Barack Obama to bring Wii to White House

We’ve had news before indicating that our very soon-to-be president, Barack Obama has affection for video games, but it turns out that he’s been doing some gaming in recent weeks. Coming from a recent article in the New York Times, it turns out that Barack and Michelle Obama gave their daughters a Nintendo Wii for Christmas, and Sasha and Malia aren’t the only ones playing it:

"Mr. Obama said he’d have his hands full attempting to rescue the American economy. But he has gotten in a little practice in bowling lately on the Nintendo Wii his daughters received for Christmas. Mr. Obama, who famously struggled in bowling during last year’s Democratic primaries, said he performs better in the video game."

Awesome! Being a Nintendo aficionado I totally dig hearing that Barack is doing some Wii Bowling. It’s definitely good to know we have a gamer president. Bill and Hillary are reported game boy addicts during long trips, but no one knows about George W. Bush. What is known is that Nintendo gave Bush a copy of Brain Age when that came out, but considering the last few years, it’s highly unlikely he played it.
