Another Huge Gaffe: Romney Introduces Ryan as ‘Next President’

Join me in welcoming the next president of the United States, Paul Ryan,” Mr. Romney said, as Mr. Ryan took the stage.”

The actual presidential candidate quickly realized his error. “Every now and then I’m known to make a mistake,” Mr. Romney said. “I did not make a mistake with this guy I can tell you this he’s going to be the next vice president of the United States.”

Do not take it lightly,

we may INDEED need Libertarian Party in 2016 and 2020 since GOP wont give us a chance.

Supporting Gary Johnson after Tampa is a must for all who want to maximize liberty movement.

You know we're winning when

even Mitt subconsciously knows he's not the next POTUS.

Obama did the same thing

and Ron Paul makes some public speaking mistakes too.

It's all about the frequency

It's all about the frequency in this guy's case. :)

Like Two Peas in a Pod - Romney needs a Teleprompter, just like

Obama needs one. And the American people are electing men that can't even give speeches without it in writing for them. Ron Paul is so smart, he out does them both. He just speaks from the heart, nothing but the truth from him and what is best for America and Americans. We love you so much Dr. Ron Paul. Here is to you being nominated as our next Republican President!!! We want you to make history and we are going to help you by being in Tampa to show the world just how much we support you!

Off to the Santa Cruz Beach .Will be Reading a Ron Paul Book

Love Santa Cruz and going for a good run..My beautiful girl friend always outruns me. I swear that gal should be in the olympics..She has great wings I guess..

Finally, we are going to have a very romantic evening watching the sun go down over a bottle of Dom...

Love you guys,

Compared to What?

Frankly, Ron Paul tops them all when it comes to mis-speaking: he frequently says the opposite of what he means because he tends to think in parallel tracks and gets them crossed (I have brilliant family-members who do the same).

Compared to Romney's gaffe exposing his complete ignorance of the Constitution and of the duties and authorities of the president ("consult my attorneys"), this one was insignificant and irrelevant.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Yeah he's kind of like Moses

He's slow to speech, and says goofy stuff, like "pricing houses" instead of housing prices...but damn, the man speaks the truth. Doug Wead names him "The Great Provocateur" He's the grandfather of the liberty movement, and he KNOWS how to start those brushfires. He's inspired millions to become warriors for the cause of liberty, and I know we'll have a great orator in there somewhere. ;)

I can't believe that none of you realized

the "slip" was on purpose!

Look at all the extra media coverage he got with that slip. If he hadn't f'd up, his VP pick would have been a couple lines, now he's got it played all over the world. ANY publicity is good for this clown who is barely treading water in the political pool.

Romney Can't Affort to Look Stupid - It was not intentional. He

just needs to suspend his campaign, he is not going to be elected as president, period...

Bilderberg probably has him lined up for 2016

They keep accidentially telling the truth. Oh we're SO excited over Romney and his phoney conservation neocon Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan has a plan that might balance the budget in 30 years! I'm so excited!

Beautiful comment

Excellent selective use of capitalization and colorful word play.

Hey he got it half right.

Hey he got it half right. Not Paul Ryan. But Ron Paul! We're slowly getting there.

Two shorten the road.

Excellent

Scum and Scummier!!

There's a better chance that Ryan will follow Obama as

President than that Romney will.

Obama's 12 second opps!

The sunconscious mind cannot lie

The subconscious mind has a way of bringing the truth out. IMO Romney was never intended to win, his purpose is to block Ron Paul from the nomination. With assistance from the MSM and the banking cartel Romney has been propped up and a clear path opened up for him to get the nomination. So it looks like the plan is to reelect Obama and Paul Ryan will be running POTUS in 2016.

Sorry to disagree on this one...

but this is not a huge gaffe.. Obama did the same EXACT thing when introducing Joe Biden as his pick.. Ok some will say this just proves more that Romney/Obama are the same as they made the same gaffe, maybe lol.. But, it also is not a big deal. Romney could've chosen a lot worse in a VP pick..

It would not be so bad

But it is continuous with him. Watching it I just knew he was going to blow it.

Yes

There's a whole history behind that - The teacher misspelled it, and Quayle thought the lesson was to have the kid spell it correctly, so he repeated the teachers mistake.

Of course the media went insane.

Romney is on Meds

It's a sad testimony to our country that Rx zombies are deemed to be, not only "normal," but also qualified to be president. An addict is an addict -- prescription psychotropic drugs or otherwise. This individual is not fit to serve. He is not capable of handling life on life's terms.

Not that anyone here cares,

Not that anyone here cares, but those are libelous comments unless backed by evidence.

maybe a bit of an overstatement???

That Is All You Saw

NBC, ABC, CBS, etc. are talking about this as they first cut.

Thats not even funny

Rather pathetic instead. Frown on face and shaking my head...
