Via the Examiner, this is actually a fairly deft, politic response to a realllly bad outcome. He can’t say “voters are stupid” or, as his party believes, “voters are racist,” so instead he absolves them and lays the whole thing implicitly on — who else? — George W. Bush. But since no one takes Biden seriously, it transforms instantly into a late-afternoon giggle about the VP kinda sorta admitting they deserve to lose to a felon. Can’t wait for that Arkansas primary.
As a little bonus on the recurring theme of “no one takes Biden seriously,” watch the new ad below from American Crossroads after you’re done with the first clip. Starts slow but you’ll enjoy the payoff, I promise.
