Biden denounces McCain-Palin's attacks



Tp_295661_weim_biden10_3 Joe Biden slammed Sarah Palin and John McCain for their attacks on Obama's character before a boisterous crowd at USF in Tampa.

"To have a vice presidential candidate raise the most outrageous inferences, the ones John McCain's campaign is condoning is simply wrong. ... This is beyond disappointing. This is wrong,'' said Biden making a Florida swing just on the heels of Sarah Palin's.

He called McCain "erratic" and noted that a new study shows that 100% of McCain's ads have been negative: "I guess when you vote with George W. Bush 90 percent of the time, your best hope is to attack your opponent 100 percent of the time. ... You can't call yourself a maverick when all you've ever been is a sidekick."
