Obama Spends Saturday Night Contemplating Tragedy in Japan. Not!

Actually, President Obama spent Saturday night yucking it up at the annual Gridiron Club Dinner.
(POLITICO) — President Obama used his first appearance at the annual Gridiron Club Dinner as POTUS to push home an already labored point — with a little help from The Boss.

Taking the stage to give the evening’s closing remarks, the president looked toward the live band at the back of the room and asked, “Can we go with the song we talked about?”

The band struck up Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.,” drawing big laughs from the some 650 government officials, political figures, news executives and journalists in gathered at the Washington Renaissance hotel for the club’s 126th anniversary.

Each year at the prestigious white-tie event, Gridiron members lampoon political leaders with comedy skits and spoof songs.

I am so glad we have a aspiring actor/late night talk show host as president. If we could just get back the former actor who was actually proud to be an American and had a brain, a heart and a set of real cajones.
