Attention Jon Stewart: You’re Not Remotely Funny

mad-bro

********

Bob Cesca: Okay, yeah, the IRS scandal looks bad and the buck stops with the president. But anyone with a brain in his head and who doesn’t have an ax to grind knows that there’s no way the president could possibly micromanage two guys in the Cincinnati IRS office.

Jon Stewart spent his, what?, third consecutive night ripping the shit out the president. Last night, Stewart said Obama was either Nixon or Mr. Magoo. Nixon if he was involved, and Magoo if he wasn’t. Well that sounds fair.

Look, I know it’s important to maintain cred by occasionally kicking the president in the balls, but after three nights it’s really beginning to look obvious that you’re desperately doing it for cred and not for the patina of fairness.

Forbes: With the stock market hitting new highs, some people have already forgotten about the Great Recession. Recall 2009. Things looked pretty bleak economically. But the outlook has changed dramatically in just 4 years…. the President deserves attention for how well this economy has done during his leadership.

The auto rescue plan has worked. American car manufacturers are still dominant and employing millions directly and in supplier companies. Wall Street reform has been painful but it has re-instated faith amongst investors….

…. The deficit is now only 4% of the GDP, down from over 10% at the end of Bush’s administration …. major strides in health care reform – something no other President has accomplished – has given American’s more faith in their future, and an increased willingness to invest.

… By all measures, President Obama has outperformed every modern President.
