President Obama and Video Games

When Barack Obama was inaugurated as President of the United States of America on January 20th he became the most powerful man on the planet. A U.S. President has long had the ability to push buttons and launch nukes, but President Obama is the first 'leader of the free world' to hail from the video game generation, and his button pressing ability has already been tested in the virtual world.

Yesterday i was watching MSNBC and the reporter said that one of the Obama staff members said everything in the white house was very out dated like the computers and stuff, and the Obama staff member made the comment "Its kind of liking going from a Xbox 360 to an atari" When he was referencing how outdated the computers and stuff was in the white house..

Obama will be great for the gaming industry as was Bill Clinton.. Remember under Bill Clinton we had the best era of video gaming in history.. the 90s was the best gaming era.. Statistics show that the economy always does better under a Democratic president.

Obama has a 360 and PS3 in his secret room :).

I hope he wont go "protect our children" on videogames and force an even more strickt rating system.
That would kill the industry.

On other note, i think his decision to make stem cell research legal in the US, was a very good decision.
