Get real. He obviously misspoke. That statement right there is why 14 year olds aren't allowed to vote.

even if he meant 47, Alaska and Hawaii still only make 49 and he said he has one to go, Alaska and Hawaii

I'm real, I'm not a robot.

And if that's why, then how come 14 year-olds never could vote? How could they base a rule off of something that happened today?

Because he said that he's not fit to run the country simply because he misspoke. You guys do realize that Barack Obama graduated Magna Cum laude from Harvard Law, correct?

He said he has been to 47, has one more to go and is NOT allowed to go to Alaska and Hawii(For whatever reason). That is 50.

Dude, it was ONE simple misspeak. HE SPEAKS ALL DAY 24/7/365. This is nothing to hold against a person. If McCain said this I wouldn't hold it against him either.

You're right that he probably has a high ratio of correct speech:mistake speech, but I don't think he's talking 24/7/365. How does he sleep?

Obama still sucks and would make a terrible president. And Yes I am of age to vote and am in college so I hear plenty about the election and I am well aware of the topics at hand.... yet I am choosing not to vote this year because both of the main candidates (Obama and McCain) are both ****heads.

Well then why didn't he correct himself? And why did he say Hawaii and Alaska were three states?
He did correct himself. This whole thing happened months ago.

It's just a funny speaking mistake. Just like when McCain said he would veto all beers. Anyone who thinks he actually does not know how many states there are is an idiot

Sorry, nice try. This picture you cited doesn't demonstrate Bush's stupidity, the fact that Liberals like you think it's real, demonstrate yours, don't you think huh??

And people want this guy running the states? And he doesn't know how many there are?

please. the guy graduated magna cum laude from harvard law school and columbia undergrad. to paraphrase kar0012's youtube comment:

i'll take a wild guess and say he meant to say he's been to 47 states with 1 to go, and referencing Alaska & Hawaii (that's 50). It serves everyone better by voting for someone who is going to advance the solutions conceded by experts (economy, energy, etc.) than vote for the most aurally pleasing candidate (or based upon random flubs, for that matter, as both candidates have a wealth of them).
