Colbert Stands By His Obama/Hitler Analogy (VIDEO)

On Thursday night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart took the media to task for its response to the Arizona shooting memorial. In contrast, "The Colbert Report" praised President Obama for giving such a touching speech at the service.

But that doesn't mean he's going to stop calling him Hitler.

Colbert lamented that Obama "had to politicize it by doing a great job," but that despite the inspirational speech, Colbert explained that you can't go back once you've called someone Hitler.

"Last night, I was moved by Hitler," Colbert said. "Turns out, Hitler is much more sensitive than we give him credit for."

If you think it sounds terrible to hear Colbert refer to the President as Hitler, just wait until you see how "The New York Post" handled Obama's uplifting speech about Gabrielle Giffords.
