White House Gets F in Geography It confuses Wyoming and Colorado on map for press credentials By John Johnson, Newser Staff Posted Sep 27, 2011 1:57 PM CDT 43 comments Comments This is the real Wyoming. A White House map confused it with Colorado. (Shutterstock) (Newser) – The White House issued press credentials for President Obama's trip west this week with an embarrassing gaffe: The map issued to reporters gets a state wrong. It highlights California and Washington state correctly, but then confuses Wyoming for Colorado. See CNN for an image of the mistaken map. In defense of the White House, they came very close, and neither state is in double digits when it comes to electoral votes.
