How Many States Are In The USA?

Us States

Last weekend we stayed at a hotel in Portland where we were watching the morning news. They showed Obama speaking in Beaverton at the start of a two-day swing through Oregon.

“It is wonderful to be back in Oregon,” Obama said. “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.” – I guess Alaska and Hawaii are not important enough to visit…..

This was on real life TV news and not on a comedy show. If you don’t believe me, you can watch it on youTube : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpGH02DtIws

When I applied for US citizenship, the US State Department for Immigration asked me how many states there were in the USA? If I would have answered 57, I would have flunked the test. After all, the 50 white stars in the blue field of our flag represent the 50 U.S. states.

Oh my, and this guy wants to become president of the USA?
