    This has got to be the douchiest, most sarcastic and condescending apology I've read in a while.
    He spends the entire first half of his piece denigrating and talking down to liberals who found "comfort" in facts and statistical analysis. As though they weren't seeking the truth through numbers but instead ideological comfort, which ironically is EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS GUILTY OF, NOT THEM.

    I don't want to go too far but to me this "apology" was like a window into the mind of someone with severe character flaws. Narcissism, projection, condescension, inability to admit being wrong along with pleasure and gratification mocking those who actually were right. It literally creeps me out reading this.

    Poor Joe is hated by the right and the left. He must like the abuse.

    Oh my god, you mean....in the debate which he embarrassed Bill O....he switched two words around? OMG!

    Nevermind that even with the switch of words, the question he asked couldn't be answered by Bill..how do you cut taxes during two wars?

    Of course, the reason Republicans are jumping at this video for the debt/deficit mistake is because they know they have little to no chance of winning the tax cut argument.

    Switched words? He flat out says the debt was wiped out under Clinton and that all 10 trillion debt before Obama took over came from Bush.

    Switch the words around all you like and you still can't make sense of that.

    one is a comedian and the other is a television shock jock. who cares what they say, they don't represent anyone else.

    anyways, it's been proven deficits don't matter

    i'll make sense of it. they tried to use it as a tool to causes the pres. to lose the election. now that he won, they are using it to try to get even.
    had mitt won, you would never have heard that word again.

    Well, isn't that what the CIA is doing with the super-secret of Benghazi? Oh, and the FBI? And the NSA? And the White House?

    Just masters.....

    doubling down on the deflection. very bold. I'd like to hear more about how Bush was responsible for all 10 trillion of the debt before Obama. You said Stewart just switched 2 words around. Which words?

    i know you don't want my opinion, but i feel congress(both sides) are far more responsible for it than either bush or obama.
    neither president benefited from those bloated spending bills, but congress did.
