image for Obama Unable To Recite Pledge Of Allegiance
An Unusual Pledge

Washington DC-- President Obama got into an embarrassing situation at his press conference this afternoon. An unknown reporter from the odd website TheSpoof.com somehow got an invitation to the event. Luckily, someone from the government-controlled media was there to save the day for Obama.

The strange-looking reporter from TheSpoof.com asked the president what every American citizen over the age of five knows: "Sir, could you recite the Pledge of Allegiance for us?"

President Obama looked at his TelePrompter for the answer, but it wasn't there! Whoever types words for the president to read also didn't have a clue. President Obama smiled at the reporter and decided to risk an answer.

"Oh that! Sure, I recite that with the kids twice a day. Let's see how it begins!" he chuckled and began to sweat.

"We the people of this united country. And to the democrats for which it stands. And lead us not into temptation and blessed are we from the mountains to the parties...and...and...and...and I guess that's it." he began to stutter in total terror.

The press room fell into a complete, stunned silence. Reporters were shocked at the extreme ignorance of the president. His entire presidency was crumbling right before everyone's eyes.

Finally, George Stepinapplesalot from ABCD News got up. The 'journalist' stared directly into President Obama's terrified eyes and said:

"Mr. President, that is the first time I ever heard anyone say the Pledge of Allegiance so eloquently and so correctly! Job well done, Sir!"

The rest of the reporters from the government-run media then received the cue to applaud and the president quickly ran out the door.
