President Obama is gaining praises this morning because of his ability to deliver and take jokes at the White House Correspondents Associtation Dinner. 

Obama joked about a wide variety of subjects...from NBC's poor ratings, to Taylor Swift. 

Most people thought the President did a great job; getting several ovations during his speech. 

The President closed his speech by touching on the nation's recent tragedies in Boston and Texas.  He praised a wide variety of people, from the first responders to the local journalists for serving the public good.
