Obama Doesn’t Know When the Election Is

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


According to Obama, Social Security is structurally sound even though it’s in deficit spending, the resurgence of Al Qaeda in North Africa is just a bump in the road… and don’t ask him how many more days it is until the election.

Obama then stumbled on the number of days until the election — “what is it, 34?” he said, before being given the correct number, 36.

“So whatever it is,” Obama said, “it’s really coming up quick and obviously Nevada is going to be critical to this fight. Nevada’s going to be close. It’s going to be close all across the country.

Whatever country that might be. Don’t ask him how many states are in the United States. He got that one wrong already.

This was a day before the debate and Obama was whining about having to stay indoors and do his homework. No seriously.

“Basically they’re keeping me indoors all the time,” Obama told a supporter on the phone during a visit to a Las Vegas area field office.

“It’s a drag,” he added. “They’re making me do my homework.”

To be sure, Obama also said he had a “great prep” yesterday, and “it was a lot of fun.”

And then the nice lady gave him a gold star and some cookies and let him play in the yard. But yes clearly Obama lost the debate because he was too smart to come down to Romney’s level and communicate with the peasants.

    Yeah he doesn’t know how many states there are in his host counrty – how many did he visit? 57. But he certainly knows how many states there are in the ‘Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’ – yep 57

    What does he actually know? When he displays what he "knows" Romney blows it out of the sky like clay pigeons. Because what he knows is either based on a bankrupt philosophy, fraudulent data or flat out deception.
    He's been lying thru his smile so long he doesn't even know what is truth and what is fiction and the press never challenges him. That is why he will not win any of the debates and the more he faces Romney the smaller he gets.

    …because stupid is the new smart, and this guy has never held a real job.

    Poor 0. They are, as he said, making him stay in and do his homework. It's a drag. REally!. Doing his job is a DRAG!!! So vote him out!! Eclesiastes 10:16 "Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child…."

    Well, I'd be inclined to cut a candidate some slack about the number of days. Fatigue does take its toll.

    Bazinga!

    What could he be fatigued about? His golf game?
