Freudian Slip: Candy Crowley Calls Him 'President Romney'

CNN's Candy Crowley got a tremendous amount of criticism last month when she defended Barack Obama during the second presidential debate.

On Sunday's State of the Union, she appeared to compensate by saying "President Romney" in a question to Ohio's Rob Portman (video follows with transcript and commentary):

CANDY CROWLEY, HOST: You have in Ohio a jobless rate that is better than the nationwide jobless rate, and you have an auto bailout that the President put in place that's highly popular. What is it in this state that makes you think that President Romney, uh, sorry, Governor Romney can overcome those particular statistics and the feel of the voters?

SENATOR ROB PORTMAN (R-OHIO): I like your Freudian slip on President Romney. That sounded good.

CROWLEY: [Laughs]

Coming two days before Election Day, that's REALLY entertainment.
