U.S. President George Bush a confirmed Apple iPod user (images included)

In Time Magazine’s latest issue, U.S. President George W. Bush is profiled as Time’s “Person of the Year” and included among the photographs by Christopher Morris are a couple of President Bush on or near his Trek bike with the caption, “At a Secret Service training facility, Bush bikes and listens to Van Morrision’s Brown Eyed Girl on his iPod.” Bush also sports what look to us to be Etymotic Research ER-6i Isolator earphones (see our review “Review: Etymotic Research ER-6i Isolator earphones – September 10, 2004, for more information).

Earlier this year, MacDailyNews noticed a line in a piece by Susan Baer for The Baltimore Sun about Vice President Dick Cheney: “His family life, too, has been kept largely under wraps, though in some ways it is remarkably ordinary, right down to the iPod the vice president received from his children for Christmas,” Baer wrote.

So, now we know that the top two positions of the U.S. Government’s Executive Branch are occupied by Apple iPod users.

  1. Ok, well, at least he’s smart enough to use an iPod.

    (Unless his PR dept. recommended it.)

    Btw, MDN – please remove the audio ads. The smart spin stuff is cool, but hey, I get free containers from my local pasta place and they’re just as easily stored. And they’ve got clear lids and black bases (not some crappy blue color)

  2. Using Isolator earphones while riding a bike is a sure recipe for disaster. Mind you, I’m sure the President is surrounded by the secret service so will never need to worry about a threat sneaking up to him in his isolated world. Love my iPod but would never listen to music while riding a bike, besides if I ever wipe out in the snow and ice, I’d have to throw my body between the hard ground and my iPod. Ouch.

  3. Hey maybe we liberals can stop calling George Bush a moron and start calling him an asshole..

    He’s got advisors that know where the Economy is going..Social Security’s going.. where the military spending is going.. where medicare is going…

    Calling him stupid just makes it look like he’s well-intentioned..

    He’s not..

    At a Secret Service training facility, Bush bikes…

    I’m pretty sure he’s under no danger from civilians or motor vehicles in this instance.

  5. We already knew everyone used an iPod… apple doesn’t have to run any slogan, no matter how partisan you want the company to be.

    Why does Apple spend millions on making ads for products everyone already knows about, yet spends nothing on ads for lesser known products…. my simple mind can’t comprehend.
