‘Biden told the truth’
Several weeks ago Vice President Joe Biden appeared in Virginia before a group of supporters, a number of them African American, and said this of Republican Mitt Romney: “He is going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, unchain Wall Street. He is going to put y’all back in chains.” Republicans, and some Democrats, are accusing Biden of playing the race card. Were Biden’s remarks inappropriate or accurate?
Not only was Joe Biden’s statement appropriate, they were totally necessary and right. He was addressing not only African Americans, but the working class as a whole.
I don’t think Joe Biden was wrong for saying what he said. He was telling the truth and I heard somewhere the truth will set you free. More people, and especially politicians, need to practice telling the truth and setting people free.
I think his remarks were 100 percent correct and accurate. As I watched Republicans and some Democrats denounce the vice president, it made me sick. He was being honest. Somebody needs to be honest with us. Retrenchment is taking place all over America. More so in Detroit than any other place with the fascist emergency manager law.
