U.S. President Barack Obama made history last night when he appeared on a comedy show, which some say further demeans the dignity of the highest office in the land.

Obama was a guest on the popular 'Daily Show With Jon Stewart,' last night.

Stewart, who is a Democrat, has been critical of Obama's politics in the past. But the political comedian/mock news anchorman took it easy on the commander-in-chief.

Stewart called Obama's attempts to reform healthcare "timid" and he jokingly referred to Obama's campaign slogan "YES WE CAN" as "Yes we can, given certain conditions, blah blah blah ... blah blah."

When Obama said, “Jon, I don’t want to lump you in with a lot of other pundits,” Stewart retorted with an equally cynical jab: “And I don’t mean to lump you in with other presidents.”

At one point, Stewart even called the president "dude" after Obama inadvertently echoed a famous George W. Bush gaffe by saying that his economic adviser, Lawrence H. Summers, had done “a heck of a job.”

Mr. Obama winced as the audience laughed at his wording and Mr. Stewart said, “You don’t want to use that phrase, dude.” [link]

Obama's next TV appearance will be on the History Channel's nerd fest 'MythBusters' next month.

    we live in a different age where media outlets are the most efficient method of reaching the masses; so miss me with that demeans the dignity of the highest office in the land crap. Jon Stewart is not your average "comedian" and i think it was pretty savvy of Obama to go on the show.

    I totally agree! He was also on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show yesterday and it really made me emotional listening to him talk. He's a much younger president that many have been so he xan keep up with them newer and more effective forms of media.

    I like it and I'm supporting him. Kick rocks with dissing the Pres.' outreach efforts, Sandra.

    he's not a freak-in magician. i can't complain cause my family hasn't seen any effects of what "Americans" are so upset about. we're good. :shrug:

  • NunyaBizniz

    I love that Obama is using all types of medias for his "campaign", this is a new age where people are advertising on social networks like Twitter and Facebook, and getting their info on blogs (I know right)! IF he wasn't reaching out thru all these outlets people would also be complaining... Like someone said earlier, "damned if you do, damned if you don't". Please let Mr Obama do what his job in peace... :coffee:

    "which some say further demeans the dignity of the highest office in the land."

    Or makes him more accessible to the masses, especially the younger more technologically savvy generation :yes:

  • PAHairston

    Hello All. Yes indeed, my president, President Barack Obama, is trying to reach the younger masses, particularly the white ones, and so far, considering the state of the union, he's doing a good job. These younguns don't have the 'baggage' that many of us older Americans carry around. Hopefully, this generation will keep him in the White House. We all need to carry our load.

  • AWESOME ARSENAL

    Sandra, even though Jon Stewart's show operates under a veil of comedy, you would be hard pressed to find a pundit as knowledgeable, quick witted, and fearless as him. Even though he is essentially on Obama's side he goes in on his administration the same way he did Bush's. The only difference being Bush's was way more incompetent and flagrantly idiotic, which gave people like Stewart ample ammunition. I suggest you youtube Jon's appearances on O'Reilly's show.

    Times have changed. We are no longer in the FDR age of the relevancy of fireside chats. Let the man embrace new media.

  • OutsidetheBox

    I thought the president idd a great job; he was very relaxed.

    And if you think Jon Stewart doesnt know about politics, you dont know Jon Stewart. :shrug:

    Jon Steward can run circles around those so called pundits out there.
