Maybe Tim should speak, as he probably doesn't need a teleprompter, unlike Obummer.

If you mean influential by stealing idea's and making it your own and then sue those who originally came up with it, then yes he should be invited.

Sorry to hear about that bad news about Tim Cook. Hopefully he doesn't fall asleep while Obama is speaking. My favorite words that he says are POCK-E-Staaan and the simple word "And" which he makes it sound like Aaaaaaaannnnnnndddd.
