The ship is the first of its kind in the Navy and is a standing legacy to President Bill Clinton ‘for his foresight in military budget cuts’ and his conduct while holding the (formerly dignified) office of President. 

The ship is constructed nearly entirely from recycled aluminum and is completely solar powered with a top speed of 5 knots.

It boasts an arsenal comprised of one (unarmed) F14 Tomcat or one (unarmed) F18 Hornet aircraft which, although they cannot be launched on the 100 foot flight deck, form a very menacing presence. 

As a standing order there are no firearms allowed on board.

This crew, like the crew aboard the USS Jimmy Carter, is specially trained to avoid conflicts and appease any and all enemies of the United States at all costs  

An onboard Type One DNC Universal Translator can send out messages of apology in any language to anyone who may find America offensive.  The number of apologies are limitless and though some may seem hollow and disingenuous, the Navy advises all apologies will sound very sincere.   

In times of conflict, the USS Clinton has orders to seek refuge in Canada . 

USS  BARACK OBAMA

No words are necessary

  1. Deflation might sound like a good thing. Yet it can be even rougher on the economy than the more familiar phenomenon of inflation, because it’s harder to get rid of. In the past year, record-breaking prices for oil, grains and metals caused

  2. What a great Email. It puts the current history in proper perspective. Bubba is still trying to figure out the proper definition of what “is” is, and the short runway is right on traget. The Keyanese navy boat is a great illustration of The Messiah’s myoptic point of view of our military. He is doing his damnest to disarm our military services to make it easier for his fellow Muslims to just walk right in and takeover the government without firing a shot. It is heading the that direction.
