Axelrod attacks Romney for ‘phony outrage’ over Biden’s ‘back in chains’ line
Washington Examiner ^ | 8/14/12 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 08/14/2012 3:32:11 PM PDT by Nachum

David Axelrod, President Obama’s top strategist, believes that the reaction to Vice President Joe Biden’s comment that Romney will “put y’all back in chains” if he is elected.

“Enough phony outrage from Team Mitt, while they pour millions into ads that blatantly, brazenly lie about POTUS record on welfare to work,” Axelrod tweeted.

Biden, recalling that Romney wants to “unchain Wall Street,” predicted that such a policy would “put y’all back in chains” during an event in Danville, Va., which has a 48 percent African-American population.

The Romney campaign condemned the comment. “After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney, the Obama Campaign has reached a new low,” Romney campaign press secretary Andrea Saul said today. “The comments made by the Vice President of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama Campaign will say and do anything to win this election. President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments.”

These aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radicals (psycho spoiled brats actually) and their bratty ideological issue are playing their silly campus games. They will never grow up.. childish. But very dangerous.

And if Romney would have used the word “chains” in any way within a square mile of any minority he would have been called out as a racist on every prime-time news broadcast.

We need someone on our side to start the claim that 0bama plans to implement a one child policy and will rip babies out of the womb if necessary. That is actually more believable than Biden’s comment.

He is not burdened by one of those "conscience" thingies

Romney’s campaign is going to have to find a new phrase other than “has reached a new low” because Hussein and his team do that everyday.

“David Axelrod, President Obama’s top strategist, believes that the reaction to Vice President Joe Biden’s comment that Romney will “put y’all back in chains” if he is elected.”

I had to read that a couple of times Nachum. The author didn’t complete his thought. He believes the reaction is what?

Anyway....

Blacks in chains IS the Democrat mindset. They are the party of the slaves, the KKK afterall, therefore legitimately it would be “phony outrage” to their perspective. That would be the natural way the Democrat would see it. Just as a baseball player uses baseball/sports metaphors often in his dialogue Democrats use condescending, subjugative, dominating, arrogant, slave/chains/ruler, etc. often in theirs. It’s natural to their perspective of life, afterall they are so much more “intellectual”, and “Progressive”.

Gosh I hope I don’t need a /sarc tag on this.

Romney’s response team is on the ball. And it puts Obama on the defensive.

ABC News tonight spent more time on Biden’s comments than it did on Obama in OH. And they had a very fair spot about Ryan’s Medicare plan which stressed that the plan would not affect anyone over age 55 and that each person eventually would have an average of $15,000 to purchase health insurance in the private market or stay enrolled in the current Medicare system.

You’re basically right, but its also a good strategy to keep them on the defensive all the time.

Hey, Axlehead, you DemocRATS already have the majority of the negro population in chains down on the DemocRAT plantation.

The hyphenated Africans will never leave as the world outside Democrat plantation is strange and unknown to these slaves.

Wrong. Trim Axelrod's mustache appropriately and he is a near dead-ringer for one Adolf Hitler....

Is that photoshopped? Axelrod is looking a little Germany, 1938.

Biden's comment is outright race baiting. It could even be construed as a hate crime if a Republican had said it. If it came from Paul Ryan, there would be riots in the streets demanding he be off the ticket and Romney with him for making such a bad choice.

Biden's comment reminded me of the desperate Al Gore racing across the country claiming Republicans wanted to make blacks 3/5th of a person again while Stevie Wonder played piano.

Axelrod and his heritage need to be thoroughly vetted/outed. I am still searching for the leak to an active communist party member in Moscow who at a dinner party in 1980s boasted that Obama was being primed to be POTUSA. It could have been any of the numerous communists floating around in Chicago at the time but I’ll put my money on Axelrod who is reported to have family roots going back to Lenin and Trotsky. The family name Axelrod has been Americanized from a more Russian version.

The actual photograph of Axelrod hasn’t been morphed other than the mustache being trimmed and returning to it’s original shape. I couldn’t resist when I saw the original photo. He looks like a brother to old Adolf. I created the animation.

I agree with your comments about Biden’s race baiting. It’s so blatant it treats Blacks like children, as if they’re too stupid to know what he’s doing.

It’s hard to believe this doesn’t start angering them something fierce.
