Obama Takes Humorous Jabs at Health Care Stumble

ObamaWASHINGTON (AP) — Little was sacred when President Barack Obama handed out playful but pointed jabs before a hotel ballroom full of politicians, journalists and media celebrities — not even his own health care plan.

The annual White House Correspondents’ dinner has become a tradition in the nation’s capital, promising a black-tie evening of celebrity gazing and humor — much of it from the president himself.

In a crack about the botched rollout of the healthcare.gov website, Obama said: “In 2008 my slogan was `Yes we can.’ In 2013 my slogan was `Control-alt-delete.”

Obama said that the health care website launch became one of the year’s biggest movies. On a video screen flashed the poster for the movie “Frozen.”
