Jon Stewart on Obama's October Surprise: He's Taking a Rain Check on Campaigning

Last night, Daily Show host John Stewart did not seem happy with the sitting President. Amidst much fanfare and hand waving, he revealed that Obama's new October campaign strategy has been to simply give up. He also took the President to task for latching onto Romney's silly death-to-Big-Bird comment as if his career depended on it. See for yourself.
