Stewart is such a socialist tool....

And Dobbs allows it.

No one mentioned the simple fact that we can't afford government heath care.

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

Why didn't Lou Dobbs support

Ron Paul?

I just love the whole

I just love the whole concept of being a slave to the majority opinion. Gives me tingles.

it's a false inference, jon

although there are polls out there that indicate a majority wants a public option, that is not indicative of them wanting government-run health care.

suppose you oppose the death penalty. if you also supported more humane ways to kill somebody, this doesn't mean you support capital punishment. it just means, given the circumstances, you would prefer a more way of putting somebody to death -- and nothing on your opinion on capital punishment.

indeed, polls even show that more than 50% of the people do not even think the government should be in charge of running health care.

so, stewart is implying a false inference.

I wish Stewart would let Lou

I wish Stewart would let Lou talk. But I also agree that it "appears" that people are only going revolutionary since Obama took office.

Now we all know that's not true here on the DP. We've been doing our thing for quite some time, before Obama took office. And many of you, even longer then that.

But it can't be denied that we have a lot people piling on the bandwagon, specifically neocons and rinos, not because we've convinced them. But because they have hate Democrats, the Democrat's administration, and Obama. Perhaps in their head, they hate socialism and fascism and a bunch of other "isms", yet they are so blind that they can't see those very same things being produced by their own party.

It get's a little fuzzy at times, because a lot of DPers hate Obama too. Which is fine. The key difference between a neocon hating Obama, and a tried and true DPer that hates what Obama stands for, is that we are able to show that their is no differece between the mainstream Republican and Democrat parties, both are damaging our country, and the people. And it's been going on for decades.

I can make very cogent arguments about how both typical Republicans and Democrats have utopian ideals, that they believe should be uniformly applied not only across the entire country, one size fits all, but the entire planet. That's fascism and these damn fools don't even know it!!!! And a large number of supporters in both parties would see their world view pushed on others through an ironfist if need be...

They are in complete denial of that...

That was the first time

I have seen Jon Stewart talk over his guest. Usually he lets his guest speak his point of view, regardless of whether he agrees with him or not. He wasn't letting Lou get a word in edgewise. He didn't want Lou to tell him that the problems started way back when and that he has been talking about them and a lot of people have been talking about them before Obama. Let's not let the liberal people out there who don't watch anything but Jon Stewart think there might be something behind all of this outrage.

I do agree with Jon, however. Where were most of the conservative Republicans when the Patriot Act was voted on and all of the executive orders Bush made them gave him the power of a dictator? Where were they when they were voting on the bank bailouts? There was no real outrage until it was a Democratic administration doing the dirty work.


"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5,6


The lip of truth shall be established forever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment...Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are His delight. Prov 12:19,22

John Stewart starting to sound like Hannity.

He just bombarded Lou with his opinion and never gave him a chance to make a point. Its funny but I remember during the bush years I thought conservative media were idiots and liberal media kinda had the right idea. Now it has completely flipped. Liberal media seem like idiots ala the "teabagger" blitz, and conservative media seems to have the gist of the right idea. It's all one big game.. whatever party is in power the other part and their media talking heads pretend to agree with the american public. It has never been more apparent to me that this is the case. It's blatant.

Ignorance is bliss (or dangerous?)

John Stewart made it sound like congress can do anything it pleases, as long as a majority of Americans agree with them. No mention of the limitations placed on the federal government by the Constitution. Is he really that ignorant with regard to the founding principals of this nation? I lost allot of respect for Mr. Stewart by watching this interview. All men are created equal means that "we have to help people". ??? The way that he said that leads me to believe that he meant Marxism. The applause that Mr. Stewart was getting in response to his comments gives me a heavy heart.

I believe the only reason that he mentioned Congressman Paul is because he always gets applause when he does it. He doesn't appear to have any real understanding of what Ron Paul stands for.

Corporate media strikes again.

The majority of people that understand

that govt intervention in anything is a BIG expensive wrecking ball just want them the hell out of health care. IT and IT alone is the reason that HEALTHCARE is so expensive, well that and the lobbys that brought them into it in the first place. along with the insurance lobby. Can we see the amoral calculus at work here.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow


The reason why i don't think that is correct is because Stewart has interviewed the doctor at least partly understands his positions because he read End the Fed. He is trying to make the point that much of the tea parties and the recent resurgence of support for limited government, free markets, and the change in the language of Fox anchors to "opposition to tyranny" seems phony because it should have been started a long time ago.

Stewart is trying to say that he does not buy excuses such as the health care proposals, cap and trade, and 2nd amendment rights as to why the mentality has shifted so quickly. I am confused as to why Dobbs didn't bring up the bailout and the economic situation because that seems to be a stronger motivator for why people are protesting and why people like Beck have changed their tones in the last few months.

I think that Stewart makes a good point because by mentioning the doctor, he is pointing out that there have been people speaking out against this for a much longer time, whereas the run of the mill neocons populating a lot of these tea parties across the country really are fair-weather fans of the government and probably wouldn't be protesting if McCain had won and was enacting all of the exact same policies.

I wish Stewart would take off his blue team hat and realize that this type of behavior is also manifested by the phony blue team anti-war protesters that used to exist.

Great analysis.

I agree.

Can anyone get this up on



hope millions that voted for O-bomb-a watched this and google Ron Paul.

2nd amendment?

Did Stewart say the Obama administration has made no move on the 2nd amendment?

Didn't they recently agree to some treaty to uphold UN laws for gun control?

Probably shouldn't be replying if I can't say exactly what I'm referring to.

Can anyone better informed comment?

Answer for Jon Stewart:

The reason people are more upset now, with Obama, is because they are disappointed in him. They had HOPE he would CHANGE things.

They should have voted for Ron Paul.


What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Mr. Stewart is having trouble

figuring out what folks are mad about?

Let's start here, Jonnie.


The daily Show can not hide behind Satire. They a political show. The interviews are real and only have light joking. The take a stand on issues and oppose others. They are only a satire during the fake news segments.

All publicity is good

All publicity is good publicity is usually wrong but Ron being so forcefully accredited on TDS was terrific. Yes, Jon was speaking negatively about revolution and anger, but that part played very subtly. ANOTHER small victory for RP in the arena where sheeple live and play... loved it. Thanks for the clip embed Michael.

"I'm just looking for opportunities to turn things around philosophically. College students love to hear about personal liberty and personal freedom and personal choices and, of course, this whole idea of getting our troops home, they're very

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.


Was Stewart not completely wrong about "the American people want the public option"? Especially after the Gallup polls have come out?

He was definitely on about Ron Paul and limited government.

Ok.....sorry to intervene

I find it interesting that someone from the dailypaul would dare mention THE GALLUP POLLS ......do you mention the GALLUP POLLS when it seems to make your point legitimate? So, you agree with GALLUP as well that Ron Paul doesn't even register enough to be considered in polling? You now agree that GALLUP was on the up and up in so far as Ron Paul? Just want to make sure that you stick with GALLUP from now on and I don't see any post from you when RON PAUL's getting the shaft from the media and polls.



I dont understand what you mean, but...

Posted on Ron Pauls site last week:


I was making a point that even Jon Stewart looks at Gallup, so how could he say things about the American people that, clearly, arent true, especiallly from this?

Surely, there are people that want the public option, but to say that the majority of Americans want the option? I think its safe to say that less than half the people think Government shouldnt be running it in the first place, which would make his statement ridiculous.

I can't speak for other

I can't speak for other parts of the country, but Portlanders (Oregon) certainly are majority for significant healthcare reform in the direction of universal coverage if you judge by our media and just thru talking with folks. With that said, however, I rarely meet a person who's on board with the current plans in the House and Senate.

Good interview with Dobbs

Worth the time for the insights from Dobbs.

He's the man.

It's funny cause..

I caught that last night when I was watching and I almost flipped my couch over, hahaha I liked Lou Dobbs in a sense that he's right about alot of thing's, other things no but alot he is. I think THAT is why he is off air, "TO MUCH TRUTH LOU, WE GOTTA LET YOU GO" "BUT WERE GONNA SAY IT'S CAUSE WERE GOING IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION, AND IF YOU SAY OTHERWISE WE'RE CUTTIN YOU OFF."


Paul - Dobbs ticket? OH HELL NO!

Remember Paul's brush with racism per his newsletter? That cost him more than you might think.

And Dobb's has been totally painted a racist...whether he deserves it or not.

Simply, Paul needs to distance himself from Dobbs.

Part of me thinks Stewart brought up Ron Paul just to make the association between the two...to bring down Paul. I'm glad Dobbs didn't talk about Paul much at all. Then again, Dobbs didn't say anything much at all in the interview. As Stewart said, CNN has Dobbs balls in a vice.

He didn't mention Ralph Nader

Ralph Nader is being censored. Ralph Nader stood up to Clinton, Gore, Bush, Kerry.. pointed out that they were all selling out to corporations, Coke Pepsi.

I need to read nader's new nook, Only The Super Rich Can Save US.

My whole take, is the GOP is reinventing its self with Palin..who may go Indy, and I guess that's what worries me, is that the tinme is ripe for a Indy.. and Palin is controlled opposititon.

As I have said before...

FOX , ABC, MSNBC, CNN, and all the rest of the letters of the alphabet are not my friend. I watch them all equally and then I come to the Daily Paul to get the truth. Fox did shut Ron Paul down, and very well I might add, to the average Joe 6-pack but those with a brain about them have seen and understand the true value in what he was and still is saying. Just remember all you "Glenn Beck lovers", Glenn Beck shot Ron Paul down too and now all of the sudden he likes to act like he had the same ideas all along. The internet never forgets and I won't either.
