Barack Obama's Buyers Remorse Increases with Every Gaffe Biden Commits

Barack Obama tells running mate Joe Biden to keep quiet

Tuesday, September 23rd 2008, 9:44 PM

WASHINGTON - Barack Obama slapped his loose-lipped running mate Tuesday, chastising Joe Biden for speaking too fast and contradicting him on one of the massive financial bailouts.

Biden, a Delaware senator, declared last week the federal government should not have floated the American International Group an $85 billion lifeline.

Obama said the feds had no choice and hit John McCain for opposing the AIG rescue one day, then backing it the next.

Tuesday, Obama had to deal with fallout from Biden doing a similar dipsy-doodle, first denouncing then agreeing with McCain.

"I think that, in that situation, I think Joe should have waited as well," Obama said on NBC's "Today" show.

Still, Obama defended his pick of Biden over Hillary Clinton.

"I am a great admirer of Sen. Clinton's," Obama said on NBC. "Joe Biden is also an outstanding public servant, and I am very proud of the choice that I made."

The GOP reveled in Biden's bobbles, sending out a list of recent alleged missteps.

"Joe Biden's bizarre comments underscore the lack of decisiveness and leadership represented at the top of the ticket," said Republican National Committee spokesman Danny Diaz, contending that Obama's "lack of experience and accomplishment is reflected in the confused comments by his running mate."

If this ticket was flipped I would vote for Joe Biden. The Obama campaign is so green they don't get it that you can't get elected with a sliver of the Democrat Party. They chose Joseph Biden to bring in the blue color vote so let him. That is what he was put on the ticket to do. It isn't Biden that is wrong it is the Obama rhetoric they don't get his base is going to vote for him anyway and that he needs to move to the Middle where Biden already is. Too Bad, Joseph Biden is a descent intelligent man and he deserves better treatment I am not suprized how he is being treated.
