Obama's 57 States of Confusion

Is Obama Smarter Than A 5th Grade Jaywalker? -- Doug Patton -- GOPUSA

Obama refuses to wear a [US] flag lapel pin because he thinks it is more patriotic to criticize his country than to support it, or even to wear a symbol of its support.

Obama thinks those of us out here in flyover country are all a bunch of bitter, gun-toting, Bible-thumping bigots furious at "those who don't look like us."

But wait. There's more. Just when we thought Obama had shot himself in the last foot he had available, he presents us with another gift.

On top LAPELGATE and PASTORGATE and BITTERGATE, now comes STATEGATE. It seems that the brilliant Barack Obama doesn't know how many states there are in our union. In an off-the-cuff statement you will not hear about on the nightly news, Obama declared that during his presidential campaign, he has visited 57 states. He also said that he has one more to visit: Alaska and Hawaii.

Gaffes occur. George Bush can provide enough material for entire episodes for SNL. Many of the uh...misspeaks can be rationalized. Doug Patton pointed out a few, namely this one, "At least when Quayle questioned the spelling of potato, he had some basis in fact for his inquiry: the plural of the word is "potatoes" - with an "e."

What is Barack Obama's basis in fact for claiming the USA has 57 states? Inquiring minds would like to know the root of Obama's Freudian slip...

Well, we do know there are 57 Islamic states.


Organisation of the Islamic Conference - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is an international organization with a permanent delegation to the United Nations. It groups 57 nations, most of which are Islamic, from the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia, Caucasus, Balkan, Southeast Asia, South Asia and South America.


How the Islamic states dominate the UN Human Rights Council International Humanist and Ethical Union

Every year from 1999 to 2005 the Organization of the Islamic Conference, representing the 57 ISLAMIC STATES, presented a resolution to the UN Commission on Human Rights, called “Combating Defamation of Religions”. While the text of the resolution referred to all religions the preamble made it clear that the sponsors’ concerns related primarily to one religion: Islam.

At Mecca Meeting, Cartoon Outrage Crystallized - New York Times

leaders of the world's 57 Muslim nations gathered for a summit meeting in Mecca in December, issues like religious extremism dominated the official agenda. But much of the talk in the hallways was of a wholly different issue: Danish cartoons satirizing the Prophet Muhammad..

Perhaps Obama was in a momentary state of confusion...or perhaps, he wasn't talking about American States at all...

Angle, Thank you for posting this. It is nice to know that there are some that might entertain the idea that possibly there might be something to this.
