Maher: Obama Knows "For The Sake Of Black America He Needs The Second Term"
"I think the second term for Obama is more important, even than the first. Obviously it was important to get the first black president elected. But, if the first black president only has one term, America reads that as a failure. This is what the right wing hopes and prays for more than anything else, that America looks at this one-term president and goes, â€˜We tried a black guy, but it just didnâ€™t work,'" Bill Maher said on this week's broadcast of his HBO show "Real Time."
"And Obama is aware of that. That is why, I think, he is so conservative in the first term. He knows for the sake of black America he needs the second term," he said.
