White House Responds to Death Star Petition, "Does Not Support Blowing Up Planets"

by at . Comments

The Obama Administration issued a response to an online petition asking the White House to commission an intergalactic Death Star a la Star Wars.

Sadly, it rejected the request.

  • Obama Death Star!
  • P O T U S

Guess The Force was not strong enough with this petition.

Claiming it would cost an estimated $850,000,000,000,000,000 and that "the administration does not support blowing up planets," Obama nixed the idea.

The White House was forced to offer an official response, since the petition garnered the requisite 25,000 signatures on the WeThePeople petitioning system.

As we've discussed in the past, this online petitioning process is either one of Team Obama's greatest achievements or an idea they will forever regret.

All depends on your point of view, right?

Other memorable efforts we've seen in the past two or three months alone:

The Death Star petition may take the cake, despite that stiff competition.

After the administration’s delayed response to the petition was criticized online, the good folks in the executive branch finally replied, titling their answer:

“This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For.”

“The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon,” the WH Chief of Science wrote

In addition to a reasonable aversion for mass genocide, officials worried that the system has a well-known vulnerability - as proven in Star Wars: Episodes IV and VI.

“Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?” the WH asked.

Hard to refute that. For the impressively long and unabridged response to this attempt at direct democracy, follow the link for the full White House reply.

So typical of this self-appointed dictator residing in the White House. First he wants to take away our guns, now he wants to deny us our Death Stars! After all, what's more American than blowing stuff up?
