Paul Ryan's IPhone Case Makes Quite The Statement [VIDEO]

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan has one eye-catching iPhone.

While speaking at a town hall meeting in Wisconsin this past Wednesday, a photo was snapped of the VP hopeful with a camouflage phone clipped to his hip.

Turns out, Ryan is rocking a Defender Series OtterBox case, priced at $59.99 on the company's website. This accessory is meant to provide "unrivaled protection from rough treatment in the worst environments," making this iPhone case perfect for election season.

"We've got protection for the punishment you endure," says a man with a slow, southern drawl in the hunting-themed promotional OtterBox video. Check out the full clip below:

This video has us thinking Ryan's phone case is a strategic appeal to a certain collective of voters. Or perhaps he just needs his waist to blend perfectly in with tall grasses?

Either way, Ryan's probably got more skill with an iPhone than Barack Obama, who had a momentary iPhone "oops" while campaigning in Florida last week. The president couldn't get a handle on dialing a number from the smartphone and chalked it up to being an iNoob. "See, I still have a BlackBerry," the president admitted after fumbling briefly with the iPhone. (Maybe he'll switch over to the Apple side now that the iPhone 5 is out.)
