On his way home from a two day swing through Ohio, Vice President Joe Biden stopped off at Hog Father’s Old Fashioned BBQ in Washington, Penn. After working the crowd, and trading stories with patrons and waitstaff, he made his way to the back of the restaurant, where I asked him about the report today of a planned Super-PAC ad campaign focusing on President Obama’s relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
“I was looking at my Blackberry on the way in and guys look,” he said. “I think guys like that so misunderstand the state of the nation they act like its 1942 or something. I mean think the public is so so far beyond. And then I heard getting out of the car it looks like they are not going to do that now. Look there are certain things that are sort of so morally clear and straight–straight lines about it–it almost doesn’t warrant commenting.”
Biden also offered to buy reporters BBQ, but after taking questions from another local journalist, the press was ushered out of the restaurant. The motorcade was rolling again a few minutes later. It’s not clear what he took away to snack on in the car.
