Obama: I'm the President of the United States; I Don't Need to Borrow a Computer

The President of the United States of America has an iPad. He also has his own computer. I mean, he's the freakin' POTUS, so he should darned well better have his own computer, right?

    He seems like a pretty fun guy, too bad he's shackled by the Republican (Regressive Party) held House of Representatives.

    Breaking News the 2nd most powerful man in the world uses a computer.

    Maybe if he would have brought his little war before congress like he was supposed to, time would have been taken to realize that the "rebels" are really Al Qaeda.
