Outspoken On The Record host Greta Van Susteren blasted President Obama, along with his senior campaign strategist David Axelrod, for what she sees as the clear double standard relating to Bill Maher's history of misogynistic comments and Rush Limbaugh's remarks about Georgetown agitator Sandra Fluke.
On her blog Thursday, Greta lampooned the president for "looking the other way" and keeping Maher's $1 million contribution to the Obama Super PAC. She asked if that was the president's "price tag for decency."
She also tore into Axelrod's slated appearance on Bill Maher's Real Time -- directly after he criticized Mitt Romney for not condemning (to his degree of satisfaction) Limbaugh.
From Greta Wire:
Is everyone for sale? At least Ed Schultz and Rush Limbaugh apologized (which I think appropriate) for their boorish behavior and their boorish behavior is nothing like Bill Maher! Maher is a serial pig. And Maher, to get cover for continuous vile behavior, gives a million dollars to the Obama super Pac so that the President looks the other way and the President does. Go figure! Is that the Obama price tag for decency? Give a million and you can be as nasty to women as you want? How does President Obama – who dragged his daughters into this, I did not – handle this with his daughters when Maher is the quintessential woman degrader? The C word to women – Maher’s apparent favorite – is as vile as it gets. Do you wonder if the Obama campaign is laughing with Bill Maher? Or worse…laughing at Americans?
Greta adds a "PS" in which she says Maher "can’t hide behind, 'I am comedian.'"
"Being a comedian is not license to be a bigot or degrade women. Seinfeld is more successful and never degrading," she concluded.
Needless to say, many will cheer Greta's candor in exposing the hypocrisy of the left, and in this particular instance, the administration.
