Barack Obama

About Bob Woodward of the Washington Post:
"Some folks couldn't make it this evening," Obama said during his remarks at the dinner. "Bob Woodward sends his regrets, which Gene Sperling predicted. I have to admit this whole brouhaha had me a little surprised. Who knew Gene could be so intimidating? Or let me phrase it differently: Who knew anybody named Gene could be this intimidating? Now I know that some folks think we responded to Woodward too aggressively. But, hey, ... can anybody tell me when an administration has ever regretted picking a fight with Bob Woodward? What's the worst that could happen?"

About: Ed Herny of Fox News:
"I want to acknowledge Ed Henry, who is here -- who is the fearless leader of the Washington press corps now," Obama said. "And at Ed's request, tonight I will take one question from the press. Jay, do we have a question? Surprisingly, it's a question from Ed Henry. 'Mr. President, will you be taking any questions tonight?' I'm happy to answer that. No, Ed, I will not."
