[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

>> Jon: WELCOME TO "THE DAILY

SHOW."

MY NAME IS JON STEWART.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A NICE ONE

FOR YOU TONIGHT.

FROM "THE NEW YORK TIMES" 538

BLOCK, STATISTICIAN ALL-STAR

NATE SILVER WILL BE JOINING US

ON THE SHOW.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

AND THEN TOMORROW NIGHT IT'S

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA.

BUT STILL...

[LAUGHTER]

THESE PEOPLE GET TO...

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

NATE SILVER, THE PRESIDENT OF

STATISTICIAN-STAN.

AS YOU KNOW, LAST NIGHT THE

PRESIDENTIAL CAM PAN HEADED TO

HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY WHERE THE

CANDIDATES DEBATED FROM A

DIVERSE CROWD HARD OF LONG

ISLANDERS RANGING FROM ITALIAN

GUYS TO OTHER ITALIAN GUYS TO A

JEWISH GUY AND HIS MOM.

[LAUGHTER]

SUCH DIVERSITY IN LONG ISLAND.

THE FIRST QUESTION SOMEHOW ENDED

UP ON THE AUTO INDUSTRY RESCUE.

>> I KNOW YOU KEEP SAYING, YOU

WANT TO TAKE DETROIT BANKRUPT.

WELL, THE PRESIDENT TOOK DETROIT

BANKRUPT.

YOU TOOK GENERAL MOTORS

BANKRUPT.

YOU TOOK CHRYSLER BANKRUPT.

THAT WAS PRE-SIZELY WHAT I

RECOMMENDED AND ULTIMATELY WHAT

HAPPENED.

>> Jon: OKAY.

IN FACT, OBAMA'S PUBLICLY

FINANCED DETROIT AUTO INDUSTRY

MANAGED BANKRUPTCY IS NOT

PRECISELY WHAT ROMNEY

RECOMMENDED.

ROMNEY PRECISELY RECOMMENDED

PRIVATE CREDIT, WHICH AT THE

TIME WAS TO BE PRECISE

NON-EXISTENT.

MEANING UNDER HIS PLAN DETROIT'S

BANKRUPTCY WOULD HAVE BEEN

UNMANAGED AND QUITE PERMANENT.

SO THE BIG QUESTION WOULD BE:

WHICH VERSION OF BARACK OBAMA

WOULD RESPOND.

THE FIRST DEBATE, SLEEPY TIME MA

GILL CUTTY OR PRETTY TALK JONES.

>> CANDY, WHAT GOVERNOR ROMNEY

SAID JUST ISN'T TRUE.

>> Jon: IT'S ALIVE!

IT'S ALIVE!

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

WHOA, WHOA.

YES, PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

DECIDED TO ATTEND THIS DEBATE.

[LAUGHTER]

AND THE TWO CANDIDATES COULD

FINALLY HAVE A TRUTHFUL,

SUBSTANTIVE DISCUSSION ABOUT HOW

MUCH THEY [BLEEPED] HATE EACH

OTHER.

[LAUGHTER]

>> GOVERNOR, WE HAVE ACTUALLY

PRODUCED MORE OIL.

>> NO, NO, HOW MUCH DID YOU CUT

LICENSES AND PERMITS ON FEDERAL

LAND AND FEDERAL...

>> PRODUCTION IS UP.

>> IT'S DOWN.

>> NO IT ISN'T.

>> PRODUCTION ON GOVERNMENT LAND

AND OIL IS DOWN 14%.

>> GOVERNOR, WHAT YOU'RE SAYING

JUST NOT TRUE.

>> YOU'LL GET YOUR CHANCE IN A

MOMENT.

I'M STILL SPEAKING.

THE ANSWER IS --

>> IF YOU'RE ASKING A QUESTION.

>> THAT WASN'T A QUESTION.

[AUDIENCE REACTS]

>> JON JON I
