Obama Math

Posted on September 10, 2012 11:30 am

Obama was channeling Biden this morning when he told a crowd in Florida that American manufacturers were making products “marked with three proud words: Made in the U.S.A.”

I’m really starting to see a trend here. I think both the presidential and vice-presidential debates should start out with a few simple math problems, like 2+2, or “how many fingers am I holding up”?

    No, that’s a completely accurate statement. ‘Made in the’ is three words he’s proud of.

    Can I be the guy who asks him how many fingers I’m holding up?

    ..which brings me to two of my favorite math jokes.

    There are only 10 kinds of people in the world: those who know binary, and those who don’t.

    Two plus two equals five, for exceedingly large values of two (there is actually some math logic behind this…).

    Give him a break…he’s not used to counting anything that isn’t in Billions or Trillions!

    “Obamathink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” Like… Made in the U.S.A.= three words.

    I expect that the questions in the “debates” will go something like this:

    “Governor Romney, please give a list of all baryons and the properties of the quarks that compose each.”

    “President Obama, there is a four-legged animal, frequently kept as a pet. The first two letters of its common name are ‘d’ and ‘o’.”

    Obama will, of course, get his question wrong, because he thinks of dogs as livestock, not pets.

  9. Jay says:

    I forget, is Florida the 57th state?

    He was presumably talking about products made in the 51st through 57th states.
