Post-Partisan Obama Hit With 'Express Train of Bile,' Piers Morgan Mourns
A well-intentioned President Obama tried to transcend partisanship in Washington, but his efforts were derailed by an "express train of bile" – according to CNN's Piers Morgan, on Wednesday.
And Americans need ObamaCare because "Baboons take care of themselves better than we do," ranted Morgan's sharp-spoken guest, comedian Lewis Black.

"I mean Obama, to be fair to him, when he came in to power, he said look, I'm going to try to change all of this partisan crap that's going on," sounded Morgan. "What he's found is he can't at the moment. I mean, it's like he's up against this express train of bile."
Black ranted that "our biggest problem is health care. Baboons take care of themselves better than we do in this country." Morgan then stood up for Obama against his health care critics, saying he "just can't understand" why people despised Obama over his health care plan.
"He brought 30 million more Americans into a health care plan who couldn't afford it," Morgan touted. "And everyone says you suck as a president. I didn't get it."

A transcript of the segment, which aired on September 28 at 9:30 p.m. EDT, is as follows:
MORGAN: I mean Obama, to be fair to him, when he came in to power, he said look, I'm going to try to change all of this partisan crap that's going on. I'm going to try and do it a better way. What he's found is he can't at the moment. I mean, it's like he's up against this express train of bile. And he can't get anything done. So he's now having to get angry. Ironically, he's now taking a leaf out of your book.
BLACK: No, he finally had to stand up and go, enough is enough. Part of the problem was I think he picked that – the thing that we have – our biggest problem is health care. Baboons take care of themselves better than we do in this country. So by starting with health care, it just, like, everything went into place.
MORGAN: I just can't understand why he got so despised for doing that. He brought 30 million more Americans into a health care plan who couldn't afford it. And everyone says you suck as a president. I didn't get it. Why does that make you a bad president?
BLACK: Well, because they didn't sit down and talk to the Republicans and do whatever it is that the Republicans think that they wanted. And then – but look at this group. You've got Eric Cantor, you know, who's basically saying, you know, we're not going to give the money, the FEMA money out until we cut money out of the budget. That's – I mean, how nasty a person can you be?
And he got – Virginia got hit, he – you know, when they tried to do that to him, he voted against it. Come off it. You know, we've got to be able to speak to each other at some point. I don't understand what – I don't understand what people who are Democrats or Republicans hear.
