Vice President Joe Biden used a southern accent, on Tuesday, during a campaign stop in Danville, Virginia to warn supporters that the Republicans were going to put “y’all back in chains.”
Vice President Biden said: “Look at their budget, and what they are proposing. Romney said in the first hundred days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street... they going to put y’all back in chains.”
Mitt Romney has previously stated his opposition to the Dodd-Frank bill, also known as the financial reform billm which was signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2010. The bill was designed to stop risky practices and prevent another Wall Street meltdown like the one in 2008.
The Romney campaign hit back today, accusing the Obama campaign of "gutter politics."
Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul in a statement: “After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney, the Obama campaign has reached a new low."
"The comments made by the vice president of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama campaign will say and do anything to win this election. President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments.”
