Joe Biden only took one question from the press during his stop in Portsmouth on Thursday, and his answer was terse but telling.

Asked by a CNN producer if he felt Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen went too far in her criticism of Ann Romney, Biden answered, "Absolutely," making it clear that the White House wants to put the story behind it as quickly as possible. He then jumped in a car and was whisked away to the airport.
