President: "I announced to people when I landed that I come in peace"

A lighthearted President Barack Obama joked that although he had landed in Roswell he could not disclose if extra-terrestrials had done the same in a flying saucer in 1947.

"I announced to people when I landed that I come in peace,"
said the US leader, mocking an expression attributed to alien species in numerous works of fiction, including the animated blockbuster comedy "Toy Story."

"Let me tell you, there are nine- and 10-year-old boys... when I meet them they ask me, have you been to Roswell, and is it true what they say?" Obama said.

"And I tell them, If I told you I'd have to kill you. And you know, their eyes get all big,"
the president added in Maljamar, a town 80 kilometers (50 miles) away from Roswell, where he was trumpeting his energy policy.

"We're gonna keep our secrets here!" he concluded.

3. Hear that crinkling sound?

It's that of 10,000 conspiracy theorists donning their tinfoil hats, probably expecting that the President is meeting with some alien ambassador in preparation for the final subjugation of the human race.

Our alien overlords must have more sense than most of our politicians.

17. Wow, the POTUS can joke around

and be normal!!! How REFRESHING! Unlike the Great Failure we had in office before President Obama. GWB could barely create a complex sentence and whatever he said was always failure-creepy.

26. Bush did joke

about how nobody could find those gosh-durn WMDs in Iraq. He even had a video made for the White House correspondents' dinner of him looking under the oval office furniture. "Heh heh heh, I sent thousands of Americans to die, and caused the deaths of untold tens of thousands of Iraqis, and all for some bogus claim about the threat to 'Merica, But look--I'm turning it into a big joke! Aren't I sumpthin'? Heh heh heh..."

I know, I know...I didn't laugh either.

27. Forgot about that, like I said 'creepy'.

Or like when he said he wanted to be America's first dictator (in a round a bout way)...wasn't very funny. I think one thing that pisses the GOP off more than anything else, is the way the POTUS can relate to the American people in a way they can never do. It would require them to use emotions that are alien to their makeup.

24. I highly doubt Obama knows anything about what happened in 1947

 

Even a President doesn't have access to everything. The last President to know was probably Nixon, or possibly Poppy Bush. One thing's for sure though, Truman knew.
