While Joe Biden waits on that endorsement from Barack Obama, he keeps reminding us all โ through the debates and through ads like this one โ that he was part of the Obama administration. Itโs almost as if Biden were spending all his campaign cash trying to get Obama re-elected; itโs obvious he thought his standing as a popular presidentโs vice president would allow him to coast through the primaries.
But now with Bernie Sanders the clear frontrunner, Bidenโs starting to go negative, and in his new spot, he reminds us that Sanders was considering launching a primary challenge against Obama โ the first African-American president. It sounds racist to us.
I think Barack Obama was one hell of a President. I was proud to stand alongside him every step of the way โ and fought like hell to make sure he was re-elected.

Um, he does remember that both he and Hillary Clinton also ran against Barack Obama, right? Or maybe not โฆ he forgets a lot.
Not to be 100% correct or anything, but you ran against Obama in 2008.

You ran against him in 08. If you had it your way he never would have been president.

Seems the feeling is not mutual from BO.
It is amusing to see you dems turning on each otherโฆjust as you have turned on the American people.

You are making a huge mistake thinking that using Obama's legacy with help you win the primaries or the electionsโฆ

He's not running, champ. He's irrelevant. You have to do this yourself.
