The gaffe machine is at it again. Joe Biden directly contradicts Obama’s stance on coal.
Obama’s stance on the subject?
Obama’s Department of Energy will enter into public private partnerships to develop five “first-of-a-kind” commercial scale coal-fired plants with clean carbon capture and sequestration technology.
Yesterday he went against Team Obama when he called his running mates ad against McCain “terrible”
And then who can forget his “Obama better not touch my guns” statement.
The guy is the gift that keeps on giving.
Politico reports on the Obama campaign’s reaction to the latest gaffe from Biden:
The Democrats are responding by essentially reiterating Obama’s stance on the issue, implying that this was merely a matter of Biden speaking out of school.
Joe Biden’s denunciation of his own campaign’s ad to Katie Couric got so much attention last night that another odd note in the interview slipped by.
He was speaking about the role of the White House in a financial crisis.
“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed,” Biden told Couric. “He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.'”
As Reason’s Jesse Walker footnotes it: “And if you owned an experimental TV set in 1929, you would have seen him. And you would have said to yourself, ‘Who is that guy? What happened to President Hoover?'”
