Wonder if he knows yet he got it backwards? No one noticed in the live thread. You hear what you want to hear.

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.

Only if it used as a sound bite. I heard it and felt a bit confused as it was said.

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?

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.

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”

Rubio was a vice presidential choice. Romney made a great choice with Ryan.

Was it a legitimate gaffe? If so, stage hook time, depress his polling by trashing him nonstop and withhold funding for his reelection. It's the Republican way.

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.

blessings bobo

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.

I caught the gaffe the minute he made it, and it just confirmed my low opinion of Rubio’s conservative credentials. I think that he is a RINO, and his true intentions came out, just like with his version of the DREAM ACT.

I heard it on the radio on my drive home from work.

Hope he doesn't beat himself up over it.

He's a much better public speaker than I could ever hope to be.

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.

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.

It sounded like a mistake to me; I wondered, however, if it may have been a description of the Obama regime.

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.

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.
