Jon Stewart Mocks Obama’s New Video While Exposing Broken Campaign Promise

It seems Jon Stewart is becoming less and less a fan of President Obama every day.

Last week he hammered the president over the assertion that NATO would be taking over the war in Libya. This week, he‘s lampooning the president’s new campaign video and one of his biggest, broken campaign promises: transparency.

In the segment, Stewart is baffled by the “supporters” used in the president’s new video. How’d we go from “yes we can” to “you know, whatever?” he asks. He then quickly moves on to pointing out one of the most ironic news items of last week — that Obama received a transparency award in secret.

It will be interesting to see as the campaign picks up if Stewart’s disillusion is because of what the president is doing, or whether he’s upset with what the president is not doing. Is he upset Obama is making harmful decisions, or is he angry he isn’t liberal enough? We’ll see.
