I’m Still Looking For The 57 States

How can we ever forget Obama on the campaign trail in 2008, stating that he has been in 57 states,  he said, “uh, because, you know, i-i-it is just wonderful to be back in Oregon, and over the last 15 months we’ve traveled … uh to every corner of the United States. Uh, I’ve now been in fifty … ss-seven? states. I think one left to go. Uh, one left to go — eh, Alaska and Hawaii I was not allowed to go to, even though I really wanted to visit but my staff would not, uh, justify it.” Not only that, but because of his Islamic upbringing, many people think he was referring to the Islamic States. We are all familiar with Obama’s sympathies toward, if not belief in, Islam and his confrontations with Christian doctrine and sensitivities. Was his “57 States” remark a slip of his true beliefs?

Then recently, Obama was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, here is what was said.

LENO: You mentioned infrastructure. Why is that a partisan issue? I live in a town, the bridge is falling apart, it’s not safe. How does that become Republican or Democrat? How do you not just fix the bridge?

OBAMA: I don’t know. As you know, for the last three years, I’ve said, let’s work together. Let’s find a financing mechanism and let’s go ahead and fix our bridges, fix our roads, sewer systems, our ports. You know, the Panama Canal is being widened so that these big supertankers can come in. Now, that will be finished in 2015. If we don’t deepen our ports all along the Gulf — places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida — if we don’t do that, those ships are going to go someplace else. And we’ll lose jobs. Businesses won’t locate here.

I thought Obama was supposed to be a smart man, every schoolchild knows that the cities he mentioned are not on the Gulf Coast, but on the East Coast. I have always said I do not think Obama is as smart as everyone says he is, 57 States, Gulf Coast Cities, maybe I was right all along?

And how could we forget the time he was in Hawaii, thinking it was Asia. “When I meet with world leaders, what’s striking — whether it’s in Europe or here in Asia…” -mistakenly referring to Hawaii as Asia while holding a press conference outside Honolulu, Nov. 16, 2011


“The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.” –Tampa, Fla., Jan. 28, 2010


“Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under a McCain…administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change.” –Amman, Jordan, July 22, 2008


“I’m here with the Girardo family here in St. Louis.” –speaking via satellite to the Democratic National Convention, while in Kansas City, Missouri, Aug. 25, 2008


“In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.” –on a Kansas tornado that killed 12 people.

There are plenty more, but who has that much time. The point here should be obvious, he is not as smart as they say he is and he is even less smart when he is off his Tele-Prompter, but I think most of us already knew that.

  1. I don’t know where to start. I guess by pointing out that the punctuation added to Obama’s text was either yours or another Conservative desperate to make the case that a few slips of the tongue over half a decade is the same thing as dumb. What you have transcribes as “If we don’t deepen our ports all along the Gulf — places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida — if we don’t do that, those ships are going to go someplace else. And we’ll lose jobs” can just as easily be transcribed as “If we don’t deepen our ports all along the Gulf, places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida — if we don’t do that, those ships are going to go someplace else. And we’ll lose jobs.” Try again.

    1. You can spin it any way you want those are his own words. Without his teleprompter he is useless. Try again

      1. Chris I agree with you, the only person dumber than Obama is Biden. I think they made a picture about them, Dumb and Dumber

  2. Sir, I’m not spinning anything. The only thing about this story that bugs me is that Leno is still on television.

  3. You know its really unclear how many States Obie thinks there are. Let’s seeeeee…

    He had visited 57 States already. But he still had one to go; Alaska and Hawaii – which I guess is one State. So it must not be 57 States but 58 States with 59 components. Or maybe he made a mistake and meant 2 states to go. And let’s not forget his State of dope-induced intoxication! So maybe it’s Sixty States…

    Oh, you don’t think he smokes dope? Are you kidding?! To me his STATE-ments are more like inebriation! (Not that he isn’t Stupid too).

    “Uh… yeah. Uh… one more to go; Alaska and Hawaii” Uh, yeah… hey, Joe… pass me that bong.”

    Or maybe he was just SOooooo tired from all that Campaigning! Which only means he’s a Stupid WIMP!

  4. Chris you are correct and Jon you may be correct in your spinglish. I hate to tell you this Jon because I honestly feel bad in doing it, you seem intelligent. Most educated conservative free thinking Americans understand that your man, Barack Insane Obama is at best no matter how many liberal defenders he has in the media world..is still

  5. only qualified for the position of “Village Idiot.” When his teleprompter shuts down and he cannot utter the words that others wrote for him to say he is then reduced to utter babble. Joe Bidden’s depiction of Obama possessing bravado under fire with raw hardened steel courage almost made me puke. He may be somewhat right when history proves his terms in office look more like something from out of a comic book. He played cards when Osama got his. He slept when he allowed four brave Americans to be murdered. Being a neighborhood organizer qualify s him to be President but being a Muslim cub scout does not qualify him to be a Commander in Chief! True Patriots know who this fraud is and with all your smarts you have no clue.

    1. Bravo Jerry, well said. Jon is reading the Conservative Daily News, maybe he trying to learn the error of his ways.
