The Comedy Central talk show host of the Colbert Report urged the President to ignore his low approval ratings, saying they were based on reality, “and reality has a well-known liberal bias.”
"I believe that the government that governs best is a government that governs least, and by these standards we have set up a fabulous government in Iraq."
Colbert complained that he was “surrounded by the liberal media who are destroying this country, except for Fox News. Fox believes in presenting both sides of the story — the president’s side and the vice president’s side."
According to Editor and Publisher, Colbert also made biting cracks about missing WMDs, “photo ops” on aircraft carriers and at hurricane disasters, melting glaciers and Vice President Cheney shooting people in the face. He advised the crowd, "if anybody needs anything at their tables, speak slowly and clearly on into your table numbers and somebody from the N.S.A. will be right over with a cocktail."
"When the president decides something on Monday,” said Colbert, “he still believes it on Wednesday - no matter what happened Tuesday."
People shouldn’t compare the recent white house shakeup with rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. “This administration is soaring, not sinking,” he said. “If anything, they are re-arranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg.”
As Colbert walked from the podium, the president and First Lady gave him quick nods, unsmiling, and handshakes, and left immediately. Unfortunately, he’s expected to be back on the job all too soon.
