If this doesn't wake up those who watch it as to what we will have with either man as President, nothing will.

Napolitano's books, A NATION OF SHEEP,LIES THE GOVERNMENT TOLD YOU, Myths, Power and Deception in American History and at the present time i am reading IT IS DANGEROUS TO BE RIGHT WHEN THE GOVERNMENT IS WRONG.Thanks! Judge. You and Ron Paul are true patriots who proudly defend liberty, personal freedom and our Constitution. My 90 years mother is reading Ron Paul's book END THE FED.

More Closet Paul Supporters Than You Might Think..

Don't kid yourselves...These TV and radio personalities like a lot of what Ron Paul says..They are just hoping he can pull it off and save the day. They know damn well Romulan and Obama are poison, they just can't come out and say so..

You know what i mean man?

Many of the TV personalities that love Ron Paul are silent, acting in stealth. I know some of them. They don't dare give themselves away. Its like in the days of Rome's Nero..You couldn't come out and verbally claim you were a christian. (a follower of Christ) Nero would have them crucified..In the same way, anyone claiming they are supporters of Congressman Ron Paul are subject to ridicule, especially TV personalities. They could lose their high paying jobs..

I caught the segment on Hulu

I caught the segment on Hulu plus. Everything leading up to the line leads me to believe that he is serious that "...Ron Paul, you're our only hope." And the look on his face after he says it looks serious.

I guess the great thing about this is that it is reminding people that he is still in the game. Not the two man game the rest of the media is trying to make it be.

is the laughter pre-recorded or is it his studio audience

if so, i've always felt his studio audience rabidly retarded

I've always had this weird

I've always had this weird feeling they mix it up. There's one episode I remember seeing a few months ago and a guy did this weird 'whoop'(kinda like a cough) and Stewart joked about it and said 'oh, somebody sneezed'.

Of course, there are plenty of other times it sounds pre-recorded


I don't think it means anything, but I found it odd that Stewart didn't blink during that little segment. He just stares eyes wide open into the camera until they cut to commercial.

"Loyalty's worth more than wealth...in a world where...people be all for self."

I think it does.

IMO, he was doing an impression of a paulbot. While I did not appreciate that, he did, at least, speak the truth while mocking us.

“It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life.”

I dont know - I think he is Calling Him Obi-RON Kenobi

Nonna I think he was doing a Star Wars Impersonation, I think the line in the movie is, "Help us Obi-wan Kenobi, Your our only Hope." Obi-wan being the fearless wise Teacher.

Here is the line.


Jon does star wars refernces

Jon does star wars refernces all the time and admits to being a fan of the franchise. So he's a star wars fan who accidentially used a quote from A New Hope??? It was an obvious Alec Guinness/Obi-wan comparision in my opinion.

My prediction

Stewart and Maddow will announce that they are dating. This announcement will take place at a Ron Paul rally where they will officially endorse him together.
Crazier things have happened.

they are dating

They will marry under a chuppa and sail to Tel Aviv on honeymoon and kiss the wailing wall and pose with bibi for photos.

" Crazier things have happened. "




It would have to be a joint announcement where Jon Stewart also announces that he is a woman!

I had posted this Stewart

I had posted this Stewart video on Facebook this morning and a die-hard Romney friend of mine posted this:

"I interpreted that people throwing away their votes for Paul is the only hope for Obama's reelection."

And this guy is an attorney. You'd think he'd be smart enough to see the similarities between Obama and Romney.

Die hard Romney fans exist??

Die hard Romney fans exist?? Who knew...


I believe stewart

is a closet Paul supporter. Like many liberals he realizes the federal level is not the answer to the problems America faces. States are constrained by politicians being forced to balance budgets. This is where any social engineering should take place anyway. I would gladly work with progressives for solutions at local and state levels if they could finally be convinced to stop the madness of trying to control everything at the federal level, although the federal reserve is a social engineers dream come true. Thats a hard drug for liberals to quit.

Bad Quality Clip

I'll try again when a better one is posted.

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

I think it goes like this

Help us O B G Y N, you are our only hope.

I Read Your Comment 10 Minutes Ago . . .

And I'm still laughing.


ME too!!!

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin

Help us Obi-Ron-Kenobi, you're our only hope.

The choice is becoming clear.

Do we want ObomaRoma where both promise a government ruled by the tyrannical 10 point program of the Communist Manifesto as their records prove.

Make mine the Constitution and the rule of law, where personal liberty and individual responsibility trump any other concerns of government.

"We will remember Solzhenitsyn as an unyielding champion of freedom who dedicated himself to revealing the horrors of socialism and exposing the ultimate evil of Lenin, Stalin, and their cohort of mass murderers."

Notice his comment before

Notice his comment before

"Obama Romney, There we go.. there is going to be slim pickings material wise." (Obvious Irony)

Then the: "help us Ron Paul, you're our only hope".

I know he agrees with Pauls foreign policy and that might be a crucial point for many people. Like another poster mentioned he does lean left but he is respectful and thought provoking which allows him to actually listen to people. From some interviews I've seen I've gathered that he holds more respect for Ron Paul than Romney, and seeing as how Romney and Obama are so similar I would venture to assume he doesn't really like Obama too much anymore either.

The, "slim pickings material

The, "slim pickings material wise" comment was made because there is slim difference between the two candidates that he cannot make fun of Romney without simultaneously making fun of Obama; which he will not do during an election.

He said, "Help us Ron Paul,

He said, "Help us Ron Paul, you're our only hope," referencing comedy material for his show, not referencing that RP is the only hope for the United States.



If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

That's how I saw it too...

It doesn't necessarily mean anything bad tho. Come August, the media will have no choice but to acknowledge Paul. They'd have to blackout the entire Republican National Convention to keep him out of the news.

The lies, the spin, the inevitable chaos will be blood in the water for the Stewart shark tank.

Can't wait.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” - Mark Twain

The Daily Show

has had Ron Paul on as a guest two times since the primaries began. He ran a segment about Ron Paul being ignored when he came in as a close second in the Iowa straw poll. He supports Ron Paul as a candidate, but has not explicitly endorsed him.

Even though he is a Liberal, Jon Stewart consistently exposes the hypocrisy of both sides.

I don't always agree with his views, but I do enjoy his show.


if Obama agrees with Stewart's take on the media's treatment of Ron Paul?

“I like The Daily Show, so sometimes if I’m home late at night, I’ll catch snippets of that. I think Jon Stewart’s brilliant,” Obama told Rolling Stone’s Jann Wenner. “It’s amazing to me the degree to which he’s able to cut through a bunch of nonsense – for young people in particular, where I think he ends up having more credibility than a lot of more conventional news programs do."

And what about this - didn't Obama make some promises when he ran that he has since broken? Would he be happy if Stewart pointed those things out? But will Stewart ever do that? Dunno...

"I don't think that their nominee is going to be able to suddenly say, 'Everything I've said for the last six months, I didn't mean,'" Obama said. "I'm assuming that he meant it. When you're running for president, people are paying attention to what you're saying."

Obama did this interview for Rolling Stone so as to resonate with the youth...perhaps Ron Paul could get a gig with them??????


The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
