    "Thank you, Nate Silver"......

    ''I must confess I really did not want to be here tonight. But I knew I had to come. That's one more problem that I inherited from George W. Bush.''
    —President Barack Obama, at the 2009 White House Correspondents' Dinner
    On his new loyal friend: ''He's warm, he's cuddly, loyal, enthusiastic; you just have to keep him in on a tight leash -- every once in a while he goes charging off and gets himself into trouble. Enough about Joe Biden.''
    —President Barack Obama, at the 2009 White House Correspondents' Dinner
    ''Who is Barack Obama? Contrary to the rumors you have heard, I was not born in a manger. I was actually born on Krypton and sent here by my father Jor-El to save the Planet Earth.''
    —Barack Obama, at the 2008 Al Smith Dinner
    ''And where is the National Public Radio table? You guys are still here? That's good. I couldn't remember where we landed on that.

    —President Obama at the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner
    On House Minority Leader John Boehner and his fake tan: ''We have a lot in common: He is a person of color. Although not a color that appears in the natural world.''
    —President Barack Obama, at the 2009 White House Correspondents' Dinner
    ''These days, I look in the mirror and I have to admit, I'm not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be.''
    —President Obama at the 2013 White House Correspondents' Dinner
    ''Now I'm sure that you've noticed that there's somebody very special in my life who is missing tonight, somebody who has always got my back, stands with me no matter what and gives me hope no matter how dark things seem. So tonight, I want to publicly thank my rock, my foundation -- thank you, Nate Silver.''
    —President Barack Obama, on the famed statistician and blogger who correctly predicted the 2012 and 2008 presidential election results
