Romney wouldn't have made this kind of mistake

Obama: "The conventional wisdom that's been floating around Washington [is that] the fact that [the Republicans] don't take [my offered deal], means that I should somehow do a Jedi mindmeld with these folks and convince them to do what's right."

I'm pretty sure he was going for 'Jedi mind trick' rather than 'Vulcan mind meld'. But if so, he should know that Congressional Republicans, like Toydarians, care only about money so Jedi mind tricks wouldn't work on them anyway.

Should have voted for Alan Keyes in '08 for just this reason.

Hey, we have no idea where they are taking this thing with episode VII. Maybe Obama just has inside information.

Jedi have mind melds, but it's not an easy feat. I think Obama's just saying he's moved from Knight to Master.

Yeah, but at least he's owning it.

Cute. Whoever is doing their twitter account has a nice sense of humor.

Not just the Twitter account. That address redirects to his page on his sequester suggestions. This was a very fast, very smart response to what would ordinarily be a media embarrassment.

Heh, this was a funny post about it: Sorry, nerds, but Obama was right about the jedi meld (and metaphysics)

"spoke"? I hope that's an auto-correct error. [Big Grin]
