This morning Bossy awoke to the news that her Barack O’Boyfriend appeared on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show last night, which Bossy didn’t know about because she was too busy solving the world situation, where world situation equals watching the end of 2012 on Netflix.
But fear not, because with the help of a simple Google search, Bossy was able to locate video of this historic interview in full, and will now provide her council with the highlights. Shall we?
First Jon Stewart noted that Barack Obama has a certain inspirational quality, but wondered aloud if it was something this country was ready for.
Barack responded by telling Jon Stewart that while it’s true he’s drawing huge crowds as he travels across the country, the most inspiring thing is the fact that young people are becoming more involved.
Next Jon Stewart brings into question Obama’s negative press coverage, and asks Obama how he deals with the insanity of the political process.
“People are frustrated in politics,” Obama answered. “So much of what politicians say, people know it’s not true, and all the insiders understand that we’re just game-playing.”
Obama then held forth on the benefits of good judgment and common sense and how pushing against conventional wisdom can often produce results.
Next Jon Stewart mentioned Obama’s flair for attracting celebrity, but expressed concern that Obama was tying himself and his fundraising concerns to people such as Oprah.
“Having Oprah’s support is wonderful, but people just want to talk to you,” speculated Obama. “They want to lift the hood, they want to kick the tires.”
Jon Stewart than looked to address the problem that people perceive Hillary Clinton as having more experience than Barack. But Obama magnanimously reminded Jon Stewart that Hillary is a very capable person who did some heavy lifting on issues during the Clinton administration.
And then Jon Stewart said his hope for Barack is that he stays above the fray, and he wished Obama luck with his campaign.
Because as it turns out, last night’s Daily Show video isn’t yet available in full — but Bossy can tell you this about that: Yeah. So. Right.

–>Bossy makes me laugh A Lot.

OMG, that is so totally something I would do! LOL! I am always getting screwed when I watch programs on DVR and then take to heart the quick weather updates. For some reason I can’t grasp the fact that “tomorrow will be sunny” really means “last Thursday was sunny”. I end up wearing short sleeves on 45 degree days and having no umbrella when it downpours.

La Suzette saysOctober 28, 2010 at 12:31 pm
Bossy! You are a nasty girl! (yet HIGH-lariously Nasty!)
@lori, i share your weather report angst! I’ve even watched old news…sigh
KathyB saysOctober 28, 2010 at 12:36 pm
Oh, and promos for shows that have already aired. Will watch this show on dvr. Don’t stay up late enough to watch live.
KP saysOctober 28, 2010 at 12:49 pm
Uh oh. Bossy better watch out. I hear Michelle has a pair of guns she might aim in Bossy’s direction if she ever catches wind of what Bossy wants to do to her husband’s drivetrain…
Reeb saysOctober 28, 2010 at 12:56 pm
Bossy’s heavy breathing sounds like it’s straight out of 2008, when she hyperventilated over O’Boyfriend a lot then too.
But heck. Here I am, the last person in this Great, Wonderful, Best-Ever-USA-USA-USA — erm, excuse me, let me get back on track — without cable. Totally depending on Bossy to keep me up with today’s events on cable, like Jon and O’Boy last night. And instead of events of 2010, she’s in 2012, ripping her bodice like in 2008. Dang, Bossy.
joeinvegas saysOctober 28, 2010 at 1:07 pm
Oh Bossy, such comments!
His last appearence was probably a lot like that one, so you didn’t miss much.
BossysMom saysOctober 28, 2010 at 1:50 pm
OR…you probably missed alot. O’Barack.
pam from ohio saysOctober 28, 2010 at 1:59 pm
This made me laugh out loud! The first thought I had after reading the 2nd paragraph was “how did that video get out there so fast”? Bossy is a funny girl.
Stacey saysOctober 28, 2010 at 3:18 pm
Awesome ! And not unlike something I might do.
wicked witch saysOctober 28, 2010 at 5:21 pm
Bossy wasn’t the only confused one as I watched Barack O’Boyfriend on Stewart last night and KNEW he wore a tie -couldn’t understand how I missed the open collar – I have it on dvr if any of Bossy’s council wants to drive to the Land of Oz but we’re all on the bus to the Rally to Restore Sanity, aren’t we?
Frimmy saysOctober 28, 2010 at 5:22 pm
My internets was certainly getting hot whilst reading Bossy’s summary! Nobody makes me laugh like Bossy. Part of me wants to keep her my secret and part of me wants to broadcast to everyone what they’re missing by not being here!
Kim saysOctober 28, 2010 at 5:34 pm
Pat saysOctober 28, 2010 at 9:49 pm
LMAO…you are so funny
Mrs. Tuna saysOctober 28, 2010 at 10:04 pm
Bossy!!!! Don’t act like such a hussy, please step away from MY boyfriend.
Little Miss Sunshine State saysOctober 28, 2010 at 10:23 pm
Back to the future, Bossy!
Lynn saysOctober 28, 2010 at 10:33 pm
Jeez Bossy, you are a RIOT!!! You have the hots for the President and that just cracks me up!

Oh man… 2012. That was the worst movie I ever sat all the way through.I mean, why build arks when you can easily go with blimps? Nobody ever thinks of the blimp solution.
Dobes saysOctober 29, 2010 at 1:23 am
Jason – I never would have thought of it, but you’re right! Arks are so 5000 B.C.
Sandi saysOctober 29, 2010 at 9:53 am
That is freakin’ hilarious.
