On The Daily Show Jon Stewart hammered Republicans for being classless and unstatesmanlike for their refusal to give Obama any credit for being right about Libya, and asked WTF is wrong with you people?
Here is the video from The Daily Show:
After playing clips of Fox News claiming that Obama might have caused instability by getting rid of Gadhafi, and that it could have been avoided if Obama would have acted sooner, Stewart said, “Is there no one? Is there no Republican that can be gracious and statesmanlike in this situation? We removed a dictator in six months, losing no American soldiers, spending like a billion dollars rather than a trillion dollars, and engendering what appears to be good will to people who now have a prideful story of their own independence to tell. Not to mention oil, they have oil.”
Jon Stewart then played clips of Republican Senators Marco Rubio, Chuck Grassley, and John McCain giving credit to the British and French for the independence of Libya to the British and French, not Obama. The Daily Show host said, “What the f**k is wrong with you people? Honestly, what’s wrong with you? Are you that small? Are you that, you know what else we really got to give credit to the Chinese. Without the invention of gunpowder, I don’t know. How bad was it? Keep your eyes on Steve Doocy when Gretchen throws to commercial on Fox and Friends.”
After playing the clip, Stewart continued, “Unless I’m mistaken here, Steve Doocy actually tried to console that woman as they left the segment. Hey kid, look on the bright side. Obama’s policies can’t be vindicated every day. By the way I’m no expert on body language, but I’m not sure she appreciated this.”
When the members of the Republican Party can’t put their partisanship aside for one day and acknowledge that President Obama was correct on Libya, it proves that Republicans are permanently putting politics ahead of country. The same people who blasted Obama for his Libya decision in the beginning, are not surprisingly now refusing to give him any credit when it turns out that he was right and they were wrong.
What kind of Americans would give credit to a foreign country before their own president?
We all know that Fox News gets depressed when things go right for Obama. Heck, I am surprised that the whole building wasn’t placed on suicide watch after the death of Bin Laden, but what kind of warped people are depressed because President Obama might get a little credit for getting rid of one of the most murderous dictators in the world. Gadhafi was also involved in funding multiple acts of terrorism that killed American citizens.
What is wrong with Republicans that they would rather see Gadhafi alive and murdering if it would mean that they could go on Fox News and call Obama a failure? If they can’t see that Libya is a better country and the world is a better place without Gadhafi in it, Jon Stewart really did say it best.
What the f**k is wrong with these people?
