Borg Make Obama Presidency Possible In Bid To Take Over Alpha Quadrant

Kid Various fears Obama. That much is known. But what's been pointed out in this piece is that if 7 of 9 had just kept her big Borg yap shut - we may not even have been put in this situation!

Yet despite running away with the primary, Obama still had a formidable challenge in Republican Jack Ryan. Ryan was an impressive candidate - attractive and wealthy, with law and business degrees from Harvard. After making a fortune at Goldman Sachs, Ryan left to teach in an inner city school.

Yet Ryan had a problem - during the campaign, he was going through a messy divorce from actress Jeri Ryan, of “Star Trek: Voyager” fame. Details of Jeri Ryan’s testimony contained lurid details about Ryan forcing his wife to go to sex clubs in Paris. These details were toxic to Jack Ryan’s campaign, and he saw his poll numbers plummet - eventually, Republican leaders pressed Ryan to quit the race, fearing he was toxic to the statewide ticket.

Maybe it's a plot by the Collective to change the time-line to alter the correlation of forces in the 24th century in their favor! You know how good the Borg are with time travel.

And you people thought we couldn't wedge a STAR TREK reference into this topic...

Jeri Ryan and Jack Ryan divorced in 1999, long before Obama's campaign. The Ryans sealed their divorce records to protect their young son and those divorce records were unsealed by court order because of a lawsuit by a reporter who sensed something juicy there. Both Jack and Jeri fought the court order but failed. Please get your facts straight before you place blame.

Jeri Ryan had every right and reason to divorce Jack Ryan and did so within the boundaries of law. She should not be held accountable for the actions of a reporter who unsealed private divorce records against her wishes.
