Vice President Joe Biden is pretty well-known as an orator, just not like you may think.
He's famous for his slipups when giving a speech. In other words, he's the Abe Lincoln of the modern gaffe.
And this week, Joe gave his Gettysburg Address – a speech with gaffes offending people on both sides of the election.
Here's what happened: while speaking at a campaign rally to supporters, Joe told the crowd that Mitt Romney would repeal regulations on the big banks, essentially creating an " unchained Wall Street." Joe then added: "He's gonna put y'all back in chains." The problem? The crowd seemed to be predominately African-American and Joe seemed to be implying that Mitt was pro-slavery. You can see why some people on the other side were offended.

But, Joe didn't stop there. He went on to tell supporters that with their help, "we can win North Carolina again!"
The problem? The rally was in Virginia. You can see why some of the people on Joe's side were pissed.

No matter if you're conservative, liberal, or moderate, you have to admit that is an impressive feat.
Nicely done, Joe!
