$200 Billion in Ads, Mr. Biden? That’s Real Money
By MICHAEL D. SHEAR
Conservative groups have not dumped $200 billion in political ads on the heads of Democratic candidates.
It evidently just feels that way to the White House.
In an interview with Al Hunt of Bloomberg News scheduled to be shown Friday night, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. commented on the need for disclosure when corporate interests contribute to political groups.
“I was amazed at the amount of money, this $200 billion of money that is — where there’s no accountability,” he said. “When I say accountability, we don’t know where it’s coming from. There’s no disclosure, so the folks watching the ad can’t make a judgment based upon motive when you say it’s paid for by so-and-so.”
Mr. Biden clearly meant “million” with an “M,” not “billion” with a “B.”
But his tongue slipped again a moment later. “So it really — I’ve never seen this before, so the only caveat I’d put in terms of the House is how much impact this $200 billion are going to mean.”
Biden along with Obama are empty suits elected not because what they could do for this country but for what they promised and failed to deliver for her.
How many lies have we seen out of this bunch? Yes libs this is a lie. Not once but twice did he try to fool the American people into believing the GOP is dumping 2 billion into this election. First they tried to claim it was foreign money until last week that was exposed to be the lie it was to start with. Now claiming the party of the working class (that a huge lie all by itself) cannot compete with big business money.
So either Biden is lying or is a fool like you claimed Bush was for misspeaking.
