(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.
This is funny!!!!
Well, it doesn't really matter whose picture is on a button with The Fraud, Obama!! It makes larry Craig look good!
Obama is ARROGANT, CORRUPT, INEXPERIENCED and has more baggage than United Airlines!!!
This is obviously one of McCain supporters dirty campaign tactics.
maybe Obama hurt his hip in an airport restroom, hyper-extending it in some foot tapping effort.
Beauties at ease.
Look better if they had a Toilet seat for a frame. Don't aee a fat lip. Poor boy, just do some more Flip , Flops
I WANT ONE!
Obama / Craig ... a toe tapping duo. That is soooo funny.
Two peas in a pod, altho their sexual orientation isn't the same they sure look like the belong with each other.
Dumbama thought it was a compliment.
More Republican dirty work. When will these people grow up?
I know, when the other guy is leading (Obama), use cheap shots to disparage him. Perhaps you folks should be worrying about McInsane's SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE in Iraq. Clearly the surge can't identify sectarian violence and like it's biggest promoter, it doesn't understand the complexites of kurdish, Sunni, Shi'ite and other ethnic Iraqis struggle for existance.
The Republicans just don't get it. You claim to be God-fearing and Godly, yet you are always involved in evil behavior. Go figure..
That would definitely be a "change"!
The unethical smear, brainwashing and fear mongering continues among people like the McCain campaign, Hillary Clinton Supporter Chirsty Adams who is so angry to the point she is making fear mongering statements aganist President Candidate Barack Obama outrageously questioning Obama's abilities to lead even after his spectacular visit to the Middle East I really believe this woman is a closet racist because her arguments baseless,others is Sean Hannity Rush Limbaugh and others. Everytime someone make negative remarks against Obama, Obama suppoters go out and register 10 -20 new register of voters throughout the United States. Obama Nov.
Are we really asked to believe the photo of Larry Craig was a mistake?
Not many of us fell off a turnip truck...dirty politics is dirty politics. We recognize it.
I bet the Obama campaign did this on purpose, just like they released his prayer at the Western Wall. Has anybody read George Orwell's "1984" or "Animal Farm?" Didn't think so. You people have no clue what you are asking for.
Just say no to "Big Brother Obama."
Some random business trying to make money prints buttons with Obama and Larry Craig, and we're supposed to care...why?
Why is this even news?
...tap tap tap.....
Are we sure Rove hasn't returned?...
NOW let the games begin, Nasty, dirty vile tricks the the bag is opening up.
SHame , Shame shAme
I'll bet Larry Craig would love to be "with" Obama ;-)
Politics and Barack make strange bedfellows...?
They should have put B. Hussein's photo next to Jeremiah Wright's. That would be much worse than Craig.
sad thing is the conservatives will believe this as true because pins and slogans is what they go by thats why they think Bush is a patriot because he wheres a flag pin
sorry, dems–but butons were made up by dems–can't blame repubs for this one–
To Mike TX
Barack is doing a fine job of managing his campgain. Hilary didnt do so hot running up a 20million in the red?
Not only will the right wing stop at nothing to bring Obama down, but the news stations that report such triviality are part of the concern.
Yeah there needs to be an investigation and law suit.
That'd put a stop to dirty tricks like that.
