Hear What Joe Biden is Saying Now about Obama …” first mainstream African-American who is articulate …”
Joe Biden … open mouth and insert foot again. Are you kidding? There is a term for someone who makes these types of comments. What do you think the Main Stream Media would be saying if a Republican made the following statements? Granted, I think that both Barak Obama and John Edwards are political novices that have never done anything to make them presidential material; however, Joseph Biden’s comments toward Obama are unbelievable.
Mr. Biden is equally skeptical-albeit in a slightly more backhanded way-about Mr. Obama. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” (New York Observer)
Hear its for yourself … Audio Here.
Gee Joe … what exactly do you think of the other African-Americans? Okay, where is the outrage from the black community? How does the rest of the Democratic Black Caucus feel? You were just called inarticulate and not bright by a fellow Democrat.

Update II: Wonder what Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Carol Moseley Braun have to say about Biden’s comments? Hey Al, you can’t run according to Joe. Wasn’t it Democrats that were tired of the negative advertising in campaigns? Joe Biden right out of the shoot has gone negative against his own.
Update III: The Spin Begins, watch the video … Biden Responds to Obama ‘Clean’ Black Comment
Now that Biden has stepped in it again, the spin begins. Biden in full “this is what I really meant to say” mode. Gee Joe, if that’s what you meant to say, then why not say it in the first place. Biden still doesn’t get it. You did not insult Obama, you insulted the African-Americans that have run for office prior to Obama. Can you possibly be that dense?
