Biden touts Obama’s record, highlights differences with GOP



GREEN BAY -- Making a stop here just two days before the start of the Democratic National Convention, Vice President Joe Biden took shots at Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, saying the GOP ticket offers nothing new or different.

“We’ve seen this movie before and we know how it ends. It ended in the Great Recession of 2008,” Biden said. “They want us to go back to the social policies of the 1960s, foreign policies of the Cold War and the economics that led to the Great Recession. Do they think we have amnesia? That we don’t remember who was in charge when things fell apart? They were.”

Biden’s stop at the National Railroad Museum on his way to the convention in Charlotte, N.C., gave the crowd a taste of what to expect at the convention as the vice president talked up the Obama Administration’s successes.

“The country faces the most starkest differences in a presidential election that I can ever remember. President Obama and I want to keep moving the country forward in the right direction while Romney and Ryan want to take us back to failed policies that didn’t work,” Biden said.
