Joe Biden clarifies "in chains" remark
CBS News ^ | August 14, 2012 | by Brian Montopoli

Posted on 08/14/2012 4:55:58 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

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.

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”.

I wonder who Joe's designated "smart guy" is; the person who comes up with the "clarification" when Joe goes mentally AWOL, which is pretty much every time he opens his mouth it would seem.

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.

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.

I thought he was talking about ‘chain stores’.
That Dem donors would no longer get the kickbacks and graft that, under Obama, has allowed them to shop at trendy boutique stores while the little people took food stamps to WalMart .

Obama and Biden have already put us in “chains”, including

*my generation, my childrens’ and my grandchildrens’ because they are chained to paying off the 15 TRILLION DOLLAR federal debt, increased by 7-9 TRILLION by Obama.

*chained us to less medicare

*chained us to debts owed the dictators in Red China

*chained us to an inadequate military system, lacking planes, missiles, nuclear weapons, ships, rockets, and space defense systems

*chained us to relying on the always friendly Russians for lifting astronauts and supplies to the international space station

*chaining us to supporting the Moslem Brotherhood fascists in the Middle East

*chained us to an ineffective, girlfriend infested Dept. of Homeland Security run by the always incompetent Janet Napolitano

*chained us to unsecured or poorly secured borders, drug cartels killing people in the US while flooding the cities with dangerous drugs and corrupting our law enforcement people.

*chained us to an “Open Borders” immigration policy

*chained us to a very stupid Transporation Security Agency

*chained us to the marxist-led, anti-capitalist Environmental Protection Agency

*chained us to a leftist, political corrupt, and anti-white Dept. of Justice with its ideologically corrupt, white-hating Attorney General and his handpicked bunch of racists and leftists, esp. in the Civil Rights Div.

*chained us to Secretaries of the Interior (Salazar) and Agriculture ((Vilsack, aka Sack of shit), who are totally incompetent as well as those White House Advisers

*chained us to the marxist/totalitarian influences of Obama’s “Czars” (past and present, Van Jones, Cass Sunstein, Ratner, Hansen, Holdren, etc).

*chained us to a corrupt White House Administration (Roemer, Cutter, Dunn, Brauer, etc).

*chained us to a totally corrupt Democratic Senate who has yet to pass any annual budget as required by law

*chained us to a DOJ who deliberately ignores lawful court orders to produce documents to Congress and under FOIA requests

*chained us to an an Administration that pays off its fundraising bundlers whose businesses have failed, and their associated thug unions, while screwing the stockholders despite being required by law to pay them something

*chained us to a Secy of State who is totally incompetent, married to an incompetent adulterer who pulls in $100,000 a speech from fawning ass-kissing industries (including the banking industry), while the average American couldn’t make that much money in two-three years of working a legitimate job)

These are not “Chains of Love” but those of “Slavery” produced by Liberals/Leftists/Marxists Utopian totalitarian wet dreams

Obama 2008: HOPE AND CHANGE
OBAMA 2012: YOU DOPES GOT YOUR CHAINS

“YES I DID” and you can’t do a damned thing about it because you are stupid and will vote for me and my marxist minions, AGAIN, in November.

Welcome to the ideological/welfare plantation. Like a ROACH MOTEL, “you can enter but you can never leave” because we control your information by lies, distortions, disinformation, and sheer contempt for your intelligence because we believe you don’t have any like SHEEP.

I’m Pres. Obama and I approve of your stupidity. Now, don’t forget to vote for me, early and often, like good little lemming.

Delaware wasn't much of a slave state. Slavery was banned in Wilmington from the early 1800’s. It was illegal to export slaves from Delaware, and freemen far outnumbered slaves.

In 1860 blacks made up over 23% of the state's population with the following breakout:
COUNTY SLAVES FREE TOTAL
New Castle 254 8,188 8,442
Kent 303 7,271 7,474
Sussex 1,341 4,370 5,711
Total 1,798 19,829 21,627

Joe never represented the “average” Delawarean. He was owned by the banks and did their bidding. Same with Carper. Same with Coons. Same with Carney.

And the stupid “average” Delawarean continues to vote for the guy who shut down TWO auto plants, gave $800 Million to a company to build cars in Finland and agrees with his boss that all coal miners and oil workers must lose their jobs.

GET ME THE HECK OUT OF HERE.

Still, he IS a donkey in a well.....

A family member had a donkey several years ago...she named him “Donkeyhoty” (Sounds like Don Quixote!) He was the sweetest little thing, and very cute. Seeing a picture of this endearing creature in a well brought a laugh to my heart.

But I really like the originally intended meaning of the picture too! A picture is truly worth a 1000 or 10,000 words!
