President Obama gets to keep his Blackberry...

Who'd have thunk there would be such a stink about the President Obama having a Blackberry... and even though he gets to keep it, he has to follow "security rules".  So he can only email certain "top level people and close friends" and only certain people will be able to email him back.   It's like Big Brother wants to play Mom & Dad with the President now... how sad.

Yep and we the people can eventually have access to those emails. I heard that a few days ago on the news, according to some regulation.

I think its more to do with security issues than big brother...I think he will be fine.

 

Enraging liberals is simply one of the more enjoyable side effects of my wisdom.


Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.


You know why there's a Second Amendment? In case the government fails to follow the first one.

That's kinda sad, but I'm sure he was well aware that those things might happen. To him, the country is worth more than his privacy.

This isn't a "Big Brother" issue. It is an issue of national security. Those things are so easy to hack into.

At least he gets to keep it.  I honestly felt bad for him that he was told sure you can run the country but OMG no you can't have a Blackberry!
