Jon Stewart Mocks GOP Reaction To Iraq Withdrawal

Jon Stewart's biggest segment was about on his Monday night return to "The Daily Show."

Turning his "Mess O'Potamia" segment to the more appropriately named "End O'Potamia," Stewart rejoiced at the notion that we will be out of Iraq by 2012. What he didn't understand was how Republicans such as MItt Romney and Michele Bachmann could criticize the President's announcement. Not just because it's a good thing, but because it was former President George W. Bush who set the benchmark for withdrawal with the Iraqi people years ago. Why doesn't the GOP acknowledge this? Well, as Stewart points out, you probably don't remember that speech for that specific reason.
