Probably just a result of exhaustion, but still funny.

Suitably Flip: Obama Campaign Introduces Customized Lapel Pins

Funny, you would think it would be Hillary looking for extra States right now.

Also interesting how the mainstream media has hardly mentioned this gaff, but yet 15 years later we still hear about Dan Quayle and his potato(e).

Anything youtube gets clipped out while Im at work, I just watched it... Seems a little weak though, I mean no one is that dumb that they think that. Im no fan of Obama but my freakin head would be spinning too with what those 2 candidates have been up to... I do wonder how their constituents back home have been fairing what with them being abandoned for all of this...

Basically, Obama stated that he had visited 57 states on his campaign, had one more to go, not counting alaska and hawaii which his campaign staff wouldn't let him go to. Basically he was tired and meant to say 47, but its still funny cuz he actually had to think about the number, and still arrived at 57XD

Watching it a second time I agree with Mudra.

If you have ever watched Obama speak before, you know he doesn't think that there are 57+ states. :rolleyes:

Absolutely right, on all counts. It would have made the front pages of all the weekly news mags and been the subject of the Sunday talks if John McCain had done the same. "Is He Too Old?" "Can An Ex-POW Handle It?" "Does He Have Alzheimer's?"

You'd think the media would die of shame about its obvious favoritism. But that supposes a sense of shame to begin with. Heh. And the NYT, LA Times and WaPost, and almost all of the major left-leaning US newspapers, are puzzled about how their readership and ad revenue could drop so much in just one year...

stylie, Obama said he'd visited 57 states. Look here: YouTube - Obama Visits 57 States

Woops, I didn't even notice the part of Rafterman's post that jumjum quoted...

Sorry. :p
