What if Barack Obama had been President on December 8, 1941?

Thank you ladies and gentlemen this has been a great event. Let me send a shout out to the great bandleader and Metal of Honor winner, there he is Count Bassie. Stand up Count. Man I just love your songs. Aboom, boom a de woop, boom, boom a skee bop. You and me are going to have to take the A-train together. You can count on that. Anyway yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in me—the United States of America, for which I am the President, was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces associated with Japan. Hey, there's Billie Holliday, You go girl with that strange fruit shit. I just hope that's not a gay slur or I'll have to have J. Edgar haul you in for a hate crime. Now we're not going to jump to conclusion or have a rush to judgment, because we believe, ah.. that this attack came from an isolated carrier group acting on their own,ah...that just happens to be Japanese. Yes it was a terrible act of violence, where we lost many ships and military personnel, that I am Commander in Chief of, but we can't rush to judgment and start to attack the wonderful peace loving nation of Japan. Which has a long history as a peaceful warrior society
