President Obama of the 57 States of America!

A while back you may recall I claimed Barack Obama believed there were 57 states in America. Now whilst I intend to be fully supportive of him the coming week… I have been asked to prove that he did indeed make this remark… So here it is… the next President of the United States claiming he has visited no less than 57 states….

  1. I think he claimed to have visisted no fewer than 57 states.

    And I love the way that Sarah Palin didn’t know that Africa wasn’t a continent. Also he doesn’t suggest that there are 57 states. He implies that there’s 58 or 59.

  2. He actually implies there are 60 jack :P … He states ‘Ive visited no fewer than 57 states’ before going on to say he has ‘one more to visit’ whilst acknowledging he couldnt visit ‘Hawaii and Alaska’… 57+1+2=60… pffttt …. Labour and their mathematics no wonder we’re in such a mess :P

    oh and BTW Sarah Palin isnt going to be President lol

  3. “BTW Sarah Palin isnt going to be President lol…”

    She wasn’t a million miles away and she still isn’t.

    “He actually implies there are 60 jack”

    So you were out by an even larger margin than I thought. Reminds me of Prague tory’s claims on government borrowing.

  4. Does anyone seriously believe that Sarah Palin didn’t know Africa was a continent?

    Praguetory’s predictions on this year’s government borrowing (£100bn) are going to be a lot closer to the truth than yours or the government’s previous forecasts.

  5. We’ve had this discussion before. Your predictions did not include the changes made in the pbr. If you want to continue this discussion perhaps you should respond in the relevant thread.

    As for Sarah palin, most of Fox News (!) believes it to be true.

  6. My comment was a reference to something that had been established in another thread. If PT wanted to continue that debate then he should have continued when we were having that debate. If you have something to say about it (which i doubt), then you are welcome to join in.

  7. “Your predictions did not include the changes made in the pbr.”

    Of course my predictions forecast further deterioration in the public finances. The government forecasts were behind the curve (and the PBR predictions will still understate the deficit). I was prescient.

    “If you want to continue this discussion perhaps you should respond in the relevant thread.”

    Is this your website?

  8. Your forecasts were of the order of government borrowing of £100bn which was way out until helped by the PBR and even then it hardly counts as accurate. The only thing more ridiculous than your prediction was the method with which you made it.

  9. “My forecasts were ‘helped by the PBR’…”

    It’s a bit like saying that if I had forecast that Villa would achieve 70 points this season, my prediction would have been helped by the fact that Villa keep winning. Yes – that’s what a forecast is you chump.

  10. No an economic forecast is based on economic factors not unforseen policy changes. It is nothing like what you have described with villa. If you don’t understand this (and I think you actually do), then I’ll explain it simply for you: Borrowing was heading for somewhere under £70bn and you said that it was “RUNNING AT £100BN” which it wasn’t. Alistair darling made the decision to cut taxes early, something that you failed to predict. It was never running at £100bn and the recent change is more the result of a change in fiscal stance than the underlying economics. The VAT cut will cost (arguably) £12bn. So in fact the fiscla outlook for 2008-2009 did not involve a deficit of £100bn.
