Obama campaign spokesman: We have no objection to Biden’s “chains” comment

posted at 4:41 pm on August 14, 2012 by Allahpundit

A glorious return to the spotlight for Stephanie Cutter, who canceled her weekend appearances on national news shows after she got caught lying about Team O’s last big smear. The defense here, as always when someone in Obamaland says something stupid and unhelpful, is that Biden’s being taken out of context. Watch the whole clip, she says, and it’s clear that he’s talking about Wall Street deregulation, not slavery. Which is super, but it doesn’t remotely explain the sudden change in accent and diction. If he wanted to make a point about deregulation, however hysterical and unfair, he could have said, “They want to put you in chains.” He didn’t. Jake Tapper:

“We got a real clear picture of what they all value,” Biden said. “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 hundred days he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, ‘unchain Wall Street.’ They’re going to put y’all back in chains.”

An Obama campaign official tells ABC News that “as the full quote makes obvious, the Vice President was clearly using a metaphor to describe the devastating impact of deregulating Wall Street and the financial industry, as well as how Governor Romney’s policies would take us back to the same failed formula that led to the 2008 financial crisis – the same failed formula that benefitted a few, but crashed our economy and hurt the middle class.”…

Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul said, “In case anyone was wondering just how low President Obama could go in his campaign for re-election, we now know he’s willing to say that Governor Romney wants to put people back in chains. Whether its accusing Mitt Romney of being a felon, having been responsible for a woman’s tragic death or now wanting to put people in chains, there’s no question that because of the President’s failed record he’s been reduced to a desperate campaign based on division and demonization.”

I think Biden laid it on even thicker than that: To my ear, it sounds like he says “they,” not “they’re,” at the start of the money line. How come? Does he typically lapse into southern vernacular, replete with “y’alls,” when he’s in Virginia or discussing financial deregulation? Or is this exactly what it looks like, a racial smear aimed at Romney that Biden, in his immaculate idiocy, felt he needed to deliver in a “black accent” just in case anyone missed the barely-veiled double meaning? Other prominent Democrats, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore most notably, have also experienced miraculous metamorphoses in their speech patterns in front of black audiences. (Hillary’s been especially sleazy with her choice of racial metaphors at times too, which is why it was so enjoyable to watch Team O and its surrogates lob charges of racism at her during the primaries four years ago.) But this is the first time I can recall one of them changing their accent to punctuate a racial dig at the opposition. Makes sense, though: Per Jim Geraghty’s post yesterday, they’re in a mad scramble right now to destroy Paul Ryan’s Boy Scout image and frame him as something evil. A slavery metaphor aimed squarely at black listeners shows they’re not messing around.

Here’s Cutter rubber-stamping what he said. Why shouldn’t she? The campaign almost certainly put him up to it.

A metaphor? Even if that’s what really happened(it isn’t, BTW), you have to tread lightly when doing that. You don’t ever make a reference to chains or any other slave imagery when speaking to a predominantly black audience.

I think the Obama campaign is planting the seeds of its future destruction right now. They’re desperate to destroy Ryan and rightfully so, but going this over the top, nearly every day, is going to turn off anyone who’s not deep, deep in Obama’s corner anyway. It’s clear from the tones of the two campaigns who the adults are.

LukeinNE on August 14, 2012 at 4:54 PM

The Obamedia are scrambling here to avoid mentioning that Biden was speaking in a town that is 70% black, and so was the audience. No mention of this in the article at The Hill. And that changes EVERYTING. In this case, it as ALL about context.

There is NO WAY that comment was not in his script, and it was written that way on purpose. Romney and other Republicans HAVE spoken of “unshackling” business from excessive regulation. Team Obama thought “chains” would be a more subtle word and they would get away with it. This is how they roll, they think they can shut up Romney and preempt his best attack lines by turning them into something racial.

And they say Republicans use dog whistles? As Iowahawk tweetes earlier, this was a kazoo.

And talk about chutzpah, for Cutter to now say we need to get back to the issues is beyond rich.
