On Politico Romney camp wants Obama to denounce Biden's 'slanderous' remark I can understand why Mitt is upset. There nothing in the Romney-Ryan plan about re-introducing chattel slavery... that's more of a second term kind of thing. Biden is of course being metaphorical in the most fear-mongering hysterical sort of way. The resort to racially tinged Dixie speak is a nice rabble rousing touch. Not much hopey-changey on display, it really does rival Rove's magnificently dirty 04 campaign.
