Impossible. He’s the most breathtakingly brilliant man ever to sit in the White House.

So they keep telling us.

A little flub like this would be proof that a white person is not qualified to be President. Such a thing is not unusual and proof only of the hypocrisy of the media.

nearly everyone I tell about the 57 states has not heard about it yet.

How our media works so hard for their messiah.

My local paper’s headline: “Hundreds turn out for Obama’s speech”.

Hundreds. Space was limited, since it was in a high school gym...but seriously, ‘hundreds’.

If you look at the photo gallery, I think this trip was really the “See, I do associate with white people” photo op, before he goes into full race baiting campaign mode.

“nearly everyone I tell about the 57 states has not heard about it yet.”

Oh, on occasion I’ll tell someone about the 57 states, or mention a quote or two from his book, or even tell them that Obama admitted to pot and cocaine use. The reaction is almost always the same. The listener looks at me like I just told them there is no Santa Claus. Then it seems they chalk it up to me being a “right wing crackpot” and go back to sleep.

Look at how he whips his head back to the teleprompter, when the crowd starts howling. They have let him know its not Texas...but he can’t figure out its Kansas, until consulting the prompter.

Those pesky redneck flyover states are of no consequence to him anyway.
The REAL America resides in Washington, New York, Los Angeles and San Fransisco.
The rest is just to grow food and NOT drill for oil in.

I think its HILARIOUS that the supposed ‘smartest man in the room’ regularly doesn’t know what state he is actually in while speaking. In this case; Kansas or Texas, or last time he was in Hawaii, what Country or Continent he was in.

I’ve arrived at the conclusion that he is the ‘smartest man in the room’ when he is the ONLY man in the room. I’ve known this for some time.

I usually get the reply of"are you sure I had not heard about this and they would have mentioned this in the news wouldn't they" From ACORN, to dead people voting, to black racists in Philly to 57 states, to all of his other cock ups people do not know about it. All they ever say is that he is likeable and smart and hsi wife cares about health HUH she eats fry ups , ice cream and has a wide load.

Texas and Kansas are both in Asia, so they are easily confused.

AHA! If only the “right” could get hold of the codes for programming the teleprompter. We could have all kinds of fun. But, the public probably wouldn’t notice ‘cause they’re not listening, and the media won’t report it.

no way, the video will be played over and over on the TODAY SHOW. Maybe we should bombard all of the lamestream with the link. Nah, it isn’t a GOP. No one cares!

You should have seen him at Las Vegas.
“Hello Nevadans! 12...23....64...76...”
“Pull the plug! Pull the plug! He thinks the Keno machine is his teleprompter!”

He claims Kansas heritage and can’t even tell Texas from Kansas. Well this 57 state bozo was never much beholden to America.
