Biden has condescended to Black Americans by telling them, in an affected dialect, that the Republicans want to “put ya’ll back in chains.” Today in Minnesota, he called the GOP a bunch of “squealing pigs.” And next week he’s going to crash a tradition of keeping a low profile during the opposing parties convention by visiting Tampa on the first day of the GOP convention.
There are no longer any traditions or rules that apply, as far as the Obama campaign is concerned. It goes without saying that civility is gone.
Last week the dems circled the wagons around Biden (or Buffoden, as I like to call him) over the furor of his remark in VA. And it was all okay. Stephanie Cutter even approved of his comments. But Akin is being excoriated for his Sunday statements in an interview about rape and abortion. I listened to the full interview and aside from his statements being stupid, I wasn’t offended. Everyone was calling for him to pull out of the race and as you all know now, he refused to. Frankly, I’m glad he didn’t. We should have circled around him just as the dems do their buffoon. The dems spin everything Buffooden says to be “not so stupid, after all.” We could learn a lesson from them in that regard. The difference and the problem is that they have the media on their side and we don’t. It’s easier to spin when the press don’t ask any follow-up questions or challenge you.
On the other hand, I give the American people more credit and I hope I’m not disappointed – again – in November. I hope they see through this unseemly behavior by the left and I think that most of them do, now.
