As if telling your African American supporters that your opponent wants to “put y’all back in chains,” Vice President Joe Biden has doubled down on the negative rhetoric with a whole new attack.  At a campaign event in Nevada today, Biden told an audience of supporters that bullets from Paul Ryan and other Republican “Young Guns” are aimed at them.

WATCH:

The Romney campaign was quick to respond to Biden’s comments with a statement of their own:

“Today’s over-the-top rhetoric by Vice President Biden is disappointing, but not all that surprising. In the absence of a vision or plan to move the country forward, the Vice President is left only with ugly political attacks beneath the dignity of the office he occupies. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will bring serious leadership to Washington that will focus on an agenda of job creation and economic growth that benefits all Americans.”
