The saga of Tim Tebow continues today with a White House petition in which fans of the maligned QB urge the Obama administration to take action immediately.

Specifically, they want the White House to force the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars to sign Tebow, who was cut loose by the New York Jets last month.

Fans of Tebow have started a petition to President Obama, asking that he step in and make a personal call to Jaguars general manager David Caldwell.

However, the petition does not just stop there, and the fans will only be satisfied if Tim Tebow is signed and guaranteed a starting place in the team.

Second term, baby.

Embracing his annual role as Standup Comedian-in-Chief, President Barack Obama certainly delivered the laughs at the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner.

Walking out to DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win," Obama started off his speech joking "second term, baby" and noting, "I've got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one."

The President also didn't hold back when it came to wife Michelle Obama's bangs in Photoshopped pics, or to his own notorious college pot smoking.

Weighing in on the success of the site BuzzFeed, he said "I remember Buzz Feed was just something I did in college around 2 a.m. [pause] It's true."

Like countless other dads, President Barack Obama is concerned about the fact that one day, his little girls may entertain the idea of getting a tattoo.

His plan to thwart Sasha and Malia may take the cake, though.

On Today Wednesday morning, Obama shared with Savannah Guthrie how he and the First Lady plan to respond if either girl decides to go that route ...

“What we’ve said to the girls is, ‘If you guys ever decided you’re going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place,'" he said.

"And we’ll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo. Our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel.”

Not sure about his tax plans ... but that's an awesome idea.

A false tweet from the Associated Press indicated that the White House was the victim of two explosions this morning and that the President was injured.

This is not the case at all. President Barack Obama is fine.

Sen. Wicker thanked law enforcement and said an investigation was underway. The White House's mail is screened at a separate, offsite facility.

President Barack Obama has spoken out for the second time regarding yesterday's Boston Marathon bombings, this time calling them an act of terrorism.

“This was a heinous and cowardly act," Obama said. "Given what we know about what took place, the F.B.I. is investigating it as an act of terrorism."

“Anytime bombs are used to target innocent civilians it is an act of terror.”

In Obama's first statement on the incident last night, he pledged to bring those responsible for justice, but stopped short of using the words terror or terrorism.

President Barack Obama ordered the "full resources" of the federal government to respond to the tragic and "senseless" Boston Marathon bombing today.

Any individuals or groups responsible will "feel the full weight of justice," he said, while the American people will say a prayer for Boston tonight."

President Barack Obama has plenty of taxes in his budget proposal, with his plan to achieve $1.8 trillion in revenue featuring some truly weird ideas.

Not necessarily good, or bad. Just weird in the sense that you'd never expect or hear about them, unlike the public sequestration or fiscal cliff debates.

Far less clear? Some of the other means of increasing revenue included in his 246-page budget. Here's a look at the five weirdest Obama taxes ...
