The White House Correspondents Dinner 2012 was President Barack Obama's chance to shine again. Every year he gets funnier and wittier and more comfortable with skewering all of the many things that happened in the world and in pop culture over the year that has passed.
There is no time Obama kicks more booty than at this dinner. There is something about a President who is not afraid to dig in (in every sense of the word) and Obama is that man. I am so proud to have someone so smart as our President -- and as we all know, it was not always so (George W. Bush, I am looking at you).
Here is a highlight reel and his 10 best lines of the night:
More from The Stir: Keith Olbermann's Jimmy Kimmel Comments Prove He Can't Take a Joke
On Mitt Romney:
We both think of our wives as our better halves, and the American people agree to an insulting extent.
We both have degrees from Harvard. I have one, he has two. What a snob.
It's great to be here in the vast, magnificent Hilton ballroom. Or what Mitt Romney would call 'a little fixer upper.'
On pop culture:
What am I doing here? I'm opening for Jimmy Kimmel and telling knock-knock jokes to Kim Kardashian.
Four years ago I was locked in a brutal primary battle with Hillary Clinton. Four years later, she won't stop drunk texting me from Cartagena.
On the Secret Service scandal:
I have to get the Secret Service home in time for their new curfew.
In the first term I sang Al Green. In my second term, I'm going with Young Jeezy.
On the birth control hearings:
Jimmy got his start on 'The Man Show.' In Washington, that's what we call a Congressional hearing on contraception.
On the state of journalism (and the Huffington Post's Pulitzer prize):
There is no one out there linking to the kind of hard hitting journalism that the HuffPo is linking to every single day.
On Donald Trump (again):
We finally delivered justice to one of world's most notorious individuals (An image of Donald Trump then appeared on a screen in the ballroom).
Dang. That burns, doesn't it? Now THAT is a President I am proud to have!
