Remember when Obama was the technocrat President?

Praised for his understanding of technology at it's implications. He even had a Blackberry that he insisted be hooked into the the White House network despite the security concerns.

How does this get explained then?

"You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank all that high on the truth meter," Obama said at Hampton University, Virginia.

"With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, -- none of which I know how to work -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation," Obama said.

He can't operate the 4 simplest technological devices known to man? Even that buffoon* George W. Bush can operate an iPod. I know this because the media went to great lengths a number of times to ridicule his playlist. If he can operate one and Obama can't what does that say about the intellectual quality of the man chosen to lead the US thru these harrowing times?

*that was snark in case anyone is on the verge of getting offended.
