[Ed. – I know you’re disappointed that it wasn’t Al Gore.]
It seems that Rep. Trey Gowdy , R-S.C., was onto something when he called House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi “mind-numbingly stupid.”
According to Pelosi, the federal government, not Steve Jobs nor Apple, created the iPhone.
The Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday that Pelosi made the statement at the Mid-Atlantic Democratic Platform Forum, an event designed to prepare the Democratic Party’s platform.
According to the Free Beacon:
“Anybody here have a smartphone?” Pelosi asked an audience at a Democratic National Convention Platform hearing in Washington, D.C.
Pelosi then held up an iPhone for everyone to see, telling those in the room, “In this smartphone, almost everything came from federal investments in research. …
“They say Steve Jobs did a good idea designing it and putting it together. Federal research invented it.”
