President Barack Obama took shots at his poll drops, birthers, death panels, and Arizona's new immigration law on Saturday night.
Obama opened for comedian Jay Leno at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, noting that Leno was the "only person whose ratings fell more than mine.
"I'm also glad I'm speaking first, because we've all seen what happens when someone takes the time slot after Leno," Obama said in reference to the Conan O'Brien "Tonight Show" fiasco.
But, the president joked, "I know my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth."
Leno prodded back at Obama when it was his turn at bat. First up: the controversy over Obama's plans with the space program.
"We can point to one achievement during his administration," Leno said. "We did get one astronaut on 'Dancing on the Stars.'"
"He loves to socialize," Leno added of the president. "Healthcare. Car companies."
"And we all know what happens in Arizona when you don't have ID," Obama said, taking a shot at the controversial law that has sparked protests -- and calls on Capitol Hill to move on immigration reform. "Adios amigos!"
But instead, the president focused on the domestic priority that he spent much of his term thus far getting pushed through.
"There aren't a few secret provisions in the healthcare plan," Obama said. "There are, like, hundreds."

"You know what really tickles me?" Obama said. "Eric Massa."
Obama addressed Massa's charge that chief of staff Rahm Emanuel confronted him naked and screaming obscenities in the congressional showers.
"To which I say, welcome to my world," Obama said.
Shouldn’t he be in Louisiana?
He wasn’t smiling when he said thathe looked angry!
This article spelled out the f word, I stared it.
The White House Correspondents' Association Dinner was tonight, your only chance to catch Justin Bieber and Tim Geithner in the same room. You weren't invited; neither were we. What did we miss? Jokes!
Obama's speech cut a wide and withering swathe through the political and cultural landscape: Zinging Jay Leno, Scott Brown, Sarah Palin, Politico, Fox, CNN, the Jonas Brothers, the GOP, Eric Massa and a lot of other stuff!
He opened with a nod to Biden's infamous "big f*****g deal" gaffe:
Did he actually say "f*****g" or what? It is unclear but this is a matter of national importance?
Naw, he sent SWAT
After he relieved them of duty intimidating little ole ladies singing "God Bless America"
Ha-Ha-Ha. What a joker.
Why so sociialist?
Nice that he has time for golf and celebrity dinners, while illegals shoot policemen with AK47s.
Meanwhile Brownie Shirtie Naploitano is doin a heckuva job down there in Louisiana.
He is not funny, I found all of those so called jokes quite disturbing. He sucks.
>>> “I know my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth.”
Well, not really. He's got to wait till the oil gets thick enough and develops an asphaltic crust so's he can walk out on the gulf waters and lower their ambient level to one lower than the other oceans!!!
Then he'll just walk over and close the danged valve!!!
What are you thinking to ask such an insolent question of the dark force???
Kenya? (see tagline)
Obama is a stain and shame on the President’s office.
DC Knows that Obama is Ineligible for Office
Yeah, Yuk Yuk Yuk Hussein.
Coal mine blows up, multiple deaths
Drilling rig blows up and sinks, multiple deaths
Epic oil slick washing ashore gulf ecosystem
Second drilling rig sinks
Boston water supply catastrophic rupture
Car bomb suspected in Times Square
Yuk Yuk Yuk you Kenyan impostor. Go take a shower with Rahm.
So why are you sending the military to the BP Macondo blowout? Are they going to shoot it with torpedos? Or is there a military threat to US oil production??
Isn’t it funny how President Bush never did any of this crap? Did he appear on any late night television shows during either election or during his eight years in office?
What would have happened if he had appeared? Can you imagine the outcry from the eneMedia?
He ended his comments on Massa/Ballet dancer by saying something inappropriate like “I feel it”.
He wasn’t funny tonight but rather came across as condescending and halting in his supreme arrogance,.
Seemed like Leno wanted to bail in the middle of his ill received comments..
As one Freeper so wisely said it, “Obama is amused by us Americans”..
HE is in fact a disgrace to our nation.
With this performance tonight, my guess is that once he is out of office, he will proudly state that his wife was correct in talking about his homeland of Kenyan.
Furthermore, I would be unsurprised if he then (or later) freely admits that he is actually an illegal alien because his mother never bothered to have him properly registered.
President Bush did attend the White House Correspondence Dinners and he was quite funny as I recall.
He is soo Presidential. . . Over 900 days left. . . How will we survive?
