Obama regrets promising new Game of Thrones book

PRESIDENT Obama made a number of rash, personalised promises to voters, it has emerged.

Never mind China, what about the fictional land of Westeros?

Camera phone footage shows Ohio voter Tom Logan telling Obama that what he wants most is a new book in the popular Game of Thrones fantasy saga.

The president replies: “That’s not a problem. It’ll be a good one too, loads of dragons.

“Just put your cross in the box and leave it to Obama.”

The footage also shows Obama promising 38-year-old Mary Fisher that he will ‘stop her brother Phil being such a piece of shit’ and to get welder Roy Hobbs a nice, clean girlfriend.

Tom Logan said: “In his victory speech there was all the stuff about the economy and the environment, but Game of Thrones, or to give it its proper name A Song of Ice and Fire, wasn’t even mentioned.

“Where are his priorities now?”

A White House source said: “The president has emailed author George R R Martin twice, using block capitals in the subject heading, but George must be on holiday or something.

“Now this has re-emerged, Obama’s had to start writing the book himself. Right now it’s the last thing he needs, he’s missing loads of meetings about Iran because he’s stuck on a giant wolf battle.”
