Joe Biden Says Ad That Mocked McCain Was ‘Terrible’

From Newsmax,

Barack Obama’s running mate says a campaign ad that mocked Republican presidential candidate John McCain as an out-of-touch, out-of-date computer illiterate was “terrible” and would not have been done had he known about it.

 Obama, McCain’s Democratic rival, launched the ad earlier this month, part of an aggressive push to slow McCain’s rise in the polls after he chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate. It included unflattering footage of Sen. McCain at a hearing in the early ’80s, wearing giant glasses and an out-of-style suit, interspersed with shots of a disco ball, a clunky phone, an outdated computer and a Rubik’s Cube.

 “He admits he still doesn’t know how to use a computer, can’t send an e-mail, still doesn’t understand the economy, and favors $200 billion in new tax cuts for corporations, but almost nothing for the middle class,” the ad says.

 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.”

Joe Biden decided to be a man and admit that the Obama Ad that mocked McCain’s war wounds was terrible. And for that at this moment I feel a newly found respect for him. I just wish Obama would have as much good taste as his running mate.
