Obama: Harold Ramis Was 'One Of America's Greatest Satirists'

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama issued a statement Tuesday about filmmaker and comedian Harold Ramis' death. "Michelle and I were saddened to hear of the passing of Harold Ramis, one of America's greatest satirists, and like so many other comedic geniuses, a proud product of Chicago's Second City," the President said. "When we watched his movies...we didn't just laugh until it hurt. We questioned authority. We identified with the outsider. We rooted for the underdog." Ramis died Monday of complications related to an auto-immune system condition. He was 69.
