(Newser) – Now that Jon Stewart's back from a 2-week break he thinks the guy in the White House has been enjoying too much R&R with oil still spewing in the Gulf. The Daily Show host presented footage of President Obama vowing not to rest until the Gulf leak was plugged intercut with video of the president at numerous heritage and basketball-related events, and urged Obama to "Get back to the motherf?*#ing spill!"

Stewart, unsurprisingly, also had plenty of wrath to spare for "those terrible, terrible people" at BP, Gawker notes. A segment after the Obama piece pointed out that BP has incurred 760 willful safety violations at its US refineries since 2007, compared with 8 for Sunoco and just one for Exxon.
