On the tail of Joe Biden’s “chains” comment, the Romney campaign stuck swiftly, pointing to the Vice President’s remarks as “what an angry and desperate Presidency looks like.”

Romney added “Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.”

The Obama campaign responded by saying that “Governor Romney’s comments tonight seemed unhinged, and particularly strange coming at a time when he’s pouring tens of millions of dollars into negative ads that are demonstrably false.”

I’m waiting for the “neener, neener, neeners” and the mom jokes to break out between the two sides.

    How does the Biden chains comment stack up against the Allen macacca incident

      For R’s, it would be a deal breaker, and they’d have to resign.

      For D’s, it’s just another day at the office, and the MSM ignores it or minimizes it as much as possible.

    Maybe reality is blurred through my rose colored glasses but I have yet to see the kind of negativity and personal attacks from Team Romney as I am seeing from Team Obama. The Romney camp does attack ruthlessly on Obama’s failed policies and leadership. But, where are the equivalent kinds of direct personal attacks towards Obama? Mitt has been accused of waging a war on women, being a felon, being a tax dodger, being a racist, being a wife killer, and now a slave driver. I think Team Romney has adopted a good strategy over the last week of avoiding trying to answer for all the absurd attacks and now are simply calling out the The One for overseeing a campaign that is rolling in the mud. Romney is using the attacks leveled at him to attack Obama’s greatest asset, his likability. It serves two purposes. To bring down Obama’s likability numbers and to bring up his own by being seen as taking the high ground.

    I love how Team Romney has teed up the Medicare discussion. The Dems believed that the issue was a “gift” for them and even likened it to Christmas. But, Team Obama has received coal in their stockings and not the candy and cookies they were hoping for. Team Romney has set itmupmto use the Medicare discussion to remind the voters that the very unpopular Obamacare has led to the cuts of $700 billion from current recipients. Team Romney knew that an attack on Obamacre on the cuts from Medicare was going to be countered by an Obama linkage to the Ryan Plan. What Team Romney has done is set themselves up for the counter and not just a few jabs put a knockout upper cut.

      I agree… Romney has been ruthless on Obama’s record, but Obama has taken negative ads and dirty campaigning to a new low… I knew it would get ugly, but I never imagined anyone would stoop this low.

      Yep. Romney gets barraged with personal trash all day long, and nothing is held against the D’s. But when Romney calls them out himself, suddenly it’s coarse and dirty on both sides. Abject hypocrisy and journalistic epic failure.
