Obama Promises to Build (and Protect Us From) Robots

He already has uncanny reflexes, a wicked southpaw jumpshot, and can leap tall buildings in a single bound. But now, in a bold move to live up to his Nobel Peace Prize, President Obama has promised us all that he will protect us from future robot invasions.

Speaking before an audience as part of his "Educate to Innovate" campaign, an initiative aimed at promoting science and math education in U.S. classrooms, Obama uttered the following words of inspiration: "As President, I believe that robotics can inspire young people to pursue science and engineering. And I also want to keep an eye on those robots in case they try anything." Not only is the President willing to encourage the youth of America to start building robots, he's even guaranteeing to annihilate the robots once they malfunction and start killing everyone!

Okay, so recap: Robot attack protection? Check. Universal health care coverage? Uh. [From: Gizmodo]
