Biden jokes about his boss

Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Vice President Joe Biden poked fun at Barack Obama’s do-no-wrong reputation as he spoke at an annual white-tie gathering of journalists and top administration officials Saturday night.

Obama, the first president in decades not to attend the Gridiron Club dinner during his first year in office, couldn’t make it because he’s busy preparing for Easter, Biden said.

“He thinks it’s about him,” Biden said of the holiday. Obama spent the weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the evening’s Republican speaker, had another explanation for the media and politicians assembled at a Washington ballroom for the festivities.

“He’s just not that into you,” Schwarzenegger said, referring to the book and movie of the same title.
