Obama & Stewart: Butt Heads on the Daily Show

When Big Guy walked unto the set at the Daily Show, he owned the room. No, literally. It was from the Dem’s Convention, and we had it stored in the basement so all we had to do was bring it up and ship it across town to where Jon has temporarily set up for his fake news show.

I’d have to say, the interview went rather well. Big Guy rocked the vote! I know you couldn’t see him, butt v-Totus  was there, embedded in the glass topped desk to help BO through the tough spots. You can tell if you watch his eyes going up and down, up and down. Normally Jon would have made fun of that, but since he was already calling Big Guy partisan, divisive, derisive and timid, he didn’t want to call him stupid too. 


Dr. Laura IngraHAM would probably call Big Guy a Butt Monkey (BM), butt (BM) as usual, she was just copy-catting me.

BTW, apparently Megyn Kelly is too busy hatin’ on us and Professor William Jacobson has been soooo busy that he even forgot his own anniversary, butt (BM) I’m still waiting for replies to my tweets (Or are those  tweeties? I’m not really up to speed on this stuff). I know they’re going to represent me with great vigor, butt (BM) how long does a mirror have to wait for reflective justice?

Anyway, as is his custom, BO’s lecture included a lot of “whole bunch of’s” and “heck of a’s” to show that he’s just one of us “folks.” Here’s how our Brit friends saw it

The one news point in the interview was a hint that he favoured reform of the Senate's filibuster tactic that frequently obstructs legislation. But he did not tackle it when the Democrats had a big majority in the Senate …

Of course, we had a lot of “changes” to ramrod up your through our Senate back then.

Stewart teased the president about his campaign slogan "Yes, we can", suggesting that these days it was "Yes, we can, with conditions attached".

Obama replied: "When I say that when we promised during the campaign, change you can believe in, it wasn't change you can believe in in 18 months ...What I would say is, 'Yes, we can', but it is not going to happen overnight.

No, just under the cover of night.

And BTW, 18 months in the Senate was long enough to qualify to be President. Butt (BM) just like in the Senate he’s been “present” ever since he was elected.


From Politico:

At one point, he said that while Obama ran for president with audacity, the change he’s enacted has felt rather "timid."

"Jon, I love your show, but this is something where, you know, I have a profound disagreement with you," Obama said. "And I don't want to lump you in with a lot of other pundits, but this notion that health care is timid ..."

It produced a rare rejoinder from Stewart – "I'll tell you what I mean, and I don't mean to lump you in with other presidents"

Good move, Jon. We’ve never had such a historic president before. Ever.

And then, BO disclosed this:

“We’ve done things that some folks don’t even know about”

And we HOPE you never do, because those things would land some of us in the hoosegow. Butt (BM) keeping those secrets secret is getting a lot harder as our lapdogs in the LSM are not as reliable as they once were (except the gang at Ms.NBC – thanks!) and our staff rats seem to be jumping off our sinking ship. And it was their loose lips that sunk us to begin with.

At one point Obama began praising the performance of departing economic adviser Larry Summers, saying he has done a "heck of a job," using a phrase former President George W. Bush made famous when he complimented FEMA director Michael Brown in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Stewart interrupted. "You don't want to use that phrase, dude," he said.

To which Big Guy quickly recovered and said “Pun intended.”Is it just me? I’m still waiting for the pun.

And then, Jon asked Bo: “Are you still the ones we’ve been waiting for?” Now that’s a tricky one. Some are still waiting. And some wish they were still waiting. And some know that they are the ones we’ve been waiting for – butt (BM) not in a good way. Now everybody just seems to be waiting for them all to leave.
