Jon Stewart: Disappointed in President Obama

by at . Comments

Like other famous Democrats, Jon Stewart is not pleased with Barack Obama.

In the wake of Matt Damon expressing disappointment with the Commander-in-Chief, the Daily Show host has come out in the latest issue of Rolling Stone and said, above all else, he's simply confused by the President.

"I'm not sure what he truly thinks is the right path," Stewart tells the magazine. "Other than that he believes the wealthy should pay a little bit more of their fair share."

Adds the comedian:

"He ran on this idea that the system and the methodology are corrupt," he says. "It felt like the country was upset enough that he had the momentum needed to re-evaluate how business is done. Instead, when he got elected, he acted as though the system is so entrenched that it has to be managed... I'm surprised at how much he deferred to the legislative process."

Stewart's feelings on Obama are in stark contract to how he views Bruce Springsteen.

"You would go see his show and he would blow your fucking mind for four hours. At a certain point, you'd want to go up onstage and be like, 'Guys! It's OK. I got my money's worth, like, two and a half hours ago. Save yourself! I don't want you to burn out,. You're giving too much! We do not deserve what you've done here tonight! A lot of us are jackasses!"
