Barack Obama Says 15 US Senate Seats are in Play in 2010 … Really, After All There Are 57 States


WHAT??? 15 states in play for the US Senate … is Obama including the 57 states that he campaigned in 2008 where he had one left to go but his staff would not allow him to visit Alaska?

Remember this doozy from the Obama campaign trail that should have been fair warning to all?


President Barack Hussein Obama in a fundraising email stated that 15 US Senate seats were in play in the 2010 midterm elections. Really, just over the weekend Republicans stated that it might take two cycles to take back the Senate. So what does Obama know that all other pundit and pollsters do not? 15 states? Even if one includes CT, DE and NY, there is no way that 15 states are in play.

I’m counting on the DSCC to win the 15 Senate seats still up for grabs over these last 15 days. But they need $919,100 before midnight Thursday to unleash a massive GOTV blitz this weekend.

The DSCC has already begun to shift momentum in our favor in critical races – but Republicans only need to win 10 of the 15 seats up for grabs to take the majority. I’m counting on you to step up and help the DSCC meet its goal of $919,100 by midnight Thursday. Please give today and your contribution will be matched, doubling your impact.

 Remember, every dollar given today is matched, doubling your impact on Election Day.

From The Hill:

President Obama implored supporters on Monday for donations to help Democrats in the 15 Senate seats he said were “up for grabs” on Nov. 2.

The president painted a picture of an expansive map of competitive Senate races in a fundraising e-mail for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC).

McConnell (R-Ky.) the majority leader.

The nonpartisan Cook Political Report lists 11 races as “toss up” contests, nine of which are currently controlled by Democrats. Republicans are also seen by Cook as being well-positioned to pick up Democratic seats in Indiana, Arkansas and North Dakota.

      I remember that gaffe very well. He went on to say that he has 3 more states to visit but would not go to Alaska. That’s actually a total of 61 states. I read somewhere that there are 57 steps in Islam. Could he have been confused besides being misinformed? It’s really something when we have a president that needed to be told how many states in the United States. Something wrong with this man.

      Of course there’s “something wrong” with this guy – -he’s a “presidential impostor”, just for starters. Need I say more? (because I can–lots more)

      Soetoro is one of the few living converts from Islam to ‘Christianity’.
      Actually, Islam is not a religion, but, the engrained teachings of
      the 57 States of Islam sure sticks with the converts.

      obama is so insecure that he’s campaigning in all 61 states this year.
