Obama campaign takes race-mongering to new low
Vice President Joe Biden told a racially mixed audience Wednesday that if Republicans take back the White House, Theyre going to put yall back in chains. Its hard to say what is more offensive: Mr. Bidens overt use of inflammatory racial symbolism, or someone from Delaware saying yall.
Stephanie Cutter, the Obama campaigns apply-named hatchet man, claimed Mr. Biden was using a metaphor to talk about whats going to happen and that the bottom line is that we have no problem with those comments. That makes sense. Theres no reason for the Obama campaign to apologize because hacking at the raw wound of racism is critical to the Democrats reelection strategy.
This race is about race because if it were about issues, Democrats would lose. Mr. Obamas moribund economic record would guarantee that. Democrats havent fared well with majority white voters generally at the presidential level. According to Gallup, the only Democratic presidential nominee to win a majority of the white vote in the last 60 years was Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Currently, white men favor Mr. Romney by a 24-point margin, and white women back the Republican ticket by 7 percent, according to Gallup.
White voters are still an overwhelming majority, but Democrats calculate there are enough self-loathing liberals of pallor who will vote for Mr. Obama even as they are being castigated for their ethnicity...

Pretenders - Back on the Chain Gang
That's an insult to birds!
Thanks Nachum, haven’t heard that for many moons.
Sorry Fly, you’re as right as can be.
Joe Cocker - Unchain My Heart
Campaign also about fear, see Mediscare; and lastly class warfare, see rich v poor.
Biden's not worth a pish.
Aaron, that you?
Biden knows what he is doing and how far he can push things. Its OK with the DNC and that DWS woman. They plan to take this election any means necessary, while MSN looks the other way.
Biden is the original soggy bottom boy.
Just noticed your tagline, nice.
We lament the fate citizens broken and made dependent just so they'll vote dem - that happens.
Biden’s an idiot - the only people crass enough and selfp-serving enough not to see how stupid Biden is are the people at the New York Times. Biden could be drooling on the floor, speaking gibberish and spitting obscenities and the New York Times would be impressed with his brilliance...
Well said and so true!
Good one! Here's another:
Unchained Melody--Les Baxter & His Orchestra
Thanks, that’s a great song, was a teen when it was written.
I am a man of constant borrow
I've caused troubles all my days.
Just like my cousin back in Kenya
Where I was born, so grandma says
(chorus) Where he was born, so grandma says
For four long years I'm causin trouble
For this land I will destroy
While my own speech its quite a jumble
That teleprompters quite the toy
(chorus) That teleprompters quite the toy
It's fare thee well you liberal morons
You death wish Jews and Christians too
For after this no more elections
My Muslim faith tells me its so
(chorus) His Muslim faith tells him its so
Ill bury you in that big debt valley
Just four more years your land Ill slay
Then you will learn to love to love your masters
Or youll be sleeping in your graves
(chorus) Or youll be sleeping in your graves
Do you still think I'm the Messiah?
Come here to solve your every woe
Well then I hate to burst your bubble
Im here to rob you of your souls
(chorus) He's here to rob us of our souls
Made me smile because this is so true. Southern Delaware is bordered on two sides by the Mason-Dixon line, and is very Southern in nature.
It is also very conservative, and embarassed that Joe Biden is from DE.
Dope and Chains
Thanks jazusamo - I enjoy your comments and threads too - always interesting.
That is amazingly good :).
Would you mind if I grab the thing and post it, with full credits and linkage and stuff?
O' Brother Where Art Thou is one of my favorite films. To the point where I can enjoy Clooney's participation (actually it's by far the best acting job he ever did. And his role as an articulate moronic con artist, getting his a** kicked twice, and nearly hanged once were definite treats). But the music, that took me back to age five listening to my dad's old Blue Grass 78's, was and is the main hook.
Yeah, it’s one of my favorite movies too. It redeems Clooney from a whole lot of other stuff.
