GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley for Obama? (For an Instant)

A day after Vice President Joe Biden was glad to be in Iowa, aka Ohio, Iowa's Republican U.S. Senator accidentally "endorses" President Obama.

Among the politicians standing Friday with were Rep. Steve King, who recently linked immigrants to dogs, and Sen. Chuck

As they each approached the microphone to speak to a couple of thousand people, who might regret their words first?

The "winner" on this day, if only for a moment, was Grassley.

“We will put America on a new path to a new day with a new President Obama,” Grassley intoned.


Grassley caught himself. 

“A new president Obama?" he asked nobody in particular. "Pardon me I want to forget that word.”

Things must be getting tiring on the campaign trail. On Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden called out Romney to Iowa voters.

“I mean literally, ladies and gentlemen, this is the guy who’s running all the ads here in Iowa saying he’s going to get tough on China,” Biden said.

Only problem: Biden was in Ohio.

Max, didn't you mean Bill was a boner rather than a bonus? ;-)

OMG Joe you are hilarious! Yeah I think I was temporarily insane when I said that, although I remember the economy being pretty decent when he was president. But I have to admitt that I wasn't into politics then, I was too busy raising my family.

Max: What the dems do not realize about the economy of he 1990's is that that was the tech era of the growth of the internet and related computer hardware...combined with the republican takeover inthe House which force Clinton to compromise on the budget balancing deal . Of course, Bill was a very slippery pol compared to a rigid ideologue like obama.
