Jon Stewart on Obama 2012 Campaign: "How Did We Go From 'Yes We Can' to 'Ya Know, Whatever'?"

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart mocked the "stunning" news that President Obama will run for reelection in 2012 and critiqued Obama's first campaign video. "Those were the best people you could come up with for your opening campaign video? They're all exhausted," Stewart joked. "How did we go from 'Yes we can' to 'Ya know, whatever'?"

Stewart then delved deeper, pointing out the notable differences between Obama's 2008 campaign promises and the reality of his administration, including his promise to make the White House more transparent. That... hasn't so much happened. Watch the video for more details:
