PRIORITIES … When a joke sounds more like reality.
It is just one more instance where President Barack Obama might have wanted to say on script and read his teleprompter. Barack Obama said during a fund raiser in Chicago to donors that when he got into the Oval Office, ” I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff.”

The president, in an unscripted moment with donors in Chicago, was talking about the need to innovate in technology.
“The Oval Office, I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff,” he said during a small fundraising event at a Chicago restaurant. “I’m like, c’mon guys, I’m the president of the United States. Where’s the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up? It doesn’t happen.”
Obviously we realize Obama was trying to make a joke; however, for a President who many feel does seem to be too small for the position. Obama stating that he is disappointed that he does not have new gadgets and a “cool” phone hardly helps the image that many have of his president who golfs and vacations far too often. Obama is perceived by many as being in over his head and overwelmed by the job. Many have joked the only reason why he wanted to become president was to get the perks and ride on Air Force One. Barackl Obama hardly needs to provide any more ammunition.
