Jon Stewart Takes On Conservative Hypocrisy Over Romney Tax Returns (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"The Daily Show" has been keeping a close eye on Mitt Romney's tax return story, namely the fact that he won't provide the public with more than a few years' worth of documents.

The Obama campaign has suggested Romney has something to hide, while other camps are stating more plainly that the lack of disclosure "just looks bad."

"If democrats did want to be dicks about Romney's tax returns, the Republicans have given them a master class in how to do it," Stewart joked.
