Did Obama Let It Slip?

During his softball interview with Jay Leno last night Dear Leader had this to say about the odds of people dying from terrorism:

Terrorists depend on the idea that we’re going to be terrorized. And we’re going to live our lives. And the odds of people dying in a terrorist attack obviously are still a lot lower than in a car accident, unfortunately. But there are things that we can do to make sure that we’re keeping the pressure on these networks that would try to injure Americans. And the first thing I think about when I wake up and the last thing I think about when I go to bed is making sure that I’m doing everything I can to keep Americans safe. (Sheeple applause)

So, was this just a non-sequitor from the teleprompter-less droner-in-chief, or did he inadvertently reveal something deeper about the mindset of a tyrant? Surely, it would be most unfortunate for the ever expanding empire if the booboisie could do the math and realize that you’re more likely to win the Powerball–perhaps twice over if you remove US-affiliated terror plots–than die at the hands of some jihadi or otherwise crazed malcontent.

Sidenote. I noticed that Drudge originally linked this quote to this NPR piece. It currently reads: “But he added: ‘We’re going to live our lives,’ and noted that for Americans, the odds of dying in a terrorist attack is lower than dying in a car accident.” Ah, you can always count on the State’s stenographers to set the record straight.
