat.

I detest these leftists that say to OK Obama’s war(s) but criticize the Bush’s actions. That said I do believe that the whole/complete story of the gulf wars is yet to be told. I think there was/is a hidden agenda as to oil supplies. Such would/could of course involve relationships with the Saudis who had/have in fact no love for the USA except to sell their oil. The Saudis are set on having Sharia law in the US and many of our politicians don’t give a hoot and people like Obama even work for it.

I think Bill Maher is looking back at his miserable life and finding out that being a liberal has brought him no happiness. In fact it has turned him into a miserable POS with no love for his fellow man. None.

Something else GWB and Laura does is.. Former President George W. Bush surprised soldiers returning home mainly from Iraq and Afghanistan at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport on Thursday. (CNN) - Former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush surprised 145 troops returning home from war Wednesday, greeting them at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The service members, most returning for a two-week break, arrived on a charter flight expecting to be met by the Dallas-based Welcome Home A Hero organization. But waiting with the crowd at the international arrivals section were the smiling former president and first lady. "We didn't tell them at all what was going on," said the leader of the welcoming group, Lt. Col. Patrick McAfee. "It was shock and awe when they walked in the double doors." http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/08/12/george-and-laura-bush-surprise-returning-troops/ The Bushes have done this often..
