Obama Uses His iPad A Lot, Got it “A Little Bit Early” from Steve Jobs [Video]

By

USA - 2008 Elections - Texas - Senator Obama

When President Barack Obama isn’t flying around the world in Air Force One or wining and dining with the media and Silicon valley elites, he’s on his iPad.

Not only that, but the President apparently has some high profile connections at Apple. And by “high profile,” we mean Steve Jobs.

In a recent interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Obama was quoted as saying that Steve Jobs gave him an iPad “a little bit early.”

Obama in the interview:

“Steve Jobs actually gave it to me, a little bit early. Yeah, it was cool. I got it directly from him.”

Sure beats a trip to Best Buy.

    Amazing…the US president actually sounds in awe of Steve Jobs. Mind you, Apple does have more money than the US government, so I guess it figures!

    right you are

  3. Brooks Hanes says:

    Early meaning probably early in the morning… Or earlier than people who wait in line… Not likely that he got it earlier than anyone knew about it…

    This is exactly why I wont vote for this guy. He feels like he is entitled to receive special treatment. While he is onboard his private jet playing with his iPad a week before everyone else, the rest of America is struggling to pay their bills. Shame on you Mr. Obama!

    How does receiving a gift of an unannounced product that Obama wouldn’t have known about expressing a feeling of entitlement? Was Obama supposed to refuse to accept it for some reason?

    would you say that if your choice for president was currently president?  Doubt it

    You’re an idiot.

    Louis Mark,
    When you have the hardest job in the world, that comes with the most pressure, you damned well receive some special treatment, because a 400,000$ salary is certainly not worth it.  He has a private jet because it would be foolish to charter a plane every time he flies.  Maybe you should get out a bit, you fool

    Steve is such a smart guy. Giving an iPad to the President of the US makes perfect sense. Can you imagine the $$$ value of the free advertisement.

    Hey maybe the US Government should charge Apple for it :-)

    I hear that the current president is as good as gone, so Steve should start working on the likeliest winner from the next batch of presidential candidates.
