    Hard to imagine something so stupid. To wave a cellphone and talk about the "premier innovation" in Telecommunications is far from claiming to invent the Blackberry. This shows that Obama is either stupid, or hoping his voters are.

    It may in fact be both.

    Yes its true... McCain did in fact invent the Blackberry. Of course he had to seek technical help from Algore on connecting to the internet he created. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    FWIW: Besides being full of,at best, half truths, Politics have become down right idiotic.

    My comment was about the idiocy of the Obama campaign. The claim was the McCain had been part of allowing free enterprise to make such advances as the Blackberry.

    The problem is Blackberry's or RIM is in Canada and was not developed in the US... Microsoft has a similar program that isn't nearly as popular.

    One last comment then I'm getting back out of the Politics board..

    I thank God for the invention of the BlackBerry, not because it makes my business life easier but because it allows me to access biblegateway.com, half a blue million Christian commentarys, blogs etc etc, and through it I found this board. :godisgood:

    Now if I could just figure out how to block RL Allens site I could quit coveting.:laugh:

    Did McCain Invent the BlackBerry?

    ........Gore was widely mocked for his claim that “I took the initiative in creating the Internet,” although anyone who reads the entire comment in context can easily discern that Gore was actually saying that he authored legislation which cleared the way for what we now know as the Internet. And Holtz-Eakin was making a similar claim about McCain’s work as chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee.....

    The upside to this is that McCain knows which committees he serves on. Obama thinks he's on the Senate Banking Committee, but isn't [​IMG]

    Why do you hate to tell me what I already know?

    Not really. It was stupid.

    No, I think that was stupid too.

    O.K. I have BlackBerries growing along my back fence line and I can tell you for a fact that John McCain did not invent the Blackberry. This happens to be one of God's better creations.

    We used to have wild blackberries in Massachusetts. Not many out here.

    On our real blackberry(tm), we can go for over 200 miles, on some loops, without service.

    Also heard today John McCain invented the Printing Press, that is why he is confident in the fundementals of the economy he can just print up some more paper money. 180 billion here, 80 billion there.;)[​IMG]
