Watch as President Obama gives Apple a shout out during the State of the Union

0. phoneArena 12 Feb 2013, 22:31 posted on

President Barack Obama gave a shout out to Apple and its CEO Tim Cook during Tuesday night's State of the Union address and while there could be a number of reasons for the president to mention Apple, it was the decision of the Cupertino based firm to return some production to the U.S. that motivated the president to mention the company...

Excellent post. All they do is sit around and gripe, instead of acting. That man has the weight of the world on his shoulders...I support his efforts.

I have a right to complain if I want to. I voted, and not for him, and I do not agree with his agenda that he is pushing. Obamacare, for one, is a near 10,000 page bill, yet practically no one read it before it was passed. Nancy Pelosi even said, "Let's get it passed, then we will see what is in it."(paraphrased, but very close). THAT IS INSANE!!!! No one with any reasonable, responsible mind would pass a bill that affects almost every American(except Congress and the Pres, of course) without reading the whole thing! And that is just one example. You are absolutely right I am going to complain, b/c I do participate in the priviledge that is voting, and I do not support him!

Whats the fastest way to get the word out about dissatisfaction about anything. The internet is also one of the few forms of media that no one person or government has control over

You do realize that was a program started by Reagan, which was extended to cell phones by, wait for it... President Bush!

It's a good program and the extension was a great idea. But just like most things in life, people have found ways to exploit it. Does it mean that the many who really need it should loose this benefit because a few have corrupted it?

1.) Tim Cook looks like an ostrich.

2.) Obama and Apple go hand-in-hand......they're both hype.

Why no mention of Moto. The Original Mobile Phone?!!

Not to mention the first to bring a serious all day battery in a 4G smartphone to the market making others follow in it's footsteps.

Props to Apple for bringing back some jobs to U.S.
Wish other so called American companies would do the same.

I wish I could vote for him again. Hate all you want from whatever angle you want...republican, Android, whatever. This country was FUBAR'd before Obama took office, and people can armchair quarterback as much as they like. But the president does what makes since not just for the 99% but for all Americans. It's okay to disagree with some of the things he's done. Heck, I hated the fact that he extended the Bush tax cuts which only makes the rich even richer, but when with the unemployed begin held hostage, there weren't a whole lot of options. He's ending wars, giving real heathcare to millions, asking and rewarding companies who bring jobs back to the US! There is NO ONE on the political stage at this point in time who could do a better job than President Obama, period.

lmao you obviously don't know any political facts. You know just what your idiot friends tell you. Go back and look at what Obama did when he was in Congress. Look at everything he voted for, and against. Remember: Congress runs the country...not the President.

Ron Paul for President. Real freedom and real choice for real people. Nuff said.

Do you know my friend?... No
Do you know what I know?... No

By my count, you've made two assumptions and therefor made an a$$ of yourself, twice! I've heard your opinions regurgitated so many times by Fox News and the people that watch it, yet no one has posted the actual numbers that totals this imaginary $6 trillion you guys keep claiming he spent.

Please, show me how you got that number! Hint, look at the warsthat was started about 6 years before he came into office.

And if Congress runs the country, shouldn't you beef be with them?

Our country is getting more and more jacked up under his presidency, and we are losing more and more freedoms and unemployment is getting worse under his administration. More people than ever before are completely reliant on the gov't for everything That is a communistic policy. How is this a good thing, please tell me.

That was the previous presidents fault. When you screw the country up as bad as he did, how long should it take to fix it? And history has proven, giving more money to rich people and cutting their taxes ain't the answer. Nor is saying "NO" to everything, which is why nothing is getting done.
