Chia Biden - Sometimes the defense is worse than the offense

Chia Biden defending his "Dunkin/7-11" remark earlier this week:

"Facing criticism, potential 2008 presidential candidate Joe Biden on Friday defended his recent remark that "you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent."

The Delaware senator said his words were taken out of context.

On a recent edition of the C-SPAN series "Road to the White House," Biden is shown in New Hampshire boasting about his support among Indian-Americans.

"I've had a great relationship. In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking," the senator said.

The clip made its way through cyberspace this week and caught fire in Washington, where Biden is known as one of the more long-winded senators.

Visiting troops and officials in Iraq this week, Biden was asked about the comment during an interview with CNN's "The Situation Room."

The senator said he has had an "incredibly strong" relationship with the Indian-American community in Delaware and that his comment was misinterpreted.

"I was making the point that up until now in my state, we've had a strong Indian community made up of leading scientists and researchers and engineers," Biden said. Lately, he said: "We're having middle-class people move to Delaware, take over Dunkin' Donuts, take over businesses, just like other immigrant groups have, and I was saying that ... they're growing, it's moving."

Out of context? He wasn't talking about "ownership", he said, "You can't go to a 7-Eleven or Dunkin' Donuts UNLESS you have a slight indian accent." There is nothing to "out of context" here. The meaning of what you meant was clear. It's like saying, "I like black people, in fact, in the past my family owned a few!" defense to a charge of racism.

Again, the MSM is giving Chia a pass on this, but we're not the MSM and we'll continue to remind readers forever, because is far from an isolated incident. Democrats are quick to call Republican's racist, while in fact they have the history of racism behind them.

Whether it's Hillary and her racist statement of indians and gas stations, where again we see an example of a lame apology, or her "plantation remarks", or Chia now coming out of the closet, the Democrats are defined by their words.

Sometimes it's better to just shut the hell up, although Biden is constitutionally incapable of doing that.
