When Obama stated that if elected, he would keep his Blackberry, debate echoed through Washington and among the ranks of the Secret Service. What would it be like to have a president who could Twitter, send text messages, and navigate the web with ease? What would it be like to receive a text message from inside the Oval Office and, most importantly, what would it say?
Now, for the first time, We The People are privy to our new leader's epistolary back-and-forths on his wily hand-held device. We're about to discover that his emails (and the replies, from his wife and daughters, Biden, Palen, Rush, Hannity, the new first puppy, and even Bush) are so tuned in to the language of electronic correspondence they come hilariously close to the brink of legibility.
This giftable, imagined glimpse into Obama's beloved Blackberry traverses the mundane and momentous contours of the Commander in Chief's life, from security briefings to spam, basketball practice to domestic bliss, and the panic of oops-I-hit-reply-all, to, of course, the trauma of dealing with the First Mother In Law.

This was a gift (after I was given a BlackBerry for work) as a joke, and I thought "Yeah, very funny. But not my cup of tea," but I was wrong. It was VERY clever and funny. Read morePublished on May 16, 2012 by Karen Siddall
I could have read for hours more; I laughed out loud numerous times. The Bill Clinton texts were the best, but I have to admit that the entire book was really funny. Read morePublished on August 21, 2010 by Serrato
This was slightly amusing, but it was still very one-sided politically - NOT the impression I got from the write up when I purchased it. It was OK.Published on December 1, 2009 by x UHOH x
