When Vice President Joe Biden says crazy things, I usually ignore it. I pretend I didn't hear and then go about my business because I refuse to believe anyone would say some of the things he says and still be looked at as a good man. This hit a nerve. I don't know what's worse: What Joe Biden said or the people rushing to defend what he said. Biden didn't say "He's going to put you all back in chains." He said, "He gon put chyall back in chains." He says this in front of a predominately black crowd, so maybe what's worse is the audience that doesn't see they're being played. If you don't find his words despicable, you're either an idiot or gutless or both. It's not funny, it's not cute, it's wrong.
This isn't dirty, it's lower than dirt. They've been playing division, envy and fear since last year so I'm not surprised, but Paul Ryan has made them desperate. They will do anything to avoid talking about the economy, and, unfortunately for them, Paul Ryan loves talking about the economy. It's one thing to call Mitt Romney an "outsourcer" or a felon, but to paint him as a slave owner to a predominately black crowd is crossing the line. It speaks to the liberal mindset regarding blacks. Romney can go before the NAACP and speak to them straight, talk to them about the issues. Joe Biden avoids the issues then tries to sound like he's "one of them."
Back in Chains, he says. Black Unemployment is 14.1%, unemployment for black youth is worse, food stamp use and overall government dependency in the black community has increased. The black community is already in chains and Obama hasn't made it any better. Obama has put the black community on the back burner because he knows he has them in the palm of his hand, or so he thinks. Romney would like to break the chains on businesses, freeing them to hire more people so black people can set themselves free instead of waiting for government to do it.
The response to this is all over the place. People in the campaign are either silent or are having to defend him. Stephanie Cutter, the lying liar who's already been caught in a lie, said it's just a "metaphor". Liberals are quiet or saying something similar to "Well, he's like kinda right, like, uh...Where's the tax returns?" Conservatives are outraged he said it, outraged the media isn't outraged, and saying, "Bring on the VP Debate." The best response would have to be from Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani:
