During a speech today, President Barack Obama announced that the United States is building a suit of Iron Man armor. "Basically I'm here to announce that we're building Iron Man," Obama said. "I'm going to blast off in a second." "Not really. Maybe. It's classified," he continued, drawing laughs. Obviously, the President was joking. He was actually delivering a speech to announce two new manufacturing hubs in Chicago and Detroit. The quote made it onto Twitter and a certain Tony Stark responded, reminding the President that they had agreed to keep their Iron Man discussions confidential. So what do you think? Is a suit of armor secretly being built for the President so that he can take matters of state into his own hands? Wouldn't be the craziest theory I've ever heard.
