Video: Rick Santorum Says the Word 'Y’All' is 'Divisive'

| by Michael Allen

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum told CNN, this weekend, that Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama are “dividing this country” with the word “y’all.”

Santorum was referring to the comment made by Vice President Biden last week in Danville, Virginia, when he told an audience "They're gonna put y'all back in chains," reports RawStory.com.

Santorum told CNN host Jim Acosta: “I think what he’s talking about is the tone of the Obama campaign, which is divisive. To go out and do what [Obama's] doing and divide this country, and he is, and it’s class warfare at its worst.”

“And then you saw Vice President Biden play the race card in Virginia. “Y’all? Y’all is y’all. And in a group, you know, I’ve been in groups like that and, you know, it’s very easy when you’re in a group of people that, you know, when you’re in the South, when you’re up in different areas of the country with different groups of people, you develop an affinity with the groups you’re speaking in front of."

"That’s what Vice President [Biden] was doing. He was trying to develop that affinity. And he did so in a very horrendous way, and he should apologize for it.”
