Yesterday the President decided he must step down, following a long consultation with himself at the mirror in a white house bathroom.
He was willing, he said to news services, to swap positions with Joe Biden and let him try the presidency while taking second position as vice-president.
However, this exchange would be unprecedented versus firing himself, as did Richard Nixon some time back.
As to why, he said incompetence in general, inconsistency, contradiction, immaturity, and too much time on the golf course about summed it up.
But he felt confident in appointing his wife, Michelle Obama, to the position of Secretary of Defense.
"Let me tell you we've had some battles in the kitchen," he said at one point, smiling.
Ms. Obama has immediately responded that she will personally head on down to Ferguson, to look things over there.
The Navy will return to nine month deployments and be on station circling the globe continually while monitoring trouble spots.
Ten thousand marines will be immediately dispatched to the Green Zone in Baghdad as a "hands off" message to anyone concerned.
As to Russia she will meet with Mr. Putin and settle him down.
She will arrive out of the Black Sea at Sebastopol off an enlarged battle group with three aircraft carriers and assorted aircraft.
She further explained she was completely ready for this meeting, adding that judo, arm wrestling, or whatever Mr. Putin preferred she was ready and more than able.
Mr. Obama meanwhile was heading out to the links to take his mind off recent developments.
