Jon Stewart speaking about whether President Obama, Speaker Boehner and Senate Majority leader McConnell will be able to work together “Really, if you look at what McConnell said yesterday, it’s clear that this partnership was doomed from the start.”

Sen Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “There’s no, not a personality problem here, or anything like that.  Uhm, I think my attitude about all this at this point is trust, trust but verify.”

Stewart “Trust but verify.  Where have I heard that before.”

President Ronald Reagan 12-8-87 “The importance of this treaty transcends numbers…Trust, but verify.”

Stewart “There you have it.  The high water mark of our new era of bipartisanship is the Senate Majority Leader implying he is to Obama as Reagan was to the leader of our totalitarian, nuclear armed nemesis, aka the evil empire.  Well, my feeling of despair is brought to me by historical context.  It’s why old people are sad.”
