President Obama: No Apologies, No Scolding for VP's Remark

President Obama: No Apologies, No Scolding for Joe Biden's Remark

Originally posted 08/15/2012 07:00PM

Vice President Joe Biden may have sparked the latest war of words in the presidential campaign, but he'll get no talking-to from the boss on this one. Just a small sigh – and a vote of confidence.

PEOPLE sat down with President Obama one day after Biden's remark to voters in Virginia on Tuesday – that GOP running mates Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan are "going to put y'all back in chains" – and asked the President if he'd spoken to Biden about the controversial comment.

"Joe Biden has been an outstanding vice president. He is passionate about what's happening in middle-class families," he said. "So I will be talking to him a whole lot about the campaign generally."

Biden's comment sparked Romney to call the Obama campaign one of "division and hate and anger." But Obama, speaking to PEOPLE in Dubuque, Iowa, seemed unrattled by the controversy. He said Biden's words needed to be considered in context; that he was only saying "you, consumers, the American people, will be a lot worse off if we repeal these [Wall Street reform] laws as the other side is suggesting."

The two candidates, Mrs. Ryan and Romney's wife, Ann, laughed easily aboard their campaign bus between stops in North Carolina.
