The Daily Show host Jon Stewart says “the closer we get to the election, the dumber Mitt Romney appears to be getting.” LMAO! He made the remarks during a new segment he aired on his show, “Barack Obama is the luckiest dude on the planet.” He said no matter what disadvantages he faces as an incumbent during the stagnant economic recovery, he is surging in the polls. Stewart said that’s because Obama is running against a candidate who says uninsured Americans can always go to the emergency room for medical treatment and his 47 percent of Americans think they deserve a government handout.

Jon Stewart asked “how the hell did this guy even get the nomination?” Um, easy. The slate of Republican presidential candidates for this election cycle was a joke starting with Herman Cain, Mr. 9-9-9, whose campaign was side-lined when a stream of white women accused him of “questionable” behavior. Then there was Michele Bachmann who had a real problem getting the facts right and being truthful. She was sidelined over a lot of crazy-talk, including the claim that the HPV vaccination caused mental retardation in a young girl.

There was also the cowboy from Texas, who was billed as the next president of the US, until he opened his mouth and we realized standing next to George W. Bush, Bush had the brains. Perry could only say “oops” when he couldn’t name a third agency he would eliminate during a televised debate. Then the granddaddy of them all was Newt Gingrich, with his jump-off-turned-wife Callista Gingrich, claiming with a straight face that we should build a permanent American moon base.  So, Jon, the bar was set pretty low for Mitt Romney to rise to the top of this pack of misfits. If you ask me, Jon Huntsman was the most credible candidate on the stage, but he just couldn’t get the support he deserved.
