Jon Stewart Goes After Obama for Lazy Response to BP Oil Spill

Tonight, The Daily Show returned from a two-week hiatus. Naturally, Jon Stewart opened with a focus on the disastrous BP oil spill. Unexpectedly, however, Stewart spent several minutes criticizing President Obama for his apparent unfocused and lazy response. Video inside.

"Get back to the motherfucking spill," Stewart screamed at one point. Here's the segment.
