As the subject on the most recent installment of "Real Time" moved to the retirement of Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, the HBO host actually said that it was the Republican Party that has changed in the past thirty or forty years and not Stevens' view of the world.
BILL MAHER, HOST: You know what's ironic is that you know who's really a moderate Republican by '70s standards? Barack Obama.
GRAYSON: It's true.
MAHER: Barack Obama, you know, I mean, I'm glad he's getting this financial reform package through but it does not include something that I think we would all think is the main point of it. I'm not an economist but I do understand the phrase "too big to fail," which means banks are just too big. Like 20 years ago the top six banks had like seventeen percent of the business of Americans and now they have like 63 percent. That bill does not address too big to fail. Just like the healthcare bill did not have a public option. It was more like the bill that Bob Dole tried to get through when he was dealing with the Clintons in 1994. A liberal Democrat so-called like Barack Obama today is really a moderate Republican of yesteryear.
