Dinesh D’Souza appeared on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher this week to promote his film The Roots of Obama’s Rage. The movie promotes the central thesis that that Obama was influenced by his father’s anti-Colonialist views.
Bill Maher completely tore D’Souza apart on the facts beginning with healthcare.
Responding to Bill Maher’s statement that:
“You say that he’s [Obama] full of rage and I notice that was a central theme of Clint Eastwood’s performance last night, too …that he kept talking to the invisible guy who said things like ‘Go fuck yourself.’ But the real Obama …I’ve never seen do anything like that.
D’Souza responded by saying,
“There’s Clint Eastwood rage –Dirty Harry– and then there’s Charles Bronson rage … vigilante rage. It’s a different kind of rage. It’s sublimated –and you see it in action. Let’s take an example: You had health care. Obama had plan and Republicans had a summit with Obama and they offered a lot of ideas. Obama could have taken one or two Republican ideas and he would have had a bipartisan plan.”
Maher responded, “Actually he did. The whole thing is a Republican idea…. it’s the old Bob Dole plan…. It’s like a blowjob for the insurance companies is what it is…..”
