The President, as Comedian-In-Chief

Seal of the President of the United States

President Obama was a hit at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner last week.

Jay Leno was the
headliner at the dinner, and Obama called him "the only person whose
ratings fell more than mine."

Leno observed that Obama was less aloof
than he appears … "He loves to socialize … health care, car
companies," naming industries where the Obama administration has

The President got more laughs than Leno.  Perhaps part of that was in
deference to positional power; however, give Obama some credit – he hired staff writers
from The Daily Show to come up with his material.
