President Barack Obama has been criticizing Mitt Romney’s math skills. Regarding the budget of the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan ticket, Obama has said, “That’s not bold leadership; that’s bad math.” But Obama did some bad math of his own while campaigning in Florida.

On Saturday, in Kissimmee, Fla., the President was mathematically challenged.

“We can create a million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years, because we’re selling goods around the world stamped with three proud words: Made in the USA,” Obama said.

He repeated the math mistake Sunday in Melbourne, Fla.

It’s not the first time that numbers have given the President difficulty. In 2008, he thought he had been to 57 States.

“Over the last 15 months, we’ve travelled to every corner of the United States,” he said during his 2008 campaign. “I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it.”
