Obama Whines About Oval Office Phone: “I’m Like C’mon Guys I’m the President of the United States. Where’s the Fancy Buttons and Stuff”

Now Obama’s whining about wanting more phone buttons.
That’s weird. It looks like he has plenty.

Last night President Obama whined to donors about wanting more buttons on the Oval Office phone.
FOX News reported:

The president, in an unscripted moment with donors in Chicago, was talking about the need to innovate in technology.

“The Oval Office, I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff,” he said during a small fundraising event at a Chicago restaurant. “I’m like, c’mon guys, I’m the president of the United States. Where’s the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up? It doesn’t happen.”

The president made his off-the-cuff remarks with donors as he took questions and after reporters had been ushered out of the event. But the question and answer session was piped back to Washington by mistake and into the press briefing area where a few reporters were still working late.

Hopefully, he won’t have to worry about the cool buttons after 2012.
