Barack Obama on Jon Stewart: ‘Did He Just Sell Me a Sham-Wow?’

Sadly, Barack Obama appeared on Jon Stewart via Satellite post his Obamamercial. Still, Stewart makes the most of it, at one point asking Obama if he’s suffering from buyer’s remorse: “Two years ago when you started this journey the country was not in the shape it’s in now, is there a sense now that you don’t want this?” Earlier, addressing the fringe GOP voters who have been touting his, as Stewart phrased it, “elitist, celebrity, Muslim, terrorist,” sympathies, Obama said he thinks there is a certain segment of Sean Hannity fans who probably don’t want to have a beer with him (does Obama have it in for Fox?). Also, “they found proof that when I was in Kindergarten I shared some toys with my friends.” Socialist!
