(Newser) – Jon Stewart launched one of his most blistering attacks yet on President Obama in last night's Daily Show. Stewart blasted Obama for breaking promise after promise to reverse Bush-era abuses of executive power, Gawker notes. He showed campaign footage of Obama making promises on habeus corpus, rendition, and protection for whistleblowers. Obama and executive power is like "Frodo and the Ring," snorted Stewart.
