I enjoyed the 2008 version of this event quite a bit more, and thought John McCain was actually pretty funny.

This year, someone needed to tell Mitt Romney that you're supposed to make a few jokes about yourself at these events. He seemed to think it was a roast of President Obama and treated it more like another campaign stop, rather than a charity event.

I think the President did a lot better job of keeping things a little more light-hearted and with making fun of himself and his last debate performance in particular. If you missed Gov. Romney and President's remarks this Thursday, you can judge for yourself here.

Can you help us out?
