Default Obama says no to Death Star petition

Well I guess this response was to expected from the peace at any price crowd occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

The Obama administration will not be building a Death Star.

Responding to a petition on the White House Web site, science and technology adviser Paul Shawcross tells disappointed “Star Wars” fans, “This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For.”

Official White House Response to Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016

This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For


The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn't on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We're working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.

The Administration does not support blowing up planets.

Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?
