    Obama Chides Biden for Off-Message Interview - America’s Election HQ



    Barack Obama and Joe Biden stepped out of sync again Tuesday, as the Democratic presidential nominee criticized his running mate for voicing opposition to the government bailout of American International Group early last week.

    It was the second off-message moment for the Democratic team in two days. Biden had to ratchet back his own rhetoric Monday after an interview aired in which he called one of his own campaign ads “terrible.”

    The lack of harmony suggests the Obama team, for months a rancor-free institution, is running into the kind of message discipline problems that John McCain’s campaign faced before he started to cut back his interaction with reporters.

    In the last 3 days those two have been countering each other as much as they've gone after McCain.

    Check my sig. :)

    He also said Obama "wasn't ready, but could be." And then backed up that statement a second time during a debate. :)

    The press can't report anything negative about Obama without getting in a dig at McCain can they? No bias there!

    Joe Biden has been around for a very long time & knows John McCain--in fact he likes him alot.

    The typewriter--no computer skills add was a little over the top. Anyone who has ever watched John McCain understands that it would be very painful for him to sit at a typewriter--due to the torture he sustained in Viet Nam. Arms tied behind back & then lifted up until they both broke.

    Why should a President need these skills. That is what interns are for. Did Obama approve such a message because i don't see how that relates to being president.
