Barack Obama and the 57 States

Guess what? At a campaign event in Beaverton, Oregon, Barack Obama claimed he had visited all 57 states in 15 months, with one left to go! Ha!

And they love to criticize the Republicans who have made similar gaffes. Anyone heard mention of this?

At this blog, Kevin talks about how there are 57 States in ISLAM......THAT is wild, huh?

And you are SO right. Had McCain or Bush made this gaffe, the media'd be all over it and McCain would be accused of Alzheimers, right?

Even if he had said 47 and not been to two his math would be wrong. Stupid is as stupid says. MUD

The Wonder Candidate is just 'tired' when he makes his gaffes. Like last year in Kansas when he said 10,000 had been killed by the tornado. It was 12. Or the the National Guard is depleted.

If McCain said it, it'd be front page, above the fold, in bold letters. And, he'd be called senile.

Yes, I think that he is counting all those territories. You know, Puerto Rico, Guam and the like. This is one scary dude! He does not send a tingle up my leg ala Chris Matthews. He sends shivers up and down my spine!

Exactly.. we all make mistakes, but what irks me the most is that the media have been merciless when it comes to similar gaffes that Republicans have made. Typical double standard.
