WOW that question has so many levels. I'm sure you know he was a card carrying Libertarian for a long long time until W came along. I've been watching since he started on Comedy Central except for the horrible censored abc years where I believe, and of course this is just a bewildered fan's theory, he decided that always telling the whole truth wasn't in his best interest. Yes, except for rare rants on breaking his MMJ promise, his Obama puppy love is sickening to watch at times but I don't fall for it. I have watched him too long and I am also awake to alot of things that are not mainstream beliefs and I refuse to believe that I know more than him. My best theory so far? He is in fear of Retaliation if he steps too far over the line. He hits hard on important issues in what has been coined his New Rules Rants but is truly laying low speaking anything too 'Politically Incorrect' otherwise. Your theory?
