GAFFE-PRONE BIDEN STRIKES AGAIN: CALLS MITT ‘PRESIDENT ROMNEY’ AND OBAMA ‘PRESIDENT CLINTON’

It’s almost become expected at this point. In the nearly four years he’s been in office, Vice President Joe Biden has awed the country with his gaffes (see herehere, and here, just to name a few). And on Sunday, he struck again.

During an interview with David Gregory on “Meet The Press,” Biden’s mind seemed otherwise occupied when it came to consistently and correctly referring to who he was talking about. For example, at one point, and much to the joy of Republicans, he referred to Mitt Romney as “President Romney.” But as if that wasn’t embarrassing enough, he couldn‘t seem to keep his own boss’s name straight: he also referred to Barack Obama as “President Clinton.” The Washington Free Beacon noticed it all:


You can watch the entire interview, which was pre-taped on Friday, below:

Those mistakes come after Biden sent ripples through Washington with other comments during the same interview. He also told Gregory that he is “absolutely” okay with same-sex marriage, prompting Biden‘s office to scramble with a statement saying those words represent Biden’s personal views and not those of the administration.

I love good ol' Joe!!!!

In this day when every single word a politician says is recorded and analized, all of them make a gaff at some point.  Joe B just seems to have a knack for doing it better than most.

Gay Marriage statement by Biden...I don't think that was a gaffe.  I think it was a nugget to the gay marriage contingent of voters.

Is he sick, or is this a concern for his mental state?

... you know I listened to his statement on this and he was really hedging it, still not a real committal from him.

This "Meet the Press" was NOT a good interview for him.. He sure struggled.

His mental state. I think he had a brain aneurysm removed before.

I know one of the signs of stoke is confusion and mixing words around.  I hope he's ok.  I may laugh at his gaffs, but certainly don't want him to be in bad health.
