STORY: TRUUUU! Joe Biden Said Romney Will Put Americans Back In Chains
Earlier this week VP Joe Biden, said during a discussion of Wall Street regulation in Virginia:
“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.”
After that the Romney campaign got their panties in a bunch and demanded Obama scold Biden for his comments.
The President didn’t waver, instead ridding with his boy Biden saying it was not meant to “connote” anything other than the Wall Street reform he was discussing at a campaign rally.
Obama told People Magazine the comment was taken out of context and Biden was discussing that “consumers, the American people, will be a lot worse off it we repeal these [Wall Street reform] laws as the other side is suggesting.”
Obama told People Magazine:
“In no sense was he trying to connote something other than that…the truth is that during the course of these campaigns, folks like to get obsessed with how something was phrased even if everybody personally understands that’s not how it was meant. That’s sort of the nature of modern campaigns and modern coverage of campaigns.”
Obama went on to call Biden “an outstanding vice president.”
“He is passionate about what’s happening in middle class families…So I will be talking to him a whole lot about the campaign in general.”
Being true to himself, Biden did not show any signs of apologizing for his comments, saying,
“I know I am sometimes criticized for saying exactly what I mean…It’s not gonna change.”
Mitt Romney needs to grow a pair, this is politics dude, expect the ish to fly.
