Obama to send drones after teen band
May 3, 2010
What's common between the feared Tehrik-i-Taliban commander Hakimullah Mehsud and American pop boy band Jonas Brothers? Give up? Answer: They're both likely to be scanning the skies for killer drones.
Yes, you heard it right.
Speaking at the White House Correspondents Association annual gala dinner on Saturday night, the Commander-in-Chief of the world's most powerful military force said to the teen heartthrob band, “Sasha and Malia are huge fans. But, boys, don't get any ideas. I have two words for you — predator drones. You will never see it coming. You think I'm joking.”
Though Paul, Joseph and Nicholas may have slept lightly over the weekend, the attending White House media, staffers, and a sprinkling of A-list celebrities like Alec Baldwin were guffawing themselves well nigh off their chairs at the wit and wisdom of the 44th President.
And he spared no one, not even himself: “It's been quite a year since I've spoken here last— lots of ups, lots of downs — except for my approval ratings, which have just gone down. But that's politics. It doesn't bother me. Beside I happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth”.
