Debate: Obama’s Big Name Donor Says ‘Looks Like He Took My Million & Spent it All on Weed’

“Uhmmm…teleprompter, PLEASE!”

Adoring, staunch Obama fan and MILLION dollar donor to his reelection fund, Bill Maher, mocked the President’s horrific Denver debate debacle on his HBO program last night:

“I’m sorry, he sucked. He looked tired. He had trouble getting his answers out. Looks like he took my million and spent it all on weed!” – Bill Maher

Maher debate night tweet:

Presidential debate Oct 3, 2012: Obama, the navel-gazer…

In spite of all the post-debate lies coming from sucker-punched Obama and cohorts that Romney lied, Governor Romney’s preparation, performance, and facts/truth sharing was outstanding. Michael Reagan said again today on FOX News, “Romney gave the best debate performance since LINCOLN.”

Here’s the truth: When Maher continues to blister Obama, you know it’s bad… really bad.

Stay on offense, Gov, and do. not. let. up.

You’ve got them running scared.

Gov Mitt Romney Praises President Reagan: A Legacy of Optimism, Strength (USA Today)

President Ronald Reagan would have been 100 years old on February 6, 2011. With news of a historic, year long, soon-to-begin Centennial Celebration being planned by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, son Ron Reagan’s new book, My Father at 100, revealing his controversial opinion that president Reagan had Alzheimer’s disease while in office, son Michael Reagan’s countering that the issue of his father’s health should not tarnish his legacy, and the announcement of the first GOP presidential debate to be held at the Ronald Reagan Library this spring, President Reagan has certainly been in the national spotlight as of late. Even President Obama, in his not-so-subtle slide to the center, wrote about Reagan’s ‘Morning in America’ attitude and his transformational presidency.

This morning, in USA Today, Governor Mitt Romney writes of President Reagan’s legacy of optimism and strength:

An “amiable dunce” is what Washington super-lawyer Clark Clifford once called President Reagan.

That was the conventional wisdom among liberals back then. But opinions, at least in some important quarters, have shifted. Campaigning for the presidency, Barack Obama paid tribute to our 40th president’s remarkable achievements. Ronald Reagan, he said, “changed the trajectory of America in a way that Richard Nixon did not, that Bill Clinton did not.” He put “us on a fundamentally different path.”

I agree with President Obama. Ronald Reagan was a transformative president.

America entered the Reagan era as one kind of country and exited it another. His mixture of extraordinary personal and political qualities made it possible. One must begin with his sunny disposition: cheerful conservatism in flesh and blood. The Gipper’s irrepressible high spirits tapped into something deeply rooted in the country: optimism, faith in America itself.

Reagan came to occupy the White House in a moment of national crisis, not altogether dissimilar from the one we face today. broad, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan had brought the Cold War to the boiling point. Islamic radicals in Iran humiliated our country in a 444-day hostage drama.
At home, the misery index — the sum total of unemployment and inflation — had reached a post-war high. Jimmy Carter, shivering in the under-heated White House, was complaining about American “malaise.”

Reagan would have none of this. His policies, foreign and domestic, reflected his optimistic spirit. He confronted the Kremlin frontally. He initiated a military buildup that outmatched the USSR, challenged it in Afghanistan, and launched the Strategic Defense Initiative that is now vital to our defense.

Governor Romney then proceeds to underscore President Reagan’s indomitable, positive approach to solving America’s formidable foreign and domestic challenges with strength and forthrightness.

Here at home, Reagan saw a federal government that had become, like a diseased heart, enlarged and sclerotic. Paving a path trod today by the Tea Party, he sharply cut taxes to restore economic growth. He took painful measures to rein in double-digit inflation. He fought to cut federal spending. He sought to restore our Founding Fathers’ vision of American greatness and limited government.

Anyone familiar with Governor Romney knows he has frequently spoken and written about our nation’s current woes with similar optimism. In his book No Apology: The Case for American Greatness, Romney provides in-depth analysis on economic and security threats from foreign nations, why America’s national advantages have eroded, and outlines how fresh, creative, bold ideas will strengthen America and preserve our global leadership.

As some did with President Reagan, some underestimate Gov Romney. As the Centennial Celebration unfolds this year, along with an almost 99% certainty of a Romney candidacy for president, we’ll have plenty of opportunity to celebrate our 40th President and to promote and enjoy the man who impeccably exemplifies Reagan’s ideals and unwavering optimism, who has the knowledge and strength of experience to assure us that it can be ‘morning in America’ again… Mitt Romney.

1//11/01 - Tournament of Roses Parade (Pasadena, CA) awards 'Best Depiction of Life in U.S. Past, Present, or Future' to float depicting Ronald Reagan's life.


The commemorative Ronald Reagan float was 55 feet long and 26 feet high. It featured 11 larger-than-life photos of ‘iconic’ moments in his life that were made of rice and poppy seeds. Former First Lady Nancy Reagan helped select the photos. NOTE: CLICK ON IMAGE TO MAKE LARGER
