For the first eight years of our marriage, [Michelle and I] were paying more in student loans than what we were paying for our mortgage. So we know what this is about.

And we were lucky to land good jobs with a steady income. But we only finished paying off our student loans—check this out, all right, I’m the President of the United States—we only finished paying off our student loans about eight years ago.

When I see the casualness with which some of these folks talk about war, I’m reminded of the costs involved in war. I’m reminded of the decision that I have to make … in terms of sending our young men and women into battle, and the impact that has on their lives, the impact it has on our national security, the impact it has on our economy. … This is not a game. There is nothing casual about it. … Those who are suggesting, or proposing, or beating the drums of war should explain clearly to the American people what they think the costs and benefits would be. I’m not one of those people.

My favorite part about Star Trek so far is that Jeri Ryan’s breasts are responsible for Obama becoming president.

johnwilkestooth:

She was married to the man who was going to beat Obama in Illinois but when they went through their divorce records they found out he was actually a huge creep and tried to force her to suck n fuck other men and women at sex clubs, which is the reason they got divorced.  It all came out and Obama won, then Obama became President of America.
