Vice President Joe Biden mounted a vigorous attack against Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, setting up a direct comparison between President Obama and his Republican rival. NY1's Grace Rauh filed the following report.

Vice President Joe Biden has a front-row seat in Barack Obama's White House. He used his position to make the case Thursday for why the president deserves another four years.

"Folks, I've watched him," Biden said. "He never wavers. He steps up. He asks the same thing over and over again: How is this going to work for ordinary families? Will it help them?"

Biden quickly turned to Obama's Republican rival, Mitt Romney. Using the auto industry rescue and death of Osama bin Laden as examples, Biden detailed the differences between the two candidates for president. He said Obama rescued the auto industry while Romney was willing to let Detroit go bankrupt.

"I think he saw it the Bain way," Biden said. "Balance sheets. Write-offs. The Bain way may bring your firm the highest profit but it's not the way to lead your country from the highest office."

As for bin Laden, Biden says Romney did not think it was worth moving heaven and earth to catch one person. Obama promised to take him out if he was in sight.

"Because of all the actions he took, because of the calls he made and because of the grit and determination of American workers and the unparalled bravery of our special forces, we can now proudly say Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive," Biden said.

The vice president is known for sticking his foot in his mouth but he stuck close to the script in his convention speech.

"There is only one choice and the choice is to move forward, boldly forward," Biden said.

It was a forceful push for another four years. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
