Bush tempers jocular correspondents event

WASHINGTON (AP) President Bush tempered lighthearted remarks to a gathering of journalists Saturday with a declaration that the nation is in a "period of testing and sacrifice" spearheaded by a "new generation of Americans as brave and decent as any before it."


He was followed by "Tonight" show host Jay Leno, who stuck to humor.

Noting that Bush made $400,000 last year, Leno said "he doesn't do it for the money he does it for the eight months of vacation each year" a reference to the president's frequent stays on his Texas ranch.

In a bipartisan barb, Leno said: "If John Kerry is elected, he would be the first president to deliver the State of the Union address and the rebuttal" a reference to charges that Kerry flip-flops.

The association also honored winners of its annual journalism awards.

Mike Allen of The Washington Post won the $1,000 Merriman Smith Award for outstanding presidential coverage under deadline pressure for his coverage of Bush's secret Thanksgiving trip to Iraq. Allen was the only newspaper reporter on the trip.

David Sanger of The New York Times won the association's $1,000 Aldo Beckman Award for journalistic excellence for a series of stories he wrote detailing Bush's decision-making process. Sanger won the Smith award last year.

Russell Corollo and Mei-ling Hopgood of the Dayton (Ohio) Daily News shared a $2,500 prize for "Casualties of Peace," a seven-day series that revealed an outbreak of violence against Peace Corps volunteers. They won the Edgar A. Poe Award for reporting of national or regional significance.

The White House Correspondents Association was formed in 1914 as a liaison between the press and the president. Every president since Calvin Coolidge has attended the dinner.
