I did not see the show so this is pure speculation on my part but I would wager they were probably discussing Romney a lot during the show and the host simply goofed. Cspan has been the most fair to us of anyone so I am willing to give the benefit of the doubt and assume that this was a simple case of human error.
"Governor, if I had foreseen the use those people
designed to make of their victory,
there would have been no surrender at
Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me.
Had I foreseen these results of subjugation,
I would have preferred to die at Appomattox
with my brave men, my sword in my right hand." - Robert E. Lee to Governor Fletcher S. Stockdale (D-Texas), 1870
If notified about this, CSPAN will correct this error on air.
People make mistakes. Give him a break. Sounded honest, he just read it wrong.
If you constantly want to make yourself a victim it's not hard.
This video is not blatant at all. If they were making a purposeful decision they would have picked out a pro-Romney tweet. That's called a slip of the tongue and everyone does it.
Ron Paul: "For those who have asked, I freely confess that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, and that I seek His guidance in all that I do."
Guy posts a pro Ron Paul tweet on CSPAN web site.
"Hey America if you want a candidate with viable plans who will not flip flop you will support and vote for Ron Paul"
CSPAN newscaster reads the tweet on the air and changes Ron Paul to Mitt Romney.
Video of this actually occurring here
"For if you [the rulers] suffer your people to be ill-educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make thieves [and outlaws] and then punish them."
