Do you want a president of the United States — any president — doing instructional videos? I don’t. Is the president the leader of the free world or a tech support call center operator?

Call me old fashioned, but I just don’t think that the most powerful man on the planet coming across like Vicki the Time-Life operator is the image we want to send to those who are thinking about screwing with the USA:

That’s not as well-produced as the video with President Reagan teaching people how to use the Atari 2600, but it’s a pretty close second.

    Haven't seen this kind of talent since Vince Shlomi with his Sham Wow and Slap Chop. Can't wait to see the pics of Barry with the pimp rash on his face like Vince got!
