Bill Maher: 'Obama is a Terrible Negotiator - Does He Not Even Know a Jew?'

HBO's Bill Maher is very unhappy with how President Obama is dealing with Republicans on the current budget impasse.

On Friday's "Real Time," the host said, "He is a terrible negotiator - does he not even know a Jew?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

BILL MAHER: Obama said this week, I heard him a couple of times saying, “You know what? We met the Republicans what they asked, and then we gave them more.” That’s like your lawyer saying to you, “You know, I went into the chambers with the judge and the prosecutor, and my first offer was 40 years to life for you. And I think I can get your tailgating charge moved up to manslaughter. And that’s my first offer.” What is wrong with these people? He is a terrible negotiator. Does he not even know a Jew?

Moments later, in a sketch about shows that could replace the exiting Glenn Beck on Fox News, Maher suggested Joe Lieberman do a program called, "Morning Jew."
