McCain mistakenly praises Obama during speech for Romney on January 5th 2012 in South Carolina.
More info from WCNC:
CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Mitt Romney visited Charleston, South Carolina along with Governor Nikki Haley and Senator John McCain on Thursday to continue his push for the Republican presidential nomination
It's a long, hard road for the candidates and the people who endorse them, too. During his speech on behalf of Romney, McCain had some mistakenly nice things to say about president Barack Obama.
John McCain Slips Up, Says 'Obama Will Turn This Country Around'
While speaking at a campaign rally Thursday in support of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) mistakenly professed his faith in President Barack Obama's ability to improve the economy.
"I am confident, with the leadership and the backing of the American people, President Obama will turn this country around," McCain said, as seen above in a video from Goose Creek Patch.
McCain -- who endorsed Romney on Wednesday just after the GOP hopeful won the Iowa Caucus by a razor-thin margin -- appeared at the rally in Charleston, S.C., along with fellow Romney supporter Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.).
The crowd, as well as Haley and Romney, quickly realized McCain's error. Haley leaned in to correct McCain, grabbing his elbow.
"Excuse me, President Romney," McCain said.
The Obama-Romney mix-up wasn't the only awkward moment during McCain's appearance. According to BuzzFeed's Zeke Miller, McCain made a comment about Clemson University's "victories on the gridiron."
Clemson lost the Discover Orange Bowl to West Virginia University on Wednesday night. Miller later tweeted that McCain intended the line as a joke.
From Perez Hilton News:
Remember when people said they thought John McKain was too old to be president? They may have been right!
While he was supposed to be endorsing Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential candidacy at a rally in South Carolina, the senator told the conservative crowd he is confident President Obama will turn this country around.
It takes a few seconds to sink in, but Mitt casually steps in to remind old John what he was supposed to say.
"Me! You're supposed to say me you stupid old fart!" LOLz!
Just kidding! He didn't say that, but we bet he wanted to. This is one of the best political blooper's we've ever seen and maybe even...a Freudian slip?
Check out the video above and slap this on your favorite Republican's Facebook wall!
This may be on ominous sign for poor Mr. Romney!
