Jon Stewart on Wednesday continued his Republican National Convention coverage, taking issue with one of the GOP’s defining mantras: “We built it.”
“When was the last time we heard a catchphrase that was such a peculiar mix of braggadocio and whiny petulance,” Stewart said.
But it has become the Romney campaign’s defining theme. Only one small problem, Stewart said: it’s based on a statement by President Obama that Republicans have taken wildly out of context.
