Biden: Gaffe or Being Honest?Posted: September 23, 2008
Every one who knows Senator Joe Biden knows he has a tendency to talk a lot and not always with his political brain attached to his vocal chords. It shouldn’t be all that surprising to the Obama folks and their uberly scripted Presidential candidate that they would not be able to put a muzzle or a message collar on Biden. Senator Biden gave an opinion the other day on a tasteless Obama attack ad. It was the one that showed McCain as old, crotchety and unable to use Internet. What the Obama campaign failed to find out was that McCain doesn’t use a PC because of his war injuries that limit the flexibility and use of his arms. Senator McCain usually has some one operate the machines for him. This some one is usually wife Cindy.
After that exposure, the Obama attack ad came off as petty, uninformed, and insensitive to the disabled. Biden called it like it was–not the best of moves on the part of the Obama/Biden campaign and something that he wouldn’t have done if he’d have called the shots. This so-called gaffe is different than some of the doozies that have given him ink and news time (see below). I don’t think this was a gaffe. I actually think he was just being honest. The ad was a low blow and some one with knowledge and credibility wouldn’t have run it. Guess we’ll see how the press spins it shortly. Anyway, love this YouTube offering and I thought I’d share it too… it’s a Gaffe contest between Biden and Obama. I thought I’d put it here rather than post it to the huge content I have on the Gaffe and flip-flop patrol page. I can’t wait for the debates. I’m expecting so many actual gaffes that I’ll be busy posting them throughout the next couple of weeks.
