Last Friday's lowering of the U.S. credit rating by Standard & Poors was quickly nicknamed "the Obama downgrade" by conservative pundits. It's rhetoric, of course, but the President's soft response to the country's economic issues hasn't been doing him any favors.

So what should Obama do now? According to Daily Show correspondent Larry Wilmore, it's pretty simple: He has to be more stereotypically black! Because then he'd be able to deal with America's economic problems with the same speed and efficiency of a black man facing off against a collection agency.
