    This may count as more than just another 'gaff' by that clueless old doofus. In a speech - in Virgina no less - Biden warned the crowd that a vote for Romney would "put y'all back in chains." Biden gets a free pass on saying offensive shit all the time because he is a known mental case, but this may be too far even for the compliant press.

    I was appauled when I heard that remark.

    But you are right... the press will give him a pass, and so will black Americans.

    What an outrageous thing to say... and wow what a lie at that.

    "You didn't build that" was a dumb sentence taken out of context.


    Same thing

    Same thing"

    How could you, of all people, be so - so - correct?

    There are much more important reasons to be against both parties.

    But the chain analogy is used relatively often by members of both parties.

    Rick Santorum invoked chains last summer to warned Iowa voters that health care reform would lull citizens into government dependency. “They will put you in chains called ‘Obamacare,’ and you will never break away,” Santorum said.

    Florida Rep. Allen West went a step further, likening Obama’s programs to slavery. “He does not want you to have the self-esteem of getting up and earning and having that title of American,” West said in July. “He’d rather you be his slave.”

    RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, refused to condemn West’s comments at the time, but he tweeted his disapproval of Biden’s remark Tuesday.

    I just don't, blindly, cling on to the bullshit noise that pops up now and again.


    Totally agree with that last sentence
    :cool:
