President Obama would like to know what in tarnation these young whippersnappers are doing with these doomaflotchies, Agence France-Presse reports:
"You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank all that high on the truth meter," Obama said at Hampton University, Virginia.
"With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations--none of which I know how to work--information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation," Obama said. He bemoaned the fact that "some of the craziest claims can quickly claim traction," in the clamor of certain blogs and talk radio outlets. "All of this is not only putting new pressures on you, it is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy."
In Barack Obama's day, they didn't have these newfangled "Internet" contraptions. You wanted to communicate, you went to the telegraph office. And they didn't have any of this fancy "global warming" in those days either. You'd walk 10 miles through the snow to get there, and it was uphill both ways!
In his day, if you wanted information, you didn't need some "computer" gizmo. You read the paintings on the cave walls. "Hunter, hunter, dinosaur, woolly mammoth, woolly mammoth."
That was democracy, we tell ya! And what in the Sam Hill is an "Xbox"? They didn't need "video" games when Barack was a lad. His favorite game was Stick. A bunch of kids would find a stick, and they'd play with it for hours! Yes sir, back then, they knew how to have fun.

I shouldn’t be but I am always amazed 0dumbo can’t seem to keep his lies straight
He , his handlers and the MSM trumpeted his 21st century tech savy
including 0dumbo discussing his IPod play list during the campaign and again last year
He is such a disgusting LIAR, why won’t MSM call him on it?
President For Life Barrak Hussein Odumbo does not hate the internet, the blessed messiah hates anyone or anything that contradicts his holy edicts.
WSJ misquoted. He said, "...rather than a means of ePancipation." lol
Say what you really mean to say Obama you chicken. You mean not everyone on the Internet is kissing your butt.
Obama HATES the Internet because it contains damning information of his activities and his verbal faux pas. I have noticed whenever he or one of his minions accidentally speaks the truth that the info is scrubbed within a day. Remember Pelosi telling Stephanopolis âAmericans over 55 use entirely too much of our Health Care resourcesâ? Not on the Internet anymore. How about Obama reciting the Irish Prime Minister’s speech on the teleprompter instead of his own? Impossible to find now. Zero’s Internet Wizards do a great job covering his tracks. He is definitely POâd that he needs those whiz kids.
oh please please tell me that is a real photo
Accuse your enemy of what you are doing. Obama only needs to go to the Whitehouse Press room and listen to Gibbels spew forth and watch the truth meter crank hard over to the BS side!
Of course. It’s the last free speech we have and he’s itching to control it
just like everything else.
We’ll have to get another way to get messages and truths out there.
Never give up!
The headline should read: Obama too stupid to operate iPod.
The Internet, smart phones, iPads, Twitter, blogs, etc are all obviously enemies of the democrat party.
The free flow of information bypasses the quasi-totaliatarian democrat party media. Except of course that damn Fox and a few talk shows.
O hates free speech, free thought

Since that historical moment the left has hated the Internet, oh, except when they can raise millions through it fro campagnes.
Ironic that a politically correct affirmative action (i.e., racially profiled) new media candidate put into office by every manner of disinformation and lack of information ever foisted on a people by technology and the media apparatus would now be complaining about the very thing that got him elected.
I guess that’s because every day someone else head gets pulled out of Obama’s ass (by information and technology) and they are starting to see what vacuous empty suit liar he really is.
You got that right.
“they are starting to see what vacuous empty suit liar he really is.”
You might have something there. They can’t control the message. We’re close. Real close.
They are infiltrating our site. I have heard from a couple. Similar to seminar callers on Rush...Pathetic.
