"President Bush has been adamant that on matters of Iraq, he will defer to the wisdom of his generals," said Jon Stewart on Monday's Daily Show, prior to playing a brief soundbite of Bush declaring that he's "not an expert."

"No. No, he's not," commented Stewart, before serving up examples of Bush mentioning some of the many things he's not an expert in.

"I've got experts in my government, however," said Bush in another clip, to which Stewart responded with clips of Secretary Rumsfeld saying, "I'm not an expert," and Secretary Gates saying, "I'm no expert on Iraq," plus a string of similar clips from other Bush appointees.

The following video is from Comedy Central's Daily Show broadcast on July 23.
