Video Part 1
Video Part 2

This thing is hilarious! The president is in attendance.



Wow, wow, what an honor. The White House correspondents’ dinner. To just sit here, at the same table with my hero, George W. Bush, to be this close to the man. I feel like I’m dreaming. Somebody pinch me. You know what; I’m a pretty sound sleeper that may not be enough. Somebody shoot me in the face.

I knew they didnt have a sense of humor. After Colbert's speech, neither the president nor the First Lady had much to say to him and were "visibly" offended!

SO- the media didnt touch that one with a 10 foot pole!!!!!

They both have a great sense of humor. President Bush was making-fun of himself before it was Colbert's turn.



Earlier, the president had addressed the crowd with a Bush impersonator alongside, with the faux-Bush speaking precisely and the real Bush deliberately mispronouncing words, such as the inevitable "nuclear." At the close, Bush called the imposter "a fine talent. In fact, he did all my debates with Senator Kerry." The routine went over well with this particular crowd -- better than did Colbert's, in fact, for whatever reason.


The problem was that Colbert's speech was crass, rude, and meanspirted. It was just shameful, if in fact you read up on it Colbert's speech didn't get many laughs at all...



In its report on the affair, USA Today asserted that some in the crowd cracked up over Colbert but others were "bewildered."

Link.


The Colbert Report is a pretty bad show, so I'm not suprised he tried to get attention with this crude and offensive stunt.

What 'stunt'? He hosted the thing!
Yeah, what a 'stunt' to accept the invitation to host it!


And his politics are well-known. It's not like this was a surprise.

I loved the audience reaction! Some were cracking up and some were wondering "Who is this guy? We don't allow people with opposing viewpoints to hang out with us, do we"?

Oh, please...

If you read the article many times in the past the host makes fun of both the President and the press Colbert just attacked the President is a crass manner.

It just made Colbert look rude, which he was. The President was much funnnier by all acounts.

Umm... Did you not see the video? Looked like he was attacking the press as well as the President, in my opinion.

From your link:



He attacked those in the press who claim that the shake-up at the White House was merely re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
...
Also lampooning the press, Colbert complained that he was “surrounded by the liberal media who are destroying this country, except for Fox News.
...
Addressing the reporters, he said, "Let's review the rules. Here's how it works. The president makes decisions, he’s the decider. The press secretary announces those decisions, and you people of the press type those decisions down. Make, announce, type. Put them through a spell check and go home.


I don't know who thought they would get Stephen Colbert to come in and kiss up to the president, but I don't know why they're crying. What?... are they surprised? If they watched his show, they'd know what they were in for!

Colbert's a genious! And hilarious at that! If George was offended it's because the truth hurts!

I'm not buying it BH,

Colbert did not attack the press he used the press to attack President Buch and his defenders. It was over the top and offensive...very crass.

Enjoy your vulgar laughs, and the hate...


I'll be loving the next three years...

A difference of opinion is not a lie, and that is all this is.

I'd rather be laughing than bitter and sour anyday!



I'm so vulgar I can't stand myself!

I agree with Boatphone that Bush is much funnier than Colbert. All Bush has to do is be himself and he makes me laugh

It's better to be informed, but I agree being bitter is unenjoyable.

Sounds horrid.

True, if I saw Rove in a tie like that I would be pretty upset...

True, that is vulgar. I can't defend the President on that one. But he was just joking with people behind the camra. Still, got me there.

Boat,

I knew you were human. You are also very visual. Me too. Sometimes pictures speak louder than words.

You have restored my faith.

Just goes to show you don't have to make things up to be funny, for there is nothing, NOTHING funnier than the truth. Kudos.

During the entire speech I didn't hear Colbert make one false statement. His set ups were the facts, his punchlines were his take on the facts. Brilliant
