Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Funny Video: Colbert Claims Obama Takes Credit for Bin Laden Death
Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Funny Video: Colbert Claims Obama Takes Credit for Bin Laden Death: "From Denny: Only satirical Colbert could sound outraged about the death of a terrorist and how he was buried in proper Muslim tradition and sleeps with the fishes now. Colbert says he is 'outraged and he is not the only one whose rage is out.'
He goes to Fox News clips of various talking heads upset Obama was respectful of Bin Laden's body. Colbert suggested they basically 'bring back the body, stuff it with candy, and let Mexicans swat it with a stick.'
Colbert via Glenn Beck goes on to discuss how President Obama received a nine point approval rating bump from the news Bin Laden is dead. To hear Glenn Beck tell it, George Bush or even a simple shoe that ordered the Bin Laden mission - they both would have gotten the approval bump. A shoe? Guess Glenn Beck doesn't think too much of his one time hero, George Bush 43. Of course, Colbert wants to know if that shoe is a Republican."
