Politics & Business | Jon Stewart Blasts GOP For Shutting Down Government

And so it happened. The government shut down at midnight this morning — the first in 17 years. And who’s to blame? That’s right, the GOP. On last night’s Daily Show, main man Jon Stewart held nothing back when blaming the Republicans for our government’s current crisis; aka the House Republicans’ one-sided fight to stop The Affordable Care Act a.k.a. Obamacare.

“You’re just throwing words together,” he exclaimed in response to a montage of Republicans rattling off their love of the Constitution to show their hatred of Obamacare, and then those lawmakers blasting Obama for failing to compromise. “It’s a f**king law!” he said, pointing out that all three branches of government had thus far upheld the law. (Huff Post)

In a pretty good effort to further explain his argument, he went on to compare the government shutdown to the Giants’ losing season.

“Did you see the Giants game on Sunday?” he asked. “They lost 31-7. Do you know what the Giants didn’t say after that game? ‘If you don’t give us 25 more points by midnight on Monday, we will shut down the f**king NFL.'”

Lol, that was funny. But even more, the political comedian went on to state very clear facts that even us regular people are aware of (regarding a simple fact that the POTUS can make negations with Russian & Iran):

You’re not helping yourself. If it turns out that President Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hardline, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world, but not with Republicans, maybe he’s not the problem.
