Obama fumbles....again - Obama: '10,000 People Died' in Kansas Tornado - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum

Obama is making a few stumbles out there on the campaign trail. His initial flubbing of the "what would you do in the event of a terrorist attack" question at the debate, and his overstatement of the death toll in the Kansas tornado. The gaffes by themselves are not fatal. In fact, given that the electorate is largely unlikely to focus on the campaign until after Memorial Day, one can make the argument that if there is a time to make such "non-lethal" mistakes, this is it. None the less, if his campaign becomes a string of such gaffes, they could become fatal errors.
