Obama 'friending' Zuckerberg, Jobs, Schmidt

Washington (CNN) – If President Obama had a personal Facebook account, he might be "friending" technology executives to help advance his innovation agenda right about now.

But instead Obama has decided to fly to San Francisco Thursday afternoon to actually meet with Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and other tech executives in person to continue the dialogue he promoted in his State of the Union address about government working with the business community to help build American competitiveness.

    Zuckerberg? Who turned out to be not the mastermind behind Facebook but took the idea of his friends and passed it as his own and became a millionare on his friends idea and creation. At least now he's labeled as co-founder of Facebook. Oh yeah, like Zuckerberg can give Obama advise on government working with the business community on competitiveness, what would he know on competitiveness as he didn't practice it himself?

    This is just part of the President's re-election campaign. No news here. He got elected initially from the use of social media and I think to get re-elected, he's going to have to engage the web even more than he did back in 06-08.

    Only thing Facebook produces is a database of personal information that is likely for sale to the highest bidder. Will Steve Jobs be honest and tell Obama that they outsource to China because it's too expensive to produce in the USA?
