Bloggers nod Biden and his comments

Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden has further earned his nickname of “Foot-in-the-Mouth-Biden” as agreed by global bloggers.

In an interview earlier this week, Biden told journalist Katie Couric that an attack ad by the Obama Campaign was “terrible.” The statement was later retracted with Biden saying he didn’t fully review the ad.

Neocon Latina, from Colombia, writes in her blog that Biden is a “human gaffe machine” and that it simply is incomprehensible.

“Good lord. That doesn't even make sense. Biden is apparently claiming that the act of viewing his own ad somehow made him realize that McCain's ads are “disgraceful.” Yeah, that's the ticket. “Now that I've finally seen my own disgraceful ad, I've decided that your ads are … er… disgraceful.” And from that breathtakingly illogical leap, Biden declares that his own crappy ad is fine.
This is Kerry-esque, folks. Biden truly is … the gift that keeps on giving.”

While, Michael van der Galien of the Netherlands, writes in PoliGazette that Senator Biden has made contradictory comments before, thus hurting the Democratic campaign.

“It’s not the first time that Biden says something contradictory to Obama’s official policy. The ad, about which Biden was honest calling it “terrible,” was also an issue on which Biden broke with Obama. Of course, on this subject too Biden was forced to take back his words.

What this makes clear is that Biden is not as reliable as Obama hoped. He either doesn’t seem to know what their policies are supposed to be, or he doesn’t care. In either case, Biden probably causes Obama and his main advisers to take a painkiller every night before going to bed. These gaffes may very well hurt Obama’s chances in key battle groundstates such as Pennsylvania.”

And an American Puma in Italy writes in her blog that Obama knew what he was getting into.

“Well, Obama should have known what he was getting into when he selected Joe *speaks his mind* Biden.”

She ends her post with a message to Democrats:

“To Democrats who worry about whether their nominee is willing to do whatever it takes to win: You can calm down.”
