Biden in Florida: "Romnesia" spreading to Ryan | News
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden is picking up on his boss' new word, telling a crowd that "Romnesia" must be contagious because it's spreading to Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan.
A day after President Barack Obama used "Romnesia" to describe what he says are Republican Mitt Romney's changing positions, Biden worked it into his 38-minute speech Saturday.
Biden said, "That man is contagious. Congressman Ryan caught it as well."
He then told about 950 people gathered in a basketball gym that Ryan is giving a new explanation for the budget he proposed in the House, saying it's not cutting the budget, but rather slows its growth.
Earlier, Biden stopped by an Orlando-area campaign office to greet volunteers as part of a two-day swing through crucial Florida.
