HAMPTON, Virginia US President Barack Obama lamented Sunday that in the iPad and Xbox era, information had become a diversion that was imposing new strains on democracy, in his latest critique of modern media.

So lets see where will America be in ten years?
Will they be more free in Communist China? Or Socialist America?
Well, hell, Fidel Obama should just ban those devices now that we’re a communist country.
Never mind the diversions of blame, racism, and wealth envy.
Zer0 needs to get A golf game for his X-box. Willy Gates could give him one for Mothers’ Day.
Since those nasty little X-boxes are imposing such strains on our democracy.
Which we DON’T have. We have a Representative Republic...
Maybe O should go back and take some history classes.
I did not realize that when I take my I-pod to the gym I’m imposing “strains” on Democracy. LOL
*O* is such a lying SOS. Isn’ t he the one who was addicted to his Crack...berry?
“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. ...

“It could only work if each of us stayed informed and engaged, if we held our government accountable, if we fulfilled the obligations of citizenship.”
OMG you are right!
But we are the little peasants who cannot afford to be distracted.
He on the other hand.. is our “Dear Leader” lol
What an embarrassment to the human race.
And didn’t his whole Presidential campaign run on “new media”??????
About how he was with this young generation and he knew about all these devices and was with the internet generation compared to that crotchety old Mccain?
Now he says he doesn’t even know how to work an i-pod?
Sounds like they are warming up the old “we didn’t get our message out” excuse for their upcoming drubbing at the polls.
Laughable as always.
I can't stand to watch or listen to any of his blathering, it's getting harder to even read the crap he spews.
At this point I admire Putin more than this pos.

IPOD | Candidate’s playlist ranges from Jay-Z to Dylan to Yo-Yo Ma — ‘I have pretty eclectic tastes’

WASHINGTON Bob Dylan. Yo-Yo Ma. Sheryl Crow. Jay-Z. These aren’t musical acts in a summer concert series: They’re artists featured on Barack Obama’s iPod.
Growing up in the ‘70s, Obama said, he listened to the Rolling Stones, Elton John and Earth, Wind & Fire. Stevie Wonder is his musical hero from the era. The Stones’ ‘’Gimme Shelter’’ tops his favorites from the band.
The Illinois senator’s playlist contains these musicians, along with about 30 songs from Dylan and the singer’s ‘’Blood on the Tracks’’ album. Jazz legends Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Charlie Parker are also in the mix.
All I know is I have started watching a whole lot less tv because his grating voice and ugly mug is on every freakin’ channel. I turned to Animal Planet one day to get away from his grating voice and wouldn’t you know it they were doing a show on the Portuguese Water Dog.
Keep away from my ipod you POS narcissistic ahole.
The onslaught of the nanny state getting more and more aggressive.
