Vice President Joe Biden is coming unhinged. The other day he invoked Paul Ryan’s deceased father. Today was even worse, he told a crowd of mostly black supporters that Republicans would put them in chains. Are there really people who take this guy seriously?
Vice President Joseph R. Biden told an audience that included several hundred black supporters Tuesday that Republican Mitt Romney’s efforts to loosen Wall Street regulations would put voters “back in chains.”
“Romney wants to, he said in the first 100 days, he’s gonna let the big banks again write their own rules, unchain Wall Street” Mr. Biden said of the presumptive GOP nominee at a campaign rally in Danville, Va. The vice president then lowered his voice and added, “They’re going to put y’all back in chains.”
Danville is roughly half black, and there were many black supporters in the audience of about 800 at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research.
The Romney campaign reacted swiftly, accusing the Obama campaign of gutter politics. (Read More)
Romney’s spokeswoman said that the Obama campaign has sunk to a new low. They seem to do that every day. They’ve essentially let it be known that from here on out they will be campaigning from the gutter. It’s all they’ve got, seeing that their record is so abysmal.
