    1. President Barack Obama is defending Vice President Joe Biden against criticism of his remarks that Republican repeal of Wall Street regulations would put voters "back in chains."
    In an interview with People magazine on Wednesday, Obama said Biden's remarks meant consumers would be worse off if Republicans succeeded in doing away with new restraints on financial institutions.

    2. Hundreds of black people were in the audience when Biden added, "They're going to put y'all back in chains."

    3. Joe does it again!
    In a speech today in Virginia, Vice President Joe Biden seemed to forget we're in the 21st century:

    'Folks, where's it written we cannot lead the world in the 20th century in making automobiles?," said Biden.

    4. The White House has to worry that for the next 82 days Joe Biden will be under tremendous scrutiny — especially given the fact that Paul Ryan has become such a media-attention magnet. Everyone is anticipating the October 11 debate between Biden and Ryan. Biden’s penchant for off-the-cuff remarks doesn’t inspire confidence that he won’t unintentionally blurt something out when facing Ryan.

    5. So Democrats are stuck with Old Joe, who will turn 70 this November. It’s said that few people vote for a presidential ticket based on who is filling the No. 2 slot. But some do, and they may matter in a very close race. It’s likely that by the time this campaign ends, a lot of people will be more nervous about Joe Biden being a heartbeat away from the presidency than about Paul Ryan.

    That’s a good strategy, Obama. Spend your time explaining Biden’s gaffes!

    Remember when the Right used to blame the financial meltdown on Democrats, by claiming the Democrats blocked efforts to REGULATE the financial institutions?

    NOW, the Right opposes that same sort of regulation?

    Now they attack the Democrats, and comically try to demonize Joe Biden, for supporting that sort of regulation?

    We are dealing with fools, people.

    Good for the President. If that's the worst gaff Joe makes this year we'll be lucky.

    How many times has the Romney camp fabricated talking points from clips of a speech cobbled together to present a false narrative of the message? In fact such a lie is central to their campaign now.

    Not to worry. After all, the Dims are so sure Joey's gonna wipe the floor with Ryan during their debate.

    it was not a gaff - it was planned ahead of time, other than Joe was suppose to use the word shackle instead of chains.

    the message got through.

    Of course the kenyan is defending the chains comment. He and all the rest of the dems have been keeping blacks in virtual chains for decades keeping them dependent on government scraps, quotas, hand outs and freebies.
