Bush shows off presidential iPod

imageIt was already known that U.S. President George W. Bush is an avid iPod user, but now a video has been posted by Sky News that shows a candid portion of a recent interview in which Bush discusses the iPod.

Reading from his fourth-generation iPod, Bush says artists include: The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Alan Jackson, Alison Krauss, The Angels, The Archies, Aretha Franklin, and Dwight Yoakam. He is corrected when he calls Don Mclean, known for the classic song “American Pie,” Dan McLean.

The president noted that U2’s Bono came to the White House and showed off the latest iPod. Bush said that his iPod “was a clunker” compared to the new model, referring to either the fifth-generation iPod or iPod nano. In addition, Bush said he also owns an iPod shuffle. “Pretty high tech stuff,” Bush said overall.

Didn’t Bush admit that he had pirated music on his iPod in one of these interviews? Something about how he put a bunch of his friends music on there?

Wow. An endorsement from the President of the United States of America. Those other DAP players have no hope of catching up with the iPod’s success anytime soon!

I wonder if Bush got Don McLean from a P2P program since a lot of “shared” music is mislabeled.

Wow ‘me’ you are quite the adult in your post. I hope you know you just broke Federal law.  On second though, I just did a screen capture and will be alerting the authorities following this posting. I hope the Secret Service will be giving you a call soon.

Um, last I checked, it’s not against the law to wish death on a political person. Actually conspiring to do so or going so far as to try and do so, sure, it’s against the law. But simply saying that so and so should die is protected speech. We live in America, got it?

Richard, i’m lucky. I live in a country where they dont kill people for oil, and dont torture people- actually we dont even have a baboon for president. visit me, its cool. really :)

funny, so do I!  And I’m from the United States.

Code Monkey – It might me just me, but I check things called laws, you might have heard of them. Specifically, I suggest you look into something called US Code. Specially,  Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 41 § 871. I think what was posted was a threat, but then again its not my call, all I can do is to alert the authorities and let then look at it in the context of the law. 

BTW, this is what it states…

a) Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits for conveyance in the mail or for a delivery from any post office or by any letter carrier any letter, paper, writing, print, missive, or document containing any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States, the President-elect, the Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President of the United States, or the Vice President-elect, or knowingly and willfully otherwise makes any such threat against the President, President-elect, Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President, or Vice President-elect, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

(b) The terms “President-elect

One: “me,” the Secret Service has the full right to investigate you for saying that on the board.
Two: “jarofchris” I don’t know if you’ve seen the pictures from Abu Grahib or heard anything about Bush’s fight for us to keep torturing people, but we DO live in a country that tortures people. Whether we really killed people for oil or Bush actually believes he was liberating Iraqis, we’ll never know, but I tend to believe the former.

me - You are an idiot.

Let me ask you this…
