President Obama visited one of his campaign offices in Port St. Lucie, Florida on Sunday and borrowed an iPhone from one of his aides. But the Washington Times reported that the backward and technologically inept President couldn't get the phone to work.
"It's not clear he knows how to dial on an iPhone," a pool reporter noted while observing the President grappling with the 21st century device.
The pool reporter then noted that Mr. Obama "had a little more trouble dialing."
Later on, when the President's call failed to go through, he faulted the owner of the phone for having an insufficient cell phone plan.
A campaign staffer then called out to Obama, "I'll give you my phone, call my wife."
"I'll call her and tell her that you're messing around here in the office, giving the president ....," Mr. Obama said, his voice tailing off.
Moe Lane notes that it's only natural for the President to shift the blame for his own ineptness on the owner of the phone:
"Blaming other people is the default option for Barack Obama."
And lastly, it is worthy to note that the Obama campaign, in 2008, released an ad depicting Sen. John McCain as Technologically inept.
