Obama Disappointed With Lack of 'Cool' Phone in Oval Office

FOX News

Thursday night Obama whined to donors about wanting more buttons on the Oval Office phone.

The president, in an unscripted moment with donors in Chicago, was talking about the need to innovate in technology.

“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.”

The president made his off-the-cuff remarks with donors as he took questions and after reporters had been ushered out of the event. But the question and answer session was piped back to Washington by mistake and into the press briefing area where a few reporters were still working late.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Reminded of obama and his comment in the past about a pay grade. To be president is soooooo ABOVE obama's
(pay grade) class, his is all low class.

Obama's problem is that he followed George W. Bush who saw the Presidency as a job. Reliable dependable usable technology all took the front seat in Mr./Bush's office to flash. Obama wants flash and there was none left after eight years of all cattle and no hat.
(Texas saying "That boy is all hat and no cattle!")

Still I'll get Obama a 65"screen with camera that will rise up out of a cabinet when he pushes a remote control button and he can take it home with him when he levees office, if he leaves office by the 4th of July this year. I am currently unemployed under medical treatment but his taste is for fairly cheap movie flash.

Rush is right when he calls Obama the man-child president.
