President Barack Obama’s administration has done some tremendously geeky things to help identify with the general populace, such as giving a very thoughtful response to a White House petition to build the Death Star.
However, at a press conference today, Obama may have proved that, while he can hire a bunch of Star Wars fanboys to help run the country, he himself is not one.
Speaking to the press about forging a bipartisan agreement on budget reform, Obama told reporters that he can’t perform a “Jedi mind meld” with Republican leaders to make them agree to his spending cuts.
Also, someone created a parody account called ObamaVulcanJedi. (I love the Internet.)
Well at least the president seems to have a sense of humor about the whole situation. (See The White House’s tweet below.)
