President Obama has no intention of getting rid of Vice President Biden as his running mate, the White House said Thursday.Flashback: Bush says he won't get rid of Quayle.
Republicans are being “ridiculous” and are trying to “distract attention” with their focus on Vice President Biden and his controversial comments earlier this week, White House press secretary Jay Carney said.
“They know that what they're saying about this is ridiculous," Carney said at a briefing with reporters, adding that it's an “obvious” attempt to take attention away from policy issues.
Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign lashed out at Biden and President Obama this week after the vice president in an address in Virginia said the Republican’s approach to the financial industry would “put y’all back in chains.” Biden made the remarks in front of a racially mixed audience.
Obama’s campaign has repeatedly said Biden was simply talking about financial regulation.
(...) The White House spokesman said Obama “absolutely understands and knows what the vice president was talking about.”
Asked if Obama was frustrated by the distraction over the last few days, Carney replied, “Not that I saw.”
