Barack Obama could not figure out how to use an iPhone at a campaign stop in Florida yesterday… So he lashed out at one of his supporters.

The Washington Times reported:

On the campaign trail, President Obama is constantly talking about the importance of technology, but he met his match in an iPhone Sunday.

The president had stopped at a campaign office in Port St. Lucie, Fla., to thank volunteers. Then, for the cameras, Mr. Obama was supposed to call two campaign workers who were out working on his behalf.

But when White House trip director Marvin Nicholson handed the president his personal iPhone, Mr. Obama couldn’t get it to work. A reporter who witnessed the scene said the president looked “befuddled.”

“It’s not clear he knows how to dial on an iPhone,” the reporter wrote in a pool report.

Finally, Mr. Obama said, “Oh, I got to dial it in. Hold on, hold on. I can do this. See, I still have a BlackBerry.”

The president then “had a little more trouble dialing,” the pool report said.

The president then has more trouble dialing. When the call didn’t go through, he blamed Mr. Nicholson for having an insufficient cell phone plan.

Of course, if this happened to Mitt Romney it would be all over the networks this morning.

  1. Every real American knows how to use an I-phone.

  2. This is kind of like asking the pres. grocery prices. No story here.

  3. Ah crap!

    I forgot how to dial a phone number. I’ll just dial the operator at 911.

    “Hello, I need to talk to Scott Van Duzer’s bother…” Ah chit, it is the police!

    Marvin Nicholson did not by and expensive enough cell phone plan! He needs to be fired. Well, somebody needs to be fired!

  4. Barack you POS
    Stop betting AGAINST the American People

    Here are the Facts

    But the article misses one big point. . they just count jobs. .not quality of jobs and employment. . .
    Under Obama, new jobs are mainly McDonald’s Burger Flippers

  5. B-but, he’s the COOL President…he knows all of the young people stuff, or something.


    I’m sorry, but are you kidding me? Based upon these numbers, one speech which has been debunked as 90% lies by an impeached President and known liar has had more effect on this race than HORRIBLE unemployment numbers? Based upon the numbers from many pollsters, Obama has not been damaged by the unemployment report – at all.

    So the lies from a known liar win and reality loses? God help us.

    Has this nation gone mad?

    Here is the really scary part. Rasmussen claims that Republicans now lead Democrats by 4 points in party identification. Is he really telling us that there are Republicans saying they will vote for Obama in large numbers simply from one Clinton speech?

    I’m sorry, but I simply find this hard to believe.

  7. Here’s another question.

    Rasmussen is polling LIKELY VOTERS with a +4 Republican sample and he is getting the exact same result as Gallup who is polling REGISTERED VOTERS with a +3 Dem sample?

    I’m sorry, but the math here is incomprehensible to me? Just as a pure function of the numbers in use, Romney should be 7 points higher on Rasmussen? How the hell can they be the same?

  8. The Narcissist in Chief cant work an I-Phone ?

  9. The Narcissist in Chief cant work an I-Phone ? Mr I,I,I or me me me, ????

    I call him the I-phony

  10. Phone Home Lil’ Wayne…>

  11. I can’t work one either. But then, I don’t own a cell phone, ‘smart’ or otherwise. But I don’t make sneering coments about people being inept at technology, like taking shots at President Hayes. You wanna pretend that you’re hip and understand gadgetry? Fine. In that case, such normally trivial points become salient.

  12. @ BILL MITCHELL……No, It wasn’t Rasmussen that had 0bama at 50%—it was Public Policy Polling (PPP),which always polls for the liberal. Besides,there’s always a bump after a convention speech. It will fade. Just keep putting the real truth out there that we have to get him out because ………….. Be of good cheer.

  13. I-phones are racists.

  14. #8 Has this nation gone mad?

    No, it went mad in 2008 when they elected Obama.

  15. Remember, folks, he is supposed to have the combination number to the nucular football briefcase. Maybe it’s stored in his blackberry.

  16. Another moronic story by this blog. I stay away from apple products. But know my way quite well around windows platforms. This being the case, I would likely stumble over Iphone operation. So what? There is more than enough to castigate O over, than having to resort to this kind of non-story.
