Biden said this morning that he is disappointed in the campaign being waged by his friend, John McCain, saying he's seeing the same "Karl Rovian tactics" used today that felled the Arizona senator in 2000.

"What really disappoints me is the very tactics used against [McCain in 2000], they’re trying to use against Barack Obama," Biden said at a fundraiser in Boston this morning. "It's literally saddening. I didn’t expect it. But I guess I should learn to expect everything."


Yet Biden expressed confidence that "swiftboating is not going to work this time," in part because he thinks the electorate is more focused about "big ticket items," but also because he said he'd personally fight back, or, "smack 'em right square in the chops."


"I tell you what, you know anything about me, I ain't rolling over," he said. "There's no possibility."


He promised that he and Obama will "take this thing to a new level," and as long as the Democratic ticket can "keep this close, we win." That's where the money pitch came in.


"All we want is to punch back. All we want is to respond," he said. "We know we cannot let scurrilous accusations go unanswered... That’s where we need you.”

The media has been focusing on the Republican VP exclusively, but don't forget that they are liberal and are doing whatever they can for Obama/Biden. :rolleyes:

Umm they have been doing their best to crush her. The only story that has even been remotely pro-Palin has been this pig/lipstick nonsense. Don't minimize what the press has been trying to do to her.
