(CNN) – Barack Obama likes to stress his willingness to work across party lines, but Republican Sen. Larry Craig probably isn't the Illinois senator's top choice when it comes to showcasing his bipartisan credentials.
But campaign buttons mistakenly featuring those two politicians surfaced over the weekend under the Obama campaign's motto "Change You Can Believe In," according to CNN Idaho affiliate KPVI.
The buttons, created by an Ohio-based company called Tigereye Design, was supposed to feature Obama alongside the Democratic Senate candidate in Idaho, Larry LaRocco. A retired editor for the Lewiston Tribune noticed the mistaken buttons and printed them in Sunday's edition.
LaRocco's campaign says the buttons weren't ordered by them, but rather a commercial firm that sells campaign memorabilia.
Craig, who was arrested last year for allegedly soliciting sex in an airport men's room, is not running for reelection.
America's brain washing continues sponsored by Fox News, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and America's Right Wing Public Radio.
The majority of American people do not know how to investigate and learn for there own insight. Everything that the media outlets listed above presents to America it must be gospel. If Fox News said Obama was Japanese 55% of the American people would believe it.
Further, if you ask them how do they know that? They would say I read on the internet or I heard it on Fox News. Those people are so closed minded they refuse to listen to another view point. Fox News wants to demonize Obama as someone evil and out of touch with America and someone who is un-patriotic. So of course; a lot of Americans just follow along with the crowd and say, OK, Dah, Ok.
Thank God some Americans will at least give this man a fair chance to make his case for the presidency of the United States of America.
what a convenient mistake
A true repubulican trick. They will resort to anything to continue and try and undermine the good that Barack is. Fortunately, GOD, a higher force, the universe, whatever you want to call it has the last word in all things so it truly does not matter.
Pretty dirty. I would sue.
A third party company makes a mistake on something not ordered by the campaign or affiliated with the campaign in any way and yet you can cue the 'this proves obama cannot lead' bashing comments in three... two... one...
This is histerical!
OMG!! Is there no length people won't go to just to bring this man down. I am so disgusted!!
Just another stinking dirty trick.
Isn't it funny how all of the 'bad' accidental things just 'happen' to be against Obama....
Republicans have no decency.
These will be a collector's item. DO WANT
Strange bedfellows, indeed. Michelle, you need to keep better tabs on Barack's whereabouts at night.
Does Michelle know?
This is why good editing and quality control is so important. Ohio-based company, huh...
It is the republicans spies that did it.
The people are not going to be fooled this year. No more repubs this time around. Not after the last 8 years.
Hmmm, Is the guys who makes the buttons Republican. Nothing is beneath these people to take down Obama anyway they can.
Obama can't even manage his campaign. The joke continues....
He better put Hillary's photo next to him in that buttom, else he will not win in Nov. I know the Obamanuts will start their nasty, derogatory and mean-spirited comments; simply because we, Hillary supporters will not support their candidate unless she is on the ticket.
Just how niave does the McCain and the republican party think we are? This was no mistake – just more of the low level campaigning thats become a trademark of McCain, Bush and their pals in the republican party.
Just reinforces my earlier decision during the primaries to leave the republican party after 42 years and embrace the democrats!
This is beyond funny. Larry Craig a pediphile republican, who play with men in public restrooms. The issue with republicans is that they klive in a moral world, where they get sucked in by their own lies.
CHANGE is realizing that we have choices, that we can listen to the lies or we can seek, truth and find reasoning. We as citizens of America and citizens of the world have now opened our "thrid eye" we have been blinded for too long by the "kniowledge" that the others have been feeding us. The CHANGE we seek is to replace the prism of knoledge with the TRUTH, the LIGHT is there for us all to grasp. OBAMA and Clinton knows that we will not be able to do it alone, it is time to end politics in Washington as usual, OBAMA-RICHARDSON, OBAMA-CLINTON, OBAMA-HAGEL, OBABA-CHANGE-TRUTH-HOPE-LOVE!
IT IS TIME TO TEAR DOWN THE WALLS OF FEAR, LIES, POVERTY, HATE, RACISM, SEXISM, TEAR DOWN THE WALL, OBAMA 2008!
Which guy is on the down low?
Trying to affiliate Obama with a sex soliciting republican...Next!
Keep em coming republicans, its not going to work.
I bet if you dig deep enough, you'll find a republican at the other end who thought this would be a way to slander the Obama campaign. I don't buy that this is any kind of mistake.
It fits totally into the tactics used by Rove republicans. Slimy, underhanded and contemptuous of the American public.
Criminals, all of them.
Don't they have quality testers before final printing.
This is not the picture or LaRocco.
LOL! OK, I'm an Obama supporter, but that's pretty funny.
I'm a supporter of Senator Obama
Too bad he was pictured with the known sex offender on a political button. And at the same time, worse things have happened.
