    What's your favorite politician blunder/misspeak/"oopsy" moment??

    While reading an article about Romney and backlash from his "not concerned about the poor" statement I saw this gem:

    Vice President Joe Biden chimed in with a fresh, albeit minor, flub on Monday when he misspoke during an appearance in Tallahassee, Fla., and declared that he and President Barack Obama "refuse to accept the notion that the United States' best days are ahead of us."
    I know Biden probably didn't mean what he said, but I think it's pretty darned funny. So what's your favorite "" moment?

    For those who rag on Bachmann, well, at least she didn't say there were 57 states while campaigning.

    No, she just said that vaccines (specifically Gardisil) cause mental retardation. That's a lot more dangerous than incorrectly citing the number of states in the union.

    While that may be true, both gaffes are incredibly stupid. What child in "quality" public-schooling doesn't know there are currently 50 states? When a would-be president says there are 57 states, well, how incredible is that?

    There's a difference between the two gaffes. For one, Bachmann intentionally and willfully distributed incorrect information about vaccinations in her attempt to distance herself from another candidate. She made the statement as a political move. Secondly, Obama didn't use the statement about the states as a political move. He was responding to a question about the campaign trail and, most likely, meant "57 total venues in specific regions", not "57 states". Obama is a jack ass to the nth degree, but he isn't stupid.

    And even if he were, I'd take math-stupid over panick-insighting liar any day.

    A man I'm proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States - Barack America. - Biden

    Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs. - Biden

    When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened- Biden.

    Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me. - Biden
