If GWB had done any of the following...

  • Said the US has fifty-seven states ("Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it")--OK, fifty-nine, if he's been in fifty-seven but not to Alaska and Hawaii...
  • Said he's seen dead people ("On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.")
  • Been a bit fuzzy on just how long presidential terms are ("the objective of this trip [to Afghanistan] was to have substantive discussions with people like President Karzai or Prime Minister Maliki or President Sarkozy or others who I expect to be dealing with over the next eight to 10 years...")
...we'd never hear the end of it. But since it's Barack Obama, the only way I found out about any of these are in political blogs.
