What if Barack Obama had been President on December 8, 1941?
President Obama gives speech on the attack on Pearl Harbor at music awards dinner.
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
