|The Daily Show with Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
Cognitive dissonance. Frankly, I suspect that's pretty much permanent in Republican brains, don't you think?
I commented on this yesterday, about Mitt Romney trying to take the credit for bailing out the U.S. auto industry, but Jon Stewart does such a great job with it here.
And, yeah, I suppose Romney will be taking the credit for killing Osama bin Laden next, huh?
PS. Doonesbury had these quotes on its website this morning. I think they're pretty much self-explanatory:
"If General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye."
-- Mitt Romney, 2008
"Bailout of enterprises that are in trouble, that's not the way to go. I know President Bush started it with the auto industry. I thought it was a mistake."
-- Mitt Romey, 2009
"I pushed the idea of a managed bankruptcy, and finally when that was done, and help was given, the companies got back on their feet. So, I'll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry has come back."
-- Mitt Romney, 2012
