The Daily Show: Jon Stewart Interviews Barack Obama

Barack Obama dismisses accusations from the right and shares his optimism for November 4 with Jon Stewart.


Barack Obama appeared on the Daily Show Wednesday, a busy day for his campaign that included two Florida rallies and the airing of his 30-minute political commercial. Obama jokingly assured voters that he was undergoing therapy to make sure that his white half would vote democratic, and he also confronted Republican claims that his policies are part of a socialist agenda: “The evidence of this seems pretty thin…I think they found proof that when I was in kindergarten I shared some toys with my friends and that’s clearly a sign of subversive activity.”
