“On the campaign trail, President Obama is constantly talking about the importance of technology, but he met his match in an iPhone Sunday,” Dave Boyer reports for The Washington Times. “The president had stopped at a campaign office in Port St. Lucie, Fla., to thank volunteers. Then, for the cameras, Mr. Obama was supposed to call two campaign workers who were out working on his behalf.”

“But when White House trip director Marvin Nicholson handed the president his personal iPhone, Mr. Obama couldn’t get it to work. A reporter who witnessed the scene said the president looked ‘befuddled,'” Boyer reports. “‘It’s not clear he knows how to dial on an iPhone,’ the reporter wrote in a pool report.”

Boyer reports, “Finally, Mr. Obama said, ‘Oh, I got to dial it in. Hold on, hold on. I can do this. See, I still have a BlackBerry.’ The president then “had a little more trouble dialing,” the pool report said. The president then has more trouble dialing.”
