Jon Stewart deftly mocks Republicans for misquoting Obama
Once again, satirist Jon Stewart has masterfully CUT TO THE CORE of a raging political controversy:
On his show Wednesday night, Jon Stewart wondered if conservatives could be any more manipulative in their misrepresentation of words spoken by President Barack Obama.
“Mr. Romney, hanging your attack on a person’s slight grammatical misstep is what people do in an argument when they’re completely f—-ed and they know they have no argument,” he said.
During a recent speech, the President said: “Let me tell you something: If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
Romney and other conservatives have asserted that Obama was referring to businesses when he said “you didn’t build that.” However, the President’s full speech makes it clear that he was referring to American infrastructure — roads and bridges. Obama continued, saying “the point is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.”
