"Lets make sure they write that we did our part. That we chose more government instead of more freedom."
Doesn’t make any difference.
His speech was great.
Yup....I heard it too...it was a very obvious mistake. We know that he does not feel that way.
I heard it but immediately knew he meant the opposite!
Only if it used as a sound bite. I heard it and felt a bit confused as it was said.
I picked up on that too
I noticed that as it happened then I wondered if I was listening to the context incorrectly but this thread confirms that it was not just me.
I think he knew he got it backwards. I saw it in his face. But when nobody mentioned it I thought it was me listening wrong and that he was trying to describe how Obama thinks things should be.
The published text has it right.
I wonder if the teleprompter text was right?
Very obvious to my spouse and I as we listened on the radio.
Considering the clear heart and meaning of Rubio’s speech, and I thought it was really good, and I don’t really think I like Rubio all that much at this point, only a petty, little maggot would do that, so I fully expect the democrats to do exactly that.
But such an action will only hurt them. Rubio came across very well.
If it had been me and I had noticed it, I would have corrected myself right there.
People might overlook something like that but not the tape.
And not detractors.
Forget it, he’s rolling.
I almost think he knew. A review of the tape will show it. It was a very shallow expression of “oops”. Almost as if he were thinking “oh well, it’s been said already so I’ll just continue as if nothing happened”
If anyone was worried that the speakers in the last hour would outshine the candidate, rest easy.
Rubio was a vice presidential choice. Romney made a great choice with Ryan.
Don't forget to do the best part...........
Add lib for an additional 7 minutes.
I remember when he said it, but the live thread was moving too fast to post. Some did mention it later.
greatest speech of the night! Romney actually did a very good job also, and i was impressed by those that gave us a glimpse of romney’s compassion.
I could only think, what will barry counter with? will he tell us how he held the hand of a community organizer during an abortion?
or how he dried the eyes of a marxist while his pastor said “god damn america!”
yea, show his past. show his records. bring the fascists on to support him.
of course, he has no past, therefore he should have no future.
My 2 cents
Whew! He really did say that - I thought I was hearing things!
Slip of the tongue in an otherwise awesome and well-delivered speech.
Called reverse psychology. Brilliant maneuver.
Yes indeed. Rubio was good, but Ryan was even better, more pointed and on target.
I would say the two best speeches of the convention were Ryan’s and ... Ann Romney(!) - “This man will not fail”.
I thought the same thing. “He’s no Paul Ryan”. For all the hype, and I like Rubio very much, his speech was good but not great, IMHO, and just showed that Romney made the right choice at this time. I certainly hope Mr. Rubio continues to rise and may yet someday lead our great nation.
It’s good to have a deep bench.
so he misspoke. i think his speech has excellent.]
No Akin treatment for Dream Act Rubio, eh. Rubio’s still great but Akin has to get out.
Agree. Perhaps Romney knows strength as some of us thought not. I see Ryan as President some day.
Hope he doesn't beat himself up over it.
He's a much better public speaker than I could ever hope to be.
Your comment is quite funny. I actually laughed out loud upon reading it.
When you’re 85 you can be excused from mixing things up now and then. Loved him!!
It was a great speech and he is a great American!
My hubby and I heard it. We were hoping that he would correct it. I was going to post it on the live thread; though had to leave. I am not certain but I think some of the people in the audience noticed it as well.
Bluto: Hey! What's all this laying around stuff? Why are you all still laying around here for?
Stork: What the hell are we supposed to do, ya moron? We're all expelled. There's nothing to fight for anymore.
D-Day: [to Bluto] Let it go. War's over, man. Wormer dropped the big one.
Bluto: What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
Otter: [to Boon] Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.
You know, I’ve been somewhat distrusting of Rubio. He’s come out with some things that make me think RINO and such.
And I’m gonna ahead and say this because I’m an honest guy. I’m a little leary of hispanic politicians at this time. They all seem to be pushing for a goal that I’m generally against in some sort of amnesty. There’s a pretty good chance I won’t vote for someone if they are hispanic for this reason. I’m not ashamed ot say it, it’s the truth.
However, after seeing Rubio speak tonight, I believe I know what’s in his heart, and that is love for America. I could see and and I could feel it. He loves freedom, and so do I.
I support Marco Rubio now. I believe he is a good man. He is a future leader, no doubt.
I have to agree.
I hat is off to Marco Rubio.
It sounded like a mistake to me; I wondered, however, if it may have been a description of the Obama regime.
Cubans are different than Mexicans, they are worlds apart in their politics and attitudes towards this country.
*My hat* >_>
Plus Rubio is a Gator.
I heard it too. Didn’t match with his point. But e is a genuinely good speaker and obviously his mouth was faster than his brain. Better an ok and obvious flub than reading corpsman as corpse man and not knowing anything was wrong, twice.
When youre 85 you can be excused from mixing things up now and then. Loved him!!
Wow, Rubio looks so much younger! They must have great plastic surgeons in FL.
There is absolutely no comparison between the two - Rubio merely accidently transposed words...and wasn't talking about an issue like rape. That is not what Akin did.
>> Wonder if he knows yet he got it backwards? No one noticed in the live thread. You hear what you want to hear.
That depends. Did he say it in Spanish?
>> That is not what Akin did.
You actually deciphered what Akin said?
Okay, so if the subject wasn’t rape, what was it?
That was a stunner. I was sure I did not mishear that.
