No one will ever mistake Gov. Jan Brewer for a great orator.
But her blunder Wednesday during a live television interview with a cable network from the floor of the Republican National Convention in Tampa left some speechless.
Brewer accidentally threw her support behind President Barack Obama, just months after she put her pointer-finger in his face during a heated exchange on the tarmac of a Mesa airport.
A reporter asked Brewer, an immigration hardliner, if she's had conversations with GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney about border and immigration issues.
She responded, "I believe that Governor Romney understands the issues, certainly being a former governor, he understands states rights, he understands that as governors we have to govern," she said before the gaffe.
"And I know that if President Obama is elected in November, which I hope that he is, that he will be able to come together with all of us and come up with a solution and I believe he will secure our borders and therefore we can resolve all those other issues, it's a simple matter," Brewer said.
