Barack Obama on The Daily Show


You have to hand it to Barack Obama, despite all the reports of him being aloof and professorial, he does come across as a person who is comfortable and relaxed in public, quite unlike Mitt Romney who seems to be always on the edge of saying something that will be awkward.

This took place two days after the second debate. In part 1, Stewart asks him why he was so subdued in the first debate and Obama uses it to give a summary of his stump speech.

In part 2, Obama was clearly being disingenuous about Guantanamo and wiretapping and drone deaths and Benghazi. He never really answered the questions.

    Which is good intentions? I guess? Maybe?
