Vice President Joe Biden has clarified a comment he made earlier today in which he said presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney would "put you all back in chains" by unshackling Wall Street.
"And I'm told when I made that comment earlier today in Danville, Virginia, the Romney Campaign put out a Tweet, you know Tweets, and went on the air, went on the airwaves saying 'Biden's outrageous in saying that - I think I said, instead of unshackled, unchained or - anyway, outrageous to say that, that's what we meant. I'm using their own words. I got a message for them, if you want to know want to know what's outrageous, it's their policies, and the effects of their policies on middle class America, that's what's outrageous."
Biden's initial comment centered on what he cast as plans by Republicans to allow banks to dictate the regulations they would be subject to.
Romney has vowed "to let the big banks write their own rules -- unchain Wall Street," Biden said in Danville, Va. "They're going to put y'all back in chains."

It wasn’t “you all”. It was y’all. And in this instance it makes a difference.
What a moran.
OK, that’s “clear”.
Biden is CLEARLY pandering.
“Y’all”???? Seriously, Joe?
Biden gives to living testimony to the word “Dummy”.
When are “The Minorities”of this country going to REVOLT against the CONDESCENDING way they are treated by The DemonRats?Who were the SLAVE HOLDERS???Who FREED THEM????What is this,US History 101??????
Just explain you have a plate in your head, Joe. Everybody will understand.
Botched ‘Botomy Biden.
LOL! Great picture of a donkey in a well!
If I didn’t know better (and I don’t) this would seem like a diabolical ploy to remove Joe Biden from the ticket(soon, after some mystery ailment is revealed) and replace him with Hilary. Just so they can have another “historic election”.
Face it - Joe is way beyond his “expiration date”.
Why is it that democrats always have to clarify their remarks?
By the way, I've spent some time in Delaware, and all I can say is... Joe does a great job of representing the average Delawarean.
I wasn’t this stupid when I was first learning how to walk. How could somebody so braindead ever be elected to office?
The first rule of being in a self constructed hole, is to put down the shovel, and stop digging. That clarification read’s like an SNL skit.
>>>How could somebody so braindead ever be elected to office?<<<
By being a Democrat.
I prefer “Ass in hole”
Not a chance in Heck. Obammy may be a Socialist wreck, but he's not suicidal. With Hillary! as VP, he'll be dead right after the 10-year cutoff of the 22nd Amendment. You heard it here first.
