Gaffetastic… Obama Calls Mitt Romney “George” In Latest Bungled Attack (Video)

Gaffetastic! Don’t expect this to get much play in the state-run media. Barack Obama messed up Mitt Romney’s name in his latest bungled attack.

George Romney was Mitt’s father’s name.

The Telegraph reported:

During a speech at the New Amsterdam Theater in Times Square, the president mixed up his Republican opponent with former Michigan Governor George Romney while contrasting their economic policies.

“We are not going back to a set of policies that say you’re on your own and that’s essentially the theory of the other side. You know, George Romney,” Mr Obama said.

As the audience roared with laughter at the president’s parapraxis, Mr Obama, who was not using an autocue, attempted to explain the mistake before continuing with the speech, later referring to Mitt Romney as “Governor Romney” – a title both men share.

“Governor Romney is a patriotic American, he’s had great success in his life and he’s raised a beautiful family,” the president said. “But he has a theory of the economy that basically says, if I’m maximising returns for my investors, for wealthy individuals like myself, then everybody’s going to be better off.”
