Per CNN's Mark Walz, the credentials given to members of the press corps traveling with President Obama on his campaign swing out west this week included a map that mistakenly identified Wyoming as Colorado.

The two rectangular states do look similar on the map, but it's a pretty embarrassing error, especially considering how important Colorado might be to President Obama's re-election chances next year.

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

Make sense. Obama thinks there are like 57 or 58 states so there is no reason to think he or anyone on his staff would know where they are all at.

I am joking of course...or am I? :smokin:

funny error, but that's all it is. I read through the comments on that article. People actually think Obama himself laid out that graphic. lol
