Rumor: President Barack Also Agent Double Obama
Russian spies are generally portrayed as either superhuman killing machines or sexy-but-deadly female operatives. And while they’re capable enough to breach low levels of security, they don’t typically become President of the United States.
But that’s exactly what a Karl Rove-linked group is claiming. They've even cut together an Austin Powers/James Bond parody video. This finally proves that, while the Republicans might be out of touch with the American people, they aren’t out of touch with pop culture.
Of course, the evidence to back up their suggestion is virtually nil. The controversy seems to have begun when Obama was overheard telling Russian president Dimitri Medvedev that "this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space." Obama was apparently referring to incoming Russian president Vladimir Putin.
“This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility," Obama continued in a quiet voice, unaware that his mic was live and broadcast over media outlets. Granted, Obama could be referring to a lot of things, including setting aside more bro time with Putin to do this. But the consensus is that something more fishy was involved.
The two diplomats were discussing the America's involvement in building a NATO missile defense plan, to which Russian diplomats have responded with aggression. Medvedev has threatened to aim missiles at the U.S.-led NATO missile shield. Critics of Obama are worried that the duplicitous exchange could mean Obama’s involvement in weakening our national security. And perhaps they’re right — Obama does seem suave and cool enough to be a secret agent.
The White House has responded that it was just “politics as usual” since both countries have elections on the mind and have to act carefully. Well played, Double O’Bama.
