Today was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Joe Biden appearing at a rally in Danville, Virginia, a city where almost 50% if the population is African-American and suggests that Romney was symbolically bring back slavery.
“They’ve said it, every Republican 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 hundred days he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put y’all back in chains. He said he’s going to do nothing about stopping the practice of outsourcing.”

At his campaign stop tonight, Mitt Romney let the President have it…he personally blasted the Obama campaign saying the President and Vice President Biden are “what an angry and desperate Presidency looks like.”

“Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago,” Romney said while campaigning in Ohio.
“His campaign and his surrogates have made wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the Presidency. Another outrageous charge came a few hours ago in Virginia. And the White House sinks a little bit lower,” Romney said.
“This is an election in which we should be talking about the path ahead, but you don’t hear any answers coming from President Obama’s re-election campaign. That’s because he’s intellectually exhausted, out of ideas, and out of energy. And so his campaign has resorted to diversions and distractions, to demagoguing and defaming others. This is an old game in politics; what’s different this year is that the president is taking things to a new low.”
Romney’s remarks echo those of his campaign spokeswoman, who earlier in the day called Biden’s remarks a “new low.”
Perhaps its the cynic in me, but Romney may have seized upon this theme to bring down the president’s likability numbers. In recent weeks, Romney’s likability numbers have fallen off compared to Obama’s and the President’s mean-spirited campaigning as of late provide Romney with the ideal opportunity to show the President as he truly is…a Chicago politician who will do anything, even lie to get what he wants.
