Silly people, didn’t you know slavery metaphors were a distraction?
President Barack Obama’s deputy campaign manager said Sunday that Vice President Joe Biden’s “chains” comment was a “distraction from the larger point” he was trying to make.
“Let’s look at what the vice president said. Speaker [John] Boehner and even Paul Ryan have been traveling this country talking about the need to unshackle the private sector, to unshackle the financial industry,” Stephanie Cutter said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And the vice president was just taking that metaphor a step further and talking about wanting to put other people in shackles. And the word that he used, chains, is a distraction from the larger argument.”
Oh, OK. Thanks for clearing that up.
Besides, all of this is fine since ROmney has been calling Obama un-American or something.
“If we want to talk about words on the campaign trail that are poor choices of words, let’s talk about Mitt Romney’s: when he’s been traveling for the last few years basically calling the president un-American, that the president wanted to make this a less Christian nation,” Cutter said. “Those are poor choices of words and that’s what we find completely offensive. So this faux outrage by Mitt Romney complaining and whining about the tone of this race, is really completely hypocritical.”
So they’re completely offended by something Romney has never done (seriously, has he ever called Obama un-American), yet Romney is expressing “faux outrage” over being accused of wanting to enslave blacks.
This woman is psychotic.
