RADIO AND TELEVISION CORRESPONDENTS' DINNER

President Barack Obama on Thursday capitalized on an earlier remark by Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-Ind.) that Republicans had to “get something” out of negotiations to reopen the government, even if they didn’t know what they wanted in concessions.

“Just yesterday one House Republican said — I didn’t make this up,” Obama said while speaking at a small construction company in Rockville, Md., “‘We’re not going to be disrespected. We have to get something out of this, and I don’t know what that even is.’” The quote drew laughs from the audience.
