    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's final rally before Tuesday's New York primary was marked by an unfortunate slip of the tongue, as the real estate mogul mistakenly mentioned the name of a popular convenience store chain in place of 9/11. Trump was about to deliver prepared remarks lauding New York values at Buffalo's First Niagara Center Monday night when he referred to 7-Eleven. "It's very close to my heart because I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down, and I saw the...

    7/11, 9/11, it’s all the same to Donald Trump. The billionaire — who never visited the Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum in lower Manhattan until months after his campaign kicked off —seemed to have briefly forgotten the date the terrorist attack happened. “I wrote this out, and it’s very close to my heart,” he said at the First Niagara Center on Monday night during the rally. “Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve...
  • Biden: ‘President Clinton Bankrupted Chrysler’

    Another oops for Vice President Joe Biden. He’s mistakenly referred to “President Clinton” instead of “President Obama.” Biden told a crowd of 1,200 people at Lakewood High School Sunday that a Republican ad claiming Jeep will move jobs out of Ohio was “pernicious,” and a sign that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is desperate to win the state. Biden says the ad claims “President Clinton bankrupted Chrysler so that Italians could buy it to ship jobs overseas to China.” Biden recently referred to Virginia’s Democratic Senate candidate Tim Kaine as “Tom” and complained to an Ohio audience about TV ads...

    Bob Beckel got severely tongue-tied on Monday's "The Five" and "seemed to mistake" RNC chairman Reince Priebus' last name with a derogatory locker-room comment. The incident occurred when "Five" co-host Eric Bolling mentioned that President Obama dislikes presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Beckel replied "I've come to believe he is a terrible—well I won't say liar, I wont diminish myself to where Republicans or free (bleep)or prepus—"
  • Obama Gets Tongue-Tied on the Word “Superfluous” in Speech to Kennedy Center Honorees – Video

    Here is video of President Obama having trouble with the word “superfluous” as he spoke to a group of Kennedy Center Honorees. Notice he also read his script/teleprompter wrong as he began that sentence. He first read the quote as, “Too many people,” but corrected it with, “To many people…..” I could not see a teleprompter in the shot, but there could have been one in the back of the room.

    Biden riles the crowd: 'You’re the dullest audience I’ve ever spoken to' By Jordan Fabian - 10/07/10 02:48 PM ET Vice President Joe Biden got a laugh from his audience at a Wisconsin fundraising event Thursday when he tried to rile the crowd about the economic collapse of 2008. “We want to reward people who manufacture things in the United States, in Wisconsin, not to take them overseas to China and to other countries!” he said to a silent room at the event for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Tom Barrett, according to a White House pool report. He continued, saying “You’re...
  • Gaffe machine Joe Biden says he wants to strangle Republicans over budget

    Examiner.com ^ | October 6, 2010 | Marc Schenker
    Notorious Democrat gaffe machine Joe Biden (and also current vice president) says he wants to strangle Republicans who have the nerve to tell him about balancing the federal budget. Biden was blurting out at a Democrat fundraising event in Dayton, Minnesota, late yesterday when he "let slip" a desire that many would see as being beneath the office of the vice president. Biden is notorious for unloading such gaffes, and he is certainly more known—in a very disreputable light—for what he lets slip out of his mouth than for anything that he’s actually accomplished as vice president in almost two...

    The video is available at the link above. Of course the media will remain silent on this latest Reid gaffe/lie while they keep an obsessive watch on every syllable Sharron Angle utters to try to nail her on something. Reid also laughably claims that if the GOP had its way, GM and Chrysler would no longer exist. Someone ought to inform Dumbo Reid that without the illegal conversion of TARP funds into an auto bailout done by the Obama cabal they'd have been reorganized under Chapter 11 like the 3 major airlines were in the early 2000s and would have...

    CLEVELAND (AP) -- In a campaign stop for a nominee for U.S. Senate, Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that Democrats may be vulnerable in the summer but voters will look at contrasts in the fall. "This is not about the next election," Biden told about 200 people at a fundraising lunch for Democrat Lee Fisher at the Great Lakes Science Center. "This is about the next generation." Biden, noting the science center overlooking Lake Erie, also said "Republicans don't believe in science.

    New Dem Site Seeks GOP “Macaca” Moments June 29, 2010 - 11:50 AM | by: Kimberly Schwandt In a strong sign that YouTube videos and camera phones will be ever-important in this year’s election, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is launching a new program called “The Accountability Project” encouraging anyone to upload videos catching and “documenting” Republican candidates at public events. They are hoping to then point-out any “misinformation, lies and double-speak” they see from “candidates try to make misleading attacks and false claims under the radar,” the DNC said in a release announcing the project. The DNC move is...

    Vice-President Joe Biden at Kopp’s Frozen Custard in the Milwaukee area, where he was appearing with Democrat Sen. Russ Feingold. The two were eating custard there, and when Biden approached the manager with some money and asked, “What do I owe you,” the manager just responded, “Lower our taxes and we’ll call it even.”Biden later jokingly called the manager a “smart-ass,” telling him, “Why don’t you say something nice?”Biden was clearly not expecting that! Great response!

    Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, has been left red faced after mistakenly sending a birthday message to the Queen a week early. An official statement from the US foreign policy chief paid tribute to the "Queen’s life and legacy,” despite the fact that the Monarch does not celebrate her official birthday until next weekend. The diplomatic faux pas, sent on behalf of President Barack Obama and the American people on Friday, also celebrated the "special relationship" between the British and US governments.

    Um…is Harry Reid losing it? The historic Senate version of the Health Care bill passed on Christmas Eve last year, was almost derailed when the Senate Majority Leader notoriously and mistakenly voted ‘no’ before quickly changing it to yes. Getting the vote wrong on such an historic vote is a once-in-a-lifetime mistake, right? Alas, no it is not, for lightening appears have struck twice for the Nevada Senator. Or to quote an unidentified clerk picked up by a nearby microphone, “he did it again!"
