RUSH: Now, Mark Zuckerberg. Mark Zuckerberg called Obama ’cause he can’t believe Obama would spy on him. He said (summarized), “We never believed, the engineers at Facebook, that when we started designing security that we would have to protect ourselves from the government. We thought we were protecting ourselves from criminals.” So he calls Obama to complain about it, and it didn’t go well.
Zuckerberg posted later that, after he talked to Obama, “It’s gonna be a long time before this gets fixed.” Now, this is just amazing to me. Here you have a guy who’s raising money for Obama, thinks Obama’s the end of the world, the greatest guy, and can’t believe that Obama’s running a government spying on him and his buddies! He’s got real alarm about the NSA spying on Facebook and everybody else.
He’s for “immigration reform.” He’s doing everything he can to help Obama. He doesn’t understand it. Here’s Zuckerberg. In one way, he’s gotta be a very smart guy. He’s a 24-, 25-year-old guy who can call Obama and he’ll take the call. (Hey, Mark? Try calling Putin; see how far you get.) Anyway, he’s surprised Obama is an authoritarian. He is surprised! How do you not know who Obama is?
This is what I mean. I know Zuckerberg thinks he’s a good liberal. He’s a Harvard dropout but he’s still Harvard student. It just boggles the mind! It just boggles. How can he not know? How can they be surprised that Obama is who he is? I just… I don’t know. It’s just a giant puzzle, and it’s also a golden opportunity. I’d just love to be able to sit down with these guys for a half hour and at least learn how they think, ’cause it escapes me.
