Romney introduces Paul Ryan as 'next President of the United States'

Mitt Romney announced his choice as running mate, Paul Ryan, as "the next president of the United States" during an event at the USS Wisconsin exhibit in Norfolk, Va., on Saturday morning.


Ryan, (R-Wis.), of course, would be vice president. And Romney, alerted to his gaffe, quickly corrected himself before Ryan could get rolling on his acceptance speech.


"Every now and then I'm known to make a mistake," Romney said to a delighted crowd. "I did not make a mistake with this guy. But I can tell you this . . . he's gonna be the next vice president of the United States."


Romney and his new vice presidential pick are embarking on a tour of battleground states after the morning announcement.

Obama did the same thing when he first introduced Biden in 2008. Called him 'President Biden'. Now that is a very scary thought!

Mit-Wit was right Paul Ryan should be running for president. I bet Ryan would be glad to show all his past tax returns.
