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.
