The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn't on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:
- The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We're working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
- The Administration does not support blowing up planets. [*]
- Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?
Controversionally, the entire response rather suggests that not only do White House staffers have a sense of humour but, crucially, the Administration lets them demonstrate it in public.
Wouldn't it be nice if all politicians and companies issued such informative and yet fundamentally light-hearted pronouncements...?
* Only a cynic would opine at this point that, whilst planets might be beyond the ambitions of the US government, other countries are not.
Were someone to do that, of course, they would also need to concede that our own Parliamentarians are also not averse to bombing the shit out of foreigners.
