Jon Stewart Rips GOP Hypocrisy Over Obama’s Bin Laden Ad
Posted on May 2, 2012
“The Daily Show” host took aim at some of his favorite targets Tuesday night as he ripped Republicans and conservative pundits for their hypocritical response to an ad aired by the Obama campaign that highlights the president’s success in bringing down Osama bin Laden one year ago. When it comes to pointing out the incongruities and hypocrisies of conservative political rhetoric, Jon Stewart is clearly the master.
It appears the main problem the Republicans have with the ad is that by “gloating about it” (or, to use a metaphor Jonah Goldberg brought up, spiking the football) in a campaign spot, the president is “politicizing” the event. Something, of course, the Republicans would never dream of doing, right? Cue Stewart. —TEB
