Jon Stewart rips Republican fear-mongering over Obama: ‘You have lost your d*mn mind’

On his show Wednesday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart lampooned Republican politicians who demonized President Barack Obama in 2008 as a radical socialist who was weak on terrorism.

He noted Obama had failed to live up to many of the campaign promises that his opponents made for him, like “completely socializing” the economy, letting radical Islamists dance in the streets, taking away Americans right to bear arms, and “eliminate freedom of speech” for radio show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.

- snip -

Stewart then played a number of clips of Republican politicians engaging in the same kind of hyperbolic rhetoric they had used in 2008.

“Ya’ll have lost your damn mind,” he said. “If Obama hasn’t been able to pull any of that shit off during the first term of his presidency, what is he waiting for?”

It turns out, Obama’s whole first term was just laying the trap.

rather than ripping Dems.

4. You have to have a damn mind to lose first. I doubt they have 3 dessicated brain cells

between the whole lot of them.

Hannity and Limbaugh with duct tape over their mouths.
