Hmm. No wonder the White House won't build a Death Star for us.

At a press conference today, Barack Obama proved that while he may be our coolest-ever President, even he needs to bone up on his pop cultural references.

Speaking to the press about sequestration and forging a bipartisan budget reform agreement, Obama said he can’t perform a “Jedi mind meld” on Congress.

Maybe because there is no such thing as a Jedi mind meld.

His point: much as he would like to simply MAKE Republican leaders agree to his spending cuts, he is "not a dictator" and you need two sides to compromise.

What Obama probably meant was to reference either the “Jedi Mind Trick” from Star Wars ... or the “Vulcan Mind Meld” from Star Trek often used by Spock.

Points for trying, B. A for effort.
