Jon Stewart: George W. Bush Library the ‘Hard Rock Cafe of Catastrophic Policy Decisions’ (Video)

Says first President Bush looks better in retrospect — because he's being compared to his son

Jon Stewart isn't lining up to visit the new George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.

The "Daily Show" host took in the idea Thursday that the museum, at Southern Methodist University, features 43,000 artifacts from the second Bush presidency.

"So it's basically the Hard Rock Cafe of caastrophic policy decisions," Stewart said.

Stewart also responded to the idea that the first Bush presidency looks better to many people in retrospect than it did when George H.W. Bush left office.

"Right. Because he's being compared to George W. That's why he looks better," Stewart said.
