Video: McCain Praises Obama, Means Romney

Former GOP nominee John McCain was in Charleston campaigning with the former Massachusetts governor.

At the end of today's otherwise typical Charleston rally also starring Gov. Nikki Haley and GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney, a slip for former GOP nominee John McCain made for the most interesting moment.

Speaking to the crowd of several hundred gathered just two weeks before the South Carolina primary, McCain said:

"I am confident, with the leadership and the backing of the American people, President Obama will turn this country around."

He meant, of course, that presidential hopeful Mitt Romney could turn things around.

Haley, Romney and the crowd quickly corrected him.

"President Romney. President Romney. President Romney," he growled.

(Reuters) - U.S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's tax plan would cut revenues and increase the government's budget deficit, while benefiting wealthy taxpayers more than others, said a report from a non-partisan think tank released on Thursday.

That was not a mistake, it was McCain that won the election for Obama.

McCain kind of reminds me of Ted Kennedy when he started getting a little senile toward the end of his senate career. McCain should be admired for his heroism during Vietnam war as a pow, but his political career has come and gone and he should step aside. Do I want to vote for the republican candidate who couldn't beat McCain, who, then , in turn, couldn't beat Obama ? I think not

That is why Romney will not be the Republican nominee

Sen. McCain's military service is admirable. He's a true hero. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about his tenure as a Senator.

Does this sound familiar? - Keating 5 Scandal. - Expressed disdain for judges who "wore their conservatism on their sleeve". - Led McCain-Feingold assault on the 1st Amendment giving George Soros and MoveOn.org tremendous political clout. - Supported amnesty for illegal aliens. - McCain-Lieberman liberal tree hugger legislation. - Opposed gay marriage ban. - Originally opposed Bush tax cuts on a class warfare argument. - Support of 2nd Amendment currently rated C- by Gun Owners of America after being in the A-/A+ range for years. - Publicly expressed disdain for "profits". - Doesn't understand trivial economic principles and the harm of government interference in the marketplace. - Opposed military action against Iraq and publicly trashed Rumsfeld. - Politically positioned himself to take either side on the outcome in Iraq. - Considers waterboarding "torture" and opposes harsh questioning of unlawful combatants. - Wants to close Guantanamo and grant unlawful combatants civil rights. - Didn't reject joining John Kerry's ticket as the VP in 2004. - Publicly stated, "Hillary Clinton would make a good president". - One of the leaders of the Gang of 14. - Often votes with liberals on key conservative initiatives. - Used to be humble about his commendable military record. Now wears it on his sleeve. - Very vindictive with an explosive temper.

RepubliCONs selected McCain as their nominee for president and gave us eight years of the TARP infecting Bush, better known as Mr. Great Recession. Now they want us to have confidence in their selection of Romney?
