Seriously, this is serious business. Obama said he can't use a jedi mindmeld to make the parties reach agreement. What's he gonna say, "My mind to your mind. These are not the cuts you're looking for. Move along"?
Ya know...he never said he doesn't have the ability to do such a thing.
Not having his long form papers, I'm just going to assume he was born on Polis Mombassa and is an agent of the empire.
