Jon Stewart Sets President Obama Straight After Lackluster Debt Ceiling Address

| Filed under: Jon StewartPolitikBarack Obama

He hits the nail right on the head, as always!

The deadline for raising the United States' debt ceiling is August 2nd, and as that date is almost here, President Obama addressed the public on Monday night, and of course, Jon Stewart had a few comments regarding his lackluster approach on yesterday's episode of The Daily Show!

Check him out (above)!

100% spot on! We hear you, guy!

We just seriously hope that Obama did, too! Enough is enough!

Time to TAKE ACTION!

    lol as if you know anything about politics…

    Spot on about what? You hope Obama listens to what? To find humor in this is a stretch.
    He is chiding the president for a wimpy address with no substance.
    HOWEVER, if the teaparty gets its way the price paid by the average citizen will be devastating. The only thing he gets right is DEATH TO THE OLIGARCHS. The Bush tax cuts and Obama's extention of the Bush tax cuts have accomplished nothing. Time for everyone to pay up not just on the backs of the poor.

    Wait… is Jon Stewart a liberal or conservative? Sure sounds like the latter here. And if I have to hear one more time that about the rich on the backs of the poor… blah blah blah. Name ONE person that pays any kinds of taxes!!! And sales tax doesn't count. I mean income tax. While I'm cutting a hefty check every year, everyone around me that makes pennies and pays no income tax get back HUGE refund checks of money they didn't even put into the system. Oh, and come down to the poor neighborhood for a lesson. Satellite dishes, fancy cars on wheels and Coach purses all over the place. Oh yes… the poor.

    Stewart is a little wrong here. He is saying all Republicans support the cut only approach, but it is only the Tea Party faction. The old guard Republicans and Democrats are all on the same page here, but the Tea Party is what is really holding this whole thing up. Stewart is right about one thing though, Obama is not helping the situation at all.

    Re: rickraton – sounds like you need to take an economics class. obama has gotten his way the past 3 years and the escalated a recession that should have been over in the spring of '09. his policies are the exact wrong approach and thank God for the Bush tax cuts..now we need more of them and obviously less liberal spending. time for these liberals to get their hands out of the pockets of Americans and let capitalism work as it has for the past 240 years.

    There are reasons why other countries have higher taxes than the US, it's to ensure they don't go broke and to subsidize social programs. Americans fear too much government control in their lives but when there's a crisis, they wonder how the government let this happen. It's now come back to haunt the US, lower taxes and spending more than the country is bringing in equals bankruptcy. And Hilton, stick to copying and pasting about celebrities because you're as naive about politics as you are about sex. And I'm sure you'd rather Obama put gay marriage and equality ahead of a silly little thing like the debt crisis anyway.

    Boy, when Jon Stewart calls Obama a Communist on national TV, you know the president's beliefs are screwed up …



  10. 10

    Perez, really? This was weird to hear from YOU….have you looked far into this sitch? The republicans are FUCKING SHIT UP……..Mr. Obama is doing what he HAS to. They have forced him to do this. He's just trying to do what's right…as always.

    Funny, I don't see anywhere on this story though how the President for the last two years along with the then fully Democrat majority on all branches of government didn't bother to pass or even think of coming up with a budget. They just spent without one… and now all of a sudden it's a pressing issue? As if!



  12. 12

    Well according to our Constitution, the Congress has to act. If he didn't need Congress we wouldn't be in this mess. So Perez. WTF have you done??? I think it's good for members of Congress to hear from us. I have no problem calling them or e-mailing them and raising a little hell. Why should our country be facing this crisis because of some extremists like the Tea Party. If people don't get their checks next week you will see some real trouble. The stock market is already dropping like a stone. And the rich people are going to get richer if we have a deb5t crisis. Wall street will find a way to profit from the misery. The President is right. They are asking for cuts to Medicare and Social Securitry yet the wealthy people aren't hardly paying any federal income taxes at all. A person earning $40,000 pays more income tax than a person making $4 Million. I hate the stupid Tea Party people and I hate the cowards who won't stand up to them. No matter how much the President is willing to give up to them, they keep refusing to support this. It is rotten, and they don't care about us or their country at all.



  13. 13

    Where have all these loonies defending the President been for the past 2 1/2 years? Were you yelling about a budget then? Why don't you ask why wasn't a budget passed when they had NO opposition when they controlled the House and the Senate? Does anyone else other than me want to know the answer to that?

    HULU are a fat corporate sell out and suck!



  15. 15

    Well…. Obama did promise change….

    LOVE YOU OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: annenne – Wow. I wish America would get out of this whole left/right paradigm of "if you're not with us, you're against us". It's so stupid and destructive! He can be liberal and still not agree with everything Obama says or does… it's called integrity. :)

    You people are stupid…The situation we are in is because of Bush his tax cuts his war. The R wing and some of the Demo gave Bush a blank check….

    @Buck….Talk about premature ejaculation….Obama has been office 2 years not 3. Bush tax cuts are not creating jobs. The TEA PARTY is running the R Wing…nuf said…

    Re: MRSMOMOA – U should do some research on your self serving opinions! And yes I said OPINIONS! Obama has created more debt than EVERY single president combined in HISTORY in onllly 2 years! It took Bush 8 from all his wars to come up with only a small fraction compared to Obama. Obama's stimulus did jack shit for this country, creating social programs for the poor was just spending worthless money like the democrats always seem to do everytime they're in office. This president has absolutely no plan, he just continues to blame bush who has nothing to do with our current crisis. He also blames the republicans for getting in the way, when it seems to me like the republicans are the only ones coming up with a plan! I can only assume obama is jealous and upset that he cant come up with

Obama is a whiny little kid that cant come up with his own ideas so he decides to sabotage the more intelligent kids who can actually think for themselves and come up with a gameplan. Typical democrat but this ones just a tad more obvious about it, guess it comes with little experience.

    I love Americans blaming Obama. Maybe if your previous president didnt screw things up so badly for 8 years prior…

    Re: onetonine – Amen to that and I live in America. It kills me how the Republicans can't see that Obama has been put in the worst scenario ever thanks to Bush. Republicans don't care about anyone but themselves. Obama tries and tries like a really good guy but he's getting walked on over and over again which makes me sad.

    Re: MRSMOMOA
    as much as you might want to blame it all on Bush
    when you look at the world- Greece-other countries in financial crisis- you will realize that it's not just the US
    .
    any country that has
    *retirement around age 60- where people stop paying into their system and start taking from it
    *a lot of entitlements where people work the system and are encouraged to not become self-sufficient tax paying citizens
    *leaders who think throwing millions at the problem will solve it without any kind of long term plan
    *governments that ignore the apporaching problem until it becomes a crisis
    *humungous bailouts to institutions where the government doesn't step in to regualte the massive payouts at the top
    .
    so many reasons other than Bush..
