Obama knows the United States, all 60 of them.

Check out this video, where Barack Obama brilliantly showcases his knowledge of American geography:



Let's see... he has been to fifty-seven states, not including Hawaii and Alaska, and he still has one left to go.

So according to Obama, there are sixty states that comprise the United States of America.

Question: shouldn't the President of the United States know basic facts about the country he's running? OK, so maybe he was "tired". He "misspoke". Who gives a crap? Everyone knows how many states there are, and they know that at approximately five years old. For him to get something so simple, so basic, so elementary wrong is mind-boggling.

Instapundit reader Jeff Cauthen suggests:
Somebody should ask him to name all 114 US Senators.

Now let's just imagine the media reaction if McCain had said this.

Maybe he was including all the provinces in Iraq and Afghanistan since Liberals think we're imperialists, that'd be a normal thought.

I can't throw stones at this one. I could quite easily be thinking of what I was about to say, then think of how there are 50 states, and say, "57". That he didn't catch it, though, indicates that he probably isn't listening to himself speak.

This is a clear sign that Obama is way too old and senile to be POTUS.
