While the likes of Sen. John McCain and his former running mate Sarah Palin have been toying with idea of President Barack Obama replacing Vice President Joe Biden with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, others are enjoying the recent gaffe fervor. Namely, American Crossroads. In a new ad, the Republican-affiliated super PAC chronicles and mocks some of Biden’s past slipups and controversies — arguing that Biden should stay on the ticket.
The ad, which has a humorous touch and is entitled “Run, Joe. Run,” begins by citing the necessity for “disciplined leadership” and “a vice president Americans can count on.” Then cuts to Biden’s flaps, the first one being him stating, “a three-letter word. Jobs. J-O-B-S.”
Afterward, of course, the recent “going to put y’all back in chains” remark makes an appearance, followed by some comments about government spending and not being able to go to a 7-Eleven or Dunkin Donuts without a “slight Indian accent” — among a few others.
After the nice walk down memory lane, the ad notes that some have been saying Biden should go, but “we say Joe should stay.” As the voiceover declares, “Joe Biden. America’s greatest vice president — when we need him most,” the text in the ad reads, “Keep running, Joe. Please, keep running.”
