What bothers me is that he didn't realize it. Was it not in writing on that little script deal he was reading off of? Yeah i understand people make mistakes and truly this should hardly be an issue. As far as the " I like this 'cause it shows that he's human" comments. With all those socialist ideas, he damn well better be more than human, 'cause thats the only way socialism could work in its truest form. Perfect Government/society needs a perfect administrator. If you can't remember that the US has 50 states and not 59 then I'm pretty sure you aren't that perfect administrator. Oh wait, disregard all my comments, I'm just bitter with the government cause I live in a small town.

maybe what he meant to say just came out wrong......
perhaps he was trying to say that hes been to different states 57 times.....
Counting his visits not his states??

Just a suggestion.... I don't know anything about the election or the candidates...

What I find interesting in the video is hes says 57 states hes been to, but then to make things worse he adds he has one more to go to
then on to say Alaska and Hawaii he did not go to
This to me is hardly a slip of the tongue.

So even with the less two of Alaska and Hawaii he is still off by 8 states.....big slip up there hmmm.
See we are just getting the same old, same old.

exactly. i like minor slip ups. it shows me they are real. like i said earlier, though, if it happens frequently, it shows me stupidity and the aching signs of a puppet trying to speak or move without it's puppeteer or script.

if obama never made mistakes...i'd be more worried that something sinister is in the works. at least right now, it's not apparent

lol, i do not mind a slip up once in a while.

But for god's sake, look at bush, the guys whole career has been one big slip up!!!!!! He should actually be in comedy, but then again, he would probably screw up the jokes!!!

If he becomes President of the USA, I would worry for the rest of the world. My dad, who is an American is none too impressed with the man, and my dad says he hasn't got the bottle like Hilary Clinton and would make America more of a laughing stock.

I think he would be a puppet, and if he is elected I think it would be because they know they can manipulate him, but not Hilary. Hilary is not a push-over like Obama comes across to the public.

His blunderings on historical facts, which every president should know, and his sexist comments calling women, 'sweetie' is a bit sickening. What does he think that all us women are children, or is he going to be like Bill Clinton when he gets into office.

Hilary wasn't unfaithful to her husband, and has shown herself to be a force to be reckoned with in the face of criticism.

Obama was quick to point out her blunder, but he has made several more and she even had the decency to apologize for her mistake. He keeps repeating his mistakes. Lord forbid he makes any mistakes while he is in office. G-d help the USA.

I have nothing against the man, as an individual, but being a natural born citizen of the UK, who had the privilege to go to school in America and being a daughter of an American Serviceman and his British Wife, I do take an interest in American and British politics, especially where leaders are concerned.

I had Gordon Brown weighed up right from the start, and the blunders that he has caused our country is going to happen to your country, as Obama and Brown are cut from the same cloth. They have the same persona and come across too over confident, and full of bluster. They dither on issues that are important to the people, and are more concerned with power than the people.

Gordon Brown has fulfilled every prophecy I had told my husband about him. It is a shame that I didn't post them here. There is just something in the both of them that wreaks of wanting great political power, and yet manipulated easily by outside sources.

I will pray for the American People if Obama is the candidate for the democrats. If it were between Obama and McCain, I think McCain would be the better of the two, as he is not weak like Obama. On the other hand, if it was Hilary and McCain, then Hilary is the stronger of the two, over all she is more dynamic.

Obama would be wise to have Hilary as his vice-president, if he is the candidate. She can steer him in the right direction and keep him on track having been a first lady, and help his wife to prepare for her role as first lady, as she will need it.

Like I said, I am not judging the man, I am judging the politician. I am from the outside looking in and I can see clearly what kind of president he will make. He will probably need his wife like Bill needed Hilary.

It isn't just the 57 state gaff -

Barack is totally ignorant of critical foreign policy issues For example, he claimed that “Arabic” translators are needed in Afghanistan. This is inexcusable for someone who wants to be Commander-in-Chief. The languages of Afghanistan are Pashto and Dari Persian.

Again - looks like Obama has 'lost his bearings'.

Just for the record I think all of the present candidates are pretty lame and examples of the same old political BS. Now Hillary has had her fair share as well as McCain, but when ever anyone picks on poor little Obama,his Obamatrons freak out. Well anyway enjoy Obamas speaking skills here

So that must me that everything that comes out of Obama Mamas mouth is a joke right....and besides I think everything he says is a joke..he flip flops on everything and thinks hes GOD! Come on can someone already start his transformation into the white house and is planning his second term already, when he doesn't even have a VP picked....and the main reason ELECTIONS HAVEN'T HAPPENED YET! But wait a min, that is a joke too right....for someone who always crys about his name and wants to wear big boy pants why are you defending and making excuse for him...he wants to be a big boy!

I have not heard a credible thing from either of the dummies America chose
you get what you deserve
good luck with it
No one gets elected that they do not have plenty of skeletons in the closet on
America is already the laughing stock of the world
and it can only go up in world opinion from here
for it is on rock bottom of the barrel thats filled with excrement

Why do you democrats have to make excuses for him? he's a big boy isn't he? and besides if it was McCain that made that "slip up" i'm sure all you democrats would be on that one, but as soon as a republican says something about the almighty obama all of a sudden it was a joke, it was a slip up, he's only human, you're being racist...maybe its just he's an anti-american dumb ass

I have not been on ATS for a while and came back the other day. It's a long story.

Rush Limbaugh did a commentary on this I guess on his radio show.

Obama may very well be the next president. I don't like any of the candidates. Shame we don't have Ross Perot running again. I'd vote for him. He at least had some economic policies and wanted to keep jobs in this country.

Ok, I think I've figured out what Obama meant with his 57 States comment, I just need al ittle help with the last state.

Here is what I have so far:

  • state of confusion,
  • state of denial,
  • state of distrust,
  • state of arrogance,
  • state of emergency,
  • state of euphoria,

  • new topics
