I’m Barack Obama, and I Approved This Message

But if it backfires on me, I’ll send Slow Joe Biden out to suggest that I didn’t.

  1. Katie Couric to Joe Biden:

    “Stop helping!”

  2. Now that I think of it, I’m going to contribute to Biden’s campaign. He should have spoken at the Republican convention.

  3. Loser. If this turd gets elected, ACORN needs some serious investigating.

  4. Don’t worry, that statement has already expired:

    A statement from Joe, released tonight by the Obama campaign:

    I was asked about an ad I’d never seen, reacting merely to press reports. As I said right then, I knew there was nothing intentionally personal in the criticism of Senator McCain’s views which look backwards not forwards and are out of touch with the new economic challenges we face today. Having now reviewed the ad, it is even more clear to me that given the disgraceful tenor of Senator McCain’s ads and their persistent falsehoods, his campaign is in no position to criticize, especially when they continue to distort Barack’s votes on an issue as personal as keeping kids safe from sexual predators.

    But the statement he made approximately 2:00 minutes into the interview hasn’t:

    In his interview with Katie Couric Biden said “When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on television and didn’t just talk about the Princes of Greed, he said look here’s what’s happened.”

  5. At Biden’s press conference, he appeared red-faced. Initial reports were that he was embarrassed by his earlier statements.

    A follow up investigation revealed, however, that he had been bitch-slapped repeatedly by both Obama and Axelrod.

  6. Gaffe-O-Matic strikes again. That “Roosevelt got on television” statement is just embarrassing (twice over; remember, not only was there only radio at the time, but the market crashed 3 years before FDR was elected POTUS). The biggest thing about his reaction to the “McCain can’t use a computer” ad is that Biden is apparently out of the loop when it comes to these things. He had not seen it before it began airing? What possible reason could the campaign have for not sharing with him everything that they are doing? so that he can have plausible deniability when the shit hits the fan? Didn’t work too well on this one, did it?

  7. Am I the only one who absolutely hates the required formulation of “I’m (insert candidate here) and I approved this message?”
