Joe Biden Refers To Mitt Romney As “Bush On Steroids”
President Obama’s right hand man is at it again. And this time he’s taking shots at GOP Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
Vice President Joe Biden appeared at a Monday fundraiser in Seattle, where he borrowed a little material from former President Bill Clinton to slam GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
According to a pool report, Biden compared Romney’s economic policies to “George Bush on steroids,” before acknowledging he had picked up the jab from Clinton.
Appearing on stage with Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), a champion of women’s issues in Congress, Biden continued to take shots at Romney and the GOP for their opposition to Planned Parenthood and access to birth control.
“Governor Romney and this new Republican Party — they have a social policy right out of the 1950s,” he said.
Biden also reportedly took aim at renewed GOP efforts to enact voter ID laws in a number of states, such as Pennsylvania and Ohio.
The vice president joked, “Republicans have changed the law so you get arrested if you do vote” and said their moves were an effort “to essentially try to intimidate people, tak[e] people off the rolls.”
