The Daily Show's Jon Stewart had a field day with Mitt Romney for his statement that he's “not concerned about the very poor" and that they have safety nets in place to take care of them, pointing out the obvious, which is that if you're landing in a "net", you're not okay and are in some kind of trouble and something "has gone terribly wrong."

Stewart finished up the segment with crew members John Oliver and Jason Jones representing the "very poor" and the "very rich" who did a great job of making a complete mockery of the Republicans and their "class warfare" talking points.

If only we could get this much scorn for Romney who's managed to come across as a robotic version of Gordon Gekko from the Villagers in the corporate "news" media.
