    Despite the fact that President Obama had a bit of an unexpected moan about “iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations†the other week in a speech at Hampton University, it would seem that the rest of the White House is much more enamoured of Apple’s latest object of desire, going by a story in The Washington Post.

    According to the Post, many of the most important people in the White House these days have an iPad, including White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, senior adviser David Axelrod and deputy press secretary Bill Burton. Economic adviser Larry Summers even takes his to staff meetings, and, not to be left out, communications director Dan Pfeiffer and press man Ben Finkenbinder both have iPads on order.

    The Post asked various White House movers and shakers what apps they had on their iPads, and answers included the Bloomberg app and Scrabble (Summers), the Vanity Fair magazine app, Scrabble, a news app and the complete last season of Lost (Burton), all the newspaper apps and iBooks (Emanuel), and the MLB and NPR apps (Axelrod).

      Idiots. How about quit wasting our tax dollars buying iPads.

      You know they get paid to do their jobs too right?? Never said they were paid for with taxes.

      I thought the last time they posted a similar article, it stated that the government purchased them.

      Either way, I'm not exactly hiding my disdain for this inept administration.

      I have no problems with the government buying iPads if they are used to make things more efficient. My problem is that when two politicians meet, they decide to form a committee and hire twenty people to do the research.

      So 20 more people get hired!!

      If the IDIOTS at the White House like the iPad...that's enough for me...I'm selling mine!

      Amen. Things always work out so much better when you don't study a situation before you commit to a course of action.

      Why don't politicians realize that all problems are simple ones?
