Jon Stewart takes on John Sununu and the Recovery Plan

Jon Stewart takes on John Sununu,(R) former Congressman from NH. He asks him about the Recovery Plan and how the republicans seem to have suddenly become so fiscally responsible.

Trying to get him to explain how Bush took a surplus in the budget and turned it into a deficit, and how he pushed through a 1.3 trillion dollar tax cut and there sure wasn't this much pissing and moaning from the republicans or the democrats.

At least I sure don't remember it. That's the last time we were in a recession. When they claim he inherited it, although it started in March of 2001.

Take a listen, it is pretty good. I still have to ask, where is our media?? Why do they not ask these questions?? Why do they just let the republicans rattle on and on about how this is such a huge waste of money and it is going to make the deficit grow, yet they never talk about how Bushes tax cuts and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan did the exact same thing.

Please don't misunderstand me, I support our troops, and I was 150% behind going after the cowards that attacked us on 9-11, however they were not in Iraq and I have never, ever supported that war.

That was Bushes war, it was a wrong war and it wasted money, lives and blood that didn't need to be wasted. It has cost us in so many ways. It is a HUGE part of why we are in the mess we are in. Jon Stewart believes that

We need more comedians & satirists in Congress (as opposed to *jokers*
