    Biden says mocking McCain was "terrible"

    36 minutes ago

    WASHINGTON - Barack Obama's running mate says a campaign ad that mocked Republican presidential candidate John McCain as an out-of-touch, out-of-date computer illiterate was "terrible" and would not have been done had he known about it.

    Obama, McCain's Democratic rival, launched the ad earlier this month, part of an aggressive push to slow McCain's rise in the polls after he chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate. It included unflattering footage of Sen. McCain at a hearing in the early '80s, wearing giant glasses and an out-of-style suit, interspersed with shots of a disco ball, a clunky phone, an outdated computer and a Rubik's Cube
    Asked about the negative tone of the campaign, and this ad in particular, during an interview broadcast Monday by the "CBS Evening News," Obama's running mate, Sen. Joe Biden, said he disapproved of it.

    "I thought that was terrible, by the way," Biden said.

    Asked why it was done, he said: "I didn't know we did it and if I had anything to do with it, we'd have never done it."

    This gets better and better. Some how I can see a three gun showdown between Obama, Hillary and Biden like at the end of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.

    He said it was terrible and that he wouldn't have approved it.

    HE CHANGED HIS MIND THIS MORNING - and put out a statement saying (paraphrase) ... I hadn't seen the ad when I answered (so I didn't know what I was talking about when I spoke) and also John McCain has put out ads I don't like so he can't complain.

    Seriously - that's pretty much what he said.

    CHANGED HIS MIND (or the Chicago Mobsters who are running this thing changed it for him)

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Bullshit. He didn't change his mind. The Obamessiah's spin doctors got on the case and changed his mind for him.

    When I saw this I assumed this was Obama's exit strategy for Biden from the ticket. How many goofs does he have to make in order to give Obama cover for dumping him?
