Scroll for updates…3:03pm Eastern Obama takes the stage in Springfield IL as U2′s “Oh, You Look So Beautiful” plays…so humble…Obama: “Joe Biden is that rare mix. He has brought change to Washington, but Washington hasn’t changed him…He’s stared down dictators…He is uniquely suited to be my partner as we work to put our country back on track…He is one of the finest public servants of our time.” Obama touts Biden’s blue-collar background, Catholic background, his stutter, his family tragedy (the car accident that killed his wife and daughter), brain aneurysm…(Obama neglects to mention his two losing presidential bids)…Biden will deliver “straight talk.” Heh. That’s the danger, isn’t it?
And now, let me introduce to you…snort: First gaffe of Obama-Biden ’08!
He said he “wasn’t the guy.” Starting his VP candidacy off with a lie.
Let the fun begin.
The Springfield, IL announcement takes place at 3pm EST. Video clips and any gaffes from the gaffe-tastic duo will be here.
The McCain camp was ready.
Oh, and so much for the Magic Text Message, which, as Ed Morrissey points out, arrived at 4:50am Eastern. Now, we know what the text message sign-up was really about. Not about being all-inclusive and galvanizing the hip kids with cool technology. It’s a mega-fund-raising call list, as commenter Gwillie points out.
Flashback 2006: “The only thing standing between Joe Biden and the presidency is his mouth.”
