'Summer of bedbugs' might have been more accurate

America had a summer of bedbugs and mosque controversy instead of the "summer of recovery" Joe Biden promised, complains Jon Stewart. The Daily Show host, pointing to dismal jobs numbers and the sagging stock market, says "summer of recovery" is about as accurate as calling last summer the "summer of reasonable health care reform discussion."

New top economic adviser Austan Goolsbee says Biden meant "recovery" as in Recovery Act projects, Stewart smirks. In layman's terms, Stewart says, it's as if he had announced in June that this was the summer of losing his virginity, only to announce in September—still a virgin—that the summer had been dedicated to the spirit of losing his virginity, "only to find out at the end of camp that girls prefer jerks instead of romance."
