US presidential challenger Mitt Romney raised chuckles on Saturday when he flubbed his lines introducing his vice-presidential running mate and inadvertently named him top of the ticket. Presenting Congressman Paul Ryan to a crowd of supporters in front of a mothballed warship in the port city of Norfolk, Virginia, Romney gave the rising star of the Republican Party an unexpected promotion.
“Join me in welcoming the next president of the United States, Paul Ryan,” he said, before correcting himself as laughter erupted.
Romney made light of the slip, which might reinforce the view of some commentators that he risks being overshadowed by his younger deputy, joking about his reputation for misspeaking in public.
We walk a fine line here at Uncoached. We certainly do not want our allegiances to sports teams know, nor do we want our political ideology out in the open. With that said, Lord help us if Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are elected President and President.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
