Bush Hails Troops on 'Colbert Report'

Former President George W. Bush has a hearty message for troops serving in Iraq — even when he delivers it on a silly TV comedy show.

Appearing in a pretaped spot during Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" on Thursday, Bush hailed the troops for their great courage and endurance.

"Laura and I send our greetings to our servicemen and women. Your achievements in Iraq have earned you a special place in American history. You are men and women of great courage and endurance and that's gonna come in handy: I've sat through Stephen's stuff before."

"The Colbert Report," with Stephen Colbert as its blustery host, is originating this week from Camp Victory on the western edge of Baghdad. The LA Times reports that not only President Obama but also Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. John McCain, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton jumped on Colbert's stage, with brief video "shout outs" to the troops.
