Today we have a Jon Stewart double header!
When I started watching this video, I was worried that it was another example of where liberals bemoan it when Democratic politicians won’t play hardball like the Republicans do, but then attack those same Democratic politicians when they do play hardball.
But then Jon Stewart pulls it off brilliantly at the very end.
I’m curious what other people think. Did Harry Reid step over the line with this one? Or is it about time someone threw back at the Republicans the kind of crap they have been dishing out for a long time (e.g., birth certificate, death panels, swift boating, ad nauseum).
I also note that Romney’s responses seem to be very carefully phrased. Reid was talking about Romney paying federal income taxes, but Romney responded that he has always paid taxes. Well, yes, if you live in most states, you pay sales taxes, property taxes, etc. Has Romney said whether he always paid federal income taxes?
