It seems that Axelrod/Obama's obvious decision to put all of the Black leaders/surrogates in the background and tuck them away in a closet, is proving not to have been a good judgement call after all. People in African American communities are looking... and wondering why Reverends Jackson, Sharpton, Congressman Maxine Waters, and civil rights icon John Lewis... and now even Michelle Obama have noticeably been hid away and kept in abeyance this historic election period. If the fear is that these prominent African Americans may make gaffes or "embarrass" Obama... causing him to lose the White vote... well the Biden/Clinton team are masterfully doing that job...hands down!
Make no mistake about it, Biden/Clinton team are killing Obama's presidential bid among Independents, Whites and women, in addition to successfully unmasking and proving faulty his 'excellent judgement' creds.
Every day that Biden remains on this ticket, and Bill Clinton openly campaigns and does television interviews, Obama loses. Take for instance this recent Biden gaffe:
Joe Biden said in an interview that he thought one of his campaign's own ads was "terrible" and hadn't known about it in advance.And here is yet another Biden blunder, where he contradicts Obama's energy platform:
Asked by CBS's Katie Couric about an ad Obama released earlier this month mocking John McCain for not being able to use a computer, Biden criticized the commercial and suggested it had been aired without his knowledge.
"I thought that was terrible by the way. I didn't know we did it and if I had anything to do with it, we would have never done it." Biden said.
"Biden, during a recent encounter on an Ohio rope line said: He supports clean coal for China, but not for the United States.Then there is Bill Cinton, who is out on the front line making the national television rounds overtly, and justifiably praising Presidential nominee McCain for his impeccable war record, and leadership down through the years as a maverick and an stalwart example of bipartisan statesmanship. In true Clintonesque fashion, he puts in context Hillary's position on not being selected Obama's Veep:
"No coal plants here in America, he said. Build them, if they're going to build them, over there. Make them clean. We’re not supporting clean coal," he said of himself and Obama. But... they do, on paper, support clean coal.
"Hillary (Clinton) never wanted to be vice president. "Not really, no... she didn't," Clinton said on "The View" when asked if Hillary really wanted to be VP. But she would have agreed to run as Barack Obama's ticketmate had Obama ever asked, Clinton said.With fence sitters, and undecideds predicted to be the deciding factors in this year's race, McCain may only have to continually replay Biden/Clinton team words to the voting public for the next 40 days, and be a shoo-in come November 5th!
