Maher: Obama "a Dismal Failure and a Liar"

The comedian made the comments in reference to Obama's drug policies.


HBO's Bill Maher on Tuesday blasted President Barack Obama over his administration's decision to ramp up prosecutions of medical marijuana dispensaries.

"This is one place where Obama has been such a dismal failure and a liar," Maher said during aninterview with The Huffington Post's new HuffPost Live video streaming channel.

"Now, we all understand why the first black president couldn't get into the White House and immediately go, 'Hey, let's spark it up.' I'm hopeful in the second term when he has nothing to fear in the future, he can be honest about this issue the way that he finally became honest about gay marriage and certain other issues. He's come around."
