Tell it like it is

I don’t mind if Keith Hansen pokes a little fun at Joe Biden’s gaffes.

But I don’t think Mr. Hansen should try to change the meaning of them. When he said that Joe Biden wanted to put chains back on African Americans, he was way off base. I think he should know of what he prints. I saw that talk and Biden said the chains were lifted off Wall Street (de-regulated) and look what happened. Maybe we should put them back in chains, Wall Street not African Americans.

After all, who had more gaffes than Bush and he still managed somehow to get re-elected.

Are Republicans so desperate that if a Democrat mentions the word “chains” in a southern state, he is said to be referring to enslaving black America?
