Monday night's "Daily Show" dealt with President Barack Obama officially launching his 2012 re-election campaign, to Jon Stewart's delight.
"He's not breaking up with us!" he squealed.
But the campaign video President Obama released on Friday lacked the vigor and inspiration of his 2008 campaign. Instead, he featured seemingly exhausted supporters who, in Stewart's opinion, don't seem to like him or trust him, but ask "what are you going to do?"
"How do we go from 'Yes we can' to 'You know, whatever'?," Stewart asked
But it's harder than it looks to seek re-election. In 2008 Obama said he wanted transparency and accountability in the White House, but now it's hard for him to run on the same platform. In fact, he recently received a transparency award and didn't invite the press. Stewart kind of understood what was going on there:
"When you were running for the White House, you wanted to know what the White House was hiding. Now you live in the White House and you want everyone to stop being so f***ing nosey."
