President Obama joked about his lackluster debate performance to a crowd of supporters and celebrities in Los Angeles the other night.

From the AP:

"Speaking at a celebrity-led fundraiser at the Nokia Theatre, Obama came on stage after performances by such singers as Katy Perry, Jon Bon Jovi and Stevie Wonder and remarks by actor George Clooney. He marveled at how they are able to perform flawlessly night after night and then said, quote, 'I can't always say the same.'"
