Apparently, Obama is in a hurry because of all the letters he receives on a daily basis. Oooooooookaaaaaaaaay.
If Americans believe that then they'll believe anything. He should have gone all out and tried to sell us tickets to the 4th floor pool.

You'll have to pry the salt and vinegar potato chips from my cold, dead hands.
