Obama gives as good as he gets at 'Nerd Prom'

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama spared few from his zingers at Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner - including himself.

He stepped to the podium as DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win" played as an introduction and told the audience, "Rush Limbaugh warned you about this - second term, baby."

His advisers were "a little worried about the new rap entrance music," and suggested that he kick off his speech with jokes at his own expense to "take himself down a peg." But, the president responded, "after 4½ years, how many pegs are there left?"

    @ Bassman – If Republicans [McCain or Romney] had succeeded Bush, that job you say you were ate last night would have been losy somewhere in No. 43`s job loss bleed rate because those GOP`ers would have continued the same FAILED economic policies. Be glad you have seen a reversal of the bad economy Obama was handed. This I might add is with ZERO help from Republicans in Congress since their STATED OBJECTIVE was to make him FAIL.
