Green Bay (WQOW/WBAY) - Joe Biden was in Green
Bay Sunday afternoon at the National Railroad
Museum. Biden played the
role of attack dog on the Republican opposition, accusing the Romney-Ryan
campaign of planning to attack Medicare and Medicaid and social security. Biden
says Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan, forgets that when he was elected to Congress,
a Democrat was in the white house, there was a budget surplus, and the middle
class was thriving.
"They say they want
to 'Restore the dreams and greatness of America.' What they're not telling
you is who took them away. What they're not telling you is the policy the
congressman has supported for the past 14 years, the very economic policy the
governor supported -- both as governor and a businessman -- are the very
policies that put America's
greatness in jeopardy."
president, whose son served in Iraq,
also chided the Republican nominee for not mentioning the troops still serving
overseas in his party's acceptance speech last Thursday night. Biden suggested Romney
would get us into more wars.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden has delivered a familiar script in Green Bay, sticking to standard themes during a brief campaign stop.
Biden appeared Sunday at the National Railroad Museum, where he argued that it was Democrats who would protect the middle class.
Biden says Republicans talk about restoring America, but he says it was the GOP whose policies had weakened the U.S. He says Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would take America back to the same policies that led to the economic downturn
Republican Mitt Romney's campaign counters that the Obama administration has failed to offer solutions to Wisconsin or the nation.
Sunday's stop was part of the Obama-Biden campaign's "Road to Charlotte" tour. The appearance precedes the Democratic National Convention, which starts Tuesday in North Carolina.
