Joe Biden Speaks: What Is He Saying (And Thinking)?

Sen. Joe Biden might want to sit in on a few meetings with the Obama campaign staff before going out and making anymore statements in the name of Barack Obama. Two of his most recent quotes show exactly why.

On the recent attack ad that Barack Obama put out against John McCain, TownHall reports this:

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.”

Later, Biden backtracked when he discovered the Barack Obama had seen the ad and approved of it.

On “Clean Coal” power plants, The Politco has this to say:

Some great rope line video from Joe Biden’s recent Ohio swing, where he was asked by an anti-pollution campaigner about clean coal — a controversial approach in Democratic circles for which Obama has voiced support, particularly during the Kentucky primary.

Biden’s apparent answer: He supports clean coal for China, but not for the United States.

“No coal plants here in America,” he said. “Build them, if they’re going to build them, over there. Make them clean.”

“We’re not supporting clean coal,” he said of himself and Obama. They do, on paper, support clean coal.

Unless Barack Obama has switched his position and is now against clean coal. This statement shows that the Obama campaign is not really for any kind of real domestic energy production.
