(We now join the State of the Union already in progress . . .)
. . . And to the sixteen-year-old boy from Denver, whose life was snuffed out just two weeks after his father from New Mexico was killed in the very same way, I say . . .
Great! More of that!
For the state of MY union is strong! And getting stronger!
Thanks to the efforts of my administration, we are a new nation, a nation whose government can kill its citizens at will.
Now, I know some will say, "What about the law?" "What about our Constitution?"
To those doubters, those unwilling to change, I say this: If I do it, it's legal!
And if other high-level members of my administration do it, that's also legal.
See, this is what Democracy is all about-- people working together no matter where their office is located in the White House.
And to those unwilling to change, I say this:
This is not "illegal" assassination, this is legal assassination-like "targeted killing," which is a change from illegal assassination.
These killings can only be carried out if there is an "imminent" threat.
(*Imminent does not mean imminent in the sense of the word imminent.)
The state of my union, is streamlined to eliminate the due process of the past.
There's still due process, it's whatever I do!
And to those who would question giving the White House the power to kill without judges, juries or even charges, I say this:
C'mon, it's me! I'm hope, change, puppy dogs and flowers, I'm not George Bush!
Plus-- whether it's killing Americans or killing just plain ol' foreigners-- mine is the most transparent administration ever.
