Check it: Barack Obama on 'The Daily Show’

Last night’s full-on Obama TV takeover included ahalf-hour campaign ad special, a satellite appearance on The Daily Show, and arally with a certain William Jefferson Clinton in Florida (all scheduled nicelyso I could still watch the last three innings of the Phillies’ World Serieswin). During Jon Stewart’s hard-hitting interrogation (press play below), Obamaadmitted "proof" of his socialist tendencies (he shared toys with friends inkindergarten) and the Bradley effect (he’s in therapy so his white half won’tsay he’s voting for himself and then change his mind in the voting booth). Whatabout you, PopWatchers? Did you catch any of Senator Obama’s TV appearanceslast night? Which did you prefer?

    I didn’t watch any of them. It’ll just make me angry to discuss it. And why does the Senator think it was a good idea to hang with Slick Willy? The man was impeached for cripes sake. Last week Obama had Hilary with him and she made me physically ill to listen to her. He should’ve pushed her off the podium and reminded her who was running for President here.

    I record Jon Stewart every day, so I’ll make sure to watch it tonight. I also recorded Obama’s “show,” but I don’t know if I’ll watch it. I did catch a little of McCain on Larry King.

    obamaed out. no thank you.

    Impeached for what again? A sex scandal? And how large of a budget surplus did we have again, from his presidential term? Something like $550 billion. Yeah, I wouldn’t want to be associated with that guy at all.

    He was great on The Daily Show. The part about him being ‘race conflicted’ was genius. Get ready kiddies…your next president isn’t going to be old, inept OR white :)…oh, and I’d personally love another 8 of Slick Willy! Seriously, Jill, check out what Bill Clinton is doing over at clintonglobalinitiative.org – a lot of really great humanitarian stuff.

    Jill – President Clinton was not impeached. The Republican Congress did try but the impeachment failed to pass. I thought Obama was great in both venues. Unlike his opponents Senator McCain and Governor Palin, he stuck to the real issues. And by the way – all democracies are some mix of democratic principals and socialism. What do you think social security is or even public schools? What is the highway system and the mass transportation system or the US Postal system. Get a grip, folks.

    To impeach is to bring an accusation against, President Clinton was impeached, the impeachment did not result in a removal from office.

    civiltongue – hmm… well he was impeached by the house. You can argue it was partisan, but not exactly accurate to say it didn’t happen. Either way, it matters not. This will be Obama’s presidency, not Clinton’s.

    Actually, he was impeached, that’s why he was put on trial before the Senate – the only way a president ends up on trial. The Senate did not convict him.

    Bill Clinton was impeached. Impeached just means he was brought up on charges, the person impeached doesn’t have to be convicted of anything. The senate held a trial, but voted to end it prior to completion.

    Jill,
    Clinton was impeached. Impeachment is the process, not whether or not they stay in office.

  • Andrew

    Actually Clinton was impeached. He just was not convicted. I am not trying to bring down opinion of Clinton, as I think he was a phenomenal president. I just wanted to clarify any misunderstanding.

    I always thought the word “impeach” was funny. It sounds like they throw peaches at you or something. So I bet impeachment would happen a lot in Georgia, if that were the case, although in his speech announcing his (subsequently abandoned) presidential race in South Carolina, Stephen Colbert did say that SC’s peaches were “more juiciful” than Georgia’s… so maybe more impeachment actually happens in South Carolina and we just don’t know about it.

    from WikiPedia:
    “Bill Clinton was impeached on December 19, 1998 by the House of Representatives on articles charging perjury (specifically, lying to a Federal Grand Jury (by a 228–206 vote) and obstruction of justice (by a 221–212 vote).”

    Jill, you need to take a pill and relax. I see people all around spewing hated and anger and it is WRONG!
    This election has been extremely telling. Good Presidents and great leaders do not divid their countries into “real” people and not real people, patriots and unpatriotic, blue states and red states. They do not vilify and demonize other people because of the views and opinions they express.
    In a free country people can and should have a wide range of opinions and political philosophy; they should be entitled to be all kinds of religions; and we should live peacefully next to people from different nations and regions.
    This elections has shown that McCain and Palin, by their own actions, do not have the qualities to be leaders of this great country.
    We don’t need more division and hatred. We need to come together and find solutions to our economic crisis and a foreign policy that hurt America all over the world.
