Ooops! McCain Refers to Romney as Obama – Video

In what was a briefly embarrassing lapse on the part of Senator John McCain(R-AZ,) at a campaign stop with Mitt Romney and also Governor Nikki Haley(R-SC,) on Thursday, while referring to a future President Romney, McCain instead said “President Obama.”  The irony is fantastic in light of Romneycare and other things, so I thought you would enjoy the video.    H/T RightScoop:


Some conspiracy theorists will say that this was a sort of a deep-seated psychological confession on the part of the Arizona senator, but I think it’s just a hilarious mistake.  Of course, I think there is a certain element of irony in it, even though it’s clearly not what McCain intended.  Haley and Romney both gave him a second to correct himself, but when he went on, they both descended upon him, as he finally corrected himself.  You may see less and less of McCain on the Romney campaign trail if there are too many more of these incidents.  I also expect this will become a part of an Obama Campaign ad at some point.

    Mark, I receive you via e-mail. Although you post a video, it can not be viewed directly through the e-mail.

    The only way I can see it….is to scroll to the bottom and select "See all comments". Then your original article appears as well as any comments.

    Simple matter to click on the video and enjoy it.

    I didn't know if you were aware of this little 'glitch'

      Joe, No I wasn't aware of that. I have noticed depending on the device that it seems to work fine on some, and odd on others with respect to the way things display. Much of that is out of my control and part of the standard WordPress interface.
