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.

No body seems to realize that this has nothing to do with politics.  When we look back upon the I-pod and its cultural impact, the fact that the president of the United States, regardless of his policy, had an I-pod himself says alot of the I-pod’s popularity and importance in this period of American culture.

You all are tools. What’s worse is none of these comments are funny. Too bad this isn’t a yahoo message forum.

um..richard…..pick up a dictionary, or better still, google this:
definition of ‘Drama Queen’.
i think it applies to you.
what you posted about the law proved everyone else’s point. Evidently, you didnt read it. Everything that law is based on is ‘if a threat is made’. If you wish someone would die, its very different to saying ‘i’m going to kill this person’.
i suggest you take a chill pill, stop being so pretentious and overly dramatic and stay on topic next time.

on another note:
Bono gave this to him huh?how much do we wanna bet taht Bush doesnt own teh cd’s, and hasnt paid for the music?
right, pirates, listen up: IF YOU WANNA PIRATE STUFF YOU NEED TO BE IN A HIGH POLITICAL POSITION. THEN THE RULES DO NOT APPLY TO YOU.
what ########.
