Tipping Point: Dennis Miller Decides "I Don't Like Obama, Because He Doesn't Like Me and 50% of the Country"

You might think, Big deal. Isn't Dennis Miller already against Obama?

Sure, but on policy. He has always before said "He's a good man, he means well in his heart," or that sort of thing.

Now he's decided he doesn't like him on a personal level, because, as he says, "Obama doesn't like me, and half the country."

The Jimmy Hoffa remarks are what did it for him.

He repeats the same AttackWatch-reportable lies on O'Reilly.

For a while pollsters have been noting that Obama's "favorable impression" numbers run nicely ahead of his job approval numbers. And, the theory goes, once his favorables drop, that would represent the ceiling on his possible top level of support.

I'm overstating things to say that Dennis Miller souring on Obama personally is part of a tipping point, probably. Still, data are made up of anecdotes.

Bonus: Jon Stewart calls Obama a clusterf***.

Actually he calls ObamaCare that, but pretty close. He also slams Congress. The Democratic Congress, I mean.

"I still don't know what he believes in," he says.

Stewart, 48, who's become one of the sharpest political and social observers in any medium since taking over the "Daily Show" in 1999, tells Bates: "Maybe that's my biggest issue with [Obama]: I'm not sure what he truly thinks is the right path, other than that he believes the wealthy should pay a little bit more of their fair share."

Stewart says he's sure the President is "pleased with what he's done," but adds: "I would have preferred to see something a little more transformative."

He also calls Obama's health-care plan a "2,000-page clusterf-k."

Asked to assess another cluster-you-know-what - the debt-ceiling debate - Stewart observes: "You can blame the intransigence of Tea Party Republicans all you want, but Democrats had a chance to pass a budget before they lost the midterm election.

"They didn't do it because they were afraid that those votes would cost them the House," Stewart continues. "They had the ability to avoid the entire f-ing thing. And they didn't do it, out of cowardice."
