Obama, Jon Stewart square off on 'The Daily Show' in DC

President Barack Obama received a raucous welcome from "The Daily Show" audience upon making his entrance, but the show's host pulled no punches when he challenged the president on the audacity of his record during a half-hour interview Wednesday night.

Noting the crowd's reaction to the first chief executive to appear on Comedy Central's satirical news show what it was like to get thunderous appluse just for walking into a room.

"It was a wonderful welcome," Obama joked. "It doesn't happen, for example, when I go to the Republican caucus meeting."
After presenting Obama with a special coffee cup -"Mug Force One" - Stewart - whose show is being filmed in D.C. in advance of his October 30 "Rally to Restore Sanity" - immediately heightened the tension in the otherwise friendly encounter by tossing one of the president's signature campaign lines back at him with his first question of the night.
