President Obama tells Jon Stewart about first debate: 'Obviously, I had an off-night'
After weeks of listening to Jon Stewart critique his campaign, President Barack Obama appeared on the “The Daily Show” Thursday and had a spiited interview with the Comedy Central star.
The president talked about domestic and foreign issues and what went wrong for Obama during that first debate.
“Sometimes I’ll go onstage and have an open-faced turkey sandwich and a shot of NyQuil, and halfway through I’ll look up and say 'Are we on?'" Stewart said, offering his own excuse for the occasional sub-par night.
“Obviously I had an off night. The presentation wasn’t what it needed to be,” he said. “But the issues haven’t changed -- the stakes of this election are really big. Governor Romney makes a good presentation, but the fundamentals of what he’s calling for are the same policies that got us into this mess, that we've been fighting against for the past four years, trying to dig our way out of.”
