Beam me up, Yoda: Obama flubs 'Star Trek' term By DARLENE SUPERVILLE
WASHINGTON (AP) He's not a dictator and won't entertain the idea of a "Jedi mind-meld" with opponents. There's no "secret formula or special sauce" he can slip foes to make them see things his way. And not to worry, he says, the situation may look dire but won't be an "apocalypse." So who was the guy in a suit and tie who showed up Friday in the White House briefing room, mixing metaphors and references to "Star Wars" and "Star Trek"? "I am not a dictator. I'm the president," Barack Obama declared as he rejected the idea of using Secret Service agents to keep lawmakers from leaving until everyone agreed on a budget. He answered reporters' questions shortly after an inconclusive, 52-minute meeting with the Democratic and Republican leaders of the House and Senate. "So ultimately, if (Senate Minority leader) Mitch McConnell or (House Speaker) John Boehner say, 'We need to go to catch a plane,' I can't have Secret Service block the doorway. Right?" Even if he did bar his office the oval one Obama said he wouldn't do a "Jedi mind-meld" with Congress' top two Republicans to persuade them "to do what's right."

If you have to tell people you’re not a dictator...
What do you expect from a guy who can’t order a burger without his prompter?
And BTW, where was TOTUS? Sequestered?
If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck it’s a dictator.
What an orator; he managed to insult TWO camps of science fiction fans in one phrase.
With a wife that appears to be a Wookiee-Klingon hybrid, I’d say the guy is understandably confused.
Here it is
Oh man, he’s so cool.
The Anointed One suffers from a deficiency in his miticlorian count.
Obama’s been trying to do a mind-meld with a slowly growing
and slowly retreating “majority” for 49 months now.
He sees it as his mandate.
He’s just not quite smart enough to pull it off.
Our President is a Vulcan Idiot.
I felt a great disturbance in the Federation, I mean Force.
Is it really necessary to insult idiots?
I dont know what the Dictator is complaining about,he got his Sequester,you know the Club to bash the republicans with for the Next 2 years,every time we get a Statistic,the GDP,unemployment,take home pays,the Homeless,guess what caused it,the sequester the Republicans caused,kick them out in the Next election so I can finish the Destruction Of the United States of America.
Dont mention that the Republicans offered him the power to do what ever the Hell he wanted without having to deal with the evil republicans,he could solve the problem by himself and save Millions of Americans from this Disaster HE SAID is coming,ButTHe A-hole says he will veto that offer if it got to his desk! What a Psycho! We better Humor this Basket Case or we will all be Fried
The gracious way to do this would be for the President and leaders of Congress to sit down together and mutually decide what to cut. But this is politics.
Oh, that's right, Barry Soetero was in Indonesia during that series.
As someone said before, the destroyer will telegraph what is on his mind every time. He will tell you exactly what he is going to do.
He didn’t grow up here. What cultural references he got came later in life. Just like his “walk with Christianity”.
Phony as a three dollah bill.
Did you mean the Fed? Bernanke is bothered.
Bingo! What 50 year old AMERICAN doesn’t know that it’s “beam me up Scottie?!”
He is only trying to undo the mind meld applied by Bush. But he will need another several terms because it is hard work.
A Vulcan would say that it racist!
Yoda never met a Vulcan, they were two imaginations apart.
ROFLAO! That is funny. You couldn’t work in a Battle Star Galactica reference?
That’s exactly what it is, EXACTLY. This is exactly what you get from foreigners. They get mixed up with different things that come out of the US. I use to drive a taxi about 5 years ago in New York city when I was unemployed, and all day long I would be driving tourists from just about every country on earth, and allll day long it was one mix up after another, combining one thing with another. “I like the Steve Allen who made Annie Hall” or “John Wayne in the Rambo” huh? what? or “Times square in Harlem” Uh say what? This freakin’ putz just gave himself away AGAIN!
We win every time he has to answer questions, which is why he never does.
Those who voted for him are useless idiots.
You are NOT allowed to photoshop this! https://twitter.com/whitehouse/status/307584535976112128#
Famous veterinarian quote....
What’s scary is not only that a reporter make that statement but that most of the reporters in the room agreed with her. And half of the idiots who voted in the last election want him to be a dictator. It’s just that some of them don’t really know what a dictator is. Hey, if Sean Pean can hang out with dictators they can’t be all that bad.
Merry New Year!
Obama is a poser in every sense of the word, starting with his birth certificate.
read the entire article... or watch the vid clip... too funny...
How can he mind-meld without a brain?
He is Not an American. He is not even a North American. It’s obvious.
Scottyoda: Engineering to Capt. Kirk!
Kirk: Kirk here.
Scottyoda: Captain, slow down you must! Any more she kenna take, or blow she will!
Kirk: Can’t you try to give me more power?
Scottyoda: Do or do not, Captain, there is no try.
“Even though most people believe I’m being reasonable...”
Obama never stops lying. How did he go from being an IL State Senate backbencher to President of the United States in 8 short years?
He’s a Cook County Dem. I cannot believe it.
Yah, but at least he didn’t say something really stupid, like there are 57 States.
I did find that the the scariest part of the video. Scarier than Obama's total lack of basic geek cultural references.
The reporter starts with "can't you just make them..." The ignorance of that question floors me. This is a reporter who you know would cheer if Obama announced he was assuming dictatorial power "for the good of the country" (and who knows, he may well do so).
Fascinating, this is.
Wow so that is Michelle new hairdo everyone is talking about. That helmet hair.
