Biden on Romney: ‘They’re going to put y’all back in chains’

Vice President Joe Biden told supporters that Republicans would “put y’all back in chains,” during a campaign speech Tuesday in Danville, Va.

VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: They’ve said it. Every Republican’s voted for it. Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they’re proposing. Romney wants to let the—he said in the first 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules–unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put y’all back in chains. He’s said he’s going to do nothing about stopping the practice of outsourcing…
Biden was introduced at the campaign event by Center for American Progress Action Fund president Tom Perriello, who called Biden “the conscience of our nation’s capital.”

UPDATE: Romney campaign spokesperson Andrea Saul said Biden’s “chains” comments were unacceptable.

“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,” Saul said in a statement released by the campaign. ”President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments.”

Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said Monday the campaign has “no problem with those comments,” in an interview with Andrea Mitchell.

Is our Vice-President attempting to incite riots? He should be held liable for this.

Just saw a STUNNING report on CNN. They had a Romney guy on (Vin Weber, I think) to talk about this. There was the quote under the talking head the whole time, there was Brooke Baldwin, asking in an ominous tone, teeing it up for the Republican, “Well, Congressman, what do you think of this?” And, I swear to God, the dumb, stupid, ignorant, unimaginably dense freaking tard dumb-ass, spent the entire 5 minute segment attacking the FIRST part of the quote, the part about banking regs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not ONE SINGLE SYLLABLE addressed to the outrageous statement. NOT ONE!
Where do we find these GD FOOLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It will be interesting to see how the lame-stream media makes this a “NON-STORY”.

Actually using Y’all when you aren’t southern is pretty damned condescending to all southerners in my experience...

But bless his heart for trying.

In business there is something called “golden handcuffs”.

The people Biden is talking to are already in chains. The modern word for it is “welfare” or “food stamps” or “section 8 housing”.

Hmmm? I'm not by any stretch of even the most fevered imagination a Perot supporter, but even I can't help but notice the disparity in coverage/MSM attitude.

Anything anyone to the right of Chairman Mao says in front of a black audience is racist.

Anything a democrat says is in solidarity with people of color.

Romney should play that clip on all of the networks as a commercial. He could comment that this is what divisive and racist campaigning is about and that he wants to bring the country together. I know it’s simple but consider the audience.

Ironic that the ‘rats are enslaving blacks in gov’t dependency,
and enslaving the middle class to pay for that dependency,

and all the while making the blacks believe that the ‘rats are “gettin’ back at whitey” for them.

Yep. I still have them, and in a way, appreciate them for what they represent: food on the table.

Looks like "borking" on steroids. In 1987, Robert Bork, who eschewed mixing law with politics, did not go public to argue agaisnt the inflammatory accusations, mostly by Kennedy, in his own defense. This was a praiseworthy and principled effort but, as Bork put it, ended in a bloody crossroads, resulting most likely in the bloody outcome of millions more babies aborted.

Let's hope our side, as Marco Rubio puts it, "sets the record straight," as we are not under the same judicial restraints as Bork. As Bork says, these desperate borking tactics and desire for power "lays bare the authoritarian character" of the American left (from The Tempting of America by Robert Bork).

Only the blindest idiot will watch the VP debate and think that Biden would be better as president than Ryan. I can’t wait.

You see this is why we should hammer the fact that this is Projection.. When they get up in the morning they should think that whenever they see a rat speaking he is lieing.

Unfortunately there is no shortage of blind ideologues.

Besides, Biden is by no means certain to be the VP pick, there's still plenty of room under the bus...

My Pet Theory: The Media is going to stop filtering Biden's gross stupidity and incompetence, because they want Obama to bounce him from the ticket. Zero can just say that Gool Ol' Joe has lost a step, and it is time for him to spend more time with his family...

The reason for this, of course, is that they are all peeing their pants in fear over the prospect of a Biden/Ryan debate...

If my theory is correct, look for the drip-drip-drip of Biden gaffes to continue.

We could have a lot of fun speculating on who The Once would pick for impeachment insurance for his next term.

He can't pick Hillary!, because not even The Once is stupid enough to give Hillary! that kind of motivation...

...and follow that with questions and answers:

Joe Biden, which party freed the slaves? Republicans!

Joe Biden, who marched with Dr. King? Republicans!

Mr. Biden, who put on white sheets, tortured and lynched innocent young black men in the middle of the night? Democrats!
