Joe Biden calls Obama Clinton, dubs Mitt Romney’s Jeep ad campaign as “shameless” (Video)By Angel Cuala on Nov 6, 2012 in International, Politics, United States •
US Vice President Joe Biden, who is running for re-election, made a mistake during a presidential campaign on Sunday, November 5, 2012, when he calls the name of US President Barack Obama as former US President Bill Clinton, as shown in the video below. He also hit Mitt Romney‘s Jeep ad campaign.

As noted at Politico.com that day, Biden calls Obama ‘Clinton’ while making his speech in a gym at the Lakewood High School in Cleveland, Ohio, in front of more than 1,000 supporters. He was then slamming Romney‘s earlier claim that Chrysler is planning to transfer the production of Jeep brand from US to China.
“I think it is pernicious. That ad you’ve seen that says President Clinton bankrupted Chrysler so that Italians could buy it to ship jobs overseas to China, Jeep jobs. I’d like to tell you, Ohio, no matter what those ads say; we did rescue the auto industry.” Joe Biden said, as he slips on his speech, referring Obama as Clinton.
“They are shameless. The shamelessness of them is they’re running away from what they believe. That’s the shameless part…It’s clear in the last hour Romney and Ryan have become desperate. Romney will stay anything to win.” Biden added, in response to a shout from the crowd.
“I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China. I will fight for every good job in America, I’m going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it’s fair, America will win.” Mitt Romney was quoted in his speech in Ohio late last month.
Apparently, the 65-year old former Massachusetts governor was believed to have referred a story at Bloomberg News dated October 22, 2012, titled “Fiat Says Jeep Output May Return to China as Demand Rises.” Chrysler immediately issued a statement, denying Romney’s claim, and later a clarification from Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne.
