    by Wes Barrett | August 14, 2012


    The Obama campaign did the same to Bill and Hillary Clinton in 2008!

    Mistake. Romney needs to quit replying to every attack that Obama's campaign puts out there. They do it on a daily basis. STOP PLAYING DEFENSE.

    Best thing to do would be to shrug your shoulders, chuckle a little bit and say, "Wow, I can't believe they say stuff like that." Then immediately say, "Did you know that Obama has run up the debt by almost 6 trillion dollars."

    Biden is an idiot.

    But it doesn't matter what he says to blacks. Obama already has their vote. It's just empty rhetoric.

    We are all in chains but most have yet to catch on.

    Touche. A great summary about why the GOP is digging their grave deeper and deeper.

    His comments about putting people back in chains was not about race. It was about being chained to wall street. The full context of the comments can be seen here:

    You are of course correct - but truths like that don't seem to matter.

    Quit confusing things with the facts :)

    While that may be true, IMHO it was a poor choice of words on Biden's part. Not surprising, as he has a history of 'foot in mouth' disease.

    From 'Obama Plays the Race Card' to 'Biden Makes Another Gaffe' is quite a distance.

    I have a different take on this.

    It was the race card - and not a gaffe - but a race card played in a different way than normally played.

    The use of the words "back in chains" was intended for African Americans.

    Obama and the Dems are worried because Obama's support among African Americans has dropped.

    He will still get a huge majority of the African American vote - among African Americans that actually vote that is.

    Obama is afraid that African American voters will tend to stay home this time around - and if too many do Obama is in real trouble.

    The charged rhetoric was intended to get out the Black vote.

    There is a straight line between those two points, though. :smilewinkgrin:

    Through the wealth redistribution from the poor and middle class to the rich the Republicans have already succeeded in putting those two classes in financial chains. With the proposals of Romney and Ryan they want the chains double locked.

    Be honest folk, it is not racial chains that is being talked about, but financial chains.

    Thanks for your reasoned reply. I am not sure there is enough skill in the campaign team to come up with that kind of plan and I sure wouldn't trust the vice-president to deliver.

    BTW...

    What is it with Northern Democrats campaigning in the South?

    Does Biden say "y'all" much when he is back home in DC?

    It sounds a bit condescending wouldn't everyone agree?

    The problem is the phrase "back in chains" which would indicate the people he was talking to had once been in chains.
