This is sort of kind of a joke, I’m sure, but then again given Obama’s general attitude about his position as the boss of us all, I’m not so sure it is.
While in Chicago wooing fat cat donors with deep pockets, President Obama took a few moments to talk technology, and opine on the state of his personal gadgets in the Oval Office. Short version: He wants better shit because he’s the president.
“The Oval Office, I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff,” he said during a small fundraising event at a Chicago restaurant. “I’m like, c’mon guys, I’m the president of the United States. Where’s the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up? It doesn’t happen.”
Latino education, President Obama was asked if he owns an iPad. Yup! What about a computer? Uhh.
“I’m the president of the United States. You think I’ve got to go borrow somebody’s computer..?Ã‚Â Hey man, can I borrow your computer? How about you? You got one?”
Yep, he sure takes that “president of the United States” thing seriously, doesn’t he? I think he forgets that in being President, he actually works for us. I’m really hoping that the American people remind him of this fact in 2012.
