If President Barack Obama doesn't get another four years, he'll be able to make a killing on the comedy circuit.  Yesterday, the President welcomed the Los Angeles Galaxy to the East Room of the White House to congratulate the team for winning the MLS Cup last November and had them rolling on the carpet.

Obama got the laugh fest going by calling the Galaxy "the Miami Heat of soccer" before turning his attention to 37-year old David Beckham.

"We also have a young up-and-comer on the team, a guy named David Beckham," said Obama.  "I have to say I gave David a hard time— I said half his teammates could be his kids."

He turned to Becks.

"We're getting old, David."

Ba da bum.

Obama took time out to praise the midfielder— for playing in the MSL Cup final after a mid-season spinal fracture and hamstring injury— before going back into his Chris Christie— I mean— Chris Rock routine again.

"He is tough," Obama said.  "In fact, it is a rare man who can be that tough on the field and also have his own line of underwear."

The soccer star, who was to Obama's left, leaned back in laughter.  Beckham's H&M underwear ads gained notoriety after the commercials were shown during the Super Bowl.

After giving a hand for the comedy styling of the Pres, team captain Landon Donovan presented Obama with a soccer ball and a Galaxy jersey with Obama and No. 1 on the back.
