A few days ago Vice President Joe Biden was campaigning in Danville, Virginia. Apparently he thought he was in North Carolina when he told the crowd: "“With you, we can win North Carolina again!” But that gaffe, which is typical of Joe Biden's blunders was not the only doo-doo Joe Biden stepped in that day. Later he told the crowd that Romney wants to "unchain Wall Street" which is curious considering that the Obama-Biden Administration has had ZERO prosecutions of Wall Street fraud. By contrast, the Bush Administration had 1,300 convictions of Wall Street crooks.
But Biden wasn't done yet. He told the crowd, which included a large percentage of Black Americans, that after Romney unchained Wall Steet "They're going to put y'all back in chains." That kind of racist condescension is nothing new for Democrats. One commenter even went so far as to accuse Romney of the "niggarization of Obama." But it's one thing for a relative nobody on television making racially inflammatory statements and quite another for a sitting Vice President to do so.
What a contrast Biden makes with the smart, affable Paul Ryan. I can't wait for the debates. That is if Biden is still in the race.
Biden is clearly a drag on a ticket that already has it's hands full dealing with the utter failure of Obama's economic policy. The matter of his recent statement raised new questions about whether he would remain on the ticket. Obama said yes, but there was also a curious meeting with Obama, Biden and Hillary in the Oval Office on Thursday which raised eyebrows.
A Republican Super Pac concerned that Biden may be dropped from the ticket rushed out this web video urging him to stay:
Joe Biden is one of the best reminders of what is wrong with the Obama Administration. It would be a shame to lose him now. Besides, he's always great for a laugh!
