The Need For Improving Social Studies Skills

"What it says is that I'm not very well known in that part of the country," Obama said. "Sen. Clinton, I think, is much better known, coming from a nearby state of Arkansas. So it's not surprising that she would have an advantage in some of those states in the middle."

A Geography Lesson for Mr. Obama (Click on the Image to Enlarge It):

You will note that Kentucky and Indiana border Illinois, the Obamessiah's home state. At no point do the states of Kentucky and Indiana touch Arkansas. Perhaps on the 59-state map you've been consulting they do, but here in a place we like to call 'reality' they don't.

I'm embarrassed for all the Harvard and Columbia grads out there. I hope at least some of you paid attention in Geography. Look on the bright side, though; at least he didn't sit in Geography for 20 years before he figured out where Arkansas is.
