President Obama Jabs Republicans, Media, Obamacare at Correspondence Dinner

Watch Obama Skewer Republicans, Media, and Himself at White House Correspondents Dinner

President Obama shows off his sense of humor at Correspondents dinner. 

President Obama took on the role of stand-up comedian Saturday night at the annual White House Correspondents Association dinner, when Washington insiders get together with Hollywood celebrities for a night of drinking and backslapping. After a surprisingly unamusing video featuring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the real veep, Joe Biden, President Obama went up to speak and immediately turned the jokes on himself before moving on to other targets.

One of the highlights came at the end of his 20-minute routine, when former Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius appeared on stage to try to help Obama “fix” a technical glitch he was having with a video. “I got this,” Sebelius said. “I see it all the time.”

Some of the president’s best jokes of the night (transcript of his remarks available here):

On the challenges of last year: I admit it — last year was rough. Sheesh. At one point, things got so bad, the 47 percent called Mitt Romney to apologize.
