Obama pleads for patience from Stewart on ‘Daily Show’…..

Kinda late isn’t he?

“When we promised during campaign ‘change you can believe in,’ it wasn’t change you can believe in in 18 months,” Obama said.

During the taping of the show, which was scheduled to air later Wednesday night, Obama defended his record and took issue with host Stewart’s accusation that the healthcare legislation was “timid.”

“”John, I love your show, but this is something where I have a profound disagreement with you,” Obama said. “This notion that health care was timid.”

Obama defended his landmark domestic agenda accomplishment, laying out the ways it has expanded coverage.

“”This is what most people would say is as significant a piece of legislation as we have seen in this country’s history,” Obama said. “What happens is it gets discounted because [the] assumption is we didn’t get 100 percent of what we wanted, we only get 90 percent of what we wanted — so let’s focus on the 10 percent we didn’t get.”
