Predator drones

“Jonas Brothers are here, they’re out there somewhere. Sasha and Malia are huge fans, but boys, don’t get any ideas. Two words for you: predator drones. You will never see it coming. You think I’m joking?”
Pres. Obama at WH correspondents dinner

The POTUS is under attack for this joke.
It seems our predator drones have killed civilians.
Actually, Obama could have used a variance of this joke re many in the audience Sat. evening: Rupert Murdoch;the cable Fox talkingheads;Larry King ad.nauseum.

It’s easy for any POTUS to take a power trip with his(her) military toys.
There is the gem of a story about LBJ. He was leaving the WH, to board the execuitve helicopter. A Marine told him that heli. was not his. LBJ told him: “Son, they are all my helicopters.”
