KILLING THE MESSENGER:

Barack Obama is obviously in distress and he should be. A majority of the country seem to think he is doing a poor job as president and I strongly suspect a greater number actually believe this is so and don’t want to admit it to themselves and others. . . .

Obama, unfortunately, has instead chosen to kill the messenger who brought some of the bad news. In a speech at Virginia’s Hampton University Sunday he has attacked the iPod and iPad – devices on which you can listen to Mozart and read Tolstoy – as the source of our problems.

The most damning part is Obama’s admission that he doesn’t “know how to work” an iPod. Good grief. Remember when he was going to be our hip, tech-savvy President? Now he’s coming across like Grandpa Simpson.

UPDATE: Bill Quick remembers something.
