Biden Slams PACs for “Nasty, Deceptive” Ads

Apparently he hasn’t seen the one accusing Mitt Romney of murder.

Vice President Joe Biden complained about “nasty, deceptive  TV ads” run by super PACs could turn this campaign into “a lopsided fight” even as his super PAC is defending a video that blames Mitt Romney for a woman’s death.

“The people on the other side who are trying to buy this election are putting nasty, deceptive TV ads on the air right this very minute,” Biden wrote in a fundraising email last night that warned the ads would only start “getting worse” now that Romney has picked Paul Ryan as a running mate.

Obama’s campaign still has not repudiated a video produced by their official super PAC that blames Mitt Romney for the death of a woman by cancer by alleging that she didn’t have insurance because her husband lost his job at a Bain-owned plant.

“Our Briana Keilar did a fact check of that ad and it’s full of falsehoods,” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said before asking the Obama campaign to call it “repulsive” (the president’s spokeswoman said she “can’t speak” to the ad.)
