President Barack Obama gave a very funny and compelling speech, over the weekend, at the annual White House Correspondence dinner.
Beginning his speech, the president joked about his poor ratings. “I admit it, last year was rough. Sheesh. At one point things got so bad, the 47 percent called Mitt Romney to apologize,” he stated.
“Folks are saying, with my sagging poll numbers, my fellow Democrats don’t really want me campaigning with them. And I don’t think that’s true, although I did notice the other day that Sasha needed a speaker at career day and she invited Bill Clinton.”
He later went on to joke about the dysfunction in Congress. “Washington seems more dysfunctional than ever. Gridlock has gotten so bad in this town, we have to wonder: ‘What did we do to piss off Chris Christie so bad?'”
And, “These days, the House Republicans actually give John Boehner a harder time than they give me — which means orange really is the new black.”
