    The last administration brought in a gay prostitute to lob them pre-written softballs during official news conferences so I don't know where all this outrage is coming from over a little segment on a comedy show.

    Get some perspective, people.

    You'd think it's a comedy show anyway if you listen to some of the questions the press repeatedly ask over and over again because they never listen or don't have the intellect to understand the answers they get.

    It will be another Love Fest, Jon Stewart is a big time liberal and a huge Obama fan.

    CJ-trust us, by virtue of the fact that you live in Florida, you are not smart (but, good for you for thinking that you are)

    The Daily Show is more accurate and more entertaining than Fox News. Unlike FN however, the station has "Comedy" in the name – not "News." How's that for transparency?

    What a refreshing idea. This President is not like any others. He demonstrates sense of humor this way.

    No Matt, you are sadly mistaken. The reason this atrocity is in the works is because Congress, not just Democrats but Republicans too, claimed that these banks and corporations were too big to fail. There is no need for government oversight because when these businesses are corrupt and excessive they do not perform well and eventually fail. With this stimulus, we just rewarded the corrupt executives of the companies that took on unnecessary risks. There is now no downside to risky business practices because good old Uncle Sam with be there to catch you when you fall.

    We need to let these companies fail. Others will come in to take their place and life will go on. Only the competent businesses deserve to survive.

    Most of you people that are commenting on here need to acquire a sense of humor. Good grief. A good laugh once in awhile might be good for your health.

    I think the veil of a centrist Obama is wearing thin and his true leftist persona is spilling out.

    hey "arithmetic is liberal" uniforms and textiles will most likely go to China, also construction workers are a very very small segment of the un-employed, and watch closely the gas prices – they will spike through the roof, since the President said no to off shore drilling yesterday, just what everyone needs now – higher energy prices,
