Adalla ... Don't you just hate it when you and Charlie Wrangel don't agree --especially when you have to admit that he's right???

Watch the video, it's obviously not racist.

He was only acting like the trained monkey that little d's are. Fear instead of facts is the rule.

Curiosity is not being over sensitive. And just because you said it wasn't racist doesn't mean everyone sees it as you do adalia. The tone of the presidential campaign I did take it is race baiting. Just Ike I said earlier its selective behavior from others that just pisses me off

No, he can say what what he wants. But he should be embarrassed and know that it just makes him look like an idiot.

Nope. Y'all just over sensitive, it's not like you or someone you ever met or knew was a slave.

Biden wasn't BEING racist, he was overtly accusing the Republican candidate of being racist; of wanting to see black people "back in chains." It's in really poor taste to throw around accusations of racism, especially without any real basis. Deregulating wall st = slavery? What a load of crap.

It's offensive and he should apologize.

I don't agree with the comment but I also don't think he should apologize. That's the way he feels and that's his opinion. Are we not allowed to have an opinion anymore?

I been in a black hole so not sure what the fuss is about. However, it seems odd that Biden would say anything hatefully. He is too laid back and relaxed to get into hate mode. I know that I asked a coworker for a rubber when I first got here. She never did tell me what was wrong. Cultural slant

Accepted by the minorities. People of color are the loudest to point out if they feel someone is being racist unless of course it's someone who may have there "best interest" at heart or it benefits them.

Palin, it's not what you said but how you said it! Yes, there are posts that have chosen to "ignore" Mr Biden's remark although they would not have done so if it was the Mr Romney or Ryan. Your attitude to me is what is so wrong with this country. The selective attitude depending if they are

Pali - You don't get it. The Fed DOESN'T regulate wall st. The SEC is NOT a govt organization, it's part of an old agreement between wall st and the fed that allows them to regulate themselves. Get it? There is NO federal oversight. Not then, not now.

Wow dems. You just can't admit when your side messes up. Can you honestly say that is Ryan or Romney or anyone you don't like said that, that you wouldn't be crying racism from the mountain tops? You would want them to resign !!!

Hap- apparently i'm not the only person who didn't think it sounded racist. Read the other comments

The context he said it in was correct, he should not have to apologize. He was talking about being chained to Wall Street and Romney's policies would "put us back in chains". It was in no way shape or form racist

Recall the question who would make a better president Biden or Ryan. I think it's pretty clear after this.

That this guy is a heartbeat away from the presidency is absolutely frightening.

Dems need to put a muzzle on Biden until they find a replacement for VP. They probably won't though since Palin suggested Hilary Clinton.

I'm a Republican. Why should he? It's true. Romney's policies would put us Americans back into chains by Wall Street. Regulation is drastically vital for Wall Street and the big banks.

What he meant to say was that under a Mitt Romney presidency, the average, hard-working, middle-class American will be put in chains by the corporate plutocrats and their Washington cronies. Uncle Joe just forgot that under Obama the same is true, as will be under Romney.

Apologize to who? Anybody calling for an apology wouldn't vote for him anyway!

Palin, You think because of your mixed nationality, you giving Biden a pass because he is a " brother" was asinine. It's amazing if Romney said this all hell would break lose. You sound racist yourself.

It was an idiotic comment, but I just think it shows his true self. People need thicker skin. People choose to take offense even if it wasn't an intentionally rude comment. He'd have to apologize every time he opens his mouth.

He's an idiot and anyone who believes him is one also! Seriously the racist person is America doesn't want to put blacks "back in chains".

And Adalla- that's not what this is about. But yes, I feel the Obama administration did something (although it was hugely lacking) by placing greater regulations on Wall St... Things Romney wants to repeal (once again setting up the conditions for 'Too Big to Fail' and the 2008 market collapse)

The real news flash is that Joe Biden is an idiot that is one step away from being president. And the person who saddled the nation with that terrible burden is MrO.

This is yet another reason why we must have a change. Mr Romney chose as his running mate a guy with sensible ideas, not an idiot.

Making light of our history as a slaveholding nation is not equal to hurt feelings. No one, white black or otherwise should "go there."

I tend to not be politically correct, most of the time it's just because we've became a nation of cry baby's that get feeling hurt. However I would not even have stooped as low as joe the buffoon.

Republicans and Democrats both want you in chains and don't ever think they want anything else.

He might as well just apologize every time he opens his mouth. He's an idiot.
