Washington DC - "Doc, I have a dream," President Obama told his personal analyst yesterday morning, "I have this dream I'm gonna rob another - uh - rob a bank."
The recurring nocturnal visions started shortly after Thanksgiving and seem to be fixated around a famous Big Oil bank.
Sources close to White House Professor of Psychoanalysis Dr Einstein Flintstone are hinting strongly that the President's obsession lies with FirstAmerica Fracking Bank of New York.
Last week the Wall Street giant published its annual report showing Big Oil has more than one trillion US dollars on deposit.
Or enough to bankroll the country's entire national payroll in the event of any, ahem, sudden White House coup.
Accumulated during the recent six year bull run the nest egg is slowly festering Barack Obama's 'conscience' according to Dr Flintstone's recent prognosis.
"Plunging global crude prices have done little to wipe the smile off Big Oil's face," the shrink commented.
"Obama's probably cooking up some sort of grand Presidential shakedown plan."
