He thought there were 57 states in the United States of America.
He needs not one, but two, teleprompters to speak to grade school kids:
He mispronounces Marine “Corps” as “corpse”:
He can’t even pronounce “Massachusetts”:
And now the latest, from the Harvard-Law-graduate smartest president evah….
H/t beloved fellow Tina!

On Monday, some members of Congress called on Barack Obama to correct the record after he misidentified the national motto in a speech in Jakarta, Indonesia, last month. “In the United States, our motto is E pluribus unum — out of many, one,” he said, comparing it to the motto of Indonesia, “Bhennika Tunggal Ika — unity in diversity.”
The national motto, of course, is “In God We Trust,” and has been since 1956, when it was changed from E pluribus unum. Obama, though, has a habit of leaving God out of the discussion. On several occasions, he has quoted the Declaration of Independence and spoken of being endowed with unalienable rights while leaving out the all-important “by our Creator.”
In a letter, the representatives wrote, “By misrepresenting things as foundational as the Declaration of Independence and our national motto, you are not only doing a disservice to the people you represent, you are casting aside an integral part of American society.” As Ronald Reagan once put it, “If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
