Jon Stewart takes on the "Bush kept us safe from a terrorist attack" talking point we hear all too often these days from the bobble heads in our "main stream" media who are doing their best to help Bush revise his legacy.

Dave N: Let's face it: When George W. Bush claims he's "kept us safe," it's kind of like the babysitter who lets the toddler wander into traffic the first hour she's on the job, then herds all the remaining kids into the basement and locks them in to compensate. So when the parents get home, she says: "See, I kept them all safe after the toddler got run over."

Can you help us out?
