          1.  As cunning as a fox who graduated from the school of cunning? I’m afraid it’s too late for that

          1. Fighting the Monster From The Id!

            You can’t scare me with your big words.

            Sadly, no one will get this extremely obscure reference.

  1. How did no one see the downside of having the “threat” of the sequester being a Teapartier’s wet dream?

    I guess Obama really thought the cuts on the Pentagon would be the Republican’s sticking point, but the moment Obama started panicking and talking about how terrible the Pentagon cuts were going to be, it was obvious that he had realized that the Republicans were perfectly happy to stomach those cuts to further their “starve the beast” idea.

    Worst negotiation strategy ever.

    1.  Yeah, really.  ‘Let’s propose a solution where you can get everything you really want and will be able to blame any possible downsides on me!’

      I really see Obama as more of a Spock, perplexed by Tea Party emotions.

      1.  Especially since almost everything that has been recently proposed has been 99% illogical.

  2. Am I the only one that is bothered that Obama is wearing the rank insignia of a commander and not a captain?

    1. If only Bolling had used Kirk’s green shirt with the weird built-in wrap-around belt thing so we could catch a glimpse of Obama’s pecs through the collar.

  3. Pleased to see the Romulan uniform is correctly drawn as the original series version and not some later film or tv update.

    But what’s this?  Bolling has the “captain” wearing a lower officer’s blue sash instead of a captain’s red sash, as clearly seen in “Balance of Terror” and “The Enterprise Incident”!  For shame, sir, for shame!

    1. I love how Obama insulted the Romulan commander by calling him an “Ulan”, the lowest Romulan rank.

  4. Obama gets to feign a sad while compromising his way into the neoliberal austerity that both Republicans and Democrats (and their wealthy leash holders) have wanted all along. How many more times does he have to put up the wimpiest fight imaginable and then compromise down to what Republicans wanted all along until “Changey” liberals realize that this is what many Democrats want too….

    1. If any democrat is like Spock, it’s Obama. Have Bill Clinton as Kirk. Paint a certain former intern green. 

      1. FTW! Clinton had Kirk’s hair and would sleep with anything with a pulse.

        I have an old Spy magazine superhero comic book insert.  Clinton wore an Evil Knievel jump suit with sax and cape, Hillary was the  asskicking babe in a red body stocking, Barbara Bush had a rolling pin and a bad attiude (“The Hearthkeeper”) and Al Gore was an anthropomorphic tree (“The Wooden Wonder”)

    2.  …and Obama could be the more logical, less emotional Spock; and the American people could the Captain. But, the planet is America, so that wouldn’t exactly work I guess.

  5. Those Republicans will stop at nothing to take Obama down. It’s like he’s Sarah Connor and the GOP is Robocop.

  6. @ Antinous

    Sadly, no one will get this extremely obscure reference.

    Danger, Will Robinson, danger!

    No One

  7. Elementary, my dear Antinous.  This refers to Forbidden Planet’s unseen and overwhelming monster from the Dr.’s conscient-conshun-continenc–uh brain.
