Here's one more reason for becoming a president (hint: iPad 2 is involved)
Some people work hard to get their iPad. Some even sell their kidneys (sadly, not kidding here). American Barack Obama became a president to get his one a bit early. Okay, now we’re kidding, but fact remains that the US President got his iPad 2 directly from Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs, a bit early.

"Steve Jobs actually gave it to me, a little bit early. Yeah, it was cool. I got it directly from him," Obama said in an interview for ABC yesterday.

Just how early? We are going into guessing territory here, but one possibility is the February dinner Obama had with tech moguls including Apple’s Steve Jobs, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Eric Schmidt. 

With this in mind, we can safely say that Obama joins Apple’s “Presidents’ club” as back in June Russian president Dmitry Medvedev got the iPhone 4 from Jobs. One more reason to strive for a political career, we guess.

Really who cares! With all the issues going on in the United States the last thing we should give a damn about is who has an iPad and who doesn't. Here's an idea use that iPad and solve some of these issues, there has to be an app for that!! ~Just Sayin~

First of all, President Obama did not become President of the United States of America to get a damn Ipad. Second, please address him as President Obama instead of Obama. The American people gave him the title and the office of president after all.

I could understand that apple would give the rusian president a tracking devices. maybe FBI/CIA/whatever have interest in it.

But....
wouldn't it illegal for an (american) civilian to give the (american) president a tracking devices????

The reason why Steve Jobs gave Odumo an iPad is to have him replace his telepromters with iPads, but the moron in chief said no.

Odumo would get rid of the Secret Service before he gets rid of the teleprompters. He wouldn't know what to say without them other than um, um, um.

Clearly you are an idiot....keep talking so we can find just how stupid you really are. FN tea party reject for sure; I know you prefer Cheney/Bush. Everyone knows Bush was the dumbest president to step into office. Google the 20 dumbest things that bush said.....no better yet google the 50 dumbest things that President Bush said!
