Jon Stewart Slams Republican Hypocrisy On Eminent Domain

Republicans can't seem to make up their minds when it comes to private property rights.

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart discussed the fact that the United States Congress or President Obama's veto pen are not the only hurdles the building of the Keystone XL pipeline faces. There's also the issue of eminent domain and whether the landowners can be forced to sell their property, and as Stewart noted, everyone knows how Republicans feel about eminent domain, or do they?

It turns out that Republicans were against the use of eminent domain before they were for it.
