VP Biden May Wish Y’all Didn’t Listen So Closely

Danville, VA (WIBX) – During a speech in Danville, Virginia yesterday, Vice President Joe Biden criticized Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s banking policies, saying, “…[I]n the first one hundred days he’s going to let big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put y’all back in chains.”

The Republican candidate seized the opportunity to attack the Vice President’s remark asserting that the “…wild and reckless accusations (disgrace) the office of the presidency.”

The White House defended Biden, saying that the comment was in reference to the phrase “unshackling of the economy” used by both parties.

Still, Biden’s comments are burning up the blogs.  It is not the first time that the Vice President has misspoken.  Some of the things that he has said cannot be printed here but you can find them in an article by Daniel Kurtzman, who has compiled some of them for you.  But, whether the remarks were ill-intentioned or not, most can agree that the gaffe was certainly ill-timed.

At another rally later in the day Biden said that he had used the wrong word and had meant to say “unshackled,” responding to Romney’s assertion that the comment was “outrageous,” the Vice President countered that what is outrageous is “…their policies and the effects of their policies on middle-class America.”
