Biden visits N.C. to share his economic message

WINSTON-SALEM – In a former tobacco warehouse-turned medical building, Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday laid out a “to-do” list the Obama administration gave to U.S. House and Senate leaders that focuses on clean energy, creating jobs for veterans and putting cash into the pockets of working families.

Biden and the administration have been swarming the swing state of North Carolina with an economic message that talks up the administration’s efforts to create jobs and bolster the economy for the middle class. He spoke to approximately 600 onlookers in the Wake Forest Biotech Place in Winston-Salem that is part of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

“This is a make or break moment for America’s middle class that’s been losing ground for the last 15 years and has been hemorrhaging the last five,” Biden said. “We’re determined to act folks.”

After his speech, Biden made an unannounced stop at Wolfies Gourmet Frozen Custard in the city. He ate a double-dip vanilla and dark chocolate cone and chatted with constituents about the economy.

During his speech, he took a jab at the economic plan by Republican chief budget-writer in the U.S. House Paul Ryan that he said would ruin research and development like that done at the medical building in the central part of the state.

“He’s a fine handsome guy from the state of Wisconsin, but I think his ideas are not nearly as fine as he is a man,” Biden said of Ryan. “I think the Ryan budget will have a devastating effect on America.”

Biden’s visit capped of a flurry of economic banter between President Barack Obama and presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney that has filled the Tarheel state, which has the highest unemployment rate in the nation. The day before, Ryan was in Raleigh at the behest of the Romney campaign.

He met with politicians, businessmen and fans at a downtown Raleigh restaurant Tuesday morning that features confederate memorabilia hanging on the walls. He talked about closing corporate loopholes and criticized Obama’s health care plan and his handling of the economy.

“It’s like we’re driving a car with two feet just stopping and starting and stopping and starting,” Ryan said while making driving motions with his hands. “It’s so unpredictable.”

Ryan lobbied to remove tax loopholes for the wealthy and to shut down tax shelters.

“We really believe there is a bipartisan consensus to be had...” he said. “What we need is to win this election.”

Ryan continued to dodge questions about the vice presidency.

Democratic National Committee Communications Director Brad Woodhouse held a conference call before Ryan’s event and said the congressman’s North Carolina visit on the day of the failed Wisconsin recall election was an “audition” for the vice presidency.

“Ryan has been treated like a wunderkind for literally pulling off the shelf the same crap the Republican Party has proposed over and over,” Woodhouse said.

The North Carolina Democratic Party organized protesters at the Ryan roundtable.

Protestor Frances Lippette raised a sign that said “Say no to the Ryan-Romney budget” and shouted at Ryan as he addressed the media outside.

“Everyone here is not happy to see you,” she said.

North Carolina has become a frequent stomping ground for both camps since February including visits from the president and first lady.

Former-and-almost presidential candidates Tim Pawlenty, Rick Perry and Donald Trump visited last weekend on behalf of Romney. NC House Speaker Thom Tillis, on behalf of the Romney campaign, held a conference call Monday where he lauded the former Massachusetts governor’s economic record and bashed President Obama’s.

Tillis believes North Carolinians are in store for more Romney visits.

“Governor Romney understands North Carolina is a priority,” Tillis said.

Romney campaigned in Charlotte a week before Obama’s April visit about jobs, gas prices and health care costs across the street from the Bank of America Stadium where Obama is scheduled to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for a second term in September. It marks the first time a major party has held a nominating convention in the state.

But what was once seen as a bright spot on the political landscape for the president, which he narrowly won by 14,000 votes in 2008, has now become more muddied with the national convention looming.

In the latest Elon University economic poll, released in April, 42 percent of participants indicated an unfavorable view of Obama and 54 percent disapproved of how he is handling the economy. Romney received unfavorable ratings from 43 percent of the people polled.
