Biden calls McCains veiled attacks “outrageous”October 9th, 2008 - 2:41 pm ICT by ANI
Tampa (Florida), Oct.9 (ANI): Democratic vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden has termed Republican presidential candidate John McCains veiled attacks against Barack Obama as outrageous and McCain’’s strategy nothing but a distraction.
Biden also said Sarah Palins political attacks could have deeper and disturbing connotations.
These same people, theyre attacking Barack Obama in the ugliest of ways. Ladies and gentlemen, this is beyond disappointing, this is beyond disappointing. This is wrong, CBS quoted Biden, as saying.
A McCain spokesman countered Bidens statements by once again citing Obamas radical associations.
What Barack Obama and his running mate fundamentally lack is a record of making change or reform and in turn the credibility to call for it. John McCain challenged the president and advocated for the surge in Iraq that is succeeding today and has continued to fight against broken regulations, out of control government spending, and global climate change. During their combined 39 years in the U.S. Senate, Barack Obama nor his running mate have ever challenged their own party. Their run with the herd mentality, radical associations, and partisan proposals have made them the most liberal ticket in political history, said Ben Porritt.
Biden also took a couple of jabs at Palin in his speech, something that would have been unheard of running up to last weeks debate.
Last week I had a debate, at least I think it was a debate, with Governor Palin, said Biden to huge roar from the crowd of three thousand.
Palin had less than a handful of mentions in the 35-minute speech, but Biden has never before taken a mocking tone with her.
Biden said the McCain-Palin tickets negative advertising and a shift to attacking Obamas character is an attempt to get you to stop paying attention to whats going on in this country. (ANI)
