Biden calls Jeep ad 'pernicious,' slips and refers to Obama as 'Clinton'
By JENNIFER EPSTEIN | 11/4/12 12:50 PM EST
The Romney campaign's Jeep ad is "pernicious," Vice President Joe Biden said Sunday just outside Cleveland, though he slipped and suggested that it was "President Clinton" who the Republicans were blaming.
"I think it is pernicious," Biden told a crowd of 1,100 in the gym at Lakewood High School, before continuing on to describe the ad, but with the mistake of referring to President Obama as his Democratic predecessor. "That ad you've seen that says President Clinton bankrupted Chrysler so that Italians could buy it to ship jobs overseas to China, Jeep jobs,"
Clinton might've been on Biden's mind Sunday, since the vice president took the stage minutes after Obama and Clinton wrapped up a massive rally in Concord, N.H. White House press secretary Jay Carney described the relationship between the two presidents as having grown "quite strong" during the campaign.
Other than Biden's slight slip, he stayed on message in Lakewood, injecting a localized defense of the Obama administration's action on the auto industry early on in his speech. "I'd like to tell you, Ohio, no matter what those ads say, we did rescue the auto industry," he said.

Maybe Joe’s proud of every day he’s been Bill Clinton’s Vice President.
Slow Joe... we love ya
Just when you renounced the President!
Speaking of Presidents, I seem to recall that although the President of Chrysler says they’re not moving Jeep production, the President of FIAT has stated that they were planning to do just that. Because of Obama, the President of FIAT is the President of Chrysler’s BOSS so what he says goes.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I like to call Biden America’s first openly retarded vice-president. In jest, of course. But now I’m asking a serious question: has Biden ever been checked for signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia? His continuous gaffes and memory lapses (forgetting who is president, forgetting what state he’s in, saying idiotic things) suggest that he might actually be suffering from some medical condition, and not just be a liberal idiot.
He has always been a moron. That fact that he sits in the #2 chair next to a kenyan muslim should scare the crap out of every American.
Grampa’ Joe’s senility reminds me of the late Teddy Kennedy not being able to completely finish off a thought, and just rambling off into space
The old man is senile, and possibly otherwise mentally disabled. Of course, that doesn’t mean he isn’t a liberal idiot. He most definitely is that.
Anyone hear anything about the Romney rally in Cleveland today?
How “massive” was this rally?
Since the debates I have thought it sounded like Obama was running as VP to Clinton.
I think Obama must resent that he is now having to ride on Clinton’s coattails, because Obama blew his political capital.
Obama will be the first black president, the democrats got that but not much else. Clinton is going to remain the Democrats modern day hero. ha. ha. ha.
“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” The Princess Bride
After the election Obama will put Hillary in as VP because Joe is ill and will resign. That will make it easier for her to step into the spot for 2016. That’s a wonderful plan...BUT Obama is going to be voted out of office in 2 days!
Jeez, Joe - it’s easy to remember: Clinton is the one who rapes women, not the whole country!
Just Joe being Joe, folks.
God love ya, Joe, you are one of the greatest assets Mitt Romney has in the Obama camp right now.
: highly injurious or destructive : deadly
archaic : wicked
Not a falsehood, lie, or untruth Joe?
I’m going to miss Joe and his gaffes. Maybe he can get a standup gig somewhere.
