Stewart: Blame Clinton, Not Bush (VIDEO)
Jon Stewart again had some fun at the expense of "Fox & Friends," who much to his delight, apparently watches "The Daily Show." The Fox News program was not pleased with David Axelrod's interview on Monday night, feeling Obama's advisor was blaming Bush for the lack of an oil spill solution.
Stewart pointed out that blaming a previous administration is nothing new, but often there are limitations as to how long into one's presidency it can be done. Something that apparently Republicans ignored during Bush administration, as they blamed Clinton over and over again. For close to EIGHT years. Yet, as the clips showed, numerous GOP members were outraged that the Obama administration would blame Bush.
After showing McCain break out the acronym B.I.O.B. (Blame it on Bush), Stewart made perhaps the joke of the night, firing back with an acronym of his own:
"H.R.W.A.T.P.T.R.T.C.I.T.G -- He really was a terrible president that ran the country into the ground."
Bringing the hypocrisy full circle, Stewart played a clip from "Fox and Friends" from just two weeks ago where they blamed Clinton policies for the oil spills, prompting Stewart to ask, "Do you realize that this sh-t is being broadcast?"
So while blaming Bush is now off-limits, Clinton is still fair game.
