WASHINGTON - (PTSD News) - After National Republicans played an April Fools joke on President Obama by praising him on their website for solving global warming with a mandate of the use of low emission unicorns, the president struck back with a prank of his own. The president announced he plans to open large portions of US coastal waters in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico to oil and natural gas drilling.

"The Republicans won't know what hit them," said a grinning Skip Kornblum, a White House aide. "The GOP have been chomping at the bit to drill and here comes Obama stealing their thunder. Oh, what jolly fun to see if they denounce drilling or are forced to really praise Obama."

However, an announcement from Presidential Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said Obama's call for oil and gas drilling was not a joke and occurred on April 1st by coincidence. "The Republicans have only three ideas for every problem. Obama has already lowered taxes on the middle class, and will co-opt their second idea, drilling for oil. This will drive the GOP to use their last idea, anger. However, Obama knows he can top them there too as there is nothing more formidable than an angry black man."

"If Obama really wanted to play an April Fools joke on the Republicans," said Representative Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), "he should have announced he was launching a full scale investigation of the Bush administration for war crimes and would appoint a commission with guts enough to find out what was really behind the 9/11 attacks.
