“These personal attacks, I think, are demeaning to the office of the White House and I think the comments yesterday by the vice president … just diminish the White House that much more,” Romney said.
It was the second straight appearance wherein Romney referenced Biden’s remark Tuesday that Republican economic policies would “put y’all back in chains.”
The vice president made the comment while campaigning in Virginia, during a discussion of Wall Street regulation.
“They’ve said it. 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 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules — unchain Wall Street,” Biden said. “They’re going to put y’all back in chains. He’s said he’s going to do nothing about stopping the practice of outsourcing.”
On Wednesday, Romney said that “comments of this nature sink the White House just a little lower.”
“The comments of the vice president were one more example of a divisive effort to keep from talking about the real issues. Look, nobody is talking about deregulating Wall Street,” Romney said.
