John McCain created blackberry magic
John McCain’s top economic adviser made claims on Tuesday that the Republican candidate was the person we need to thank for the “miracle” BlackBerry, could this be true? I think not. Douglas Holtz-Eakin chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee when asked how his experience in that position helped him understand the economy and lead the country through turmoil, he just waved his BlackBerry in the air, it was reported in The Politico.
As he waved the BlackBerry in the air, he announced “Telecommunications of the United States is a premier innovation in the past 15 years, comes right through the Commerce committee,” he then added “So you’re looking at the miracle John McCain helped create and that’s what he did.”
Strangely enough a Canadian company called Research In Motion developed the BlackBerry, suddenly the internet was inundated with sarcastic posts regarding his comment. It’s been said that when John McCain heard of the comment he just laughed, and it was reported that he called the comment a “boneheaded joke.”
Let us know what you think of John McCain’s comment on inventing the BlackBerry?
