'Summer of bedbugs' might have been more accurate

(Newser) – America had a summer of bedbugs and mosque controversy instead of the "summer of recovery" Joe Biden promised, complains Jon Stewart. The Daily Show host, pointing to dismal jobs numbers and the sagging stock market, says "summer of recovery" is about as accurate as calling last summer the "summer of reasonable health care reform discussion."

New top economic adviser Austan Goolsbee says Biden meant "recovery" as in Recovery Act projects, Stewart smirks. In layman's terms, Stewart says, it's as if he had announced in June that this was the summer of losing his virginity, only to announce in September—still a virgin—that the summer had been dedicated to the spirit of losing his virginity, "only to find out at the end of camp that girls prefer jerks instead of romance."

Sep 15, 2010 8:54 AM CDT that the Obama administration was wrong about unemployment figures after the Union slush fund...and wrong about the so called "summer of recovery"...can we finally pin Obama with SOME responsibility for the economy now? After all, it was not Bush who gave them Obama his recovery plans, which have clearly failed.

OMG Jon Stewart is in the administration's pocket. He pays Newser to be here. He's just an entertainer lol. Kudos to being balanced Jon.

Why's that gosh-darn Jon Stewart such an dogged ideologue for the administration?!? He's nothing but an apologist mouthpiece for it! When will you lib-tard sheeple stop insisting that he's a just an admittedly left-leaning satirist and see that he's really the anti-Christ's megaphone??? /sarcasm
