Obama Chooses to be Overshadowed by Apple Tablet Computer


OK, see if you can discern the logic here. This morning, Apple sent out invitations for an unveiling event of a new product on January 27th, which is almost certainly going to be the long rumored tablet; the most anticipated Apple product since the iPhone. More anticipated than the iPhone, in fact.

Then, this afternoon, President Obama announces that he’s going to give his State of the Union Address, also on January 27th.

Now, the Apple event is scheduled for 10AM California time, which is 1PM Washington D.C. time, while Obama’s SotU speech will be at 9PM Washington time – eight hours after the Apple event begins.

Now, I had to ask myself, “Self, why would Obama announce, on the same day Apple announced, an event eight hours later, on the same date, January 27th?” Could he and his handlers be so stupid as to not know that the intertubes will be cooking with Apple Tablet talk when Obama and his Teleprompter take the stage?

mmmmmmmmNo. Probably not.

Then I had to ask myself, “Self, why does Obama want his SotU speech to be buried beneath an avalanche of Apple buzz?”

Could it be that, Obama’s Approval Index sucks, and he wants his SotU event to be off the radar?

Could it also be that, Scott Brown’s polling rocks, and he seems poised to pull the upset of the century by pulling, “Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat” out from under the DNC-anointed Martha Coakley, and that would be a slap-in-the-face referendum on the Obama administration?

mmmmmmYeah, that’s what I suspect.

Unbelievable.

    I think O’messiah & his minders need to time this to have some form of distraction, any form of distraction to counter the fact that he has achieved basically nil during his presidency.

    Look at the ‘stimulus’, there was so much pork & filthy lucre for pet projects it looked more like the All-World-Pigalogue.

    Healthcare reform – read as an expensive farce.

    National debt – keerist he has racked up enough debt to keep 3 generations in penury.

    Basically he needs a distraction because the man has achieved nothing, nil, nada, bugger all, jack shit, fuckspence.

      God, I love Oz-speak! Ya’ll really know how to get the point across!

      Bugger all. Fuckspence.

      Priceless.

      And oh so true.
