The Romney campaign is accusing team Obama of reaching a "new low" Tuesday when Biden warned that without regulation, Wall Street would take advantage of the American people.
"Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they're proposing. Romney wants to let the -- he said the first 100 days -- he's gonna let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street," Biden said at an event in Danville, Va. "They gonna put y'all back in chains."
That prompted the aresponse from Andrea Saul, press secretary for the Romney campaign:
After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Gov. Romney, the Obama campaign has reached a new low. The comments made by the vice president of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama campaign will say and do anything to win this election. President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments.
Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for the Obama campaign, pushed back on MSNBC Tuesday afternoon. "I appreciate the faux outrage of the Romney campaign," Cutter said.
