I'm the President of the United States, and I'm opening for Jimmy Kimmel. I have the nuclear codes. Why am I telling knock-knock jokes to Kim Kardashian? [Inaudible] Why is she famous anyway?

They're already laughing. It's terrific. Chuck Todd -- love you, brother. [Laughter] I'm delighted to see some of the cast members of Glee are here. [Laughter] And Jimmy Kimmel, it's an honor, man.

[Applause] Now, this year, we gather in the midst of a heated election season. And Axelrod tells me I should never miss a chance to reintroduce myself to the American people.

So tonight, this is how I'd like to begin: My name is Barack Obama. My mother was born in Kansas. My father was born in Kenya. And I was born, of course, in Hawaii. [Laughter, applause] In 2009, I took office in the face of some enormous challenges. Now, some have said I blame too many problems on my predecessor, but let's not forget that's a practice that was initiated by George W. Bush. [Laughter] Since then, Congress and I have certainly had our differences; yet, I've tried to be civil, to not take any cheap shots.

[Laughter] Let's give them a big round of applause. [Applause] Despite many obstacles, much has changed during my time in office. Four years ago, I was locked in a brutal primary battle with Hillary Clinton.

Not even the mind reader knew what they were thinking. [Laughter] Of course, the White House Correspondents' Dinner is known as the prom of Washington D.C. -- a term coined by political reporters who clearly never had the chance to go to an actual prom. [Laughter] Our chaperone for the evening is Jimmy Kimmel -- [Applause] -- who is perfect for the job since most of tonight's audience is in his key demographic -- people who fall asleep during Nightline. [Laughter] Jimmy got his start years ago on The Man Show.

A pit bull is delicious. [Laughter, applause] A little soy sauce. [Laughter] Now, I know at this point many of you are expecting me to go after my likely opponent, Newt Gingrich.

Recently, his campaign criticized me for slow jamming the news with Jimmy Fallon. In fact, I understand Governor Romney was so incensed he asked his staff if he could get some equal time on The Merv Griffin Show. [Laughter] Still, I guess Governor Romney is feeling pretty good about things because he took a few hours off the other day to see The Hunger Games -- some of you have seen it.

It's a movie about people who court wealthy sponsors and then brutally savage each other until only one contestant is left standing. I'm sure this was a really good change of pace for him. [Laughter] I have not seen The Hunger Games; not enough class warfare for me. [Laughter] Of course, I know everybody is predicting a nasty election, and thankfully, we've all agreed that families are off limits.

Dogs, however, are apparently fair game. [Laughter] And while both campaigns have had some fun with this, the other day I saw a new ad from one of these outside groups that, frankly, I think crossed the line. I know Governor Romney says he has no control over what his super PACs do, but can we show the ad real quick?

[Video begins] Back back in 1983, you took your Irish setter Seamus, on a 12-hour road trip tied for the roof of your car in a kennel. He climbed up there regularly, enjoyed himself, and my guess is he liked it a lot better in his kennel than he would have liked it inside. Finally, a candidate with the courage to fight for a dog's freedom, to feel the wind in his fur.

[Video continues] But what about Barack Obama? Under his failed leadership, man's best friend has been forced into government-controlled automobiles. Just imagine the European-style dogs socialism Obama has planned for the next four years. More government handouts. A life of government dependency. Indoctrinating our children. A left wing social agenda. Leading from behind.

[Laughter] Now, if I do win a second term as President, let me just say something to all the -- [Applause] -- let me just say something to all my conspiracy-oriented friends on the right who think I'm planning to unleash some secret agenda: You're absolutely right.

Michelle said, yeah. [Laughter] I sing that to her sometimes. [Laughter] In my first term, we ended the war in Iraq; in my second term, I will win the war on Christmas. [Laughter] In my first term, we repealed the policy known as "don't ask, don't tell" -- [Applause] -- wait, though; in my second term, we will replace it with a policy known as, it's raining men. [Laughter] In my first term, we passed health care reform; in my second term, I guess I'll pass it again. [Applause] I do want to end tonight on a slightly more serious note -- whoever takes the oath of office next January will face some great challenges, but he will also inherit traditions that make us greater than the challenges we face.

And one of those traditions is represented here tonight: a free press that isn't afraid to ask questions, to examine and to criticize. And in service of that mission, all of you make sacrifices. Tonight, we remember journalists such as Anthony Shadid and Marie Colvin -- [Applause] -- who made the ultimate sacrifice as they sought to shine a light on some of the most important stories of our time.

So whether you are a blogger or a broadcaster, whether you take on powerful interests here at home or put yourself in harm's way overseas, I have the greatest respect and admiration for what you do. I know sometimes you like to give me a hard time -- and I certainly like to return the favor -- [Laughter] -- but I never forget that our country depends on you.
