On Monday, good ole' Joe was at it again. He is the gift that keeps on giving. But as the old saying goes, even a broken clock is right twice a day.
While talking to Katie Couric of CBSNews about the tenor of the campaign, Biden let loose on the Obama campaign and in turn on Obama himself. Couric specifically asked Biden about his thoughts on the ad making fun of Senator John McCain as old & technologically inept. The ad mocks John McCain for admitting that he didn't use a computer.
Obama has yet to appologize for the ad after realizing that McCain doesn't use a computer since McCain can't lift his arms to type without pain due to war wounds. In the interview with Couric, Biden admitted that he:
"thought that was terrible - by the way."
Couric went on to ask Biden about the campaign's production & decision to release the ad:
"Why'd you do it then?"
Biden's response was:
"I didn't know we did it & if I'd had known that we did it we'd have never done it. And I don' think that Barack - you know - I just think that was a..."
Then Couric interceded by asking:
"Did Barack Obama approve that ad? He said he did, right?"
Well, Obama has to be very happy about this. Biden goes way off message & shows that Biden is completely aloof as to how the campaign that he is on is being run.
In this, Biden goes even further by implying that either Obama is also completely unaware of how his campaign is being ran or that Obama is basically heartless for not realizing the the damage caused by this ad. Either way, it doesn't imply very good things about Obama.
