Jon Stewart Mocks Obama’s New Ambassadors to Argentina and Hungary (Colleen Bell) … Then Shreds WH Spox Josh Earnest’s Lame Comments
Jon Stewart of The Daily Show has been on a roll lately ripping the Obama administration. Then again, he has had so much material. What is sad, all he is doing is repeating what happened. Two new ambassadors, hand picked by Barack Obama,have been approved by the Senate. Their credentials you ask? None. America’s new ambassador to Argentina doesn’t even speak Spanish and the new ambassador to Hungary is a former soap opera producer, who has admitted not knowing what the US interests are in that region of the world. Because she did so well during the confirmation hearing. But they certainly bundled campaign cash for Obama.
Yesterday, we showed you Press Secretary Josh Earnest’s lackluster response to being grilled on the matter by ABC’s Jon Karl. But just how confounding was that response? On Wednesday’s “Daily Show” with Jon Stewart, the host stopped everything to scream out his disapproval.
To recap, when Karl pushed on the pair’s credentials and how it seems their greatest skill is their ability to raise funds for Obama, Earnest responded, “Frankly, I was not part of this decision-making process.”
Stewart was dumbfounded.
“What?! You can’t do that!” he yelled. “That is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen the president’s press secretary do. His entire job — his only job — is built around trying not to go, ‘Hey, look, I just fu***ng work here.’ But that’s what he did! ‘Take it up with my supervisor! Earnest, out.’”
Jon Stewart Slams Barack Obama on Immigration … Didn’t Obama Previously Says, ‘I’m Not the Emperor of The United States’
LOOKS LIKE OBAMA THINKS HE IS THE EMPEROR OF THE UNITED STATES …
Wow, even Comedy Channel’s Jon Stewart mocked Barack Obama for his flip-flop on his, “I am not an Emperor,” in taking executive action on immigration. In 2013 Obama was telling people who could not change immigration alone as that is not how the US Constitution worked and he was not the Emperor of the United States. As Stewart amusingly opined, “all it took was one bad midterm election” for Obama to go from “I’m not an emperor” to, well, this.
Jon Stewart took a shot at President Obama tonight for promising executive action on immigration over a year after saying he can’t because he’s not an “emperor.”
Stewart found it amusing that “all it took was one bad midterm election” for Obama to go from “I’m not an emperor” to, well, this.
“My job is to execute laws that are passed and Congress right now has not changed what I consider to be a broken immigration system,” Obama said. “I’m the president of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States.”
Stewart said, though, that it only took “one bad midterm election” for the president to totally change his tune and abandon his initial “I’m not the emperor” sentiment.
But Republicans weren’t immune to Stewart’s critiques either, as he went after numerous politicians and talking heads during the segment.
EXIT QUESTION: How on earth does this man justify his actions when his own words states the contrary?
Daily Show’s Jon Stewart Rips Obama and Democrats in Post 2014 Midterm Election Analysis … ‘Chickensh*t’ Dems, Obama Played Very Cynical Midterm Politics
The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart properly names the Democrats 2014 midterm election strategy … the ‘D*ckless H. Chickensh*t’ gambit.
Ha, Ha, Ha … I don’t agree with Jon Stewart that often, but he pretty much nailed this one. Democrats ran away from issues in red states that they thought were harmful to them and could cost them the elections. In the end they lost those states anyhow.
The “Daily Show” host went on to posit that the tactic was an intentional one used by the Democrats as a means to protect themselves in the midterm elections.
“Senate Democrats wanted to avoid votes on contentious issues, so they wouldn’t have to take unpopular [stances] that might cost them reelection and they got the president to go along with it,” Stewart said. “It’s a well-known political maneuver known as the ‘chickens**t gambit.’ It’s named, of course, for Senator Dickless H. Chickens**t.”
He concluded by accusing Democrats of adopting a do-nothing strategy and avoiding acting on what voters elected them to do.
Comedian Jon Stewart shredded President Barack Obama during his program Monday night, accusing him and his minions of acting “chaotic and confused” on how to deal with the Islamic State. Maybe the youth will now understand that Obama is a complete screw up.
Stewart concluded by pointing out a key difference between the Obama and Bush administrations: the Bush administration was “incredibly disciplined and focused” in doing the wrong thing, while the Obama administration is doing the right thing, but couldn’t be more “chaotic and confused” about it.

Jon Stewart of The Daily Show Doesn’t Blame Toxic Political Discourse For Arizona Jared Loughner Shooting Massacre
The Democrats might want to learn some thing from the Daily Shows, Jon Stewart.
As reported at Mediaite, Jon Stewart appears to be the voice of reason as Democrats try and play party politics with the terrible events of the Tucson, AZ shooting massacre at the hands of crazed gunman Jared Loughner. Instead of doing his usual satirical dialogue, Stewart addressed his audience and discussed the henious actions of a gunman who killed six, wounded many and left US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in critical condition. Stewart went so far as to tell his audience to concentrate on the positive and the heroic actions that came from his tragedy, rather than focus on the negative and speculation.
Jon Stewart did not blame the toxic political discourse or the vitriol, “prejudice and bigotry”as some have claimed for the shooting, although he stated that such rhetoric is not productive to finding solutions to issues and problems. There is a responsibility of those involved in political debate. I have to commend Jon Stewart for his reserved, thoughtful and well thought out remorseful, yet positive dialogue in dealing with such a heinous and deadly act. It is a far crime from those on the LEFT have been doing either in print, web, cable or even politicians. Stewart even made an “enemies” reference which is a direct shot at President Obama who called Republican opponents “enemies”.
I do think that its important for us to watch our rhetoric, I do think that its a worthwhile goal not to conflate our political opponents with our enemies if for no other reason than to draw a better distinction between the manifestos of paranoid mad men and what passes for acceptable political and pundit speak. It would be really nice if the ramblings of crazy people didn’t in any way resemble how we actually talk to each other on TV. Let’s at least make troubled individuals easier to spot.
Is it any wonder why so many have rejected the LEFT’s spin that the actions of Jared Loughner were caused by toxic political discourse? The LEFT cannot even spin the very people who are their demographic.
