By Doina Chiacu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama poked fun at himself and what he called a hard year but aimed his most caustic humor at Washington gridlock on Saturday when the political and media elites gathered at the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner. "In 2008 my slogan was, 'Yes we can.' In 2013, it was control-alt-delete," Obama joked to an audience also studded with film and television stars. "At one point, things got so bad the 47 percent called Mitt Romney to apologize," he said, referring to 2012 presidential campaign scandal in which the Republican candidate was secretly taped saying that 47 percent of Americans have become reliant on government handouts. More than 2,000 guests packed the ballroom of the Washington Hilton, where the capital's political and media worlds collide every year in lubricated goodwill punctuated by a long dash of glamour on loan from Hollywood.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Little was sacred when President Barack Obama tossed out playful but pointed jokes Saturday night — not even his own health care plan.
