The President released this statement while traveling to the Midwest during one of his Campaign stops.
The President said, "I'd like to put and end to the rumor that we have a plan to transform our country in my second term into The United Shariah Socialist Republic of Allah'bama as some in the Tea Party are now claiming. This is simply untrue and a partisan attempt to create a division among Americans as well as to create an atmosphere of distrust and division."
"We are a democratically elected constitutional republic and there is absolutely no validity to the rumors that the State Department is negotiating with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the sale of Alabama in exchange for a number one favored nation trading status with the Saudi Kingdom to secure an extremely lucrative oil deal."
"It is equally false that we also have plans to withdraw all U.S forces from the state and we have no plan to disband the Alabama Nation Guard. These are vile rumors created by the GOP leadership and the Romney/Ryan Campaign to create an atmosphere of xenophobia and islamophobia as well as an attempt to ferment unrest in our great nation. We are dedicated to forge forward for all Americans and to seek solutions above partisan agendas."
The State Department and the Pentagon deny rumors that U.S. troops are exiting the State of Alabama and that caravans of official Saudi vehicles are entering the State. There's also a huge spike in advertisements in Alabama claiming that "Burkas are the New Sexy" and to get them while they last. This has many in Alabama understandable on edge to the point where Support for President Obama's campaign has gone from 25% to 75% just after this statement was released.
A reliable White House source has revealed that the President was witnessed saying with a wink to V.P. Joe Biden, "let them sweat a little, Joe."
