Will Obama Delay The Lost Premiere? (UPDATE)

From the beach to the tail section to the lamppost everyone is emailing/tweeting/carrier pigeoning me about how the President could potentially delay the final season of "Lost" by a week.
According to reports, the White House is mulling over two dates for the president's State of the Union address: Tuesday, Jan. 26 or Tuesday, Feb. 2.
Man, I was really thinking Obama was going to the be the first geek in chief. First he reveals he sees Star Trek (which is made by the Lost folks) and then over Christmas break he goes to HAWAI (obviously he had some meetings with Richard Alpert), and then he goes to see Avatar. I mean all he has to do is make Comic Con a national holiday and he'd be the first Jedi President of the United States.

But something has gone wrong. Obama used to be a constant source of hope, now He's thinking about derailing the LOST premiere, the most anticipated season premiere in the history of time/universe/space (cause it's all relative). What is he thinking? Has he become corrupted by the evil spirit of the Island? Is he working for Locke? Widmore? Frogurt? I need answers! Apparently I'll have to wait to find out what the fate holds for the premiere (which as a Lost fan I'm used to ).

***UPDATE: The White House has just issued this statement
We don't foresee a scenario in which millions of people that hope to finally get some conclusion in ‘Lost’ are preempted by the president.”
Maybe that aforementioned meeting with Richard Alpert really paid off.
