WASHINGTON (AP) Barack Obama's cherished Blackberry slipped through his fingers Friday but it was only a butterfingers moment.
Obama, who has been reluctant to relinquish the device when he becomes president, dropped his Blackberry and its hard plastic case onto an airport tarmac as he emerged from his fortified vehicle.
A Secret Service agent hustled to pick it up.

This is news? Way to go, AP.
I was thinking the same.
WOW! ...and then what happened?
that is funny.
this is how pathetic the media have become with obama the phony.
Reporting stories of their messiah dropping his phone.
OMG quick attention the world the messiah has dropped his phone but the secret service ran in and saved the day.
We can all breath a sigh of relief
8:19 PM, the Blackberry becomes self-aware.
His Majesty just stood there and let someone else pick it up? Unbelievable.
It’s not as if he was about to pick up his own crackberry.
Looks like the secret service will be treated with the same respect they got from the bubbas.
Yep -- and not a word about this flying around half the country to catch a train to go north and then south. FOX is the worst of the lot today.
Maybe I am old fashion and JMO but when I see anybody constantly on their blackberry/cell txt ect it really turns me off.
I suppose because I prefer to look/observe the world around me.
It (again JMO) makes the user appear to be a self absorbed individual.
When in public it is nice to give or recieve a smile and eye contact from/to people.
We all have low days and that simple smile can really make for a spiritual uplift whatever we are sufferring through at the moment.
I have not watched much of Fox or any news since the election, it is just plain annoying to watch them.
I think americans confused the office of President with American Idol. Its a shame,it really is.
P.S. I don't know if I could keep this up for 8 years like the Left did with GWB.
I am in agreement with you 100%
the population today have forgot how to have a conversation, how to say thank you, how to say please and hello.
When I lived up north for a bit I had to get the subway/T underground train etc and I swear seeing these people on their phones all the time just amazed me.
I would see funny things like a guy and a gal walking together while both texting.
It’s just plain silly .
A guy next door to me moved in recently, he walks his dog with his 12 year old and every time the father is just on his phone.
I mean what is that about, your child is there walking with you and you would rather be on the phone doing what ever.
Even his child has said he is on the phone all the time so he can’t talk to his father much.
If IO get on a train then I like to see the world, etc.
When we go to east TN the mountains we never take out phones at all, we enjoy the beauty of east TN and be a family
It’s not fair. I drop mine all the time and I have yet to have a Secret Service agent help me. BTW, can I get Barry’s PIN so I can do Crackberry Instant Messaging wiff him? Does Barry have a Blue Toof for it, too?
