The White House Twitter Gets The Win When President Obama Gets Star Trek Into His Star Wars

During his speech on the Sequester last Friday, President Obama managed to get both sides of the aisle to actually agree on something.

Of course, it may not have been the people he wanted agreement from, but when he said “I’m presenting a fair deal. The fact that they don’t take it means that I should somehow do a ‘Jedi mind-meld’ with these folks and convince them to do what’s right.”, he galvanized Star Wars and Star Trek fans alike into agreement that he’d committed a sci-fi nerd gaffe and sparked all sorts of tweets in response.

The White House, in a stroke of genius (well, I thought it was ::grin::) tweeted out the photo above to both acknowledge the error and turn it into a positive. They even set up the URL whitehouse.gov/JediMindMeld to direct readers to Obama’s plan.

Check out the full tweet after the break.
