Michelle Obama Says She's 'Losing It' After Flubbing Candidate's Name Seven Times

First Lady Michelle Obama didn't have it all together when she hit the campaign trail in Iowa this weekend.

Michelle Obama flubbed U.S. Senate candidate Bruce Braley's name seven different times over the course of her 23-minute speech before the audience decided to correct her when she started referencing the non-existent website BruceBailey.com.

Braley. What did I say? I’m losing it. I’m getting old,” Mrs. Obama said in the video. “I know where I am. I know what I’m doing. That’s why we need you young people. You’ve got to help us out.”

In case you were wondering, here's a list of the seven times Michelle Obama messed up Braley's name during her speech before the audience corrected her:

1. "Thank you guys so much! I am beyond thrilled to be here today to support your next senator from Iowa, our friend, Bruce Bailey. Man, I’m so honored to be here."

2. "So I’m proud to be here for Bruce.  And, Iowa, if you want a leader who shares your values and will stand up for your families out in Washington, then you need to elect Bruce Bailey to the U.S. Senate."

3. "But I want everybody here to remember that Barack didn’t do all of that just sitting alone by himself in the Oval Office.  No, he did it because of folks like you who elected leaders in Congress and in states across this country who put families first –- leaders like Bruce Bailey."

4. "So we need to elect leaders like Bruce Bailey who will do the same."

5. "So this is the thing -- if we really get to work, just think about how many precincts all of us just in this room right now could swing for Bruce Bailey if we really rolled up our sleeves and got serious about these issues?"

6 and 7.  "And you can request a ballot by mail right here at this event, or you can go to Vote.BruceBailey.com -- that’s Vote.BruceBailey.com.  Or, even better, you can --"
