They’ve said it. Every Republican’s voted for it. Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they’re proposing. Romney wants to let the — he said in the first 100, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, unchain Wall Street, they going gonna put y’all back in chains.
Yep, our esteemed Vice President of the United States said, “They gonna put y’all back in chains.” We get exuding familiarity and connecting with voters is key, but is it really appropriate for the VP of the United States to abandon proper English? Our answer is obviously “no,” but, what’s even more concerning than Biden’s stray from formal speech, is his attempt to change his voice to pander to the largely African American crowed in Danville, VA. If you watch the actual clip, Uncle Joe lowers his voice and tries to connect
via tone to this population. Everyone’s worried that Romney and Ryan are two boring white guys, but at least at this point, they’re not trying to be black. This is what the Obama/Biden team do though – they simply pander to their audience by telling blacks what they want to hear, Jews what they want to hear, women what they want to hear but, as we’ve seen in his first term, those promises ultimately prove to be just words. They’re chameleons who morph into various characters based on the needs at hand and Biden’s actions are no different from this (horrible) political strategy. I mean, look at how Obama has touted quotes from Lincoln, Reagan, JFK – he doesn’t even know who HE is as a president so he tries on various presidential personas. But, alas, Americans voted him into the US presidency so he can figure out who he wants to be when he grows up.
Another important point to note about Joe’s (millionth?) campaign blunder is the sound of crickets coming from the offices of Al Sharpton of Jesse Jackson. These two were born to remind blacks about slavery and are typically the first responders when racism or their interpretation of racism has surfaced. However, in this case, they’re noticeably silent. What’s more interesting, they’re noticeably silent when the comments come from a Democrat. Dare I ask, is their fight for black equality biased? In other words, if Paul Ryan made these comments, lowered his voice, and told blacks that they were going to be put back in chains, would he, too, not hear from Sharpton and Jackson? Doubtful – these two, along with the mainstream media, would be all over this like white on rice.
Lastly, and probably most important, is that these comments continue to show that the Obama campaign merely runs on factions and divisions. They create wars – on women, on the wealthy, on race. They perpetuate existing problems or historical grievances to ultimately use scare tactics. For instance, if Romney will put blacks back in chains those same blacks will obviously say “well I don’t want to be in chains so I’ll vote for Obama.” By inserting these themes into the minds of various groups, they’re not running on their record and what they will do but, instead, they’re running on creating fear in what the other guy will do. This is a sad, pathetic strategy. It’s sad because they don’t truly care about these groups’ problems or concerns, they’re just acting like they do for votes. And, it’s pathetic because, as an incumbent president, Obama, unlike any other president before him, shies away from his own record during his reelection. Wonder why?
So, for a man running on the slogan “Forward,” they’re not quite carrying it out when they bring up racial issues from the past. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, what does it say about a man who gains success by dividing a nation? Our president is doing just that – he and his entire campaign work to divide the nation so they can conquer it. Once conquered, they’ll continue to not follow the Constitution, rule based on Executive Order, and fundamentally change America into a weak, mediocre nation.
