Washington -  President Barack Obama says he doesn’t know Kim Jung Un personally and has never spoken to him, but says the North Korean leader can still take a different path.

Obama says he does know that Kim Jung Un’s actions seem to pursue a dead end.

Obama spoke at a joint news conference Tuesday with South Korean President Park Geun-hye (goon-hay). He says the U.S. and South Korea agree that they should maintain a strong deterrent capability against North Korean threats. But he says there’s still time for Pyongyang to take a different path on its nuclear weapons program. He says the U.S. and South Korea would welcome a change.

The unpredictable young leader came to power after the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, in December 2011.

If he's so eager to meet him, Mr. Obama can always masquered as a retired basketball player. Just pretend to be Dennis Rodman. The little pipsqueek dictator will never know the difference. In fact Dennis Rodman probably got into North Korea by saying he was Obama!

Hey, I never spoke to guy either. So what? Is there anyone insane enough to believe that talking to that madman will help anything? I would only consider talking to him with a room full of armed guards, and this clown in shackles. No such plans. I'll choose to play some chess or read a good book.

Now this guy, Obama, deserves to be President - he has never spoken to Kim Jung Un. There's lots of other stuff he has not done, such as work - while on his record setting golf trips. I bet he has also not spoken to Charles Manson, and probably has not ever interacted with most of the dudes whose photos are hanging in the Post Office. So what?
