Fantastic video, Stewart is spot on with this issue and easily pointed out the hypocrisy. And like I expected, this video was followed by nine pages of comments from right wingers basically ignoring everything he said and then ranting about how wrong Stewart is.

Yep. And they don't even recognize how they're being used/milked. Pandering to them nets Stewart an annual $25 million income. He's laughing all the way to the bank...

When they realized their voters are stupid enough to fall for it.

Democrats are having lots of issues at the moment..

They continue to proclaim the economy is improving by citing the growth in GDP, but they ignore the facts behind the increase.

For example, from 2009-2010, the nations GDP increase was 2.3%, Democrats shout yaaaa, the economy is improving, while they ignore that the top 1% seen their incomes grow 11.6% while the 99% of the nation, only increased by .2.

This is how you can tell they got nuthin' else to disguise their greed.
On that basis Warren Buffett is yet another wealthy hypocrite, he has been at the forefront of addressing inequalities.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are both incredibly clever and funny. True story--a hardcore tea party relative doesn't like Jon Stewart's show--too liberal, but does like Stephen Colbert's show because he thinks Colbert is serious. You really need a sense of humor to get these guys and anyone who takes their politics seriously and personally will probably be offended. Their ability to point out and magnify hypocrisy in an extremely humorous way is fairly unique on television.

I don't think you can call it a rant if he had 20 writers write it for him. lol A rant comes from you, it isn't contrived by others.
Must not know much about Mr. Stewart.

Jon Stewart is a huge hypocrite. Not only is he also filthy rich, but he is only so because he reads jokes off a screen that his staff wrote. Why is it wrong for a business owner working hard and making a good profit?

The Daily Show has gone down hill, it happened ever since the election. The show, along with the Colbert Report, is nothing more than liberal preaching for a young and naive liberal audience. I know that he likes to say '' it's just comedy '' but the reality is that his show has a huge influence on younger voters. And anyone who gets their '' news '' from his show shouldn't be voting in the first place.
