President Obama jokes at White House dinner

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is joking about a radical second-term shakeup, shifting from "strapping young Muslim Socialist" to retiree golfer and sporting bangs like first lady Michelle's.
Obama used this year's annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner to poke fun at himself and some of his political adversaries, asking if it was still possible to be brought down a peg after 4 1/2 years as commander-in-chief.
Obama entered to rap music but then showed a picture of himself golfing on a mock magazine cover of "Senior Leisure." He noted his recent 2-for-22 basketball shooting performance at the White House Easter Egg hunt.
The president closed by noting the nation's recent tragedies in Massachusetts and Texas.
