Osama-Obama omissions

Mitt Romney’s coming under fire for confusing Osama bin Laden with Barack Obama:

In a slip of the tongue, Republican Mitt Romney accused Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama of urging terrorists to congregate in Iraq.

In the midst of criticizing Obama and other Democrats on foreign and economic policy Tuesday, the GOP presidential hopeful said:

“Actually, just look at what Osam—Barack Obama—said just yesterday. Barack Obama, calling on radicals, jihadists of all different types, to come together in Iraq. That is the battlefield. … It’s almost as if the Democratic contenders for president are living in fantasyland. Their idea for jihad is to retreat, and their idea for the economy is to also retreat. And in my view, both efforts are wrongheaded.”

Romney apparently was referring to an audiotape aired Monday in which a speaker believed to be terrorist Osama bin Laden called for insurgents in Iraq to unite and avoid divisions.

What’s missing from the AP dispatch on Romney’s tongue slip, which is entitled “Romney Slip: Another Osama-Obama Mix-Up,” is a reference to the last major slip-up by a politician who confused Obama and Osama. Guess who?

Hiccup.
