Bob Schieffer Makes 'Obama Bin Laden' Gaffe During Presidential Debate (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Bob Schieffer did what so many others have done before him during Monday night's presidential debate when he mistakenly called Osama bin Laden "Obama bin Laden."

Everyone from Keith Olbermann to local Fox anchors has mixed up the two very similar-sounding names. Schieffer just had a much, much bigger stage when he made his flub. He seemed to catch himself halfway through the question (which was about Pakistan), winding up saying "Obama's bin Laden." Obama didn't give him a hard time on it, which Schieffer probably appreciated.
