White House Map Mixes Up Colorado, Wyoming

by at . Comments

Chalk it up to East Coast bias? Not enough coffee? Sleeping through 9th grade geography?

Whatever the reason, the press corps traveling with President Obama on a campaign swing out west this week were given a map identifying Wyoming as Colorado.

The two rectangular states do look similar, but come on. Colorado is not only crucial to Obama's re-election, it's where he gave his '08 convention speech. Weak!

Colorado vs. Wyoming

Obama's three-day swing took him to Washington, California and Colorado, where he held public events and private fundraisers for his 2012 re-election bid.

Tuesday in Denver, an audience saw a speech on Obama's jobs program.

The larger point of the trip was to help Obama reconnect with voters and gain media coverage in Colorado, which is expected to be a swing state in 2012.

As for Wyoming, Obama lost by 32 PERCENT to John McCain in '08. Maybe subconsciously he blocked that out and forgot the state exists, resulting in this error.

IT DOESN'T MATTER. THERE IS NO WAY OBAMA WILL WIN A SECOND TERM AS PRESIDENT, OF WHAT USE TO BE, THE BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. AND ANYONE LIVING HERE, WHO DOESN'T AGREE THAT THIS WAS THE BEST, AND YOU WERE BORN ELSEWHERE, GO BACK TO YOUR ORIGINAL HOMELAND.

I live in Wyoming and like Barry O just fine. He's in way over his head that's for sure. As soon as he admits that social economic justice doesn't work..he'll have a second term.
