Greta Van Susteren apparently wasn't too happy with some of President Obama's remarks during his commencement speech at Hampton University. Here's the part she and a whole lot of other right wing blogs decided to cherry-pick and harp about.

With so many voices clamoring for attention on blogs, and on cable, on talk radio, it can be difficult, at times, to sift through it all; to know what to believe; to figure out who's telling the truth and who's not.

...And with Ipods and Ipads; and Xboxes and Playstations—-none of which I know how to work—information becomes a distraction, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than a means of emancipation.

President Obama warns you about the iPod? What's up?:

He's got an undying love of his Blackberry, constant presence on Facebook and song-packed iPod--so why did Obama rip into gadgets over the weekend?

And Tucker Carlson joins Greta to prove that no matter how trivial the subject, he's always glad to help rip into President Obama. Tucker just gave me another excuse to share this again. Tucker... you're hurting America.
