Mitt Romney

Introduces Running Mate as 'Next President of the U.S.'

breaking news



0811_romney_videoPresidential hopeful Mitt Romney was so excited to introduce Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate this morning in Virginia ... he accidentally referred to him as "the next President of the United States." WHOOPS!!!!!

Romney realized his mistake when Ryan took the stage and jokingly said, "Every now and then I am known to make a mistake. I did not make a mistake with this guy."

Certainly not the start the Romney/Ryan ticket was looking for, but hey ... at least people are talking.

Then again, here's a theory. If Obama wins, he's still the same President. If Ryan runs in four years and wins, he would technically be the next Prez. 

It's unlikely that's what Romney meant.

Romney could care less about the voting public, just faking it now. How many jobs left America because of Bain Capital, and the ones that stayed in the country, polluted the communities they were located in. Not to mention the personal tax issues.

I'm elated by the choice! This means that Obama has the election wrapped up with a bow!

Obama is:
-- the man who surrounds himself with and seeks the advice of only the radical left and worse
--the man who redistributes (loots) the earnings of the producers to the non-producers so they will continue to vote for him
--the man who embraces the ideas of Saul Alinsky & Karl Marx.
--the man who refuses to take questions.
--the man who supports Occupation Wall St.
--the man who is spending and manipulating the greatest country on earth into financial collapse.
--the man who speaks of "social justice" but never of freedom.
--the man who hates free market capitalism.
--the man who prevents the development of our oil, coal & nuclear resources.
--the man who rejects the Constitution.
--the man who initiates force against us all by “mandating” his health care scam. A true despot.

He is, at best, a cheap Chicago left-wing politician who cares only that he get re-elected to a position he is grotesquely unequipped for -- yet doesn’t take even that position seriously enough to read Economics 101.

Watch the Democrats on the news shows today. They're becoming absolutely unhinged. Mass head explosions. They'll cost themselves the White House!

Corporate Looter/Granny Starver 2012. Vote for the Vulture/Voucher ticket! They can finish the job Dubya started. Unless you want 4 more years of Republican
obstruction, you better vote for the Take the Rmoney and Ryan ticket.

It's obvious who you're voting for TMZ! Really, so stupid, LameBama did EXACTLY the same thing when introducing Jersey Shore Biden. Stick to the celebrity gossip and get out of politics.

Hey Mitt, your desperation is showing. This may not be McCain-Palin desperate, but when you have to pick an arch conservative to get your own side to show up to the polls that is a bad sign. Ryan will win over exactly zero moderate voters, especially when his views are widely known.

And that was bad .... So idk ..... What if I'm right ?

Obama did the same thing so that bodes well for Romney/Ryan. Stop showing your bias. At least he didn't say there were 57 states like Obama did.
