Stuffy fell down on the job not questioning Rudy here, but seriously, what is the point of telling bald-faced lies this?
“What he [Obama] should be doing is following the right things that Bush did — one of the right things he did was treat this as a war on terror. We had no domestic attacks under Bush. We’ve had one under Obama,”
I understand the idea of bamboozling people with crazy shit about the deficit and Social Security and Gitmo releasees and so on, but why say something that everyone watching the show knows isn’t true?
It would make a lot more sense to trot out a wiseman-for-hire like Tom Keen and have him say, in a very staid and serious voice, that Obama fucked up all the great anti-terrorism stuff that Bush did. Not just because the Village would nod along but because it would seem more plausible to viewers.
