The Connecticut senator with a 50+ unfavorable rating, a sweetheart mortgage problem, and a challenger who is leading in the polls, probably didn't need this from the president. Washington Times reporter Christina Bellantoni reports, via her Twitter account:

Obama accidentally calls his one-time rival "Rep. Dodd" @ Rose Garden event. Dodd responds, "Things are tough enough!"

Cue the Rob Simmons web ad any minute now.

Oh, dear. Chris will be so ashamed, he'll have to run off to his Irish "cottage" to pout.
