Jon Stewart thinks President Obama may have been a bit too optimistic. Obama says: "This is America. We don't do what's easy. We do what's necessary." Stewart says: "Have you met America? Have you been to America?....In your little plan there, if you're wondering whether to go with necessary or easy? I'd go with easy." Here's the video:

Jimmy Kimmel, via U.S. News: "Obama said that we can overcome this crisis if we're all willing to work hard and make sacrifices. So, in other words, we're screwed."

Steven Colbert looks at the night's brilliant orator.
