My Republican friends have been trying to convince me for years that President Obama is a disaster for the nation. He offends them daily with his words and actions. I have finally seen a clear example of how offensive this president might be. His comment about the “Jedi mind meld” [“President spaces out with ‘Jedi mind meld’ remark,” news article, March 2] showed that he is clearly not one of us — “us” being the vast army of geeks across the nation that would never confuse a Vulcan with a Jedi. 

Shame, Mr. Obama! If a heartfelt apology is not provided, I am confident geeks will rise up, and you will feel our wrath.
