Why does John McCain think Iraq borders Pakistan?

Isn't foreign policy supposed to be his strong suit? Maybe when he learns how to use the internet he can look up a world map and get his facts straight.

    Obama thinks there are 60 states, 57 he had been to, 1 more to go except for Alaska and Hawaii.

    Not remembering exactly where Pakistan is one thing since it is not in the USA but living in the USA and not knowing how many states there are is quite another.

    Obama said that a tornado in Kansas killed 10,000 people when in fact it only killed 12

    Perhaps someone should get Obama a map of the US.

    Obama also thinks Canada has a President instead of a Prime Minister.

    You would think that if you were going to say that you have foreign policy experience you would start with neighboring countries.

    McCain may simply have had a slip of the tongue and meant that Pakistan borders Iran as well as Afghanistan.

    At least McCain doesn't see dead people while giving a talk on Memorial day.

    Hmmm....Iraq doesn't border Pakistan but Afghanistan does. We all know that the Bush administration was interchanging Iraq and Afghanistan in press conferences for many months after 9/11 in hopes that the American public would get so confused that they would support a war with Iraq. Its possible that McCain got similarly confused.

    this could be an rather great escalation of hostilities because it would contain enlarging the definition of 'border' to a intensity of a pair of thousand miles. it would then incorporate the Islamic Republic of Iran, it is located between Iraq and Pakistan. a lot of his supporters see no situation in this in spite of the undeniable fact that, and you will vote for him and them in case you pick.

    He made several gaffes, including Czechoslovakia (several times).

    He is out of touch with reality and cannot handle the job. I'll give him credit for taking a computer class. But he is too old for such a stressful job. He should focus on being a senator to the fine folks in Arizona and let someone else seek the vacancy.

    Obama thought Canada had a president.

    Obama slip on Canada

    At Tuesday night’s AFL-CIO forum in Chicago, Obama was asked if he would scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement as president. The senator from Illinois said, “I would immediately call the president of Mexico, the president of Canada, to try to amend NAFTA, because I think that we can get labor agreements in that agreement right now.”

    The only problem is Canada has a prime minister, not a president.

    Why does Barack think there are 57 states? Why does Barack think he can be president for '8 to 10 years'?

    Did he not take American History?

    Source(s): All of these are silly - let's move on to something else.

    McCain probably can't read a map either. He slept through most of his classes at Annapolis--all that partying.
