“It’s called leadership"

A few days back, Bill Maher hosted a panel of two conservative guest (very popular across all cable networks) and one progressive guest. Maher interaction with one very vocal tea party spokespersons is worthy a short screed.

July 25, 2014 - On last night’s Real Time, Bill Maher took on two of his guests, a Republican and a libertarian, who were criticizing President Obama over his foreign policy. Maher challenged them to say exactly what Obama should be doing differently, and repeatedly emphasized that they should be specific in their criticisms. FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe acknowledged it’s not all Obama’s fault––Bush is partly to blame for the chaos in the world––but at the same time, he said, “this president has zero respect in the world.” When Maher asked what Obama should do, Kibbe said, “It’s called leadership.” 
Maher said, “Remember when I said be specific?” and added, “What the fuck does that mean?”
Republican Hogan Gidley jumped in to say Obama refuses to act like a strong leader would, such as naming Putin “as a bad actor in the planes coming down.” Maher repeatedly pressed him on what Obama should do, and when Gidley didn’t directly answer, he cries, “You keep veering off the point of what we should be doing!”

“This president has zero respect in the world!” 

After sitting quietly while George W Bush ruined our national and took us to the lowest levels of international respect, the Tea Party leader dared "go there."

“It’s called leadership."
