    The Daily Show host was giving Obama a tough time about hiring the conventional and Clintonian Larry Summers as his top economic advisor.

    "In fairness," the president replied defensively, "Larry Summers did a heckuva job."

    "You don't want to use that phrase, dude," Stewart recommended with a laugh.

    Dude. The indignity of a comedy show host calling the commander in chief "dude" pretty well captured the moment for Obama. He was making this first-ever appearance by a president on the Daily Show as part of a long-shot effort to rekindle the spirit of '08. In the Daily Show, Obama had a friendly host and an even friendlier crowd.

    But, as in his MTV appearance a couple of weeks ago, Obama didn't try to connect with his youthful audience. He was serious and defensive, pointing a finger at his host several times as he quarreled with the premise of a question.

    On the Daily Show, Obama is the last laugh

    an empty suit's empty suit speaks :lol:

    that doesn't seem to be the general impression here from what i've read in right wing rags like WaPo.

    i can't wait for his appearance on mythbusters. :thup:

    perhaps you should have actually watched it instead of getting your opinion from the guy who put together snippets of quotes back in 2008 to show that obama was 'presumptuous' and who covered clinton for the new republic and who suggested hillary clinton should drink 'mad bitch beer'???

    i think i'll pass on dana milbank's *opinion*

    I watched the whole thing. Stewart made him look like an ass, and he must have known he was doing it, and didn't care.

    for a man with such highly trumpeted political and oratorical skills to utter the phrase "heckuva job" in relation to his own appointee is just too damn funny, as stewart pointed out. i guess it's hard to see the humor when things aren't working out as planned.

    i'll definitely watch him on mythbusters. :thup:

    you won't be able to tear me away.

    mythbusters- you can't make this stuff up :rofl:

    I can stomach, barely, POTUS appearing on the Daily Show. It's at least a topical show focused on current events.

    But MythBusters? How un-presidential can you get? What's next? Top Gear? Dirty Jobs?
