Joe Biden racks up four quote mishaps in a week

Biden criticizing Obama ad
“I thought that [ad] was terrible by the way.I didn’t know we did it and if I had anything to do with it, we would have never done it”

Biden on Taxes
“It’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”

Biden on not having coal
“No coal plants here in America,” he said. Build them, if they’re going to build them, over there [China]. Make them clean.”

MSNBC quote regarding Biden AIG gaff
Lauer pointed out, scarcely three minutes after McCain said he opposed the AIG bailout last week, “in an interview with Meredith Vieira, Joe Biden, your running mate was asked the exact same question, ‘should the federal government bailout AIG?’ And he said, ‘No, the federal government should not bailout AIG.'” (As we noted at the time.) “And I think that in that situation,” Obama said, “I think Joe should have waited as well.”

    “And I think that in that situation,” Obama said, “I think Joe should have waited as well.” Waited for what? You to tell him what he believes? Great idea from old Smokey (Obamas new nick name).

    4 gaffs for Biden in one week, 2 of which disagree with his running mate won’t even be a record by the time this election is over.

    On the DNC side ” Sarah Palin’s town charge rape victims for testing ” Wow, that a slam dunk! Talk about manufacturing critisism, lol! That one is embarrassing!

    At least Biden actually talks to the press and answers questions. He is not in hiding. But then again, maybe he should be.

    Joe Biden might have spoken up along time ago on AIG since AIG has 740 Corporations domiciled in his State of Delaware due to their tax haven. His State Insurance Commissioner new of their problems and DID NOTHING, and JOE didn’t KNOW?
