|The producers of History's enormous ratings hit "The Bible" may want to add a disclaimer to future episodes of the religious miniseries: Any resemblance between Satan and President Obama is purely coincidental. Given its subject matter, it was all but inevitable that "The Bible" would become a magnet for controversy, and so it has, though not for the reasons you might expect -- like, say, its emphasis on violence or its decidedly European-looking cast. No, the reason that executive producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett found themselves on the defensive on Monday is that a number of viewers, including conservative pundit Glenn Beck, have noticed a resemblance between Obama and Mohamen Mehdi Ouzaani, the actor who plays the Devil in the miniseries. Prompted by the non-troversy, History issued a statement Monday strongly denying any link between Obama and the Prince of Darkness.|
