I really don't even know what to say about that.

If you feel there's a void filled and it was like "holy [beep], I never thought of that before", I wish you to share this 'wow' experience with me and others in this thread, which was what I intended.

I was just talking about the obvious void of a particular, political leaning, news show, with humor.

Problem I have with Jon Stewart is that he tries to hide behind the fact that he is on Comedy Central. Steven Colbert has the obvious satirical, ironic, funny, comedy news show, and you can see very clearly that Jon Stewart is leaning toward being a lot more serious, regarding politics.

It's fine that Jon Stewart wants to be more serious in giving his opinion on certain issues, that's the void I like him filling (it's better than those assholes at MSNBC or Fox News who think that they are not behaving incompetently and throwing objectivity out of the window); but it does bother me when people call Stewart out on this-- the fact that they are all basically doing the same thing, minus the fact that Jon Stewart is actually a comedian and funny-- and he just gives the old "but I come on the same channel as South Park". That would be correct, given his line of argument-- they are actually attempting to display themselves as objective journalists-- but it still holds true that he is seemingly using Comedy Central as a shield, when it's easy to tell, he only simply wants to give his political point of view and not really be funny/comedic.

I think we Chinese had a harder time during the U.S. democratic presidency in the 1990's because former President Bill Clinton was very good at using the States' soft power, the influences of the American culture, compared to the Bush Administration. What do you think of former President George W. Bush's foreign policy decisions?

If you remove all the disasters from the Bush presidency he was simply a mediocre President. Once you add in all his many fuck ups he gets down to almost the bottom of the list. GW did so much damage to America that it will take probably a full generation to fully repair. That is assuming no backsliding into those habits.

I gotta say, I'm no fan of da' Bush. But really I believe he was just along for the ride. He was a dumb enough twat coming from a prominent enough family with presidential credentials to get elected and keep the machine rolling. I think if anything, the biggest fuckup of his presidency is that he at no point thought for himself or the good of the country and allowed the powers that be to dictate how things would be done.
