Jon Stewart: "Not Only Does Romney Dodge Hot Button Issues, He Dodges No Button Issues"

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart called out Mitt Romney for running on a platform that is, essentially, "Listen, I've got a plan, I can fix this thing. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it." Stewart digs up some poll numbers showing that Mitt Romney would lose to Obama, though a "generic Republican" would beat him. But frankly, Romney's doing a pretty good job of being "generic," refusing to answer questions about not only hot button issues like same-sex marriage, but "no button" issues like which book he's currently reading.
