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.
