Kathleen Sebelius’ Incoherent Defense of Obamacare’s Design on The Daily Show

By: Tuesday October 8, 2013 12:10 pm

Sebelius’s excuse is not an argument against going to single-player, this is an argument for why you should have gone for single-payer. If the Republicans are going to completely freak out regardless, there is no reason to compromise. The political response from the GOP will be the same.

Jon Stewart Takes On STOCK Act Repeal

By: Thursday April 25, 2013 9:30 am

As was previously reported, President Obama and Congress gutted the insider trading regulations on Congress. Like a thief in the night Congress and the White House did nothing to call attention to themselves as they stealthily removed key provisions of the STOCK Act covering executive and congressional staffers disclosing their finances.

Other than FDL, a few other independent media outlets, and watchdog groups no one seemed to think the story was a big deal or even a story at all.

Obama’s Pathetic Answer to Jon Stewart’s Question on Continuation of Bush National Security Policies

By: Friday October 19, 2012 4:13 pm

In his effort to appear on as many morning and late night shows before Election Day, President Barack Obama appeared on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart last night. Stewart talked to him about his record, his first debate performance, whether his candidacy’s strength is that he is not as bad as GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, what he would like to do in his second term and his administration’s response to the attack in Benghazi. He was also directly asked about the continuation of national security policies that were the hallmark of the administration of President George W. Bush.

Obama Gets a HAMP Question… On The Daily Show

By: Friday October 19, 2012 6:45 am

President Obama appeared on the Daily Show last night, and Jon Stewart confronted him with the “H” word. It’s not one that comes up much in Obama’s presence; I can’t remember the last time, in fact. But last night, he had to answer for HAMP.

NSA Whistleblower Thomas Drake on The Daily Show

By: Tuesday August 7, 2012 7:30 am

A “Daily Show” clip with correspondent Jason Jones aired last night on “super spy” Thomas Drake, who worked for the National Security Agency as an analyst until he was ultimately charged as “a spy” under the Espionage Act for blowing the whistle on the NSA. The segment nicely plays up the fact he did not commit espionage and, instead, was a “cost-benefit analysis expert,” who had examined two intelligence gathering programs and decided one was cheaper and would lead to less fraud, waste, abuse and illegalities.

Colbert SuperPAC Goes on the Air in South Carolina

By: Saturday January 14, 2012 1:00 pm

Last night, Colbert closed his announcement with the words “Thank you, God bless you, and God bless Citizens United.” Nobody has done more to show how ludicrous our campaign finance system has become. If it leads to a reassessment of the system, his SuperPAC money will have been money well spent.
