Asked about the John-McCain-is-old ad put up by the Obama campaign, Barack Obama’s running mate said:
“I thought that was terrible, by the way.”
Asked why it was done, he [Biden] said: “I didn’t know we did it and if I had anything to do with it, we’d have never done it.”
Late Monday, Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton issued a statement from Biden. In it, Biden said he “was asked about an ad I’d never seen” and was “reacting merely to press reports.”
That’s an awfully strong opinion for an ad he’s never seen.
