Obama heading back to Daily Show

Stewart

President Barack Obama is going all out in his attempt to retain the presidency of the United States. It was announced that Obama will be returning to The Daily Show With Jon Stewart this week for a sixth time, his second as sitting president. It is a smart move, in my opinion, as Stewart seems to lean towards the liberal side of politics (I think that is a fair statement to make that not too many people would argue against) and, as the narrowing polls have shown, Obama needs to keep his campaign moving in a positive direction.

Obama's last appearance on the show was in October 2010 when it was broadcast from Washington D.C. for a week. 

It is not known when Obama is taping, but it is expected to air October 18 at 11 p.m. EST on Comedy Central.

Obama also recently appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman.

Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, has declined appearing with Letterman, which caused comedian Jack Black to "perform" as Romney recently and do a cupcake interview with Letterman. 

Are you going to tune in to Obama talking to Stewart? I think it could be the most interesting interview he does prior to the election, as Stewart is willing to ask tough questions.

Thank you for this opportunity...There is a reason that the people chose Obama...the way of simply gathering wealth, flashing it without concern for the hard working people needs to be changed. I`m sick of suits. Nuff said. L K Pool.

You can disagree all you'd like. His show is geared towards the left; he mocks Glenn Beck and has debates against Bill O'Reilly. He hasn't hammered Obama in any way close to what he did to Bush. But ultimately, you're disagreeing with what Stewart himself has said.

In 2000, on Larry King Live, he had this exhange with King:

KING: I think you're a Democrat, Jon.

STEWART: I think that's probably correct. I think I would say I'm more of a socialist or an independent but, yes, I mean, no one would ever I think watching our show think that, boy, that guy is just leaning so far right.

I kind of disagree with the sentiment that Stewart leans to the left. Stewart's arguments typically lean toward the center, and are typically backed up by generally rational thought. He's been fairly critical of Obama this term, and I'm sure he's not just going to be throwing softballs.

I agree. I don't think he would but I think it would be a smart move and help his image some.

Personally, I really think it would do Romney good to go on the Daily Show too. I've rarely ever seen Stewart disrespect his guests, and it would expose Romney to a lot of younger voters.
