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?"
"Born in the U.S.A," belted out Bruce Springsteen, 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.

Obama gets laughs at first Gridiron Club dinner as president
I still don’t understand how people of such extreme opposite sides of the spectrum can be on the same stage at the same time, outside of a debate.
Oh! Wait a minute. I forgot. They’re all politicians.
Gov. Daniels, please try to control yourself. We are fighting for our country. It’s time to stop playing nice. Same goes to all you other, supposed, conservatives.
I am a birther.
We own the Kenyan. He is scared.
It’s actually funny that he is as obsessed with his origins as we are.
I am starting to think that he had ayers put the birth certificate comment into Dreams of My Father deliberately because even back then he knew he had potential eligibility problems. It’s sure sticking in his craw now...
Joking about it does not make it go away, Barack.
I’d sooner be caught in bed with one of those attendees, than attend a dinner with them.
At least the former can be explained.
I wonder if Project Veritas got invited...
I’m not amused.
I wonder if the so-called “journalists” at this dinner realize that when he calls for “Born in the USA” to be played, that he is making fun of THEM.
He is daring them to prove him wrong, knowing not a one of them has the stones to look into it.
He’s peeing on their heads, telling them it’s raining. And these chump journalists think they are “in on the joke.”
But the joke is on them.

( snort!) I’m not laughing.
It is not funny.
“Interesting tweets regarding the Gridiron:
RT @toddstarnes Obama to part at the exclusive Gridiron dinner WH press pool WILL NOT BE ALLOWED INSIDE.
RT @markknoller &btw why is span & wh press pool barred from covering gridiron dinner? How is this a transparent presidency, sir?”
RT @Drudge_Report Elite journalist club bans CSPAN from covering Obama at posh dinner... http://bit.ly/i0uZDG
You are right on.
Imagine those same journalists who just laugh and laugh about the inference that there is no evidence Obama is eligible, if they found in Feb 2001 a yellowed newspaper article showing that daddy and Barbara bush were in china the entire month of W’s birth. Tell me the queries would ever have left the front page until he was forced to prove his natural born status...
A family is slaughtered in Israel, including an infant with his throat cut and another son stabbed in the heart.
Gas will be hitting 5 dollars a gallon soon. No one will be able to afford gas to drive to work to make the money to buy the gas.
But our savior spent the day golfing & schmoozing.
Jeez, I was thinking of, “Who are you?”
Produce the birth certificate.
Given the severity of the situation in Japan, I find the attendance of elected officials very disrespectful.
