Skip to comments.President Humiliates Jon Stewart

President Obamas appearance on the Daily Show turned into a major coup for his reelection campaign. Obama inverted host Jon Stewarts gibe about his response to the Benghazi attack with a crushing rebuttal.
Stewarts suggestion that the Administrations actions were confused and not optimal seemed to unnerve the President at first as he conceded that the death of four Americans in the attack was not optimal. However, the President landed a sound counter blow by pointing out that Stewart offered no better ideas of his own.
We can sit around and second-guess what we did all day, but can you say what you wouldve done in my place? the President asked. Unless youve got a better plan to offer why tear down what Ive done?
Stewarts reply perhaps allowing consulate security to have bullets in their guns or not ginning up some bogus excuse blaming a cheesy video was cut short when CNNs Candy Crowley emerged from the audience to declare that Ive got the transcript right here. The President is right on this. Lets move on to the next topic.
Thank you Candy, Obama said. I think what weve seen here tonight shows that there are two paths this nation can take. We could divisively question every step Ive taken to advance a progressive agenda for America. Or we can, as Ms. Crowley demonstrated, all pull together for the common good.
After the show, Crowley admitted that her intervention on behalf of the President had no factual basis. I dont see my role in life as just some sterile adjudicator of facts, she bragged. Our nations President was under attack. I couldnt sit by and let his credibility be destroyed. Coming to his aid is what any loyal citizen would do.

You almost had me on this one! Getting harder and harder to distinguish satire from reality!
Let’s be honest, it’s Mr. Crowley.
PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!
Let’s put a [[[FULL STOP]]] on the satire till after the election.
It is unnerving me!!!
(Yesterday’s piece about the Iranian’s dropping the nuclear program almost made me loose my lunch.)
"Of cuss' i' is mayt."
Should have added Obama shouting out “Can you say that a little louder, Candy?”
Right! well done lad!
On a side note and for the record: His correct formal name is Jon Failed-Actor Stewart.
” - - - Crowley admitted that her intervention on behalf of the President had no factual basis. I dont see my role in life as just some sterile adjudicator of facts, she bragged. Our nations President was under attack. I couldnt sit by and let his credibility be destroyed.”
And that is how the debate was “Crowleyed.”
