President Obama has invited Steve Jobsí wife Laurene to State of the Union address [TechnoBarf]

President Obama has exercised a tradition of honoring national heroes by inviting the late Steve Jobs’ wife Laurene Powell Jobs, to the State of the Union address on Tuesday, reports Vanguard News. The visionary executive’s widow will join First Lady Michelle Obama in her box in the House of Representatives, according to a release from the White House.

Powell will be joined by Warren Buffet’s secretary Debbi Bosanek as a nod to the billionaire’s complaint about the level of taxes paid by his employees being higher than his own, Mark Kelly, the husband of Gabrielle Giffords, a representative who was wounded in a shooting last year and Mike Krieger, the co-founder of Instagram.

The late Jobs was a proponent of using Apple products in education and Apple recently held an event in New York City to promote inexpensive digital textbooks and a new authoring tool. Education is one of the themes of the President’s address to the nation today. The tradition of honoring those considered heroes was started by Ronald Reagan who invited a man named Lenny Skutnik to attend in 1982 after he rescued a passenger of a crashed airliner.

The address will be streamed live on the President’s website here.

Because Apple would’ve been nothing without Obama.

Who gives a flying “F”? Will she be required to kiss his feet or just kick in several million to his backdoor campaign?

She’s a very nice lady and stood by her husband gracefully to the end.
Don’t be down on her because of the Bamsters.

She’s lost her husband and if this distraction gives her some relief, good.
It won’t matter in the end because Obama will lose in November.

If I was Jobs’ widow, I would tell him to stuff it. Obama and his lapdog media have used her dead husband as a convenient propaganda tool since being dead precludes him from rebuttal to their “traitor” accusation.

Steve Jobs is a creep.
He has his manufacturing done in China- where it is essentially slave labor.
The employees live in dorms next to the factory, and are called up in an instant when Steve Jobs has an inspiration.
I have read about an episode in which they were awakened in the middle of the night- given a biscuit and tea, and worked for 12 hours straight because Stevie wanted a new glass screen on the Ipod.
Obama is rewarding slave masters who do not contribute to American jobs.
Elitist Democrat A holes.

he just finally wants to be able to say "I brought Jobs in!" and not have it be a lie.

No surprise. Apple and Democrats have always been in lockstep with each other.

Oddly enough, I do not see any American willing to do that job. Instead many Americans...some 47% I believe are willing to sit on their backsides while the other's slave away to pay for their wants and needs. Better yet...would you be willing to PAY for an iPad if it were made and sold at American wages?

Yes...somewhere in there is some sarcasm, but also some realism. You see...for the most part..those workers are doing the job Americans won't do.

Modern Day Slavery ... Coming soon to America?

Because of the high demand for Apple products, workers at the Foxconn factory are forced to work like machines and treated worse than farm animals. This is the truth that the media try to cover up. Your iPhones and iPads do not grow on trees ... they're made by slaves. Is this to become a model for the new world order for humans everywhere?

I had no idea Steve Jobs is still married.
