President Barack Obama is making fun of his name, politics and the presidential campaign in a freewheeling political romp where he's exchanging one-liners with rival Mitt Romney in a humorous break from the heated presidential contest.

Obama recalled his panned first debate, noting that millions who watched the second debate hadn't focused on the first debate. And he said that would include him.

The president spoke Thursday night at the annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, a Catholic charity fundraiser that attracts top New York luminaries from politics, the media and finance

Obama noted that Mitt is actually Romney's middle name. Pausing, he added with some longing: "Wish I could use my middle name."

It is Hussein.
