I know I'm a shrink and see Freudian slips everywhere. But Fox News caught it too. Romney introduced Paul Ryan as the next President of the United States. Not the Vice President. The President.

Is is just me, or does this mean that Mitt looks to Paul Ryan because he doesn't have a budget plan of his own? Or is it just a slip....weird at that ... you being the boss and mistaken the other guy for the one in charge? Or is "Vice President" just a harder thing to say.
Hahaha! I think someone did that when introducing Joe Biden too!
Perhaps he forgot to say, "After me." Ryan will likely be the GOP Presidential nominee after Romney's 2 terms. Nothing succeeds like success and the economy will bounce so much higher than liberals can possibly imagine, once the weight of Obama's foolishness is stripped from it. 8 years of Romney and 8 years of Ryan and then 8 years of Rubio will finally remove the stupid legacy of the disastrous LBJ/FDR proto-socialist government.
Interesting line up.
I would have preferred Rubio right now, perhaps because I lived in Little Mexico (SoCal). I do not see the jobs issue improving under Romney or Obama, not in the short term. They system is stacked against creating jobs because people with capital can make tremendous money simply by putting it into the Chinese or Brazil stock. Or, hedgeing against America.
Rubio has insisted that he is not going anywhere and being Cubano, I would bet he is stubborn enough to make that stick. He is a clear and articulate advocate of the same political philosophy as Ryan.
Rubio comes across as a nice guy, the nicest person to come up so far in the 2012 presidential election.
I definitely think there's some "slipping" going on there. When someone's on the line for the most important position in the world, I'll bet he/she has some dreams at night (which we will never hear about), where the candidate either calls for "Mommy" or utters the phrase, "Calgon, take me away." Romney really wants to turn the whole shebang over to Ryan, on a subconscious level. Who, for god's sake, really, really wants that responsibility?
What makes this thing so totally human is that both Obama and Romney did it. Point proved.
They got to that point on 60 minutes, turning the election over to a decision for or against Ryan's budget. Taking the heat off Romney, who has not explained his in any detail.
Presidents set priorities and can submit budgets but all budgets must originate in the House of Representatives, not the White House. Romney has a (too) detailed plan.

As for budgets that have been turned down because they did not satisfy Democrats - Obama is Zero for Four. Every budget he has submitted has failed to garner sufficient votes, even when Democrats had a filibuster proof majority in the Senate.
2012 - 99 - 0 in the Senate, 414 - 0 in the House

2011 - 97 - 0 in the Senate - Paul Ryan's Budget Proposal got 40 votes (even Ron Paul had some votes for his)

2010 - again a failure - I think we are seeing a pattern
Yeah, it happens.
Both sides will call each other out on it, ironically.

Here's another little Freudian slip, this one from Ryan:
"Well, regrettably, President Obama has become part of the problem and Mitt Romney is the solution."
Romney the solution? That is, indeed, regrettable!
Later in his speech Ryan talks about how you can succeed in America if you "work hard and play by the rules."
That one's a big RFLMAO!
