In bold new initiative, Obama will put out foreign-policy suggestion box

2 Sep

WASHINGTON–days after admitting that “we don’t have a strategy” for the Middle East, President Obama regained the initiative today, announcing that he would put out a suggestion box for “any ideas at all” on foreign policy.

“Look, it can’t be that hard, right?” said Obama at a press conference. “We just need to find some people who read the newspaper, or blogs, or something. They’ll have some great ideas.”

Anticipating a high volume of “really super-great ideas,” Obama said that a panel of celebrity judges would narrow down the ideas to three, and then the public could vote.

Experts agreed that the American public would almost certainly find a thoughtful solution to the current set of overlapping foreign-policy crises. “These are the same people who found Caleb Johnson,” said one anonymous pundit. “I’m sure they can sort out Syria.”
