Jon Stewart Critiques President Obama in 'Daily Show' InterviewWhen Barack Obama ran for president, his slogan was "YES WE CAN!" On 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Jon Stewart criticized Obama's year and a half in office -- and offered a replacement slogan: "Yes we can, given certain conditions, blah blah blah ... blah blah."

During a historic 30-minute interview, Obama and Stewart argued -- but the pair also agreed about many things. Still, the host didn't let the president off easily. Jon critiqued Obama's attempts to reform the national health care system, calling the president's efforts "timid."

This led to a stern answer from the commander-in-chief: "I have a profound disagreement with you." Stewart said he hadn't suggested reform was "inconsequential." Obama shot back with a sarcastic response: "The suggestion was that it was 'timid.'"

Fox & Friends call shenanigans on Obama...for his beer choice?!?

Beer! Yea beer!Morning news shows are a goldmine of cringe-inducing moments and epic fail goodness. The title alone makes me laugh because only half of it is accurate due to the fact that it airs in the morning.

By far the unintentionally funniest show is that morning cup of crazy on Fox News, Fox and Friends. They truly cover news stories that no one else does as their on-air promos suggest because no one in their right mind would consider it news. I'm finally starting to understand Walter Cronkite's distrust of the 24-hour news network model: you'll call anything news to fill time.

Hosts Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade actually took President Barack Obama to task for ordering a Budweiser instead of an American-brewed beer during his recent "Beer Summit" with Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and Sgt. James Crowley.

Jon Stewart poking fun of Dick
All of you right-wingers who thought that The Daily Show was going to become just another tool in a liberal executive branch's belt should take note of the following story.

And if having to read a newspaper other than The Washington Times, The New York Post or The Daily American Patriot Commie Basher makes your eyes bleed, grab your Visine and suck it up. You need to read this.

An attorney for the state said the Obama administration did not want to release detail of an interview with former VP Dick Cheney regarding the Valerie Plame leak because of fears that "it's going to end up on The Daily Show."
