#StarWarsFiscalCliff: ‘These are not the budget cuts you’re looking for’

    I have something here for you. Your father wanted you to have this when you were old enough, but your uncle wouldn’t allow it. He feared you might follow old Obama-Wan on some damn fool idealistic crusade like your father did. #StarWarsFiscalCliff
