Biden tells audience GOP, banks would put them 'back in chains'
By NBC's Carrie Dann
August 14, 2012, 4:57 pm

NBCNews.com

Updated 1:23 p.m. - DANVILLE, VA -- Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that a Republican-led effort to loosen new regulations on Wall Street would put voters "back in chains."

"Romney wants to, he said in the first 100 days, he's gonna let the big banks again write their own rules," Biden said of the GOP nominee's proposals to roll back the Obama administration's financial reforms. "'Unchain Wall Street!'"

Lowering his voice, Biden added, "They're going to put you all back in chains."

Travis Long / AP Vice President Joe Biden speaks to campaign supporters at the Durham Armory in Durham, N.C.

Danville city is about 48 percent black, according to 2011 census numbers. The audience of about 800 at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research here in Danville reflected the area's demography.

"As the full quote makes obvious, the vice president was clearly using a metaphor to describe the devastating impact of deregulating Wall Street and the financial industry, as well as how Governor Romney’s policies would take us back to the same failed formula that led to the 2008 financial crisis – the same failed formula that benefitted a few, but crashed our economy and hurt the middle class," an Obama campaign official said after Biden's speech.

The Romney campaign reacted sharply to the vice president's remarks.

"After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney, the Obama campaign has reached a new low. 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," said Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul. "President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments."

The vice president's remarks came during a rally, where he described Romney's choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate as a "good thing" that clarifies the race and makes the contest more like one against an incumbent with a concrete record.

"This is a good thing, a good thing for the country that we have this stark, stark choice," he said, referencing items from Ryan's much-discussed budget plan.

Appearing in Virginia, just a few miles from the North Carolina border, Biden won cheers despite mixing up the hard fought battlegrounds where he's stopping on his three-day swing this week.

"With you, we can win North Carolina again, and if we do, we win the election if we win with you," he said to applause.

Biden campaigned in North Carolina yesterday. He has two campaign events in Virginia today.

Why is it okay for the republicans to say wall street is shackled but they go into a frenzy because Biden said something about wallstreet putting everyone back in chains. Is shackled a higher point word in Scrabble than chains?

Shackled = 38
Chains = 32

He said it to predominantly African-American audience in a sick and desperate attempt to be humorous. Adding insult to injury with this degrading metaphor, he tries to use a vernacular that is both condescending and insulting to all that were present. Biden needs to be removed from the ticket and replaced with either Hillary Clinton or Nancy Pelosi.

Obama=Clinton ticket, I would vote for that.
I WOULD HAVE LOVED HILLARY CLINTON, Pres. of The USA in 2008 and Obama as VP.
Biden messes up speaking again. Well, get ready to hear again and again, Romney and Ryan.

Ryan, Romney, Biden, all three. Talk about footing and talking at the same time.

Biden is a liability for the President and has been from day 1. Over the course of the last few years that has only become more apparent. This latest remark is extremely offensive and the President I would think should feel the same way.

Biden brought experience and foreign policy background to a Presidential candidate that needed both in 2008. The President doesn't need to privately or publicly have him around any longer in my opinion. In fact the President might do well with his own "game changer" VP pick. Time to put Joe out to pasture.

Well, hold on a second...the Obama campaign says this...

"President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments."


Now, the original context of all of this is Wall Street deregulation.

Romney, this morning:

quote:
"No one is talking about deregulating Wall Street and no one is talking about the kinds of languages this White House is bringing forward."

Repeal Dodd-Frank and replace with streamlined, modern regulatory framework



Hmmmmm.

I think this is the streamlined modern regulatory framework Romney has in mind.

Damn, it was a hardcore day yesterday. Axelrod cracks on twitter about Romney's dog on top of the car and the head of the RNC counters with Obama eating dog meat as a kid in Indonesia.

OK, so the folks getting disgusted with the process may have a point. Maybe...

I don't recall anything remotely similar. I guess the Clinton campaigns might be the closest.

Nixon and Checkers might be in the same league.

I'm tired of faux outrage designed to deflect the fact that Obama has a vastly different plan than Romney. Why can't we talk issues in the country instead of nit-picking. Romney/Ryan is a ticket that threatens women's rights. Now that's important!

I just wiki-ed it and edumacated micelf. 1952.

I am aware of the "you won't have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore", and his failed bid for President, but I didn't know about the Checkers speech.

He left behind a few classics, like "People have got to know whether or not their President is a crook...Well, I'm NOT a crook." Nixon was a gas.

Ann, with respect, I don't see an erosion of women's rights. It would be near impossible due to the public outcry (from people like you) and the laws already in place.

Are you talking about abortion and/or the transvaginal ultrasound thing? That is on a state level. I don't see Roe v. Wade being altered in any way.

"I don't see Roe v. Wade being altered in any way."

Given that the next president may appoint three supreme court justices, you could be wrong in your thought. I stress "could...."

I think that would trigger social unrest that no one wants to consider. Talk about a hot potato.

Who’s Smarter: Joe Biden or Yogi Berra?


Posted: August 15, 2012 in Featured, Humor, Political Opinion


So I’ve been thinking about all the bad things that would happen to America if President Obama loses in November. And I could only come up with one. We would no longer have Joe Biden to kick around. Admit it: when Joe opens his mouth, you feel a lot smarter than you did right before he opened his mouth.

Take his latest gems.

Just the other day he told a roaring campaign rally, “With you we can win North Carolina.”

He was in Virginia at the time.

Earlier, he told the crowd, ““Romney wants to, he said in the first 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street.”

Then slipping into a southern accent, he finished with, “They’re going to put y’all back in chains.”

Nice move, Joe … except the many black folks in the crowd weren’t laughing.



And bless his heart, remember when Joe, at a rally in Washington, had those nice things to say about the guy’s dead mother.

“His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she’s- wait- your mom’s still- your mom’s still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul.”

Make fun of him if you will … but Joe Biden is the kind of guy who acknowledges the little people in the crowd …

“Stand up, Chuck, let ‘em see ya.”

He was referring to Missouri State Senator Chuck Graham – who is in a wheelchair.

Hey, anybody can make a mistake. At least Joe cares about the middle class. In Athens, Ohio, campaigning in 2008, he got the faithful going with a shot at John McCain …

“Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.”

Yes, Joe, and 2 plus 2 equal 6,000.

Speaking to the House Democratic Caucus, at a retreat in Williamsburg, Virginia, Biden channeled his inner Yogi Berra and said, “If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.”

Maybe, but what are the chances that he’s going to get the name of the guy who put him on the ticket wrong.

“A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States – Barack America!”

I don’t know about you, but I’m hoping we get the opportunity to miss Joe Biden



Vice President Kinnock will be missed

Now, this is silly and hardly qualifies for anything even close to what he said yesterday.

If a Republican had made such remarks there would be complete and total media outrage and extortionists like Jesse Jackson and Al "not-so" Sharpton would be foaming at the mouth. Democrats and their Liberal media hacks are the masters of selective outrage.
