Jon Stewart had a tough look at Thursday’s speeches by President Barack Obama and former Vice President Dick Cheney on national security. Stewart compared some of Obama’s phrasing to the words of former President George W. Bush. “I love it when he does the Bush covers,” snarked Stewart.
Cheney also got his fair share of criticism from Stewart. Cheney had said that there was “no middle ground” between his national security policies and the policies of Obama. Cheney proudly trumpeted, “On our watch, they never hit this country again.”
“Isn’t it incredible how success is defined by the one thing you succeeded at,” noted Stewart.
