Obama Wants Microsoft To Make a Video Game About US BudgetS

Showing yet again that the prez is down with the kids, Obama's pitched Steve Ballmer the idea of creating a video game...about the US budget. His "down with the kids" campaign is a little rusty, it appears.

Either Obama wants to show everyone just how hard his job is, managing the country's finances, or he really does think that balancing the books is good fodder for a video game. Erskine Bowles, from Obama's administration, says that the game "would enable anyone with a computer to take a stab at balancing the budget" and would definitely "go viral."

I'm sure we can all think of several better presidential chores that should be turned into a game. [USA Today via Kotaku]
