David Letterman latest celebrity disappointed with President Obama

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

For the past four years, Obama has been known to rub more than a few elbows with celebrities. From birthday parties to fundraisers to late night TV appearances, Obama has certainly been around the Hollywood A-List. But some of the are starting to realize President Obama isn’t the great guy and uniting leader that he pretends to be. The latest to join the list is late night TV host David Letterman, who spared with MSNBC Host Rachel Maddow over Obama’s repeated lying about Romney’s stance on the auto bailout.

“Here’s what upset me last night: Playing fast and loose with facts,” Letterman told Maddow.

“Now, I don’t care whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth; you want the contender to be lying,” Letterman said to laughs from the audience. “And so what we found out today, or soon thereafter that, in fact, the President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece. I felt discouraged.”

“Because the ‘Let Detroit go bankrupt’ headline you feel like was inappropriate?” Maddow asked.

“Well, the fact the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he’s the president of course he’s right. Well, it turned out no, he was taking liberties with that,” Letterman said.

“The President has disappointed him because he’s lying about Mitt Romney. Very important” Glenn said.

Glenn has dedicated much of his time the past few weeks pointing out President Obama’s blatant lies in front of the American people. He feels that this behavior will eventually backfire on the candidate, and that people will start to see their true actions and character. Based on Letterman’s exchange, it may already by happening.

    Wow David, you took your head out of your lower orifice just long enough to see the truth, you’d better get it back up there lest you breathe the air of freedom too long.

    Is the “Letterman” seeing the “writing” on the wall?

    The President has been lying from the start of his Administration from vowing not to hire lobbyists to posting a bill online for 3 days before he signs it. And only now is Letterman seeing a lie? Looks like someone totally ignorant or covering his butt for 4 years of blindly insulting republicans as liars and evil people.

      Never forget who’s side he’s on. A liberal will do and say anything to get their way or get out of a mess of their own creation. I always think of William Jefferson Clinton whenever I make excuses for why someone would purposely lie.

    Since when does “nuance”=”lie”?

    When you tell a lie, you have to remember the lie that you told to keep your story straight.  When you tell so many lie It’s good to have a huge staff to help you keep it straight.  good thing the Pres has a huge staff.    Telling stories that misdirect, telling half truths are all just lies in and of themselves.

       To quote from a TV series Babylon 5 ” A half truth is the worst lie of all.”

    Even with her caveat, Maddow is wrong.  The private finance refused to commit capital UNLESS there was a structured bankruptcy to offload expenses that were making US car makers uncompetitive with their foreign competitors.  Obama ended up doing a form of government controlled bankruptcy, only instead of following the law (creditor vs. equity priority), he paid off his union crony buddies.  He stole from those that had provided private financing in the past to pay off the unions–how many times can you do that before providers of private finance learn their lesson and quit providing.  Wonder why big providers of financial capital aren’t willing to invest in this country and thereby create new jobs?  Maybe they’ve learned their lesson. What Maddow is saying is that no private finance was available for these failed companies unless they restructured in a way that didn’t fit Obama’s social agenda.  Good, that’s the way it’s supposed to be.   Instead, we delayed the failure of these companies for a couple of years at great taxpayer expense instead of solving the problem with a structured bankruptcy.  Is anyone else annoyed that the arguments from the left all seem to assume the rest of us have no finance experience?  Oh, I forgot, being in finance means you’re the enemy capitalist, so I guess they don’t care what my opinion is.

       Most average middle class Americans have NO idea what you are talking about, especially in Michigan. You forget we have a bunch of union dummies! Remember many retired or still in the “shops”  did not get their job because they had an education! All the unions have to do send a paper home and scare the dummies to death, even if it full of lies!

    Maddow is an idiot.  Private financing DID bail out select corporations like GM. Obama is stealing money from private producers to bail out GM, after nationalizing the company and stealing its ownership from the shareholders and handing it to the UAW.

    The difference is that those private parties, the American workers, were FORCED to rescue GM against their will. And to hand billions to Solyndra, Fisker, Brightsource, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac…

    Notice how Ford did not accept bailout money and is still going strong?

    All Obama is doing is PILLAGING private wage earnings to enrich corporations and crooks who donate to the Democrat Party.  It’s a huge scheme of wealth redistribution into Party coffers.

      Thank you for informing  the pinheads, you’re well informed and hopefully others will accept the truth. Mr. Romney strikes me as an honest man,

    Regardless of what Letterman says or feels about Obama, he’s going to vote for him anyway.  Integrity and honesty are very low priorities with many people especially with Liberals. 

    This morning on Fox and Friends a Conservative group in North Carolina was footing the balance of a gallon of gas so consumers were only paying $1.86 a gallon.  The Fox reporter spoke to a Democrat and she said she was on empty and “it was wonderful to pay only $1.86″.  The reporter then asked, “This was the price of gas when Obama took office.  Does this change your vote this year?” and her answer was, “No. I’m still voting for Obama.  I feel it takes two terms to get the economy back on track”.  Typical 47% Liberal mentality. 

    Thankfully there was one guy who was adamant about NOT voting for Obama again.  Hopefully NOBAMA WILL BE the shot heard around the nation!!!!

      Those in my family that still have two nickels left in our pockets are using them to get out the vote for Romney. Once in the booth, they can do what they wish, but we make them swear on their children. Let’s see what happens.
      I for one, am done with family members who stab those of us with wealth while knocking the means of wealth provided for them. Envy is a horrible emotion in families.

        “I for one, am done with family members who stab those of us with wealth while knocking the means of wealth provided for them”. 

        That’s Liberals in a nutshell, 2liberate.  Liberals who have exorbitant wealth, either earned or married into (e.g. John Kerry), are NEVER viewed as greedy.  Yet, Mitt Romney who earned and invested HIS OWN MONEY gives more in charitable donations than fellow Mormon Harry Reid, John Kerry, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Obama combined.

        And Obama who gets (he doesn’t earn) $400,000 a year to occupy the White House has offered nothing and has given ZERO to his half-brother, George Obama, or to his aunt.  Obama’s half-nephew (George’s son) was in the hospital and George needed money to pay the bill.  He asked Dinesh D’Souza for help and he sent $ to cover it.  When asked why George replied, “Because you are more a brother to me…”  What does say about Mr. Paying your fair share?  Obama’s aunt…well, she earns $.40 a day. 

        And if anyone wants to see Obama’s possible retirement home, just log onto this website http://www.usmessageboard.com/6043114-post8.html
        It will make you sick but it’s typical of a slob hitting the lottery. 

        While Obama contines to bash the wealthy, he and Michelle have repeatedly used this Country for its money.  And while Americans are struggling financially the Obamas have no shame; no qualms about taking numerous lavish vacations and playing 100+ rounds of golf ALL ON THE TAXPAYER DIME!

        I have never seen people with so much crass and so little class than the Obamas.  I am absolutely and thoroughly ashamed and disgusted to even admit he’s the POTUS.

    Now you know why their was such an urgency to remove the 10 Commandments from all public places…….  now in America at the highest level, lying, torture, and outright deception are the norm.

    • Sunshine Kid

       Yes, now the commandments for not lying nor stealing can be safely ignored by the elite leftists.

    Okay that’s great that Letterman is finally waking up and seeing Obama for what he really is,but why the hell did he allow Obama to be on his show once again???? Letterman can do us a big favor and endorse Romney. He needs more votes. As for Maddow…she is a total idiot. When she is on tv I change the channel. I do the same when Obama is on. Obama can lie right to Maddow’s face and she will still say he didn’t do it. Give me a break. All I can do is hope and pray that Obama doesn’t win.

    • Sunshine Kid

       Simple:  Letterman is looking for ratings, nothing more.  Obama is looking for more dead heads to vote for him, so why not use a humor show?

  • http://suzeraining.wordpress.com/ suz

    once again, letterman’s pissed bho did not elect to do his show right before the election.  BUT, that will change.

    • http://suzeraining.wordpress.com/ suz

      also, this is not a “see even letterman” situation.  he had rachel maddow with him while he ponders what the lie meant and this allows maddow to explain it while making it palatable for him and the audience to live w/the lie.  they do this so they (i.e., lame stream media) appear to have some credibility on an issue so the watchers can walk away still feeling okay w/bho. 

      the problem w/that strategy is what glenn mentioned on the tv show last night — that they don’t connect the dots and don’t care to.

      • Sunshine Kid

         Connecting dots on a humor show?  That’s a laugh all by itself!

        • http://suzeraining.wordpress.com/ suz

          alright so comedy shows are light-hearted and light-headed and bho knows it which is why he chooses to do them.

          i have been to a few of letterman’s shows.  i don’t leave my intelligence at the stage door.

    Page after page after page of Romney’s lies. 39 PAGES of lies Romney has told, and Beck has been obsessing over ONE lie that Obama is telling about Romney’s op-ed piece. Of course, that’s the job of a propagandist. Confuse, distract, cherry pick, lie, twist facts, turn reality upside down.  At that, Beck is a genius!

    Most of Obama’s followers care nothing about facts and wouldn’t know how to find the truth if they wanted to.
