A former top aide to George W. Bush tells U.S. News and World Report that the president was visibly angered by Stephen Colbert's performance at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner Saturday night. "I've been there before, and I can see that he is [angry]," the former aide says. "He's got that look that he's ready to blow."
