Barack Obama's interview on The Daily Show (above) Thursday night may have been one of his best televised appearances yet.
He was both funny and informative by easily matching Jon Stewart's wit while being able to shift to a more serious tone to outline his case for the presidency.
The POTUS humbly laughed along as the Emmy-winning host poked fun at his performance during the first debate, but then shot back with:
"Obviously, I had an off night. The presentation wasn't the way it needed to be, but the issues haven't changed. They didn't change after the first debate and they didn't change in the second debate … Governor Romney makes a good presentation, but the fundamentals of what he's calling for are the same policies that got us into this mess that we've been fighting against for the last four years."
The second part of the interview (below) was a bit more fun, mostly due to a HIGHlarious Joe Biden joke when Stewart asked how often the Vice President shows up for meetings "in a wet bathing suit." Obama then zinged:
"I need to issue a presidential directive on that. We have to stop that. I have to say, though, he looks pretty good. Just saying."
Ha! Although we highly doubt that, it's hard not to LOL at that image.
When Stewart asked the President about why the "Bush era warrantless wiretapping laws and those types of things" have remained in place during his administration, he proceeded to explain that he "modified them" and "put safeguards in place that weren't there before."
The reason the American public isn't aware of his policy changes in that specific area is because "they're not real sexy issues." After Stewart quipped, "You don't know what I find sexy", Obama joked:
"I saw you flash that Shades of Grey thing, so I know what you've been reading, but we're not going to go there. I'm still the president."
Does that mean he'll be going there after he's done being president? Those interviews will be fun! LOLz!
