President Obama sez he can't do "Jedi mind-meld"

I wonder if he can do a Sith neck-pinch.

During his press conference earlier today about the "sequester" mess, President Barack Obama said the following...
"I know that this has been some of the conventional wisdom that's been floating around Washington: That somehow, even though most people agree that I'm being reasonable, that most people agree that I'm presenting a fair deal -- the fact that they don't take it, means that I should somehow do a Jedi mindmeld with these folks and convince them to do what's right," he said. "Well, they're elected. We have a constitutional system of government."
Errrr... Vulcans like Mr. Spock do the mind-meld. In the Star Trek franchise. Jedi don't do mind-melds. And Jedi are only found in Star Wars.

'Course, now that J.J. Abrams is directing the new Star Trek movies and at least Star Wars Episode VII, I suppose anything is possible...

Yoda, Star Wars, Star Trek, mind-meld, Vulcan salute, Jedi
"Live long and prosper, you shall."
