Um...excuse me?

"Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the 57 United States."

Though I have reveled in watching the two democratic candidates hang themselves repeatedly over the past several months, I have generally kept my opinions to myself. There are enough political blogs out there already without me giving my two cents on the message of "hope" and "change"...actually, that two cents is about all his message is worth, but that's another story.

This Obama slip-up however is just too amazing to pass up. You won't hear about it on the Obama lovin' networks, but here it is in all it's ridiculous glory.

I would venture to guess that most, if not all, homeschool preschoolers could tell you how many states there are in the United States. It's not hard, really it's not. Apparently however, this bit of information is not important if you are seeking to be the leader of the free world.

Um, excuse me Mr. Obama, but I believe the answer you were looking for is 50.

Maybe we should cut him some slack...after all, he wasn't homeschooled.


  1. Oh my goodness!! That is priceless! It is hard at times to not be overcome with fear when I think of the future of our country, but then I make myself remember that God is ALWAYS in control, no matter who our leader is. Though, wouldn't it be cool to have a homeschooler as president one day - one from our century that is...:)


  2. after all, he wasn't homeschooledteehee ;)

    It's probably the new math. ;)
    I think he probably meant 47 which leaves him with one more to go (excluding Hawaii & Alaska). I wonder why "they" wouldn't let him go to those two states. Too bad "they" couldn't keep him from visiting all the other states too!

    Sigh, politics...
    Sigh, this election...

  3. That is crazy! What is that man thinking? Lets hope we don't have him as a leader!

  4. Oh... I heard about that on the Rush L. show this week. :sigh: That's CRAZY! Poor guy... he's really botched it this week.

    We'd better keep praying... I hear he's the party favorite.

    HEY!! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Appreciate it. Ü

  5. I hope he doesn't get elected.

    I hope you are having a good week.


  6. That was a pretty amazing blunder...he was having to do some serious math there on the spot.
