    Highlights of Zillow’s Interview with President Obama

    Mr. Rascoff: The housing market has come a long way in the last year and we’re all very happy to see most local markets bouncing back after the housing recession. Still there are concerns about the future. And we’ve received thousands of questions over the last couple of days via social media. Today we’ll pose some of these questions — your questions — to the President. – And I was wondering how you feel rising interest rates over the last three months are going to affect the housing recovery going forward.

    Obama Releases Birth Video at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner

    President Barack Obama: Tonight, for the first time, I am releasing my official birth video. (Laughter.) Now, I warn you — (laughter) — no one has seen this footage in 50 years, not even me. But let’s take a look. (“Secret Birth Video” plays.) [It’s a clip from the “The Lion King” movie.] (Applause.) Oh, well. Back to square one. (Laughter.) I want to make clear to the Fox News table: That was a joke. (Laughter.) That was not my real birth video. (Laughter.) That was a children’s cartoon. (Laughter.) Call Disney if you don’t believe me.

    JOEL MCHALE: All right, everybody. Here we go. I am the last person standing between you and your after-party. So in just an hour and 15 minutes, you’ll be walking out of here, all right? (Laughter.) I’m going to break Jay Leno‘s record tonight. Strap in. Here we go. (Laughter.) Good evening, Mr. President — or as Paul Ryan refers to you, yet another inner-city minority relying on the federal government to feed and house your family. (Laughter.)
