Of course, “The One” will NEVER apologize for “Slow” Joe over his obviously thinly veiled racist comments this morning. The comments were specifically about bank deregulation but everyone knew what he meant – especially before at least half an African-American audience.
Here is the video, once again:
In any event, Team Romney is outraged.
Mitt Romney’s campaign blasted President Obama’s team for hitting a “new low” after Vice President Biden suggested to voters that the Republican ticket’s economic policies would “put y’all back in chains.” Biden made the remark while campaigning Tuesday in Virginia, during a discussion of Wall Street regulation. “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,” Biden said. “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.”
Romney’s campaign said the remarks showed the president is determined to run a negative campaign. “After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Gov. Romney, the Obama campaign has reached a new low,” Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said. “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 then called on the president to say whether he condoned Biden’s language. “President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments,” Saul said.
The gaffe-prone Biden has put his foot in his mouth again. But, wait, maybe it is a set up so that Obama could excuse “Slow” Joe and substitute in Hillary Clinton.
Maybe the polls are just that bad….
