President Obama made his way to The Daily Show with John Stewart for the sixth time since taking office, Thursday (Oct. 18), and explained why he lost the first debate against Mitt Romney.

Wearing a pink wristband in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the POTUS admitted to having an “off night” during round one of a three-part verbal sparring session with Romney, saying that the “presentation was not the way it needed to be.” After Stewart asked if he knew “which debate was which,” Obama laughed and said that no matter the defeat, both debates held the same issues. “Governor Romney makes a good presentation but the fundamentals he’s calling for are the same policies that got us into this mess.”

He also acknowledged a group of “amazing women warriors” from the USO, who happened to be sitting in the audience, and spoke on political barriers in Washington,  among other topics. The interview ended with the president sending a message to the American people: “There is no excuse not to vote,” he said.

During the second debate, Romney stumbled through many questions and answers but it may not have been his own doing. Reports claim that CNN debate moderator Candy Crowley was being biased towards Romney, cutting him off when he ran out of time, and discrediting his claims about the president’s response to the attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

Although fairing much better in the second debate, the third showdown with Romney could go either way.

Tune in to watch the president on The Daily Show tonight at 11 p.m. EST on Comedy Central.
