A lot!
And since all the speeches use practically the same verbage, who would think he would get it correct because repetition usually makes you remember things.

What if he's including every country that will be swallowed up in the NAU? What if central american countries other than Mexico that will be swallowed up to??

Just a little tinfoil thinking here

Not good. Unimpressed. Saddened. Bullwinkle sound better and better. Just dodged rpg in cleveland. Dang that was scarey. Not more so than these elections. Ah, Guam, PR, etc. Now that makes sense. Scared me for a minute.

slip-up??? 57 states? you'd have to be brain-dead or anti-American. Afterall, you ignore what you don't like and Obama has ignored the states.

I guess money can buy you and education, but not an IQ. George W. proved that, and now Obama sure is too.

I know double nought. But geez Louise, what the heck!? 57 states? I'm at a veritable loss for words!. Doesn't happen often. Very confused.

Cyberian, he is not including territories .. he said "Every corner of the US", which means one continental land mass.

Though you'd at least catch that one, unless you are pro-Obama.

Something like that ... such a simple statement is automatic to those native in the US (that were born and raised and at least finished high school).

I am undetermined about Obama, however I am anti Clinton and anti McCain. I would vote for the devil himself to stop them.

Which may just be Obama, then again, he might be real.

I do know the media wants him out. So that's good enough for me to take a chance.

Unless he shows himself to be a homicidal megalomaniac as the other candidates have, I will vote for him.

I am hoping he will ask Ron Paul to be the VP!

One thing is sure, no black man in the US will have an excuse to not be mainstream and aculturate as every other race does in a single generation.

I hear ya, but Obama just has some real serious character flaws and he hasn't even been in public office more than 3 years.

The media is supporting him by and large, especially MSNBC.

He'd never ask Ron Paul to be VP, it would be an idiot like Al Sharpton before anyone with half-a-brain would be considered for a position like that in his cabinet.

Truth is, we have no good choices.

Obama is for China appeasement and this is not good at all, even after everything that's happened with China relative to the trade imbalance, contaminations, hacking etc.

Obama has no business being President of the US and never did.

Unless I am mistaken, we have been agressing against China. And China has been painted in a highly negative light.

Perhaps you have been conditioned to perceive them as a threat!

Perhaps we all have been conditioned to perceive everyone our nation agresses against as a threat!

Perhaps we are the threat.

Perhaps we the U.S.A which is no longer the United States of America,
since the states are now subjugated to the Fed; embody all the negative properties once associated with the U.S.S.R.

So, I guess you just dismiss the 8 years in the Illinois state senate?

Also, whereas I will admit MSNBC is the LESS severe of the bunch, they covered Wright just as much as any other news network, AND they talk about Hillary being a fighter too.

And I know this because MSNBC is my network of choice, especially when Olbermann is on.

He also wants to “talk not just to our friends, but to our enemies, like Roosevelt did, and Kennedy did, and Truman did.” Just goes to show how great our education system is.

erhaps you have been conditioned to perceive them as a threat!

Duh! Yeah!!

I guess you've been conditioned, Cyberian, to be somehow clueless??

You must not live in the US. If you do, leave.

8 years in Senate Bigbert? Try 3.

You really are a glutton for punishment.

Illinois senate.

8 years in the Illinois state Senate, 3 in the U.S. Senate.

And here I'd thought you'd done your homework.

(Actually, I knew you hadn't)

It seems to me that he meant to say 47 states. It slides right in. Under the pressure of all the cams and various eyes and countless news programs ripping his words apart and overanalyzing everything, i'm surprised he (and the other candidates) haven't messed up more often.

posted on May, 10 2008 @ 11:18 PM
Screamo, you should know this in your sleep, Just like the ABCs.

I guess Obama could recite the Koran in his sleep but not the correct number of states.

Give me a break. Unbelievable.

If it slipped right in (and he meant 47), then it would be only 49 states and still not the right number.

Get a clue.

Hey, screamo, you and Tguntony seem to have gotten it right! Thanks for helping to Deny Ignorance!
