      • Stephen Colbert: What is the press' relationship going to be with Barack Obama as opposed to what it was with George Bush? Do you think it is going to be a different type of press to meet?
        David Gregory: No, I think the press, I think the press is doing a good job. I think the press ask the right questions. That we are in a time of crisis now, they need to ...
        Stephen Colbert: I think you ask the right question too. You ask "why are we in Iraq?" I mean that's the right question. Not, "why would we want to go to Iraq?" You wait till we are there.

      • Stephen Colbert: You said that you wished the president himself had been more reflective.
        David Gregory: Ah, look, I think in his last press conference ... I think he's reflective to a point.
        Stephen Colbert: I think he is completely reflective because the questions just bounce off of him.

      • Stephen: Tonight: A look back at President Bush's relationship with the media. I wonder if tonight's the night they finally do it. Then PETA launches a new wildlife protection campaign. I use Noah's Rule: If there's more than two, they're not endangered. And my guest is Shepard Fairey, the artist behind the iconic Obama Hope poster. And they said we'd never elect a poster President. It's my way or the toll way, no free rides. This is the Colbert Report.
