    Apple 2.0 had this interesting shot of Obama staffers on their blog today:

    Makes me sick. Those young people no doubt pontificating their benevolence on the huffpo comment boards while on MY DIME.

    Actually, I don't care WHAT they are doing on the computer.
    1) I surely do not agree with it
    2)They SURELY do not need Macbook pros to be doing it. But then again, obama is SOOO OMGZ COOOOOOL

    Its too easy to be liberal and charitable when you have access to the pockets of 304,059,724 Americans.

    Somewhere in that madness, I think there was a point. Or maybe not.

    I do wonder, though, if the MBPs are essential to get the job done (they look silver, not white). I would think a MB would have been more than sufficient.

    Also, what about suit guy? Doesn't he get something to play with?

    1. You have no bloody idea what they are doing with the MBPs, so get off your high horse and assumptions of what you THINK they are doing. If you think they are doing so, prove it.

    2. You have no bloody idea if they bought them on their own dime or not. Them having MBPs is none of your concern. All you are full of is a bunch of 'what ifs' and assumptions that the taxpayers paid for it. You weren't complaining about Blues or Reds using PCs/Macs on the taxpayers dime. And I suppose you'd have no problem at all if McCain/Palin were elected, and these people (or others) were there using MBPs.

    3. Comments like baseless ones like these make me sick.

    4. This thread should be moved to PRSI, just based on your post alone.

    so using Apple products excuses his and their idiocy?

    or does it give many board members delusions of grandeur?

    A well thought out political opinion.

    What idiocy? Do you know who those people are individually or are you just taking petulant pot shots again?

    The girl sitting in front of the window looks like she has a "Zynga" bag next to her. So you can bet at least half of her time is spent playing Farmville or CaféWorld or YoVille. lol

    What idiocy? Tell the truth: you're just upset you never had an opportunity to use the Wi-Fi in the White House.

    The only delusions of grandeur I see here are in your post.

    PS: You're a PC.

    I wonder if this was ever an issue back when they had to buy expensive typewriters and such for staffers.

    SHOLES & GILDDEN TYPEEE WRITTTEERRRZZ LOOK AT THE STAFFERS GO
    omgzzz THEY ARE SO HIP AND YOUNG THEY HAVE SHOLES & GLIDDENZZZ

    Actually, I don't care WHAT they are doing on the type writer.
    1) I surely do not agree with it
    2)They SURELY do not need a Sholes & Gildden to be doing it. But then again, obama is SOOO OMGZ COOOOOOL

    :p


    Most of the idiocy is leaking out of congress, not Obama.

    Sorry about that. I was debating where to post it and first considered PRSI (simply because the word "Obama" is in the subject), but figured "How bad could the comments get with just a photo of some Mac users?"

    Then I saw the first comment and realized my mistake. In any case, looks like it got moved now...


    I don't know what any of these things you're referring to are, and I think I am glad I don't.

    I don't know much about those sites/games, but the consumerist had a great article about Zynga a little while back.

    ^ Wow. Racing to the bottom for the most hate-filled, unreasonable post in the PRSI forum?

    Do you have the same opinion about Limbaugh or Dubya's use of Macs?

    They're Facebook Flash Games by a company called Zynga.

    I don't know. That arms folded/legs crossed pose screams, "I've been rejected by every woman in this room. Don't photograph my shame!" :D
